While Trace is busy prepping for fatherhood and running his fashion line, Southern Made Hollywood Paid, what is Miley up to these days?
Dating Liam Hemsworth
Now that she's wrapped up her latest tour, Miley Cyrus is focusing more on her personal life than her career. The singer's spending lots of quality time with beau Liam Hemsworth, 21, who's set to star in the upcoming "Hunger Games" movie. According to Us, the pair have been jet skiing in Michigan. And before that, they were snuggling in Columbia and even meeting at airports in South America and Australia during breaks from Miley's tour.
Getting TattoosThough Miley has multiple tattoos, including a heart, an anchor, a dreamcatcher and the words "Just Breathe," her latest bit of ink has become a topic of controversy. According to Access Hollywood, Miley took to Twitter to show off an equal sign that she'd gotten on her finger. She accompanied the picture of the tattoo by writing, "ALL LOVE is equal." The singer has been previously vocal about her support for LGBT rights, but the tattoo led to a Twitter firestorm of both negative and positive responses.
Taking to TwitterSpeaking of Twitter, Cyrus has reached over two million followers on the popular social networking site. The young singer is a Twitter phenomenon. When anything important happens in her life, it seems she takes to Twitter to report to her fans. And who could forget the time she quit Twitter, only to return, in her words, "to follow @charliesheen."
Raising a New PuppyNot only is Miley Cyrus about to become an aunt, she's adding to her family in her own way. The "So Undercover" star adopted a puppy named Floyd. In true Miley fashion, she couldn't help but share pictures and express her love for the new pup via Twitter. According to Us, the star wrote: "Floyd was barking to get my attention and I was to busy tweeting so he jumped into the bath tub with me!"
