The pharmacy student from Barcelona claimed the illustrious crown at the 65th edition of the world famous pageant in Chinas Sanya. Without the love I have received from all of the people I have met here, and from all of the people wishing me well and supporting me at home, I would never have got to this point, she said in a statement. The second place was awarded to Russias Sofia Nikitchuk, while third went to Indonesias Maria Harfanti. The ceremony was not without some controversy. Officials in Hong Kong last month stopped Miss Canada, Anastasia Lin, from boarding a plane bound for Sanya, telling her she would not receive a visa. The 25-year-old said the decision was because of her stance on Chinas human rights record. Beatles to stream for Christmas LOS ANGELES: The Beatles music is reportedly set to finally be made available on online streaming services just in time for Christmas. The iconic British rock group entered the digital age only in 2010, when label bosses at EMI, the company which owns the recordings, reached a deal with tech experts at Apple to have the Fab Fours songs appear on its downloading software iTunes. Now sources tell Billboard.com the first Beatles tune to stream online will be Hey Jude, which is rumoured to be hitting music platforms such as Spotify on Christmas Eve. The bands extensive back catalogue of studio albums is expected to follow through similar streaming services soon afterwards. Rush for covers as rockers rally for terrorism victims NEW York: A month after the terrorist assault on a concert by Eagles of Death Metal in Paris, prominent music groups are covering one of the bands songs to raise money for the victims. The California rockers announced a campaign to encourage other groups to record interpretations of their song I Love You All the Time. We are calling upon our friends to donate their time, talent and goodwill in a show of solidarity to help the victims of these atrocious acts in Paris and those affected by terrorism worldwide, the band said. Thirteen bands have al ready taken up the challenge including two rock groups that had No. 1 albums in the US this year Imagine Dragons and Florence and the Machine, who collaborated on the song with fellow British rockers The Maccabees. Other prominent bands who have released cov ers of I Love You All the Time include Jimmy Eat World, Kings of Leon and My Morning Jacket. Eagles of Death Metal offered links on their website to buy or stream the cover tracks and said all royalties would go to the Sweet Stuff Foundation, which was set up by band cofounder Josh Homme to support needy musicians but has been transformed into a charity for survivors of the Paris attacks and the victims families.

Confusion reigns over who is liable for refunding tickets to the three cancelled Soundwave festivals in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, after the organiser and ticket seller pointed to each other. Organiser AJ Maddah, who announced on Thursday that the hard rock music festivals scheduled for January would not go ahead, first used his Twitter account to direct fans to Eventopia. The ticket seller fired back with a letter directing out-ofpocket fans to ask the promoter for their money. And in an interview with music website Fasterlouder, Eventopia general manager Martin Curnow said proceeds from Soundwave ticket sales should have been in a trust held by Mr Maddah, as part of what he said was standard industry practice. AJ is in breach of his contract, he said. Mr Maddah said Eventopia knew he was not holding money in trust. They advanced money toward artist deposits and costs, he said. They are fully aware and trying to slime their way out of obligation. Cosbys wife hit by subpoena BOSTON: Lawyers for Bill Cosby say they will fight an attempt to require his wife to give a sworn deposition in a defamation lawsuit filed by seven women who accuse the comedian of sexually assaulting them decades ago. A lawyer for the women has subpoenaed Camille Cosby to be deposed on January 6 at a hotel in Springfield, Massachusetts. But Cosbys lawyers have filed a motion to quash the subpoena, saying she has no first-hand, non-repetitive knowledge of issues. They also argue that any confidential communications between Cosby and his wife are protected by state spousal disqualification rules. The womens lawyer, Joseph Cammarata, had argued he should be able to question Camille Cosby because she was her husbands manager. I think she has information thats relevant to the litigation in this matter, Cammarata said. Cosbys lawyers said Camille Cosby did not have any information about the womens allegations. They also allege that the attempt to subject her to a deposition is nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to pressure defendant in the face of subjecting his wife to the shame and embarrassment of responding to questions about his alleged infidelities and sexual misconduct.
