The smiling wax Miley - aka Hannah Montana - is featured in skinny black jeans, a blue and gold silk top, open-toed shoes and, of course, long flowing hair.

Judge: T.I. Can Attend Easter Services

2T.I. didn't get to host a Thanksgiving gathering at the suburban home where he is under house arrest, but he will be able to attend Easter services.

A federal magistrate judge ruled Thursday that the 27-year-old rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, can be away from home from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday for services by New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

Harris is awaiting trial on weapons charges. He must be accompanied by a court-approved monitor and one of his attorneys, the judge said.

The rapper faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each of the weapons charges filed against him. The charges stem from an Oct. 12 arrest after Harris allegedly tried to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers.

Mariah Carey Named "Idol" Mentor

3Mariah will have some little lambs: and try to help them win "American Idol."

The pop star will be one of this year's celebrity mentors to the current crop of Idol wannabes.

She will join Dolly Parton, Neil Diamond and Andrew Lloyd Webber as celebrities brought on to help shepherd the remaining singers through an episode, which usually features heaping gobs of their music.

Carey will also be able to plug her new album, which is due in stores next month.

Madonna Embraces Digital Age

4Madonna's new album "Hard Candy" is going to be available on cell phones before it even hits stores.

According to RollingStone.com, she's making it downloadable to European owners of Vodafone cell phones a week before the album is due in stores on April 29.

It seems Madonna has fully embraced the digital age.

She tried in the past to keep her songs off iTunes, but said she got tired of not being able to download her own music.

She'll be the first artist to release an album via cell phone before the actual release date.

No plans have been made yet for a similar release in the U.S.
