Did Miley Cyrus accuse Liam Hemsworth of cheating on her new album?
Miley Cyrus released her eighth studio album, "Endless Summer Vacation," on Friday (March 10), and fans are convinced her ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth, inspired much of the new music. That includes "Muddy Feet," in which the singer appears to accuse an ex of being unfaithful. "And you smell like perfume that I didn't purchase / Now I know why you've been closing the curtains / Get the f*** out of my house," Miley sings. Liam's name isn't used on the new track. But the album's previously released single, "Flowers" — which dropped on Liam's birthday, Jan. 13 — includes details that echo her relationship with the Aussie actor, which ended in 2019. We "built a home and watched it burn," she sings at one point, seemingly referencing the former couple's home in Malibu, California, that was destroyed by the Woolsey Fire in 2018. "Muddy Feet – oh she was MAD! She's called Liam a cheater in like 28 different ways now and I eat it up every time," one person wrote on Twitter. "Liam thought flowers would be the end of him but wait till he hears muddy feet," wrote another.
The cheating rumors, by the way, are far from new. When similar speculation surfaced on social media in 2019, Miley even denied the claims herself, telling Twitter users: "I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating." In happier news, "Endless Summer Vacation" also boasts plenty of joyful love songs — and Miley's reportedly been dating drummer Maxx Morando since 2021.

Alec Baldwin praises Robert Blake despite late star's past 'legal entanglements'
Alec Baldwin honored actor Robert Blake after his death on Thursday (March 9), with a tribute focused on the late star's work rather than his "legal entanglements," by which Alec presumably meant Robert's 2001 murder trial in the death of his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley. (He was acquitted of murder but later found liable for her wrongful death in a civil trial.) "Robert Blake has died. I realize that many people have had harsh feelings toward him. His life seemed to involve many dramatic legal entanglements," Alec wrote on Instagram. "Today, I want [to] remember him as the incredibly gifted actor he was. A child actor who made countless films in the '40s." Citing films like "Treasure of the Sierra Madre," "A Town Without Pity" and more, Alec praised the "Baretta" star's performance in 1967's "In Cold Blood," saying it "cemented his place in movie history," and sharing a clip from the "masterpiece."
Alec, meanwhile, is facing involuntary manslaughter charges in the fatal "Rust" set shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. On Wednesday, Deadline reported the actor entered a plea of not guilty at a hearing in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Khloe Kardashian talks overcoming past weight obsession
Khloé Kardashian has long since kicked her bathroom scale to the curb. The Hulu star, 38, recently opened up to InStyle about how she changed her perspective on her weight after realizing she'd become "obsessive" about it. "I never thought I was fat until the media told me I was fat," Khloe notes. After her 2016 divorce from Lamar Odom, though, she became unhealthily focused on what she weighed.
"When I first started [working out], I cared so much. Maybe [it's] just being younger. I think you care about the scale," she explained. "The scale Fs with you. I don't even look at a scale anymore. I think it's really unhealthy. I haven't in years. They're just numbers." Instead, she now focuses on the feel-good vibes she gets from exercise, not the visual end result of her workouts. "I go off of how confident I feel in myself," Khloe said. "I'm all about [doing] what's best for me, mind, body, soul. There is no one size fits all."

Jenna Bush Hager wrote Hoda Kotb 'a love letter' when she returned to 'Today' after daughter's health scare
Jenna Bush Hager has Hoda Kotb's back — and then some. "All I'm trying to do is be there for her in every single way possible," Jenna told People this week. Hoda returned to the show on Monday (March 6) after being out for weeks while her 3-year-old daughter, Hope, was in the ICU. "I wrote her a love letter when she got back," Jenna gushed. "That just expressed, like, my deepest desire for her."
She was similarly emotional while speaking to ET about her colleague's return. "Hoda makes my life full," she said. "And it's so interesting, but you don't really know until somebody's kind of gone, unexpectedly, how much you depend on them. I mean, I knew I adored her, but I wrote her when she came back and I said, 'I don't even know if you know how much you impact my life,'" Jenna added. The pair have co-anchored "Today" since 2008.
Why Brooke Shields' teenage daughters were upset about her new documentary
In her upcoming documentary, "Pretty Baby," Brooke Shields delves into some pretty dark moments from her past, including the many times she was sexualized as a child star, then raped by a producer shortly after graduating from college. Now 57 and a mother of two teenage girls, Brooke said this week that she "got in trouble" with daughters Rowan, 19, and Grier, 16, for failing to tell them what she'd endured. "You know I thought I did [tell them], but there's a lot in the documentary they did not know about … which I got in trouble with them for, because they were mad that I didn't inform them about everything. But needless to say, it opened up some other conversations," she told People at Time's Women of the Year Gala in Los Angeles on Wednesday (March 8). Referencing the potential dangers of social media, she went on to say, "these kinds of conversations are really important to have for our young women, because we need to be honest about what we're facing and how to find our own agency. And we need these young women to find their own agency as early as possible."
Named after 1978's "Pretty Baby" — in which a 12-year-old Brooke played a child prostitute — the new documentary features the star's emotional account of being sexually assaulted in 1987. "I didn't fight that much. I didn't. I just absolutely froze," she recalls. "I thought one 'No' should've been enough, and I just thought, 'Stay alive and get out,' and I just shut it out." "Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields" is out April 3 on Hulu.
Cara Delevingne says 'heartbreaking' viral airport pics inspired her to get sober
"Sometimes you need a reality check," Cara Delevingne says in Vogue's April 2023 cover story. That moment arrived for the model and actress last fall, when photos of her looking disheveled and unbalanced at an airport went viral, sparking concern among fans. "In a way those pictures were something to be grateful for," she adds, revealing she checked into rehab late last year and is now four months sober. "I hadn't slept. I was not OK," she says, reflecting on the photos. "It's heartbreaking because I thought I was having fun, but at some point it was like, OK, I don't look well."
Having become depressed during the pandemic, she says she felt like she "had no purpose," explaining: "Instead of taking the time to really learn something new or do something new, I got very wrapped up in misery, wallowing and partying. It was a really sad time." She continues: "I've had interventions of a sort, but I wasn't ready. That's the problem. If you're not face-first on the floor and ready to get up again, you won't." This time around, she's taking the longer path to sobriety with a 12-step program. "People want my story to be this after-school special where I just say, 'Oh look, I was an addict, and now I'm sober and that's it.' And it's not as simple as that," she adds. "It doesn't happen overnight."
The Oscars decline bid to include Volodymyr Zelensky in ceremony
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has met and even befriended stars like Jessica Chastain, Sean Penn and Mila Kunis. But his bid to appear on the 2023 Oscars was once again declined, Variety reported this week. Insiders told the outlet WME agent Mike Simpson asked the Academy to include the president in some way, but the request was not approved. A similar pitch was made to include him last year, but that failed as well.
The former actor and comic has appeared at a number of festivals and awards shows amid Russia's ongoing attacks on his country, including the Grammy awards, the Golden Globes and and the Cannes Film Festival. The 2023 Academy Awards airs Sunday (March 12) from Los Angeles.
