Miley Cyrus drops 'And Her Dead Petz' album and a trippy video for 'Dooo It!' post VMAs

6 hours ago

After hosting the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards Miley Cyrus released a video for the song that closed the show, "Dooo It!"  Oh, wait. That's not all. Cyrus actually released an entire album entitled "Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz" which contains 23 new songs.  It's currently not available for purchase, but can be streamed on soundcloud and her official website.  At this point, it seems as though Cyrus is releasing the album for free. An introspective work inspired by the passing of her favorite dog, 10 of the album's tracks were either co-written or produced by The Flaming Lips.  In an interview with the New York Times, Cyrus credits Flames frontman Wayne Coyne as being her artistic mentor on the album.  The release is an exercise in Cyrus' artistic freedom and isn't part of her contract with RCA Records. As she told the Times, "This music was not meant to be a rebellion, »

Nicki Minaj sniped Miley Cyrus at the VMAs, and it was legendary

7 hours ago

Nicki Minaj won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video ("Anaconda") and concluded her acceptance speech with some heavy-handed (though sarcastic?) barbs aimed at host Miley Cyrus. Said Minaj, "And now, back to this b*tch who had a lot to say about me in the press the other day. Miley, what's good?"  Minaj was referring to Cyrus' recent interview in The New York Times where she gave the following comment about Minaj's tweet that MTV snubbed her in the Video of the Year category. "What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind... It’s not very polite. I think there’s a way you speak to people with openness and love. You don’t have to start this pop star against pop star war... I know you can make it seem like, Oh I just don’t understand »

The Best and Worst of the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards

8 hours ago

The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards was a strange, shocking success. Miley Cyrus hosted the big event, made a big announcement at the ceremony's end, and introduced a bunch of excellent performances. It wasn't a flawless event, but there was chaos (read: screentime for Kanye West) to make it far better than the average awards telecast.  Here's the best and worst of the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.  »

Meet the 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Queens who performed with Miley Cyrus at the 2015 VMAs

9 hours ago

What can you say about Miley Cyrus' closing number at the 2015 Video Music Awards? There was a ridiculous death drop (thank you Laganja Estranja). There was a kiss with reigning "RuPaul's Drag Race" champion Violet Chachki. Oh, and yes, Ms. Vivacious looked a week bit tired, but chances are unless you're a fan of the only hit show on the Logo TV network you likely had no idea who those drag queens dancing around Ms. Cyrus were. Let us enlighten you.  It turns out Cyrus is such a big fan of "Drag Race" and drag in general that she sat through taping of the season 7 finale this past May.  She smartly put some of the better dancers around her on the front part of the stage including the previously mentioned Estranja, Alyssa Edwards (whose audio can be heard in Cyrus' new song "Dooo It!") and Shangela (a trio who »

Read Kanye's insane, amazing Vma Video Vanguard speech

9 hours ago

Miley Cyrus may have dropped a surprise album at the end of the VMAs, but the real star of the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards was Kanye West, who spent over 12 minutes on his Video Vanguard Award acceptance speech. It was a shocking, weird, longwinded, confusing, kind of rad monologue. It was the Ted talk he clearly wanted to give.  From TVLine, here's the transcript: Bro! Bro! Listen to the kids! … First of all, thank you, Taylor, for being so gracious and giving me this award this evening. I often think back to the first day I met you, also. You know, I think about that when I’m in the grocery store with my daughter and I have a really great conversation about pressed juice, and at the end, they say, ‘Oh, you’re not that bad, after all.’ And when I go to a baseball game and 60,000 people boo me, »

‘Falling Skies’ series finale: Showrunner David Eick answers your burning questions

10 hours ago

“The fight isn’t over ’til it’s over,” Colonel Weaver reassured members of the 2nd Mass on more than one occasion. Now it really is over: “Falling Skies” aired the finale of its fifth and final season tonight on TNT. Warning: Spoilers Ahead for “Reborn,” the series finale of “Falling Skies.” Tonight’s finale concluded the tale that began with a ragtag team of alien invasion survivors and ended with that same group of survivors becoming heroes, leading the fight to claim back their home, Planet Earth. Tom Mason and co. have battled all manner of extraterrestrial creatures, gruesome weapons that manipulated once-loyal members of the 2nd Mass to turn on their own, and fellow humans (non-alien-manipulated ones) who were plenty troublesome in their own selfish or fearful agendas, as if a powerful alien threat weren’t trouble enough. After the final push brings the 2nd Mass to Washington, »

Let's talk about the end of 'Show Me a Hero'

11 hours ago

A few thoughts on the end of "Show Me a Hero" coming up just as soon as we get our clams to go... I said most of what I had to say about this wonderful miniseries before it debuted, but now that all six hours have aired, there are some things that are easier to discuss now. Start with the suicide of Nick Wasicsko, which I inadvertently learned while looking up some details about the Yonkers court case, but which ultimately didn't diminish my appreciation of that part of the story. If anything, knowing where Nick was going to end up made the unwritten "...and I'll show you a tragedy" half of the miniseries' title hit even harder. Nick wasn't the only hero in this story — and, as the miniseries detailed, it was as much the work of all the lawyers involved as it was his attempts to get some »

Taylor Swift's 'Wildest Dreams' video: Has she jumped the shark?

11 hours ago

Taylor Swift just premiered "Wildest Dreams," the fifth video from her smash album "1989." The song itself is an airy, romantic ballad, but the video is a literal epic, a throwback to "Out of Africa" featuring Taylor and Scott Eastwood in African grasslands filming a movie. Taylor looks great. Couple of issues: It feels a lot like her "Style" and "Blank Space" videos, which teemed with luscious images and melodramatic acting. It's also not engaging enough. Scott Eastwood is easy to look at, but he's not the movie star this video wants us to think he is. Unfortunately, "Wildest Dreams" is not special; it's just expensive. Taylor Swift has officially moved from unassuming country songstress to overspent video icon, and she'd be better served by under-indulging us with her next video offering. We need fewer lions and giraffes in her videos and more charisma.  »
