Miley Cyrus Says Music Is Her Boyfriend

9 Aug

Miley Cyrus doesn’t mind being single these days … because music is her sweetheart.

“I need to treat my music like a relationship – give it my time and all the attention it deserves – that’s my main love right now,” the singer, 20, tells December’s Cosmopolitan, on sale Nov. 5.

“This is the best time of my life. I’m not going to look back on it and be like, ‘I wish I hadn’t been dwelling over a breakup,’ you know?” she says of her split with Liam Hemsworth.

And Cyrus is finding support from fellow musicians Kanye West and Katy Perry, whom she says can understand her experience when very few can.

“The support of other artists is important because there are not many people who can relate to what I’m going through right now. Kanye West is one of those people, and even Katy Perry has been so cool,” she says.

“It’s easy for Kanye to support me because we’re totally separate lanes of competition, but for Katy to say that she appreciates what I’m really doing for the pop industry, that keeps you going. And I mean, who cares what the media buzz is if Kanye West is telling you that you’re the s—?

“Even people who want to hate on me, they can’t even shut down the fact that I’m literally what everyone is talking about,” Cyrus says.

    Fall TV is serious business in the Rancic household. “Bill and I fight over the remote,” Giuliana Rancic tells Us Weekly of her small screen habits at home with her husband of six years. “He likes to watch football, scripted shows and documentaries, whereas I like reality competitions and anything without a script!”

    Currently filming their reality show, Giuliana & Bill, the couple will have the chance to relive their favorite past show moments when season 6 begins airing in full on the E! Network starting Tues., Oct. 15 at 10 p.m. (EST).

    PHOTOS: Remember this hilarious Giuliana & Bill scene?

    Among some of the highlights? Giuliana gets down n’ dirty with a male stripper during a pal’s baby shower and writes and sings a song for Bill as a Father’s Day present. “That was my absolute favorite moment,” Giuliana tells Us, “he was laughing so hard he was crying! Even Duke looked stunned [by my singing!]”

    What else is on Giuliana Rancic’s DVR? She flips channels with Us:

    The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Sundays, Bravo): “You never know what’s going to come out of their mouths!”

    Giuliana & Bill (Tuesdays, E!): “I used to watch because Bill and I were on it, of course, but now I watch to see baby Duke! I am so excited the show is coming to E!”

    The Voice (Mondays and Tuesdays, NBC): “I love hearing the heartfelt stories of these struggling artists and then watching them come out on stage hoping for a chair to turn to make their dreams come true.”

    Fashion Police (Fridays, E!): “It’s even funnier to watch it on TV than it is to tape it each week! I just sit in bed and laugh listening to Joan [Rivers]!”

    America Now (check local listings): “This news magazine show is hosted by my husband and Leeza Gibbons. I love watching how great Bill is on-camera — I like to jokingly tell him I taught him everything he knows!”

    Oklahoma Sooners WR Trey Metoyer — Alleged Serial Masturbater

    Breaking News

    1016-trey

    Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver Trey Metoyer has a problem — he can’t stop masturbating in public … this according to police docs obtained by TMZ.

    The sophomore — who was a 5-star recruit out of high school — was charged with 2 counts of felony indecent exposure after allegedly throwing a J in public on 2 separate occasions.

    Here’s the breakdown, according to cops:

    8/29/13 — Someone called police in Norman, OK to report a man wearing a blue shirt and blue pants pleasuring himself inside of a red Pontiac Grand Am.

    9/17/13 — A woman called police saying Metoyer approached her while she was walking her dog and asked to borrow a pen. She went inside her apt. to grab it and when she returned outside, Trey was outside of her front door”masturbating in front of her apartment.”

    The woman said Trey then asked her “if she would want the pen back.”

    We’re guessing she declined his offer.

    Cops say Metoyer initially denied the allegations — but later acknowledged them and said ” the incidents were a mistake and he was not thinking clearly at the time.”

    Metoyer has since left the football team — so he’ll have a lot of time on his hands. Hope he’ll keep them in his pockets …

    Mickey Rooney’s Stepson SETTLES Elder Abuse Suit for MILLIONS

    Mickey Rooney‘s stepson now concedes he owes the famed actor $2.8 million for allegedly siphoning off a ton of money from Mickey’s financial accounts, but there’s a GIGANTIC catch.

    Christopher Aber and his wife, Christina, have just settled with Mickey’s conservators, after allegations they played funny with Mickey’s money.  There were also allegations the couple deprived Mickey of food, meds, and even blocked him from leaving his home.

    The whole thing escalated when the 93-year-old actor testified before Congress on elder abuse.

    So now Christopher and Christina — who have declared bankruptcy — have folded.  So how, you ask, can Mickey get $2.8 mil?  Well under the settlement, Christopher and Christina have a homeowner’s insurance policy that arguably covers this type of wrongdoing.  So Mickey’s lawyers think they can use the settlement to go after the insurance company and get their dough.

    Here’s the rub.  The insurance company has already made it clear … it’s not paying anything because the alleged abuses were intentional, and that’s not covered under the policy.

    So Mickey’s lawyers are now going to sue the insurance company and demand not only the $2.8 mil but also punitive damages for bad faith denial of coverage.

    Kaley Cuoco, Briana Cuoco Are “Best Friends,” “Could Not Have Been Nicer” on The Voice Set

    Kaley and Briana Cuoco are one classy sister act. The Big Bang Theory actress, 27, and her younger sibling and personal assistant — a contestant on the new season of The Voice — are the talk of the town in Hollywood these days, and it’s not hard to see why.

    PHOTOS: Vote for the hotter star sibling!

    “Briana is super cool and really down to earth,” a source tells Us Weekly of the aspiring singer and actress. “She never demanded any special treatment or anything like that on set.”

    Her sister, who ecstatically cheered on Briana from backstage, sounds similarly awesome. “Kaley and Briana could not have been nicer,” the source says. “They are incredibly close and supportive of one another. You can tell they are best friends.”

    PHOTOS: Before they were on The Voice

    Indeed, Kaley gushed on Monday’s episode of The Voice that she’s Briana’s biggest fan. “I’ve been waiting for something like this for so long for her,” the CBS star said. “She’s deserved this her whole life and she’s always put herself on the back burner for everyone else…There’s no one I love more in the world. My sister and I are closer than close. I want this for her probably more than she maybe wants it.”

    PHOTOS: Famous siblings

    Briana, for her part, is equally effusive about Kaley — though she admits there are some challenges in having a famous sister. In a conference call with reporters, she said people assume she has “an in” just because Kaley is “successful in one field in the business.” But that’s not necessarily the case. “People open doors all the time for people…but you have to be the one to close them, no matter what,” she explained.

    “I am incredibly lucky to have [Kaley] and to have her support and to have been around the business for a long time. So I have that on my side, absolutely,” she continued. “But on the other side, I do have…more pressure on me. I think people expect a little bit more because of that, which is a great thing because it keeps me driven. But it also can be a little harder sometimes when people are a little extra critical in certain cases.”

    Fortunately, Briana’s experience on The Voice thus far has been pretty positive. “It was such a beautiful thing having [Kaley] there with me and truly mentoring me,” she gushed, noting that her whole family had been really encouraging. “My parents have been incredibly supportive of my sister and my career, and to have all of them there and her supporting me — it was amazing. It was truly one of the best moments of my life.”

    The Voice airs on NBC on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET, and on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt to reprise his role in the next Batman flick? Not so fast! While promoting his latest film Don Jon on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the 32-year-old actor admitted he probably won’t be Ben Affleck’s wingman in the next series.

    PHOTOS: Stars as superheros

    “I don’t know. I don’t think so,” he said to Leno on Tuesday, Oct. 1. “I don’t have anything to do with that movie. I was in a movie that was the end of a trilogy that I was super proud and fortunate to be in.”

    PHOTOS: Best and worst movie remakes

    Gordon-Levitt starred alongside Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises in 2012 and (spoiler alert!) it was revealed in the last few minutes of the Christopher Nolan film that his character’s real name was Robin, the caped crusader’s famed right-hand-man. As Bale’s Batman later walked away from the infamous cape, Gordon-Levitt’s character is then given the tools to begin training in order to take over as Gotham City’s hero.

    PHOTOS: Shirtless hunks!

    Though the Looper star doesn’t think he will be reprising his role, he thinks Affleck, 41, is “going to be great” as the DC Comics character. In late August, Warner Bros. revealed that Affleck was cast to play Batman opposite Henry Cavill’s Superman in the Man of Steel sequel. A source told Us Weekly at the time that the father of three had begun working out two hours a day in order to transform his physique for the iconic role.

    Big Brother Season 15 has crowned its winner. After spending 90 days in a house together on the CBS reality show, GinaMarie Zimmerman, Spencer Clawson and Andy Herren made it down to the final three contestants.

    After competing in a three-part Head of Household competition, Zimmerman won the first round and Herren won the second and third. As the winner, Herren chose Zimmerman to join him as the final two contestants.

    They were then questioned by a jury of eliminated houseguests, and had to fight for votes. “I know that I stabbed everyone in the back,” Herren said. “I appreciate a good game . . . I’m sorry I had to backstab all of you because I love all of you and I’m not a terrible person, I promise!”

    In a 7-2 vote, Herren took home the $500,000 prize, while Zimmerman walked away with $50,000.

    PHOTOS: Biggest reality show catfights

    Season 15 was easily the most controversial in Big Brother history. During the contestants’ stay in the home, homophobic and racist remarks were made by some during the show’s 24/7 Internet live-feed. Zimmerman, for one, lost her job with East Coast USA Pageant, INC where she worked as a pageant coordinator for five years. She was caught on camera commenting that Candice Stewart, an African-American housemate, was on the dark side “because she’s already dark.”

    Herren, an openly gay contestant, meanwhile, was on the receiving end of some of homophobic remarks. Housemate Aaryn Gries was filmed saying “no one’s going to vote for whoever that queer puts up.”

    Miley Cyrus Defends Her VMAs Performance to Britney Spears in The Movement Trailer

  • Miley: The Movement

    To be a fly on that wall! Both former Disney starlets-turned-pop-provocateurs, Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus have more than a few things in common — they recently collaborated on not-yet-leaked track “SMS (BANGERZ)” — and the pair are briefly seen shooting the breeze in a preview for MTV documentary Miley: The Movement.

    PHOTOS: Miley’s raciest outfits

    Their topic of conversation? The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, of course! “Everyone takes the VMAs so serious,” Cyrus, 20, tells VMAs vet Spears, 31, in a recording studio. “I just wanna come out and shoot a hot dog gun,” the former Hannah Montana star says as Spears giggles. “I just wanna have fun!” (Spears recently defended Cyrus’ VMAs stunt.)

    PHOTOS: Brit’s bikini body

    Premiering on MTV on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 10 p.m., Miley: The Movement followed Cyrus during the four-month leadup to the release of new album Bangerz — including rehearsals, encounters with fans, and lots of one-on-one interviews.

    “I was born to become who I am right now,” Cyrus says. “Right now I’m in a point in my career where I’m exactly what I wanna be, who I wanna be . . .I’m starting as a new artist now.”

    Her (compelling!) take on stirring on controversy? “You’re always gonna make people talk. You might as well make them talk for like, two weeks, rather than two seconds.”

    After an exhausting game of musical chairs, it looks like Harry Connick Jr. might be the third and final American Idol judge for Season 13, a source confirms to Us Weekly. (The Hollywood Reporter was first to report the story.) The singer and actor may be joining Jennifer Lopez, 44, and Keith Urban, 45, who have already solidified their spots on the panel. Former judge Randy Jackson, 57, will replace Jimmy Iovine as mentor, the source adds. Lopez is back after serving as a judge in 2011 and 2012 and Urban is returning for a second consecutive year. His Season 12 team — Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj — both announced in May they would be exiting the show after just one year.

    PHOTOS: American Idol makeovers

    Connick Jr., 45, — who has won three Grammy awards and sold over 25 million albums worldwide — hinted he could be joining the reality show when he retweeted a comment from Ellen DeGeneres on Aug. 29, although the deal is not done yet. “@HarryConnickJr. might be a judge on American Idol! He loves to follow in my footsteps. It’s like having a boring little brother,” the TV host wrote. Connick also revealed in May what he would bring to the table if offered the opportunity. “I think you need to be completely honest and I think you need to be diplomatic,” he said. “I think there’s no reason to be mean, but it’s called being a judge.”

    The New Orleans native isn’t new to the FOX series. The Hope Floats star has appeared on the singing competition several times before as both a mentor and performer.

    The news comes just two weeks after Us revealed that record producer Dr. Luke was close to signing a deal. The plan eventually fell through when he ran into trouble with Sony Music, which he signed a contract with in 2011. (Sony is in direct competition with Universal, the company that has a contract with American Idol to sign the winners.) Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am was also speculated to fill the remaining seat as well as talent manager Scooter Braun. “Jennifer [Lopez] loves Scooter and feels he’d be an excellent choice,” a source previously told Us.

     

    Miley Cyrus Breaks Silence on VMAs: I Made “History” With Robin Thicke

    Sounds like Miley Cyrus knows what she’s doing! Despite a false interview that made the rounds over the holiday weekend, the 20-year-old singer/actress has stayed mum on her feverishly debated MTV Video Music Awards performance of over one week ago — until now. The “We Won’t Stop” singer actually sat down with MTV three days after her polarizing Aug. 25 moment at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center alongside Robin Thicke.

    PHOTOS: Miley’s raciest outfits

    MTV.com released a video tease of the chat (part of an upcoming documentary), a poised Cyrus breaks her silence on the twerks seen round the world. “I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times,” she says of her many, many detractors, “How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?”

    PHOTOS: Craziest moments from 2013 VMAs

    She adds of previous provocative VMAs moments: “Madonna‘s done it. Britney‘s done it. Every VMA performance, that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history.” (A then lesser-known Madonna first had jaws dropping back at the 1984 VMAs, writhing on the floor in a wedding dress to the strains of “Like a Virgin”; her future make-out partner Britney Spears revealed her naughty side — and a flesh-colored bodysuit — performance “Oops I Did It Again” and “Satisfaction” at the 2000 show.)

    PHOTOS: Wildest VMA moments of all time

    And “history” was definitely on Cyrus and Thicke’s mind before they hit the stage, she says. “Me and Robin the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now.'”

    “What’s amazing is I think now, we’re three days later and people are still talking about it. They’re overthinking it,” she exclaims.

    “You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn’t even think about it ’cause that’s just me!”
