Actress/singer Miranda Cosgrove suffered a broken ankle Thursday morning when her tour bus crashed into an overturned semi in Illinois. The "iCarly" star will postpone her summer tour until further notice.
Cosgrove, 18, was one of seven hurt when the bus hit the already-overturned truck on Interstate 70 near Vandalia, Ill., about 70 miles northeast of St. Louis, officials said.
The bus driver was listed in fair condition after being airlifted to a St. Louis hospital. The rest of the passengers were said to be in good condition, according to local news station KDSK 5, which shot video of the crash scene, below.
Drew Barrymore gave herself a lesson in modern teen idols as the former child star recently directed a music video starring Chloe Moretz, Miranda Cosgrove, Donald Glover and Tyler Posey of "Teen Wolf."
Best Coast's song "Our Deal" got the video treatment from Barrymore, who combined elements of "Romeo & Juliet" and "West Side Story" for the video, produced with MTV and Mean's Supervideo.
Moretz, of "Kick-Ass" and "Let Me In" fame, plays a pompadoured member of the gang Night Creepers who falls for Posey, a member of the Day Trippers. The star-crossed lovers meet for twilight bonding, but soon confront their fate as born enemies (watch the video below).
Not to spoil anything, but those who stayed awake in freshman English class know it doesn't end well for Romeo and Juliet. Barrymore, however, pulls off a solid effort with some of the teen set's biggest names.
The video serves as an appetizer for Barrymore's next directing gig: helming the feature "How to Be Single," a decade's worth of stories about solo New Yorkers. Her first time behind the camera was in 2009, for the roller-derby flick "Whip It!"
Miranda Cosgrove of "iCarly" fame has been hitting the Kids' Choice Awards for about half of her 16 years -- so of course she's the one who tells us that Nickelodeon's slime is edible. Comes in handy if it hits you in the face.

On TV, the comely AnnaLynne McCord does things like try to seduce her mother’s girlfriend’s ex-husband or publicly expose her sister for sleeping with her boyfriend.
In real life, the bad girl of “90210” and “Nip/Tuck” has better things to do.
Like trash her famous peers for wasting their time in the spotlight with selfish pursuits rather than use it to promote a good cause.
“It disgusts me to hear about endless partying,” she told the crowd of 700 at Variety’s “Power of Youth” event at Paramount Studios on Saturday. “If you’re undeserving of your title, I pray it’s taken away from you and given to someone who’ll use it for the power of youth.”
McCord supports the Blind Project, a New York-based organization helping victims of sex trafficking in Southeast Asia. And while young paparazzi bait settle into first-class seats on flights to the tropics during the holidays, she and her sisters are spending Christmas volunteering in Phnom Penh.
That philanthropic spirit earned McCord a Variety Power of Youth award, along with the charity-minded Corbin Bleu, Miranda Cosgrove, Keke Palmer and Jesse McCartney.
But no one else quite displayed McCord’s fearless je ne sais quoi about the sorry state of much of young Hollywood.
"I’m really over it,” she said backstage. (Click onward for pics and more.)
