Five reasons everyone should see the Miley Cyrus 'Bangerz' tour

As Miley Cyrus herself surely anticipated, the internet has embraced her simulating fellatio on a man in a Bill Clinton costume as the micro-scandal to help promote the start of the Bangerz Tour. I was there in Vancouver on Valentines Day, and I completely missed this bit of theater. Probably because I was in the throes of sensory overload—the kind of state one hopes for but so often finds missing from a proper arena show. (READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE.)

In the issue of Entertainment Weekly arriving on stands on Thursday, I write all about the mind-frying experience that is Miley’s new tour, and how persuasively she sells the genre-bending songs from Bangerz live. But here are five reasons to buy a ticket, even—or especially—if you think Miley’s little better than a human meme. And they have almost nothing to do with fake Clinton fellatio.

The crowd: If you’ve got any curiosity at all about teen girls and what intrigues and excites them in popular culture in 2014, you can see thousands of them respond to Miley in real time. (There weren’t only teen girls at the show in Vancouver, but as grown man who wore khakis there, I can tell you that I was very much in the minority.) They’re entertained, rather than dully influenced, by the spectacle of the teenage id. And they get to enjoy it free from the looming eye of boys, schoolmasters, and parents. Most importantly, they’re fun—fully engaged and raring to party.

The comedy: Miley, a great Saturday Night Live host with years of lowbrow comedy training in the Disney coal mines, sends herself up better than anyone else could. She starts the show by sliding down a giant tongue, landing smartly, and giving a friendly wave, then proceeds to rain down gag props and costumes, taking every opportunity to undercut her own tawdry image. How can you not laugh when she wears a shirt covered by her own face, with her actual butt sticking out right under it? READ FULL STORY

Are you in on the Miley movement? MTV releases trailer for new Miley Cyrus documentary -- VIDEO

That’s right–Miley’s still got you talking, and she’s looking forward to keeping it that way for a couple of more weeks.

In anticipation for her new album, Bangerz, MTV releases a one-minute trailer for Miley: The Movement, the one-hour documentary special that depicts the day-to-day of the artist formerly known as Hannah Montana.

Packed with cameo appearances, from her We Can’t Stop producer Mike WiLL Made It and Britney Spears, the special takes a behind-the-scenes approach to capturing Miley before and after the MTV VMAs performance as well as her musical influences for her latest project.

“Everyone takes the VMAs so serious,” Cyrus tells Spears in the trailer. “I just wanna come out and shoot a hot dog gun, I just wanna have fun!”

Miley: The Movement premieres Wednesday, October 2, 10p/9c on MTV. Watch the trailer below:

Miley Cyrus speaks about 'Wrecking Ball' video for first time

If you’re not one of the over 44 million who’ve already seen Miley Cyrus’ video for Wrecking Ball already, when you take a look, peek into her eyes, not her assets.

At least that’s what the Queen of Twerk stated in her interview with Z100’s Elvis Duran on Wednesday, calling in from a London photo shoot. “I think the video is much more,” she said. “If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds.”

Already garnering over 44 million views on YouTube, earning the record for most views gained in 24 hours, the Terry Richardson-directed clip begins with a close-up of Cyrus’ face as a tear rolls down her cheeks, followed by more provocative imagery of her licking a sledgehammer and swinging naked on a wrecking ball.

Cyrus added, “if people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means, it is so vulnerable. … If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record. It was a lot harder to actually do the video than it was to even record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.”

As she  gears up for the release of Bangerz this October, featuring appearances from Britney Spears, Big Sean, and Nelly, and weathers the controversy and hype surrounding her latest video and MTV VMA performance, Miley’s apparently not sweating it.

“Kind of anything that I do at this point it becomes such this big deal and for me,” she said. “I’m just having fun, and whatever people label it as, it doesn’t really matter, I’m just having fun.”

In other words, she’s just being Miley.

Miley Cyrus beats One Direction's most-viewed record

miley-cyrus-wrecking-ball

Oh, it’s on.

In June, Miley Cyrus’s Gaga-on-acid video for “We Can’t Stop” racked up 10.7 million views in just 24 hours, giving it more play in a single day than any other video in Vevo history. One month later, British boy band One Direction rudely wrested away Miley’s crown (and, perhaps, her skull made of french fries) when their own video for “Best Song Ever” won 10.9 million views in one day.

Now, though, things have come full circle, thanks to Miley’s boobs newest surreal mini-movie.

Miley Cyrus triumphed at the VMAs -- but where does she go from here?

From where I sat—in front of a screen, reading Twitter—it was as if I could see the Miley Cyrus backlash building in real time, as delighted though distanced cataloging of Miley’s outrageousness gave way to critiques of her hip hop appropriations. (You might’ve seen something different depending on who you follow, or whether you bother with Twitter at all.)

Jon Caramanica of the New York Times posted an early thoughtful response on Sunday night, calling the performance a “clumsy white appropriation of black culture.” The next morning, Jody Rosen at Vulture wrote that Miley’s “act tipped over into what we may as well just call racism,” specifically mentioning the “thickly-set African-American” dancer whose behind Cyrus slapped and stuck her face in. By lunchtime, the idea that Miley has a “race problem” surfaced on the Huffington Post, where Kia Makarechi quoted Caramanica and Rosen and cited widely-quoted comments of Miley’s, like the one where she said she wanted to make music that “sounds black.”

Naturally, as a pop music nerd with progressive political opinions, I loved all this debate. But after all is said and done—and this being Tuesday, it mostly is—I have to agree with Adam Lambert, who last night asked, “Why is everyone spazzing?” I wasn’t entirely comfortable with how the aforementioned dancer came off, almost like a prop.

At the same time, I can’t fault Miley for including a black dancer in her act. She should just remember that it’s only her own ass that she has the right to use as a disembodied object.

Miley Cyrus fires off 'Bangerz' album cover and new track 'Wrecking Ball' -- listen now!

If you thought Miley Cyrus was going to commission trap-rap-style packaging for Bangerz, you were completely wrong. (Although I appreciate the impulse.) Last night Miley tweeted the cover to her album (due Oct. 8), and if anything, it seems inspired by the famous cover of Duran Duran’s Rio, which was made by the quintessential American artist Patrick Nagel. Meanwhile, she released the mega-ballad “Wrecking Ball,” which should have Katy Perry quaking in her boots.

First, the cover: As you can see above, it shows the title in neon and includes palm trees, which will make many people think of Miami Vice (the TV show) and the 1980s (even though there was a lot more to the ’80s than neon and palm trees … and Miami Vice). There’s no reason why Miley would want to evoke that decade—she was born in 1992, and as I alluded to above, recently she has taken inspiration from contemporary rap.

Miley Cyrus names her new album 'BANGERZ,' possibly recruits Britney Spears

To promote her upcoming album, Katy Perry has been posting clever videos promising a new, streamlined persona. To promote her upcoming album, Lady Gaga posted a video in which she gets her septum pierced.

And then there’s Miley Cyrus, who just tweeted the damn title of her upcoming album.

Astute readers will notice that she is spelling that title with a Z at the end, rather than an S:

“Bangers” might work for an album made by her father, but for Miley Cyrus, only a Z will do. (Incidentally, she’s considering going the full Miley and dropping her dad’s name entirely.) READ FULL STORY
