When the singer recently sat down with Fresh 102.7 in New York City, Demi said she really wanted to get Ariana Grande on her as-yet-untitled upcoming album, but they just couldn't find the right song to duet on.
With deadlines looming, the dream collab had to get put on pause for a bit longer. "I really wanted to collaborate with Ariana," Demi admits. "There wasn't really a song, unfortunately, that would be right for us to do together -- so we have yet to work together but I would love to work with her someday."
But fear not Arianators, Demi is "confident" that the team up WILL happen, "We've talked about it before. We'd love to sing together." Read morehere.
Her devoted followers are reacting to the unexpected social media scrubbing, with some thinking it's a sign that the pop superstar is about to release new music.
The deletion comes on the three-year anniversary of the release of Swift's "Shake it Off" single, which is being celebrated on Twitter with the hashtag #3YearsOfShakeItOff. Read morehere.
The clip begins with Cyrus lying in bed under the sheets reflecting: "Feels like now I just woke up/ Like all this time I've been asleep." Maybe she's ruminating about the more mature direction she's displayed with "Malibu" and "Inspired."
Then things get a little more surreal. First Cyrus is swaying back and forth playing an acoustic guitar, then she's dressed up like a cowgirl cozying up to a puppet. There's also a scene of Miley riding with backup dancers on a float, strumming an acoustic and wearing a flowing pink dress like she's in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. "Change is a thing you can count on," she sings.
During the video, Miley pays homage to Elvis by wearing a blue sequined outfit while mime children run circles around her. In another scene, she's dressed in an equally flashy red ensemble, curling her lip while she shakes and shimmies like the King. Watch the video for "Younger Now"here.

Taxi is a song I emptied the tank on. It was the last song I wrote for "Bug Fixes & Performance Improvements," and I had a lot of things I still wanted to say. It is also the song I'm proudest of.
I grew up an hour outside of New York City, in a town where nothing really happened. It was mainly populated by chain restaurants and strip malls, and had that strange paradox of overpopulation and small town (read: small-minded) sensibilities. Call it the worst of both worlds. It's not a bad place or anything; it just wasn't for me. Growing up kind of sucks anywhere, I think.
I spent those years waiting for my life to begin, with a singular vision of how things would be once I was out of there. Of course, nothing ever quite works out as we've planned, and I've had to do a lot of reckoning with the reality of it all.
Taxi is my story. Deconstructing it makes it a little less universal, but it's the truth. The song is set in the middle of the night, heading through the Holland Tunnel in a cab. If you've ever taken a New York City cab to the airport or the bus or whatever, you know that it's a whole thing -- shuffling your bags, waving down the driver. But there's a brief moment of peace before you get to where you're going when you're sitting there and there's nowhere else you can be. And this story is set in that half hour of time, reflecting on all the things that brought you here. Enjoy.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!
