Is Miley Going to Stick With Mom or Dad Post-Divorce?

Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus are getting divorced but they’ve yet to decide how they’ll be splitting up their biggest asset: Miley. With Miley being worth close to a billion dollars, she’s obviously the family bread winner. She’ll be turning 18 soon enough, but whatever parent she chooses to keep managing her career (or at least on her payroll) will be in the money for life.

Miley seems to be sticking close to her dad ever since rumors broke that Tish cheated on Billy Ray with that sea monster Bret Michaels. A source close to the family was quoted as saying, “Miley and Billy Ray have an incredible bond. This whole situation has hurt Miley’s relationship with her mother — she’s definitly going to side with her father.”

And it seems like Miley and her mother haven’t been that close for some time now. You guys may remember that I reviewed Miley’s show at the House of Blues earlier this year where the singer put her mom on blast for skipping the show due to illness.

It’s not looking good for Tish. It’s a shame that the girl even has to make a choice, though.

Divorce Watch: Tish Finley-Cyrus Had An Affair With Bret Michaels

After reading this story and relating it to you guys, I’m going to head to the kitchen to soak my eyes in a nice, tall, acidic glass of orange juice, and throw a giant dollop of vodka in there for good measure. Then I’m going to swish the eyes around in the glass (carefully, mind you; hard to do this shit with, you know, no eyes), suck the entire thing back – eyes and all – and let the whole mess digest in my stomach. Because the eyes? They’re so much better off down there, closer to my own bowels, than of the bowels of this story, which are sure to get blacker and stinkier before things get better.

Apparently Billy Ray Cyrus was the one who filed for divorce against his wife of a few decades, Tish Finley-Cyrus, because she couldn’t keep it in her pants, and had a long-standing affair with Bret Michaels, who Miley Cyrus has an odd musical affinity for. Or maybe … aw, fuck no, I’m not going down that road. But I will say, who knows – maybe these crazy sumbitches really do keep it all in the family. So, yeah. Gross. From Us Weekly:

Michaels, 47, “became close to the entire family” this past February when he and Miley released the racy duet “Nothing to Lose,” an insider tells Us Weekly.

He and Tish, 43, soon began carrying on an on-the-sly romance, sources tell Us Weekly. Tish was seen at Michaels’ Feb. 28 show at the Key Club in L.A., and he had once asked her production company’s help to adapt his book, Roses & Thorns, into a movie.

“Billy Ray was completely unaware of what was going on,” the source says of the “Achy Breaky Heart” crooner, who is seeking joint custody of their three minor children, Miley (who turns 18 Nov. 23), Braison, 16, and Noah, 10. (They have three older children from previous relationships.)

Though a rep for Michaels refutes the allegations, telling Us Weekly, “There has never been an affair or a fling,” and a rep for Tish also denies the dalliance, the Cyrus source insists, “It was a professional relationship that turned into something more.”

So there you have it guys. They’re clearly sleeping together. Like, as we speak. While listening to “Achy, Breaky Heart.” On a zebra-print rug in front of Bret’s heart-shaped, rose-adorned bed.

… Git your glasses ready, Shep … I’m on my way out the kitch’n and I’ma headin’ for that big ol’ bottle!

Miley Cyrus Stars in Rock Mafia Video For Latest Single, ‘The Big Bang’

And here we have Miley Cyrus in the performance of her life – at least, uh, as far as I’m concerned – whilst starring in Rock Mafia’s latest video for their new single, ‘The Big Bang.’

The video, in case you can’t watch it, or well … follow it, involves a man (Keven Zegers) lamenting the loss of his dead girlfriend (portrayed so keenly by Miley), and he sees her – and the vehicle accident that killed her – everywhere.

Miley steams up the camera in a few scenes where she overtly locks lips with the attractive Zegers (and who the hell is this Rock Mafia band, anyway? Never heard of ‘em, but then again, they don’t really have the sound I’m into anyway) and struts her stuff in tight, short leather getups and lots of lace, nailpolish, and bangle bracelets.

Classic Miley, classic doings. It’s just so much better now that she’s going to be legal to do it, without the speculation and constant shoulder-tapping of the Parents Television Council.

What did you think of the video? Too hardcore, or just right for Miley the, um, rocker?

Miley Cyrus’s Mom and Dad Are Splitting

Yup, the Hollywood couple that you thought for sure would last the strains of time and Botox, shitty country songs, many pointless name changes, and teenage girls with identity crises who wear skimpy costumes and influence their toddler sisters to debut lingerie lines — it’s official:  Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Finley are gittin’ a dee-vorce!

The couple, who cited irreconcilable differences, filed for the legality late yesterday afternoon in Tennessee, and released this joint statement to their ‘fans’:

“As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family. We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.”

This, after seventeen years of marriage and forty kids. Well hell. Sorry to hear that your marriage didn’t work out, guys, but hey. There’s always Dollywood. And the profits from that horrendous Walmart clothing line.

Miley Cyrus Demonstrates an Ounce of Maturity While Chewing Out Paps

Miley Cyrus has been so over the paparazzi for quite some time now, and she’s been venting her frustrations more and more openly lately.

Yesterday some paparazzi continued to follow her after they’d already “gotten their picture” and were so desperate to catch up to her, that they cut off another driver. At that point Miley stopped her car, flagged down the driver they cut off and apologized profusely for the camera man’s behavior. Then she calmly approached the paparazzi in their car and told him that he was putting people in danger and that there was no where else to follow her for the rest of the day.

I’m shocked at how maturely Miley handled this situation. Props, girl.

Miley Cyrus’s New Video and the Backlash it’s Receiving From – Surprise, Surprise – Parents

Have you seen this video yet? Probably not. There wasn’t a huge amount of hubbub around it ’til it started pissing parents off, so there you have it.  Guess it mustn’t have been all that great to begin with.

My take? The video’s really stupid. And, yup, so is the song if you’re wondering my take on that, too. Miley’s bumping and grinding in a white beater is painfully awkward, the synthesizers don’t quite take the nasal quality away from her voice entirely enough, and her chipmunk grill is overly-accentuated by the strobe lights in the discotheque.

Parents Television Council president Tim Winter claims that Miley’s sending the wrong message to today’s kids:

“It is unfortunate that she would participate in such a sexualized video like this one. It sends messages to her fan base that are diametrically opposed to everything she has done up to this point. Miley built her fame and fortune entirely on the backs of young girls, and it saddens us that she seems so eager to distance herself from that fan base so rapidly.”

I mean, yeah. She’s writhing pantsless on a bed and rubbing up on her chest and frankly, the girl’s got some great legs, but I think the whole thing comes off about as sexual as The Care Bears in Concert.

Miley Cyrus Swarmed By Paparazzi, I Actually Feel Badly For Her

There’s this video going around today of Miley Cyrus bitching out the paparazzi after she leaves a Thai restaurant with Demi Lovato and I think the common opinion might be that she’s acting like her bratty self, but I actually felt a little sad for her while watching this.

Here’s the scenario: Miley arrived alone to the restaurant and valeted her car. As she was walking in to meet her friend, she kind of snapped at a couple of the photogs. There’s some video of Miley and Demi talking over dinner and from the look on Miley’s face, they’re discussing something very teenage and dramatic. I kept thinking that they looked like any two normal girlfriends eating dinner and complaining about the men in their life or what have you. After they were done eating, Demi and Miley left the restaurant together and the cameras started flashing. This is where things get a little bit uncomfortable for me.

After a moment or two of letting the paps have their way with them, Miley asks them to put their cameras down. Of course it was in her typical “10-year-old-birthday-girl-meets-a-raptor” tone, but it doesn’t take much to realize that she’s just over having her picture taken in that moment. Then Miley pulled her jacket over her face and stood next to a bush while she continued to wait for her car.

That’s so sad, you guys. I mean, in the grand scheme of things it’s certainly not that bad, but can you imagine hiding under your jacket in the bushes because a dozen grown men are sticking cameras in your faces and calling out things to antagonize you? And this is far from the worst paparazzi footage we’ve seen. I can’t imagine that it’s too big of a leap from this to freaking out on someone with an umbrella.
