I think Miley wishes she was the new Madonna but I think she still has a long way to go. The big things Miley is lacking are focus and true performance ability. I appreciate that she can carry a tune but she seems clueless about how to really express herself otherwise. That’s why Britney made a better comparison to Madonna in her day because she was out there being empowered and beautiful and sexual but was still dancing her ass off and giving amazing performances. Even now in Vegas her numbers have great production value.
Miley on the other hand seems to just be going for shock value to cover up the fact that she doesn’t know how to perform. So I’d put her more in the Gaga camp for that reason. To me being on stage is not about running around acting rowdy and calling that a message. People might be clutching their pearls in the short term but she doesn’t really seem to have anything provocative to say overall.
I do appreciate Miley’s punk rock spirit and hope that she will pull her performances together so they are less crude and sloppy. If she really worked on that – I think she could definitely be a force to be reckoned with in the pop world. She just hasn’t come anywhere near Madonna yet in my book.

I don’t agree with her use of the word and am glad she apologized but I don’t think her age should have anything to do it. People constantly calling her a senior citizen and telling her to go away is a form of discrimination and hating too IMO.
She will forever be effortlessly cool in my book. I can only hope that I am as fabulous and hip as Madonna when I’m in my 50′s!

Thanks for sharing Shannon!
I never knew much about him before so this interview totally won me over. I am definitely sucker for a man who identifies as a feminist.
After reading that ridiculous report of Elisabeth Hasselbeck saying that feminism is a thread to national security – this interview gives me hope.

What can one really say about this except YOU GO GIRL!

OMG I would be so excited if they somehow re-booted Twin Peaks! Best. Show. Ever.
Now I feel like canceling my plans this evening and digging up my The Diary of Laura Palmer book and Twin Peaks soundtrack and DVD’s instead!

As with all things in life – Britney did it better.

Lola is an absolute stunner. I predict an amazing future for her in whatever field she chooses. Also-I wish Madonna was my mommy.

Great read. I really appreciated his candor. I never really paid attention to the Jonas Bros and even though I respected that they played instruments – I found all of their voices just terrible.
But it’s nice to know that they seem to be nice down to earth guys. All the best to them!

I don’t know – I just feel bad making fun of Kanye now. Which makes me feel too guilty to laugh at a video like this one. He said all of that earnest stuff in his recent interviews on Jimmy Kimmel and Ellen and I feel like in his own way, he is asking for people to give him a break. He just seems clueless about how he comes off but I still somehow feel like his intentions with his “art” are pure.
My honest feeling is that he’s still deeply grieving for his mom and he has kind of gone crazy. Even though I can’t stand his fiancee – I genuinely believe that he is super sprung on her and is thrilled to be a new dad and feels he has this family he has probably been longing for. I figure everyone is entitled to their joy in life right?
Just my two cents. I just can’t hate on the guy for some reason. I can’t say I understand him at all but I do believe that he’s misunderstood!

I feel the same Trent – although I probably hate more things than I love about the show so far. I’ll still keep watching though, much like I stayed with Sex and the City until the end despite having a lot of problems with it (especially the movies!).
Even though I’m not particularly fond of Lena Dunham – it is impressive that she has so much creative control over the show. So I feel like I have to the support the show as a feminist on that level too.
The trailer looks promising so we shall see! xo
