Seems the flu is the only thing that can slow down Miley Cyrus. The provocative singer, 21, had to cancel her Bangerz tour concert in Charlotte, N.C., Monday night due to major “throat and sinus” issues, E! News reports. A tour rep, who did not mention how Cyrus’ tongue was faring, says her Raleigh show should go on as planned Tuesday.
Mentally, Miley is in a good place. She tells the May issue of Elle that she’s fully recovered from her breakup with ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth. “[I’m] so much stronger than the person three years ago, who would have thought they would have died if they didn’t have a boyfriend.”
She also thinks there’s a double standard about her raunchy act. “I mean, guy rappers grab their crotch all f***ing day and have hos around them, but no one talks about it,” the former Disney star said. Has she got a point?
Taylor Swift is used to writing songs about romance gone wrong but these days, she has something else heartbreaking to croon about. The New York Post reports that the singer’s parents, Scott and Andrea Swift, have separated. Sources tell Page Six the feuding couple are tough to deal with on a professional level and that their rift is causing issues within the hit singer’s camp. Case in point: Taylor’s longtime publicist Paula Erickson quit last month.
Selena Gomez has more problems, but this one’s totally out of her control: A man arrested twice in one week at her L.A. area house was charged with felony stalking and violating a court order to stay away from the singer-actress. Che Cruz, 20, pleaded not guilty to the charges Monday, and his bail was set at $160,000. He was arrested Friday after he returned to Gomez’s home just hours after he was released from jail in a case in which he was ordered to stay away from her. The L.A. district attorney’s office said Cruz jumped the fence at Gomez’s home before his second arrest. If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.
What’s in a name?
If you ever see Scarlett Johansson around town, for the love of all that is holy, don’t call her ScarJo. “I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky,” the pregnant actress, 29, tells Glamour. “It’s lazy and flippant. And there’s something kind of violent about it. There’s something insulting about it.”
