Miley Cyrus Is An Idiot

Miley Cyrus might think she has this perfect plan how to transition from Disney Channel to Spice Channel and keep making money but shock does not equal money. Over the weekend Miley hosted SNL which got the same ratings as the season premiere hosted by Tina Fey. In one of the skits and in interviews before and after the show she says she murdered Hannah Montana. Moving on from a character that you feel you have outgrown is fine. I have no problems with that. The things is she has not just moved on she says she hates Hannah Montana and wished Hannah never existed and will do whatever she can to make sure no one wants to watch the show again.

Last year Miley Cyrus' main source of income was Hannah Montana royalties and licensing. In fact, it contributed about 85% of her income. The other 15% was made up of endorsements appearances and some very lousy movies. With her goal to make people never want to watch the show or buy an product Miley must be pretty confident she can make up that 85% of her income. She must also be pretty confident she never wants to go back to the show in a few years for any kind of spin off or reunion show.

I know Miley wants to be edgy and to not have people think about her on the show but that comes gradually over time. She should embrace her past and keep racking up those millions of dollars. She wouldn't be able to afford anything in her life if it was not for that show. She also would not have been given the opportunity to work with such high profile record producers or get the VMA spot or get those lousy movies or her spot on Two And A Half Men without that show.

Oh, and Miley. You skipped to SNL after party. Not a wise move. They don't usually invite you back when you do that. Just sayin'.

Whatever. I like Wrecking Ball. A lot.....and I'm not ashamed to admit that....

Jodi G said...

You never heard Mary Kate and Ashley saying they killed Michelle. You also never heard them saying they love drugs either. If Miley keeps making money, humanity fails.

Mari said...

It's all such contrived "shock" but now add burning bridges. Plenty of people have tried spitting in the face of what made them famous only to crawl back years later.
Miley will learn Sinead and Annie were right.

Joy Dragland said...

Proud to say I never heard Wrecking Ball. I work hard not to hear it. Miley is a spoiled turd, and I can't wait for her to receive her comeuppance.

KL said...

Remember when you were 20 and knew everything? I remember that time. Then I grew up. Poor Miley. :-(

The difference being - when most of us were 20 we didn't have millions to screw up. She'll learn. Hopefully, not the hard way.

Susan said...

Argh. Grace and appreciation are completely lost on this gal.

Wrecking Ball is a catchy tune, but I just can't with this one. She stands for nothing I believe in. And I remember being 20 and stupid. But it's no excuse, especially when you have a team telling you what to do.

I would use her as an example if my son were a teen and would understand. I think it would be lost on his 2- year-old self at the moment.

Irisia said...

Confused. Miley "skipped to SNL after party." Does Enty mean she skipped the after party or skipped to the after party? She definitely attended the after party because there are photos of her being there and who cares if she skipped to the party?

AndrewBW said...

I don't know, this seems OK to me. I mean, there have been many times I wished Hannah Montana never existed . . .

Cleodacat said...

Yep, Miley killed Hannah Montana who was very likable and replaced her with a spoiled brat.

Justanothercommentor said...

She's trying wayyyyy too hard. The pics that old creep Terry Richardson posted of her to his photo diary just goes to prove it. Now she doesn't have much to offer playboy in a few years when she's broke.

audrey said...

She did ok on the show. Her performances were surprisingly good--live and no auto tune.

Flora Goforth said...

Then why is she going blond? If she really wanted to kill Hannah M she would keep her real hair color.

Freya said...

I hate when celebrities want to forget or deny their past. For example, when an actor is on a talk show and the host shows his/her audience an old clip of the actor in a movie or commercial, most of the time how one got her start and she acts like she's in horror over the thing. Be grateful you got the opportunity to do it and look at you now. It's a show of perseverance.

Theodora said...

KL, I was typing out a comment and then realized I was basically repeating what you had already said best. I do want to add that she is incredibly talented and naturally very pretty... I hope she is able to figure it out and celebrate a long, successful career.

(Disclaimer: my sister grew up watching Hannah Montana. I couldn't stand it at first, then I became a fan myself. I'm just a bit older than Miley is, so I feel some strange empathy for the girl.)

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Some really bad things must've gone down during that period for her to feel that way about it. Don't y'all remember how Disney and Nick are pedophilia central? Hello? Hopefully she will eventually tell the story. I just watched her SNL musical performances and was pretty impressed. Obviously not lip synching since it was her own nasally voice (they tone down the nasal in her recordings). I was impressed with how heartfelt she was in her performances and how well she sang.

Renoblondee said...

My daughter grew up with Hannah Montana so that statement of hers pisses me off no end. I've always had a spot for her, but she is losing me totally.

tara17 said...

Miley did a great job on SNL. She was flawless in delivery and performance, akin to Justin Timberlake.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Kids are pretty resistant to celebrity fuck-ups unless their parents harp on it. The kids at my daughter's school still love Michael Jackson.

plokzy said...

Havent seen the SNL episode yet but the comments for it prior to on my streaming site were crazy. On some "links please!!! God I can't wait to see the bitch trainwreck lol" - people WANT her to fail. That is how the general public sees her now.

dawn davenport said...

I was watching that last sketch when that guy with the glasses was hooking up with Miley and the two other cast members were all like "go have sex with Miley!" and he was hemming and hawing and then Miley was telling him that she wanted to have sex with him forever and was only there to please him ect. (filled the room with his favorite stuff) then she ended up sleeping with his "older brother"
yeah I thought that was a direct dig at her ex
anyone else see it that way??

Cee Kay said...

@Freya it's like when actors want to deny they were ever on a soap. TONS of respected actors started on soaps. Where's the shame? If you can put out a one-hour show five days a week, at the very least it proves you're a hard worker.

Snowy Owls said...

I'm hoping for Miley and Chris Brown to get together. Match made in Hell.

Freya said...

Yes! I will never understand it.

Freya said...

I wouldn't be surprised if they have hooked up.

hollywood dime said...

Hannah Montana has been off the air for a few years now, right? Who was still buying those toys and crap?

KT said...

Wrecking ball. It's about what's she's doing to.herself.her.career.sigh.

B. Profane said...

"Miley did a great job on SNL. She was flawless in delivery and performance, akin to Justin Timberlake."

CDAN has become just a total whore site for flacks. Seriously, no one likes Cyrus or thought her SNL stint was good. No one says that who isn't paid to say that.

stigs84 said...

The Spice Channel, haha! Scrambled porn, a thing of the past

Tina Mallette said...

Sinead O Connor got it right - Miley with her millions should have smart people around her advising her and either they are idiots or yes people to Miley. Usually those people don't want the client to kill the golden goose that benefits them but maybe they are already looking for the next Disney star or she fired them and hired new yes people.

Tina Mallette said...

Even Billy Ray doesn't say he hates Achey Breaky Heart.

luvgossip said...

She wasn't bad on SNL. But you could tell she was reading lines off the teleprompter. Even when she was singing!

auntliddy said...

Whats her end game?

auntliddy said...

And who at disney is picking all these dysfunctional teens???? Is he or she like the nutjob whispherer?

Tina Mallette said...

question is do they become dysfunctional after working at Disney, they seem to be worse that those other kiddy channels don't they?

Her end game is Miley thinks she is as talented and smart as someone like Madonna.

Being a child star she is no doubt a diva spoiled brat used to getting her way and her filters are totally missing. Even Madonna knows just how far to take it and then pull back.

Count Jerkula said...

If Miley blows through her money, I hope it is by the time she is 25 so This Aint Hanah Montannna XXX is still worth viewing.

Or how about Backdoor Hannah XXX for the title?

If she goes with oversized breast implants it could be Hannah Mountaina XXX.

If she does I/R porn, they could play off the classic title OH NO! There's a Negro in My Daughter! and go with OH NO! There's a Negro in Hanna Montanna!

D Brown said...

I think she's extreme but I get her concerns. She trying to transition from gawky teenager to adult. Hannah, as a character is benign, but as a symbol its something she wants to forget.

V said...

She'll get invited back...

she was pretty funny...and the Hannah Montana thing was a joke as part of her monologue.

Ray said...

Count...TOOOO funny!

califblondy said...

Who doesn't want to kill Hannah Montana?? I only saw the Michelle Bachman video from SNL, but I thought she did a great job.

Looziana Magnolia said...

How about "Hannah Moan-tana"?

Chadboulet said...

It was the VMA after-party that she skipped, not SNL. All things considered, she wasn't great on SNL; not likable, or funny, just her usual bratty self.

northdallas40 said...

I wish Miley Cyrus never existed!!!!

northdallas40 said...

I wish Miley Cyrus never existed!!!!

slappywhyte said...

She actually did a good job singing and acting on SNL and I think I saw a pic of her at the SNL after-party, so...

It turned my opinion of her around.

MikeAdamson said...

I just watched video on Etalk of her arriving at the party so I'm pretty sure she was there. I'm not a fan but I do get a kick out of the haters.

mistang said...

She doesn't bother me at all. She looks like a 20 year old kid who has had no adult supervision and money to burn. Her performance at the VMAs reminds me of someone who went overboard at the club and forgot everyone was watching. Or the girl who got drunk and crazy at the party and everyone gets embarrassed. People are so judgemental. If she wants to get rid of Hanna Montana then why should we care? It's just a character; no one should take it personal. She's moved on and if she loses money by moving on then so be it. It's really not that big a deal.

Me said...

She hated Hanna Montana when she was on the show. The last season almost didn't happen. Don't you all remember, she was very vocal about HATING everything about the character, and said she was done. Her pa had a little come to Jesus meeting with her, and then he announced that Miley WOULD be meeting her contractual obligations. There were several changes made to the show to appease miss miley, including an entire new set that had the cast moving from the beach to a ranch. Anyway, Miley stated, many, many times, that she was not sweet, or girly, or a thing like Hanna Montana. She's so awkward now. And her fake teeth are too big (her mom has a similar pair). Watching her is painful. She's like the new kid in town who thinks she's badass because she's in the big city. But people see her as a hillbilly and laugh behind her back. She's not respectful, and shes not respected. This means people will be gunning for her. Her fall, when it starts, will be swift.
