Big year for women in pop, turns out! They ruled the VMAs. They ruled the charts. They ruled the internet. They caused controversy. Real, genuine controversy: Not just like “your mom is worried” but like “Rashida Jones is worried.” They released good music and weird music and occasionally very bad music, and it all seemed to speak volumes about something. Gender. Culture. America. Women! They’re all over our Top 10 Albums and Top 10 Singles End of Year lists. But which of the great Pop Divas had the best year in 2013? Forthwith, the case For and Against each one. READ FULL STORY

While Cyrus is among the first of the Times Square performers to be announced, ABC has revealed that Ariana Grande, Capital Cities, Daughtry, and The Fray would be joining the West Coast line up hosted by Fergie. Robin Thicke, Jason Derulo, Enrique Iglesias, Jason Derulo, Fall Out Boy, Florida Georgia Line and Jennifer Hudson are also slated to perform on the West Coast.
Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest airs on Tues. Dec. 31 at 10 p.m.
Oh Psy, you scamp — running the table two years in a row.
South Korea’s pony-danciest pop import had another bang-up year in video pageviews, following last year’s no. 1 “Gangam Style” with “Gentleman” in 2013. But Miley Cyrus, bless her, came close to wrecking him — and still beat him in total views.
Also on the list? The usual suspects: Katy, Rihanna, “Blurred Line” boobs, and more.

Miley Cyrus is definitely in the holiday spirit.
On Dec.6, Cyrus performed at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball dressed as a sexy, sequined Santa. While singing her hit “We Can’t Stop,” she even twerks and grinds with another Santa. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY
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. READ FULL STORY
What did you do when you turned 21? Was it a brief but torrid affair with tequila, or was it a quiet night at home racked by college graduation-related panic?
No matter how hard (or little) you raged, its unlikely that you commandeered a cable network when you arrived at legal drinking age. But apparently that’s what you get for the girl who has everything, as MTV will be handing the controls over to Miley Cyrus tomorrow, which is Cyrus’ birthday.
Starting at Noon, Cyrus will lord over an eight-hour block of programming that will begin with 21 Candles: Miley’s MTV Moments, a compendium of the star’s time on the channel and a retrospective look at how she has evolved live on cable TV.
The day will include an extra-long version of the Miley: The Movement documentary from earlier this year as well as episodes of Cyrus’ favorite MTV shows Awkward. and Snooki and JWOWW. There will also be a smattering of music videos, and probably 10,000 spins of Cyrus twerking at this year’s Video Music Awards.
If the clip below is any indication, 21 Candles: Miley’s MTV Moments might be fun. In it, Cyrus flashes back to a question she took about tattoos on TRL back in 2008. The now-tattooed Cyrus reveals that she might not have been 100 percent telling the truth in ’08, and lays out her needle philosophy below. READ FULL STORY
Miley Cyrus is no poser: In an interview on British radio, the pop star revealed that she was indeed smoking real pot onstage at the MTV Europe Music Awards, THR reports.
But Cyrus insists she wasn’t trying to engineer yet another publicity-generating to-do. “It’s not something that I think about,” the “Wrecking Ball” singer said. “I was just walking out of my room and then I was like, ‘Oh, I have this in my bag. That will be really funny.'”
“And I didn’t say anything to anybody,” she continued. “It’s not that I think about that… and I don’t tell anyone I’m gonna do it. Some people I think overthink so much … That’s not why I do it. I just did it mostly because I knew the fans in Amsterdam would love it, and they started going crazy when I did it … But I don’t really care what the media says because I don’t Google myself, so I don’t know what they say. And I don’t care.”
The lady who twerks can also sing — when she’s not busy lighting up a stunt doobie.
Miley Cyrus followed up her headline-ready performance at the MTV EMA Music Awards over the weekend with a stirring performance for Live Lounge on BBC Radio 1. After performing her hit “Wrecking Ball,” the singer, clad in a black turtleneck (Is this the most shocking thing she could wear at this point?), sang a slightly country-influenced version of Lana Del Rey’s contemplative ballad, “Summertime Sadness.”
Longtime Cyrus fans will note that this cover is very reminiscent of some tracks she memorably covered for her December 2012 “Backyard Sessions,” where she garnered attention for her stripped-down, emotionally naked performances.

As your newsfeed has no doubt informed you several hundred times by now, Miley Cyrus sparked a J onstage Sunday night during MTV’s European Music Awards.
Meanwhile, MTV finds themselves in the good graces of a group that typically condemns them: The Parents Television Council. That group applauded MTV for editing out the footage of Cyrus smoking when the show was rebroadcast on Stateside MTV.
“Last night MTV made a responsible decision and they executed it perfectly,” PTC President and M.I.A. nemesis Tim Winter said. “It is unclear whether MTV’s actions suggest stricter content guidelines for its TV-14 programming, or whether this is just an example of the old saying that ‘even a broken clock is right twice each day.’ We certainly hope it is the former. We applaud MTV for taking responsible actions to eliminate the drug use from its U.S. broadcast, and we urge them to make that a uniform policy for all of its programming.” READ FULL STORY
Remember when you were so emotionally disturbed by Miley Cyrus’ twerking at the VMAs you wanted to remove your eyeballs with a rusty spoon? Or the time you rushed your family down to your homemade bomb shelter after viewing her “Wrecking Ball” video? Nope, me neither. But, as previously reported, earlier today the pop star continued her year of Offending People Who Enjoy Being Offended By Things Miley Cyrus Does when she lit up what most definitely did not look like a cigarette at the MTV European Music Awards in Amsterdam, birthplace of the marijuana-dispensing coffee shop and Kirk Douglas (although only one of those facts seems relevant to this story).
