Miley Cyrus has been laying low these last few weeks, due to a recurring illness and a bad reaction to meds forcing her to cancel a bunch of tour dates. But there’s always more Miley to be had. She just released “Miley Cyrus: Tongue Tied,” an S&M-inspired video filmed for her tour by fashion photographer Quentin Jones, featuring the singer in various states of undress, her nipples covered by duct tape and, at times, being slathered in mud. I actually think it’s really beautiful and cool-looking, especially the moments where it looks like flower petals or feathers are exploding from her eyes. Neato. Watch above!
“If I didn’t know how smart and talented Miley is, I might worry about her. But I’ve watched her grow up. So I don’t. She knows what she’s doing. She was very proud of the work she did as Hannah Montana, but people were gonna leave her there forever. And she was just smotherin’ and chokin’ in it. So she felt she had to do something completely drastic. And she did. She made her point, she made her mark, and more power to her… I’m hoping that now she can relax and show people how talented she really is. ’Cause the girl can write. The girl can sing. The girl is smart. And she doesn’t have to be so drastic. But I will respect her choices. I did it my way, so why can’t she do it her way?”
Dolly Parton, who just happens to be Miley Cyrus‘ godmother (so jealous), gave her take on the pop star’s transformation from tween Disney idol to, well, the Miley we all know and love/hate today for Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People issue. After reading this, I feel like I have a better understanding of Miley and more respect for her as an artist/performer. If anyone else had written it, I’d be like, “Yeah, whatever,” but when Dolly speaks, I reverently light my Dolly Parton prayer candle and honor whatever she says as gospel. [Time via Us Weekly]
Sometimes when other people have too much time on their hands, it is for our gain. Example: Peeps dressed like Miley Cyrus. Peep-Miley from her “Wrecking Ball” video and many others were entries in The Washington Post‘s annual Peeps diorama contest, all of which you can see online. When Easter dinner gets awkward, fire up the laptop for a slideshow that will be entertaining to one and all. [Washington Post]
If you had plans for tonight, I’m pretty sure you’re gonna wanna cancel them. Because the Miley Cyrus porn parody is out today! “Wrecking Ballz,” according to synopsis, “follows the adventures of America’s pill-popping princess Molly, as she sucks and fucks her way to stardom with Hollywood’s hottest celebs. With pseudo appearances by Beyonce, Liam Hemsworth, Robin Thicke, and Justin Beiber look-alikes, this A-list fuck fest is sure to make headlines and turn heads.” I just watched the extremely NSFW trailer and SPOILER ALERT, Miley, I mean Molly totally goes down on Fakeyonce. Scandalous! Don’t worry, I have no intention of taking this one out for a test rub — I only masturbate to D-list celeb porn, not porn parodies. (I have standards.) Anyway, given that Miley has been fairly open about her sexuality, I’m genuinely curious what she thinks about being the subject of a porn parody. Do tell, Smilerz. [Vice]
