In case you were wondering, Miley Cyrus is not calling off her marriage to Liam Hemsworth. Apparently this was a thing that was being reported yesterday (damn you, January Jones!), but Miley seems to think it's not true, and she's probably know, so we tend to believe her. She tweeted the following yesterday in response to the rumors:
I am so sick of La. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn't call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) March 6, 2013
Ah yes, the Twitter hiatus. Often a good idea for celebrities, but for better or worse, it never seems to last all that long. In Miley's case, it lasted for less than a full afternoon, as eventually, Miley realized she didn't have to get people to stop talking about her by avoiding social media—she could just let her music do the work for her:
my new music is gonna shut everyone up.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) March 6, 2013
not discussing anything but my music from now on.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) March 6, 2013
Sounds good to us. But uh, speaking of...are we gonna get that new music anytime soon? We haven't gotten anything new from Miley since 2010, and though we've heard a lot about this upcoming album's collaborators and what it's supposed to sound like and whatnot, we still haven't actually heard anything from it yet. C'mon, Miley. Give us something to shut us up already.
Protest music aside, there is a slew of good underground music out today
An invigorating slew of protest music hit the shelves today.
Detroit-based emcee Tee Grizzley collaborated with Queen Naija and the Detroit Youth Choir to craft a melodic ballad that attempts to open up a dialogue with police. Meanwhile, alt-Jazz pioneer Terrace Martin took a different approach in his collaboration with Denzel Curry, Daylyt, G Perico, and Kamasi Washington, with "Pigs Feet" being more of an angry f*ck you than an attempt at communication.
