Miley Cyrus just stopped following fiancé Liam Hemsworth on Twitter, renewing speculation that the couple is finally headed for a split. Miley's move on Saturday comes on the heels of the latest rumors linking Liam to January Jones. Cyrus' racy VMA performance apparently didn't sit well with her honey Hemsworth either, according to E! News on Sept. 14. Meanwhile, Miley's latest "Wrecking Ball" is poised to hit number one, proving perhaps once again that scandal reaps rewards.
Miley Cyrus, 20, and her 23-year-old fiancé Liam Hemsworth have had troubles for awhile now, going back to the first January Jones rumors.
Liam and the 35-year-old "Mad Men" bombshell were first photographed together leaving West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont on Feb. 23, according to Us Weekly.
Hemsworth has spent large amounts of time out of the country and away from the woman he's supposed to be in love with and marrying. Reps for both he and Jones denied the rumors linking them romantically.
Then Liam was reported to be mortified by Miley's recent twerking VMA performance, when she grinded on Robin Thicke during a "Blurred Lines" duet.
Now she's apparently under his skin again with her just released "Wrecking Ball" video, in which she spends much of her screen time buck-a** naked.
Through part of the video, Miley is scantily clad in a two piece outfit reminiscent of her VMA twerking costume. In the rest of it, she's wearing nothing but a pair of boots as she straddles an actual wrecking ball.
You can see most of her breast, as she carefully manages to just shield her nipple from view. She also performs some suggestive moves with a sledge hammer, even licking it at one point.
According to Billboard, industry sources say "Wrecking Ball" could sell more than 400,000 downloads for the tracking week ending Sunday, Sept. 15.
Combining the sales projections and taking building Neilson BDS data for airplay and streaming and then projecting chart points out over a full week, "Ball" is poised to swing its way to a fairly sizable lead over Katy Perry's "Roar" and take over at the top of next week's chart.
As of Sunday, the video has been viewed over 97 million times on YouTube, and it's the first thing that pops up in the drop down as soon as you type in just the letter "W".
And thanks to the huge streaming totals for the song's video, early indications are that it should dethrone Perry's "Roar," and blast to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. This would mark Miley Cyrus' first number one hit.
Interesting that it comes on the heels of her outrageous VMA performance, and that she followed that up with the racy video for the new song.
Miley may be a lot of things, but stupid ain't one of them. It's now become ingrained in today's pop culture that most of the time, bad behavior gets rewarded. Think reality TV.
So as Cyrus is about to rack up her first number one, did she do so at the expense of her relationship with Liam?
