Kelly Osbourne has offered her friend Miley Cyrus some advice following the former child star’s controversial MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.
Cyrus has been all over the headlines after taking the stage with Robin Thicke for a sexually-charged duet on his hit song Blurred Lines, and many people in Hollywood have criticized the 20-year-old for going too far with her raunchy routine, but Osbourne has offered up some more pointed advice.
She says, “Look Miley’s my friend and I love her, and I have her back no matter what, but, as her friend, I’m going to tell her – put your (expletive) tongue in your mouth! I love you, but just put your tongue in your mouth.”
Previously, Osbourne defended her pal on Twitter.com, telling followers, “I wish ppl (people) would back off @MileyCyrus… yes she pushed peoples buttons but she is young & expressing herself… I think people forget that she is an actress! She only played #HannahMontana but she IS @MileyCyrus!”
Billy Ray Cyrus is no longer getting a divorce.
The singer-and-actor says he and his wife Tish – who are parents to ‘Hannah Montana’ star Miley Cyrus – have decided to stay together because his family now feel closer than ever.
He said: “I’ve dropped the divorce. I want to put my family back together . Things are the best they’ve ever been.”
The ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ star – who also has another daughter Noah, 10 and a son Braison, 16 with Tish – added that he has recovered his father-daughter bond with Miley after speaking out about her recent antics including smoking a legal high through a bong device.
He said: “I feel like I got my Miley back. I feel like we’re the daddy and daughter we were before ‘Hannah Montana’.”
In October he announced that he was splitting with the mother of his children after 17 years of marriage, before speaking last month of his desire to “mend” his family.
When asked if his daughter’s role as the pop princess caused difficulties at home he said the whole experience of fame was to blame.
He told TV show ‘The View’: “‘Hannah Montana’ didn’t ruin my family. Fame did.”
“Sometimes when you get in this ride, you feel like you’re strapped to a rocket.”
Miley Cyrus has come under fire from anti-drugs campaigners, who have criticised the teenage star after she was caught on camera allegedly smoking a hallucinogenic legal high.
Miley Cyrus has been criticised by the head of an international alcohol awareness group after she was allegedly spotted boozing in Spain.
The Hannah Montana actress stars with Kevin Zegers in the promo for The Big Bang, in which the Gossip Girl hunk chases Cyrus through the streets of New York and they share a passionate kiss – before suddenly realising he has imagined her.
The clip has become an internet hit – and Rock Mafia singer Tim James admits movie bosses are interested in extending the concept into a big screen film.
He tells MTV.com, “They’re actually talking about a movie. I’m excited about that too. There’s a couple of producers putting together story lines and stuff. That’s really exciting.”
The singer/actress walked up to the window of the photographer’s car and calmly told the occupants to stop taking risks on the road.
