Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 storm when it first made landfall in Texas.
We have all seen the photos of the flooding. We've seen highways that have flooded so high that the water above them has waves.
We've seen people standing on rooftops, people riding boats between houses, and heard the horrifying stories of people who were swept away by the water.
Celebrities have heard this, too, and they have been using their considerable platforms and their own personal resources to help with the relief effort.
As climate change continues to destabilize what were once more temperate weather patterns, these "500 year storms" will be coming more and more frequently.
Many believe that we need a better coordinate governmental response when these disasters strike. It's good to hear stories of private citizens acting as heroes, but it's better if they never have to.
In the mean time, however, boat owners have been taking time off of work and traveling with their boats towards Texas where they hope to help distribute supplies and reach people who are still stranded.
Celebrities are donating money to the relief effort, but some stars are doing even more.

Their whole whirlwind maybe married but not really ever married thing is very confusing.
We all know that Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus have been will-they-or-won’t-they-ing since the dawn of time. However, this recent IG post from Billy Ray Cyrus of Miley in a white dress is making everyone wonder if they finally done did it.
From the looks of this it could be anything from a music video, to a wedding, to Miley just wearing some tacky shit. Let’s be real, any and all of those things are very likely.
Considering that both Miley and Liam seem to have dropped off the face of the earth lately, people are asking if they have tied the knot in secret and are fucking in a bungalow on a rich person island somewhere.
In my incredibly psychic opinion: maybe.
Miley Cyrus apparently has 2016 by the 'nads ... or it is, at least, the year that she stopped being so damn obnoxious about everything all the freaking time.
Taking the cover of Variety's brand-new Power of Women issue, Cyrus was interviewed about Disney, her sexuality, and nipple pasties.
While most of you are just here for Miley Cyrus' nipple pasties—it's okay, we don't judge around here—she actually has a lot of good to say...and above all, it makes sense. Good on her, you know?
About her sexuality, Cyrus says, "My whole life, I didn't understand my own gender and my own sexuality," which isn't hard to believe, growing up all Disney -- and that's sad as hell.
"I always hated the word 'bisexual,' " Miley explained, "because that's even putting me in a box." Insert obligatory box joke here.
"I don't ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl," she clarifies. "Also, my nipple pasties and s--t never feld sexualized to me."
Well, good on you, girl, for being blind for the last few years.
Oh, but wait, never mind -- she says that her eyes have been opened for a really, really long time. Our bad!
Miley continues, "My eyes started opening up in fifth or sixth grade. My first relationship in my life was with a chick," she says, inferring that her Southern upbringing frowned upon this.
But she credits the universe -- the youuuuuuuniverse, y'all -- to ensure that she remains on her true path like any good Jedi knight, and says, "The universe has always given me the power to know I'll be OK."
She also reveals that there might be a little element of regret to one of the greatest (?) songs ever written, "Wrecking Ball."
About the song -- and unforgettable video -- she says, "On my tombstone, I didn't want the 'Wrecking Ball' lyrics."
"I'm the only f--king Disney star who would say I'm pro-lesbian and gay before it was OK to say that."
Uh, sure, Miley. Keep that universe or whatever it is running through your head.
All jokes aside, though, Miley's doing much better than she has in previous years. She sounds more grounded and less outlandish -- it's true, believe it or not -- than she has in previous interviews.
Further, she puts presidential nominee Donald Trump in the same baskets that the Kardashians ride around in, and that makes things OK in our book, too.
About Trump, Miley says, "This is not a dig, but I do think there's something that goes with the Kardashians and Trump. The Kardashians are better than Trump, because they are not trying to run the country."
"They are just trying to be famous, and that's fine," she concedes (it's not).
Keep on keeping on, girl. By 2020, you might have all of your ish together, and wouldn't that be a blessing?
Justin Bieber has had a lot of gal pals during his time in the limelight.
There's been a string of confirmed relationships, along with a string of rumored ones.
We've compiled a list of Bieber's extensive relationship history.
1. Miley Cyrus - 2009
2. Caitlin Beadles - 2007-2009
3. Jessica Jarrell - 2009-2010
4. Mandy Rain - 2009

Did Miley Cyrus just confirm her engagement to Liam Hemsworth?
It sure seems that way after a recent post on Instagram.
The 23-year-old singer took to her social media account while wearing a nice T-shirt that is clearly a nod to her longtime partner.
It had his surname on the back of it. Could she be using his name to sell more merchandise on her next tour?
It wouldn't be all that surprising.
Since reuniting last December, both stars have kept mum on anything about their private life.
Maybe they've realized that having their relationship plastered over the Internet isn't the right way about it.
There's got to be reasons why they even split up in the first place, but it appears that they are happy... for now.
Sometimes you need a break from your love to realize just how much they mean to you and that's what appears to have happened here.
They were engaged in 2012, but it all went south just one year later.
Even with the public not getting a definite answer about their relationship status, Cyrus has been spotted frequently wearing her engagement ring.
According to Us Weekly, on a recent trip to Australia, the wedding was a hot topic with Liam's family.
“Miley’s mentioned she’s interested in having a bunch of bouncy houses,” a second source says. “Like at a carnival!”
The couple met in 2009 on the set of The Last Song and it quickly developed into a full blown relationship.
They were engaged three years later, but they never made it down the aisle. They have appeared to remain on good terms, however.
It should be interesting to see how it plays out this time for them.
There's word that Cyrus recently purchased a home in Malibu for the couple, but Hemsworth isn't quite ready to move in yet.
Are you rooting for these two to make it?
Liam Hemsworth has been impressively silent when it comes to his relationship with Miley Cyrus.
The two rekindled their relationship around the new year, but neither party has spoken publicly about it.
Now, in an interview with GQ Australia, Liam opens up a little and confirms he and Miley are very much back on, confessing that she makes him happy.
“I guess when I feel something, then I just feel it and I go for it,” Hemsworth said, speaking about their relationship.
“I make my decisions about what’s going to make me happy, what I think is right and what I want to do — and I don’t worry too much outside of that,” he continued.
While the Hunger Games actor does not specifically reveal their exact relationship status, he hinted that fans already knew.
“People will figure it out, they already have," he said. "They’re not dumb.”
What the WHAT?!
What does he mean we've figured it out?
In the past few months, we've heard rumors of an engagement, a pregnancy, cheating by both parties, breakups and even a secret, unofficial beach wedding in which they exchanged palm fronds for rings.
Is he saying it's all true?
You're killing us, Liam.
The most prevalent rumor as of now is that the two are engaged to be married and are preparing to wed sometime this year in Liam's native Australia.
We've also received reports that Miley is pregnant and planning a shotgun wedding, but we're going to go out on a limb and say that's probably false.
But you never know, and Liam hasn't denied it.
Ever since Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth rekindled their relationship at the beginning of the year, engagement rumors have been swirling.
In fact, one report claimed that the two already had a "secret" beach wedding in Australia.
But Hemsworth himself squashed those rumors when he appeared on Australia's TV Week earlier this month.
"I am not engaged, no," the actor said simply.
But that small detail isn't stopping his girlfriend from planning their wedding, a source tells Us Weekly.
Miley is already making arrangements for a summer wedding and is turning to her mother Tish for help on writing the vows, according to the publication.
But does Liam know?
We're guessing not.
The last we heard, the actor was disgusted at Miley's poor housekeeping habits.
"There's dog poop and pee everywhere, old food, pizza boxes, takeout containers, fast-food wrappers and dirty dishes piled up," a source claimed.
"The combination of all that mixed with the constant weed-smoking and the bong-water spills makes the place smell horrible."
In fact, Hemsworth was so fed up with the mess that he issued Miley an ultimatum:
Clean your crap or we're over!
Quite frankly, we have our doubts about the veracity of that story, and frankly, we're thinking this one sounds a little dubious, too.
So, Miley Cyrus is a big ol' slob, and her sometimes-boyfriend, sometimes-fiance Liam Hemsworth can't take it anymore.
According to Life & Style, the singer routinely fails to clean up the waste of her numerous dogs, cats, rabbits and, IDK, meerkats?
The girl's got a lot of animals.
Not only that, she basically treats her Hidden Hills mansion like a frat house.
"There's dog poop and pee everywhere, old food, pizza boxes, takeout containers, fast-food wrappers and dirty dishes piled up," a source told the magazine.
And what frat house is complete without the distinct scent of eau de bong water?
"The combination of all that mixed with the constant weed-smoking and the bong-water spills makes the place smell horrible," the source continued.
Can we get an ad for Febreeze in here, guys?
Gotta work that product placement.
Unfortunately, it sounds as though even the world's strongest air freshener won't help Messy Miley, and Liam has given her an ultimatum:
Clean it up, or we're dunzo!
Will Miley comply?
The odd thing about this story is that even if Miley is disgusting and treats her home like a spacious, overpriced dumpster, we're pretty sure she employs a housekeeper or twelve.
We wouldn't want this person's job, but we can't imagine Miley's house could get all that rank when she's got a clean-up crew following her around with a rag and a can of Lysol.
Earlier this month, Liam confirmed that he and Miley were not engaged, but the pair basically announced they were back together a few weeks ago.
They appeared in public together during a lunch date in LA amid rumors that they had rekindled their relationship over the new year.
We don't believe Liam's really that upset over a messy house.
He's dating Miley Cyrus, which in and of itself is a testament to the man's unbelievable tolerance.
What antics is she holdin’ up her sleeve this time?
Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys are joining The Voice‘s panel of judges this coming season, according to The Wrap. Though there’s no question of the latter sharing the table with the ‘bromance’ of Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, brows are raised on the former. Hmm.
She actually served as a key advisor for Season 10, so we need not hold our horses for Hannah Montana‘s promotion, especially now that a source has shared how much of “a megabucks deal” this is for her.
Could Miley be the secret to further boost the reality show’s ratings?
More, more, more Ms. Cyrus!
This is cute -- and kinda random!
That's not clear right now -- other than Miley posting on the pic that she would swipe right -- but ch-ch-check out the pic (below)!!!

Celebrities who are passionate about their craft and who know how to keep their earnings get to fulfill their dreams any time they want. Many have developed the habit of investing in real estate properties in places they want to reside in or enjoy a holiday with their partner or families.
Even the younger generation of stars are now big earners and property owners. Through sheer determination and perseverance, they are able to earn more and buy things they want to own in a shorter period of time compared to the ordinary citizens. But then again, it’s not just pure luck for them because what they have right now is a result of their sweat and tears.
Owning a property at a young age is a huge achievement as many people in their 20’s still live with their parents. Here are some of the popular celebrities who are fortunate to have bought their own homes in their teens and 20’s.
Taylor Swift is one celebrity who continues to reap huge success worldwide. It is no surprise then if she owns several mansions. One is in Rhode Island worth $17.75 million and the latest one she bought is in Beverly Hills worth a whopping $25 million.
This Beverly Hills mansion used to be owned by the late movie producer, Samuel Goldwyn. With seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, this home is situated on an almost two-acre lot.
Did you know that Nick Jonas bought his first house when he was only 16 years old? Together with his brothers Joe and Kevin, these Disney celebrity siblings bought a mansion outside of Dallas, Texas for $3.2 million. The huge house has six bedrooms and six bathrooms.
Canadian sensation Justin Bieber also bought his own mansion at the age of 18. Situated in Calabasas, California, the estate cost $6.5 million which has a movie theater, swimming pool, a bar and a library.
Just last year, though, Bieber settled in his new home in Beverly Hills worth $35,000 per month to rent. It features six bedrooms and six bathrooms.
At only 17 years of age, Miley Cyrus already bought her own home in Toluca Lake, California. Worth $3.4 million, the mansion has four bedrooms, three swimming pools and tennis courts.
In 2015, she again bought a mansion on Hidden Hills worth $4 million. Measuring 5,123 square feet, the house has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, a stable that can accommodate 10 horses, a riding arena, veggie garden, a hen house and vineyard.
Woody Allen is about to get involved with another very young lady.
Professionally, at least, this time.
The legendary director, writer and actor has signed Miley Cyrus to co-star in the new series he's set to bring to Amazon some time in 2016.
Cyrus will anchor the untitled program alongside Elaine May and Allen himself, as the show is scheduled to air six half-hour episode series and be set in the 1960s.
That's all the information Allen has released thus far about the wildly anticipated project.
The role will mark Miley's first major television role since Hannah Montana and the show will mark Allen's first-ever foray into television.
"I don't know how I got into this. I have no ideas and I'm not sure where to begin," Allen said when the series was announced a year ago. "My guess is that Roy Price will regret this."
Price, the Vice President of Amazon Studios, believes otherwise, however.
"Woody Allen is a visionary creator who has made some of the greatest films of all-time, and it's an honor to be working with him on his first television series," he said in a statement.
"From Annie Hall to Blue Jasmine, Woody has been at the creative forefront of American cinema and we couldn't be more excited to premiere his first TV series exclusively on Prime Instant Video next year."
Miley Cyrus is starting 2016 ‘down under!’
…With no less than ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth! Are they getting back together?
We don’t know for sure, but the only photographic evidence are photos of the “Wrecking Ball” sensation with Liam’s sis-in-laws, Elsa Pataky (Chris’ wife) and Samantha Hemsworth (Luke’s), out and about, especially during the Falls Festival at Byron Bay.
An insider dishes in detail to E! News, “She doesn’t know where it will go, but she definitely still loves him and wants to be with him. Liam has an interest in being back together too.”
More Miley and Liam!
If this photo is anything to go by, then all signs point to "reunited and it feels so good."
At the Falls Music Festival in Australia, Elsa Pataky took an Instagram with a group of friends, including Miley Cyrus, and shared it with followers.
"I love people I can be crazy with!!" Pataky wrote, tagging Cyrus.
According to Radar Online, Cyrus and Pataky's brother-in-law, Liam Hemsworth are seeing one another again after ending their engagement over two years ago.
The two were seen "cuddling and kissing" at the festival, which they attended with Pataky, Chris Hemsworth and the rest of the family.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Cyrus has been spending the past few days with Hemsworth, as fans spotted them in Byron Bay, Australia.
Cyrus and Hemsworth met on the set of 2010's The Last Song, and got engaged in June 2012.
In September 2013, they called off their engagement. This came a few weeks after Cyrus' shocking performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, in which she wore a latex nude two-piece and acted like a total tart.
In July 2014, Hemsworth was overheard telling friends that he and Cyrus shared a "powerful connection" despite being apart, and that they would always be "best friends."
Alrighty, so love lifts us up where we belong in 2016.
Miley Cyrus and her X-rated ways are very much back.
Not Safe for Wife or Work warning!
After donning a fake penis and taking concert attendees by extreme surprise in Chicago last week, on the first night of her Dead Petz tour, Cyrus has now gone ahead and taken off her shirt.
What else is new, right?
Well... this music video for the track "Lighter" is new!
"F--k yeah! After our 1st show in Chicago (which was totally turnt) we loved seeing y'all singing along to all the Dead Petz jamsssss but seemed like this one was a fan favorite!!!!!" Miley wrote to 46 million Facebook friends over the weekend.
"For all of you who can't be with us in Detroit tonight and of course for all of you who will here is the official Lighter music video directed by me and Wayne Coyne featuring Jen Stark's bad ass animated kaleidoscopic projections!!!!!"
The video is definitely different, that's sure.
As different as a concert entirely in the nude, which Miley is supposedly considering? No.
But this is some mesmerizing, sort of psychedelic stuff.
Check it out now and react to Miley's latest half-naked antics below. What do you think?
Miley Cyrus joked about Kim Davis... danced like a 1950s high school student... and performed two new songs.

We all know demanding people in our day to day life. The person who MUST have a certain coffee cup from the company stash. The one who can't STAND if the office manager doesn't buy a certain creamer. That guy who complains to anyone who can hear if he has to park somewhere other than his "usual" spot.
Those people can be total buzzkills.
Well, guess what. Some of our celebrities can be demanding too. But this is what it takes to get them on the stage, so managers and reps and venue personnel the world over meet their demands and enjoy their brush with fame. (Or they don't. That's totally possible.)
Check out 29 outrageous celebrity tour demands! So. Many. Snacks. (And so. many. towels.)

Yesterday, we reported on the sad, strange, confusing rumors that Miley Cyrus is hooking up with Dane Cook.
Miley's the type of gal who will go to town on a vibrator during a magazine photo shoot, so we briefly thought it might be possible that she would be willing to allow Cook to drip his sour stink of failure, Milwaukee's Best and Jack Link's all over her.
Thankfully, it seems even Miley draws the line somewhere.
Cook was asked about the rumors by E! Online today, and he responded with what Dane Cook considers a joke.
"I'm always the last to know these things," he remarked, probably with a high-larious smirk. "Just let Miley know that I'll pick her up for dinner at 8."
Ha! He's the last to know even though the rumor is about him! Where does he come up with this stuff? Oh yeah, he mostly steals it from other comedians.
The bad news is, Dane Cook is still out in the world attempting humor. The good news is, Miley's parents can cancel the plans to force her into rehab.
She might be smoking enough weed to collapse Snoop Dogg's lungs, but the possibility of having sex with Dane Cook presented itself, and she just said no. Clearly, the girl's got a good head on her shoulders.
In fact, we can't think of a better role model for today's kids.
As you probably know Miley Cyrus loves to shock.
Basically, she's running into the problem Marilyn Manson had in the early 2000s: She's just running out of ways to make the squares gasp.
The problem is even worse in the modern era, as social media makes it so that every freaky thought that pops into her head ends up online within minutes and is quickly forgotten.
Sure, Miley's feud with Nicki Minaj at the VMAs was interesting, but 1. she was more deer-in-the-headlights than instigator, and 2. the always-fickle celebrity media has already moved on.
So how can Miley capture out attention in a way that might allow her to hold onto it for a week or so? Why, by modifying her body so that she looks like a Hot Topic cashier by day, professional bondage mistress by night, of course!
“She’s leaning toward getting silicone horns implanted in her head," a source tells In Touch. "Miley wants them to be very out there, like devil horns!”
Of course, if you thought she was gonna stop there - you don't know Miley.
“She’s also interested in a corset piercing,” says the unidentified friend. “It’s when you get holes pierced around your spine and you can actually put ribbons through those holes in a crisscross fashion to mimic the look of a corset.”
Yes, devil horns and spinal piercings. Those might even beat out a degree in philosophy as things you're most likely to regret in your 30s. Good luck, Miley!
Miley Cyrus finally responds to Nicki Minaj! THIS is what's really good!!!
As you've probably heard by now, Nicki Minaj slammed Miley Cyrus during her acceptance speech at the VMAs on Sunday night.
At first, the moment literally seemed too good to be true.
But now that multiple sources have confirmed that the Miley-Nicki feud is real, Nicki's fans are joining the fight in a big way.
Yes, the "What's good?" heard 'round the world is now being echoed all over Miley's Instagram page.
It's a response that brings to mind February's beef between Kid Rock and Beyonce that resulted in the 'Yonce fans blow up Rock's IG page with bee Emojis.
The swarm eventually passed, and the wrath of Her Minajesty's subjects will as well, but the timing couldn't be worse for Miley, who has a new album to promote.
Of course, nothing could keep Miley off social media (or out of the headlines), and she's been doing a good job of keeping the world's attention in the wake of the VMAs. (Turns out, masturbating in Interview magazine is a decent way to drum up publicity.)
We'd say she's having a tough week (feuds, a mostly negative response to her hosting gig, and mixed reviews for her new album), but in Mileyworld, there's no such thing as bad press.
That's because according to Viacom, the Miley Cyrus-led event raked in 9.8 million viewers on Sunday, an increase over last year's 8.3 million!
But not so fast... because most outlets are reporting that ratings actually dropped. So what's the deal??
The confusion comes from the original tweet that while the VMAs may have reached 9.8 million people, that was across all ten of Viacom's networks, as opposed to 2014's 8.3 million viewers straight from MTV.
And even if less people actually watched the show on MTV, it's still the highest rated awards show of the year!
Still, we think the fact that more people tuned in to watch Miley and the gang across more platforms speaks to how entertaining the night was.
Did U enjoy this year's VMAs??
[Image via MTV/Instagram.]
Taylor Swift might have taken home some hardware last night, but the 2015 VMAs were dominated by Miley Cyrus, who hosted, and Kanye West, who gave such an insanely long speech that it started to feel like he was hosting.
But while she couldn't compete with the music world's most bombastic weirdos during the show itself, the after-party was Taylor's time to shine.
Taylor's girl squad came out in force for the awards (nine gal pals joined her on the red carpet in lieu of boyfriend Calvin Harris) and afterward, they all showed up to let loose at the swanky West Hollywood hotspot Ysabel.
In some ways, it was like a get-together you might host at your own crib:
Partiers enjoyed sushi and Fireball shots, and at least one guest got white-girl wasted.
In other ways, it was more like the kind of party you wish you hosted at your crib:
A-list celebs were everywhere, and they drunkenly dished dirt on which fellow entertainers they just can't stand.
Fortunately, one attendee shared all the details of Taylor's chick clique bash with Radar Online.
First off, let's hand out the Drunk Chick of the Night Award. Selena Gomez, stumble on down!
"[Selena] started getting pretty f--ked up," says the source, adding that the singer downed four vodka shots in the span of a few minutes. "She was flirting big time with Nick Jonas."
It seems Selena got so hammered that she started openly bashing Miley Cyrus, and a relatively sober Taylor (who stuck to sipping Ketel One vodka on the rocks) joined in.
"I can't believe I used to be friends with her," Selena reportedly said of Miley. "I should've reached out that night she cut her hair and posted the pic on Twitter."
The insider says the girls even listened to Miley's new album, which reportedly had them "in stitches, doubled over laughing."
From the sound of things, Swift was in a pretty combative mood throughout the night.
The source says she ordered her security guards to keep Ariana and Frankie Grande away from her, and she even snapped at Empire actress Serayah McNeill for taking too many selfies.
But hey, in the end it was all good: Taylor picked up the tab for everyone's drinks, food and transportation home.
Just like every year, the MTV Video Music Awards brought some shocking moments that everyone talks about—sometimes for years. There’s a reason why the VMAs are aired at the end of the summer, and on a Sunday. It’s so people will come into work the next day and gossip about the biggest moments from Top 40’s most famous artists. Since the early beginnings of the VMAs, the loose, almost too casual award show has banked on its relaxed atmosphere to bring on some awkward moments from presenters, performers and guests alike.
This year wasn’t an exception, as feuds were brought to light, awkward jokes were tossed into the ring with abandon, and cultural appropriation ran amok on the red carpet.
Here’s our top five moments that went down at the VMAs.
1. Nicki Minaj calls out Miley Cyrus
If there’s any question that the VMAs open themselves up for candid moments, look no further than Nicki Minaj calling out host Miley Cyrus during her acceptance speech for Best Hip Hop Video. Minaj came for Cyrus, who made comments about her during an interview with The New York Times only days earlier. In the interview, Cyrus said some stuff about Minaj’s Twitter “fight” with Taylor Swift:
“I saw that. I didn’t really get into it. I know there was some beef. I don’t really know. There’s a way to talk to people…What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite. I think there’s a way you speak to people with openness and love.”
When Minaj hit the stage, she took aim at Cyrus, concluding her speech with, “And now…back to..this b—h who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?”
For a split second everyone got a little nervous (and in some cases excited) that there was going to be a fight. Cyrus, who looked visibly anxious said, “Hey, we are all in this industry and we all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate. Nicki, congratuf–kinglations.” Minaj was seen still on stage mouthing, “Don’t mess with me, b—h.”
Sources said that after the public spat they were trying to keep Minaj and Cyrus from crossing paths again because they were worried about another confrontation.
Here’s a clip of the moment:
2. Kanye West announces he’s running for president
During Kanye West’s Video Vanguard Award acceptance speech, which was presented to him by his old VMA rival Taylor Swift, he announced in a very “mic drop”-worthy moment that he was running for president in 2020. At the end of his 12-minute speech West said, “And, yes, as you probably could have guessed in this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
Whether he was trolling or completely serious, we’ll never know, but either way people exploded with reactions on Twitter.
when Kanye becomes president, every wing of the White House will be the West Wing

The post VMAs: Five Shocking Moments We’re Still Talking About appeared first on PopCrunch.
It would be a massive understatement to say that Miley Cyrus has been busy lately.
And yet somehow, she still found time to smear her face in various viscous fluids and film it.
Miley capped off last night's insane spectacle by debuting her new single, "Dooo It!"
Just moments later, a video for the song, which features one long close up of Miley's mouth covered in all manner of goo, appeared on YouTube.
We're guessing a more polished video will be released at some point, but we're talking about Miley here, so who knows?
She might have taken one look at the scene where she spits out sparkly slime in reverse and said, "Got it! Let's go smoke 18 blunts."
As a human being with functioning eyes and or ears, you're probably already aware that Miley Cyrus hosted the VMAs last night, and she was every bit as outrageous and divisive as we had hoped.
As expected, some hated on Miley, while others loved every minute of her manic pixie show.
But regardless of your own feelings on last night's spectacle, you've got to admit that it's impressive that the girl still had energy left to stir up more drama this morning.
Miley criticized Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" video earlier this month, and now she's at it again in a newly-released portion of her recent interview with The New York Times:
“I’m not trying to be in the squad,” Miley said when asked about Taylor. “None of my friends are famous and not because of any other reason than I just like real people who are living real lives, because I’m inspired by them.”
A subtle shot, but a shot nonetheless.
Miley went on to describe Taylor's crew as a collective of "musicians, actresses, models, entrepreneurs," before reiterating that she prefers the company of "real" people.
To recap: in the past 24 hours, Miley Cyrus has hosted the VMAs, released a surprise album, and perpetuated feuds with two of the biggest names in music.
She can't stop; she won't stop.
