Chatting with Billy V: September 30, 2010

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Sarah Murdoch — host of Australia's Next Top Model — has a very good explanation for why she announced the wrong winner on live TV: "So having heard the last thing was Kelsey 1, Amanda 2, I went into the read... the winner of Australia's Next Top Model is ... nothing. Nothing. So all I knew was the last thing was Kelsey 1, Amanda 2 ... The point was, it was going to be communicated through my ear and it didn't come at that moment. So I went with what I had been told ... just before that segment. It is a genuine miscommunication. As far as I knew it was the right call."

Cher and Lady Gaga are plotting a cross-generational music collaboration after bonding at the MTV Video Music Awards. The pair met for the first time at the awards ceremony earlier this month, when Cher, 64, presented Gaga, 24, with the Video of the Year prize, and sources claim they became firm friends immediately. The two singers are planning to hit the studio together, according to sources.
