Miley, ‘I’m A Huge Michael Jackson Fan’

Miley told MTV: ‘It’s just crazy again with the media and all that. Nobody ever wrote an article just to say, ‘Hey, Michael, we really appreciate what you do!’ I wish I would have had the opportunity [to tell him how I felt about him when he was alive]. Not enough people told him [how great he was] and I think it’s..

..sad that you have to wait till it’s too late. But I think he knows. I’m a huge fan of Michael Jackson. When I met Lady Gaga I was wearing a Michael Jackson T-shirt and, for me, that was completely surreal, because the female artist that inspired me and the male artist that inspired me is a lot of Lady Gaga and a..

..lot of Michael Jackson. And a little bit of a mix so that picture [in the MJ T-shirt meeting Gaga] means a lot to me. Again, I think God works in mysterious ways and had me wear that for a reason.’

    Miley is full of shit. She loves pop and she knows it.
    And uh, EVERYONE loves MICHAEL JACKSON. It’s not news if flippin Miley says she loves him.

    Don’t bitch, you know it’s true. You would say the same if Selena or Demi said they were fans -_-

    Thanks Miley Obvious. He’s Michael Jackson, the whole fucking planet is a fan.

    And furthermore, who’s going to say they’re NOT a fan of MJ? He was a musical genius and he’s dead.

    Oh yea, and he’s the King of Pop. That shit you apparently “don’t listen to”.

    Her dumbness is profoundly expanding.

    Did you guys hear that Michael Jackson was the king of like punk-edgy-rock-n-roll-non-mainstream music? Yeah, lady gaga too. That’s why miley is such a huge fan of his. :) yeaaaahh. Not pop. Pop sucks, right Miles? She listens to ZERO pop.
    ZERO.
    Miley also thinks that her younger self would think that she’s a sellout! Yup, but that’s not what her music is about. Her music is “deep” and “edgy” – oh my my my is it edgy.
    Take this really poetic line from her latest deep-and-edgy song: “I go through guys like money flying out their hands/they try to change me but they realise they can’t.”
    heck, here’s another: “…have to get my way/24 hours a day/ cause I’m HOT like that” so deep…

    i love miley but i lol’d.

    IDK I’ve learned to not take things she says seriously though. Miley’s your typical pretentious 17 year old. She’ll grow out of it.

    I think she only ever made the anti-pop music “declaration” to seem cool and aloof. Like she doesn’t have to try, she is just that cool. She doesn’t listen to Jay Z, she is just that cool.

    She’s one the Disney channel and sings pop music. She’s as white bread as Wonder, so she really needs to STFU.

    wow. i just laughed so hard at her oblivious stupidity. First off, a sign from God? really? Go back to school, and maybe learn some new vocab words to put in your lyrics.

    Second, i just gotta repeat what everyone has said. She hates pop? shes just trying to get attention for “being different”, when really, shes completely mainstream. Everyone she ‘looks up’ to is POP, and so is her “deep, and meaningful” songs about how much she wants to be a slut, but she feels like the media wont let her.

    i don’t think she purposely lies about it. Maybe she listens to it so little that when they ask her it’s easier to say she doesn’t listen to it at all? Just because she slips up once doesn’t mean that she’s “full of shit”. You shouldn’t be so judgmental. Are you saying you’ve never told a lie?

    “I LOVE Lady GaGa.”

    “A lot of [pop] songs are super shallow, but this music isn’t.”
    “I got trough guys like money flying out their hands.”
    “Every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention/Like I’m under inspection/ I always get a 10, cause I’m built like that.”

    i wasn’t “shoving that picture on peoples faces” or kissing her ass, geeez, I only posted it once to prove a point. An album does not have to stay number 1 forever to be successful. It’s doing better than anything selena has put out (not hating, i actually thinks she’s okay). And the song, can’t be tamed, is currently at #14. That is pretty close to top ten and the MV stayed #1 for weeks. so shut the fuck up and sit down. thank you : )

    Why do you always have to compare me to her? Stop fucking using that as an excuse. this is about her and how she has false claims about her likes and dislikes. I bet she lied when she said she hates Glee. I eman if she does, ok. But she really needs to watch what she says because she ends up changing the story right after. I’m just saying this cause she has a habit of dissing and complaining about people who say stuff about her when the girl needs to wake the fuck up and realize her words and actions are always the cause for it! In a bad sense anyway. Seriosuly, Miley can do whatever she wants. I don’t care. She just needs to realize that lying about something about her to make her seem cool is really stupid and I don’t mean that for just her, I mean it in general too.

    Seriously? She thinks that her wearing an MJ shirt is a sign from God? No, she wore it because she jumped on the bandwagon and did what was “cool”. I hated those kids at my school who were wearing MJ shirts because everyone else was doing it.
