Chart preview: Does Sugarland keep Kings of Leon from ruling the Billboard 200?

Posted Oct 24, 2010 12:35 AM By Melinda Newman

Country will rule again on the Billboard 200 for the fourth time in the last five weeks as Sugarland’s “The Incredible Machine” is poised to power itself to No. 1 next week. While it’s still possible that  Kings of Leon’s “Come Around Sundown” will surpass “Machine,” it looks like Sugarland will sell around 200,000 compared with KoL’s 180,000.

Debuts dominate the Top 10, according to Hits Daily Double. Coming in a distant third will be Rod Stewart’s “Fly Me to the Moon,” his fifth edition of standards, with around 75,000 copies,  Elton John/Leon Russell’s “The Union” in fifth place, “Glee” cast’s “Rocky Horror Picture Show” set at No. 6, Shakira’s “Sale de Sol”  at No. 7 and Christian rock band Third Day’s  “Move” at No. 10.

This week’s chart topper, Lil Wayne’s “I am Not a Human Being, drops to No. 4. Top 10 mainstay, Eminem’s “Recovery,” lands at No. 8.

Miley Cyrus just got really honest about the hellscape that was 'Hannah Montana'

Posted Aug 14, 2015 1:18 PM By  

Miley Cyrus got "some body dysmorphia" from her "Hannah Montana" days. Are we surprised by this? (We aren't.)

"I was told for so long what a girl is supposed to be from being on that show," said Cyrus in a new interview with Marie Claire. "I was made to look like someone that I wasn't, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn't on that show, it was like, Who the fuck am I?"

We should all be thankful that those soul-sucking days are over, not only for Miley's sake ("It was like Toddlers & Tiaras'," she went on) but for our own: who knew she was such an off-the-cuff, freewheeling spirit underneath those pounds and pounds of Disney pageant makeup?

A few other choice quotes from the interview:

On the nightmare that was "Hannah Montana," Part 2: "Every morning, I was getting coffee jammed down my throat to wake me up. I just had to keep going, be tough, be strong. Everything happened to me on that set."

On the nightmare that was "Hannah Montana," Part 3: "I would have anxiety attacks. I'd get hot flashes, feel like I was about to pass up or throw up. It would happen a lot before shows, and I'd have to cancel. Then the anxiety started coming from anxiety. I would be with my friends, thinking, I should be having so much fun. You get in this hole that seems like you're never going to be able to get out of."

On wanting to get it on with Joan Jett: "When [I] introduced Joan Jett into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I said, 'The reason I'm here tonight is because I want to fuck Joan,' everyone laughed because they thought it was a joke. It wasn't." (I believe you, Miley.)

On unrealistic beauty standards: "I'm probably never going to be the face of a traditional beauty company unless they want a weed-smoking, liberal-ass freak. But my dream was never to sell lip gloss. My dream is to save the world."

After you're finished pre-ordering your copy of Marie Claire's August issue (out August 18!), be sure to check out their damning expose on "The Coolest New Beauty Products to Have on Your Radar." ("From Louboutin lipsticks to micellar face wipes"). Marie Claire: fighting body dysmorphia one $300 bottle of Olaplex Hair Perfector at a time.

Meet the 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Queens who performed with Miley Cyrus at the 2015 VMAs

Meet the 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Queens who performed with Miley Cyrus at the 2015 VMAs

Posted Aug 31, 2015 12:18 AM By  

What can you say about Miley Cyrus' closing number at the 2015 Video Music Awards? There was a ridiculous death drop (thank you Laganja Estranja). There was a kiss with reigning "RuPaul's Drag Race" champion Violet Chachki. Oh, and yes, Ms. Vivacious looked a week bit tired, but chances are unless you're a fan of the only hit show on the Logo TV network you likely had no idea who those drag queens dancing around Ms. Cyrus were.

Let us enlighten you. 

It turns out Cyrus is such a big fan of "Drag Race" and drag in general that she sat through taping of the season 7 finale this past May.  She smartly put some of the better dancers around her on the front part of the stage including the previously mentioned Estranja, Alyssa Edwards (whose audio can be heard in Cyrus' new song "Dooo It!") and Shangela (a trio who tour together under the moniker Haus of Edwards) as well as Gia Gunn and legendary New York City club kid Vivacious.  Some of the other big names included Miss Fame, Pearl, Courtney Act and, arguably the most well known drag queen on the stage, Willam

Now, if you watch "Drag Race" regularly you may be wondering, "Why wasn't Alaska 5000, Katya, Adore Delano or Detox there?"  Well, it's entirely possible they are sequestered shooting the highly anticipated second season of "All Stars," but don't take my word for it. Just check out what the Nancy Drews on reddit have dug up.

To find out more about some of the other famous queens who took the stage with Miley check out the embedded gallery below. But before then, enjoy that death drop one more time...

Miley Cyrus drops 'And Her Dead Petz' album and a trippy video for 'Dooo It!' post VMAs

Miley Cyrus drops 'And Her Dead Petz' album and a trippy video for 'Dooo It!' post VMAs

Posted Aug 31, 2015 3:22 AM By  

After hosting the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards Miley Cyrus released a video for the song that closed the show, "Dooo It!"  Oh, wait. That's not all. Cyrus actually released an entire album entitled "Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz" which contains 23 new songs.  It's currently not available for purchase, but can be streamed on soundcloud and her official website.  At this point, it seems as though Cyrus is releasing the album for free.

An introspective work inspired by the passing of her favorite dog, 10 of the album's tracks were either co-written or produced by The Flaming Lips.  In an interview with the New York Times, Cyrus credits Flames frontman Wayne Coyne as being her artistic mentor on the album.  The release is an exercise in Cyrus' artistic freedom and isn't part of her contract with RCA Records. As she told the Times, "This music was not meant to be a rebellion,” she said. “It was meant to be a gift."

There are some familiar names who stop by, however, including Big Sean on "Tangerine" and Ariel Pink on "Tiger Dreams."  Some of the other standout tracks upon first listens include "Karen Don't Be Sad," "BB Talk," "1 Sun" and the strangely moving "Pablow the Blowfish."

You can check out the orally fixated video for "Dooo It!" embedded in the post.
