MTV's Artist of the Year Is . . . Miley Cyrus
MTV has announced that their Artist of the Year for 2013 is . . . MILEY CYRUS. (???)
They explained this INTERESTING selection by saying that Miley's duet with ROBIN THICKE at the "VMAs" was the most watched video on their websites . . . and that the MTV web page devoted to Miley had more hits than any other artist's.
You heard that right . . . MTV named Miley the "Artist" of the Year, partially BECAUSE of her completely artless performance at the "VMAs". Let's hope this was just an OBJECTIVE honor based on Internet traffic.
For what it's worth, MTV's Artist of the Year in 2012 was ONE DIRECTION, and KATY PERRY was their selection the year before that. So, you know, they aren't exactly looking for a modern day BOB DYLAN or anything.
Katy Perry Says She Had to Block Her Republican Parents from Coming to President Obama's Inauguration
KATY PERRY'S parents are evangelical preachers . . . so not surprisingly, they're pretty hardcore conservative Republicans.
But in the new issue of "Marie Claire", Katy says that when they heard she was singing at PRESIDENT OBAMA'S most recent inauguration back in January, they were ALL ABOUT IT.
She says, quote, "They didn't vote for Obama . . . [but] they were like, 'We can come!' And I was like, 'No, you can't.' They understood, but I was like, 'How dare you?' in a way."
Adam Sandler is the Most Overpaid Actor of the Year
has named ADAM SANDLER the Most Overpaid Actor of 2013. For every dollar Adam is paid, his movies gross just $3.40.
The data was compiled before the release of this summer's "Grown Ups 2", which was a big hit. And he flopped pretty hard with his previous two movies, "Jack & Jill" and "That's My Boy".
Sandler is followed by Katherine Heigl, Reese Witherspoon, Nicolas Cage and Kevin James.
Justin Bieber Says He's Just a "19-Year-Old Boy"
We talk a lot about JUSTIN BIEBER drinking, smoking pot, hitting clubs and partying with women of questionable virtue all over the world. But apparently, it's all because he's just a kid trying to FIND HIMSELF.
And by holding him accountable for all the stuff he does, we're HURTING HIS FEELINGS.
Justin was on RYAN SEACREST'S radio show hyping his new movie "Believe", and he explained how he's still JUST A BOY.
He said, quote, "People don't get to see me, and that I'm really a 19-year-old boy. I'm becoming a man but I'm still 19, I'm still finding myself and when I have the media attacking me every day, it's no less bullying than what happens in schools."
"I think this movie really shows who I am as a person . . . I make mistakes growing up. I'm not perfect; I'm not a robot. People forget I'm a human being [and] I have to make mistakes and grow stronger."
Danica Patrick Is Happy That Trace Adkins Is Her Cohost for Tonight's ACAs
A lot of people were surprised when DANICA PATRICK was announced as TRACE ADKINS' cohost at the "American Country Awards". Even she was a little shocked when the producers offered her the job.
Even though she's been on TV a million times, this is uncharted territory for her. She says, quote, "I don't think hosting dinner at my house really counts."
What helped seal the deal is that she won't be flying solo. She says, quote, "With a guy like Trace who's done it for a few years and is such a cool, relaxed guy and so well-known and respected in the industry, and he has a great personality.
"We're going to have fun. I'm looking forward to it."
