  • ‘I Know What Colour My Skin Is’: Miley Cyrus Hits Back At Racial Jabs In Twitter Rant

The singer’s transformation has caused quite the stir

Miley Cyrus isn’t usually one to keep quiet so it comes as no surprise that the songstress has hit back at her critics, slamming those who have apparently been making racial comments possibly related to her new urban look.

The ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer has caused quite the stir with her drastic transformation from cute Disney actress into a rebellious pop star over the last few months with many poking fun at her twerking, edgier image and friendships with celebrity pals such as Pharrell Williams and Mike Will Made It, but it appears the singer has been receiving nasty comments in regards to her race, prompting Miley to address the taunts on Twitter.

Without directly revealing the origin of the criticism, Miley retaliated tweeting: “I know what color my skin is. you can stop with the friendly reminders b***h.”

Miley later posted a photo with lyrics taken from her latest smash hit song, which read: “#itsmymouthicansaywhatiwantto.”

Prior to the rant, Miley shared photos and tweets from the recording studio alongside the likes of French Montana and Mike Will Made It, both of whom are working on her upcoming album ‘Bangerz.’

‘Bangerz,’ which will be her fourth studio album, is already shaping up to be a hit with the former Hannah Montana star revealing the record will feature a fleet of big name stars including Big Sean, Ludacris and her close pal, ‘Get Lucky’ singer Pharrell will appear on the ‘Bangerz’ album.

‘We Can’t Stop’ is currently at number one in the UK scoring Miley her first chart-topper in the country while it has jumped back up to number two on the Billboard charts.

Miley Cyrus Recruits Big Sean, Ludacris For Bangerz, But Who’s Her Favorite?

10 08 2013

‘Big Sean and Ludacris and, of course, Pharrell has done a bunch of my records, so I’m really excited about that,’ Cyrus tells MTV News.

For the past year, we have watched Miley Cyrus go from Disney darling to a twerk-loving pop diva.

She shocked many with her questionable lyrics (is it “Molly” or “Miley”?) and video for “We Can’t Stop,” but Cyrus is just getting started, and on her fourth album, she’s doing things her way.

“You know, there’s definitely been times where I’ve had to fight for what I want on this record,” Cyrus told MTV News on the set of her VMA promoshoot. “But I think everyone now is starting to see that I had a vision, and I’m really excited about it. It’s just gonna be — it’s gonna be crazy. It’s gonna be single after single after single.”

Which is why Cyrus, who is nominated for three MTV Video Music Awards, appropriately titled the album BANGERZ. “If you don’t know why my record is called BANGERZ you’ll know as soon as you hear it. Nothin but #BANGERZ,” Cyrus tweeted shortly after revealing the album title when she reached 13 million followers on Twitter.

And with the roster of A-list artists — including Wiz Khalifa — she has lined up for the album, it may be hard to disagree.

“I have a lot of features on my record,” Cyrus said. “But some of my favorite … I get to work with Future, who’s like my favorite kind of new artist right now, even though he’s not that new now. All his music is everywhere. But he’s just someone that I really, I love working with. I love writing with him. Him and I wrote a bunch of songs on this record together, and he’s featured on one of them. Big Sean and Ludacris and, of course, Pharrell has done a bunch of my records, so I’m really excited about that.”

Cyrus doesn’t seem to be finished adding collaborators yet. On Wednesday, Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” producer Mike Will Made It posted a photo on Instagram alongside the former “Hannah Montana” star and Nicki Minaj with the caption “Beauty and the Beast.”

Now, even though Cyrus is teaming up with a long list of hip-hop collaborators, Pharrell, who produced the upcoming effort, says we shouldn’t expect it to be a hip-hop album.

“It’s just gonna sound like her and her influences, but it’s not that hip-hop heavy,” Pharrell told MTV News. “That’s not what she does, that’s not where she comes from. It’s a part of what she loves, which is a very big difference.”

Miley Cyrus Admits Being With Juicy J Creates A ‘Crazy Kind Of Vibe’

The twerking queen tells MTV News what it was like guesting on Mike Will Made It’s ’23.’

Mike Will Made It has produced massive hits for A-list artists, including Rihanna and 2 Chainz, but now, some of his famous friends are returning the favor on his debut single, “23.”

Mike recruited Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J and his “We Can’t Stop” collaboratorMiley Cyrus for the track, which was previewed in a 25-second snippetthat featured Wiz rapping over a mid-tempo beat and Cyrus singing, “I’m naughty by nature / Like I’m hip-hop hooray.”

MTV News recently caught up with Cyrus, who released the title of her upcoming album, Bangerz, earlier this week, on the set of her VMA promo shoot, where she talked about why she was so eager to get on the track.

“He had had this track ’23’ with Wiz and Juicy already, and it’s just on some cool like old-school J sh– and that’s what’s really cool about it,” she said. “And like people wouldn’t expect me to be on a song about Jordan… right now all they really see of me and Juicy is me at his concert way too twerked up, they haven’t seen what we can do when were together and when were together it’s this crazy kind of vibe because it’s not what people would really expect.”

Mike told MTV News he was a bit skeptical at first to put Cyrus on the track, but after laying down a verse, which showed off Cyrus’ rapping skills, he admits, she “killed it.”

“I’m definitely not a rapper. It’s my rapping. It’s my own swag. I hate that word,” Cyrus said. “But it’s just the only way I can really describe it, it’s just kind of my own thing where it’s not really rapping, it’s just kind of on my own thing it’s just kind of on my own sh–.”

Cyrus and Mike have already been thinking up treatments for the upcoming video for “23,” but admits she’s feeling the pressure to top herVMA-nominated video for “We Can’t Stop.”

“We’ve been working on the treatment every day,” Cyrus said. “And trying to make sure this video is crazy because I have a big follow-up with “We Can’t Stop,” so this video has to be crazy.”

Demi Lovato Calls Her VMA Friends ‘Fierce Competition’

19 07 2013

‘Heart Attack’ singer dishes on ‘Best Female Video’ nominees, including pal Taylor Swift, Pink, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus.

If you’re Demi Lovato, chances are you’re feeling good right now. The pop singer not only premiered her brand-new co-directed video for “Made in the USA” Wednesday, but she also just got nominated for “Best Female Video” at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

“I think that’s amazing. My reaction is just so excited, it’s an honor just to be nominated,” Lovato told MTV News at the Pop-Tarts Crazy Good Summer concert in Philadelphia, hours after the nominations were announced. “And every time I’m nominated for something I get really, really excited. You never know what will happen, but I’m up against some fierce competition so I’m not getting my hopes up.”

The singer is up for the Chris Applebaum-directed clip “Heart Attack,”the lead single off Demi. The video showed off an edgier side of Lovato, who demonstrated the raw emotion of the song through visuals, by painting her hands black to almost mask herself from falling in love.

The talented ladies she’s up against include Rihanna (“Stay”), Pink (“Just Give Me a Reason”), Taylor Swift (“I Knew You Were Trouble”) and Miley Cryus (“We Can’t Stop”). And because Lovato is friends with several of her fellow nominees, she doesn’t expect there to be any hard feelings if her buddy takes home the award August 25 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

“Since I’ve started in this business, we’ve all been up against each other, and at the end of the day, it’s an award,” Lovato said. “If you do win it you get really excited and you’re proud of it for the rest of your life, but that’s how I feel about it.”

And with her die-hard fan base, the Lovatics, backing her up, there’s a good chance Lovato could be taking home a KAWS-created Moonman, and she already knows exactly where she will put it.

“In my head I’m like decorating my apartment, and I’m like, ‘OK, if I do win, I’ll get another Moonman on my mantel,” Lovato said. “I already have the spot picked out so that’s if…I already have one so that’s good enough for me.”

Lovato performed during the 2012 VMA pre-show and took home her first award that year — “Best Video with a Message” for her hit song “Skyscraper.”

“It’s iconic, there are so many amazing artists that win VMAs and to be amongst those people is incredible,” Lovato said. “And just the iconic Moonman award, you see it and you’re like ‘Wow, I grew up watching this and now I have one’ and it’s pretty amazing.”

  • Demi Lovato Didn’t Want To Be In ‘Made In The USA’ ‘At All’

Demi Lovato can now add another accolade to her long list of accomplishments: director.

On Wednesday, the singer premiered the video for her patriotic pop song “Made in the USA,” the second single from her latest album, Demi.

The video, which she co-directed alongside Ryan Pallotta, follows the tale of a young couple — played by “Friday Night Lights” actress Aimee Teegarden and “90210” actor Dustin Milligan — whose classic American romance starts off innocent and pure, but is shortly put to the test as Milligan’s character is sent off to war.

When MTV News recently caught up with Lovato, whose “Heart Attack” clip is nominated for Best Female Video at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, she revealed that the idea for “Made in the USA” has been long in the works.

“I was listening to it, and that’s what came to mind. There was no reason, it was just something in my mind while I was listening to the song,” Lovato said backstage at Philadelphia’s Pop-Tarts Crazy Good Summer concert. “And I knew it was going to be my next single from my album and this is what I do: If I know what my next single is, I’m immediately thinking of the concept. I wanted it to look like a short film.”

With its cinematic look and in-depth story line, many Lovatics might have been surprised that Lovato — who acts as a soundtrack to their love story, appearing only in performance shots — didn’t cast herself as the leading lady.

“I want people to connect with the characters, and I actually didn’t want to be in it at all,” Lovato admitted. “I wanted to be all behind the camera, and then my label and everyone was like, ‘You have to be in the video, it’s your song.’ So, I was like, ‘Alright, fine, I’ll be in the video.’ And that’s why it’s just a few performance shots, and I also wanted to tie the performance into how they met.”

Staying behind the camera instead of in front of it gave Lovato the chance to focus heavily on her newfound passion for directing, which was impressively demonstrated through the entire video, especially during what Lovato calls one of her favorite scenes to shoot.

“When he was fighting in Afghanistan, the shots are really close up on his face, and he is hiding behind something, and he is fully loaded, and he’s in the middle of a war, and it was really great,” Lovato said. “Dustin is such a good actor, and he was crying, and there were bombs going off and everything. That was just the coolest scene because that scene looks like it’s from a movie, so I was really excited.”

Lovato, who said she wants to continue to direct music videos not only for herself, but for other artists, told us there was one scene that knew she had to perfect: the moment the war-torn couple reunites.

“That shot really had everyone’s attention, and if it doesn’t come across the right way, it takes the emotion out of it. I really wanted to draw emotion from people, so I’m really, really glad it turned out the way it did,” Lovato explained. “Because my mom cried, my sister cried, and I was like, ‘Yes!’ ”

  • ‘We Can’t Stop’ Video Director Talks Miley Cyrus’ Party Girl Rep And Twerking Bears

You know what, one of those portable speaker things would be awesome to have at the pool. I really need some Eos lip balm. And you know what would be fun? Let’s make a skull out of the leftover French fries in my car.

 Miley Cyrus has taken over my brain, y’all.

The singer delivered her newest music video nearly two days ago, and I’m only a slightly embarrassed to admit that I’ve listened to the song at least once every time I’ve gotten into my car since.

Not only does the song refuse to let go of its hold on your brain, but its corresponding video has forced images of rebellion and product placement onto the psyche of anyone who’s watched it from start to finish.

Thankfully, Celebuzz had the opportunity to speak exclusively with Diane Martel, the director of said music video (who’s worked with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Ciara and Robin Thicke) — and she was kind enough to shed some light on what in the hell everyone was thinking when they included twerking dancing bears and amputated limbs.

CB!: How did the Miley Cyrus-Diane Martel collaboration come to fruition?

DM: Miley and I met through a mutual friend and collaborator, Pharrell Williams. He thought we would get along. We spoke about friend love and the joy of sleepless nights spent in revelry with a tight crew of friends.

CB!: What’s the message you wanted the video to convey?

DM: I think the indirect message is to be free. I enjoy the idea that an American pop icon can have surreal imagery in her video. Miley has a very open mind and, like the lovely kids born with the internet as their companion, she’s got a wealth of references to play with. We spoke at first about intimacy between friends, but I think the video is more about her intimacy with her audience. She’s very playful and silly in the video. She’s not self serious and boorish like so many singers.

CB!: Is there an underlying message Miley wanted to come through?

DM: She’s into living freely and being expressive. Its a great time for her and she’s enjoying her life. She is not a kid who is obsessed with her career in a way that precludes having normal friendships and normal fun.

CB!: Some have wondered if the video is a parody of Miley’s reported reputation as a party girl. What do you think?

DM: She’s no more of a party girl than any other American kid. If you can’t party when you are her age, when can you party?

CB!: Does that mean we’re saying goodbye to the Disney girl her fans have grown up with?

DM: Don’t we all grow up?

CB!: When it came to the interesting and artsy pops of video surprises — for example, the French fry skull, piñata, bed of bread, giant dancing bears, Miley’s doll-kissing moment, and tons of twerking — was all of that Miley’s idea?

DM: They are giant blunts [in the pinata].

Miley found a photo online of the French fry skull and sent it to me. It was a beautiful French fry skull. We were inspired by it and recreated it our own way. After we filmed we found out that it was created by a fine artist named Christopher Chiappa.

The taxidermy was something Miley mentioned early on, and my fabulous art director, Georgia Walker, found in a smarmy prop shop. The lyric with the multiple taxidermy deer image is very touching. It almost makes us cry when we see that shot. The doll is a weird reference to a Helmet Newton photo. I worked on the idea with a friend, Aramis Isreal, who is a creative director and has worked on a lot of successful ads. We gathered a lot of blogged images and worked them into the shot list.

The bread was my idea, bread/cash, etc. And I have a background in performance art, so a lot of the stuff came from the corners of my mind.

The cut off fingers came about when we were on location scouting in the kitchen and I said, ‘oh someone has to cut off their fingers.’ I grew up on Devo and John Waters, so that might inform some of this stuff.

CB!: How involved was Miley in the conceptual planning?

DM: She let me go, she’s amazing to work for.

CB!: Tell us your favorite part of the shoot.

DM: I loved the whole shoot, I cant wait to work with her again. She is the sh*t.

CB!: To wrap it up, you must have a funniest (and fun) memory of shooting with Miley. What is it?

DM: I asked her to sing “Jolene” for me and she did when she was in the pool. She was so beautiful singing that song, so free and sweet. And her voice is quite beautiful, that was really touching.

The whole thing was funny. The teddy bear twerker scene was pretty f*cking funny. She kept dancing really crazy style and turning toward the camera doing really funny ‘modeling.’ We were dying calling it her modeling. She’s a very, very funny smart girl. Look out world.
