Conspiracy Theory Thursday: I Want to Beliebe

(But I Don't)


I Want To Beliebe

Though largely overshadowed by such moments as Nicki Minaj’s callout of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift being Taylor Swift, and Cyrus’s batsh*t, trippy performance with Wayne Coyne, Justin Bieber’s live medley of “Where Are Ü/What Do You Mean?” brought out the “wow” when he apparently broke down crying following his set. It was yet another noteworthy moment at the 2015 MTV VMAs. I have to admit, “Where Are Ü” is pretty catchy, but he lost me at “What Do You Mean?”

Mind you, the bridge in the song is a spoken word piece of sophomoric philosophizing, which I have transcribed below and made into an inspirational quote you’d see on Pinterest because it has all the emotional depth of a kumquat. (Actually, now that I really think about it, maybe that whole spoken word thing is perfectly in line with the name of the song.)


VCU Pep Band Reimagines Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball

Is a Miley Cyrus song better when it has nothing to do with Miley Cyrus at all? VCU Pep Band decided to test that theory when they tackled Miley's song, "Wrecking Ball," doing an instrumental (and pretty dope) version of the song during the VCU vs. George Mason game on Thursday. It's worth a full watch, but watch at 1:48 for the kitty in outer space, a nod to Miley's American Music Awards performance. Nicely done.

Miley Cyrus vs. Beyonce

Miley Cyrus is never one to shy away from the spotlight and she made headlines recently when some scathing anti-Beyonce quotes were attributed to her. According to one magazine, Miley told them that Beyonce's decision to have a baby "and all the crap it does to your body... will create a vacuum for fresh young faces to rise up and no one else can properly fill that void right now." The quote also said, "I got the total package you know, the curves, the rhythm, and the voice. I’m just the best." But Miley took to Twitter immediately and said the quotes were entirely falsified and insisted she admires Beyonce. So things are all good.


The Data Doesn't Lie: Miley Cyrus is Still a Hot Ticket

Miley Cyrus

For all of the controversy that Miley Cyrus has generated in the past few months, it seems like her upcoming Bangerz Tour is destined to be a bust, right? That, at least, is the impression one might get from the media and disgusted-sounding Facebook and Twitter comments after the overtly sexual performance with Robin Thicke and the "Wrecking Ball" music video. Is Miley's brand of edgy too edgy for fans, or more likely, their ticket buying parents?

Apparently not, because those fans and/or their parents are snapping up tickets for the tour in a big way.

This weekend at TicketNetwork.com, Cyrus' shows were the second biggest ticket seller, beaten out only by Trans-Siberian Orchestra*. Digging deeper, the Bangerz Tour made up 15% of all concerts tickets sold at TN.com during the weekend. The top concert event, again TSO, made up 19%. On the other side, tickets for the next biggest concert performer after Cyrus, Cher, made up just 4%.
