Hold on to your butts! Because they're about to get blown off with the sheer magnitude of this celebrity surprise. Twenty-year-old naked construction worker Miley Cyrus and guy-she-literally-hasn't-mentioned-in-months-who-seems-to-spend-most-of-his-time-on-a-different-continent Liam Hemsworth are officially not engaged anymore. Weird. I really thought those two kids were going to make it. Rumors started flying the other day, when Cyrus unfollowed Hemsworth on Twitter (GARSP!!!!), and reps for both stars confirmed the split today.
The news marks the end of a tumultuous year in which Cyrus, 20, and Hemsworth, 23, have experienced more break-ups than bonding moments.
The couple – who first met on the movie set of 2010's The Last Song – got engaged in May 2012. At the time, the singer told PEOPLE, "I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam."
But earlier this year, the pair decided to postpone their wedding.
Cyrus was subsequently seen out without her 3.5-carat Neil Lane engagement ring but soon it was back on her hand and the couple were reunited in July in Canada, where Hemsworth was shooting his new movie Cut Bank, and on the red carpet for his movie Paranoia in August.
Since then the couple seem to have been living separate lives as the "Wrecking Ball" singer continues to plug her album Bangerz and Hemsworth prepares to promote Catching Fire.
Oh man, it's just like this episode of Columbo I watched yesterday, where this lady murdered her brother and made it look like an accident so she could take over the family business and finally have some independence, but then she went all wild 'n' crazy kidz and got a flashy new haircut and started wearing an ugly pink hat to the office, so then her boyfriend Leslie Nielsen was like, "I don't even KNOW YOU ANYMORE, BETH," and then he totally ratted her out to Columbo. Not that Columbo didn't already know she was guilty, because obviously Columbo knows everything. I imagine that's sort of how things went down between Miley and Liam, minus the cold-blooded murder part (AS FAR AS WE KNOW).
And speaking of Miley, apparently Elton John is the Nostradamus of celebrities-acting-weird, and his prediction for everyone is doom, dooooom, DOOOOOOOM!!!
"I look at Miley Cyrus and I see a meltdown waiting to happen. And she's so young!" Johnreportedly told The Australian, which billed the Grammy winner's comments as "advice for candles in the wind"—a reference to John's famed ballad about Marilyn Monroe.
"But," he added, regarding Miley, "she's got two records in the top 20, so who is going to stop her?"
"Maybe it's a British thing, but I can spot a car crash before it happens," John continued. "I was in my dressing room in Las Vegas when they announced that Michael Jackson was playing 50 dates at the O2 [Arena in London]. I turned to my agent and said: 'He won't do a single one of those.'"
"With Gaga—who I love, she's the godmother to our children—I'd like to be able to talk to her right now, but I can't get through to her," he said, though he didn't clarify whether he meant literally or figuratively.
