By now, my readers probably know that I actually quite like Miley Cyrus. Sure, her videos are horrible, she has been saying a few stupid things in interviews but given that she did a thousand interviews in the last months…who wouldn’t have. But so far, her antics have been mainly on stage and seemed quite controlled and I hope for her sake that it stays like that. And the amount of slack she still gets for every single thing she says…I guess I just hate this media-hate especially when she hasn’t done anything actually outrageous, let alone illegal.
Here she is dressed like a Strawberry on the German fiasco called “Wetten, dass..?” which is a show that is known for cheap jokes, bad interviews and stupid bets. Sometimes I hope that Miley will celebrate a few more years and then vanish for a year to come back as a folk-singer…somehow I think that she would be really good as a new incarnation of Janis Joplin – she only needs to learn to write her own songs.
And you know what? I like her break-up-with-worst-video-of-the-year-apart-from-that-Kanye-West-Kim-Kardashian-one-song. “Wrecking Ball” proves once again that the girl actually has a great voice and Haim tackling it and – although instrumentally slaying it – failing to deliver vocally, is another point for the vocal skills the girl has (It actually reminds me of the time Florence Welsh tried to cover Beyonce’s “Halo” and wrecking balled that song right on the spot).
