CMA Awards: Best and Worst of the Broadcast

The real winners were announced Wednesday night at the 47th Annual Country Music Association Awards. But here are a few more honors from the telecast you should feel free to weigh in on:

Best “Suck it, haters” Taylor Swift moment ever: So not only did George Strait, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Brad Paisley, and Rascal Flatts — all people for whom Swift opened at the start of her career — come out onstage to present the 23-year-old with the Pinnacle Award, there was also a video including kind messages from Mick Jagger, Justin Timberlake, Carly Simon, Julia Roberts, and Ethel Kennedy, among others. Watch it below. It’s might have been the best acceptance speech of Swift’s career, as she paid respect to each of the artists onstage with her.  READ FULL STORY

Miley Cyrus crashes 'SNL' to announce 2014 tour -- VIDEO

Miley-SNL-Tour.jpg

If Saturday Night Live fans thought they were done with Miley Cyrus for the year after she pulled double-duty as host and musical guest earlier this month, they were sorely mistaken. The “Wrecking Ball” singer returned on last night’s SNL to give Edward Norton some hosting tips (yeah, we’re not sure Ed should take her advice either) alongside 15-time host Alec Baldwin.

She kicked off her appearance with a little self-promotion, announcing her upcoming tour. “Real quick, I’d just like to announce to all my fans that I’m about to be going on tour.” Baldwin followed suit with his own message to Miley’s supporters: “And I’d like to announce to Miley’s fans that my new talk show is on MSNBC Fridays at 10 o’clock.”

Check out the moment during Norton’s monologue below:

Poll: Do you still care about Miley Cyrus?

Miley, is that you in that elegant backless gown?

The princess of provocation looked rather subdued at last night’s FGI Night of Stars Gala, or at least her version of subdued. While it’s a nice change to see the singer fully clothed and with nary a dangling tongue in sight, is it strange that we haven’t been deluged with another Miley controversy for a whole …  two weeks?

Yes, we’re aware that Cyrus is alive and kicking. She’s been busy promoting Bangerz and her single “Wrecking Ball” returned to number two on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. She even delivered a solid Saturday Night Live hosting/singing performance following her much-documented feud with Sinead O’Connor. And spoofs of her “Wrecking Ball” video (see Betty White‘s latest take)  are still going viral.

But Cyrus, who revealed she was the “strategic hot mess” mastermind behind her infamous VMA performance, has been relatively quiet. A little too quiet. So quiet, you could hear a foam finger drop. Do you appreciate this break from the nearly Miley Mania of the last three months?

It won’t last for long. She’s scheduled to perform at the MTV’s Europe Music Awards on Nov. 10 and then again at the American Music Awards on Nov. 24. So it’s only a matter of roughly another two weeks before Cyrus unleashes her next retina-searing, family-scarring, feed-dominating third act. Even if she can’t quite articulate her plans just yet, I’m sure it’s at the tip of her tongue.

Miley Cyrus tops the Billboard albums chart, because of course she does

Shockerz — Bangerz is no. 1.

Media wallflower Miley Cyrus topped the Billboard charts with 270,000 in first-week sales — giving her the eighth-largest debut of the year. (For comparison, her last album, 2010’s Can’t Be Tamed, sold 102,000 in its first week).

Coming in a distant but still impressive second: Panic! At the Disco’s Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, with 83K. Dang! Those kids! Love! Exclamation points!

Drake’s a good holder-upper and he knows it – his Nothing Was the Same stayed strong at no. 3 with 80K; Justin Timberlake dropped harder, landing at no. 5 with a still-not-bad 72K, and Lorde maintained at no.7 with 58K.

Clipse rapper and Friend of Kanye Pusha T bowed at no. 4 with My Name Is My Name moving 74K; the Glee Cory Monteith tribute EP The Quarterback landed at no. 7 with 47K; Korn came in at no. 8 with 45K (so that’s still a thing?); and The Voice Season Three winner Cassadee Pope’s Frame by Frame took the no. 9 spot with 44K.

Rounding out the top 10: Cher, whose Closer to the Truth had the smallest drop of the week — 4% — to sell 38K. Not too bad for her 25th studio album. Yep, 25th. Miley, are you taking notez?

Miley Cyrus doesn't know if she'll ever make up with Sinead O'Connor

Miley Cyrus says she’s not sure she’ll make up with Sinead O’Connor after the back and forth drama between the singers.

When asked in an interview Tuesday if she and the 46-year-old performer would kiss and make up, Cyrus replied with: “I don’t know. Are we supposed to kiss?”

Cyrus made the comments in New York when meeting fans at a CD signing for her new album, Bangerz, released Tuesday.

The drama launched last week when the Irish chanteuse warned the young singer to avoid being sexually exploited by the music industry. The first open letter came after Cyrus said her “Wrecking Ball” video, where she is nude and licks a sledgehammer, was inspired by O’Connor’s famous “Nothing Compares 2 U.” READ FULL STORY

Miley Cyrus and Sinead O'Connor make beautiful music together -- VIDEO

Sinead-Miley.jpg

They may not be in the same room (ever), but Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor sound pretty great together. That is, in “Nothing Compares to Wrecking Ball,” a great Miley/Sinead mashup created by Robin Skouteris — a mixmaster who’s also recently done great things with Lady Gaga, The Prodigy, and La Roux.

I’d have thought “Wrecking Ball” would work better with a melodically similar tune like Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” or Bruno Mars’s “Locked Out of Heaven.” But in practice, the Sinead comparison is pretty perfect — and even more compelling than “Wrecking” mashups with either of those songs. (Though yes, this “Wrecked out of Heaven” mix is pretty great.) Plus, there’s the intentional similarity between Miley’s video and Sinead’s, which adds a neat mirroring element.

If you watch only one video of mostly bald white ladies crying in close-up today, make it this one.

Now Sinead O'Connor is mad at Simon Cowell

Nothing compares 2 feuds.

Earlier this week, Irish songstress Sinead O’Connor made headlines with a series of scathing open letters to Miley Cyrus — which culminated in a threat to take legal action. Shortly after writing that third letter, O’Connor set upon two more targets: Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh, Cowell’s fellow judge on the UK version of The X Factor.

“I feel sorry for the murder of music and rock ‘n’ roll, which has happened because of the industry,” O’Connor said Friday on Ireland’s The Late Late Show. “Because of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh —  they’ve murdered music. I stand to say it on behalf of every musician in the world and they’ll agree with me.”

Sinead O'Connor writes THIRD open letter to Miley Cyrus, threatens 'legal proceedings'

Miley sure knows how to push people’s buttons.

Let’s recap: On Wednesday, Sinead O’Connor wrote an open letter to Miley Cyrus, chastising the young star for her recent behavior. “Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited,” O’Connor wrote to Cyrus, “and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent.”

Cyrus didn’t take too kindly to the critique. She responded to O’Connor Twitter yesterday, comparing the Irish songstress to troubled starlet Amanda Bynes — and including a screengrab of O’Connor’s very public 2012 Twitter meltdown. O’Connor retaliated with another open letter last night, scolding Cyrus for making light of mental illness. Cyrus dismissed O’Connor’s latest letter on Twitter, writing, “Sinead. I don’t have time to write you an open letter cause Im hosting & performing on SNL this week. So if youd like to meet up and talk lemme know in your next letter. :)”

All of which brings us to this morning — and the third open letter O’Connor has posted on her Facebook page. Surprise — she’s not thrilled!

Sinead O'Connor writes to Miley Cyrus again: 'It is not acceptable to mock any person for having suffered'

On Oct. 2, outspoken Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O’Connor posted an open letter to Miley Cyrus on her website that chided the starlet for getting naked in her “Wrecking Ball” video — which Cyrus had told Rolling Stone was partly inspired by O’Connor’s iconic “Nothing Compares 2U” clip. “Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited,” O’Connor wrote to Cyrus, “and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent.”

Cyrus didn’t take kindly to the harsh criticism, tweeting out a response that compared O’Connor to troubled starlet Amanda Bynes and included a screengrab of the bipolar singer’s very public Twitter meltdown from January 2012. Cyrus, who will host Saturday Night Live this weekend, then tweeted an image of O’Connor famously tearing up a photo of Pope John Paul II during her own Saturday Night Live gig in 1992.

O’Connor has now taken to her website to address Cyrus again — and she’s not playing nice this time around. “I mean really really… who advises you?” she asks. “Have you any idea how stupid and dangerous it is to mock people for suffering illness?”

She also takes issue with Cyrus’ tweet about O’Connor’s pope-tearing SNL stunt. “By mocking it you mock every child who suffered sexual abuse at the hands of priests and had it covered by the Vatican,” she says. “You could really do with educating yourself, that is if you’re not too busy getting your t–s out to read.” Yikes.

Once again, Cyrus has responded to O’Connor’s open letter on her Twitter:
