Sometimes, things don't work out the way you hoped. It happens to the best of us, and celebrities are no exception. This year was fraught with splits, from Britney Spears and Jason Trawick calling it quits to George Clooney and Stacy Keibler throwing in the towel. We were floored when Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom broke the news of their breakup and equally saddened when Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder ended their two-year romance. And let's not forget Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus, who called off their engagement, and Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who had us rooting for them more than once. Let's talk about all the biggest celebrity breakups that left us totally flabbergasted — vote now!
What exactly does a modern-day, self-described feminist look like? An award-winning, media-dominating actress who's unafraid to speak up. In other words, Claire Danes, who told Glamour, "I am a feminist. And I'm so glad that Lena Dunham exists, because she is one too, and she's quite vocal about it." Beyoncé also dropped the f-word in a recent interview, explaining that while she's not a big fan of labels, she does consider herself a modern feminist. And other famous women have been even more unabashed about declaring themselves feminists, like Miley Cyrus, who says she considers herself to be one of the biggest feminists in the world.
Not all of these stars' celebrity peers are so eager to call themselves feminists, though. Lady Gaga infamously said awhile back, "I'm not a feminist. I hail men; I love men," as if loving men and advocating political, social, and economic equality for women were mutually exclusive. But famous feminists do have some company. Read through for quotes from famous women who are proud feminists.
Joe Jonas gets incredibly honest about his time in the Disney machine in a new story with Vulture. The former Jonas Brothers star opens up about his relationships with famous women, including Demi Lovato and Ashley Greene, his experiments with drugs, and his struggles with his brothers leading up to the Jonas Brothers breaking up earlier this year. Read on for the most revealing and honest selections from Joe's interview.
- On dating Demi Lovato: "I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse. I felt like I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn't happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help. I couldn't express any of that, of course, because I had a brand to protect."
- His firsthand experience of Demi's 2010 breakdown in South America: "Things kept building up, and Demi ended up punching a girl in the face on a plane, because she thought the girl was blaming her for something. Everybody gasped, and the girl just started bleeding. That's when her team and her family told her, 'You need to go into rehab.' I remember being in South America, and fans immediately jumped to the conclusion that we kicked her off the 2010 tour, and they just hated on us for it."
- On his date with a fan: "I remember I invited a fan to a movie, and we just made out the entire time. I don't even remember what the movie was about. I must have been 16 or so. Afterward, I was kind of freaking out, because I thought she'd go public and the whole world would find out. Luckily, she never did, I think because she assumed there'd be another meet-up down the road."
- On those infamous promise rings: "We explained that we had made these promises to ourselves when we were younger. A few months later, it comes out that we're in some cult and that we're these little staged Mickey Mouse kids. People were coming up to us, saying, 'Thank you so much, I'm waiting because you guys are, too!' And we just thought, No! That's not what we're about."
This year's American Music Awards may or may not have doubled as a white party — the crisp colour was everywhere! Nicole Richie picked a supersexy Emilio Pucci gown with cutouts and a dipping back, and Christina Aguilera wasn't too far off her path, rocking a long-sleeved Maria Lucia Hohan dress that also flashed some skin at the sides. Miley Cyrus went with a safety-pin-accented trouser suit, and Kendall Jenner went the completely opposite route, picking a micromini. So, it's decision time . . . whose white look was your favourite?
Miley Cyrus may only be turning 21 today, but she has packed quite the career into that short amount of years. Miley first burst onto the scene in 2006 when she was only 13 and landed the role of a lifetime in Disney Channel's hit show Hannah Montana. Since then, Miley has had her career ups and downs, including twerking on stage at the MTV VMAs and lighting up a joint at the MTV EMAs this year, but she managed to come out of the child-star machine as a bona fide pop star. Keep clicking to see how Miley has evolved throughout her career.
Miley Cyrus has done it again! The singer showed off a very new look on Instagram early Wednesday morning when she shared several snaps of herself with bleached eyebrows. It isn't clear why Miley ditched her brows, but she showed off the new look while hanging out with Miranda Kerr at an event. The new look could be for Sunday night's American Music Awards, where Miley is expected to perform alongside other pop acts like Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake. Her 21st birthday is also coming up on Saturday.
Last week, Miley traveled around Europe and scooped up awards at two different award shows, the MTV EMAs in Amsterdam and the Bambi Awards in Berlin. Miley caused controversy at the EMAs when she lit up a joint while accepting her award on stage. While Miley wouldn't be allowed to do drugs at the AMAs, everyone is waiting to see what the young singer will do next.

The moment we saw the gold Marc Jacobs dress Miley Cyrus wore on The X Factor, we had a feeling we'd seen that same piece before on the red carpet. Just a few months ago, Nicole Richie wore the slinky gown to the CFDA Fashion Awards. But while Nicole styled the dress with a pair of similarly gold shoes and a white clutch, Miley opted for a black turban. It's time for a fashion face-off — who wore the shimmering dress best?

After what seems like eons of baring her midriff and getting dangerously close to exposing herself to the world's media, Miley Cyrus is looking a lot more covered up.
The singer, who as we all know has some definite opinions about fashion, showed up to the Bambi Awards in Berlin last night dressed in an ultraconservative black dress — floor-length, long-sleeved, the whole nine yards — and a gold necklace accentuated with gigantic pearls. Cyrus was so covered up that she showed even less skin than Victoria Beckham, who also walked the carpet and whose own designs tend to be, well, covered up.

Miley Cyrus lit up a joint while accepting her award for best video at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam on Sunday. She was given the honor (her first-ever EMA) for "Wrecking Ball" and wasn't shy about smoking on stage during her acceptance speech. Miley arrived in true Miley fashion for her night at the EMAs. She was clad in a revealing minidress — emblazoned with photos of Biggie and Tupac — and thigh-high Tom Ford boots for the red carpet before changing into a space-age, metallic silver dress to hit the stage. The singer successfully followed up her now-infamous MTV Video Music Awards performance with her intergalactic-inspired set, dancing with a group of little people while singing into a spaceship-shaped microphone. While she did twerk on some spooky space goblins, overall the performance was pretty tame. Miley later changed again, this time slipping into a white one-piece leotard to belt out "Wrecking Ball" in front of a video of her crying face. Miley could be giving fans a taste of what they can expect from her Bangerz tour, which kicks off on Valentine's Day 2014.
Miley spent most of the past week in the Netherlands capital while gearing up for her EMAs gig and seemed to be, um, enjoying all that the city has to offer. She hung out at the cannabis cafe Greenhouse with Dutch DJ Afrojack after touching down last Sunday, and was spotted leaving the same spot with model Cara Delevingne on Friday night. Miley referred to Amsterdam as the "happiest place on Earth" in a recent Instagram snap that she shared while relaxing in bed.
She's done it again! Miley Cyrus stunned the crowd when she arrived to the MTV Europe Music Awards wearing a statement-making printed lace-up minidress with a plunging neckline. Silver arm candy, layered necklaces — not to mention those eye-catching thigh-high peep-toe boots — put the finishing touches on her sexy look. But Miley wasn't the only star to turn up. Katy Perry brought retro glamour in her seafoam Zac Posen dress, which she delicately paired with platform sandals, and Rita Ora had a Marilyn moment in a slinky and sexy black dress with a slit up to there. So what do you think — was Miley outdone? Or does her red carpet look reign supreme?
