What is really going on with Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth? Amid reports of fights between the pair and rumors of a broken engagement, all the tabloids really have to go on are some photos and some reports of Miley going around LA without her engagement ring. Meanwhile, as the couple has been broken up and brought back together numerous times over by various media outlets – be it because of Miley’s punk-ish makeover or Liam’s alleged affair with another actress, other sources claim that while the two are not physically together, they “are talking.” This was the statement, made by an unnamed close friend of the couple, via Us Weekly.

After all this speculation, it’s no wonder that Miley herself has joined the ranks of celebrities lashing out against tabloid culture lately. On Thursday, the Can’t Be Tamed Singer Retweeted the following tweet from fellow tabloid victim Evan Rachel Wood: “The fact that we live in a world which condones the stripping of basic human rights (dignity, privacy, etc.) of people because of their status is very sad to me. We need to have higher standards for ourselves as people and a society. Please remember that before you pick up a tabloid.”

Fair enough, but there will certainly be those to object that Miley is in fact the one who sets herself up for the heaps of media attention. As if expecting that kind of criticism, she also tweeted early on Wednesday: “I am so sick of LA. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn’t call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media #draining.” Good to know. Maybe she should join Justin Bieber for a little spa retreat or something.
