Great news, Hilary Duff fans! The Lizzie McGuire alum and pop star is getting closer and closer to that music career comeback ... and she looks fantastic!
The 26-year-old actress and singer was spotted with several other people on a beach in Malibu, California on Friday, July 11. She sported an black scalloped-edge bikini draped with an orchid-colored cover-up, tied Grecian-style, that flowed in the wind. She paired the romantic look with several pieces of jewelry.
A source confirmed to E! News that Duff was filming a music video. No further details were provided. Duff also shared on her Twitter page a photo of herself in a sitting on a rock and looking out toward the ocean. She's wearing a white linen cover-up and what appears to be the same jewelry.
Duff launched her music career in 2002, a year after the debut of the part-animated Disney Channel series Lizzie McGuire, in which she played the title character. The series lasted for three years, spurred a movie and gained her a massive fan following.
Her last major studio record was Dignity, released in 2007. Duff had also dropped a greatest hits album in 2008 and contributed a track to the soundtrack of the 2009 film What Goes Up. In recent months, Duff has been working on new music. She told E! News several months ago that she hoped to release a new album this fall.
She shared on her Twitter page a photo from a music studio on June 26 (see below.)
The singer has been concentrating on her acting career over the past few years and appears in the new TV Land comedy series, Younger, which is also set to premiere this fall.
She has been going through some personal issues as well. Duff announced in January that she and husband Mike Comrie, father of their 2-year-old son Luca, had split. The two have remained friendly and no divorce papers have been filed.
The actress and singer talked about their relationship with E! News this past spring. Watch the interview below.
