Not for real, duh (though I certainly wish someone would rocket her triflin’ ass off into space) – but Miley is doing astronaut duty in the new video for Future‘s song ‘Real and True’. We don’t have the full thing yet, only a 30 second preview, but I can already tell it’s going to be God-awful.
I don’t really get why Future, who is the hottest shit that’s up and coming in the R&B/hip hop scene right now, would willingly choose to work with Miley Cyrus, who does nothing but undermine his credibility. I honestly don’t understand and I wish I did. I want to take Miley seriously as an artist, but until she stops the bullshit, I feel like it’s too hard to do so.
In any case, Rankin directed the clip, so they premiered the sneak peek on Hunger.TV (his site) and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. I’m sure that means as much to you as anything else I could say about it. Boo, Miley. On a side note, Future just got engaged to Ciara, which I find hilarious.

HAHAHAHAHA!!! Have you ever heard anything more ridiculous than Miley Cyrus saying that she hates media attention? Her claims that she’s actually a super great feminist who’s really empowering to women is also laughable, but slightly less so because it also makes me cry that she thinks her fuckery is positive for women. Yes, it’s great that she “can’t be tamed” (2010 WARNING SIGN!) and does what she wants, but frankly, I don’t necessarily think she “wants” to be acting like an absolute idiot… but maybe I’m wrong there.
Here’s a bit from her interview with Cosmopolitan UK…
“The biggest misconception about me is that I like the media attention. I wish I could be who I am without the fame. If everyone would still buy my records and if everything would go to No.1 in 30 seconds or whatever… that’d be great.”
“I live without any regrets – you can’t change anything, so I don’t think about it. But would I ever want a ‘normal’ life? Yeah, there are definitely times when I wake up and wish I could go out without being photographed. I don’t care if people recognize me and say ‘hey’, but I don’t want to be stopped. I want to just walk around and see new cities.”
On pressure to be a role model:
“I don’t put pressure on myself to be a role model, other than hopefully inspiring people to be good and to treat people well. I’m going to be what I want, and I’m going to do what I want. When people are suffocated, that’s when they end up falling off.”
On loyalty (?):
“I’m good to work with. I’m proud of that; I have a good reputation. I’m a really loyal person and if I dig you, I’m all the way down. But if you fuck me over, I’m all the way up. It’s like, once shame on you, twice shame on me. You’re the dumb one if you let someone back into your life and they shit on you again.”
On her own sexiness:
“I’m a feminist in the way that I’m really empowering to women… I’m loud and funny, and not typically beautiful.
“When do I feel at my sexiest? After I’ve eaten something really healthy and done Pilates, and I’m wearing tight leggings. When I’m in gym clothes I actually feel sexy and healthy, so sometimes I’ll stay in them all day!”
Oh, Miley. So young, so misinformed, so terribly obnoxious. You don’t like attention? LOLOL!!! Fuck off. You’re “all the way down”? That’s when people end up “falling off”? Girl, you need to start talking like a normal person. However, the one thing I will agree on is the thing about letting people shit on you. That’s never a good thing, literally or figuratively.

Oh stop, I kid. But Miley Cyrus is still making out with anything that moves, taking a picture of it and then putting it on the Internet, because why wouldn’t she? Everyone’s favourite Wrecking Ball hit the town in New York this week and found plenty of stuff to lick and stick her tongue out at, including the above person dressed as a panda and even a Michael Jackson impersonator.
Don’t believe me? Here you go!
I thought I remember Miley saying she was retiring the tongue thing, by the way? I mean, I know licking is slightly different from her signature “tongue sticking out” picture pose, but is she for real still going on like this? Dear God. On the plus side, it’s obviously working for her – Bangerz is killing it in the charts.

Betty White is a goddamn trouper, isn’t she? She’s got a candid camera type-show called Off Their Rockers (that maybe isn’t doing so well considering it’s moving from NBC to Lifetime next year). She took that title to heart when she rode a wrecking ball just like in Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” video. Ms. White is fully clothed in her video, however.
The video is a promo for her show. In the vid, she explains she was inspired by pop culture events that “really got the kids talking.” She (or a digital version, it’s pretty bad) then bursts through a wall on a wrecking ball. It cuts to her in closeup and she says, “Can someone get me a sledgehammer?” And then at the end, “How ’bout a foam finger?”
I love Ms. White but I am so sick of Miss Cyrus, and I really wish she didn’t do a Miley parody. It’s just too easy and sadly wasn’t very funny. BUT THAT’S JUST MY OPINION. Watch the promo and decide for yourself!

Miley Cyrus wrecked her competition when her album, BANGERZ, debuted #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart. Though E Online reported that she reached #1 on the iTunes charts as well, BANGERZ is currently at #5. Pearl Jam’s “Lighting Bolt” has the #1 spot — at least for now. These things can change pretty quickly and frequently, as we saw with Gaga’s “Applause” single. Wonder if her album will debut as as strongly as Miley’s.
I would guess Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” video gave the album an extra push to the #1 spot.
Will you be buying it, or at the very least, listening to it on Spotify?

Miley Cyrus has got another open letter, but it’s not from Sinead O’Connor this time. No, instead it’s from indie musician Sufjan Stevens, who I used to listen to back in my ~cool indie college phase~ but haven’t really thought of in years. His letter to Miley was on the humourous side, and was meant to poke fun at the structure of some of the songs on Bangerz. This is all fine and well and “ha ha” (though not in any actual way) but… why?
Here’s the letter, which he published on his “ghetto blog” (WHAT?):
Dear Miley. I can’t stop listening to #GetItRight (great song, great message, great body), but maybe you need a quick grammar lesson. One particular line causes concern: “I been laying in this bed all night long.” Miley, technically speaking, you’ve been LYING, not LAYING, an irregular verb form that should only be used when there’s an object, i.e. “I been laying my tired booty on this bed all night long.” Whatever. I’m not the best lyricist, but you know what I mean. #Get It Right The Next Time. But don’t worry, even Faulkner messed it up. We all make mistakes, and surely this isn’t your worst misdemeanor. But also, Miley, did you know the tense here is also totally wrong. Surely you’ve heard of Present Perfect Continuous Tense (I HAVE BEEN LYING in this bed all night long [hopefully getting some beauty sleep?]). It’s a weird, equivocal, almost purgatorial tense, not quite present, not quite past, not quite here, not quite there. Somewhere in between. I feel that way all the time. It kind of sucks. But I have a feeling your “present perfect continuous” involves a lot more excitement than mine. Anyway, doesn’t that also sum up your career right now? Present. Perfect. Continuous. And Tense. Intense? Girl, you work it like Mike Tyson. Miley, I love you because you’re the Queen, grammatically and anatomically speaking. And you’re the hottest cake in the pan. Don’t ever grow old. Live brightly before your fire fades into total darkness. XXOO Sufjan
I mean… LOL? I don’t know, it just seems kind of pointless to me. If he wants to nitpick about grammar in pop music, he’s got quite a few letters to be writing, don’t you think? Not a fan of this.
