Is Miley Cyrus trying to upstage her boyfriend now that Liam Hemsworth is in a huge movie with The Hunger Games? Why else would she be flashing what may or may not be an engagement ring?
Plenty of stars have a long history of manipulating paparazzi when it suits them, only to strong-arm the same photographers as soon as the celebs get cranky.
That said, I’m not sure I buy your theory about Miley Cyrus trying to one-up her box office-hogging bf Liam Hemsworth. Let’s run this one through my cynicism machine and see what survives:
First, you speak of two incidents.
The first was a Twitter photo Cyrus posted last week, ostensibly to show off a manicure. Noting that she was “soooo obsessed” with a certain nail foundation, Cyrus also happened to flash what looked like a huge diamond rock on That Very Special Finger.
Then came Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night XVVIII, in which the same ring emerged on the same finger, and on a red carpet to boot.
Despite breathless speculation that the 19-year-old Cyrus had promised herself to Hemsworth for future marital relations, the one-time Hannah Montana remained mum over the weekend. Only after the engagement rumors had reached a fever pitch—and the epic debut of The Hunger Games had run its course—did Cyrus bother to issue a denial today.
If it all sounds just a little too timely to be coincidence, you’re probably right, says Mark Pasetsky, onetime managing editor of OK! magazine and now the head of the publicity firm Mark Allen & Co.
“She knows exactly what she’s doing,” Pasetsky tells this B!tch. “Anybody who is this level of a star, who has been in this business for this long, knows how the game works. They know how to extend the moment.”
In other words, when Cyrus complained today that “people just wanna find something to talk about,” it’s likely a red herring; when you’re Miley Cyrus, you don’t flash a shot of your ring finger like that and expect nothing to happen.
But did jealousy really motivate this slick demonstration of PR flair? Might seem so—if you’re in junior high school.
“I suspect she’s doing whatever she can to help him out,” Pasetsky speculates. “I don’t think she’s trying to take anything away from him. This actually helps him. It’s perfect timing.”
Think about it: Hemsworth isn’t the main star of The Hunger Games. In fact, if you went to see the movie over the weekend, you know he was barely in it.
“Suddenly, we’re talking about him” even more, Pasetsky notes. “Mission accomplished.”
Mission accomplished indeed.
Elegant, summery, classic yet simple. This are a few of many words that capture the stunning dress Miley Cyrus wore recently.
During the Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night XIII earlier this week, Miley stood tall in a subtly peach coloured number which gracefully exposed her toned legs.
We love everything about this outfit because Miley’s colour harmony is out of this world! The peach colour against her glowing skin tone is 100% compatible. Miley accompanied the dress with a pair of peach coloured platform heels.
Miley kept all accessories and jewellery to a minimum, letting the stunning dress take all the attention.
What’s not to love!
Miley Cyrus said Monday she is not engaged to her Aussie beau Liam Hemsworth, after a photo of the singer sporting a ring on her left hand set tongues wagging.
“I’m not engaged,” she announced to her 5.3 million Twitter fans.
“I’ve worn this same ring on this finger since November! People just wanna find something to talk about! It’s a topaz people!”
The wedding rumor began late last week when Cyrus tweeted a picture of her left hand sporting what appeared to be a solitaire diamond engagement ring.
She sent the photo to show off a new manicure, in promotion of a brand of nail polish.
Hemsworth, 22, and Cyrus, 19, have been dating since meeting on the set of their 2009 film “The Last Song.”
Until recently, Hemsworth had been known mostly for his relationship with the former “Hannah Montana” starlet and as the younger brother of “Thor” actor Chris Hemsworth.
But the younger Hemsworth’s star is on the rise thanks to a leading role in the blockbuster film “The Hunger Games,” which had the third-biggest US opening ever this weekend, raking in an estimated $155 million.
The young star pulled an Angie when she worked the leggy look this weekend — but who do you think looked best?
On Oscar night everyone was talking about Angelina Jolie‘s leg in her seriously sexy Versace dress. While slits have been so popular, both on the runways and the red carpet, the star definitely stole the spotlight when she rocked the trend — but that clearly wasn’t the last time a star opted to show some leg on the red carpet!
Miley Cyrus was the latest celeb to try the leggy trend when she got glam for Muhammd Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night, where she wowed in a coral Jenny Packham high-lo gown. The halter gown looked gorgeous against her skin tone and I loved the pretty, feminine vibe of the dress. Miley is a huge fan of the designer, (as am I), and I thought this gown was perfect on the star. It was sexy chic without being too showy and was perfect for Spring.
While Miley’s hint of leg was effortlessly chic, Angie showed some leg in a dramatic, deliberate manner. Personally, I liked the way Miley worked her leggy look, but what do you think?
With The Hunger Games garnering rave reviews and grossing a historic $155 million in domestic box office, star Liam Hemsworth and girlfriend Miley Cyrus had plenty to celebrate this weekend. But did the on-and-off couple of three years cap it off with an engagement? Alas, no.
On Saturday, the former Hannah Montana star, 19, stepped out with her Australian beau, 22, at Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night XIII event in Phoenix, Ariz., wearing a huge new diamond ring on her finger. Despite a flurry of speculation over the weekend, a source close to Cyrus confirms to Us Weekly that the sparkler is not an engagement ring.
Regardless, Cyrus has been wearing and showing off the impressive ring for several days. The singer-actress displayed the dazzler in a Thursday tweet raving about a manicure. “I am soooo obsessed with @jennahipp nail foundations! It looks so chic and classic!” she wrote beneath the pic.
Cyrus and Hemsworth hit it off while filming the 2009 romance The Last Song; despite an August 2010 split, they reconciled less than a year later.
Just like you and your friends, Miley Cyrus, Darren Criss, Blake Shelton and many more were turned out in droves to see The Hunger Games this weekend to show their support for the Jennifer Lawrence-fronted flick, which made a killing (get it?) at the box office.
So what did they think of the movie? Spoiler alert: they all loved it!
Though she may be a bit biased, ya know, since she’s dating Liam Hemsworth, one of the movie’s leading men, Cyrus recommended the flick to her 5.2 million Twitter followers, saying, “Happy Hunger Games everyone! :) can’t wait for everyone to see it! Such an amazing film! JENNIFER LAWRENCE IS GENUIS!”
While he didn’t tweet his reaction, it looks like Bieber got in on some Hunger Games action, tweeting, “What other movies do u and your friends wait for in the middle of the night. #Hungergames.”
Miley Cyrus overcame a bout of ill health to perform at a birthday event for Muhammad Ali on Saturday night (24Mar12).
The former Hannah Montana star signed up for Celebrity Fight Night in Arizona, which also doubled as a 70th birthday celebration for the legendary boxer.
Her performance was left in doubt earlier this week (begs19Mar12) when she revealed she was battling sickness, but Cyrus fought off her illness to attend the bash with her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.
In a post on her Twitter.com page on Saturday, she wrote, “Stoked for CelebFightNight ) awesome to have (singer) JohnzoWest and Liam at my table here tonight”.
Lionel Richie, Rascal Flatts and Tom Hanks’ wife, actress-turned-singer Rita Wilson, also hit the stage at the bash, which was to raise funds for the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at the St Joseph’s hospital in Phoenix.
Ali, who turned 70 in January (12), was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1984.
Miley Cyrus fuelled rumours she is set to wed by sporting a sparkler at a star-studded US bash.
The singer, who is dating The Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth, sparked speculation earlier this month by sharing a picture of her wearing a ring with Twitter followers.
And she appeared to be wearing the same rock at last night’s party, thrown by boxing legend Muhammad Ali.
The celebrity couple met when they filmed The Last Song together back in 2009.
And Miley has revealed how they missed each other while Liam was filming his latest flick.
She explained: “I think the hardest part for Liam was being away from me and his brother and his family.”
As well as flashing her band as she arrived at the bash, Miley also took the opportunity to show off her toned legs in a pretty orange dress.
The 19-year-old singer later changed into a black frock to perform for the audience of celebs and sports stars.
Her heart-throb fella joined her for the Celebrity Fight Night, in Phoenix, US, which raises money and awareness for various charities.
Other celebs in attendance included actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson.
Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus have all appeared in music videos either as performers or romantic love interests pertaining to the song in the video. Which of these three is the hottest music video star?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Kristen appeared in a Marcus Foster music video called I Was Broken, and while she didn’t sing, she certainly conveyed a sense of sensuality that would be incredibly hard to beat. Boyfriend and Twilight co-star must have loved watching Kristen in this music video!
Miley Cyrus appeared in her own music video for her song Can’t Be Tamed. And although she exuded some animal-like qualities, she no doubt qualified as sexy in someone’s mind—most especially that of boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.
Selena Gomez appeared in her own music video A Year Without Rain, and conveyed the sweet innocence she’s so widely known for, while looking sexy and moremature at the same time. Her music took on a much hotter appeal with her last concert tour. Boyfriend Justin Bieber is no doubt very proud of Selena’s growth in the music business.
So which of these three music video stars do you think is the hottest? Would you cast your vote for Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez or Miley Cyrus? Do any of these young ladies cross a line—stepping over hot and bordering on raunchy, or do you find they all keep their sensuality at a respectable level?
