Miley Cyrus may be a “big star” at the moment due to her bullshit antics and willingness to get naked at every turn, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some artists who aren’t interested in her fuckery. Put Gwen Stefani‘s name at the top of that list. You see, Miley wanted to duet with Gwen for her album, but instead she ended up with Britney Spears because apparently that’s how God wanted it or something.
Songwriter Sean Garrett penned Miley’s ‘SMS’ track (which sucks, by the way), and explained to MTV News that they wanted both Gwen and Nicki Minaj on the track but Britney was the best they can do. No shade to Britney, bless her, but… she’s not necessarily the most discerning creature.
“The first name that we tossed around was Gwen Sefani. We were talking about Gwen because you know Gwen got that edge too, but that’s how God works. We were throwing around those ideas,” Garrett said on Wednesday (October 9) about the song he helped pen with Mike Will Made It. “Nicki, we were talking about putting Nicki on there too. That would’ve been nuts too, but I think that’s how God works, this was absolutely the right one.”
“It’s like five different things, it’s hip-hop, it’s the girls, it’s a female anthem, Salt-n-Pepa, Britney and Miley… people didn’t get that.”
First of all, no. Do not dare compare Miley’s corny ass to hip-hop greats like Salt-n-Pepa. Like, take their names out of your mouth. Second of all, God didn’t will Britney spears onto that song – I guarantee you both Gwen and Nicki gave it a big HELL NO and they just had to go with it.
I think Bangerz is quite good in very small parts. I like the singles, I like the opening track and there are one or two others on the album that are listenable, but some of it is downright offensive to ears to have to listen to. That ‘4×4’ song with Nelly makes me want to throw myself out a window. ‘SMS’ is “okay” but there’s a reason those ladies didn’t take part in it, and I assure you the Lord had nothing to do with it.
