Pics: Snooki's New Year Bash Moved to Jersey Shore

December 31, 2010 02:01:43 GMT


"MTV New Year's Bash" featuring Snooki dropped in a giant ball is no longer held at Times Square. It has been moved to Seaside Heights, New Jersey where "Jersey Shore" was shooting for two seasons. The time meanwhile remains intact, beginning at 10.30 P.M. EST on December 31.

The move was made after the organizers at Times Square objected with the stunt they would perform at the outdoor venue at such sudden notice. Seaside Heights borough clerk Diane Stabley told EW that MTV applied for the permission on Wednesday, December 29. "The request to have her in a separate ball on a set-back roof came too late and was too impractical to fit in to our outdoor events," the organizers released a statement.

Michael Jackson's Fans and Estate Executors Want 'Autopsy' Canceled


December 30, 2010 03:45:20 GMT


Michael Jackson's fans and estate are protective of his image, forcing Discovery Channel to cancel the plan to air an upcoming special that re-enacts the late singer's autopsy. John Branca and John McClain who act as Michael's executors have written a letter to the channel's CEO David Zaslav, and they are backed up by more than 9,000 online petitions from fans.

In their letter, the executors said, "Your decision to even schedule this program is in shockingly bad taste, insensitive to Michael's family and appears motivated solely by your blind desire to exploit Michael's death, while cynically attempting to dupe the public into believing this show will have serious medical value."
