Is Miley Cyrus Becoming an Ungrateful Brat already?

SHARE

cyrusIn dire need of genre clarification.

Miley Cyrus was recently interviewed where she admitted that she never heard a Jay-Z song before in her life, despite the lyrics in her “Party in the USA” track that claim she bopped her head to his songs. In her defense she says, “I don’t know, I didn’t write the song, so I have no idea. Honestly, I picked that song because I needed something to go with my clothing line. I didn’t write it and … I didn’t expect it to be popular, originally. It was just something that I wanted to do, and I needed some songs and it turned out for the best.”

Continuing on she says, “I’ve never heard a Jay-Z song. I don’t listen to pop music.  ‘Party in the U.S.A.’ is not even my style of music.” Can somebody notify her that Jay-Z isn’t a pop star, and that she in fact, is a POP STAR? She goes further when asked if she would ever cover her dad’s (Billy Ray Cyrus) 1992 hit, “Achy Breaky Heart,” by saying, “No, no thank you. That’s like covering a Jay-Z song. That’s not going to happen.” Did she really put her father, who is a country singer, in the same category as Jay-Z, a cocaine-dealer-turned-rapper?

I understand that she is still young, but I believe she is at the age where she has to comprehend that her music is pop. She is a pop star, with pop songs, that is on the pop charts. Her music is not rock, hip-hop, alternative rock, or country. Until the day we see her young tween fans head banging their heads in tune with guitar riffs and Cyrus screeching out every word of her song, she will be a pop star. Thankfully, she has a great PR agent who taught her to be grateful as she also stated, “I’m really blessed for it to have done as well as it has. Totally blessed. God has definitely put me in an amazing position with amazing people.” Let us hope that God speaks to her and gently whispers in her ear, “YOU ARE A POP STAR. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, ACCEPT IT.”

    At the end of the day, her statements just confirm the fact that she is but a mere manufactured puppet, rather than a real artist. On her “Breakout” POP album that she was so proud of, she wrote a lot of the songs herself — how can she be proud of an album that is full of songs that she doesn’t enjoy or listen to? I really want to hear how she would describe her “style of music.” Seriously though, what’s so wrong about being a pop star??

    PS. I’m going to go mix some orange juice with my cereal to try to grasp the concept of not having to like pop music to make it. Thanks for the tip, Scallywag!

  • That’s an interesting concept- it’s like saying you don’t have to like the food you are cooking before you eat it. One should try that more often.

    She never says that she isn’t a pop-star in the interview, she just says that she doesn’t like pop music. You don’t have to like pop music to make it.

    you’re wrong, technically pop music is a genre that was developed from the mid-1950s as a softer alternative to rock ‘n’ roll and later to rock music. Popular music is not a genre.

    Technically, Jay-Z IS a pop star. He creates and preforms popular music.
