Today's Top Five 8/13/19
Lots of updates on the Miley Cyrus/Liam Hemsworth break up. Heartache can be good for the creative juices. Miley Cyrus posted a selfie today of her in the recording studio. The Daily Mail reports the singer has also relocated to a $2.5 million ranch next to the Malibu Hills home she shared with Liam and their pets.
Liam seems to be keeping it positive by posting a photo of a beautiful sunset on Instagram with the caption “Hi all. Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward. This is a private matter and I have not nor will I be making any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love.”
A Canadian student is getting help with school from Taylor Swift. The fan named, Ayesha posted online that she couldn’t afford school. Swift sent her the money to pay for rent and tuition. ($6,386.47 CAD, $4,809.65 USD)
Don’t try to threaten Whitney Cummings because it won’t work. Someone was trying to extort money from the writer/comedian over a photo she posted that contained accidental nudity and was deleted. But Whitney took away their power by posting the photo herself saying, “They all must think I’m way more famous than I am, but they also must think I’m way more easily intimidated than I am. If anyone is gonna make money or likes off my nipple, it’s gonna be me. So here it all is, you foolish dorks.” I love that a bunch of her fans and fellow comics started sharing their own photos in support with the hashtag, #IStandWithWhitney
