What Movies Does Miley Hate?

Although the Twilight cast has copped to enjoying her, Miley Cyrus is once again mouthing off about how much she can’t stand the vampire saga. Miley was quoted as saying, “I’d rather keep the dead and revolting things like vampires and werewolves out of my life,” and while I don’t believe that’s totally true (I mean, have you seen her brother?), I agree that Twilight is completely unappealing.

So who do you think is better (or worse)? Miley or Twilight?

Turns Out Preteens Don’t Get The New Miley

When Miley Cyrus ditched that whole Disney image, she apparently left a lot of her fans behind too.  Sales for “Can’t Be Tamed,” Miley’s racy new album, are kind of pathetic for her – the album sold 72% less copies than her debut album, “Breakaway,” did in its first week. This drastic drop can be at least somewhat attributed to confusing her young fans.  The New York Times spoke with Perry Hamm, an 11-year-old girl, about Miley’s new image:

“I don’t know what was going on in her head. I feel like she acts 25. She looks so old. She is too old for herself.”

Too old for herself indeed.

I think this is a fine line.  Miley’s 17, so she’s not that little Hannah Montana bitch anymore, and I can’t blame her for wanting to do her own thing.  On the other hand, she does (or did, as the case may be) have a remarkable amount of children who look up to her.  What do you guys think?  Should Miley just do what she feels or mellow out for the kids?

Quotables

“Oh my God, poor girl. She’s Britney Spears all over again. It’s happening right before our eyes.” When her friend asked if she meant Lindsay Lohan, she answered, “No, she’s definitely headed the Britney route. It’s worse. Look at those outfits. It’s bad.”

Katy Perry blasts Miley Cyrus in an interview with Life & Style magazine. And though I’m not a huge, huge Miley fan, I’m even less a fan of Katy Perry’s (music), so I’m going to go ahead and say “Fuck you, Katy Perry, Miley’s going to go the Lindsay route, and don’t make me wrestle you over the shit, you fucking strong elephant of a woman, you.”

God Bless That Taylor Momsen

Taylor Momsen is in the press for making absurd comments again. She had harsh words for survivors of the earthquake in Haiti and been “I’m not looking to be Miley f***ing Cyrus. I don’t care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we’ll go along for the ride.” Although the blonde star wants to avoid comparisons with Miley, 17, she insists she doesn’t have a problem with her personally, just the Disney show ‘Hannah Montana’ that catapulted her to fame. She added to this month’s UK issue of FHM magazine: “I’m not dissing Miley personally. However, I do think the Disney bubblegum s**t that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression. I don’t know Miley, but musically we’re different. To compare us because of our age is silly. curt with interviewers, and now she wants to make it clear that that loser, Miley Cyrus? That loser is NOTHING like her.

Taylor told the UK’s version FHM:

I’m not looking to be Miley f***ing Cyrus. I don’t care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we’ll go along for the ride. I’m not dissing Miley personally. However, I do think the Disney bubblegum s**t that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression. I don’t know Miley, but musically we’re different. To compare us because of our age is silly.

She’s actually said something kind of like this before, but calling her “Miley fucking Cyrus” feels pretty brilliant to me. Taylor Momsen is going to be fine. She’s no Lohan, that’s for sure. Where Lohan hid her rebellion from us, Taylor’s going balls-out wild in public and she’s not really doing anything that bad, just some swear words and hooker clothes and bad eye makeup.

Dolly Parton Goes To Bat For Miley

“If you think I’m going to sit here and pass judgment on Miley, you’re wrong. I think she’s beautiful. I love her. She’s trying to grow up, you know, I remember when I was horny and young.”

Miley Cyrus’ Hardcore Christian Ex Strips Down For PETA

"If I Can Dream" Does PETA

Normally it’s just not right to make fun of people when they’re trying to be charitable, but these photos that Justin Gaston took with his If I Can Dream co-stars are pretty freakin’ funny. Even if you leave out the fact that this naked man who’s grabbing boobies and straddling a lady who’s taking it from both sides is a total hardcore Christian. In fact, Justin’s known for being so Christian that it was rumored he was living with the Cyrus family when he was dating 16 year old Miley. Because, ya know, the Cyrus’ were so sure nothing funny was going on between the two of them. Ugh. Those type of Christians are my favorite.

So I Got To See The Real Thing In Person Last Night…

Miley Kills It At The House of Blues

My girl Wynter hooked me up last night and took me to the Miley Cyrus concert at the House of Blues where she was celebrating the release of her new album, Can’t Be Tamed. Her performance at Sunday night’s MMAs was quite the topic of conversation over here yesterday, so while I’ve never been a huge fan of Miley’s music (I mean, who doesn’t love “Party in the U.S.A.”?), I knew that I was in for one hell of a show… and yo, that girl did not disappoint.

Let me tell you something about this Miley Cyrus: She’s not a normal kid. While she was introducing the second song of the evening, she said to the audience, “I wrote this song for my mom, who’s not here tonight. She’s sick. I mean, I would have been here, but I understand.” Woah, right!? She sold her mom out on stage… and then dove into a pretty decent song that sampled the Poison song, “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn”. As a person over the age of 15, I obviously found her use of an 80s ballad to be a bit silly, but she sang the hell out of it.

For me, that’s the anecdote that summed up the night. I don’t know a 17-year old that would have the guts to mouth off about their parents in front of a room of fans, family and industry folk, but I also don’t know a 17-year old that would be able to capture the attention of a few hundred people just by jerking around on stage and singing her heart out. I mean, it’s no freakin’ wonder she’s comes off as bratty. She can afford it! Whether or not that will hold up a few years from now I’m not sure of, but for right now it’s obviously working for her.

If you’re a parent who is thinking of taking your kid to this tour but is worried that it might scar them, don’t worry about it. Seriously. None of the kids in the room had a clue that what Miley was doing with her pelvis on stage is normally only done by naked adults and the parents in the room seemed to get a kick out of it. I actually saw a mother with a gaggle of little girls smiling her face off as her daughters cluelessly watched Miley simulate sex on stage. It’s like a Disney movie that’s aimed at kids but winks at the parents. I don’t see kids winding up in therapy after seeing this, and if anything, it is probably empowering to see another young girl rock out on stage like that… but I wouldn’t be surprised if all of them were a little mouthier than usual on the car ride home to Anaheim.
