Singer and actress Miley Cyrus and actor Liam Hemsworth have called off their engagement, representatives for both stars said on Monday, ending months of speculation that the young couple's relationship was on the rocks. Cyrus, 20, and "Hunger Games" actor Hemsworth, 23, ended their four-year relationship, but no reason was given for the break-up by their representatives. Over the weekend, Cyrus stopped following Hemsworth on social networking site Twitter, which fueled break-up reports in the media. Cyrus first met Australian actor Hemsworth in 2009 on the set of her film "The Last Song," where the two played lovers. The couple announced their engagement in June last year. Former Disney Channel star Cyrus, who shot to fame as the lead in "Hannah Montana," has tried to shed her teen idol image over the years. She captured headlines earlier last month with a provocative and raunchy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards ahead of her upcoming album, "Bangerz." Hemsworth has seen his star rise in Hollywood, playing a leading role in dystopian young adult film franchise "The Hunger Games" and taking on action roles in "The Expendables 2" and "Paranoia."

A new painting by Vincent Van Gogh has been discovered after two years of research to determine its authenticity, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam said today. “Sunset at Montmajour” (1888) -- painted during the artist’s time in the southern French city of Arles -- will be on display from Sept. 24 in the current “Van Gogh at Work” exhibition (ending Jan. 12), the museum said in a news release. It was during the same Arles period that Van Gogh painted his “Sunflowers,” “The Yellow House” and “The Bedroom.” “A discovery of this magnitude has never before occurred in the history of the Van Gogh Museum,” director Axel Rueger said. The work is owned by private collectors who have asked not to be identified, the Van Gogh Museum said. They approached the museum in 2009 to request an expert opinion on the painting. More»

Scarlett Johansson as a predatory alien in Scotland got a lukewarm reception and a film about mutilation and masochism that is banned in the director's native South Korea roused disbelieving laughter at the Venice film festival on Tuesday. Booing followed the customary applause after a press screening of "Under The Skin", a comeback for British director Jonathan Glazer, starring the "Lost in Translation" actress. Described as "an undeniably ambitious but ultimately torpid and silly tale of an alien on the prowl" by trade magazine Variety, "Under the Skin" is one of 20 new films in competition for a prestigious Golden Lion at the 70th annual festival. Korean director Kim Ki-Duk screened "Moebius" outside the competition, which he won last year with "Pieta", an absorbing thriller about a pitiless loan shark. More»

Justin Timberlake won big on Sunday at MTV's annual Video Music Awards, taking home the top prize for video of the year for "Mirrors" and a special achievement honor, and also led a much-anticipated onstage reunion of the boy band 'N Sync.  Hip-hop artists Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars were among other top winners, with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis taking home three awards, including best hip-hop video. But even top VMA nominees had been overshadowed in recent days by the rumored 'N Sync reunion, their first performance since 2002, which took place in the midst of Timberlake's lengthy medley of hits ahead of his accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.  As the star wound down his solo performance, the band's other members rose up through the stage and slowly turned to face the audience, spotlights shining from above. The 'N Sync members then performed another extended medley of hits. "I don't deserve this award," Timberlake, 32, said after TV talk show host Jimmy Fallon presented it to him. "But I'm not going to give it back." More»

A Dutch DJ is bringing underground Egyptian street music to Western night clubs with the hope that it will paint the troubled North African country in a better light. Music producer and DJ Joost Heijthuijsen, 35, from Tilburg in the Netherlands, does not speak Arabic and only visited Egypt for the first time last April. But he is the founder and one-third of "Cairo Liberation Front", a Dutch DJ set dedicated to "mahragan" music, derived from the Arabic word for festival. Also known as "electro-shaabi", it is an unrelenting torrent of synthesizers, chanting and rapping about street culture - touching on sex, drugs and poverty - infused with traditional Arabic rhythms and Egyptian humor. It is low-budget music for the masses. Typically, self-taught DJs circulate their home recordings on their laptops via downloadable files and YouTube. The new sound has flooded Cairo's underground music scene since Egypt's 2011 revolution. But it is spreading across the country and transcending its urban working-class roots even as turmoil grips the nation in the wake of the July 3 military ouster of Egypt's first freely elected leader, Mohamed Morsi.

Dustin Hoffman has been successfully treated for cancer, his representative told ABC News. “It was detected early and he has been surgically cured,” she earlier told People magazine. “Dustin is feeling great and is in good health.” Hoffman, 75, will continue to undergo preventative treatments to minimize the chance of recurrence in the future. His publicist would not elaborate on what type of cancer Hoffman had or how he’d be treating it. A few months ago, the two-time Academy Award winner made his directorial debut with “Quartet.” “I would develop stuff like every other actor,” Hoffman told “Good Morning America.” “The most important part of it is when you’re in your 30s and 40s and 50s, you think you’ve got all the time in the world. Suddenly, you’re 75 — you say, or get off the pot.” The magazine also reported that Hoffman recently wrapped production for “Chef” alongside Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. and was set to begin filming the movie “Boys Choir” later this year or in early 2014.

"The Wolverine," starring Hugh Jackman as Marvel Comics' sharp- clawed superhero, slashed its way to $55 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales to claim the box office crown in a summer that hasn't been kind to some other big-budget action films. "The Conjuring," the low-budget horror film that led last weekend's box office, slipped to second place with $22.1 million in domestic sales from Friday through Sunday, according to studio estimates. The film has generated nearly $84 million in overall ticket sales, a surprisingly strong showing for a film that cost just under $20 million to make. The animated film "Despicable Me 2," featuring the voice of comic actor Steve Carell, finished third with $16 million in ticket sales in its fourth week in movie theaters. The film was made by Universal Pictures and has collected more than $660 million in ticket sales around the world. Animated film "Turbo," about a super-speedy snail with dreams of racing in the Indy 500, took the No. 4 slot with sales of $13.3 million. Ryan Reynolds provides the voice for the title character in the film produced by "Shrek" creator DreamWorks Animation. More»

The scene opens in a Cairo mosque, where men have gathered for Friday prayers. “They ask you about music. Say it’s the tool of the devil,” a voice intones. “It’s haram, haram, haram.” The worshippers call out in agreement; they open their palms upward. There are shouts: “God is great!” “God help you gain more knowledge, our sheikh!” The camera focuses on a handsome young preacher with serious brown eyes. “Singing plants hypocrisy in the heart,” he tells his congregation. “And whoever sees a musical instrument should break it.” After the sermon, he takes a silver BMW to a television studio to tape an episode of his hit show, on the topic of sex before marriage (haram, haram, haram, naturally). “My God, he’s as beautiful as the moon!” says a veiled camerawoman. “Too bad about his extremist views.” The most talked-about television serial in Egypt this Ramadan season may be “Al-Da’iea” (“The Preacher”), the story of a conservative Islamist sheikh whose views draw him closer to the fundamentalist camp even as they alienate his family. Its popularity may seem strange, since millions of Egyptians recently took to the streets to depose their conservative Islamist President. But the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that was underground for almost sixty years and governed the country for just one, still fascinates people, even those who despise it. More»

A sequel to last month's hit "Superman" film "Man of Steel" is not only in the works, but will feature two of DC Comic's best-known caped crusaders - Superman and Batman - facing off against each other, director Zack Snyder said on Saturday. Snyder, who directed British actor Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, was a surprise addition to the end of the Warner Bros. film panel at San Diego's Comic-Con, an annual comics convention, and received thunderous applause from the 6,000-plus in attendance. After announcing the plan to bring the two superheroes together, Snyder issued a statement via Warner Bros. saying the two would be fighting each other, and conceded this might surprise some. "Let's face it, it's beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest superheroes in the world," said Snyder, who has been confirmed as director of the as-yet unnamed sequel.

Late kung fu superstar Bruce Lee may be an international icon, but he is still not the complete local hero in Hong Kong. Fans are marking his death 40 years ago this weekend with art gallery shows, exhibitions and even street graffiti but some people are urging Hong Kong's government to do more to honor the former British colony's biggest star. Lawmakers and scholars have joined calls from fans, fearing the government is wary of fully embracing Lee's legacy. His enduring spirit of youthful rebellion and a willingness to fight big oppressors may have spooked city leaders prone to second-guessing their political masters in Beijing. "The Hong Kong government or the people on top of the governing body are not thinking, first of all, in terms of Hong Kong people's mindset," said Lo Wai-luk, an associate professor in the Academy of Film at Hong Kong Baptist University. "They think of how to do something to please the main Chinese government, or not to violate" what they think Beijing likes, he said. More»
