Miley Cyrus breaks down during iHeartRadio festival

Miley Cyrus can’t stop.

The pop singer was a crowd favorite at the iHeartRadio music festival day event Saturday in Las Vegas. Before she hit the stage, the crowd of a few hundred chanted: “Miley! Miley! Miley!”

The 20-year-old emerged onstage in all white, wearing a tight corset and high waisted shorts that revealed some of her backside.

Her four-song set opened with the anthemic “We Can’t Stop,” where people onstage were dressed in flower, mushroom and rainbow costumes. She gyrated and slapped a dwarf-sized dancer’s butt onstage. She followed the colorful performance with “Party In the USA.”

But it was her emotional rendition of “Wrecking Ball” that was her set’s highlight. Cyrus’ mascara was running as she left the stage after the song and the performance comes days after she announced she was no longer engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth. She thanked the audience for helping the song top the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. READ FULL STORY

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

Miley Cyrus: Read the complaints to the FCC

Twerk-gate 2013 isn’t over yet, folks.

The Smoking Gun has obtained the 150 (!) actual complaints that upset viewers filed to the FCC after Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance last month. Because the VMAs aired on MTV, a cable network, the FCC doesn’t actually have authority to levy any penalties against the channel…but sometimes it just feels good to get something off your chest, doesn’t it? (A rep for Cyrus didn’t immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.)

While the commenters are outraged, everything continues to come up Cyrus since her awards show performance. In addition to her Saturday Night Live gig Oct. 5, the video for her new single “Wrecking Ball” has been viewed over 44 million times.

Check out some highlights of the outrage-filled, misspelled missives to the FCC — which includes an odd amount of concern for the stuffed bears — below.  (Note: On The Smoking Guns’ site, users can see scans of the actual complaint documents, courtesy of a Freedom of Information Act request).

Robin Thicke speaks out about his MTV VMA performance -- VIDEO

Three weeks after his eye-opening, jaw-dropping, scandalous MTV VMA performance starring a twerk-happy Miley Cyrus, an abused foam finger, and a Beetlejuice suit — Robin Thicke, the striped-suit wearer and Blurred Lines mastermind, finally chimed in about the most-talked about performance of his career.

In an interview with Star Magazine, Thicke finally revealed that the motive to involve gasps from audiences all over the world as a reaction to his teaming with Cyrus several weeks ago was all part of the plan. “We knew what we were getting ourselves into,” Thicke said. “We’re entertainers, and the VMAs is the perfect place for a little shock and awe. Yeah, we kind of knew when we were in rehearsal and we were like, ‘OK, if you touch me with your foam finger all over my crotch, obviously a few people are going to have something to say about this.’ But that was the whole point. I mean the whole point was to excite and provoke and entertain.”

Coming to Miley’s defense on her overtly sexual moves on the  small screen, Thicke maintained that even though the provocative performance was shocking to some, it was all in the name of fun.

“I totally understand everyone comes from different places and has their own opinions, but when people use the word sexual, I didn’t feel anything sexual about the performance,” Thicke said. “I thought it was silly and funny, she was being humorous and naughty, but it wasn’t sexually charged at all. That’s who she is, that’s how she likes to dance, she was just being herself and I was just being myself.”

Sure, Robin.

Billy Ray Cyrus on Miley's 'Wrecking Ball' video: 'It wouldn't have mattered if Miley would have worn a nun's habit'

MILEY-CYRUS-NAKED.jpg

Opinions about Miley Cyrus’ hammer-licking “Wrecking Ball” video are like tongues—everybody has one.

But some, like Miley’s famous father Billy Ray, are more relevant than others. He had the opportunity to make a definitive statement about parenting and teen sexuality when he commented on his daughter’s video yesterday; instead, he sort of side-stepped the issue.

Talking to Entertainment Tonight, Billy Ray said he thought everybody was missing the point. “The song’s a smash,” the elder Cyrus said. “It wouldn’t have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt, a tux, or a nun’s habit—her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God-given talent.”

“I’m a song man,” he added. “A musician singer-songwriter who loves all styles of music. I come from the old school where it starts with an artist and a song, colliding if you will, in a moment where the song, the singer, the producer, the band, and the listener become one.”

Yesterday, Miley herself told New York radio personality Elvis Duran, “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.”

It all continues the build for Cyrus’ new album Bangerz, which arrives on October 4.

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 takes it all off in new 'Wrecking Ball' video -- Watch it here

The Artist Formerly Known as Hannah Montana continues her demure promotions for the upcoming Bangerz with a new video for “Wrecking Ball” that is both emotionally and literally stripped.

Yep, she naked. Also, she’s fellating a sledgehammer. Watch it here and be scandalized/titillated/disappointed in Billy Ray Cyrus’ parenting skills:

Lana Del Rey comes from behind to help dislodge the boys of summer

How perfect is it that the Cedric Gervais dance remix of Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness” has marked the end of the season? It broke into the Billboard Hot 100′s top 10 in mid-August, as the melancholy anticipation of fall was just beginning to kick in, and it slipped one spot (to tenth place place) this week, just as two important seasonal milestones were passed: Labor Day and unseating of the Song of the Summer, the Robin Thicke juggernaut “Blurred Lines,” from number one.

We have Katy Perry and her charming “Roar” to thank for the second event, which suggests—along with the vertiginous advancement of some other key women in pop—a new synchronicity’s fully in play on the charts. But more on that in a moment. The rise of “Summertime Sadness,” a song that debuted in its original form on the second day of the summer last year, is not merely a poetic capper to a few paradoxically cheerless months dominated by the merry men who brought you the uniformly milquetoast “Blurred Lines,” “Get Lucky” and The 20/20 Experience. It’s also an example of how a good song—and by an extension, an overdiscussed artist—can steadily progress from “irrelevance” to “hey, turn this up.” And that’s an optimistic lesson to take into any new season.

Back in August, Sean Ross at Billboard laid out a few good reasons why “Summertime Sadness”—and Lana Del Rey—was finally finding success in the U.S. Although he failed to mention the most obvious one, which is that her black-widow croon is more palatable drizzled over clubby zoom-zoom and not just soaked up in a bunch of strings. Reanimated by a European DJ or not, it was a slow populist swell—like the one for “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons and “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line, to name two old singles eventually done good—that eventually put “Summertime Sadness” back into our ears.

As for that new synchronicity: Lana Del Rey’s divvying up the top 10 with Perry, Miley Cyrus (“We Can’t Stop”), Lady Gaga (“Applause”) and the teenage New Zealander Lorde (“Royals”). Miley is pop music’s rising star, Perry and Gaga its boundary-busting spirit leaders, and Del Rey and Lorde its (totally unalike) outsiders. (And look out for Ariana Grande on the album chart!)  Unlike the boys of summer (not to mention Imagine Dragons and Florida Georgia Line) this is a cast of characters bound to keep surprising us, whether or not it’s their turn at bat.
