Hilary DuffHilary Duff has denied rumours that while her split from Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden inspired her, the songs ‘Gypsy Woman’ and ‘Stranger’ on her new album are not about Joel’s new girlfriend Nicole Richie.

She said recently: “I’ve read that ‘Gypsy Woman’ and ‘Stranger’ are about Nicole but they’re not - they are about my parents.”

“I want Joel to be happy, and if she makes him happy… Obviously he’s going to find someone else, like I’m going to do.”

But she’s not rushing into her next big romance just yet: “The last thing I want right now is to be in a relationship. When you’re in a relationship you make decisions based on what’s good for both you and someone else. So now it’s nice to make decisions based on what I want - it’s empowering.”
