Miley Cyrus has posed naked for a Karl Lagerfeld shot for V Magazine's The Rebel Issue.

The 21-year-old singer, who posed on the cover in a furry blue cut out bathing suit surrounded by stuffed animals, added that it's kind of funny to mess with people and rile them up, because she is actually the 'chillest person', New York Post reported.

Lagerfeld captioned the photograph with a quote about the Wrecking Ball singer, saying that her body is 'youth incarnate' and she is a very decent girl and well educated, who just likes to provoke, since 'what is more fun than to shock the bourgeois anyway?'

Cyrus, who knows that she is not 'pop pop dumb dumb' said that she is a lot more than someone who just goes and shakes her bottom onstage and that it's just funny to watch the world get out of their minds over things that are so irrelevant and don't matter.

The star cast of FRIENDS will come together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the show, it has been revealed.

A source told The Sun that the star cast of the hit US sitcom always stayed in touch and met up in groups.

The cast will reunite over a low-key dinner with the show creators Marta Kauffman, David Crane and Kevin Bright in Los Angeles.

This will be the first time where all the six actors will be in the same room together for the first time since the show ended over 10 years ago.

Gwyneth Paltrow has been advised by school authorities to find safer forms of transport to drop her kids to school after she was caught on video in a near-miss with a school bus last year.

Sources revealed that Patrow and her former husband Chris Martin have been sternly reprimanded to stop taking their children Apple and Moses to and from their Los Angeles school on two Vespa scooters after she was pictured nearly colliding with a bus while picking up one of her kids from school, the New York Post reported.

Sources added that the couple had resorted to the scooters to avoid waiting with other parents and kids in the car-pool line.

However, Paltrow's representative denied the reports and said that last year they occasionally drove the kids to school, but this year the kids have started taking the bus.
