Nico & Vinz Hit #1 in the UK, Release New "Am I Wrong" Video for the U.S

While they haven't managed to top the charts in the U.S., Nico & Vinz have become the first Norwegian act in nearly 30 years to hit #1 on the British singles chart, thanks to their hit "Am I Wrong." The last act from Norway to accomplish this was the '80s group A-ha, with a 1986 tune called "The Sun Always Shines on TV."  You may be more familiar with A-ha's signature hit "Take On Me," which was reworked into the recent Pitbull/Christina Aguilera smash "Feel This Moment." Meanwhile, Nico & Vinz finally have a U.S. video to go along with…

Miley Adds to Menagerie, Adopts Pet Pig

When it comes to acquiring pets, Miley Cyrus "can't stop."  Her latest addition to her menagerie: a pet pig. The singer introduced the tiny porker, Bubba Sue, on Instagram on Sunday, calling it "the newest member to the fam."  We say "it" because we're not sure if the piglet is a male or a female. We're thinking it's a girl, because of the "Sue," and the fact that Miley's painted its little-bitty hooves red. In a series of photos, Miley is seen cuddling the pig on a plane, smooching it, and watching her dog Emu give it kisses.  She captioned…
