Miley Cyrus is on the brink of a huge comeback.
The Disney wild child has been quiet on the career front lately, but she chose yesterday’s MTV VMAs as the big day to come out of hiding and inform mankind about her impending return to the top of the charts.
During one red carpet interview, Miley revealed that her forthcoming album is , “the biggest record I’ve ever had”, and that she plans to deal with it first before she starts planning her wedding to Aussie hunk Liam Hemsworth. In another, she gushed about the project, promising that her new single will drop this year and that the album’s sound is some kind of mixture of pop, country, and hip-hop.
Miley’s description was definitely giving me some female Kid Rock realness. I’m not quite sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing yet.
On top of her comeback announcement, Miley also relaunched her official website. The new look MileyCyrus.com comes with a tonne of ‘edgy’ new photos of Miley with her freshly short ‘n’ shaved blonde ‘do, a very Maroon 5-esque ‘M’ logo, and best of all, the debut of ‘The Backyard Sessions’.
What’s ‘The Backyard Sessions’, you ask? Earlier this summer, a pre-makeover Miley got her band together and filmed a bunch of acoustic covers of her favorite songs. The first performance was released with the new website –a rendition of Jeff Buckley‘s “Lilac Wine”– and Milegend absolutely slayed it. She made the song her own, going for a more powerful vocal delivery as opposed to Buckley’s relatively restrained original.
Not many pop artists –especially ones from Disney– could cover the likes of Bob Dylan and Jeff Buckley without completely fucking it up.
Y’all haters need to respect Milegend. Change. Yes we can.
