Fans think Miley Cyrus wrote 'Don't Call Me Angel' about Liam Hemsworth
Miley Cyrus' fans still seem to want answers about the end of her marriage to Liam Hemsworth. They made that clear on Friday, Sept. 13, after Miley released "Don't Call Me Angel," a collaboration with Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey. According to People, it took just a few hours after the track was unveiled for fans to start posting theories on Twitter that the lyrics represent some kind of subtle shade towards Miley's ex. "Don't call me angel when I'm a mess," Miley utters at the beginning of the song. "Don't call me angel when I get undressed / You know I don't like that, boy / Do I need to say it again? / You better stop the sweet talk and keep your pretty mouth shut," she continues. Going back through old posts and interviews, fans pointed to things like an Instagram caption written by Liam in which he calls Miley his "sweet little angel" and a video from January that shows him thanking Miley as he tells her, "you are a sweet, sweet angel." Others suggested the man Miley squares off against in a boxing ring in the video for the song looks vaguely like Liam. People, meanwhile, points out that the new Charlie's Angels movie is using "Don't Call Me Angel" as its theme — and Miley, Ariana and Lana announced they were collaborating long before before Miley and Liam went public with their split, making Liam's "angel" mentions seem coincidental.

Why the Internet has decided Rihanna is pregnant
To quote Taylor Swift, "you need to calm down." That's directed at the the boatloads of Twitter and Instagram users who have decided Rihanna is expecting her first child. The pregnancy rumor kicked in shortly after Essence shared a short video interview with the singer before her annual Diamond Ball gala on Thursday, Sept. 12, in which she uttered the phrase, "I'm going to give birth" in a context that was clearly not a pregnancy announcement. She was actually making a moving statement about what being a black woman means to her. "I'm a black woman. I come from a black woman who came from a black woman who came from a black woman, and I'm going to give birth to a black woman," RiRi told Essence. "It's a no-brainer. That's who I am. It's the core of who I am in spirit and in DNA. And I always stand up for who I believe in and who I love and who I know and who I respect," she continued. She went on to talk about how her mother's strength and ability to navigate life's challenges inspired her to do the same, giving props to her grandmother for passing down similar attributes. According to E! News, the video quickly went viral — and mentions of Rihanna's alleged pregnancy began trending on Twitter. "I found out Rihanna is pregnant and I've cancelled my appearance at school today," one fan tweeted. Another posted, "Rihanna is pregnant. This is a lot to take in right now." Rihanna has been dating Hassan Jameel since 2017 and as E! points out, she told Interview magazine recently that she wants to be a mother "more than anything in my life." On Thursday night, however, she was spotted drinking champagne at her gala, which seems to confirm she's not pregnant and was simply feeling inspired about being part of a long line of strong, beautiful black women. "We're impeccable," she told Essence. "We are impeccable. We're special and the world is just going to have to deal with that."

Kylie Jenner says Travis Scott reminds her 'motherhood and sexuality can coexist'
Kylie Jenner had a safety net in place when she agreed to pose for an eight-page cover spread in the new issue of Playboy. That safety net was her boyfriend, Travis Scott. "I never thought that I would pose for Playboy, but I love the new covers," she tells him in the accompanying cover story (via Page Six). "I love what Playboy is doing right now creatively, and when you presented me with the idea — that you would be behind the cover and creative direction and be in control of the images — I thought it was a perfect fit, because I trust you and your vision." Much of the feature is devoted to Kylie talking about what makes her relationship with Travis tick. A key part of that seems to be his ability to make her feel sexy in the wake of their daughter Stormi's birth. She said the rapper reminds her that "motherhood and sexuality can coexist, and just because you embrace your sexuality doesn't mean you have loose morals or you're not a good mother … You can be sexy and still be a badass mom." They share a lot of things beyond Stormi, too, according to the cosmetics CEO. "We think the same and have the same goals and passions in life," she says. "Besides the fact that we have good chemistry, we have a lot of fun together."
Christie Brinkley shows off her gorgeous figure as she heads into a rehearsal for 'DWTS'
Christie Brinkley and her ageless gams were spotted heading into the "Dancing With the Stars" studio on Thursday, Sept. 12, for a rehearsal ahead of Monday's Season 28 premiere. Decked out in hot pants and a tight top, the 65-year-old supermodel looked stunning, as usual, when she flashed a bright smile for the paparazzi in the parking lot outside. Speaking to Hollywood Life about her "DWTS" debut earlier this week, she admitted that she has the same issues with aches and pains as any other woman her age, but said she finds staying active is "key" is to maintaining a bod that can withstand something as intense as the show. "I think that a lot of women reach 65 and they kind of go … well, my hip hurts, my knee hurts or whatever. So do mine!" she said. "But I'm not going to let that stop me! I realize that moving, keeping moving, and greasing the joints — that's the key to everything continuing to work." Christie's one of 12 contestants on "Dancing" this season, alongside celebs including James Van Der Beek, Sean Spicer and Lamar Odom.
Cara Delevingne says she 'never really trusted people' before Ashley Benson
The romance between Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson looks more and more like a fairytale ever since they finally confirmed their love during Pride in June. The latest example comes via NET-A-PORTER's digital magazine, Porter, which features a candid new interview with Cara in which she opens up about what makes Ashley so special to her. "I'd never truly let anyone in before, for fear of them leaving," says Cara, who met Ashley on the set of the 2018 film, "Her Smell" (via the Daily Mail). "I never really trusted people, or felt worthy of it, and I always pushed them away. She's the first person that has said: 'You can't push me away. I'm going to be nice to you, I love you.' I'm just like, wait, so all I have to do is just let you be nice to me? Why have I never done that before?" she continued. Between her modeling work and her new role in "Carnival Row," Cara's busy schedule means lots of time away from Ashley, but she tells Porter the two "make it work" in spite of the challenge. "We have to. And it definitely makes me a better, happier person," she explains. Cara also reflected on previous romantic experiences, saying she wasn't always attracted solely to women. "I loved men from when I was very young. I fell in love with my sports teacher at five. He married my other sports teacher, and I cried for weeks," she recalls. "I had a boyfriend for four years and then he left, and I got with his best friend. But continuously, over and over again, I was hurt by men. Not that that's why I became gay," she adds. Finally, the Porter feature tackles how Cara's openness about her sexuality affects her in the public sphere, from Harvey Weinstein's early advice that she pretend she's straight if she wants to "make it in this industry" to her hatred of labeling herself, sexually, when she feels she "changes every day."
Bethenny Frankel posts sweet anniversary message to boyfriend, Paul Bernon
Bethenny Frankel and her boyfriend Paul Bernon are celebrating their one-year anniversary this week. "Having such a supportive and loving partner makes me a better person & inspires me to achieve the impossible," Bethenny wrote to Paul in a sweet post on Instagram on Thursday, Sept. 12. "Happy Anniversary! I love you and thank you for the most beautiful year!" she added. The "Real Housewives of New York City" alum started dating Paul, a film producer and real estate developer, last fall. They were hit with marriage rumors last month after Bethenny tweeted to her longtime "RHONY" costars that she's "the only one who is actually married." She was referring not to Paul but to her ex, Jason Hoppy, and their drawn-out divorce and custody proceedings.
Kanye West's new Yeezy Foam Runners garner Crocs comparisons
Kanye West is getting ready to release a new Yeezy design, the Foam Runner, in 2020 — and it's already being trashed on social media. Featured in a photo published by The Face magazine, the Foam Runners are white, slip-on shoes in the Yeezy brand's go-to, aerodynamic shape. They have perforated holes running along the sides and near the top in a wave-like pattern, however, and that's the feature that's already gotten them branded "overpiced Crocs" by more than a few Twitter and Instagram users. "These new Yeezy's look like crocs that went to private school," joked one user (via Cosmopolitan). "I said this a while back but at this point, Kanye is just doing things to show that he can do them. He made dad shoes cool and now he's gonna make crocs cool," wrote another, who added, "No one man should have all that power." A third noted, "I didn't think that anything could be uglier than Crocs, but I was wrong," and tacked on a "#YeezyCrocs" hash tag. No word yet on the specific price for the shoes, but JustJared reports they'll retail at an "affordable price point." Most Yeezys have started around $300, with higher prices in resale markets.
Kim Kardashian West: CBD 'saved my life'
Kim Kardashian West rarely drink and she does not smoke pot. One thing she swears by, however, is CBD, or cannabidiol, a chemical in the cannabis plant that causes a sense of relaxation without the high a user would get from ingesting the whole plant in some form. People checked in with the mother of four this week, asking how she balances being a mom, running all of her businesses and starring on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." "How do I do it all? It is exhausting. I just say CBD," she replied, laughing. "But I do. It's gotten me through a lot." She went on to say that she's "not a weed smoker at all," but found "a few months ago that CBD was a huge help. "It's saved my life. Even to sleep at night. I like the gummies. I will just use a little bit and fall asleep," she said. "I don't think I would take a Xanax or an Ambien again."
Kristin Cavallari has not watched 'The Hills: New Beginnings'
Back in June, The Wrap reported "The Hills: New Beginnings" was the "second most watched cable premiere among young adults in 2019." "Hills" OG star Kristen Cavallari, however, has yet to see even one episode. "I haven't seen it and I hate saying that," she told Page Six this week. "I really want to see it. I haven't seen a TV show in months. I can't tell you the last TV show I saw," she added, telling the outlet she could only watch the show after her children are in bed anyway. In the meantime, Kristen's had her hands full with her own reality show — as well as the backlash she faced this week after a " tone-deaf " post showed up on Instagram on Sept. 11.
