People Are Asking Miley Cyrus To Make Major Life Decisions For Them On TikTok

Miley Cyrus is helping people make major life decisions on TikTok

TikTok is awesome, but also like, super weird right? We can all agree that a dog named Bunny who talks and teenagers who are millioniares for dancing on TikTok is odd, but the newest wild TikTok trend is that people are daring themselves (?) to do silly stuff and make major life decisions — like whether or not to get married — if, and only if, Miley Cyrus responds on their video.

To participate, you write something like “I’ll go skydiving is Miley Cyrus comments,” and then wait and see if she does. And weirdly, she does. Like, a lot. Cyrus really is just sitting around scrolling through TikTok.

The trend seemed to take off two days ago when a couple stated on TikTok that they would get married if Cyrus commented. And she did.

Not only did Cyrus comment, she wrote, “Hope it goes better for you two than it did for me,” which is sweet and also sad, because obviously, she’s referring to her divorce from Liam Hemsworth.

After this, everyone started to pile on, asking Miley to comment on life choices from getting tattoos to talking to their crush.

“If Miley comments I’ll get whatever tattoo she says,” one woman wrote, to which Cyrus responded, “How about the time and place of our first date?” Cyrus is a flirt, y’all.

This girl promised to dye her hair and talk to her crush and Miley asked what the crush’s name was.

Comments By Celebs compiled a ton of Cyrus’s responses and honestly most people just wanted to know how Cyrus was so quick to find and respond to all these videos.

One girl actually asked Cyrus point-blank why she has so much free time on her hands to which Cyrus simply wrote, “QUARANTINE.”

Then, the pièce de résistance, E! Online tried to get in on the action and posted on Instagram, “If Miley Cyrus comments on this we’ll change our Instagram bio to whatever she wants,” to which Cyrus wrote, “We’re sorry for all the sh*t we said about Miley Cyrus.”

Dear reader? They did it. E! changed its Instagram bio to read: “We’re sorry for all the sh*t we said about Miley Cyrus.”

E! Instagram

Never change Miley.

George Clooney Teaches Kimmel The Flowbee Haircut He’s Been Doing For Decades

Clooney has apparently been cutting his own hair for 25 years

George Clooney is an ’80s Jedi Master of haircuts and went to great lengths to prove it during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The actor, who was recently named one of PEOPLE’s 2020 People of the Year, recently revealed during an interview with CBS This Morning that he’s been cutting his hair with the 1980s Flowbee device “for 25 years.” If you are unfamiliar, the Flowbee was all the rage on ’80s informercials and is essentially a powered vacuum cleaner attachment made for cutting hair. But who knew one of the most successful actors in the world still uses it to cut his own hair?

Clooney told CBS correspondent Tracy Smith during the interview that cutting hair isn’t just a quarantine thing. “I’ve been cutting my own hair for 25 years,” he said, to which Smith asked, “So, it has nothing to do with quarantine?”

“Nah. Look, my hair’s, like really like straw, you know? And it’s so easy to cut. You can’t really make too many mistakes. So years ago I bought a thing called a Flowbee,” which obviously Smith, like the rest of us, could not believe.

After admitting his grooming secret to the world, Kimmel requested Clooney come on his show to prove he was actually a champion hair cutter. “You turn the vacuum on. You turn the buzzer on. You go to town, like this on your hair,” Clooney said as he started to drag the Flowbee across his head.

Kimmel, always up for anything, joined in and tried cutting his own hair with the Flowbee as well, but he couldn’t quite keep up with Clooney. “You do it that fast?” he asked the Oceans Eleven actor.

“Can’t hear ya, I’m Flowbeeing!” Clooney clapped back.

“People who have assistants shouldn’t be Flowbeeing their hair!” Kimmel joked, to which Clooney replied, “Well, I got her to Flowbee my hair for me. I don’t do it myself, my god. That’s cheap!”

The entire interview wasn’t solely based around the Flowbee (though, if it was that would’ve been OK). Clooney also filled the virtual audience in on his 3-year-old twins speaking Italian, turning his office into a nursery, and his new movie The Midnight Sky. He also said he’s become quite the homemaker during quarantine, cutting hair and cooking for his family.

Clooney also offered some solid advice to eTalk. The Casamigos owner made sure everyone knew Flowbeeing and drinking to not mix. “Don’t drink and Flow” he said.

Clooney is a man of many talents and, I for one, love him even more knowing he bought into all those ’80s infomercials like the rest of us (I’m taking to you, ThighMaster).

‘TIME’ Names Teen Inventor First-Ever ‘Kid Of The Year’

A 15-year-old scientist and inventor has been named Time magazine’s first “Kid of the Year”

Gitanjali Rao, from Denver, Colorado, has been chosen as TIME Magazine‘s first-ever “Kid of the Year.” Rao invented several technologies spanning different fields, including a device that can identify lead in drinking water, and an app and Chrome extension that uses artificial intelligence to detect cyberbullying.

TIME announced the award Thursday, crediting Rao’s ability to apply scientific ideas to real-world problems and her desire to motivate other kids to take up their own causes as the reason they chose her. She was chosen from a field of 5,000 US-based nominees and five finalists.

In a Zoom interview for TIME conducted by none other than Angelina Jolie, Rao explained her scientific process: “Observe, brainstorm, research, build and communicate.”

Rao was placed on the famous Forbes 30 under 30 list last year after she responded to the Flint, Michigan water crisis by creating a device named Tehys, which uses carbon nanotube sensors to detect lead in water. She went on to collaborate with scientists in the water industry to try to get the device on the market.

More recently, Rao has developed a phone and internet tool called Kindly, which uses artificial intelligence technology to detect possible signs of cyberbullying aimed for kids.

“You type in a word or phrase, and it’s able to pick it up if it’s bullying, and it gives you the option to edit it or send it the way it is,” Rao tells TIME. “The goal is not to punish. As a teenager, I know teenagers tend to lash out sometimes. Instead, it gives you the chance to rethink what you’re saying so that you know what to do next time around.”

Rao tells Jolie that she hopes she shifts the societal perspective of what a scientist looks like, or can look like. “I don’t look like your typical scientist,” she said. “Everything I see on TV is that it’s an older, usually white, man as a scientist. My goal has really shifted, not only from creating my own devices to solve the world’s problems, but inspiring others to do the same as well. Because, from personal experience, it’s not easy when you don’t see anyone else like you. So I really want to put out that message: If I can do it, you can do it, and anyone can do it.”

Someone give this girl ALL THE AWARDS. She is undeniably paving the way for a seismic shift in not only what scientists look like, but she exemplifies the value we need to place on newer generations and their contributions to the field.

TIME will choose its Person of the Year next year. In 2019, Greta Thunberg was awarded the honor, becoming the youngest person to win the award at just 16 years old.

Dan Levy Thinks Every Dad Should Be As Supportive As Eugene Levy

Dan Levy shares how his father Eugene Levy’s support has affected him

Dan Levy and Eugene Levy are the best father-son duo around. Full stop. The Canadian twosome is so adorable in their little suits and their signature glasses and their unwavering support for one another, it’s impossible not to love the stars and creators of Schitt’s Creek. To commemorate the news that Entertainment Weekly named the two of them 2020’s “entertainers of the year,” they released a sweet five-minute video of the pair palling around and generally gushing over how supportive of a relationship they have.

It’s clear that the two have a solid relationship and friendship, though Dan jokes, “its not an enmeshment situation,” and Eugene laughs, “I don’t finish every conversation with, ‘Love you!'” However, Dan made it clear that the strength of their bond is thanks to Eugene’s constant and unconditional support.

“I’ve never had to prove myself, I’ve never had to explain myself,” Dan said. “And that, I feel like, fundamentally is the support that every father needs to give their son. Particularly, fathers and sons where the son is a gay or queer person.”

When the Levy’s took home all the statues at the 2020 Emmy Awards, that unwavering support was on full display. As Dan and Eugene both accepted the award for Outstanding Comedy Series, Dan stood by, nearly in tears, as his father spoke so highly and so beautifully about his son’s work in creating the hit show.

“I want to thank this young man, who took our fish out of water story about the Rose family and transformed it into a celebration of inclusivity, a castigation of homophobia, and a declaration of the power of love,” Eugene said of his son.

Elsewhere in the EW video, the Levys joked that Eugene was maybe a little too supportive when it came time to film.

“Except you being at the monitors all the time watching us, Sarah and I, mouthing the words along like a stage parent,” Dan joked of how his dad would hover near his scenes with Sarah Levy, another Levy sibling and the woman who brought Twyla Sands to life.

“Well, other than that though… it was very professional,” Eugene said with a laugh.

At the end of the video, after five-plus minutes of the Levy men being the best, Eugene deadpans to camera: “Well, now that the show’s over, we’re not getting along at all.”

We want more Levy family content! And more dads like Eugene Levy, because who knows, if you parent like Eugene Levy you might raise an Emmy-winning star and creator of everyone’s favorite TV show.

Kelly Clarkson Opens Up About Her Divorce: ‘This Isn’t Happiness’

Kelly Clarkson opens up about leaving her marriage for her kids

Kelly Clarkson has been going through a very public divorce from her now estranged husband Brandon Blackstock and while Clarkson has been relatively quiet on the subject as her custody proceedings are plastered across TMZ, Clarkson finally opened up about the split to author Glennon Doyle during a recent episode of the singer’s talk show and said that the main motivator for leaving her marriage was fearing the effect that staying married would have on her children.

Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June after seven years of marriage and told her talk show audience in September that she’ll reveal more about the breakup when she feels comfortable. “So I’m usually very open and I usually talk about everything but in this case I will talk a little bit here and there about how it affects me personally, but probably won’t go too far into it…” Clarkson said at the time.

On December 1, 2020 Clarkson opened up in a big way with Doyle — who has written books about her divorce — and said that the breakup has been “horrible.”

“There are so many hard parts,” Clarkson said. “The hardest for me is the kids…I think, as women especially, we’re trained to take it all on and deal with it and you’re fine. But it’s your babies that you worry about.”

Doyle agreed, saying the hardest part of going through a divorce is “always the kids.”

“We’re trained to believe to avoid at all costs a broken family,” Doyle told Clarkson and shared that she “stayed” in her marriage “for her daughter,” before realizing what message she was sending to her daughter in doing that.

“We’ve all been trained to believe a good mother is a liar,” Doyle continued. “I didn’t leave a marriage in spite of being a good mother; I left because I am a good mother. A good mother is a model, not a martyr.”

This line — “A good mother is a model, not a martyr” — resonated deeply with Clarkson.

“That’s what I needed to see to make a step in my own life,” Clarkson said. “This isn’t happiness, and we both deserve better. That line so hit home for me: I don’t want this for everyone in this scenario right now.”

Clarkson was recently awarded primary physical custody of her and Blackstock’s two children, who she said  are her only priority right now. “We know the best thing here is to protect our children and their little hearts,” Clarkson shared back in September. “I’m a mama bear and my kids come first.”

Ashley Graham Shares The Most Glam Pumping Vid To Ever Exist

Ashley Graham somehow makes pumping breastmilk look like something that belongs on a runway

Bet you had no idea you’d wake up today and discover that someone’s made the arduous task of pumping breastmilk look beyond glam. We didn’t either but we’re very here for Ashley Graham making pumping look like an activity that belongs on the most high-fashion runways. Breastfeeding but make it supermodel.

“17 packs of hair on my head (yes it was as heavy as you could imagine!) and two 20 min pump session- Multitasking at its finest,” she captions the series of videos and one photo.

Graham showed the world exactly how sexy one can look while hooked up to a milk-sucking machine and honestly, I feel slightly attacked. Don’t get me wrong, I am 100 percent supportive of this woman looking stunningly gorgeous while filling those bottles, but let’s just say I was uhhh not so put-together back in my pumping days. My usual attire was one of my husband’s ratty undershirts (now covered in milk stains) and a pair of maternity yoga pants. Probably featuring a crotch hole or two.

This isn’t the first time Graham has wowed us with her ability to seriously multitask. Ever since giving birth to her adorable baby boy Isaac, she’s shown us over and over that breastfeeding can be glam.

Like, so glam.

And even when she’s not getting ready for a fashion show, she still manages to make it look adorable.

Ever since announcing her pregnancy, it seems Graham’s been on a one-woman mission to normalize all kinds of motherhood experiences from stretch marks to breastfeeding in public to starting up workouts again after having a baby. It’s amazing to see such a high-profile momma using her platform to show the world what us moms are up to — and that it’s all totally normal.

“I’ve never been embarrassed about pumping or breastfeeding,” Graham told TODAY earlier this year. “To me, my boobs seem like elbows at this point. If it was socially acceptable, I’d do it anywhere, any time, but I respect that it can make people uncomfortable and I realize there’s a time and place for everything. I’ve had to normalize breastfeeding even to my own mom, because it simply wasn’t something she did with us.”

Bless Ashley Graham for helping to normalize it for the rest of us.

Hilarious Dating Site Ad By Ryan Reynolds Perfectly Sums Up 2020

The must-see Match.com commercial is also set to the tune of Taylor Swift’s first re-recorded song

One of the very, very few funny things about 2020 is how Ryan Reynolds has depicted it in a new ad for Match.com. His production company, Maximum Effort, just released a commercial that perfectly captures the essence of 2020. The best part? It’s set to the tune of Taylor Swift’s first re-recorded song from her old catalog: “Love Story.”

The tagline is “A match made in hell is still a match.” LOL. Honestly this year has set the bar to the floor for most things, so that tracks. Watch Satan himself find true love with the year 2020. It sounds weird, yes, but trust — it’s brilliant.

The commercial is… strangely cute? Who knew watching Satan use Match.com in Hell to find himself a beautiful lady, aptly named 2020, would be funny? From stealing toilet paper to setting am actual dumpster fire, each of their romantic dates is extremely on-brand. Taylor Swift’s soundtrack honestly adds the perfect touch — and it’s so great to hear her old (but new) songs again, knowing that she has control over them now.

Swift, who is good friends with Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively, posted about the ad on Twitter: “Okay so while my new re-records are NOT done, my friend @VancityReynolds asked me if he could use a snippet of one for a LOLsome commercial he wrote so… here’s a sneak peak of Love Story! Working hard to get the music to you soon!!”

In case any Swifties were wondering if the new versions of her old classics would sound different, or be interpreted differently now that she’s in her thirties, the answer appears to be “no.” They’re the same lovely songs sung in exactly the way we all fell in love with them the first time. Or at least, “Love Song” is.

When asked about this new commercial, Reynolds explained the inspiration behind the ad.

“Match is responsible for bringing millions of people together and even in this dumpster fire of a year, people somehow found love on Match,” he said. “We just imagined what a ‘2020 match’ would look like and this video was the natural, slightly warped result. Also this stuff gives me something to think about during the board meetings.”

Courteney Cox Gloriously Recreated That Iconic Turkey Dance From ‘Friends’

The ‘Friends’ actress gave the people exactly what they wanted this Thanksgiving: the turkey dance

Even if you’ve never watched an episode of Friends in your life (and if you haven’t, are you OK?), you know exactly what the turkey dance is. You’ve seen it in GIFs, in memes, as stills from the hit NBC show. The minute-long scene in Season 5, Episode 8 where Monica dons an entire turkey on her head, and puts on an oversized pair of yellow glasses and a red, hassled-hat atop the uncooked poultry — and Chandler tells her he loves her for the first time — is purely iconic. And, because it’s the year 2020, the actress who played Monica for a staggering 10 seasons, Courteney Cox, did us all a solid and recreated the famous Thanksgiving shimmy.

NBC

Taking to her Instagram, Cox recorded a message for all her Friends fans. “Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you’re having a great day. I’m feeling so thankful,” she starts.

Then, Cox unexpectedly zooms in on her mouth as she aggressively — and hilariously — says, “And also if I get one more goddamn GIF with that turkey on my head dancing like a fucking fool, I’m just gonna snap.”

“Anyway,” Cox continues, “since I’m the symbol of Thanksgiving, here you go. I hope it makes you happy.”

And then this is where the real magic happens: The video cuts to Cox dancing with a sunglasses-wearing turkey on her head as the Friends theme song plays.

The dance aired in the episode titled “The One With the Thanksgiving Flashbacks,” which aired Nov. 19, 1998 — and it’s still, now more than 20 years later, as iconic as ever, even among the cast. “You DID THAT,” her Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe, commented on Cox’s IG video.

The video was also a great reminder of what’s to come for the Friends cast: the Friends HBO Max reunion special, which was delayed for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this month, however, fans got a long-awaited update on the reunion special’s new premiere date: March 2021.

Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March,” Matthew Perry tweeted Nov. 12. “Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that’s the way I like it!”

“This is a show that is not scripted, but this is the way the show works,” Kaufman told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year. “We are going to need a live audience. Even if we socially distance that live audience, it really is a huge part of what ‘Friends’ is. We cannot do it without them.”

Alicia Silverstone Supports Son Getting His Long Hair Cut Short

Alicia Silverstone’s son, Bear, decided to cut his hair two months after she revealed he was the subject of bullying

Because hell hath no fury like a mommy shamer sitting around scrolling social media for someone to bash, Alicia Silverstone has been under fire for the last few years. What is her major sin, according to the parenting police? Allowing her 9-year-old son, Bear, to keep his hair long. Recently, she got thrown some next-level criticism after revealing that her only child was being bullied by other children due to his long locks, and still wouldn’t force him to chop them off. Two months later, the Clueless star has revealed that Bear recently decided on his own that he wanted to cut his hair, and that she supports his decision 100 percent — namely because it was his decision to make.

“Yes, It’s true. Bear cut his hair!! My baby’s growing up,” the 44-year-old captioned a video over the weekend of Bear’s big haircut. “I miss his hair!!!!! Was it his decision? Yes. Did I cry inside as I watched him get it cut? Maybe… but did I try to stop him? Not for one second. The reason he chose to keep it for as long as he did was because he loved it so much!!! He just wanted to try something new. Although I have a feeling he’ll find a way back to his long hair again in the future. No matter what though, I will always support my sweet, caring, and precious little boy in every decision he makes.”

“What are we doing right now?” she asks him in the video.

As he runs his hand through his hair he responds, “Cutting my hair.”

“Why?” she inquires.

Bear admits that he has no idea why (with a smile!).

“Are you nervous about this at all?” she asks him.

“Yes, very,” he responds, adding that he’s also “so excited.”

After the stylists are done working their magic he looks at his new short hairdo in the mirror. Obviously, he likes what he sees, breaking out in a smile.

In September, Silverstone revealed that her son had been the subject of bullying, but that he refused to succumb to it.

“One time my son was made fun of by other kids because of his hair on a bus ride to surf camp. After he had returned and told me, I thought he would want to cut it for a haircut appointment we had already scheduled the next day, but when we showed up, he said, ‘Please give me a trim so I can grow it to my waist.’ That’s my boy! He knows who he is. He loves his hair and chooses to have it long,” she wrote on Instagram, with photos of Bear’s amazingly gorgeous hair — as well as photos of hot celebrity men like Harry Styles, Brad Pitt, and Jason Momoa who have also rocked long hair over the years.

“Mama and Papa aren’t going to stop him from being him. He’s beautiful and we love his hair! We would never impose any social ideas about what hair on a boy or girl should look like. We should all try to embrace our children and who they choose to be without any judgement!”

Hallmark Debuts Their First Christmas Movie With A Gay Couple

“It’s an honor to make a little history,” Jonathan Bennett said

Have you fully recovered from crying your way through the trailer for the star-studded queer Christmas film starring Kristen Stewart and Dan Levy? Great, because Hallmark just debuted a teaser for their first-ever Christmas flick featuring a gay couple in the lead, and it not only looks like a must-watch, but it stars a familiar face from the early aughts.

Joining Hulu (where Stewart’s Happiest Season will premiere) and Lifetime (which also announced its first-ever holiday film, The Christmas Setup, to not only feature an LGBTQ love story, but also a gay couple in the lead), Hallmark is set to release The Christmas House on Nov. 22, starring Mean Girls‘ Jonathan Bennett and Brad Harder. The Christmas House follows an admittedly shameful year for Hallmark whose 2019 holiday films featured zero same-sex couples (no, really — none).

“Representation is so important, and to represent this storyline on Hallmark Channel, it’s an honor to make a little history,” Bennett told Entertainment Tonight this week.

The Christmas House follows brothers Mike Mitchell (played by One Tree Hill‘s Robert Buckley) and Brandon’s (Bennett) return home for the holidays. As they attempt to bring the family to together to recreate the Christmas house, Brandon and his husband, Jake, anxiously await a call about the adoption of their first child, the film description on the Hallmark Channel’s website states.

Bennett added that he would have been excited to see a film such as The Christmas House when he was younger. “I can only imagine what younger me would have thought seeing a Christmas movie with a storyline like this; two men in love, having a baby together. I think I would have been so excited, and I know I’m excited.”

Adopting is something Bennett and his partner, Jaymes Vaughan, have spoken about, too.

“We’re thinking about that for sure, especially shooting this movie it really spoke to me,” he said. “It’s almost like life imitates art.

Allister Foster/Crown Media

“I am so proud of Hallmark Channel and everyone there for doing what they did this year, which was taking the holiday table and making it bigger and more welcoming than ever,” Bennett said. “I think so many people are gonna feel seen and so many people are gonna feel like they belong in the Hallmark family — and they do. It’s gonna be a really special year for so many people.”

In a separate promotional clip for the Hallmark film, Bennett said that what he’s most looking forward to this Christmas is spending time with his family.

“Family is the most important thing in the world to me,” he said, adding that some of the scenes from the new movie even inspired him to call his family. “I really hope this movie inspires people to come together with their families and surround each other with unconditional love,” he said.

The Christmas House premieres Nov. 22 at 8/7c on Hallmark.
