I love this quote from Robin Thicke’s mom—that’s right, the mother of the guy pretending to ram it up young Miley’s ass:
“I don’t understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do,” the former Days of Our Lives actress said. “I think she’s misbegotten in this attempt of hers. And I think it was not beneficial.”
Don’t you know that it’s different for guys…
Have you seen the “Battle for the Best Song of the Millennium” showdown going on at Grantland? Major King Shit on Poop Hill contest underway. Applying a fun March Madness format to any old subject does not ensure a worthwhile contest. I see that “Hey Ya” is in the quarterfinals as a 3-seed. I heard that song on a(nother) commercial the other day. It’s a totally fun song, a nice Prince ripoff, and an excellent advertising jingle. But a 3-seed in any millennial showdown? That’s like “Knock Three Times” making it into the quarterfinals in a showdown among 20th century songs.
I’m sure I’m forgetting something else in the music world that’s hogging space this week.
