Remember that time Miley Cyrus grossed me out? Oh wait, let me be more specific. In her latest venture in all things sleazy and a little queasy, Miley released the music video for her latest single, “Wrecking Ball.” While the song itself is actually a pretty decent ballad, the music video is a not-so-decent tossed salad.
The video basically focuses on Miley LICKING a sledgehammer. That ain’t Liam Hemsworth, girl! Licking a sledgehammer is some kinky Gallagher shit that I do not subscribe to. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen Miley’s tongue more than her dentist has, and that’s a problem. Keep that thing in.
In the video, she goes on to swing naked on a wrecking ball — because why not? Miley’s antics have gone so far that they might have even cost her a Vogue cover. Apparently, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour was so turned off by her VMA performance that she canceled Miley’s cover. Be careful, Ms. Wintour. Miley has shown what she could do with a sledgehammer. And it’s not pretty.
In some social media news, Twitter is releasing an IPO! No, it’s not a rap album. It’s an Initial Public Offering, which means that Twitter is looking to become a publicly shared company. That’s right. YOU can own a piece of the Twitter universe. And who wouldn’t want to own things like, “Nite! Eyes closing. SO TIRED” (@cher). Truly amazing. Since this is only a step toward the stock market, there is no known value to how much a single stock holding will be. But we don’t have to look too far into the past to see how social media fared on Wall Street with Facebook’s initial foray in 2012 being a complete disaster. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m still waiting for LiveJournal to give it a go.
And to end on a light note, Nicole Kidman was knocked to the floor on an NYC sidewalk. Aw. The actress was apparently struck by a paparazzo on a bike, and she took a tumble. The biker was charged with reckless driving, and Nicole Kidman was charged with reckless acting. (I still haven’t gotten over “The Golden Compass.”)
