It's not often I find myself feeling legitimately sorry for a 20-year-old multimillionaire, but I actually feel kind of bad for Miley Cyrus right now, what with the rampant rumors of a split with fiancé Liam Hemsworth. On the one hand, Miley's been a gossip goldmine for years, so she's definitely used to this kind of thing ... on the other hand, she's probably pretty damn sick of it, too.
All the poor girl has to do is leave the house without her engagement ring and suddenly OH MY GOD THE WEDDING IS OFF!!
That's what happened late Wednesday night when Miley was photographed leaving a recording studio, trying to hide her face from the cameras with her hands. Within nanoseconds, the world was freaking out: Neither of the two rings she was wearing on her engagement finger were the ring Hemsworth gave her when he proposed!
Never mind the fact that Miley slammed the breakup rumors on Twitter just hours before.
"I am so sick of La," Miley tweeted. "And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn't call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining"
I'm sure it is draining. Yes, that's the price you pay for being rich and famous, I guess, but Miley Cyrus was too young when she skyrocketed to pop stardom to know what she was really getting into. So now she's 20, just trying to experiment with new hairdos and have a relationship and do Pilates and stuff, and everybody's still all up in her business.
Who knows if Cyrus and Hemsworth really will get married -- they're sooooo young! But this kind of relentless scrutiny won't help either way. Maybe they should leave L.A. for a while -- Miley definitely ounds ready for a sabbatical.
Do you think Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are really splitting up?
