If Rihanna and Drake are the Ross and Rachel of our generation, then our generation’s Ross and Rachel of friendship are Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus. Are they friends still? We so badly want them to be friends.
Unfortunately, according to Lovato, things aren’t all that friendly between the two.
During a radio interview with 103.3 AMP Radio’s “The TJ Show,” a fan called in and asked Lovato about the status of her friendship with Cyrus. “Um… yeah… that, um…we’re, we’re like, we’re acquaintances,” Lovato said.
The DJ asked if there was a specific drama that caused the rift. The fan clarified that, no, she wasn’t wondering about anything specific, only that she had noticed Lovato and Cyrus hadn’t seemed as close as they once were following Cyrus’ “wild phase.” Then Lovato chimed in: “It’s life, and people change, and, you know, I don’t have anything in common with her anymore. I wish her all the best.”
Lovato and Cyrus are long rumored to have suffered some kind of rupture in their friendship. Earlier this year, the two unfollowed each other on Twitter, which, in 2014, is the equivalent of drunkenly yelling “I never want to talk to you again, you backstabber!” while stumbling out of a bar at 3:30 a.m.
You can listen to the entire interview here. The Cyrus question comes up at the 4:25 mark.
Happy birthday, Miley Cyrus! The pop megastar celebrates her 22nd birthday on Sunday.
The talented artist formerly known as Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana has raised eyebrows and shocked the world with her racy outfits, outrageous statements, and controversial performances.
In celebration of her birthday, check out 22 of Miley’s most talked-about moments…
Wild child Miley Cyrus celebrated her 22nd birthday in true Miley style.
The pop star celebrated with new boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger, 21, and several friends at a West Hollywood nightclub, where she was presented with an enormous pizza cake and rode a mechanical ride in the form of a penis.
Miley, who had used giant inflatable phalluses on stage during her Bangerz tour concerts, arrived at her party in a colorful outfit, consisting of a bright pink top that connected with a ring to her fluorescent green mini skirt, covered with a pink and yellow fur jacket. She sported blue eye shadow, blue and yellow hearts painted on her face and pink and blue butterfly clips in her short hair.
She was photographed near the Factory Club with Patrick (dressed in an olive green flight suit), her brother Braison Cyrus, 20 (dressed in plaid), and friends. Singer and actress Sky Ferreria also attended the party, E! News has learned.
Cyrus posted a photo on Instagram of her pizza cake.
“It’s my buuuurffffdayyyy,” she said.
Her friend Katy Weaver, who also attended the party, shared another pic.
“Everyone had a great time,” a source told E! News. “It was a fun and relaxed and it was quite a spectacle. Nothing less than what you would expect from a party with Miley.”
Patrick is the eldest son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, who share four children. E! News learned about his and Miley’s relationship in early November. Several sources said they were “casually dating.”
Since then, Patrick and Miley have been spotted out together several times this month, including at a USC football game, where they packed on the PDA, and during several dates.
This is the most high-profile relationship for Miley since she and actor Liam Hemsworth, her co-star in the 2010 movie The Last Song, ended their engagement and broke up in September 2013.
“I have seen Miley with Liam and other boyfriends but honestly I have never seen her look as loved up as this,” an insider told E! News last week. “This is more than just a fling, they look like they are falling in love with one another.”
The 21-year-old is hoping the party will not only help others but showher critics that she has a “caring and sensitive” side to her personality.
The soiree will include a three course dinner with waiters on hand to make sure Miley’s guests don’t lift a finger.
“Most people only see the Miley who puts on a show,” an insider told the Star.
“But she’s really caring and sensitive and wants to make a difference to the lives of homeless people. She’s putting a lot of effort into this party, there’ll be waitresses to serve them.
“The whole thing will cost her around £6,000 but she feels that it’s the least she can do.”
Miley has worked closely with a homeless shelter in LA for the past couple of years and the cause means a lot to her. In August she invited Jesse Helt, a man she met at the shelter, as her date to the MTV music awards.
Jesse reduced the Wrecking Ball singer to tears when he went up on stage and collected her award.
“There will be fun and games after the food too, and Miley is bound to put on a little show for them to get the party started,” the source added.
Miley Cyrus has recorded a cover of Melanie Safka’s “Look What They’ve Done to My Song, Ma” for the Sundance Selects satire “Free the Nipple,” Variety has learned.
Lina Esco, 29, is making her directorial debut on the feature about female activists who challenge censorship laws by going topless in public. Esco, who is also an actress, met Cyrus on 2012’s “LOL,” and showed her an early cut of “Free the Nipple” over the summer. That’s when Cyrus agreed to put her own spin on the tune for the film’s closing credits.
Cyrus recorded the song last August in two takes. She’s performed “Look What They’ve Done to My Song, Ma” before, but this version—produced by Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes—sounds different. “It’s more rock ‘n’ roll,” Esco says. “It’s very Johnny Cash. Her voice is so raw, and the song is so raw.”
Esco started a feminist movement when she coined the phrase “Free the Nipple” in 2013, which has since been championed by Lena Dunham, Liv Tyler and Rihanna. The campaign, which has attracted 122,000 Twitter followers, opposes laws in 37 states that make it illegal for women to show their breasts in public.
“This is about equality,” Esco says. “You can show beheadings on Facebook, but you can’t show breastfeeding. If you’re going to censor nudity and love, you should censor violence.”
She came up with the idea for the movie, and when she started sharing the phrase, it went viral online (this tweet from Cyrus helped).
The film, which cost just under $1 million, was shot in six weeks in New York, but Esco ran into problems when police wouldn’t allow her actresses to appear topless in the streets.
“I’m making a movie called ‘Free the Nipple,’ and I can’t show boobs,” Esco says. “I had to go and steal the shots. We went and mapped out all the locations, rehearsed with clothes on and did it all in one take.”
“Free the Nipple” opens in theaters and on VOD on Dec. 12.
Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger have been pretty much inseparable lately!
The good-looking couple stopped by the MAC Cosmetics and MAC AIDS Fund premiere of the HIV/AIDS documentary It’s Not Over in West Hollywood last night but made sure to stay under the radar.
Shortly after slipping into the event, the “We Can’t Stop” singer and model grabbed a bite at nearby eatery, RivaBella.
Cyrus and her new beau arrived through the back door and shared a truffle pizza and pasta dish during their romantic late-night dinner.
An eyewitness tells E! News that the two “were very smiley and cute with one another” and that they seemed really “into each other.”
The two have certainly been heating things up since taking their longtime friendship to the next level in the recent weeks.
“I have seen Miley with Liam and other boyfriends, but honestly I have never seen her look as loved-up as this,” a source gushed to us. “This is more than just a fling, they look like they are falling in love with one another.”
Schwarzenegger is the first major relationship for the former Disney star since ending her engagement to Liam Hemsworth. And no, we’re not counting her brief fling with Kellan Lutz.
Cyrus and Hemsworth announced their split on September 16, 2013 after almost four years together.
But while many are left scratching their heads wondering what Cyrus and her new man have in common, the answer is actually quite simple.
“They might seem like an odd pairing, but they are quite good for each other,” a source recently told E! News. “They’ve been friends forever.”
SHE’S one of the most controversial superstars of our time, so one would expect touring with Miley Cyrus to be a pretty wild ride.
But Aussie duo The Faders, who were the DJ pair lucky enough to land the support slot for Cyrus’s Bangerz tour Down Under, say the singer is actually incredibly down to earth and chilled out when on the road.
“What she’s not getting credit for is that she’s a true performer, people are getting caught up in the drama,” the ladies, Milly Gattegno and Suhana Lye, tell news.com.au.
“Everyone is just hanging out and being happy to be themselves when they’re not on stage,” Lye said, adding: “Miley is just herself, she’s just doing what she does.”
So she’s not partying, twerking, tweeting like mad and running amok backstage then?
“Not much to be honest, she’s just committed to putting on the show and putting on an amazing production and staying true to who she is. Her voice is so amazing and everyone backstage is such a family,” Gattegno said.
The Faders, who recently launched their sophomore album, F.U.N.2, said the first time they met the Wrecking Ball singer they were trying to play it cool, despite being totally in awe of their idol. But Cyrus exceeded their expectations, even inviting the girls to an intimate afterparty in her dressing room with another 20 people where she DJed off an iPod.
For anyone expecting something a little more juicy, the pair promised this was as wild as it got.
The Faders are currently on their own F.U.N.2 tour, which kicked off last month. They also teamed up with Rdio to create a playlist of their favourite summer beats.
Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger just can’t seem to stay away from each other!
First it was the University of Southern California football game Thursday night. Then it was a casual dinner date Friday. Now, E! News can confirm the twosome enjoyed another night out at Mr. Nice Guy in West Hollywood Saturday evening.
“They had just been for dinner and came to Nice Guy to meet some friends for drinks,” an eyewitness told E! News. “They seem so happy together!”
The “We Can’t Stop” singer stayed close to her rumored new boyfriend as she held his hand outside the hotspot.
“She was beaming, she seemed so happy to be by his side,” the eyewitness added. “And he obviously feels the same, he couldn’t take his eyes off her.”
While the pair has yet to publicly declare their relationship status, those closest to the “We Can’t Stop” singer and college student can’t help but notice how happy the two are.
What started as a casual friendship appears to be turning into something so much more.
“I have seen Miley with Liam and other boyfriends but honestly I have never seen her look as loved up as this,” the insider added. “This is more than just a fling, they look like they are falling in love with one another.”
Schwarzenegger would mark the first significant relationship for Cyrus since splitting from Liam Hemsworth. And no, we’re not counting her brief fling with Kellan Lutz. The pair ended their engagement on September 16, 2013 after almost four years together.
Today, the 21-year-old “Party in the USA” singer appears to be smiling ear to ear (or at least giving a thumbs up) whenever she’s out and about.
“They might seem like an odd pairing, but they are quite good for each other,” a source recently told E! News in regards to Cyrus’ new relationship. “They’ve been friends forever.”
