Miley Cyrus Coming Back to Philly

Miley Cyrus and her Dead Petz (aka the Flaming Lips) have tacked on Philly to a limited-run club tour of six U.S. cities. She’s coming to the Electric Factory on December 5th.

The singer is back in the public eye again after hosting stints on the MTV Music Awards and this weekend’s debut of the 41st season of Saturday Night Live. In the middle of all that she released a new album, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, a stripped-down, no-twerking-in-sight collaboration with Flaming Lips that she dropped for free via her Smiley Miley record label in August. She performed two songs from the album on SNL this weekend, including this particularly soul-baring number:

Miley Cyrus to Induct Wynnewood Rock Goddess Joan Jett Into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Details are emerging about the April 18th ceremony to induct six new music icons into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The ceremony will take place at Public Hall in Cleveland, where Wynnewood native Joan Jett & her Blackhearts will be inducted alongside Lou Reed, Green Day, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bill Withers, and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

As tradition states, younger artists come in to help induct the legends. Beck, Karen O, and fun.’s Nate Ruess will perform a tribute to Reed, Penn alum John Legend will perform for Withers—a perfect match-up—and Miley Cyrus will induct Jett.

Jett and Cyrus have performed together before—on this Oprah Winfrey music special, which gives you somewhat of a taste of what you might expect out of Cyrus’s performance:

The ceremony, which will air live on HBO on May 30th, will also include appearances by Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Fall Out Boy, and Patti Smith among others.

10 Dreadful Entertainment-Themed Halloween Costumes That Shouldn’t Exist

‘Tis the season for those pop-up Halloween stores that open at vacant former mega-bookstores or old, abandoned Circuit City locations: they are warehouses of spooky crap that reminds me why I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in ages. Just the other day, I spotted two recently opened locations: one on Chestnut Street between 15th and 16th and another in Cherry Hill across from the mall.

But even worse than these temporary warehouses of inflatable ghost lawn decorations: the costumes.

People, these things aren’t cute. They aren’t funny. And they look like someone with the social IQ of, like, negative ten came up with the ideas.

Below are ten of the absolute worst entertainment-themed costumes you can find at the earlier mentioned Halloween outlets (these all came from Spirit Halloween). Please, proceed with great caution…

Flyers Playoff Game Bumps Miley Cyrus Concert

NBC 10  reports: “The Philadelphia Flyers announced this evening that Miley Cyrus’ BANGERZ TOUR, originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 22nd, will now take place on Monday, April 21st. Live Nation rescheduled the concert to accommodate the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Game three of the first-round of the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the Flyers and New York Rangers will take place April 22.”

Which raises the obvious question: Anybody want to guess the over-under on the number of crestfallen Miley fans we’ll see at the arena that Tuesday night?

WATCH: Man Dresses Like Miley, Twerks in NYC Subway

Enjoy this video of a guy in NYC who tied a fringed scarf around his chest, slipped on a leather thong and twerked it out in a New York subway to Miley’s “We Can’t Stop.” Sure, the song’s getting a little old, but those moves are oh, so fresh.

Happy Monday afternoon!


Album Review: Miley Cyrus’s ‘Bangerz’

miley albumThe first time I listened to Bangerz, I didn’t like it.  There was something missing that I  couldn’t wrap my brain around … until I saw Miley’s solid turn as host and musical performer this weekend on Saturday Night Live. It was during her opening monologue, when she proclaimed that Hannah Montana was murdered. Suddenly, something clicked. I gave it another listen and fell in love.
