A 'GOONIES' SEQUEL IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING

Hey you guys! A Goonies sequel is totally happening. The director of the beloved flick, Richard Donner, confirmed that The Goonies 2 is officially in the works. Donner, 83, was signing autographs when he dropped the bomb on one lucky and unsuspecting TMZ photog. "We're doing a sequel," he said. Donner also said he hopes the cult classic's original cast - which includes Oscar-nominee Josh Brolin, Lord of the Rings star Sean Astin, and '80s teen god Corey Feldman - would all be back. No word yet on if the story will pick up 30 (!) years later with the actors playing the original characters or if the film will be a remake of sorts with the 1985 cast making a cameo. This isn't the first time the idea has been considered. Back in 2010, Donner assured the world it was a no-go. "I don't think there'd be a sequel," he told Collider at the time. "I wouldn't remake it. If anything it'd be something new and fresh." Well, you know what Goonies say: Never say die!

Miley pays tribute to her dead dog on Bangerz tour

Remember how Miley Cyrus was over-the-top heartbroken after the death of her Alaskan Klee Kai Floyd? Well, she still is, and it's become the newest bizarre spectacle on her Bangerz tour. Miley broke down on stage on Wednesday while performing the song Landslide in Boston, E! News reports. "It's gonna be hard for me on this next song. I'm not sounding myself, I don't feel myself. But I just wanna do one song," the 20-year-old singer said, fighting back tears. "I'm sure you guys already know, but the reason that I'm so upset is my dog, I shouldn't say he was my favorite but he was my favorite, he passed away. I just wanna do a song for him. We used to always listen to Fleetwood Mac together." Oh, but it gets better. Miley also performed at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday, where she serenaded an enormous inflatable replica of Floyd, according to Us Weekly. Singing Can't Be Tamed, Miley wrapped herself around the prop's leg. She also dedicated a cover of Coldplay's The Scientist to the pooch, saying, "These have been the hardest days I have ever been through."
