Miley Cyrus’ “Beach Weekend” Is An Adorable ‘Hannah Montana’-Era Jam: Listen To The Demo

Do you miss the old Miley Cyrus or simply need brief respite from the marijuana-fuelled, thong-rocking shenanigans of the Bangerz era? Well, you’re in luck! Over the weekend a previously unreleased demo from the glory days of Hannah Montana surfaced online and, despite its obvious rawness, it’s something of a jam.

“Beach Weekend” is a perky pop/rock anthem that positively exudes sunshine and happiness. “Every day up before the sun’s up, quick shower then dress and head to Starbucks,” chirps Miley over strummed guitars before the cheery chorus kicks in: “we’re going to beach this weekend!” I’m not sure what album this was recorded for but Smilers seem to agree that 2007′s Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus is the most likely candidate.

Miley Cyrus Strips Naked For Bondage-Themed “Tongue Tied” Projection: Watch The NSFW Video

Miley Cyrus was never going to let Rihanna steal her thunder with that eye-popping Lui magazine cover! She struck back today (May 1) by uploading an explicit Bangerz tour projection to YouTube (how long before they take it down?) — effortlessly reclaiming her throne as the queen of shock with the bondage-themed visual.

Directed by Quentin Jones, the black-and-white clip finds the 21-year-old literally hanging around with only pasties and a thong for coverage. By her standards, that outfit is actually quite demure but the S&M elements certainly spice things up. The video owes a large debt to Grace Jones (it “pays homage” to her Slave To The Rhythm album cover) but it’s still stylish and beautifully shot. Watch Miley’s NSFW antics after the jump. More »

It Takes A Village: 10 Pop Hits That Took At Least 6 Writers To Cobble Together, From “Drunk In Love” To “Timber”

Write On
Ahhh. Remember the good ol’ days when it only took one skilled tunesmith to write a hit single? Yeah — our minds don’t stretch back that far, either. In fact, if you have to travel in time, to “Somebody That I Used To Know” in 2012, to find the last single to top the Billboard Hot 100 with only one writer credited to it. (That would be Mr. Gotye himself, Wally de Backer.)

These days, it takes a small army to craft what we naive listeners would deem to be the simplest of songs. Remember Flo Rida‘s “Whistle”? You know — the chart-topping oral sex jam disguised as a radio-friendly, sing-song trifle for the whole family to purse their lips and blow to in the car? That one took no less than half-a-dozen writers to put together.

Below, we rounded up another 10 such pop smashes that required a team of musical geniuses — or at least Pitbull — to pen. Some may surprise you and even shatter the illusion of your favorite artists as unique jacks-of-all-trades, able to dash out catchy hits all by their lonesome.

Carry on to find out the wicked truth behind all the glitter, pop fanatics! More »

:: Rihanna is being sued by a former bodyguard for defamation. He is alleging that RiRi made offensive statements about him in an email and even went as far calling his sister. The matter will be heard by a judge in Ireland. [TMZ]
