Miley Cyrus … HO, HO, HO!!!!
For Miley Cyrus what are the holidays without some Christmas “Twerky”? Obviously the 21 year old Cyrus could care less about being on Santa’s naughty list as she continued her raunchy behavior that has given her new found fame, or is it infamy? In typical Miley Cyrus fashion, she opted for naughty and not nice during her festive performance at the radio station concert at the KIIS FM Jingle Bill in Los Angeles. Way to keep it classy Miley.
While performing tracks like “Party In the USA,” “We Can’t Stop,” and “#GetItRight” in her now trademark high-cut bikini-bottoms the singer was flanked by a dancing Christmas tree, little human reindeer and Santa. And rather than sitting on Santa’s lap like most good girls do, Cyrus put her usual bump and grind on a rogue Mr. Claus. (Somewhere, Mrs. Claus is looking for a divorce lawyer.)
Country Music Singer Wayne Mills Shot & Killed by Pit & Barrel Bar Owner Chris Ferrellby in Nashville, TN … Supposedly Self Defense Over Argument Over Mills Smoking in the Bar
44 year old country singer Wayne Mills was shot by ‘Pit & Barrel’ bar owner Chris Ferrellby at the downtown Nashville, TN bar early Saturday morning. Mills, lead singer of the Wayne Mills Band, later died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. According to Ferrellby, he shot Mills in self-defense after the two got into an altercation because Mills was smoking in a non-smoking area of the restaurant. Really, the use of deadly force for smoking in a non-smoking section? I guess smoking really does kill. One would suspect that there has to be more to this story. The Nashville metro police continue to instigate the shooting.
Nashville police on Sunday said they are still investigating a fatal shooting in the early hours of Saturday morning that left a country singer dead inside a downtown Nashville bar.
Wayne Mills, 44, was shot by Pit and Barrel bar owner Chris Ferrell, police said. Ferrell told police he shot Mills in self-defense following an argument over Mills smoking in the bar. Mills later died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
“We’re investigating Chris Ferrell’s claims of self-defense,” said Kris Mumford, a police spokeswoman. Ferrell is not in custody and there have been no arrests, she said.
Mills toured with the Wayne Mills Band, which often performed on the college circuit. The music was “outlaw/southern rock flavored,” according to the band’s website. Early in their careers, country music stars Jamey Johnson and Blake Shelton and American Idol winner Taylor Hicks had all opened for the band.
Last Honky Tonk
On a personal note, I have actually seen Wayne Mills perform and in a day and age where Country music has become more main stream and one can’t tell the difference between pop and country, you certainly could with the Wayne Mills Band. Although I am not a huge country fan, it is refreshing when you are in a “Honky Tonk” to hear more traditional country music. How very sad. Our prayers go out to Wayne’s family, loved ones and friends.
Taylor Hicks posted on Facebook, “My good friend Wayne Mills passed away in Nashville. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. RIP Wayne he was my buddy. -Taylor”
ABBA IS TIMELESS …
Woo-Hoo, you gotta love this, Sweden’s greatest export and legendary band ABBA is considering a reunion in 2014 on the 40th anniversary of their music hit Waterloo. The 63 year old Agnetha Faltskog spoke about a reunion in a recent interview. Easily one of my favorite groups of the 1970′s. Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad will be playing their classic hits for the first time together since the band broke up in the early 80′s and they went onto their solo careers. This is one reunion tour performance I would be willing to pay for. According to the Daily Mail, Faltskog told the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag: ‘Of course it’s something we’re thinking about. There seem to be plans to do something to mark this anniversary in some way. But I can’t say at this point what will come of them.”
It is more than 30 years since their acrimonious split, and 13 years since they turned down a $1billion offer to reunite.
But it seems legendary Swedish pop group Abba may take the stage again, after blonde singer Agnetha Faltskog revealed they are thinking about re-forming.
The 63-year-old – who has been seen as the main barrier to a reunion for years – said the group may mark the 40th anniversary of its first hit Waterloo with a new concert performance next year.
One of the best comments I have ever read about ABBA … “ABBA makes my feel like 17 and look like 35, unfortunately my passport says 63.”
How fitting as Barack Obama seems to have met his “Waterloo” as well
The legendary Swedish pop group ABBA is mulling a possible reunion next year, singer Agnetha Faltskog said in a German newspaper interview Sunday.
Next year marks the 40th anniversary of the band’s first hit “Waterloo”, which won them the Eurovision song contest and catapulted them to fame.
“Of course it’s something we’re thinking about,” 63-year-old Faltskog told the weekly Welt am Sonntag.
“There seem to be plans to do something to mark this anniversary in some way. But I can’t say at this point what will come of them,” she said.
My Top 10 ABBA songs, what are yours?
- Waterloo - “My my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender,” he’s not the only one! This video is fantastic, other than the obvious. Check out at 1:02 the 70′s cameras … classic!!! Who needs an iPhone
- Dancing Queen cc- Who didn’t roller-skate to this song with the lights down and the strobe light on? Friday night and the lights are low. Looking out for the place to go. Where they play the right music, getting in the swing. You come in to look for a king. Anybody could be that guy. Night is young and the music’s high. With a bit of rock music, everything is fine.
- Knowing Me, Knowing You - Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa). There is nothing we can do. Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa). We just have to face it, this time we’re through. (this time we’re through, this time we’re through This time we’re through, we’re really through). Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go. Sadly, yes.
- Take a Chance on Me – the video is so Brady Bunch.
- SOS – What ever happened to our love? I wish I understood. It used to feel so nice, it used to be so good. So when you’re near me, darling can’t you hear me S.O.S.
- Mamma Mia – Mamma Mia, here I go again. My my, how can I resist you? Mamma mia, does it show again? My my, just how much I’ve missed you. Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted Blue since the day we parted. Why, why did I ever let you go? Yup.
- Does Your Mother Now – Hmm, this was a big hit in my high school, wonder why?
- Honey, Honey - Agnetha WoW, ok I admit it, one of my first crushes.
- The Winner Takes It All – What a voice … The winner takes it all. The loser standing small. Beside the victory. That’s her destiny.
- Name of the Game - If I trust in you, would you let me down? Would you laugh at me, if I said I care for you? Could you feel the same way too? I wanna know…
Honorable mention, Anni-Frid Lyngstad (solo) - I Know There’s Something Going On
Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood Mock Obamacare at 2013 CMA’s … “Obamacare by Morning” … “Over 6 People Served”
Southern country cooking … Obamacare, that’s niiice.
Last night in Nashville, Tennessee, country music giants and co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood started the 2013 CMA Awards by mocking Obamacare and the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov. OMG, too funny! But what else would one make fun of than what is the biggest joke going in pop culture today? Paisley and Underwood said nothing that was false. However, the Obama White House was probably not laughing as millions watched as the CMA’s shredded the disastrous rollout of Obamacare with newly crowned entertainer of the year George Strait’s song “Amarillo by Morning” renamed … “Obamacare by Morning, Over 6 People Served!!!”
“ObamaCare, what’s that?” Paisley asked Underwood.
“Oh, it’s great!” Underwood quipped. “I started signing up last Thursday and I’m almost done!” The “Blown Away” singer proceeded to help her co-host sign up for ObamaCare and “join the six other people” who have reportedly signed up successfully for the healthcare service.
The Blaze has the unhinged reaction of the LEFT and the Obama sycophants who one, cannot laugh at something that is obviously funny and two, go mental at anything that dare make fun of their Obamamessiah.The skit was funny enough, but to see and read the LEFT’s unhinged reaction, that is just priceless.
American rock singer, songwriter and guitar legend Lewis Allan “Lou” Reed passed away Sunday at the age of 71 at his home in South Hampton, NY on Long Island. The cause of death was not provided; however, Reed underwent a liver transplant in May 2013. On a personal note I was saddened to learn this news as I was a huge Reed fan. Having older sisters that introduced me to his music at a young age, I just loved his sound and song writing. From his days with the Velvet Underground to going solo, when music was music, what a tremendous talent … he will be missed. Thank you for your music and Rest in Peace.
And for one final time, let’s ‘Take a Walk on the Wild Side’
The condolences and well wishes are pouring in on Lou Reed’s Facebook.
Official Lou Reed website.
Lou Reed, a massively influential songwriter and guitarist who helped shape nearly fifty years of rock music, died today on Long Island. The cause of his death has not yet been released, but Reed underwent a liver transplant in May.
With the Velvet Underground in the late Sixties, Reed fused street-level urgency with elements of European avant-garde music, marrying beauty and noise, while bringing a whole new lyrical honesty to rock & roll poetry. As a restlessly inventive solo artist, from the Seventies into the 2010s, he was chameleonic, thorny and unpredictable, challenging his fans at every turn. Glam, punk and alternative rock are all unthinkable without his revelatory example. “One chord is fine,” he once said, alluding to his bare-bones guitar style. “Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you’re into jazz.”
Lewis Allan “Lou” Reed was born in Brooklyn, in 1942. A fan of doo-wop and early rock & roll (he movingly inducted Dion into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989), Reed also took formative inspiration during his studies at Syracuse University with the poet Delmore Schwartz. After college, he worked as a staff songwriter for the novelty label Pickwick Records (where he had a minor hit in 1964 with a dance-song parody called “The Ostrich”). In the mid-Sixties, Reed befriended Welsh musician John Cale, a classically trained violist who had performed with groundbreaking minimalist composer La Monte Young. Reed and Cale formed a band called the Primitives, then changed their name to the Warlocks. After meeting guitarist Sterling Morrison and drummer Maureen Tucker, they became the Velvet Underground.
Guest on Night Music w/ David Sanborn 1989 TV
The cause was liver disease, said Dr. Charles Miller of the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, where Mr. Reed had liver transplant surgery earlier this year and was being treated again until a few days ago.
“I’ve always believed that there’s an amazing number of things you can do through a rock ‘n’ roll song,” Mr. Reed once told the journalist Kristine McKenna, “and that you can do serious writing in a rock song if you can somehow do it without losing the beat. The things I’ve written about wouldn’t be considered a big deal if they appeared in a book or movie.”
Mr. Reed played the sport of alienating listeners, defending the right to contradict himself in hostile interviews, to contradict his transgressive image by idealizing sweet or old-fashioned values in word or sound, or to present intuition as blunt logic. But his early work assured him a permanent audience.
Chris Brown in trouble again …
Singer Chris Brown and his body guard were arrested Sunday morning in Washington, DC for felony assault after allegedly attacking a man outside of a DC hotel. His body guard was identified as 35 year old Christopher Hollosy. If convicted, Brown could face up to four years in prison for the assault charges. What a shock, Chris Brown in trouble again. The incident occurred at 4:30 AM. As reported at WJLA, just hours before, the singer performed at a Howard University homecoming after party at The Park at Fourteenth.

Miley Cyrus Reminds Us Forever that She is No Longer Hannah Montana with a Raunchy Sex Act at the MTV Video Awards
ARE YOU KIDDING ME, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?
Hannah Montana, I mean Miley Cyrus … not only was your act a despicable display of ranch and filth, it was also, old, tired and already been done. Madonna, the Material Girl, should be suing you for plagiarism of her acts of debauchery. Thank you for confirming the fact that I never need to ever watch the MTV Music Awards. During her performance, Miley’s gyrations that looked more like a night at the strip club than an award show was passed off as dancing. Just curious, can you dance? No one expects the MTV Awards to look like the Grammy’s, but c’mon man. How about producing a show that your target audience can actually watch?
From the UK Mirror:
Her hair was even more annoying, twisted up into small buns on the top of her head.
And while the techno/flamenco vibe definitely got her noticed it wasn’t exactly hitting any fashion high notes.
It was pretty much down hill all the way as Miley took to the stage and stripped down to a teddy bear leotard and then a nude PVC bikini.
CNN: Miley Cyrus twerks, stuns VMAs crowd.
Hannah Montana Miley Cyrus pics from the New York Daily News. But she accomplished what she set out to do … shock folks so people would talk about her and provide her PR. Because after all in the entertainment business, even bad PR is better than no PR. The shock was certainly on display from Will Smith and family as the following pic was Tweeted and went viral.
Question, what ever happened to My MTV that started off its presence on the airwaves with the song, Video Killed the Radio Star?
Country Singer Mindy McCready Dead at 37 of an Apparent Suicide, Self Inflicted Gun Shot Wound … Rest in Peace
The troubled life of country singer Mindy McCready has come to an end.
Country singer Mindy McCready died Sunday afternoon at the age of 37 of an apparent suicide from what sis being reported at a self inflicted gunshot wound. The Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office is stating that deputies were dispatched to the home of McCready around 3:30 PM in Heber Springs, Arkansas after gun shots were reported. Police found Mindy McCready on the front porch with a single self inflicted gunshot wound. McCready was pronounced dead at the scene. McCready has had a long and troubled past in dealing with her demons. She has been arrested multiple times on drug charges and probation violations and has been hospitalized for overdoses on several occasions. McCready had attempted suicide twice before, once in 2005 and again in 2008. Also, the father of her youngest child, record producer David Wilson, was found dead in his home just last month on January 13, 2013 of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Mindy McCready was such a talent, but just could not deal with her demons. May she finally rest in eternal peace.
Mindy McCready “You’ll Never Know”
Mindy McCready (November 30, 1975—February 17, 2013)
Mindy McCready, the country singer who soared to the top of the charts with her debut album, “Ten Thousand Angels,” but struggled with substance abuse, served time in jail and fought a lengthy battle with her mother over custody of her son has died of what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. She was 37.
Deputies from the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a report of gun shots fired at McCready’s Heber Springs, Ark., home at around 3:30 p.m. today.
There they found McCready on the front porch. She was pronounced dead at the scene from what appeared to be a single self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.
20/20 from ABC News : Mindy McCready Tells Her Story … Sadly she talks about living for her son Zander. That came to an end today
More on the life and times of Mindy McCready and her star that flamed out far too quickly. Mindy McCready was a Nashville, TN sensation at the age of 20 and took the country music industry by storm. It’s just a shame and should be a wake up call to all as to the real dangers of substance abuse and major depression. Like many of the situations we have seen with mass murder violence, we really need to take a look at the mental health care system in this country. All this talent and she could not defeat the demons.
She arrived in Nashville in 1994 with tapes of her karaoke vocals and earned a recording contract with BNA Records.
In 1996, her “Guys Do It All the Time” hit No. 1 and its dig at male chauvinism endeared her to females. Her other hits included “Ten Thousand Angels,” also in 1996, and her album by that title sold 2 million copies.
However, personal problems plagued her beginning in 2004 and included a custody battle with her mother over one of her sons.
McCready took her older son Zander from her mother and the boy’s legal guardian, Gayle Inge, in late 2011. She fled to Arkansas without permission over what she called child abuse fears. Authorities eventually found McCready hiding in a residence without permission and took the boy into custody.
She and her boyfriend David Wilson had a son, Zayne, in April of 2012. The older son has a different father.
Maybe now Mindy McCready can finally rest in peace. I would rather remember Mindy from her early days in Nashville when her life and career seemed so promising. Mindy McCready’s lyrics of Ten Thousand Angels are rather prophetic on this sad day where she took her life … “It’s time to face my weakness, Look him in the eye. Lord knows it won’t be easy, But I’ve just gotta try.”
Mindy McCready – Ten Thousand Angels
Speaking of the devil
Look who just walked in
He knows just where to find me
Here we go again
I can tell he’s gonna ask me to dance
But that’s not as far as he wants to go
I need ten thousand angels
To help me tell him no
Lead me not into temptation
Heaven help me to be strong
I can fight all that I’m feeling
But I can’t do it alone
Help me break this spell that I’m under
Guide my feet and hold me tight
I need ten thousand angels
Watching over me tonight
It’s time to face my weakness
Look him in the eye
Lord knows it won’t be easy
But I’ve just gotta try
I can’t let myself get lost in his arms
That’s how I got my heart broke before
I need ten thousand angels
To walk me out the door
Seven-time Grammy award winner Alanis Morissette is going forward with her concert in Israel and is defying the Muslim boycott and death threats. She is scheduled to give a concert in Tel Aviv on Monday, December 3, for the first time since she performed in Israel in 2000. Morissette will not back down to the pressure bullying and threats. As stated at Legal Insurrection, it appears to be “courage week” in Canada as last week Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird provided strong support for Israel in the UN and unlike Stevie Wonder, Morissette went forward with her concert.
The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, however, is urging her to cancel at the last minute, due to the recent Gaza conflict and ongoing political situation.
“We would find it especially disturbing should you choose to play in Israel given its recent onslaught on Gaza,” the campaign group said in an open message to the vocal artist. “Palestinian civil society groups are calling on artists to shun Tel Aviv in the same way that South African activists called on artists to boycott Sun City.”
“We hope that you will not be persuaded by the argument that music builds bridges and can bring smiles to people’s faces, thus hopefully spreading a message of peace,” they added. “Any message of peace you hope to bring will be drowned by Israel’s well-oiled publicity that will use you to rebrand itself as a normal state that promotes music and culture.”
