A new book claims that Kate Middleton was bullied at her all-girls school when she was about 13 years old. According to a source, "insidious" girls teased Kate for being "skinny" and "meek." "They called her names and they stole her books and stuff — little things like that. They rounded up on her a bit because she was quite a soft and nice person… When she used to go to lunch she would sit down with people and they all used to get up and sit on another table." One report claims that mean girls smeared her bed with excrement, but that account has been denied. Still, if you want to see some cute pix of the future princess when she was a goofy youngster, be sure to click through. [Daily Mail]

Miley Cyrus is glad she quit Twitter: "I do not tweet, I do not social network I decided for me it is easier. I complain too much about people knowing about my private life, so to go out there and start exploiting myself in that way would be hypocritical. Sometimes I wish I could just so I could say what really happened. It is nice to use Twitter for that and to have it as a luxury to be able to do a rumor patrol, but it's not worth it, I don't think." [Showbiz Spy]

Bee tee dubs, Miley never dissed Rebecca Black. She insists: "I am a fan of Rebecca Black. I love Rebecca Black. I just got misquoted. I think she's great." [Contact Music]

James Franco also quit Twitter! Quoth he: "Social media is over... My thought was 'This is my Twitter. I can do whatever I want.' But certain companies I work with contacted me about what I was saying." He also has some advice for you wanna be creatives out there: "If you want to write, make the time. We all have an hour or two a day that can be used for surfing Facebook or writing. No one is going to beg any new writer to write." [Wonder Wall, Daily Express]
