Even though Miley Cyrus isn’t pregnant, a certain webloid is still claiming to have “exclusive details” on how she’ll be a “great mom.” These quotes, however, were made up. Gossip Cop can explain what’s going on.
On Thursday, HollywoodLife wrongly speculated Cyrus was pregnant and had a baby “bump.” The site wrongly jumped to conclusions after the pop star posted a social media photo in which her stomach was seemingly protruding. She made a reference in the caption to a “#VeganTurkeyBaby,” but was referring to a food baby, not an actual baby. Cyrus took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to call out the inaccurate assumptions, writing, “RUDE!!! Not pregnant just eating a [expletive] ton of tufurkey.”
Despite that denial, HollywoodLies, as it’s known, decided to continue with the untrue pregnancy narrative by claiming that a “friend” is “gushing” to the site about how “Miley and Liam Hemsworth would be amazing parents!” This so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Nobody would be surprised if she was expecting though. [They] have made no secret about wanting kids together, and about wanting to be young parents.”
This purported pal supposedly goes on to assert that Cyrus is a “natural mom,” adding that she and Hemsworth “would make awesome parents some day… Everyone is crossing their fingers and hoping for an announcement in the future.” These quotes, though, are essentially meaningless and not revealing in the slightest. So Cyrus would be a good parent? It’s not as if someone close to her would ever publicly say the opposite, like “Ugh, Miley would be a terrible mom!” So it’s no scoop for a “source” to simply state the obvious platitudes.
That said, no real “friend” would question to a blog if Cyrus is really expecting after she made crystal clear that she’s not. In addition, HollywoodLies gives itself away by going on to wonder if she and Hemsworth are “secretly married,” but also saying, “It’s unclear when exactly they will say ‘I do.'” If the outlet had real access to a member of their inner circle, as it is claiming here, then the blog should know for sure whether or not they’re married. But the online publication doesn’t have insight, which is why it flip-flopped on Cyrus having a secret wedding earlier this year.
To be clear, the webloid is simultaneously pretending to be in-the-know while showing that it isn’t at all. And though the site might think it’s okay to fudge a story about Cyrus being a “great mom” because it’s positive and plausible, that doesn’t mean the basic tenets of journalism, like accuracy and authenticity, don’t still apply. A happy report isn’t necessarily a real legitimate one.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
