Miley Cyrus: No more 'Hannah Montana' films
LOS ANGELES - Miley Cyrus plans to be back on the big screen, and soon. Hannah Montana? Not likely after her latest film.
So said the 16-year-old tween phenom, whose alter ego brings her secret double life as a pop star to theaters April 10 with 'Hannah Montana: The Movie.'
'We got really lucky with having the material to make one movie,' Cyrus said in an interview Monday. The film reveals Hannah Montana's identity to the world in a way Cyrus said is 'very clever' and diminishes the chances of a sequel - but doesn't dampen the future of the popular Disney TV show.
The film follows last year's sold-out Cyrus-Montana concert tour and her 'Best of Both Worlds Concert' 3-D movie.
Makeup, fashion gurus sue Queen Latifah
NEW YORK - A makeup artist and a fashion stylist claim in coordinated lawsuits that they got ugly treatment from Queen Latifah when she cheated them out of $1 million.
Celebrity cosmetology consultant Roxanna Floyd said she lost $700,000 when the rapper-actress failed to pay her for work she did between July 2005 and February 2008.
In a separate lawsuit, celebrity fashion stylist Susan Moses said she was cheated of $300,000 during the same period.
The lawsuits were filed Monday in federal court in Manhattan.
Amanda Silverman, a spokeswoman for the actress whose roles in movies include 'Hairspray' and 'Mad Money,' said the lawsuits have no merit, but she can't comment more on pending litigation.
