Miley Cyrus Speaks Out

miley_cyrus_vma_2013_1It’s been about a week since Miley Cyrus surprised the world with her ‘special’ VMA performance. By now, we’ve all seen Miley twerk on stage in a too-small two piece get-up. She groped herself, shook her butt, grinded on Robin Thicke and kept her tongue out her mouth like a thirsty dog all in the name of making history, as she put it.

Miley Cyrus has finally spoken out about her VMA performance, and after listening to the interview, I think she’s right. She hasn’t done anything that someone else hasn’t done before her. Her performance with Robin Thicke accomplished everything it was set out to accomplish. It became the most tweeted about event since Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance. People are paying attention to little Hannah Montana even more now than they did before. All in all, she’s making money!

While I thought her outfit was a bit grotesque, I don’t think her performance was anything outside of the ordinary, especially not for MTV. I think people still think of Hannah Montana when they see Miley Cyrus, but like most child stars, she’s straying away from that ‘Disney’ persona. I mean look at Justin Bieber and Amanda Bynes. Once they’ve become of age, they all shed themselves of the kiddie image to take on the image they really want to convey. The world can’t continue to look at Miley Cyrus through their Hannah Montana glasses forever, and I think this performance proved that.

I’d also like to say that people shouldn’t get mad that Miley Cyrus ‘twerked’ on TV, when women/girls across the world upload twerk videos to YouTube on a regular basis. Most of these ‘angry’ people aren’t upset about all these young girls/women twerking on YouTube. In fact, a lot of the negative comments I’ve seen directed toward Miley were in regard to her butt or lack thereof. I know that a lot of these women/girls most likely upload these videos in hopes that it will make them famous, which is really sad and depressing. However, to each his or her own.

I also understand that folks are mad at Miley because she is supposed to be a role model for young girls. Let’s face it. Hannah Montana was a role model for young girls, Miley Cyrus is not. People change, and celebrities are not exempt.

Check out the interview below.

New BET Tuesday Lineup Review


Real Husbands of Hollywood 

I, like many other people have been anticipating the new Kevin Hart show, Real Husbands of Hollywood. With all of the promotions BET has been doing for the program, I just knew it was going to be funny. Not to mention, the snippets shown during the BET awards show were hilarious. Needless to say, I was right in front of my TV when the show came on.

After watching the show, I can truly say that I was disappointed. I think I laughed a couple of times throughout the entire 30 minute show. It was quite boring, and not what I expected. I think with this being the first episode, it should have come a lot harder. I hope the premier was not an indication of how the season will be. If so, Kevin Hart is in serious trouble. I’m not sure what the issue was, but BET definitely gassed this one up. I can say that I do like JB Smoove though; he’s really funny. Aside from Kevin Hart, I think he’ll contribute the most to the show. Now, on the other hand, Nick Cannon is not funny nor is he a good actor (my opinion). I’ll have to wait to see what Robin Thicke and Nelly do before I can give an opinion. I’m glad to see Duane back on the scene; I think he’s a pretty good actor. I happen to believe that Boris is just alright. I’m not a big fan, but it is what it is.

I haven’t seen that many positive reviews via Twitter or Facebook. So, I guess a lot of other people have the same sentiments. Hopefully next week will be better; it has to be.

2nd Generation Wayans 

Of the two premiers, I thought this show was better. I think Damien Wayans is a decent actor. I’m not so sure about Craig Wayans though. Letoya Luckett surprised me; I’m inclined to watch more of her although she’s a guest star. Again, I was happy to see that BET dug deep when casting for these new shows. I’ve always liked Tatyana Ali. So, that was a pleasant surprise. Regina is a really good actress. I’m glad she’s guest starred on the show; I believe she added credibility. I haven’t seen George Gore since My Wife and Kids, and I’m not really sure what to expect. It should be interesting though.

I think this show will do well considering that there’s a real plot, and it seems to be entertaining enough. It has a young fresh cast that I think will be able to entice the viewers, and keep them entertained.

With the epic failure of The Game, BET has to do a better job piloting new programs. BET has been losing a lot of credibility and loyalty from the viewers. With that said, the network has a lot on the line with every new show they put out there. I hope they’ll be able to find some success with their new Tuesday lineup, but after last night, I’m not so sure they will.
