Miley Cyrus was Living Her Best Life at the VMAs After Liam Hemsworth Filed for Divorce
Miley Cyrus has been doing her, as the kids would say, after her split from husband Liam Hemsworth last month—and by that I mean, she’s been seen out canoodling and cavorting with Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner’s ex soon-to-be ex-wife in addition to getting a new tattoo.
How do I know this? Am I secretly a Miley super fan? No friends, if I’m going for any tween-star from yesteryear who once played a popstar with a secret identity, it’s Lizzie Maguire all day, every day. I do, however, like to put on “We Can’t Stop” when I’ve had a few. It’s a good party jam.
That said, I am someone who’s mildly, nay, moderately interested in messy post-divorce gossip, so Miley fits the bill nicely.
Friends, Miley Cyrus is doing exactly what Candi Staton told us all to do, forty plus years ago. As a reminder:
Well, Miley is certainly running free at present, and is alleged to be currently living with Carter in Los Angeles. I’ll let People.com explain:
Since their return from Italy, a source told PEOPLE that the newly single ladies are “staying together” in Los Angeles.
“Miley is very close with Kaitlynn. It’s romantic, but also a friendship,” the insider said. “They are both going through similar stuff right now and are bonding over it.”
Kaitlynn was also spotted backstage at the VMAs supporting Cyrus during her performance.
Here’s some more gossip, courtesy of Eonline: After the VMAs, Miley and Kaitlynn were spotted at the same afterparty as Kaitlynn’s ex, Brody Jenner, who was there with his new girlfriend. Unfortunately this is real life, and not Real Housewives, so nothing messy happened. At least nothing messy is getting reported to have happened. Oh well, you can’t win em all, can you?
In case you missed it, here’s Miley’s VMA performance, so you can get the full picture of that night, even though you probably weren’t there. Don’t be sad, I wasn’t either!:
In addition to hanging out with Carter, Miley’s post-split life included getting a new tattoo in the form of lyrics from a Pixies song, who People (incorrectly, I might add) referred to as the Pixies.
“My head was feeling scared, but my heart was feeling free,” reads the tattoo — a lyric from the Pixies’ song “The Thing” — which was done by celebrity tattoo artist Winter Stone.
You can see the tattoo at the artist’s Instagram, below:
I’m not really a tattoo person, so I can’t tell you anything technical about the tattoo, other than the fact it makes me grateful I’m not a tattoo artist because just thinking about inking something permanently on someone else, and all the ways you could bone it up by spelling something wrong, or mucking up the font stresses me out in a way I cannot describe, friends. I feel the same way about being a train conductor, too, but I digress…
Anyway, if you’re wondering what Liam Hemsworth is thinking about all of this (reminder: he, well, his lawyers filed for divorce last week), you’re out of luck. He’s not posted anything on his Instagram since he announced the split with Miley, so clearly, he’s ceased to exist until he begins posting via social media channels once more. That’s just science.
