Miley Cyrus shines in epi​sode of ‘Black Mirror’ as Ashley O

In case you have been living under a rock, Miley Cyrus not only released the first third of her seventh album, “SHE IS MILEY CYRUS.” But she also starred in an episode of the Netflix series “Black Mirror.” Before she becomes the first person to get on the Billboard Music charts under three different names, it’s time to talk about Miley’s episode on this series. It’s the best of both worlds.

Meet Ashley O, aka Hannah Montana 2.0

Head like a hole, black as your soul

“Black Mirror” is a British Anthology series. So what this means that none of the episodes are standalone episodes and have nothing to do with each other. So can watch Miley’s episode without having to worry about getting caught up first. The series follows what can happen with new technology in modern society and the side effects of what would happen, whether good or bad. If you know what “The Twilight Zone” is, it’s similar to that.

Miley’s episode is entitled “Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too.” It follows Ashley O, a pop star that is starting to feel the pressure of being something that she doesn’t feel like it’s her. Her management team is doesn’t care and puts creative constrictions on her. Ashley is looked up by a fan named Rachel, who gets an AI doll of Ashley called Ashley Too who she uses to as a friend. Rachel hasn’t been able to make friends since the death of her mother. Rachel’s sister, Jack, isn’t a big fan of Ashley O or the Ashley Too doll.

This episode is a fantastic episode. The episode has issues when it comes to a coherent plot and pacing. There are too many plots going on that it’s all over the place. You think it is going one way, but then it goes another and forgets where it was going to go. Like there was a plot started about Rachel and Jack dealing with the loss of their mother, but it was thrown out during the middle and final act of the episode. Then it gets resolved by the end, but there’s not any real resolution.

The primary arch of the episode is more on Ashley O, and her management controls her so she can be who they want her to be due to how much money she is making for them. Without going too much into the story and spoiling it, it’s incredibly relevant to pop music in this day and again. More so in particular to the #FreeBritney movement that happened a couple of months ago. Honestly, Ashely O has a lot of similarities to Britney Spears.

The pacing of the episode is the biggest problem. It drags through the beginning and part of the middle acts. It’s not dull per se but it doesn’t peak your interest until the true intentions of the Ashley O and her management team come into the light. Most of the beginning is just getting to know Rachel and Jack, which is fine but the plot isn’t really strong enough to carry the show. Especially when it doesn’t proper development.

“Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too” isn’t a bad episode but rather a good one. It just suffers from too many plots that create a slightly incoherent plot at times and pacing. I do recommend checking it out because Miley’s performance in it was everything. Miley was the highlight of the episode, especially as the Ashley Too doll. I got “Hannah Montana” vibes from the wig, and that’s when nostalgia hit. I liked the episode and hope they do more with Ashley O.

Miley Cyrus returns to form with ‘She is coming’

After two years of no word on an official album, Miley Cyrus has returned and given the world a new album. But unlike her previous albums, Miley decided to torture us by splitting her album into three different EPs. I think that Miley is just looking to torture us with anticipation. Let’s talk about “SHE IS COMING” from Miley Cyrus. There’s going to be a lot of capitalization.

Swish, Swish motherf***er

“SHE IS COMING” is the first of three EPs from Miley Cyrus. Along with “SHE IS HER,” and “SHE IS EVERYTHING,” this makes up her seventh studio album, “SHE IS MILEY CYRUS.” Yep, Miley is trying to kill us. “SHE IS COMING” is Miley’s first EP since 2009’s “The Time of Our Lives.” Miley reunites with Mike Will Made It as well as teaming up with Mark Ronson again, whom she previously worked with on their single “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart.”

The EP is the love child if all of her music got together and had a love child. I’ll be frank; I was worried about this album because the promo videos on Miley’s social media made it look like she was making a “Miley Cyrus and her Dead Petz 2.” I don’t know if you remember that album, but it was a hot mess. I was pleasantly surprised when I started listening, and it was more like “Bangerz” meets all her other discography.

The EP is only six songs and it honestly the perfect amount for it. Each song brings something different to the overall feel and theme. It has a little bit of everything. From the female empowerment anthem “Mother’s Daughter” to about having sex and not being the same person as before in “Cattitude,” this EP has something for everyone on the album.

My only complaint with the album is that the flow of the EP is nonexistent. It doesn’t feel like there is no rhyme nor reason. It’s slightly all over the place. It’s not a bad thing, but it does create an uneven listening experience. Like you go from a dance song to two songs that are slower in pace before going back to a dance song. I, personally, would like it to be evener, with the song listing and flow. It feels like 4 out of 6 songs have been slow songs.

“SHE IS COMING” is a great album and feels like the right step in where Miley Cyrus is going with her music. I enjoyed listening to the EP and cannot wait to hear what comes next. I just wished that the album has had a better flow and was more spaced out with the songs. But overall, it’s a good taste of what is next to come, which will be on the EP “SHE IS HERE.” Sidenote: I’d lose my cool if there’s a second album called “SHE IS HANNAH MONTANA.”

Flashback to Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth first meeting in ‘When I Look at You’

In case you didn’t know, Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus got married. I thought it was time to celebrate their love because it’s adorable. In honor of their love, I thought I would go back down memory lane and talk about “When I Look at You.” I would rewatch “The Last Song” but let’s be real – that shit was terrible.

Omg they were just little babies

Get ready to feel the feels

“When I look at You” was released in February 2010 as the final single from Miley’s underrated EP “The Time of Our Lives” and as a promotional song for her upcoming movie “The Last Song.” It’s a mellow and power ballad in the soft rock genre. Honestly, the production on the song is extremely well done. The subtle strumming of the guitar in the middle of the song to the powerful beat underneath Miley’s killer vocals during the bridge. It’s just so well done.

The lyrics are catchy and strong that you can’t help but just enjoy the song. It’s honestly one of my favorite songs that Miley has put it. It’s just so raw and emotional and to think that she was only 17 years old when she released. Those vocals are everything and they are still everything. Like I honestly forgot how good she was when she was younger and for how long she’s been performing and releasing music for. Between her own music and “Hannah Montana,” she has like 10 albums under her belt and she’s only 26 years old.

If you haven’t seen the video or heard “When I Look at You,” then you are missing out. It’s honestly a classic that should be on every love song playlist. It just one of those songs that will last forever and won’t be outdated. It also doesn’t hurt to listen to live versions. Like Miley performs it at her friend’s wedding and it’s literally everything, EVERYTHING. There’s also a Spanglish version where Miley’s singing in English and David Bisbal is mixing in Spanish and English. If you couldn’t let, I pretty much love this song. Hence why I’m not officially review it or rating it.

Inspirational Quotes from Hannah Montana

You get the ‘Best of Both Worlds’

It was only a matter of time before I adventured into the gave to give the world inspirational quotes from the late Hannah Montana. It’s still the Hannah Montana we all grew up loving but just a little more inspirational. What I did was I took part of her songs, I also threw in some Miley Cyrus lyrics from that double album, and put it so pictures that I don’t own.

        That twirl is iconic. She’s a super, supergirl

If you don’t know who Hannah Montana is, then you are on the wrong blog. Hannah Montana is the titular character that Miley Cyrus played on the Disney Channel of the same name. She was the pop star Miley became when she wanted to have two separate lives. When you really think about it, this show was fucked up.

Without further ado, here’s the slide show of all the inspirational quotes you will ever need. I also took some time to turn a few dirty because why not.
