Miley reigns as MTV’s Artist of the Year … and here’s how she took the throne.
Like all revolutions, this one started with a single shot.
On March 20, 2013, when Miley Cyrus posted a video of her twerking to J Dash’s “WOP,” we had no way of knowing it was the preamble to her Declaration of Independence, that with each posterior pop she was further distancing herself from her Disney-fied past and beginning her bid to become the most audacious star in pop. Mostly we were just wondering why she was wearing a unicorn onesie.
After all, at the time, Miley was in a weird place. She was in the middle of an on-again/off-again engagement to Liam Hemsworth, had been hanging out with topless dancers and Tyler, the Creator and was — in theory — working on an “explicit” new album, the follow-up to 2010′s Can’t Be Tamed, which had the ignominy of being her first not to debut at #1.
In short, the writing was on the wall.
And yet, nine months after that twerk video was released, by hook or crook and through sheer willpower alone, Miley Cyrus has completed one of the most remarkable (and successful) reinventions in recent memory. She returned to the top of the charts with Bangerz, scored two of the year’s biggest singles (and videos), crossed over to hip-hop, created no shortage of controversy, and gave us one of the most memorable VMA performances of all time. Those are, of course, just the shorthand highlights.
Now she reigns as MTV’s Artist of 2013, an accolade that certainly could serve as one final kiss-off to her critics. But unlike, say, Kanye West, Miley’s not interested in settling scores (“I don’t pay attention to the negative,” she told MTV News), rather, she seems hell-bent on continuing to carve out her niche in the world of pop. And, just like the aforementioned twerk video, she’s determined to keep doing it as if the outside world didn’t exist at all.
In a way, that’s the most amazing thing about Miley’s return: by all accounts, she’s calling the shots, and she continues to get them right. There were probably some in her camp who thought it didn’t make sense to work with Mike WiLL on Bangerz, go for broke on “Wrecking Ball,” or bring controlled chaos to the VMA stage. Yet, Miley pressed on, either because she’s too young to understand why those concerns were warranted, or, after a decade in the business, too smart to consider them. Probably both. Like her fans, she’s of an age where genres don’t matter, and arbiters of acceptability matter even less. Unlike her fans, she’s been working since she was 12, long enough to realize that the only person who knows what she wants is her.
Consider, for example, her EMA performance of “Wrecking Ball” in November. It was the first time she’d graced an MTV stage since the VMAs, and, well, let’s just say expectations were high. But rather than go for shock, Miley instead opted for awe, delivering a powerhouse vocal performance in which zero foam fingers were harmed. Of course, less than an hour later, she’d smoke a joint on stage, mostly because she thought her fans would love it. It was unpredictable, it was over the top, it was, in a sense, the perfect example of her ethos: Don’t do what’s expected of you, do what you want to do.
It’s sort of brilliant, really. And yet, few in her position have the smarts (or the stones) to put that anti-plan into action. Miley does. And because of that, she operates within a unique space within the pop sphere: unlike many of her contemporaries, she seems real.
Ultimately, that’s what separates her from the rest of the field. Compared to the Arianas and the Selenas of the world, Miley’s decisions don’t feel as if they’re the end product of branding meetings and focus groups. Instead, they are unfiltered (and unhinged) to the max. And sure, both Katy and Gaga featured rappers on their respective albums this year, but they felt more like after-the-fact accessories. Miley, on the other hand, seemed to include French Montana or Big Sean on Bangerz mainly because she was, first and foremost, a fan. Let the critics cry about cultural appropriation … Miley’s just going to keep doing her thing, partially because she’s just 21, but mostly because she spent the first 10 years of her career doing anything but.
Make no mistake, Miley’s independence has been hard fought; and now that she’s the one in control, good luck trying to wrest it away from her. It would be easy to chalk up her 2013 success to pure luck, but that would be selling her short. Perhaps it’s time we all give her credit, not just for making all the calls, but doing so without fear or hesitation. Will others attempt to replicate her IDGAF-style career reinvention in 2014? Almost certainly. Will they succeed? Probably not. If we’ve learned anything this year, there’s only one Miley Cyrus.
And to think, it all started with one twerk video.
This morning, MTV anointed Miley Cyrus with the title “best artist of 2013″ and, whether or not one agrees with the network’s assessment, it’s worth a look at the reasoning behind the honor. In a press release, MTV noted that Cyrus “dominated both the charts and headlines this year with the release of the critically acclaimed #1 album, Bangerz, two #1 worldwide smash singles, “We Can’t Stop,” and “Wrecking Ball,” two jaw dropping performances during the 2013 “MTV Video Music Awards” and “MTV EMA”, an original MTV documentary “Miley: The Movement,” as well as a memorable turn as a host and performer on Saturday Night Live” and that the “criteria for the editorial lists included album and single sales, touring, airplay, social media, Internet and overall impact.”
The one thing that’s missing from that list of criteria is any discussion of the quality of the art that comes from the artist in question. This is not to say that Miley Cyrus’ work this year was or wasn’t the best music of the year, or that she was or wasn’t the musical artist to produce the best material — merely that MTV’s definition of the word “best” is, in a substantial way, different from most people’s.
Not that MTV’s definition — “best” meaning “most profitable/most listened to/most talked about” — is wrong.
After all, the network’s ranking is of the best artists, not the best songs or albums. And, as Miley Cyrus herself has demonstrated, there’s a lot more to being a musical artist than making music. The deeper meaning of MTV’s decision-making, if there is one, is about the evolving definition of “artist,” not of “best.” (“Of” and “2013″ are O.K. too.) For better or worse, in the age of the personal brand, great songs, albums, performances and stage presence — or any of the other markers of traditional music greatness — aren’t enough. And if being an artist is a matter of controlling one’s image, driving conversation and garnering fan interest, it’s hard to argue that anyone in 2013 was more “skillful, talented, or successful” than Cyrus.
Miley Cyrus Named a Finalist for Time’s Person of the Year
A couple of hackers may have conspired to have Miley Cyrus win Time magazine’s online Person of the Year vote, but the pop star is actually being considered for the magazine’s annual honor, making Time’s list of 10 finalists, it was revealed Monday morning.
Along with Cyrus, other contenders for Time’s 2013 Person of the Year are Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Pope Francis, 2012 winner President Barack Obama, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, NSA leaker Edward Snowden and gay rights activist Edith Windsor.
Before Thanksgiving, Cyrus was leading the online vote as the person who most influenced the news this year for better or worse, with 29 percent of the vote. But her success may have been due to the efforts of two hackers who were rigging the vote for the pop star. Cyrus didn’t end up winning the online vote, placing third with 279,300 votes, or 16.3 percent of the total. The online winner, announced last Thursday, was Egypt’s Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who received 449,596 votes, or 26.2 percent of the total, beating out Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who received 356,771 votes or 20.8 percent.
Still, Time’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2013 Person of the Year, revealing their choice on Wednesday’s “Today” show.
Time managing editor Nancy Gibbs appeared on “Today” on Monday to reveal the 10 finalists, saying of Cyrus’ inclusion: “Power is not just political. It can be cultural. It can be spiritual. She came in like a wrecking ball … the most watched video of the year and at a time when we are living with an explosion of exhibitionism, since we all now carry cameras with us at all times, she is a symbol.”
Miley Cyrus announces Bangerz UK tour dates for 2014
Miley Cyrus has announced that her Bangerz tour will be coming to the UK in 2014.
After performing at London’s O2 Arena on 6 May, the singer will also play in Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham.
The UK dates will follow a 38 show American tour, which was announced during an appearance on US TV show Saturday Night Live.
Cyrus, 20, recently said she is “one of the biggest feminists in the world.”
In the exclusive interview with Newsbeat she added that she “tells women to not be scared of anything.”
The singer also said her on-stage persona and revealing outfits were all part of her act and that she doesn’t worry if people think badly of her controversial performances because she knows she is a “good person”.
Earlier this year, the American singer became the first artist of 2013 to top both the UK album and singles charts in the same week with her single Wrecking Ball and latest album Bangerz.
The album also went to number one in the US Billboard chart when it was released in October.
Tickets for Miley Cyrus’ UK shows go on sale on Friday 13 December, with more Bangerz tour dates are expected to be added.
Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz 2014 UK tour dates are as follows:
O2 Arena, London – 6 May
First Direct Arena, Leeds – 10
SSE Hydro Arena, Glasgow – 12
Phones 4U Arena, Manchester – 14
Birmingham NIA, Birmingham – 16
24th Annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas (December 7th, 2013)
Lil’ Kim released the track listing for her latest mixtape, Hard Core 2K13, over the weekend. At first glance a song titled “Work Da Pole” looks like the most exciting prospect, but wait, there’s a collaboration with Miley Cyrus there too! Miley will feature on “Bad Bitch,” which sounds just wonderful. Lil’ Kim had planned to premiere Hard Core 2K13 last Friday (that’s Black Friday, perhaps another reference to her big ol’ feud with Nicki Minaj) but the release date has been pushed back.
Hopefully not for long though.
Katy Perry On “Sweet” Miley Cyrus: “She Has Got Some Big Balls!”
Katy Perry has described Miley Cyrus as a “really sweet” while also praising her for having “some big balls” after watching the ‘Wrecking Ball’ star’s rise to stardom over the past year.
The ‘Roar’ singer says she and fellow female pop stars like Miley and Lady Gaga don’t like the fact that their music gets pitted against one another at the moment, and describes herself as a “huge supporter” of her pop peers.
“There’s a lot of heavy attention on ‘pop diva’ right now and competition and none of us like that,” Katy revealed to the Toronto Sun this week. “But I’m a huge supporter of music.
“Of course I had pre-ordered [Lady Gaga's] album. I bought Sky Ferreira’s album. I bought Miley’s. I’m interested,” Katy explained.
The ‘Unconditionally’ singer went on to open up more about her opinion on ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer Miley Cyrus, who has sparked controversy several times this year with her music videos and performances.
“Miley’s really a sweet girl and she has got some big balls,” Katy explained. “She just doesn’t care what anyone thinks.
Last week it was announced that Katy Perry is the first confirmed performer for the BRIT Awards 2014 on 19th February.
Katy Perry is set to perform live on Saturday 7th January for the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball 2013.
Tinie Tempah has admitted that he thinks 21-year-old twerkster Miley Cyrus knows exactly what she’s doing – you know, by being all controversial and twerking on everything that moves.
Speaking to 3AM, the 25-year-old rapper said:”It’s really hard for somebody in the public eye to grow up.
“Everything happened with me at kind of like a perfect age. I was 19, 20. I had already experienced enough life doing my thing.
“I was old enough to know what I’m doing. But when I think of Miley Cyrus, I think about the fact that everyone would always see this girl as Hannah Montana.
“And it’s very difficult, even when you look at Justin Beiber – it’s almost like no matter what he does, you’ll always think of the guy with the hair over his eyes singing Baby.
“It’s not easy,” Tinie continues. “I sympathise with them. I do think sometimes you have to go a bit extreme to kind of get people’s attention. And i think that’s exactly what she’s done.
“I don’t by any means think she’s stupid.
“If she was why would we have not heard of Hannah Montana having a break down?
“She’s branding herself as Miley Cyrus, she’s picking the right moment to do the right thing. It’s not like you ever catch her off camera or hear about her in a private club.
“That never happens. It’s only when she’s on TV, at an awards show. She picks the right moment to do things to get people talking. And I’m not saying I condone it or anything like that but when you look at it objectively – she clearly has a plan.
“She’s clearly trying to get everyone talking about her. And everyone is talking about her so therefore she’s getting what she wants out of it and her album is selling really well and people and people are buying her music so it seems like the plan is working.”
Miley Cyrus’ Entertainer of the Year is Pharrell Williams
Miley Cyrus had quite a year. As she told Entertainment Weekly, she planned on 2013 being the best year of her life, and she certainly lived up to that lofty goal. Cyrus is one of EW’s Entertainers of the Year, and when asked who she would pass that honor on to, she agreed with one of EW’s picks.
“I really think Pharrell [Williams] is the entertainer of the year,” Cyrus told EW. “Not only for what he did on my record but for what he did in the music industry in general with ‘Blurred Lines’ and Daft Punk.” Indeed, Williams contributed “#GETITRIGHT” to Cyrus’ album Bangerz and provided lots of guidance for her sonic reinvention.
In Williams, Cyrus found a kindred spirit. ”He and I were kind of on the same path, and I think that’s why he and I connected,” she said. “He really feels like a brother—it’s more than just us working together. No one had heard from me or him in a minute, and we were just kind of brewing up what we wanted to do next and what we wanted to drop on people. He and I were on kind of a journey together, and I couldn’t be more happy for him and what he accomplished this year in everything—in fashion, in art, everything he does. There’s not a better person I would wish that on. He’s the best person I’ve ever gotten to watch and learn from. I’ve grown up in this industry, and I’ve watched a lot of people, and I think that’s where I learned most of what I know. He’s one of the greatest mentors I’ve ever had, and who he is as a person is equally as amazing as who he is as an entertainer.”
It’s a mutual admiration society between Williams and Cyrus. Back in January, Williams talked up Bangerz to EW long before the release of the single “We Can’t Stop.” ”Miley Cyrus is gonna be amazing,” he told EW. “I’ll tell you what right now: She is a force, and no one knows it, and I’m so happy for her. This is a girl who has been fighting for a very long time and loyal to the brand that gave her her start. But she had to break out of not only that realm but also the glass image that she felt everybody was keeping her encased in. She’s going from beautiful caterpillar to giant butterfly with vigor. She’s really that. Her vocal ability is far beyond what anyone thinks. She is very knowledgeable—she can quote the last Wacka Flocka song, and she can tell you when Dolly Parton released ‘Jolene.’ She is nothing short of a phenomenon. To see her go is amazing to watch. She’s not afraid of anything.” Cyrus certainly proved him right.
