Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Announce Split

Around Christmas of last year, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth got married in a secret ceremony in Franklin, Tennessee with a small gathering of family and friends in attendance. Less than a year later, the couple have announced their separation. A statement from Cyrus’ rep was released soon after, saying, “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.” 

During this time of emotional turmoil, Cyrus turned to music to help her through it, releasing a very intimate picture of heartbreak with her unexpectedly beautiful new single, “Slide Away”.

Celebrities Join Boycott of Equinox and SoulCycle

After news broke last week that Stephen Ross, the billionaire chairman of the company that owns Equinox and SoulCycle, was hosting a high-dollar fundraiser for Donald Trump at his personal home, both fitness boutiques were hit with international boycotts. Ross defended his position, saying he has known the US president for 40 years and has “never been bashful about expressing” opinions that differ from his.

While Ross claims to be a champion of “racial equality, inclusion, diversity, public education, and environmental sustainability”, critics were skeptical of his position, given his monetary support of Trump. Many celebrities, like Chrissy Teigen and Sophia Bush, joined the cause by cancelling their memberships to Equinox and SoulCycle while encouraging fans to do the same.
