Joaquin Phoenix looks a little worse for wear while out and about with his girlfriend Heather Christie in Venice
I wish that Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus would just come out and tell everyone they’re over – so we can quit speculating. There are lots of sources that are coming forward saying that the couple is over….but until we hear it from the horses mouth, it’s hard to know if it’s true or not. If I were a betting woman, I’d put $$ on them being over. After he was spotted getting into a car with January Jones, Liam headed off to Australia, where he’s blowing off steam – without Miley.
Here’s this morning’s report from Page Six:
Miley Cyrus has split with her fiancé, “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth, multiple sources tell Page Six. Hemsworth has jetted off to his native Australia because, we are told, “He needed to get away from Los Angeles and spend some time with his brother and friends.”
One source said, “Miley and Liam are done; it’s over. She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild. It became a problem for him.”
Another source added, “They have broken up before, and are broken up again now. There was drama because she suspected he had a wandering eye. And she recently tweeted a denial that he cheated.
“While Miley has insisted they are still together, right now they are very, very much apart,” the insider said.
Hemsworth, 23, has been spotted Down Under with his “Thor” star brother, Chris Hemsworth, sister-in-law Elsa Pataky and niece India Rose.
Meanwhile, days ago, former “Hannah Montana” star Cyrus was photographed outside an LA recording studio without her engagement ring. She’s been trying for a big career comeback with her fourth album, working with collaborators including Dr. Luke and Pharrell Williams.
Amid rumors of a split, Cyrus tweeted on March 6, “I am so sick of La. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn’t call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining.” She also wrote that her new album will “shut everyone up.”
Cyrus and Hemsworth became engaged last May when he presented her with a 3.5-carat diamond ring. But recently rumors have swirled that they’re going through a rough patch. Another source added, “Miley is a fiery character, and they do fight, but she is crazy about Liam. She isn’t ready to accept it might be over for good.” Reps for Cyrus and Hemsworth didn’t get back to us last night.
I can totally see that Miley’s partying would be too much for Liam. She’s 20-years-old, she’s just getting started! I got married young, and I know how hard that can be….and I was 22! I can’t imagine marrying at 20. It’s just way too young to commit to something like marriage, especially if you’re a celebrity.

I knew it! No wonder there’s such a huge rush to get married! They’re waiting to have sex! I was raised Baptist, and so I definitely understand the waiting for marriage thing, but I do think it can be tricky. There IS such a thing as people being sexually incompatible. I think sleeping around is wrong – and hurts people, ultimately, but waiting for marriage is hard too. It’s a very fine line, I guess.
Millions watched their romantic proposal in Thailand – and now The Bachelor’s newly engaged Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici can finally proclaim their love to the world.
“I’m just so excited that the secret is out,” Lowe tells PEOPLE.
Adds Giudici: “Now, we can be a normal couple and hold hands in public!”
Hold hands they will, but Lowe and Giudici have vowed to save being intimate until after the wedding.
“From my perspective, I’ve lived life kind of selfishly for a long time,” says Lowe, a conservative Christian and born-again virgin. “Now, I’m going to try to live it the way I know to be right.”
As for his bride-to-be’s feelings on the topic? “I honor him,” she says.
The pair, who announced they will tie the knot on a televised special for ABC, most likely don’t have too long of a wait, though.
“I’m a guy. I’d go to the courthouse tomorrow if she’d let me,” says Lowe. “We just fit so well together. We both know it’s right.”
So yeah, this wedding thing is probably going to happen very, very quickly.
On Saturday night I had the HUUUUGE pleasure of checking out the Ryan Montbleau band in Portland, Oregon, at the Wonder Ballroom! I had heard about Ryan for years through a family member, and when he came to town, I knew I was going to have to see this guy live to see what all the hype was about!
I literally showed up – not knowing WHAT I was getting myself into. I thought he would be Bluegrassy (I know, it’s not a word), and I wasn’t sure how I felt about that. What I didn’t expect was to LOVE them as much as I did! I absolutely LOVED them! The entire band was absolutely AMAZING. They each were at the top of their game. I found myself dancing to the music, watching them in awe! Amazing!
After the show was over, we actually got a chance to meet Ryan, and he was so great in person. Most of the time when you meet singers – or celebrities – they are just DYING to get away from you. But Ryan was so cool, so laid back, he could have talked to us for hours (picture below). We just had a really great night. It was incredibly fun!!
Songs for Ryan Montbleau typically need to simmer. In his 10-year career this gifted singer and his limber band have built their catalog the old-fashioned way, by introducing new songs to their live set, then bending and shaping them over dozens of performances before committing a definitive version to the hard drive.
For that and many other reasons, Montbleau’s next album, For Higher, is quite literally a departure. Well-established out of his home base in the Northeast, the singer threw himself into New Orleans, where everything is slow-cooked, for a few fast-moving days — and whipped up an instant delicacy.
A few of the cuts on the new album — the playful stomp of “Deadset” or “Head Above Water,” freshly peppered with horns — were already part of the Ryan Montbleau Band’s ever-growing repertoire. But the majority, including four handpicked cover tunes — stone soul nuggets from Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, the late Muscle Shoals guitarist Eddie Hinton and more — came together spontaneously, with little prep work.
Unlike Montbleau’s previous recordings, which showcase his own maturing songcraft, the new album draws a lot of its depth and beauty from its cover songs. Perfectly titled is the beatific “Sweet, Nice and High,” originally recorded by the forgotten soul supergroup Rhinoceros. On the other end of the moodswing, Mayfield’s “Here But I’m Gone,” written and recorded for the great singer’s last album, after the accident that left him paralyzed, is a shimmering testament to human frailty.
“Sometimes I feel like there are so many songs — who the hell needs another song?” Montbleau asks. But then he’ll discover another new inspiration — sitting at the kitchen table sipping tea, there’s a vinyl copy of an old Billy Preston album propped on the windowsill behind him — and another lyric or melody will come to him like a visitation. And when the song becomes a reality, and the crowds begin to sing it back to him, well, that’s what it’s all about.
At 34, he’s a late-bloomer who’s right on time. Montbleau didn’t start singing and playing guitar in earnest until he was in college, at Villanova. Later, working at the House of Blues in Boston, he began playing solo sets there as a warmup act. His band — there’s now six of them — came together naturally, over time, planting strong roots in coffeeshops, folk venues and rock clubs before converting audiences on an outdoor festival circuit that now stretches across the country. Through word of mouth and repeat visits, the band has built a devoted following from the Northeast to Chicago, Seattle and Austin. “It’s like watching the grass grow,” says the easygoing Montbleau.
With a run of solo-acoustic shows around the Northeast now wrapped up, the band will be hitting a few more spots to close out February, and then it’s out to the great West in support of our friends Greensky Bluegrassin March. These guys are excellent and we’re super excited to finally get back out west!
We’re also very excited to announce a run of shows in the midwest and northeast with ALO. If you know this band then you know why we’re so excited. If you don’t, then we’re even more excited for you to hear them. The vibe between our band and theirs is akin to a kin and a kin! Brothers from different mothers. Peas in a pod.
They have SO MANY shows still available on their tour! You guys MUST check them out! GO HERE for the tour schedule!
Check him out!
