Lady Gaga is the latest star to defend Miley Cyrus after her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards. The "Applause" singer also took to the stage at the annual event and insisted those criticizing the "We Can't Stop" singer's controversial performance should "lighten up" and understand what pop music is all about.
"I don't like to pass judgement on Miley Cyrus. Generally, people need to lighten up about pop music, it's about entertainment. It is here to make you smile and make you happy. Especially in America there is an excessive dragging of female artists and I don't want to contribute to that. I do things that are polarizing sometimes but that's what it's all about," she said.
Nicki Minaj has praised Miley Cyrus after the "We Can't Stop" singer named her as an inspiration. The "High School" rapper has nothing but good things to say about the "cute" star's new look and she is also very impressed by her "twerking" skills - an energetic dance move made popular by Nicki which involves a person shaking, wobbling and bouncing their hips and butt up and down.
Speaking to E! News, Nicki thanked Miley for naming her as one of her top five favorite female singers, adding, "OMG! Miley is so cute and every time I see her I say again and again that she is so damn cute and down to earth. I really love her, what a compliment that was to me. I really love her back. Thanks Miley!"
Miley Cyrus thinks alcohol is more dangerous than marijuana.
The "We Can't Stop" hitmaker, who apologized after she was caught smoking a bong in late 2010 but insisted it was salvia, a legal hallucinogen, at the time, has hinted that rumors she regularly uses the drug are true. When asked whether she is a stoner, the 20-year-old singer laughed and told the July issue of Rolling Stone magazine, "You can't ask someone that and expect them to say yes. I did a song with Snoop Dogg (Snoop Lion) called "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks," so people can put it together for themselves."
Miley, who was given a Bob Marley cake for her 19th birthday and later joked that she smoked "way too much f***ing weed," also revealed she is happy to live in California, where it is legal to use marijuana with a prescription: "I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana -- people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care. I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed. As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it's legal in the state of California. So I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."
Miley Cyrus has dismissed rumors she has sided with her mother in the wake of her parents' split.
The 20-year-old singer, whose mother, Tish, filed for divorce from her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, on Thursday after 19 years of marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences," reached out to her dad on Father's Day on Sunday.
"Happy Daddy Day @Billyraycyrus," she wrote on Twitter, along with a big love heart. The "We Can't Stop" hitmaker sparked speculation that she is on team Tish, after posting a new photograph of them posing together with her younger sister Noah on Saturday with the caption, "The baddest b*****s in the WORLD @noahcyrus @tishcyrus"
Country singer and actor Billy Ray, 51, has yet to officially comment on the divorce but Miley previously hinted that she has not been able to reach him either. In a message posted to him on Twitter on Thursday, she wrote, "@BillyRayCyrus since your text and email obviously aren't working would you like to talk like this?"
Miley Cyrus is "concerned" for her younger sister in the wake of her parents' split.
The "We Can't Stop" hitmaker, whose mother Tish filed for divorce from her husband Billy Ray Cyrus on Thursday after 19 years of marriage, is reportedly doing fine but is worried about her 13-year-old sister Noah. The 20-year-old singer promoted her new single in Chicago just hours after news of her parents' divorce broke and discussed it during an off-air chat with B96 Radio's Showbiz Shelly, who told People.com, "She was in a really good mood, and she was talking about how she worked with Snoop Dogg on her album, and we asked her about her hair and her new look. With everything that's happened, she was very nice and really didn't seem affected. If she was, she was covering it up really well. We really enjoyed having her."
Miley Cyrus has no plans to give Liam Hemsworth back her engagement ring
The 20-year-old singer - who is reportedly still sharing her Toluca Lake mansion in Los Angeles with The Hunger Games star but sleeping in a separate bedroom - wants to hold on to her 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond ring, even though they are splitting.
"To give back the ring would be too permanent this soon. But they are definitely over," a source said.
Another friend claims that their relationship started to crack after they got engaged in June 2012 because Miley, who chopped off her hair and dyed it peroxide blonde in August, has completely changed. "Liam always admired Miley's independence. But this was more like rebellion, and it freaked him out. She has undergone a complete personality change. She's basically thugged out," the source continued.
The friend says Miley's attitude "was grating on him" before their split, adding, "He used to be obsessed with the way she would go wild. But it got more childish to him. He's growing up - and fast."
Selena Gomez has warned Justin Bieber to stay away from Miley Cyrus.
Miley, 20, and The Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth recently called off their engagement and Selena, 20, is reportedly worried her on/off boyfriend Justin will try to hook up with Miley, who he reportedly had a fling with a few years ago.
"Justin and Miley hooked up a few years ago. Then he started dating Selena. It created this whole jealously thing between them. Now Selena doesn't want Justin anywhere near Miley -- and they've been fighting about it!" a source said.
Liam Hemsworth has reportedly called off his engagement to Miley Cyrus. The 23-year-old actor and Miley, 20, are still living together at their Los Angeles home but are now sleeping in separate rooms after Liam told his fiancee their relationship was finished for good.
According to Us Weekly magazine, Miley confessed to a friend "we're done" when speaking about Liam. Speaking about their living arrangements, another source told the publication, "It's strange."
Liam and Miley first met on the set of their film The Last Song in 2009 and had been together four years, with The Hunger Games hunk popping the question last June. But their romance hit the rocks in February amidst rumors Miley had become jealous of Liam's close relationship with actress January Jones.
Liam had been urged by his brother, Thor star Chris Hemsworth, to dump Miley because they thought the relationship was unhealthy for him because she was so jealous. The Australian heartthrob eventually made the decision to end things after deciding he couldn't cope with the constant drama in his romance with the former Hannah Montana star.
Liam Hemsworth staved off advances from a bevvy of beautiful women at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend.
The hunk - whose engagement to Miley Cyrus appears to be back on - was at the event in Southern France promoting Hunger Games: Catching Fire and had to dodge a number of inventive attempts to get his attention.
A source told the New York Post newspaper that at an exclusive JW Marriott party women were "tossing ice cubes and other little items, including red lipstick, at him and his table to get his attention." Liam also "caused a riot upon entering the Belvedere party swarmed by eager girls." However, the star remained in control, with the source adding, "It was definitely a guys' night out as Liam held court with his agent and manager."
As well as partying and attending the premiere of Hunger Games: Catching Fire, alongside co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Clafin, Liam, 23, was seen at the premiere of Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian).
Miley Cyrus thinks it feels "right" to be engaged to Liam Hemsworth.
The "Party in the U.S.A." singer claims her relationship with the Hunger Games actor is progressing naturally, and the pair - who were rumored to be experiencing problems recently - have simply made a conscious decision not to be so open about their personal life to the media.
"We have a house together and dogs. It just seems right to be wearing this ring and to be committed. But we keep our relationship low-key and don't talk about it any more. We were too nice to the world and gave them too much insight - into my life and my puppies and my house - and I just don't feel they get that privilege any more. Like on my Twitter, I'm much more ... not conservative, but you don't see a picture of my dogs. You don't get that personal stuff any more."
Miley, 20, and Liam, 23 got engaged last summer after falling for each other on the set of rom-com The Last Song in 2010, but Liam has reportedly got "cold feet," and the wedding has been postponed, amid speculation he was fed up with Miley's constant partying.
