It's become too taxing to resist the daily onslaught of faux news about Miley Cyrus. We surrender: We'll publish every scrap we see.

In the latest, the overexposed singer's pa, Billy Ray Cyrus, has decided to open up about the state of Miley's soul in these dark times since her engagement to Liam Hemsworth collapsed and she began making a fool of herself with phallic objects in front of every camera pointed at her.

MiCy, BiCy says, is doing remarkably well. "All I know for sure is I heard my daughter say today she's the happiest she's ever been in her life immediately following" the breakup, he tells Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell. Miley concurs. Monday she told Today's Matt Lauer, "I'm the happiest I've ever been in my whole life."

He was 36 when his doc told him, "You've graduated. You've got type 2 diabetes, young man," Hanks said. He's feeling better, lost some weight, he added.

"I'm trying to campaign, since the government ain't working, we shouldn't have to pay taxes," he told VH1 Tuesday. "Because, you know, paying taxes is supposed to pay for the government, which in turn is not working."
