Last night Miley attended the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. Above you can watch some videos of her there. Enjoy!
Having ditched the squeaky-clean image and long blonde hair of her Disney days, Miley Cyrus has spent the past few years acting out and growing up. As she reveals to Pharrell Williams, the producer behind her new hip-hop sound, she’s unapologetically taking control.
Dressed in a midriff-baring vintage tee and Topshop pants, Miley Cyrus is barefoot dancing to her new hip-hop-infused sound at a Burbank, California, recording studio. A few feet away, Pharrell Williams, the megacharming megaproducer who helped to orchestrate this clever, heartfelt sonic breakthrough, leans effortlessly against a console, trading lyrics with the smiley 20-year-old determined to revolutionize her career. They are listening to “#GetItRight,” the possible lead single off her impending, first post-Disney album, and a sure Top 40 diamond with a whistling hook and clever sweetness that partially obscures the frank sexual nature of its lyrics. A global phenomenon since her Hannah Montana days, the daughter of Billy Ray “Achy Breaky” Cyrus is widely recognized for kid-friendly hits and a corporate-approved persona. But after shedding her Disney veneer—genuinely, without the trappings of image strategy—Miley has revealed herself to be a far more compelling pop figure in the throes of a powerful transformation. The world is watching as her look, identity, and womanhood evolve, fixating on every life decision from the engagement to Hollywood heartthrob Liam Hemsworth to the defiant, much-ballyhooed cropped do which she attributes to the ongoing mentorship of Williams. Here the collaborators sit down to discuss everyhing from fashion to family to triumphant next-level greatness.
Today Miley’s song with Will.i.am ‘Fall Down’ is released! I love the song! If you can make sure you go on iTunes and buy it!
Above you can listen to Miley’s interview with Ryan Seacrest. She talked about her twerking video, her new music and more! Make sure you listen to it!
After 2010’s underwhelming “Can’t Be Tamed” left Miley a free agent, parting ways with longtime label Hollywood Records, the opportunity to further expand her pop sound into new and edgier places became quite appealing to the 19-year-old artist formerly known as Hannah Montana. As she told Billboard at September’s IHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas, Cyrus booked studio time with hip-hop producers like Pharrell Williams, Hit-Boy and Da Internz, the latter of whom helmed Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” and Big Sean’s “A$$.” Cyrus was still talking to labels around IHeartRadio time, but Billboard has since learned that the singer has signed with RCA for a release later this year and that Dr. Luke will be among the album’s collaborators.
Firstly I hope everyone had a good Christmas!
Secondly on Christmas Eve a new Backyard Session was published! The Backyard Sessions took place earlier this summer. This Backyard Session is of Miley covering Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”. Miley sounds AMAZING! I love this cover! Make sure you watch it above!
