Earlier this year, Demi Lovato celebrated five years of sobriety, a major milestone for the pop star, who's been open about her previous addiction struggles. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she voiced support for fellow Disney Channel alum Miley Cyrus, who's now "completely clean" from substances as well. — "I am really proud of Miley," Lovato said. "I think that it helps people to know that there are people in the spotlight that have challenges, that are faced with very stressful lives. I think it helps to know that recovery is possible and it’s something that is so important to certain people like myself." — Cyrus recently told Billboard she's embracing sobriety — "I'm not doing drugs, I'm not drinking, I'm completely clean right now!" — to keep her mind "super clear and sharp" for her new music. People who are stoned, she said, generally aren't helping her evolve as a person. — "I wouldn’t be alive without my sobriety, and the people that are sober today in this industry, I commend them a lot," Lovato continued. "But even in day-to-day life, no matter whether you are from the middle of nowhere or you live in a big city, addiction doesn't discriminate, so whenever you are able to take control back, it’s really admirable."

<p>What is this nightmarish thing I found at the library?</p>: GASTONIA MAIN 5050 9100 070 681 7 POS T M DER N R EDERICK CRE W S AUTHOR OF THE POOH PERPLEX U.S.A. $22.00 Canado $35.00 Nearly forty years ago, a young literary scholar by the name of Frederick Crews had an inspired idea: to portray his trendsetting peers in the act of applying their critical acumen to the adventures of that deceptively simpleminded teddy bear of story- book fame, Winnie-the-Pooh. In incisive chapters entitled "A Bourgeois Writer's Proletarian Fables," "A la recherche du Pooh perdu," and so forth, Freudian and Marxist, New Critic and Neo- Aristotelian alike had at the Pooh texts, dredging up their hidden layers of meaning for the enlight- enment of the hitherto unsuspecting reader. The Pooh Perplex became a bestseller, a "must" read discussed at sherry-and-cheese gatherings from coast to coast. Now Winnie-the-Pooh is three-quarters of a century old-and, alas, Professor Crews lags not far behind. Thanks, however, to the efforts of Princeton's superstar professor N. Mack Hobbs, Crews has been coaxed out of retirement long enough to lend his blessing and his name to a project undertaken in homage to his own-a panel on Pooh convened at the December 2000 Modern Language Association convention irn Washington, D.C., at which the leading lights of contemporary criticism were invited to train their wits upon the beloved bear. Radical feminist Sisera Catheter, Lacanian postcolonialist Das Nuffa Dat, and trailblazing proponents of Deconstruction, Poststructuralist Marxism, New Historicism, Biopoetics, Cultural Studies, and-let (continued on back flap) (continued from front flap) us not forget-recovered memory theory all took their turns at the podium and their shots at dear Edward Bear, leaving no ammunition in the arsenal of contemporary literary hermeneutics unexploded. Here, then, are the published pro- ceedings of this remarkable event, for the edifica- tion (and delectation) of a new generation of readers. FREDERICK CREWS is Professor Emeritus of English at the University of California, Berkeley. <p>What is this nightmarish thing I found at the library?</p>
