The indie blogs and main stream ones are loving the story today that Miley Cyrus told to morning zoo radio hosts Johnjay and Rich about her being insulted by Radiohead at the Grammys. The Teen Queen wanted to meet the band in private backstage. Turns out her manager was told to 'Pull as many strings' as possible with Radiohead's people to make that happen. The word back from Radiohead's people was 'We don't really do that.'
We all know that Radiohead were the only thing worth watching at the Grammys, but turns out that Miley wouldn't even know that because she left before they played. "I left 'cause I was so upset. I wasn't going to watch. Stinkin' Radiohead! I'm gonna ruin them, I'm going to tell everyone."
There is something sickening about her sense of entitlement. Also if she really was a fan you would think she would know that Radiohead works in a very different world than she does, one not tied to the Hollywood "strings" her manager could pull. You feel like she is a little girl who thinks she has to be a fan, and not actually one. She reminds me of Violet Beauregarde in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. And being someone I can only imagine has had to do far to many things she did not want to because her handlers made her, you would think she would have some regard for artists who can get away with not playing those games.
Hear the full interview after the break -- that is if you want to pound your head into your desk at work in frustration.
