RCA President on Miley: ‘Clearly after [MTV’s Video Music Awards], her fans and people [in general] were looking for the next ‘Miley event. We feel like [the video] over-performed, and we were very pleased with the pickup.
The video is obviously high-quality, and the song is beautiful and wonderful. It’s one of the songs that convinced us to sign her.’ Miley set to smash the ‘Saturday Night Live’ crowd with her first No. 1 single during her hosting/ performing gig on Oct. 5.
Pharrell on Miley: ‘She’s really eclectic, she’s a Sag(ittarius), so she’s young and fiery and has been doing it for a long time. (She) has a really great voice and she kind of knows what she wants.
So I wouldn’t rush to judgment so fast. I would sort of pace myself because you guys are in for a long journey.. her godmother is Dolly Parton. So I wouldn’t rush to judgment so fast. I mean, twerking is like a household phrase because of who? Right?’
Former Hannah Montana costar RJ Mitte told Hollyscoop: ‘She is pretty cool. One of my very first jobs was ‘Hannah Montana.’ How does he feel about her behavior: ‘I’m a little bit surprised by it. When you get told what to do every day of your life, I am sure you go a little crazy after a while.’
So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy told E!: ‘Of course, kids are always trying to break the mold, but I didn’t really care for it, to be honest with you. I think she could have done the same thing with something a little bit more on and something more classy. She’s gorgeous. I felt like, ‘Oh, you’re trying to make yourself look so bad in a desperate attempt to get acknowledgment. She certainly found it.’
