Popstar Miley Cyrus clapped back at her social media haters on Thursday over her recent split with longtime partner Liam Hemsworth, an Australian actor, to deny allegations that she cheated on him.

“I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time. What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed. I have nothing to hide,” the 26-year-old superstar tweeted.

She then detailed a laundry list of her youthful exploits, including “I lost a massive Walmart deal at 17 for ripping a bong” and “I got kicked off hotel Transylvania for buying Liam a penis cake for his birthday and licking it.”

“I swung on a wrecking ball naked,” referring to the video for her 2013 hit that saw her image grow decidedly more provocative than her days as a teen idol thanks to the hit show “Hannah Montana.”

“But the truth is, once Liam & I reconciled, I meant it, & I was committed. There are NO secrets to uncover here,” she continued. “I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating. Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will.”

“BUT at this point, I had to make a healthy decision for myself to leave a previous life behind. I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in a long time. You can say I am a twerking, pot-smoking, foul-mouthed hillbilly but I am not a liar.”

The couple married in December in a private ceremony after a decade-long on-again, off-again relationship.

Hemsworth on August 12 released a statement to confirm the separation and “wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward.”

In an interview for Elle magazine’s July issue, Cyrus said she did not “fit into a stereotypical wife role” and that she was “very sexually attracted to women.” Cyrus reportedly declared as a young teen that she was “pansexual.”

Miley Cyrus And Liam Hemsworth To Separate – Reports

Popstar Miley Cyrus and her husband actor Liam Hemsworth have agreed to separate after less than a year of marriage, People magazine has reported.

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and their careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals,” a representative for Cyrus was quoted as telling People.

Cyrus’s management team did not immediately reply to AFP requests for confirmation.

People said that rumours of a split between the 26-year-old singer and her Australian husband, who is 29, began a day earlier when Cyrus — who has been ranked as one of the world’s most powerful celebrities — posted a photo of herself on Instagram not wearing a wedding ring.

The couple have had a long and at times stormy relationship.

They met in 2009 while filming the romantic drama “The Last Song.” In 2012 they were engaged but ended the engagement the following year.

In 2016, they got engaged again.

And in December 2018 they married in a private ceremony at their home in Nashville, Tennessee, only a month after losing their California home in a wildfire.

But in an interview for Elle magazine’s current issue, Cyrus said that she didn’t like the idea of being called “wife,” which she said was “confusing.”

She said she did not “fit into a stereotypical wife role” and that she was “very sexually attracted to women.” Cyrus reportedly declared as a young teen that she was “pansexual.”

The daughter of country star Billy Ray Cyrus and of actress/producer Tish Cyrus, Miley has had a huge profile in the entertainment world. She played in the Disney series “Hannah Montana,” repeatedly hosted “Saturday Night Live” and served as a coach on the television singing competition “The Voice.”

She was MTV’s Artist of the Year in 2013 and was selected the same year by Time magazine as a finalist for Person of the Year honours.

Hemsworth — whose brothers Chris and Luke are also actors — has starred in movies including “Isn’t It Romantic” and the “Hunger Games” series.

Miley Cyrus Debuts New Image

Miley Cyrus is steering away from marijuana, alcohol and rolling out a new sound that could help people take her more seriously after she was dubbed one of pop music’s bad girls.

The singer, whose father is country musician Billy Ray Cyrus and whose godmother is Dolly Parton, released the video for new single “Malibu” on Tuesday (May 11). The video for the breezy pop track shows Cyrus running with colourful balloons on the beach and laying in a field of flowers.

Speaking to Billboard Magazine in an interview published May 3, the former Disney star, 24, said she wanted to be “super clear and sharp” and focus on a new collection of songs that takes her back to her country music roots.

Billboard said it was a love song inspired by her fiance, actor Liam Hemsworth, with whom she reunited last year after a 2013 breakup.

Cyrus, who rose to fame on the Disney Channel show “Hannah Montana,” ditched her innocent image in 2013, admitting to drug use and appearing scantily clad in public and in music videos.

Her upcoming new album will feature more acoustic songs and melodies written by Cyrus and will include a song for Hillary Clinton, whom she supported in last year’s U.S. presidential election, and another anthem dedicated to women in the workplace, Billboard said.

Blurred Lines Verdict: Thicke And Williams Seek Appeal

Blurred linesPharrell Williams and Robin Thicke are to appeal the verdict which ruled that they copied a Marvin Gaye track.

Earlier this week, the U.S. District Court jury in Los Angeles sided with Gaye’s estate, finding that parts of his 1977 hit “Got to Give it Up” were lifted by Thicke and Williams for their 2013 R&B chart-topper.

Heirs of the late soul singer, Marvin Gaye, won a $7.4 million judgement on Tuesday against recording stars Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams, who a jury found plagiarized the Motown artist in the creation of their hit single “Blurred Lines.”

However, the musicians’ lawyer remained adamant Blurred Lines was original, as his clients insist it was created solely by them.

Howard King told Fox Business News, “We owe it to songwriters around the world to make sure this verdict doesn’t stand.

“My clients know that they wrote the song Blurred Lines from their hearts and souls and no other source.

“We are going to exercise every post-trial remedy we have to make sure this verdict does not stand.”

Mr King added that expert evidence in the case, which may have swayed the jury, should have been inadmissible.

He said, in particular, that the testimony from a musicologist that compared Blurred Lines with Got To Give It Up was based on elements of Gaye’s song that were not on the original sheet music.

The attorney for Gaye’s heirs, Richard Busch, had said that they would seek an injunction to halt further distribution of Blurred Lines.

Marvin Gaye’s Heirs Win $7.4 Million For ‘Blurred Lines’ Plagiarism

Blurred linesHeirs of the late soul singer, Marvin Gaye, won a $7.4 million judgement on Tuesday against recording stars Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams, who a jury found plagiarized the Motown artist in the creation of their hit single “Blurred Lines.”

The U.S. District Court jury in Los Angeles sided with Gaye’s estate, finding that parts of his 1977 hit “Got to Give it Up” were lifted by Thicke and Williams for their 2013 R&B chart-topper.

The jury awarded Gaye’s heirs $4 million in actual damages plus $3.4 million in profits that Thicke and Williams were found to have derived from their copyright infringement.

Several other parties sued by Gaye’s estate, the rapper T.I. and various music companies, were cleared of infringement.

Gaye’s daughter, Nona Gaye, hugged her attorney and wept as the court clerk read the verdict capping a week-long trial that explored the boundaries between artistic inspiration and theft.

“Right now I feel free, free from, honestly, from Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke’s chains and what they tried to keep on us, and the lies that they told,” she said.

Neither Thicke nor Williams was present for the verdict.

Their lawyer, Howard King, said they were keeping their options open. “It’s a lot of money. It’s not going to bankrupt my clients. It’s a disappointing number,” he said.

The attorney for Gaye’s heirs, Richard Busch, said they would seek an injunction to halt further distribution of “Blurred Lines.”

The suit cited magazine interviews given by Thicke in which he admitted drawing on “Got to Give it Up” when producing and recording “Blurred Lines.”

Thicke said later in sworn statements he was high on painkillers and alcohol when “Blurred Lines” became a hit and that he exaggerated his contribution to writing the song.

Thicke sang the raunchy, percussive dance tune, the biggest U.S. pop song of the summer of 2013, at that year’s MTV Video Music Awards in a provocative performance featuring pop singer, Miley Cyrus.

Williams acknowledged in court he had been a fan of Gaye’s music since childhood, but said “Blurred Lines” and “Got to Give it Up” were similar in genre only.

“The last thing you want to do as a creator is take something of someone else’s when you love him,” Williams testified. Gaye, whose hits included “I Heard it Through the Grapevine,” was fatally shot by his father in 1984 at age 44.

Beyonce, Jayz Douse Divorce Rumour At MTV Award

Beyonce,at Mtv Video Music AwardBeyonce closed the MTV Video Music Awards’ Sunday night with an epic nearly 20-minute performance, with tears streaming down her face as she was joined onstage by her beaming husband and daughter.  

Before she accepted the award, the 32-year-old pop diva shared a very public onstage kiss with her husband and the family hugged it out for a few seconds on stage. 

Beyonce sang and danced on Sunday in a metallic leotard while Blue Ivy and Jay Z watched from their seats as the diva declared: “MTV, welcome to my world.”

The pair had been dogged by speculation of a tumultuous relationship and rumours of divorce. Several tabloid reports suggest that the couple’s “On the Run” tour isn’t full of marital bliss and the pair have had a rocky go the last few months. But with a public lip-lock from the notoriously PDA-averse couple, things seem to be just fine between the two.

As Beyonce accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, the VMA’s version of a lifetime achievement award, at The Forum in Inglewood, California, she kissed her daughter and husband Jay Z, who called her the “greatest living entertainer”. The duo won best collaboration for the hit Drunk In Love.

I have nothing to say but I am filled with so much gratitude,” she told the cheering crowd as they chanted her name repeatedly.

Her performance easily outdid her competition throughout the night, though Beyonce lost video of the year, which instead went to Miley Cyrus, who let a homeless man accept her award. It was in sharp contrast to the 2013 VMAs, when Cyrus twerked and danced shockingly onstage.

‘Paranoia’ Movie Review

“Paranoia,” a new movie about a war between tech oligarchs and the corporate espionage they undertake to destroy each other, makes its debut in Los Angeles with stars Harrison Ford, Liam Hemsworth, Amber Heard, and Richard Dreyfuss.The movie was directed by Robert Luketic

Singer Miley Cyrus, engaged to Liam Hemsworth and Calista Flockhart married to Ford, also attended the screening at the theater at the Directors Guild of America Headquarters in West Hollywood.

“Paranoia” is capitalizing on the currency of the Snowden  issue, a movie that delves into issues that are all too current today, with government wiretapping and the Edward Snowden saga taking center stage, with Harrison Ford adding to the conversation lamenting that privacy doesn’t really exist anymore, in essence.

The movie depicts a young and ambitious wiz-kid who becomes a pawn in a fierce rivalry between tech billionaires. As the young superstar is seduced by unlimited wealth and power, he is hired by one to spy on the other’s company from the inside, he realizes his life is in danger too late, and that he is in far too deep and knows far too much for them to let him walk away.

Hemsworth, an Australian actor best known for his role as Gale Hawthorne in the “Hunger Games” films, said acting between heavyweights Ford and Oldman was a tall order.

The talk on the red carpet wasn’t all about “Paranoia,” with news breaking this week of Harrison Ford replacing Bruce Willis in the upcoming third installment of the “Expendables” film.

When asked why he was participating in the series, “the first two have earned a combined $575 million dollars  world-wide Ford” said.

“Paranoia” opens nationwide on August 16.
