Miley Cyrus Shares Single Art for “Malibu”
Miley Cyrus just shared artwork for her new single “Malibu,” and boy is it a change. She lies on grass in a turtleneck wearing her engagement ring. If the accessory wasn’t a hint enough that this new track is all about her beau, Hemsworth is credited for the photograph. The scene is a far cry from her last album art, 2015’s psychedelic-looking Dead Petz, which makes it all the more refreshing.
Cyrus has said that her forthcoming album (May 11), which is still unnamed, will hear her go…
Jaime King on Why Her New Film ‘Bitch’ Is More Than Just a Dark Comedy
“It’s the most powerful film I’ve worked on,” says Jaime King of her latest movie, Bitch. The dark comedy, which debuted at this year’s Sun Dance Film Festival, sees a suburban mom (Marianna Palka) buckle to various societal pressures until she experiences a psychotic break that causes her to believe she’s a dog.
Or, as King puts it, “We made a story about inclusiveness, about working through division, loving one another, and caring—letting go of our patterns and the way we th…
Watch Kiiara’s Vibrant New Video for “Whippin”
With her new pink hair, 2016’s breakout artist Kiiara (you definitely know her track “Gold”) is ushering in a more vibrant and playful image. Look no further than her latest music video for “Whippin (feat. Felix Snow),” which sees the singer rolling down the street in a vintage hot rod full of marijuana plants (she might be freshly experimenting with color, but she’s never been shy about experimenting with drugs).
The playfulness is a refreshing break from Kiiara’s darker offerings—her …
Haley Lu Richardson On Why ‘Columbus’ Is Her Most Fulfilling Film Yet
Although 22-year-old Haley Lu Richardson recently starred in M. Night Shyamalan’s trippy hit thriller Split, and The Edge of Seventeen, she’s more eager to see how fans will respond to her upcoming role in the indie flick Columbus. The first feature-length film by Korean director Kogonada (the auteur’s chosen nom d’artiste) has a quiet, Before Sunrise-esque plot: Richardson plays a recent high school grad named Casey who befriends Jin (played by John Cho), a visitor to Casey’s…
Looking Foxy: Megan Fox on Her First Lingerie Line
Megan Fox is relaxed, clad in a T-shirt that says “Brunch or Die.” Her seven-month-old son, Journey—Fox’s third child in four years—is just outside with the nanny, adorable as hell in a dinosaurs-and-pizza-print onesie. The scene doesn’t exactly jive with the idea of a magazine shoot featuring a sex icon’s new venture: revamping Frederick’s of Hollywood, a heritage intimates company founded in the 1940s. But for Fox, the setting is perfect, because lingerie can be about comfort.

Kendall Jenner Talks to Mario Testino About Their Many Collaborations
V105 cover star Kendall Jenner sat down with famed photographer Mario Testino for his podcast On the Sofa and opened up about working together and the creative drawbacks of modeling, specifically mentioning how she believes that the fashion world does not experiment with her enough.
“I love being transformed,” she explains. “Everyone always wants to make me myself. Because not only am I a model but I guess have a name too, so they get confused, they don’t know how to use me.” Speci…
Meet Niia, the Wyclef Jean Protégée Bringing Classical Music to a Modern Sound
Since she was a child, L.A.-based singer-songwriter Niia Bertino knew she was meant to be a musician. Music was always around her thanks to having a classical pianist as a mother and a family full of talented performers. After dabbling in classical piano playing, Niia branched out into singing. Her love of classical music, jazz musicians like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, and depressing, yet dramatic songs fueled her own songwriting.
A self-proclaimed “sensitive soul,” the 28-year-ol…
