The war of words between Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor is getting nastier and more aggressive by the minute. Just hours after Miley made fun of Sinead’s history of mental illness, the latter took to her Facebook account to deliver two more open letters. Both waffle back and forth between being compassionate and vindictive, and both are must reads for anyone who has been following this budding feud.
Miley Cyrus may have learned to deal with negativity from the general public, but when it comes to motherly lectures, she’s not a champion at listening politely. This afternoon, the starlet responded to Sinead O’Connor’s open letter by a) bragging about her own accomplishments, b) making fun of the legendary singer for her history of mental illness and c) letting all of her fourteen million followers know she’s a defensive, mean-spirited jerk.
Most of Miley Cyrus’ ”Wrecking Ball” video may come off like a sexual explosion, but the non-sexual, zoom-in introduction is most definitely a shoutout to Sinead O’Connor’s iconic “Nothing Compares 2 U”. The singer confirmed it during a recent sitdown with Rolling Stone, and not surprisingly, O’Connor herself has something to say about that.
Anyone who has ever been to Las Vegas knows seeing someone cry in Sin City isn’t exactly unusual. With a very liberal attitude toward hardcore boozing, a ton of emotional twenty-one to twenty-five-year-olds and lots and lots of gambling, you can easily see how emotions often get the better of people. This weekend, Miley Cyrus added her name to that lengthy list of criers
The tiny minority of celeb gossip fans who actually liked Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth together and were hoping they’d backslide got dealt a cruel blow today when a moving truck showed up at the former Disney starlet’s house and carted away the rest of his possessions.
Ending an engagement is an ugly, messy, awful, soul-crushing, relief-filled, euphoric and miserable experience. In exchange for not making a dumb decision and spending the rest of your life with someone who doesn’t love you and/ or isn’t ready to get married, the dumper and the dumpee gain the privilege of doing such awkward tasks like deciding who gets the ring.
When statues are first created and placed on college campuses, they’re meant to last forever, but for a variety of reasons, that doesn't always happen. Penn State students found that out last summer when the tribute to Joe Paterno was removed, and now, the students of Grand Valley State University have found out the same thing, though for a far more comical reason.
There’s something about Cher’s words that seem extra harsh because of all the time she’s spent on stage. It’s one thing to be criticized by a member of the general public who doesn’t know shit about performing. That sting can be easily brushed off. It’s quite another to be slammed by a woman who has spent her entire life doing exactly what you’re trying to do to great success.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are dunzo. For real. You may think you’ve been down this road before thanks to the crazy number of break-up rumors that have blown around about the two since they first started dating four years ago, but we’re finally past the whispers and wild speculation stage.
In this year’s least surprising pop culture story, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have called off their engagement. Rumors have been swirling around news forums for months that the two had broken up and called off any potential for a wedding in the future, but it took until Monday for those rumors to be cemented as fact.
In case you didn’t know, Miley Cyrus does what she wants. Grind up on Robin Thicke with a foam finger? She’s in. Swing naked from a giant wrecking ball? Obviously down. Decorum, tact and calculated, reasoned decisions aren’t exactly her strong suit, which is probably why she got a little pissed off and decided to unfollow her own fiancé Liam Hemsworth of all people.
Whether you’ve watched the clip or not, by now you’re no doubt aware that Miley Cyrus disrobes in the music video for her new song “Wrecking Ball”. With nothing but her emotions, the pop star swings back and forth on the title object and at various points, kisses a sledgehammer and makes sexy eyes at the camera.
Miley Cyrus may have shed her clothes for much of the “Wrecking Ball” music video shoot, but that doesn’t mean she wants you to fixate on her nudity while you’re watching the video. Instead, you should take the lack of clothes and the tears and the aggressive symbolism as outer manifestations of the inner turmoil her soul is feeling while she’s singing the lyrics. Or some shit.
On the one hand, Vogue might not be the single classiest publication in the entire world, but their voice isn’t exactly hoodrich. All involved want to be thought of on the sophisticated side of fashion, and while Miley’s twerking might be trendy, it’s not exactly high class.
If the sight of Miley Cyrus grinding all over Robin Thicke during the VMAs didn't make you uncomfortable, perhaps seeing her french kiss a sledgehammer will do the trick. The young singer bears it all -- or most, anyway -- for her new video, which has her performing in her underwear at certain points, and mostly naked at others. She leaves her boots on. The video isn't quite as NSFW as Thicke's unrated "Blurred Lines" video, but it's close.
