Pharrell Williams spends most of his time behind the camera, gawking at models as they shimmy, gyrate and pantomime riding a motorcycle to the singer’s funky second Girl single, “Come Get It Bae.” But what keeps the video from being an homage to George Michael’s “Too Funky” clip in 1992, when he leered at models through a camera lens, is Miley Cyrus’ appearance midway through. That’s when Williams steps out from behind the camera and joins his scantily clad guest – who is apparently on an overly caffeinated sugar high, judging from the amount of white powder she pours in her smiley-face cup – for some synchronized choreography to the song’s bridge and mean mugging in the end.
One of Williams’ songs and videos recently got its own homage when “Weird Al” Yankovic turned the singer’s inescapable 2013 hit “Happy” into a celebration of all things gauche on the Mandatory Fun track “Tacky.” While the parody points out any number of poor-taste behaviors, the video mirrors Williams’ 24-hour star-studded affair replacing the original’s celebrities (Steve Carell, Magic Johnson, Tyler, the Creator) with, well, weirder celebrities like Jack Black, Margaret Cho and Kristen Schaal.
But that hasn’t stopped Williams or his friends, who recently appeared as a guest on a horn-laden, dancey song, “She Came to Give It to You,” for Usher. That song, which also features Nicki Minaj, will likely appear on Usher’s upcoming eighth record.
This should not surprise you, but Miley Cyrus does not give a f–k. It’s her house, she can do what she want to.
So when this photo emerged of Miley flicking off some photographers, I just had to have a little giggle. Because of course she’s giving the paps the finger. Of course she has rainbow polyester extensions in her hair. Of course she’s covering her pimple with a sparkly butterfly adhesive. And of course her eyes are still on the road — just because she’s glittery and attitudey doesn’t mean she’s not responsible!
Where was Miley going in her SUV after leaving Chateau Marmont? My guess is that she was driving out to the desert to spend the night decorating cacti and sleeping with kangaroo rats. That’s why she woke up topless in the sand.
Miley Cyrus has taken to Instagram to share a topless photo of herself after going unusually quiet on her social media accounts.
In fact, Mi-Cy had been so silent on Twitter and Instagram that an internet hoax suggested that Cyrus had ‘died’, with the rumour soon spreading like wild fire.
Fans soon starting fearing the worst as her pages remained inactive since July 18, but in true Miley fashion, that star was back with a bang as she updated her accounts with a number of snaps today (July 22).
One particular photo caught our eye which shows the 21-year old posing in just a pair of denim Daisy Dukes with her back to the camera.
The star is clearly topless in the image, flashing her assets to the desert, with one cheeky fan joking: “Turn around girl.”
She also posted a number of pics of herself playing around with some hair accessories, while also sharing an image of herself laying on the ground alongside a chalk drawing, captioning the snap: “#ladytonguecontroller.”
It’s good to have you back Miley!
IT seems Miley Cyrus is still finding it hard to come to terms with her pet Floyd’s sudden death.
But the Bangerz singer has recently hired a dog psychic to help her get over the tragic loss of the pooch in April.
And what better way to overcome a mournful meltdown than to receive telepathic messages from her dead dog.
Hollywood animal medium Melissa Bacelar revealed to The Mirror: “It was particularly hard as [Miley] wasn’t there when Floyd died, so there would have been a huge amount of guilt.
“I connect with the dog telepathically. Some will give me actual words but most of the time I will get images and feelings, which I then pass on to the owner.”
And having recently got a new tattoo in memory of the playful pooch, it’s no wonder the 21-year-old star is still in mourning.
Miley and her fellow friends sported the new tattoo on Instagram a few weeks ago, where a series of snaps were uploaded to show their love for her late pet Floyd.
“#withalittlehelpfrommyfwends #housepartygreentonguefloydtats,” the Wrecking Ball singer added.
Billy Ray Cyrus’ daughter has several other tattoos, but this one is proven to be the most sentimental.
We’re still so sorry for you’re loss, Miley.
“The turkey with the longest neck is the one everyone is shooting at”
Miley Cyrus is mostly known as the tongue-wagging pop provocateur and former Hannah Montana child star who can’t be tamed, but as she showed Sunday night during her Bangerz Tour NBC television special, she could probably have a second career as a life coach should she ever want to. Unlike rock-docs from her pop peers Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and One Direction, Cyrus’ two-hour special stuck mostly to the music, but between dancing on stage with giant stuffed animals, covering OutKast and flying around the arena on a giant hotdog, she had some candid and — dare we say it — inspirational thoughts to share with the camera.
On being a pusher: “I think when people watch the show, my true fans, it’s just a bunch of kids, like, ready to party. They’re not sitting down, they’re not there trying to look cool in front of their friends … I see the faces and I feel like they’re learning. It feels safe in there. And there’s not many places where you’re around 20,000 people and feel safe. I think my fans feel safe in that room with me. I feel like they think that I’m some sort of a leader, and I’m giving them the push to go forward.”
On challenging standards of beauty by taking ugly selfies: “A lot of people say they truly don’t care what other people think but … [I] don’t,” Cyrus says before discussing her fondness for making weird faces in pictures, which she says encourages her fans to get weird on their own time. “Kids are posting these pictures that are really inspiring to other kids because it’s beauty in a totally different way.”
On being a media target: Cyrus says her new life motto is something country singer Kris Kristofferson told her father, Billy Ray Cyrus: “The turkey with the longest neck is the one everyone is shooting at.” We’re not entirely sure what that means, but in Cyrus Speak it probably translates into something about how the more she accomplishes, the more negative attention she’ll attract. In other words, haters gonna hate.
On how to deal with grief: “I think if I really [accept that he's dead], he might actually go at some point, which I don’t really want,” Cyrus says of the passing of her dog Floyd, who died on April Fool’s Day. “I have to not make myself sick over it because that’s what I did at first. I loved him so much. I really shut down more than I’ve ever let myself. You can try to move on, your shell can continue [to go] on stage every night, but internally I wasn’t [there].”
On helping out the mere mortals in the audience: While performing the ballad “Adore You,” Cyrus fires up the kiss cam and zooms in on couples who follow her instructions to make out. Fans are pretty shy at first, but once one couple goes for it, the rest start to feel comfortable enough to lock lips. “It’s hard being me, but it’s hard being them, too. It’s hard being a normal person and different,” she says of trying to make fans comfortable enough to get their smooch on. “The universe gives this responsibility to people who can handle it, and I believe I can handle it.”
On what to take away from adversity: “When people say everything happens for a reason, it’s more how you’re going to deal with something and knowing yourself more than you did [before],” she says, while reflecting on the wild year she’s had and the months she’s spent on the road. “I do think I know myself more than I did.”
Miley Cyrus has made no secret of her obsession with the Flaming Lips: She’s invited the band onstage several times, recorded with them and even made a playlist of her favorite Lips tracks for Rolling Stone. “Once you listen to the them, it’s hard to listen to anything else,” she told us.
She’s such a big fan, in fact, that Cyrus recently filmed a video on her sick bed with them (she was hospitalized earlier this year for an allergic reaction to an antibiotic) for a trippy clip that frontman Wayne Coyne is calling “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain.” “This is the video we originally intended to be for a song that has a reference to the drug LSD,” says Coyne. “We were lucky enough to get a couple of hours with a bedridden Miley Cyrus. And even though she was still quite ill, she was full of laughs and great absurd suggestions.” The band also recruited Moby, who Coyne says “created an enduring, freaky character” at the musician’s Hollywood home.
Coyne explains the concept of the video:
“The video story is something like this: Moby is an evil, power-hungry cult leader. He wants the world’s most valuable (according to our story) psychedelic supernatural possession… John F. Kennedy’s brain….the brain contains the original formula for the drug LSD!!!
Miley Cyrus has the magic brain!!! And Moby enlists a nympho Manson girl-type blonde superfreak to go steel the brain from Cyrus.
She steals the brain from Cyrus while Cyrus is still in bed in a drug-induced coma. Cyrus finally wakes up and is mega-pissed that her BRAIN has been stolen. She enlists a burned-faced Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot ( that are hovering in a nearby spaceship) to hunt down the blond superfreak that stole her brain. They have a relentless pursuit, all the while Cyrus laments the loss of her magic brain and Moby gains powerful rainbows from hell. In the end, the blond superfreak kills Santa and Bigfoot and a baby mole ends up with the brain…”
Oh yeah. And the Flaming Lips are disguised as rainbows, mushrooms and flowers watching from the sky room where a giant diamond explosion happens.”
Miley Cyrus is honoring her dearly departed pet with new ink. The “We Can’t Stop” singer and some of her friends got matching tattoos of her late dog Floyd during a house party on Saturday, July 5.
“#withalittlehelpfrommyfwends,” the 21-year-old wrote via Instagram. #housepartygreentonguefloydtats.”
Cyrus posted several pictures while getting the tattoo on a couch and when the final product was finished. Her tattoo, placed on the left side of her body, included a design of Floyd with a speech bubble that read: “With a little help from my friends.”
Cyrus was left heartbroken after her adorable Alaskan Klee Kai pooch passed away in April, reportedly from a coyote attack. One month later, she mourned the loss in an emotional note posted to her Twitter account.
“I keep asking why would the world take my sweet boy from me? I’m just a baby myself…I depend on my mother still.
She is the one at the end of the day I want to hold me when I’m sad, scared, lonely,” she wrote in the rambling passage. “I was Floyd’s mommy. I don’t know when the regret and the guilt will fade. I don’t know if it ever will.”
“I feel like I let my boy down. My job was to protect him and I’m not a person that takes failure lightly,” she continued. “Today is one of those days where I can’t open the curtains to see the sun…open the windows to hear the world going on around me because to be honest I hate the fact that the world’s still spinning. I want it to stop…I want everyone’s heart to break the way my heart is breaking.”
Cyrus’ mom Tish tried to fill the void with another dog named Moonie at the time, but the singer eventually decided to give him away. Last week, she adopted a new Collie dog named Emu.
Demi Lovato has defended Miley Cyrus, saying that none of her critics know the real her.
The ‘Heart Attack’ singer said that people forget Cyrus is a separate person from her Hannah Montana character.
Speaking to We Love Pop magazine, Lovato said:
“I guess my transition was a little easier because I went straight to rehab. I didn’t twerk – I just went to rehab.”
She continued: “You know what, I think the world needs to get over the fact that [Miley] was Hannah Montana when she was 16.
“Nobody knows her, nobody really knows who I am, and the same with Selena [Gomez] and Jonas [Brothers] and everyone that has grown up in front of the public eye. We’re adults now.”
Lovato also spoke about Cyrus’s controversial antics on stage, suggesting: “I think she knows what she’s doing.
“A lot of artists take that route of shock value and that’s fine, but I think she has such an incredible voice that’s overshadowed by some of the things that she’s doing. I’ll always love her – she’s been one of my friends since I was 14.
“Everyone is on their different journeys and she’s having fun, she’s being who she is – so power to her.”
Dolly Parton also defended her goddaughter recently, saying that Cyrus will “make the right choices”.
“She’s had to go a little drastic now and then just to prove her point, but I’ve got a lot of faith in her and I’m hoping she does great ‘cos she is gifted and special,” Parton claimed.
Shailene Woodley thinks that bullies should be a way bigger deal to parents than whatever Miley Cyrus is doing. The actress who plays the cancer-stricken and love-stricken Hazel in “The Fault In Our Stars” was Vanity Fair‘s July cover star, and she defended Miley in some of the outtakes from her cover story interview.
What it boils down to: Miley is just doing herself and it’s nobody’s business but her own.
“Miley isn’t rude or mean or cruel to anyone in her actions,” Shailene said. “She just does herself. And regardless of whether you agree with what she’s doing or not, it’s none of your business what she does. She’s not in the world doing mean things.”
“Why are all these parents or all these people freaking out about Miley being herself?” Shailene continued. “If you don’t want your kids to watch it, you know, you can change that situation at home, but don’t make a big deal of what she’s doing. Make a big deal about the bullies at school who are beating kids up.”
She may not consider herself a feminist, but she’s got strong-minded opinions about the way society judges young women and their behavior. You tell ‘em Shailene!
