Sorry, I just felt like making a Monopoly reference there. Anyway, Demi Lovato is talking about Miley again and telling everyone to just leave her alone because everyone goes through shit when they’re young and fame is crazy and blah blah blah zzzzzzz.
From her chat with Katie Couric:
“I think that the world needs to get over the fact that she was Hannah Montana when she was 16. I guess my transition was a little easier because I went straight to rehab. I didn’t twerk, I just went to rehab.”
“It’s something nobody knows and nobody really knows who I am, and same with Selena [Gomez] and Jonas [Brothers], and everyone that has grown up in front of the public eye, and we’re adults now… we’re all in the process of doing that so go a little easy on us, America.”
Yeah, people should give celebs a break. But also, you can’t honestly think that being a childhood star excuses anything you might do as an adult, right? Not Demi in particular, but anyone. I had a shitty childhood, but if I went out and punched someone in the face or robbed a bank, I couldn’t use that as an excuse in court, and OF COURSE I SHOULDN’T. Being rich means your ass can afford therapy, so get some accountability, former child stars.

I’m only half surprised that Miley Cyrus and Lily Allen are apparently friends. The surprised part is the one that saw ‘Hard Out Here’ and would think that Lily would steer clear of Miley’s hot mess; the non-surprised side knows that Lily is also a feminist and if Miley says she’s in control of what she’s doing and likes shaking her ass, then Lily would be all for it. So I suppose the weirder thing here is Miley’s eyebrows.
Let’s talk about those eyebrows: What the everloving fuck? I really hate the bleached eyebrows trend and think it looks good on absolutely no one, but whatever. Miley’s edgy! She… looks like death warmed over. I’m not really sure what possessed her to do such a thing, but whatever. She’s terrifying me in this photo and I’m afraid she’s going to kill me in my dreams like Freddie Kreuger.

Oh, Miley Cyrus. So young, so unbelievably incapable of any amount of meaningful self-reflection. You see, Miley is still insisting that she’s a really great feminist – in fact, she thinks she’s one of the BEST feminists in the entire WORLD. It’s not because she demeans little people or smokes weed during an awards show; it’s not because she gets naked for Terry Richardson and got a tattoo of her grandma’s face. No, it’s because she’s living proof that women can do whatever they want! YEAH, FEMINISM!!
Here’s how she put it to BBC Newsbeat:
“I feel like I’m one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women to not be scared of anything,” she said.
She also said that her on-stage persona and revealing outfits were all part of her act.
“I don’t actually walk around all day twerking with my tongue out dressed as a teddy bear. I never worry about what I do on stage making me look bad.
“I think people if they actually knew me would be surprised at how normal I am. I’m definitely crazy but I’m normal. I feel like [I am] socially probably more acceptable than a lot of people in this industry because I’ve just always grown up around this and so I never have any kind of attitude.”
Just hang onto that part of the sentence – “I’m definitely crazy”. To be honest, I’m surprised her parents or her managers or something haven’t had her in therapy for years. I mean, even actual, non-celebrity people living regular lives can use therapy, so being forced to “build an empire” (as she herself described it) as a child must really fuck you up good and proper.
But seriously, Miley… this is not what feminism is. At all. You’re missing the point.

Miley Cyrus smoked a joint during her MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) performance. There. There’s your story. Why? Why does she do anything? Because she could. It was Amsterdam. Because she loves weed. Because she’s “just being Miley.” Because.
Are you still interested in hearing about this girl’s shenanigans?

We all love our grandparents, don’t we? I think I spent more time at my Nana and PopPop’s house as a child than I did at my own house – they were just that awesome. That being said, it’s nice when you get a little older and you can pay tribute to your parents’ parents in a meaningful way… like perhaps, you know, getting their face tattooed on your forearm or something?
That’s what Miley Cyrus did. “Because I am her favorite & she is mine,” she said of her grandmother, Loretta Finley, in photos she posted to her Instagram account. The tattoo was done by Kat Von D, which is hilarious because we haven’t heard Kat Von D’s name in reference to tattooing for years now so I kinda forgot that she even did that (no shade towards KVD – love her!). Anyhow, here it is:
I mean, it’s alright. The tattoo is… classy, if such a thing can be said, and I feel bad ragging on it because it’s her grandma and it was a really sweet gesture. It’s just… not my style. That’s okay to say, right? We can just leave it at that?
What do you think of Miley’s new ink? After all, it could’ve been a lot worse.

I generally don’t take Joan Rivers‘ opinion on anything seriously – besides maybe plastic surgery – so I’m not sure that her recent rant about Miley Cyrus will make many waves in Hollywood. However, she clearly felt she needed to lash out at the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer, who Joan describes as “disgusting”. Well, that’s that.
From OK Mag:
”Enough! That girl is disgusting. She should know her audience, and her audience is 17-year-old girls! I would never have let [now 45-year-old daughter] Melissa go to a concert like that at 17 years of age.”
Well, that’s nice and all… I mean, listen – no one can deny that Miley is over the top and a total mess, but to call her disgusting seems like a bit of a low blow. Some of what she DOES I personally find unappealing, but Joan Rivers is just such a miserable old fucking cow now. It’s a shame, because while I never found her funny, I can recognise how revolutionary she was in the comedy world. There’s nothing funny about the shit she’s been running her mouth about in the past few years, and I think SHE is the disgusting one.
I never thought I’d be defending Miley Cyrus – and I’m not, really really – but seriously, shut up, Joan Rivers.
