Miley Cyrus Releases Secret Free Album, Pisses Off the Parent’s Television Council

Miley Cyrus VMAs

You could say Miley Cyrus had a pretty busy evening last night. Besides hosting the VMAs, shouting out her “mammy” and fumbling with a comeback after getting (epically) called out by Nicki Minaj, Cyrus also had big things in the works. The singer, clearly inspired by Beyoncé, announced the release of a surprise album during the awards show last night. But unlike Beyoncé’s epic history-making overture, Cyrus’ album is free.

Yep. Cyrus just dropped “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz,” a 23-track album whose song names mimic the questionable spelling of the album title. Cyrus performed one of the tracks, “Dooo It!” during the awards ceremony and also released the accompanying music video, which is cool if you want to see Miley spit glitter goo from her mouth and rub it all over her face. “Yeah I smoke pot, yeah I love beats, but I don’t give a f**k, I ain’t no hippie.” Oh, what a rebel you are Ms. Miley.

But a new album and uncomfortable-ass music video isn’t the only thing on Cyrus’ plate. The singer finds herself in a bit of hot water after flashing a nipple in a backstage segment during last night’s VMA broadcast. The nip slip set off the Parent’s Television Council, which should know by now that the VMAs aren’t exactly a family friendly event, but it complained anyway because what is more offensive than a woman’s nipples on live TV? “MTV had an opportunity to use its powerful VMA platform to stir a young audience to aspire to something positive and uplifting. Instead, they chose to perpetuate blatant sexualization – much of it self-inflicted by the artists – and to celebrate the use of illegal drugs,” PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement. “MTV rated the content of the program as appropriate for a child as young as 14, though most parents of teens that age would find such a content rating preposterous. In the end, the network succeeded in what it wanted to do: stir up controversy without regard to its impact on an entertainment environment that is increasingly toxic for children.” Because 14-year olds don’t have breasts or anything.

But if we know anything about Cyrus, we think it’s pretty safe to say she couldn’t care less what the PTC has to say about her boobs.

“I like to live by the rule that I am who I am,” Kelly said in the video. “I’ve realised, no matter how hard I try, no matter how many wishes I make, I’m never going to wake up and be anything else.” (more…)

She swaps out her squad of Victoria’s Secret models for, ahem, giraffes, plus actor and all-round babe Scott Eastwood, who is Tay’s love interest for the film within the film. (more…)

New Study Says People Think Better of You When You Wear Black

Besides the fact that Jay Z thinks it’s cool, turns out wearing black clothing also makes other people think you’re cool. A survey done by UK retailer buy t-shirts online asked 1,000 people how they perceive others based on the color of clothing they wear. Turns out, if you want to come across as confident, intelligent or sexy, you should bet on black.

A staggering 56% of people surveyed said that they see people who wear black as confident. The rates were particularly high for men, 64% of whom selected black as their choice color. 48% of women agreed. In fact, black came in first or second for a lot of the positive traits mentioned in the survey. Following black, red and blue came in as the second and third most confident colors – good to know in case your LBD is stuck at the dry cleaners and you need alternatives. 

Red was the color most associated with arrogance, so the color clearly has a lot of different connotations, depending on who you ask. Pink was the color most associated with a lack of intelligence, with only 5% of people asked linking the color to braininess. Sorry Barbie

But overall, if you’re trying to impress people with your attire, your best option seems to be black, as “black came first or second in most ‘good’ traits (for example confidence, intelligence and sexiness) and barely figured in the “bad” traits (arrogance).” So forget doom and gloom: black has a new connotation and it’s all good.
