Watch Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande Cover ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’

Another addition to Backyard Sessions videos

Earlier this month, Miley Cyrus launched a new charity called the Happy Hippie Foundation to raise awareness and much-needed funds for homeless and LGBT youth—and she’s been shining a light on the cause by calling upon her fellow artist friends to make incredible new music.

With her series of Backyard Sessions videos, the Bangerz singer has teamed up with everyone from Against Me’s Laura Jane Grace to rocker Joan Jett to ’60s songwriting icon Melanie Safka for a series of intimate videos filmed in Cyrus’ backyard.

Now, she’s collaborated with Ariana Grande for her latest edition—and EW and PEOPLE are proud to premiere the duo’s rendition of Crowded House’s indelible 1986 hit “Don’t Dream It’s Over.” Check out the clip below.

So what led Cyrus to stand up for homeless and LGBT youth? The 22-year-old recently shared that the suicide of transgender teen Leelah Alcorn led her to take action.

“It hit me as hard as if I had known her,” Cyrus wrote in a touching essay for Medium. “I felt connected to her. For a year, my focus has been on helping homeless youth, and it was heartbreaking to hear that 40 percent of homeless teens identify as LGBT. The more I learned about what life can be like as a transgender person, the more I realized how especially woven into homelessness that is. Acceptance is a huge step towards eradicating youth homelessness. Being who you are and who you want to be has nothing to do with gender, sexuality, body type, race, or age.”

Cyrus added that the goal of the Happy Hippie Foundation is simple: “The Happy Hippie Foundation is encouraging people to be the artists of a picture of true freedom, freedom of self-expression…freedom to be true to themselves. The fight to be free isn’t over. We have to rally together and fight injustice. Being a happy hippie means making others happy, even those unlike yourself!”

Days after revealing she’s battling breast cancer, Sandra Lee announced she’s pushing back her double mastectomy until she recovers from an upper respiratory infection.

Lee, 48, shared the news with her fans Wednesday on Facebook.

“Although I’ve been on antibiotics hoping that it would clear up so I could move forward with my procedure this Thursday, the doctors think it best for me to postpone my operation until early next week,” she wrote. “I thank you all so so so much for your kind messages and loving thoughts.”

The celebrity chef spoke to PEOPLE about her heartbreaking diagnosis Tuesday.

“Life can turn on a dime,” she said, adding that her new mission is “to spread the word about early detection.”

Lee’s longtime love, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, has said he will take time off the job to help care for her.

“A situation like this quickly puts life in the proper perspective and reminds one of what’s truly important,” Cuomo, 57, said in a statement.

The Australians Want to Put Down Johnny Depp’s Cute Little Terriers

"Cabaret" Broadway Opening Night - Arrivals & Curtain Call

That's what you get for flouting quarantine rules

Johnny Depp has caused quite a political and diplomatic shake-up in Australia this week while shooting there for the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Well, at least his dogs did.

The actor was warned by the country’s Department of Agriculture that his Yorkshire terriers Boo and Pistol would be put down if they weren’t taken out of the country within 50 hours, Australian broadcaster ABC News reported. This is because the actor failed to put them into quarantine.

“There is a process if you want to bring animals: you get the permits, they go into quarantine and then you can have them,” said Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce.

“But if we start letting movie stars — even though they’ve been the sexiest man alive twice — to come into our nation [and break the laws], then why don’t we just break the laws for everybody?”

Several other Aussie politicians, including the Immigration Minister and the Queensland Treasurer, agreed, saying Depp can’t be exempted from the country’s quarantine protocols just because he’s a movie star who flew in with his dogs undeclared on a private jet.

Several of Depp’s fans, meanwhile, have started an online petition to save the tiny canines, although many of them blame the actor for flouting laws. “Help me tell Barnaby Joyce not to kill or remove Johnny Depp’s dogs from Australia,” the petition, started by Sydney woman Namita Sopal, reads.

“It’s not the dogs’ fault. It’s his stupid fault,” reads a message on the petition.

Joyce, meanwhile, made his position quite clear with classic Australian frankness.

“It’s time that Pistol and Boo buggered off back to the United States,” he said.

The Fast and Furious star died in a 2013 car wreck

The younger brother of late actor Paul Walker told People in a recent interview that he hopes to continue his brother’s legacy of philanthropy—something the Fast and Furious star was passionate about, but wasn’t necessarily known for.

Walker died in a car crash in November 2013 when he was 40 years old, leaving behind not just family, friends and fans, but a humanitarian relief organization that he had founded in the wake of the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010. Now, Cody Walker aims to follow in his footsteps, taking on the role of brand manager at Reach Out Worldwide, or ROWW.

“Aside from acting, his daughter and ROWW were the most important things in his life, hands down,” the 26-year-old said. “”He was very proud of ROWW and the incredible people he had surrounded himself to make up that team. I’m just doing the best that I can to keep his vision consistent.”

Mad Max‘s Tom Hardy Opens Up About Struggles With Addiction

“I would have sold my mom for a rock of crack"

Actor Tom Hardy says he’s lucky to be alive.

The Mad Max: Fury Road star admitted in a recent interview with Essentials magazine that his drug problem during his 20s had gotten so bad that he would have given up a family member for some. “I would have sold my mom for a rock of crack,” Hardy said. “I am fu-king lucky to be here.”

The 37-year-old actor said he was a “shameful suburban statistic,” struggling with alcohol and drugs before sobering up in 2003. “I was told very clearly, ‘you go down that road, Tom, you won’t come back. That’s it. All you need to know.'”

Hardy, who played Bane in the The Dark Knight Rises, plays Max Rockatansky in the Mad Max flick that hits theaters on Friday.

Cate Blanchett Says She’s Had ‘Many’ Off-Screen Relationships With Women

Actress Cate Blanchett attends the premiere of "Cinderella" in Hollywood on March 1, 2015.
Jason LaVeris—FilmMagic/Getty Images Actress Cate Blanchett attends the premiere of "Cinderella" in Hollywood on March 1, 2015.

The actress revealed a surprise while talking about her film Carol

Cate Blanchett was able to draw on personal experiences while preparing for her new film.

The 45-year-old actress is starring in the screen adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price of Salt, which takes place in the 1950s and tells the story of a woman named Carol (played by Blanchett) who enters into a secret romance with a female department store clerk (played by Rooney Mara).

When asked by Variety if this was her first intimate experience with a woman, Blanchett replied with a wry smile, “On film – or in real life?”

Pressed to elaborate, the Cinderella star confirmed she has had off-screen relationships with woman “many times,” but declined to comment further.

Blanchett, who recently adopted a daughter with her husband of 18 years, says that she also “read a lot of girl-on-girl books from the period” to prepare for the role.

And while there will be some steamy scenes between the two characters, Blanchett promises nothing overly graphic.

“It’s not Blue Is the Warmest Color,'” Blanchett says. “That’s not the ambition of the film.”

Instead, Blanchett hopes Carol will break misconceptions in Hollywood about female-driven films while appealing to a wide range of audiences.

“It was so hard,” she explains of getting the film made. “Midrange films with women at the center are tricky to finance. There are a lot of people laboring under the misapprehension that people don’t want to see them, which isn’t true.”

Citing powerful female figures like Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Cinderella director Allison Shearmur, Blanchett says she’s hopeful things will change now that “there’s been a critical mass of women who have reached a certain place in the industry.”

“I want it to not be discussed anymore,” she adds. “But it needs to be discussed.”

Carol will compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

Pink Says She Will ‘Not Be Bullied’ Over Weight

The singer-songwriter holds her ground strong

Last month, Pink schooled body-shamers on Twitter for making negative remarks about her weight in regards to a red-carpet photo of her at an event. Now, the star is explaining why promoting an anti-bullying message in today’s society is a cause close to her heart.

“I don’t take well to bullying,” she told Entertainment Tonight on the carpet at Tuesday’s BMI Pop Awards, with husband Carey Hart standing at her side. “I never have. I’m not a person that will be bullied. I’m not a person that will stand by watching other people bullied.”

The 35-year-old singer, who famously stripped down for PEOPLE’s 2014 Most Beautiful issue, also explained that while she puts on a strong front and still feels great in her own skin, it’s not easy for her to take the harsh comments.

“I am a girl, I have feelings and people think I take no s— and I’m tough, tougher than nails, but I’m a human being,” she said.

But she wanted to remind her haters that she still doesn’t take their rude remarks too seriously. “I don’t care. My life is full, I like food a lot and I really like to cook, I like to live, I find joy in that, and were doing all right in the Hart household.”

Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers Scored on Celebrity Jeopardy!

The quarterback won $50,000 for his selected charity

An astronaut, an entrepreneur-TV personality and a football player walking into a room sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it happened on Tuesday’s Celebrity Jeopardy!—and the athlete came out on top.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers bested Kevin O’Leary of Shark Tank and Mark Kelly on the trivia game show with a final score of $8,399, which means $50,000 will go to the charity of his choice, Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Yahoo Sports reports. (Kelly and O’Leary won $10,000 for their causes.)

Rodgers’ victory wasn’t without a few missteps: he missed questions involving his college (the University of California, Berkeley) and Harley-Davidson (one of the most well-known companies in the state he now plays for). But without his participation, we wouldn’t have this Vine of Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek doing his finest Rodgers imitation.

Watch Anna Kendrick and Jimmy Fallon Play ‘Egg Russian Roulette’

“The first to smash two raw eggs on their head is the loser”

Pitch Perfect 2 is a movie that takes a relatively low-stakes situation — collegiate a capella — and makes it feel like the most urgent matter in the world. “I find that really charming!” Anna Kendrick told TIME recently. “It doesn’t have to be like, the city’s going to blow up if we don’t defuse the bomb.” So when the actress stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show to promote the sequel, in theaters Friday, it was only right that she made a silly, pointless game feel as tense as a riff-off.
