Social media erupted on Sunday when a CreamBMP.com report claimed that Miley Cyrus announced, during the taping of the BET Hip Hop Awards on Sept. 29, that she was pregnant with Juicy J’s baby. And, although the 20-year-old dashed these rumors the very next day, a source close to the singer told HollywoodLife that Cyrus is thrilled about the pregnancy.
Cyrus is “embracing it rather than getting upset over it,” the source told HollywoodLife. “She is not worried about the rumors and will definitely allow them to continue as it gets her name out and she has an album to sell. So, no news is bad news!”
This news comes amidst claims made by Cyrus, whose twerking and tongue-wagging acts over the past few weeks have been widely criticized, that she carefully orchestrated the transformation to get rid of her squeaky-clean Disney image.
"I just needed to let go of the past in a way, so I felt like I could be the bad b---h I am," she said in a new one-hour MTV documentary titled "Miley: The Movement," which will premiere on Wednesday at 10 p.m. EDT. “People always want to call it a transition . . . It’s not a transition. It’s a movement. It’s a growth. It’s a change.”
Cyrus explains that her controversial performance at the VMAs was also part of a carefully laid-out plan. "You can watch that performance and think that's a hot mess. But it's a strategic hot mess. … If I wanted a raunchy sex show, I wouldn't have been dressed as a damned bear," Cyrus said, adding that she wanted people to talk about the act for weeks, and not seconds.
