Miley Cyrus called into a radio station this morning in Tampa Bay, Florida. She called in as apart of a press tour of radio stations because she wants them to play her song on the radio and promote her concert tour and whatever else she can think of to promote. When the radio station does this Miley makes a ton of money and the radio station doesn't really make any because instead of selling commercial time they are giving free ones to Miley. The object is that their listenership will increase and so down the road at some point the station will make more money. Obviously though it is the performers who come way out ahead. To make things even worse when you have someone who is controlled like Miley is the radio announcers are only allowed to ask pre-approved questions and only discuss pre-approved topics. Why is that? To make sure that nothing ruins the image and to make sure the performer gets the chance to plug as many things as possible in the time in which they are on the air.
In this audio clip, the host asks Miley if she was aware that he was only allowed to ask her certain questions? Miley didn't say much of anything. The host then said, that he thinks some questions should be answered, and they should. If you don't want to answer certain questions then just stay at home and give interviews to Kneepads. Why is it that you as a performer think you can control the questions and make the rules? You can't expect to take and take and take and not give anything back in return. The problem is there are too many stations and too many morning shows (Ryan Seacrest, Good Morning America, Today Show) who let it happen and are willing to never make a wave and sacrifice any kind of credibility.
When I first heard the clip I thought the host was going to ask a really tough question or ask her about the revealing photos she is always taking and that he was going to do something so outrageous that he deserved the hangup he got from Miley. Instead he asked if she had ever received an actual apology from Jamie Foxx. That is all he asked and as soon as he asked it, Miley hung up on him. F**k that. You can't pick and choose. I hope that every single radio station from now on asks her that question. They won't of course. They will all be afraid of ticking off a 16 year old girl and Disney. Losers. Step up and ask a question. If everyone asks a responsible question then they won't be able to play the game anymore. Don't ask Idiotic questions, but questions that are newsworthy and should be addressed. When they are answered then give a plug.
You have two choices here. The entire interview before hangup was about 5 minutes long which you can listen to here. I will warn you it is painful and Miley is extra annoying. The relevant portion is about 45 seconds and for that you can click here.
