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.

  • “every rose has it's thorn” is nowhere near by guns n' roses, it's by poison and written by brett michaels. so not as cool.

  • HAHAHAHA! Seriously Molls, do a bit of homework before you start posting mis-information. This is your job sweetie – your job!!! Enough careless mistakes…treat this website like you actually give a shit, please.

  • Can you please explain ” I would have been here but I understand? ” Are these typos? sorry, I need more explanation.

  • “I don’t know a 17-year old that would have the guts to mouth off….”
    I don't think that's having guts, I think that's being a spoiled brat. Personally, I think she's a self obsessed attention whore but that probably comes from the way she's grown up.

  • She was saying that if she was her mom, she would have been at the show regardless of her illness, thus implying that her mom is somehow less loyal than she is.

  • it doesn't matter if the kids don't realize that what she was doing on-stage is inappropriate… it's up to the parents to not expose their children to it. i've know little girls that think it's great to dance sexy- gyrating around, stripping their shirts off, and repeating things they've heard because of seemingly meaningless shit. miley might be tamer than what they've been exposed to, but she's still acting like a slut in front of a young audience.

  • good post molls, i agree people need to kind of lay off her because kids dont get it and the adults are amused by it. if you go back and watch old Full House episodes they do the same thing with a LOT of their jokes. Its a great way to keep different age groups interested and honestly, the younger girls dont really get it anyway..

  • A 17 year old doesn't have to do everything Mummy & Daddy say anymore. You're in University by then, you can get a job and move out. You don't have to be “yes mum”, “no mum”.

  • I do not know the age of 17 who have the courage of the mouths of their parents in front of a room fans, family and people in the industry, but do not know the age of 17 who are able to capture the attention of a few hundred people just jerks around the stage and sing your heart. I mean, this is freakin 'unbelievable that comes off as spoiled. You can pay! Whether or not it will be some years from now I'm not sure, but for now it is clear that working for her.

  • A 17 year old would be in college, not university. I didn't say anything about having to do what your parents say though? I don't fully understand your comment, sorry.

  • :| fine, some people will start university when they're 17, but it's pretty irrelevant. I don't understand what dmarie's comment had to do with mine?

  • Just because they don't necessarily understand her pelvic thrusts and simulated humping, doesn't mean they won't IMITATE it on their own…therein lies the danger, Sharp Stuff.
