Remember this issue of Cosmo with Miley Cyrus on the cover?
Well, apparently Miley has trouble selling it because over the past weekend I had to endure virtually a tweet a minute from her, urging her fans to go out there and put Cosmo on top of the other magazines that are on display at various news stands across the country.
Worse yet, she encouraged her minions to take a photo of their, er, work, and post it on Twitter, and as a reward, Miley re-twitted the images. She even started a hash-tag trend (#MileyCosmo, if you care). Kind of an elaborate scheme, right? Wait till you hear the rest.
Some of her fans got reprimanded for this guerrilla type of marketing, and got kicked out. Miley’s reaction was unflinching. She tweeted her fans to explain that Miley sent them:
First of all, dear Miley, your entrepreneurial spirit is admirable, but people are not squares. They are regular folks doing regular jobs, and for the most part, they are trying to get through a day of scanning shampoo bar-codes and asking people if they found everything okay without having to deal with a bunch of erratic kids messing up the store’s magazine shelves, and certainly without being insulted by random celebrities.
Secondly, this incident makes me think once again about the power famous people possess over the mass public. If Miley Cyrus can single-handedly form an army of fans to work for her for free, she could easily convince them to jump off a bridge. Or, you know, to do something that really matters – like saving the environment, or at least to be nice to one another.

Just ask Miley, because apparently, she’d know.
This is girlfriend, continuing her Costa Rican adventure, hanging out and doing yoga (I think) on the beach.
All I know is that Liam Hemsworth is one lucky, lucky man—wouldn’t you agree?
Check out the gallery for more photos of Miley

Is that a little nipple I see, there, Miley Cyrus? Is that what that is? I’m not really sure. You and your Instagram filter, it makes everything shadowy look like a nipple. That a nipple on your belly? Or on your left leg? Don’t know, but the thing peeking out toward the dreamcatcher tattoo in your armpit sure looks like a nipple, but hey. Maybe it’s not … maybe it’s just not. (Also? For the advertisers? No—that’s definitely not a nipple, OK?)
In any case, Miley looks pretty great here, and I’m loving that corset/tube top. Isn’t it just lovely? It looks like those blankets that they sell down on beach boardwalks, and it’s probably just as comfortable and cozy, too. Which is to say, not at all. The top retails for $104, and it’s by Rad and Refined. Once I get the rest of the fruitcake and Chrismas cookies away from my midsection, maybe I’ll go and buy one, too. It’s just that cute.
Love it or leave it—Miley’s look?

Oh man, guys. Miley looks so good here. Seriously, she looks happy and fun and free and young, and isn’t that what Miley’s been about all these years? Yeah, her penis cake was a little over the top, and the initial hair thing was a little much, but all in all, Miley’s just twenty years old, and come on. What were you like at twenty years old? Me? Well. I can say that I was almost exactly like Miley at twenty, just minus all the money and the Liam Hemsworth-looking boyfriends. Mine were even better looking.
Ahem. Here’s Miley, to Cosmo UK, on the best part of her life:
“Number one is my relationship with Liam. That’s what I feel the most confident in because you never know. There’s so much hype behind my new record, but it could come out and, worst-case scenario, everyone [expletive] hates it.”
And Miley on thinking that the best part of her life is super hot:
“I’ll literally look at him and be like ‘You are hot, dear god!’ The other day, I turned on the pool heater and it was steaming, and he walked outside and took off his clothes and jumped in the pool. I was like, ‘I’m gonna faint–the hottest guy of my life is in a steaming pool. This looks like a Playgirl shoot.’ So I took a photo and made it the background on my phone. My best friend grabbed my phone and was like, ‘Who’s that? He is so hot!’ That’s my hubby!”
Hubby. Interesting, huh? Wonder if there was any truth to that quickie wedding rumor that happened awhile back.
Next, Miley on what it was like from Hannah Montana to where she is now:
“Some of the worst things that have happened in my career, like things getting leaked, have actually been what’s best for me, because people knew when I was on [Hannah Montana] that I was really growing up. I never faked anything. I never played the Disney game of smiling and being a princess and then suddenly having a hard time, saying, ‘That isn’t who I really am.’”
On being friends with other ladies in her industry and being true to herself:
“Katy Perry’s been my friend for f***ing five years, and I’m not ever gonna let our work get between that relationship. If Katy sticks with being Katy, and Ke$ha is Ke$ha, and Rihanna is Rihanna, and I’m me, there’s room for everybody. The problem is when people look at Gaga and say, ‘Oh, that works; I’m going to be like that.”’
See? Likable. Completely and utterly likable. I can’t wait to see what this girl is like in ten years, for real.

OK, brace yourself, guys, because this morning is about to get even more absurd than it already is, what with Taylor Swift getting dumped for the zillionth time in a row.
The latest story is that Justin Bieber‘s f-cking weirdo fans have banded together to cut themselves in an effort to make their favorite popstar stop all the pot-smoking, because duh, like, pot smoking is so, so bad and only scumbags do things like that*.
Things are getting so crazy that even dang ol’ Miley Cyrus is jumping into the fray, calling all of Justin’s fans who are considering cutting themselves stupid and “disrespectful.” From TMZ:
The hashtag #cut4bieber has become the top U.S. trend on Twitter … after people began posting photos featuring bleeding arms, allegedly the result of “cutting” by disappointed fans looking to pressure the singer into giving up his pot habit.
In fact, someone even started a website encouraging Bieber fans to cut themselves and post photos of the carnage …. until Bieber gives up marijuana for good.
But moments ago, Miley Cyrus weighed in on the troubling trend — retweeting a messaging saying:
“#cut4bieber? Cutting is NOT something to joke about. There are people who are actually suffering from self-harm, this is so disrespectful.”
Oh my God. #cut4bieber? Can we maybe change that to “#die4bieber”, because the whole idea of people being so stupid as to cut themselves because Justin Bieber, an eighteen-year-old kid who’s got the world by the balls, wants to smoke pot, kind of makes me want the human race as a whole to just keel over, because guys, we have all apparently failed miserably.
*Only scumbags do not do that. Sure, there are probably scumbags who do smoke pot, but not all people who smoke pot are scumbags. I mean, scumbags work at the bank, scumbags take care of poor, innocent children in daycare centers, and scumbags even teach at University. There are also plenty of people who work at the bank, or who take care of poor, innocent children in daycare centers, and who even teach at University who probably smoke pot and who aren’t scumbags. See? Things are just so diverse—it’s impossible to lump all people into one category and then cut yourself over the category that you don’t like.

Bean is a little girl. She is a chihuahua mix of some type :) she brought so much sunshine!!! I love my little bean so much.
So, OK. Miley‘s got a new pet, which is unsurprising, because Miley loves her pets and maybe—maybe—tries to keep a quota on how many she has at a given time. Needless to say, she’s recently had an unfortunate opening occur in her canine family, so she’s got Bean, now, and gosh, isn’t that little doggie cute? Maybe, you know, the cutest little doggie ever?
Congrats to the newly-expanded family!
