[Rant] Miley Cyrus - Malibu

Post by: Montrez Rambo

Damn Miley! Going back from (C)unt to Country I see? Not exactly... We'll get to that in a minute... How is Malibu? Great! Sultry vocals, an indie/alternative flare and very, very good lyrics? The song just made me feel good... But, in my Big Freedia voice, "What happened... In that Billboard interview?"

[Discuss] Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz / "Dooo It"

Fresh off the back of her hosting gig at the MTV Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus announced the surprise (and immediate) release of her fifth album, Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz. "How very Beyonce of her!", the world cries.  But hold up, she actually one-upped the Queen by giving this experimental project away for FREE [Listen here]!

[Music Video] Madonna - "B!tch I'm Madonna"

Anyone expecting a big budget extravaganza, akin to that Taylor Swift created with her celeb-rich Bad Blood video, are going to be disappointed today. Sure, B!tch I'm Madonna does deliver on the hinted at A-list cameos- with Beyonce, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus all popping up- but they're in no way integrated into the spectacle, as was the case with Tay's video.

[Say What?] Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande Duet On "Don't Dream It's Over" Cover

Wait, whaat?! When did this even happen?!

Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande appear to have teamed up to record a backyard session for something called The Hippie Foundation (!?). It wasn't even one of their own songs they covered, nor was it something scandalous, sexual or contemporary! It was Crowded House's Don't Dream It's Over that got a double Diva remix. An odd choice from such young whippersnappers.

[Forbes' Rich List 2014] Diva's Making Money!

This post is about something which is of no real concern to us plebs. Like really, what does it matter that these divas have gotten even more filthy rich over the period June 2013 to June 2014? Still, human nature is such that we are all as nosy as a Proboscis monkey/anteater cross, so let me just go right on ahead and post Forbes' tally of top earning female musicians.

For those wondering how they calculated the figures for said list, check out their site [here]. Even so, I'd take these figures with a pinch of these-don't-affect-my-life-in-any-way-so-who-really-cares. Though, if any of you lovely Divas are reading this, how bout buying me a diamond necklace. You clearly can afford it and I obviously deserve it....

Regarder la liste, peeps :

[Watch] Miley Cyrus Countryfies OutKast's "Hey Ya"

Amidst the shock visuals, protruding tongue and awful choice in leotards, Miley Cyrus occasionally likes to remind those too caught up in the image that she actually has an interesting set of pipes on her.

Anyone who has listened to Miley's music, ignoring the controversy (which let's be real, she courts), knows that this lady can sing- we're all agreed on that, right? But she once again demonstrated this, and some artistry (if we are to believe she had a hand in this reworking), by covering OutKast's Hey Ya during her 2014 Bangerz tour.

Take a listen! You may be surprised....

[Spam Post] Live Performances From Black Girls Rock, The EMAs and The X-Factor

There has been a whole host of live events that I haven't managed to cover on the blog- most notably Black Girls Rock and the European Music Awards. I did consider just letting the events float by, undocumented, but decided you guys deserve more! So here goes!

[Album discussion] Lady Gaga Should Totally Have Recorded Miley Cyrus's "Someone Else"

The title pretty much says it all, but I'll elaborate a little. Nesting in the bowels of Miley Cyrus's Bangerz is one of my favourite songs off of the album: Someone Else.

The feisty break-up song, produced by Mike Made It, is ably handled by Cyrus- so I'm not trying to be shady by suggesting Lady Gaga should have sung it. In fact, the track houses one of the best vocals on the album; showing how diverse Miley's voice can be as it constantly morphs and changes as the track progresses. However, I can't help but hear the Gagster when listening to it.

[Watch] Miley Cyrus Smashes "Wrecking Ball" Perforamce @ SNL

We knew she could do it, but she proved it for reals when she took new single Wrecking Ball to the Saturday Night Live studio this weekend. No craziness or outrageous outfits, just Miley and a microphone, singing her heart out.

Wrecking Ball still sounded slightly out of the Diva's live range, but the rasp that came with those pushed notes worked well with the song's melodramatic lyrics. Where the Diva's comfortable belt really lies is within its mid-range, which she demoed during an acoustic rendition of Bangerz lead single We Can't Stop. If she stopped the smoking and the drinking the voice probably be more elastic, but I don't think that's on the cards any time soon!

Check out both performances below!

[Watch] Miley Cyrus Gives A Raw Rendition Of "Wrecking Ball" @ 2013 iHeartRadio Festival

Miley Cyrus isn't doing anything to prove those who only recently became aware of her existence via the controversial things that she does, that she isn't anything but another plastic-pop star.

At the iHeartRadio Festival, the Diva had a perfect opportunity- with the live rendition of Wrecking Ball- to at least show detractors that there was a capable voice behind the gimmicks. Instead this happened [watch the video]. Wavering melody, pushed vocals- with a terrible attempt at improv at the song's closing- and a generally unpolished delivery ensued. We've heard that Cryus can sing, but performances like these aren't doing anything to enlighten those unaware of it.

Though I think the biggest problem highlighted by this, and the We Can't Stop performance, is the grating tone of her voice. It's something which isn't so apparent on the mastered versions, but becomes almost unbearable in this live set.

So was this a case of the emotion of her recent breakup getting to her, or is that just an excuse for a poor and lazy performer not putting in the effort?

[Music Video] Miley Cyrus "Wrecking Ball"

miley cyrus crying wrecking ball

The follow-up to Miley Cyrus's publicity generating single We Can't Stop has dropped! Thankfully new song Wrecking Ball finds the singer changing gear and delivering a tune with a little more depth than the song that preceded it.

The new song also gives Miley a chance to show everyone that she possesses a set of unique and capable pipes (I can't wait to hear her sing this live). I just wish she hadn't gone for shock value with the nudity in the video because I think the faux-scandal it's probably going to generate might overshadow the song itself.

But whatever, the Dr. Luke and Cirkut produced song is a corker and that's good enough for moi!

[Parody] Bart Baker Takes Aim At Taylor Swift And Miley Cyrus

I am a sucker for a parody, so it's insane- or rather you guys are lucky-that I haven't flooded the site with reams of them by now! Heaven knows there are gajillion of them out there on the interwebs poking fun at our lovely Divas. Well today this changes, and I send out fair warning to all to expect this to become a regular feature on the blog, hosted under the "parody" label.

[Watch] Miley Cyrus Embarrases Herself @ 2013 MTV VMAs

robin thick miley cyrus twerk

Disney Club alumni, Miley Cyrus continues her crusade to shock America (and her dad, I assume) in her very public rebellion against her once clean cut image.

Performing We Can't Stop at the 2013 VMAs, this new new attitude was out in force- as was her tongue, ergh(!). But the bad vocals and provocative clothes weren't all, she had one last trick up her juvenile sleeve to really make sure all attention was directed her way come press write-ups. And that ploy involved Marvin Gaye's biggest fan, Robin Thicke (the E is optional).

[Video Spam] Watch New Music From Fatih Evans, India Arie, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Miley Cyrus!

We all know I'm pretty terrible at keeping on top of new releases and such- which is crazy considering I "run" a music blog. But I'm not sure if anyone else even caught the release of this new video from Faith Evans. Knowing my luck, it's an old song/video and Faith's team has only just posted it to her Vevo but since I've never heard it before, I'm posting it!

Dumb- no, I haven't resorted to name calling, that's the song's name- is an energetic, Motown-inspired romp, which pairs Faith's raspy and soulful voice with a quick tempo and playful sound to dizzying effect. Yep, the video is #BUUUUUUUDDGET but a quick wiki tells me why: the song isn't from a new album but from a compilation album, entitled R&B Divas, which was released last year. So I was kind of right and wrong about the song; it's old, but the video is new.

Still, I'm glad to have our first lady of Bad Boy back!

[Review] Diva's Halloween Costume Extravaganza

Yesterday was that special time of year where one could go out dressed like whatever the F***k one wanted, and not get committed or sectioned for their efforts. Yes people, yesterday was Halloween! How spooky!

Now if you're a misery guts like me (see the gifs below to get  a sense of where I'm coming from) you would have done zilch to mark the occasion. Well that's not strictly true, I sat in watching Adams Family and Polyester (Don't ask). I was planning on changing the banner of the site to somehow mark the day, but even that proved too much for my lazy behind.

But our Divas are a more exuberant and festive bunch than yours truly, and they didn't let us down; getting into the unholy spirit in the way only rich people with too much free time on their hands can. So let's check out what our lovely ladies were serving up on the catwalk of Halloween 2012!
