MILEY CYRUS doesn't seem to care that PATRICK SCHWARZENEGGER is back from his Spring Break trip in Cabo San Lucas. Miley went to Austin for a surprise SXSW appearance and then it was off to Las Vegas for an appearance at Caesar's Palace on Saturday night.

In fact, they say a cutesy e-mail address has the same negative effect on recruiters as spelling mistakes on a résumé. The researchers suggest that a cute e-mail address may make people seem less honest and humble and even narcissistic.
