Miley Cyrus is going back to her roots. On Friday, the singer dropped the music video for her new single, «Younger Now,» and it’s full of nostalgia. Not only does she sing along with a puppet version of her younger self (yes, really), but she also impersonates one of her idols, Elvis Presley, who passed away 40 years ago this month. Aside from jamming out on the guitar and kissing an older woman, she also seems to poke fun at her Hannah Montana days by doing a hoedown-inspired dance in a 1950s sock-hop setting. Needless to say, we can’t wait to see what the rest of her album will sound like!
There’s a lot to like about Miley Cyrus‘ video for “Younger Now.” I made a list:
– There’s a puppet.
– She hangs out with what looks like an elderly, gender-fluid biker gang.
– She’s not naked on a wrecking ball.
– No one’s twerking.
– Her backup dancers are all of a certain age.
– The fact that no one’s twerking should be mentioned again.
– The Gravitron!
The theme is sort of old-timey tv shows like Howdy Doody and The Lawrence Welk Show, etc. Miley spends a lot of the video looking like Morrissey, dressed up like he played the banjo in Patsy Cline‘s band.
The best part is the Graviton, though. Remember that ride? For those who’ve never ridden it, it’s a big, round spinny thing you go in, they lock it shut, and everyone leans against a padded wall panel. It then spins really, really fast. So fast that the section of the wall you’re on (which is on a track) rises and you’re kinda pinned near the ceiling. Everyone screams and feels flattened. It spins so fast that when someone inevitably vomits, the vomit will literally FLY through the air and hit your fellow passengers in the face. I didn’t do it, nor was I hit, so it was a pretty rad thing to watch. The Graviton ruled!
We can’t get enough of Miley Cyrus‘s love story with her fiancé Liam Hemsworth, but he’s certainly not the only person who has stolen her heart over the years. Remember her tween romance with fellow Disney Channel star Nick Jonas? What about her fleeting relationship with Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s son? Bet you didn’t know she dated a Sprouse twin, either. See all the people Miley romanced before (and after) falling for her husband-to-be.
Last night at the Teen Choice Awards, Miley Cyrus was expected to take the stage to accept the Ultimate Choice Award which is reserved only for those most worthy of teen choosees. However, Miley pulled a last minute no-show to the shock and disappointment of thousands of teen choosers.
According to People:
Miley Cyrus was set to accept the Teen Choice Awards‘ highest honor on Sunday, so her eleventh hour cancellation was both disappointing and shocking to fans.
Presenter Victoria Justice took to the stage early in the show to announce “last minute Miley Cyrus couldn’t make it here tonight,” drawing gasps and boos from the crowd.
“I know, I know,” Justice said. “It’s a bummer.”
Miley blamed an “unrealistic schedule” for her inability to attend the ceremony. Instead she posted an apology to fans via Instagram and used the opportunity to promote her latest single Younger Now.
To my dearest fans & all of those watching @teenchoicefox ! I want to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for presenting me with #TheUltimateChoiceAward ! I am beyond bummed I couldn't make it to the show as I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honor! I created an unrealistic schedule for myself which leads me to this announcement! I've been tryin to keep the secret but I can't hide it any longer! My new single / music video #YoungerNow will be dropping this Friday , Aug 18th & I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you! I hope to always make people smile and shine light thru my work! I look forward to making music for the rest of my life and I'm thankful everyday for those who listen! I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE! ❤️❤️
As we know, Miley Cyrus has done a 180 on her image, trying to erase her walk on the wild side and make us forget about that fucking tongue (#neverforget). To that end, it looks like her chosen path is through a process of rapid regression that would make Benjamin Buttons’ head spin. Miley’s message says of her new single (Via People):
“I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you!” she said. “I hope to always make people smile and shine light thru my work! I look forward to making music for the rest of my life and I’m thankful everyday for those who listen!”
Miley, likely alluding to the horror show that happened in Charlottesville over the weekend, also farted out the mildest of meaningless milquetoast messages. Via People:
“I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE!”
You know who did manage to show up at the Teen Choice Awards? It’s your boi, newly single and ready to mingle Chris Pratt! People reports:
Pratt wore a casual outfit of jeans and leather jacket and was noticeably not wearing his wedding ring when he accepted his award. The actor joked about the lies he had to tell when he first moved to Hollywood before giving thanks to his “Lord and savior Jesus Christ” for getting him where he is today.
Classic Chris Pratt, proving once again that Jesus shoutouts aren’t reserved exclusively for the BET Awards. Chris was at the awards presenting with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 costar Zoë Saldana and walked away the surfboard for Choice Action Movie Actor and Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor. I look forward to next years ceremony where Miley will have regressed to a fetal stage and Chris Pratt is newly divorced from his third wife, in accordance with Jesus’ plan.
When it comes to hot Aussies, Liam Hemsworth is one of the sexiest around — especially when he’s shirtless. Not only has the actor bared his chest for movies such as The Last Song, but he’s also given us a sneak peek at his glorious abs during his casual surf outings, and for that we’re eternally grateful. Let’s just say we all wish we were Miley Cyrus. Take a moment to appreciate all the times this hunk has shown off his incredible physique.
A little over a year ago, I wrote about how Miley Cyrus was reportedly hanging up her g-strings and nipple covers and living that modest wifey life for Liam Hemsworth. And maybe I was naive, but I refused to believe it. The proudly slutty Miley I knew would never! Then Miley appeared on the cover of Billboard looking like she was fixin’ to go to a demure hoedown thrown by her flower arranging club. Then she let it be known she shudders to think of herself naked and swinging from a wrecking ball. Well, Miley recently explained her new look, and she’s definitely really over her chipmunk-on-spring-break phase.
Miley tells Harper’s Bazaar that she’s in the middle of a “transition” away from the unicorn horns, day-glo wigs, and holographic fetish wear. Miley just couldn’t keep stepping out with her intimate bits covered in six ounces of fabric held together with a few stitches of thread, glitter glue, and a prayer, because – if you can even believe it – Miley was starting to feel “sexualized.”
Her previous over-the-top persona, she decided, had served its purpose. “It became something that was expected of me. I didn’t want to show up to photo shoots and be the girl who would get my tits out and stick out my tongue. In the beginning, it was kind of like saying, ‘Fuck you. Girls should be able to have this freedom or whatever.’ But it got to a point where I did feel sexualized.”
But she is also putting her tits away because, according to Miley, it’s way more shocking and edgy to be covered up like a dainty lil’ lady.
“Even at the Met Gala, everyone had their boobs out, everyone had their ass out, so what’s punk about that now? It’s more punk actually for me to not.”
Although she would like you to know that just because she used to put her tits out there as much as humanly possible, it doesn’t mean she considers herself any less of a role model. She’s still the same ol’ Miley young critters can look up to.
Speaking of, Miley also talked about quitting weed by quoting Canadian philosopher Justin Bieber. She may not be puff, puff, passing at the moment, but…
“Just for now. To quote the wise Justin Bieber, ‘Never say never. But right now I want to be clear.”
Back to Miley’s thoughts on being sexualized. I kind of always through that’s what she was going for? Like, goodbye Hannah Montana, hello Billy Ray’s hyper-sexualized daughter. I’m curious to know what the turning point was. Her lightbulb moment could have come one day as she was sitting on the porch in a pair of crotchless Dolfin shorts squirting Mountain Dew into her mouth from a penis-shaped water gun. Or maybe it was seeing an old pic from her Bangerz tour of her humping the hood of a car with her ass out. Both of those have the potential to make one pause and think: “Hmm…perhaps this is a tad sexual.”
Miley Cyrus has an incredible figure and she loves flaunting it in a bikini. Whether she’s walking along the shore with her fiancé Liam Hemsworth or she’s enjoying a relaxing vacation with her family, the «Malibu» singer certainly isn’t shy about slipping into skimpy two-piece. What can we say? Her rocking body just can’t be tamed. See some of her best bikini moments below.
Is it just us or do Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth get cuter every day? On Thursday, the «Malibu» singer celebrated National Kissing Day by posting an adorable throwback of the two filming their 2010 movie, The Last Song. «Happy #InternationalKissingDay! 💋💋💋» she wrote alongside a photo of them making out in the ocean. «Our first smooch 8 years ago! ❤️❤️❤️» Aww! It’s pretty fitting that they met on the set of a Nicholas Sparks adaptation since playing love interests «sparked» their real-life romance. Even though they took a brief break when they called off their engagement in 2013, they seem more in love than ever after getting back together.
Summer officially kicked off this week, and Miley Cyrus celebrated in the best way possible — in a bikini, of course. On Wednesday, the 24-year-old singer posted a sizzling Instagram photo of herself wearing a red Triangl swimsuit with her dogs, Emu and Dora. «Summmmmer is heeeeerrrre! Bring on Z fruit, sunshine (always spf), & goooood times!» she captioned it. Between this snap and her music video for «Malibu,» Miley has definitely earned herself a spot on our list of this year’s hottest bikini moments.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have done a really good job of pissing people off with their homophobic thoughts, IVF, etc… They recently pissed off Miley Cyrus and got into a fight with her. And it all started with her brother Braison Cyrus.
People says that on Saturday, 23-year-old Braison Cyrus made his debut as a runway model by walking Dolce & Gabbana’s 2018 Spring/Summer show in Milan. Miley celebrated her little brother’s achievement by Instagramming a picture of Braison and congratulating him on his success, which was followed by her telling D&G that she hates their politics but loves how they support young artists.
Congrats @braisonccyrus on walking in your 1st runway show…. It's never been my little brothers dream to be a model as HE is one of the most talented musicians my ears have ever been given the gift of hearing…. BUT it is a Cyrus family trait to try everything once (within reason HA) and to embrace opportunities that encourage you to step out of your comfort zone! We believe in trying something new everyday! I love you Prince Suga Bear and seriously congratulations on your experience! I am so proud of you always…. From Nashville to Italy! ❤️❤️❤️ PS D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics…. but I do support your company's effort to celebrate young artists & give them the platform to shine their light for all to see!
D&G weren’t having any of it, and Stefano Gabbana slapped back at Braison’s sister in both Italian and English.
#Repost @mileycyrus Noi siamo italiani e della politica non ci interessiamo di quella Americana ancora meno !!! Noi facciamo abiti e se tu pensi di fare politica con un post sei semplicemente un'ignorante. Non abbiamo bisogno dei tuoi post e dei tuoi commenti. La prossima volta ignoraci x favore!! #boycottdolcegabbana ❤️ We are Italian and we don't care about politics and mostly neither about the American one! We make dresses and if you think about doing politics with a post it's simply ignorant. We don't need your posts or comments so next time please ignore us!! #boycottdolcegabbana ❤️
D&G really love telling people to boycott them. They recently clapped back at the “haters” by selling a $ 245 t-shirt that says #BOYCOTT DOLCE & GABBANA.
Miley wasn’t the only one who hated on D&G. GQ says that one of Braison’s fellow models, Atlanta musician Raury, protested D&G by removing his bomber jacket at the end of the show. Written on his chest were words like “protest” and “give me freedom.” Raury was pissed about D&G trying to profit off the word “boycott” with their t-shirts. GQ says he was quickly removed from the show.
One of the last times Dolce & Gabbana let the hate flow, Elton John told them to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up. Elton is also a fan of Miley’s, so I would really love to hear what he has to say about this. If anyone can knock D&G down a peg, it’s Papa Elton. But first, I’d like to think he’d want to have a kiki with Miley about that comment to her brother. “Prince Suga Bear? And with the R-drop and everything? Darling, your family is indeed just too charming for words.”
