Rebound romance? Miley Cyrus and French Montana shared a warm embrace in a New York City hotel lobby over the weekend, causing one media outlet to speculate that the "FU" collaborators are dating.
According to Hollywood Life, after performing at Z100's Jingle Ball concert on Friday, Dec. 13, "Miley was doing some post-show flirting with French Montana before leaving MSG [Madison Square Garden] and heading to the after-party." The gossip site also claimed that the pop star, 21, was "grinding" on the rapper, 29.
Cyrus denied the relationship rumors via Twitter on Sunday, Dec. 15. "DONT hug your friends goodbye unless you wanna be rumored 'dating,'" the singer told her 16 million followers. "I wanna think more of the world but people just keep proving their stupidity."
Liam Hemsworth's ex-fiancée got hot and bothered for another reason earlier that weekend: her flight from New York City to Boston was canceled due to "mechanical issues" and "bad weather." She had been scheduled to perform at the KISS 108 Jingle Ball but was forced to back out at the last minute.
To make up for her unexpected absence, Cyrus called in to the radio station the next day. "This has been an interesting day. I've been thanking God for my iPhone because I have been so bored. You don't even understand! I think I've bombarded my fans with twitpics today," she said.
During her seven-hour delay, Cyrus hit up a local diner, snapped selfies at Starbucks, posed with strangers' holiday decorations and "bugged other people in the airport." The singer even joked that she wanted to "hijack" a bus headed for Boston to make it in time for the show.
Cyrus also offered to perform via Skype. "No one was down!" she explained.
"I'm from Nashville so we get a little bit of snow, but I've lived in California for the past eight years so I'm just not even used to this right now," she said of the snow and freezing rain. "I have on no socks!"
Cyrus is eager to sing in Boston on Apr. 2, 2014. "When I'm there, get ready," she said of hitting the road in the new year. "The Bangerz tour is gonna be insane."
