Although Miley Cyrus was rarely seen this year, she dominated the airwaves with her mega-hit “Flowers.”
Now she plans to keep her grip on the charts by teaming up with a man who knows exactly how to sell millions of records.
Miley is said to have recruited Taylor Swift’s long-time partner Jack Antonoff to create hits together.
Details of the meeting appeared to be leaked online after one of Miley’s fans revealed: “According to one of my friends who works in audio engineering, Miley Cyrus has arranged to meet Jack Antonoff for a studio session.”
Jack helped create some of Taylor’s biggest singles, including “Anti-Hero,” “Look What You Made Me Do” and “Cruel Summer.”
He has also co-written songs with Lana Del Rey, Lorde, The 1975, Florence + The Machine and many others.
Miley’s mother Tish confirmed last week that the former Disney star is working on a new album.
Speaking about tying the knot with Dominic Purcell at Miley’s Malibu home in August, Tish said: “As far as the song that I walked down the aisle to, it was a song that Miley wrote and which will be on their next album.
“It was absolutely perfect.”
TAYLOR Swift leads the nominations for the MTV Europe Music Awards.
The Anti-Hero singer has won seven awards, including Best Artist, Best Song and Best Video.
The ceremony, which will be broadcast live from Paris on November 5 at 8pm on MTV, is expected to be dominated by women, as Olivia Rodrigo and SZA are just behind Taylor with six nods each, while Doja Cat, Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj have four nods have a piece.
Fans can vote in the Best Song, Best Artist and Best Collaboration categories at mtvema.com.
Other nominees include Ed Sheeran, Central Cee, Arctic Monkeys and Cardi B.
NAOMI A MUSEUM PIECE
SOME of Naomi Campbell’s most famous outfits are on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London to celebrate her 40-year career in fashion.
On display are pieces from the supermodel’s extensive wardrobe, as well as haute couture pieces borrowed from famous fashion houses.
The exhibition, which is sure to be a hot ticket, will open on June 22 next year and run for nine months.
These include outfits that Naomi has worn from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld, Virgil Abloh and Vivienne Westwood.
Naomi said: “It’s an honor to be asked by the V&A to share my life with the world through clothes.”
There is currently a huge exhibition there about the greatest divas in the world.
Maybe that’s why she came up with the idea of giving this infamous diva her own portrayal.
The weekend is the highlight of 2023
THE Weeknd’s greatest hits collection, The Highlights, is the best-selling album of the year in the UK so far.
Official charts have revealed it to be ahead of Taylor Swift’s Midnights, with Harry Styles’ Harry’s House at number three, Elton John’s Diamonds at number four and SZA’s SOS at number five.
Lewis Capaldi has the biggest new release of 2023 so far with Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent.
It was released in May and sits at number 8 on the list, although he hasn’t promoted it in months as he takes time to work on his mental health.
Other records in the top ten include compilations by Fleetwood Mac, Eminem and ABBA.
RI-RI SUNSHINE AND BREATHTAKING
RIHANNA is getting dressed up again two months after giving birth to her second baby.
She looked incredible here as she joined partner A$AP Rocky for a celebratory dinner in New York to celebrate his 35th birthday.
But in a hint that her new son may be keeping her up most of the night, she hid her eyes tightly behind sunglasses even though it was dark outside.
It’s been a turbulent year for the singer, who announced her pregnancy during a performance at the Super Bowl American Football halftime show in February.

She was supposed to tour this year after returning to music with two singles in 2022, but her impending arrival put a damper on those plans.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she’s still keen to get back on stage soon.
BRIT’S NEXT BOOK WITH DRAMA
BRITNEY Spears has already started work on her second collection.
In just over two weeks, the pop star will release her autobiography “The Woman In Me.”
But the singer posted a video taken on the plane on Instagram with the caption: “Riding ‘n writing. Everything I’m doing at the moment. . . Volume two comes after a #WomanInMe.”
The Slave 4 U hitmaker split from husband Sam Asghari in August after completing the first installment.
And given Sam’s antics since their breakup became public, I’m sure Britney has a lot of things to say that could fill several pages in her next tome.
She’s had a tough time in the last few months. Fans called police to her home to check on her, most recently after she filmed a video of herself dancing with knives.
Over the weekend, she took to Instagram to vent, telling her 42.4 million followers: “It’s so unacceptable for police officers to listen to random fans and come to my house unwarranted.”
“The officers came to my house and said they wouldn’t leave until they spoke to me, like people were doing four-minute demonstrations with knives.
“I get an apology.
“I’ve been bullied at home for so long that it’s enough.”
