It’s been another busy week is pop culture, so we’ve gathered all of the most notable tweets and Instagram posts to give you a look at the headlines from the perspective of the people who make them!
Hilary Duff’s Big Comeback

The former Lizzie McGuire star announced a few weeks back that she had signed a new record deal, and now, it looks like she’ll also be returning to television! Duff’s new show Younger, which also stars Sutton Foster, got the green light from TVLand this week! Welcome back Hilary!
Chelsea Handler Teases Next Project
With her time on Chelsea Lately seemingly coming to a close, what’s next for Chelsea Handler?
The funny lady may have given us some insight this week when she posted a photo to Instagram where she can be seen holding a CBS pamphlet. As the actress/comedian noted that she was at a “Business meeting,” many have speculated that she may be in talks to take over for Craig Ferguson as host of The Late Late Show.
Still, CBS has denied those claims as of now, stating that Handler was merely meeting with the company’s “syndication” divison.
Miley Cyrus Hospitalized
Miley Cyrus had to miss several concerts on her Bangerz Tour this week due to an allergic reaction to antibiotics that landed her in the hospital. Cyrus, who had been suffering from a sinus infection prior to her tour, reportedly experienced a reaction so severe that she could be in treatment for anywhere from 5 to 27 days.
The “Adore You” singer took to Twitter to express her disappointment and to share a few updates from the hospital:

Un-Airbrushed Gaga Surfaces Online
A series of outtakes from Lady Gaga’s Versace photoshoot surfaced this week online, and while the singer still looks gorgeous, many complained that the pre-airbrushed pictures looked a little bit too differently from the final product.
Gaga has yet to comment on the matter.
Taylor Swift Gets Bridal
In yet another display of her dedication to her fans, Taylor Swift gave Gena Gabrielle an amazing gift (literally and figuratively) when she made a surprise appearance at her bridal party last weekend.
The bride-to-be has apparently been to her share of meet-and-greets with the singer, and recently told her she was getting married. Swift and her team then made sure that she would be available to attend Gena’s shower, and Taylor even reprised her video blog to document the occasion.
Lorde Is Finally ‘Royal’
Lorde got the chance to meet the person who inspired her breakout hit “Royals,” and he is in fact, a ‘Royal’!
