Miley Cyrus stopped by Howard Stern's Siriux XM show yesterday to chat about her new song, Saturday Night live and her guest slot on the upcoming fifth series of dystopian Netflix thriller Black Mirror.

She dropped Nothing Breaks Like A Heart with Mark Ronson only a few weeks ago, and we are LOVIN' it. 

She's set to perform Happy Xmas (War is Over) with Ono Lennon on SNL, and will more than likely appear in a sketch or two. The buzz surrounding Black Mirror began when Cyrus was spotted filming in South Africa.

She commented about her involvement with the smash hit show (which honestly shakes us to our core) in a coy manner, but we all know it's damn truth and we cannot wait to see her act.

When Stern quizzed the singer on her guest role, she said; “If you guess it, then I will shake my head ‘yes.'” She nodded, confirming that our TV drama dreams have come true.

“The minute I say I never want to do something again, all of a sudden, there I am,” she added.

“I hate everything, but it was the first time I’ve left somewhere feeling really proud of my work…but you know if I like it that might mean it’s horrible.”

Speaking about her character on the show, she described her as having “a lot of dynamic”, and also mentioned the horrific wildfires which raged in California and destroyed her home. 

“There’s a lot of dimension to it, and actually it was while the devastation of Malibu was happening, and it was a really weird learning experience for me, because I was so far from home and the show is already really dark, and it’s already kind of eerie when you’re there the whole time," she said.

The Malibu songstress was also questioned on her friendship with fellow pop goddess Ariana Grande, and Miley claims that she texted the Thank U, Next icon following her much-publicised break-up with Pete Davidson a… cat emoji?

“I thought it was slightly even making her feel good, like maybe I was hitting on her a little bit.” I mean, Ari is a queen, so we support this.

We can't wait to see Miley hit our Netflix screens when the anticipated next season of Black Mirror is released, the countdown begins.


It seems that with every passing day, a brighter light is being shone on the degrading situations women in the entertainment industry are faced with while simply doing their jobs.

From the women, who have come forward against Harvey Weinstein, to Blake Lively's admission that a make-up artist filmed her without her permission while she slept, countless stories are emerging which speak volumes of the power imbalance in the entertainment industry.

Yesterday, footage from 2005 was unearthed which saw Emma Bunton fend off degrading questions posed by Howard Stern and his co-host, Robin Quivers.

While appearing on Howard's radio show, the former Spice Girl was questioned about her virginity, her puberty and the arrival of her first period.

While clearly attempting to keep the mood light, Emma sidestepped a lot of the questions before outwardly insisting she wasn't going to answer some of them.

"I don't care, I'm not telling you about that. Absolutely not. I am being honest but I don’t want to tell you that," she responded when Howard asked her when she got her period.

The footage has caused outrage on social media, with one person sharing the video and writing: "Should watch this Emma Bunton/Howard Stern clip. Entertainment industry allows men w/power (like Harvey Weinstein) to treat woman like meat."

Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud fame also shared the video and expressed her disgust for the way in which a then 29-year-old Emma was treated while appearing as a guest on the show.

"This old tape is disgusting. Poor Emma. Don't let anyone ever subject you like this, you're well within your rights to tell him to GFH," Nicola wrote.



Earlier today while appearing on The Howard Stern Show, Ben Stiller revealed that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2014.

Following on from his chat with Howard, the much-loved actor published an essay which detailed his diagnosis and offered an insight into his thought process at the time.

"As my new, world-altering doctor spoke about cell cores and Gleason scores, probabilities of survival, incontinence and impotence, why surgery would be good and what kind would make the most sense, his voice literally faded out like every movie or TV show about a guy being told he had cancer," Ben wrote.

"A classic Walter White movement, except I was me, and no one was filming anything at all," he added.

After undergoing a routine prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test in June 2014, Ben, who married actress Christine Taylor in 2000, was dealt the devastating blow, but insists he is grateful and urges men to get tested.

"Taking the PSA test saved my life. Literally. That's why I am writing this now," he wrote. "If i had waited, as the American Cancer Society recommends, until I was 50 I would not have known I had a growing tumour until two years after I got treated."

"If I had followed the US Preventative Services Task Force guidelines, I would have never gotten tested at all and not have known I had cancer until it was way too late to treat successfully."

Explaining that he immediately sought the advice of Meet the Parents co-star Robert De Niro, who was also diagnosed with the disease, writing: "The first thing I did when I got diagnosed was get on the internet to try to learn. I saw De Niro had had it. I called him right away."

Ben, a father-of-two, underwent a prostatectomy three months later and is now cancer-free.

"As of this writing I am two years cancer free and extremely grateful," the 50-year-old said in a piece which has been published in Medium.



After Mila Kunis starred in Friends with Benefits, and Ashton Kutcher starred in No Strings Attached, the two actors – who first met on the set of That 70s Show – decided to live out their respective film scripts.

According to popular actress, the pair didn't decide to embark on the traditional relationship route initially, agreeing instead to remain friends… with benefits.

Speaking to Howard Stern on SiriusXM yesterday, the Black Swan star revealed that after re-igniting their friendship back in 2012, they couldn't hide their feelings for one another, but weren't sure whether a relationship was on the cards.

Mila admitted 'she got butterflies' while at a party with him and explained that despite the fact Ashton had intended to set Mila up with a friend, he got pretty 'territorial' when it came to his former co-star.

After unexpectedly spending the night together, Mila was adamant she wouldn't be staying, telling Howard: "Like, when I was single, I was so adamant about never, as stupid as it sounds, never staying over at a guy's house. I was, like, peacing out, and he was like, ‘You're not leaving.’"

"Well, I'll tell you this much, he didn't let me leave," she continued. "At two in the morning I was like, 'I'm gonna call an Uber! See you later.' And he was like, 'You're crazy!' And I was like, 'Bye!"

With Ashton only months on from divorcing Demi Moore, both stars decided it was best to keep things casual, with Mila saying: "If we just paid attention to these movies, we should know that sh** like this does not work out in real life."

"Well, we clearly didn't pay attention," she laughed. "We shook hands, we're like, 'Let's just have fun!"

Revealing more than one might expect of the notoriously private actress, Mila revealed that it reached a point where neither was happy if the other was 'with' someone else.

"It ended up going from just having fun to genuinely wanting," Mila admitted. "When I realised I was nervous was when I spoke to him.  I was like, 'I don't like this anymore.'"

Mila and Ashton, who share one daughter together, tied the knot last year and are now said to be expecting twins.


After a two-year engagement, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux tied the knot last week in a top-secret ceremony at their home in Los Angeles.

Although the couple, who are currently vacationing with friends in Bora Bora, worked hard to keep details of their big day under wraps, now that it's over we've finally gotten the juice. Radio host Howard Stern dished on some of the ins and outs of the ceremony and after-party on his radio show yesterday, and it sounds like it was quite the wedding.

While Howard did make a speech full of "personal stuff" on the day, it's some of the other celebrity cameos that really had us smiling.

Chat show legend Jimmy Kimmel pulled a Joey Tribbiani for the special event and stepped in to officiate proceedings. He apparently did "a beautiful job," though Howard joked that things were a little touch and go. 

"Jimmy was the preacher. I didn’t think he’d get through it. Jimmy’s still depressed about that lion getting killed over in Africa," Howard said, in reference to Jimmy's emotional speech about Cecil the lion on air last week.

As for the music, there was no boring wedding band or soppy DJ playing The Power of Love for Jen and Justin. Instead they asked Australian hitmaker Sia to perform live for their first dance as husband and wife.

If you were hoping for a few leaked photos of the performance from careless guests, don't get your hopes up, because Howard revealed that everyone (including him) had their phones confiscated once they entered Jen and Justin's property. Last week it was also reported that all staff working at the wedding and on the property had their phones taken away for a full week leading up to the big day.

"Why can’t I have my cell phone? I don’t want to take a picture of you two! I really don’t,” Howard complained on air yesterday. “I want my cell phone so after I make this speech I can call my car and get the f*** outta here! People were laughing at my misery."

Less than 24 hours after their wedding, the newlyweds boarded a Gulfstream V private jet and headed to the lavish Four Seasons resort on Bora Bora with pals including Jimmy Kimmel, Jason Bateman and Jen's maid of honour Courteney Cox.

Suites at the luxurious resort start at around €1,200, and guests can choose between over-water bungalows or villas located on a private section of beach.

The couple were "were giddy to have pulled off an amazing wedding celebration with their friends," a source told PEOPLE magazine. "They want the celebration to last as long as possible." 


Just two months ago, Sam Smith took to Twitter to tell the world he was choosing to ignore the cruel comments made about him by radio host Howard Stern.

Howard sent Sam and his fans into outrage when he called the Stay With Me singer "fat" and an "ugly motherf***er" live on air back in January.

Despite rising above Howard's comments at the time, it seems Sam has indeed decided to make some big lifestyle changes. The singer revealed on Instagram this week that he's dropped a whopping 14 pounds in just two weeks.

Taking to Instagram to share the news, Sam posted a picture of himself holding a book by celebrity nutritionist Amelia Freer. "Three weeks ago I met a woman who has completely changed my life. Amelia Freer has helped me lose over a stone in 2 weeks and has completely transformed my relationship with food," Sam wrote.

"Everyone go check out her incredible book, and start to live healthy. It's not even about weight loss it's about feeling happy in yourself. Love you Amelia & thank you for making me feel so happy inside and out @ameliafreer #eatnourishglow."

As well as changing up his diet, Sam's also been going hard at the gym – just yesterday he shared a picture of him looking exhausted after some weight training with the caption, "gym is kicking my ass today."

We're delighted to see Sam embarking on a healthier lifestyle, but we hope he knows to take things slowly and with care, too.



This is just way, way too far! TV star and radio personality, Howard Stern has been blasted for branding UK singing sensation, Sam Smith “an ugly motherfu**er”…when describing why he likes him so much. Eh?

The radio show host was describing Sam when he came up with some less-than-pleasant reasons as to why he admires him: “You know what I like about that guy? He’s an ugly motherfu**er. He’s fat.”

He then went on to say that Sam seems effeminate, saying: “Is he gay? He looks gay to me, not that anybody looks gay, but he does seem effeminate. I like that he’s chubby and gay. That’s why I love him.”

Wow – and how could Sam possibly be offended by your list of things you love about him, Howard? Replying to the cruel words, Sam decided to take the high road and simply tweeted: “Can’t believe what I’ve just read … Ignore.”

We love that he isn’t letting people get him down – there’s a lot of cruel people to put up with when you reach the top it would seem!

Sam is currently nursing a broken heart after his relationship with boyfriend of two months, Jonathon Zeizel came to an abrupt end last week.
