    That Gwyneth Paltrow diet story was the best!

    While I agree that Miley is pushing some pretty… edgy… limits I don’t think it’s out of the realm of artistic. As an observer of performing arts, I can see that many of today’s super-pop-stars aren’t actually creating this from their own inspiration, but rather are creating on the backs of performing artists who already push boundaries. In fact, I’ve just been exposed to the fact that much of Lady Gaga’s work is plagiarized by some exemplarily and under-appreciated performing artists. It’s utterly corrupt and sad.

    Superstars make the edgy more socially acceptable. A good thing? Perhaps. But I hope sincerely that it’s opening doors for people to search out the less hollywood’ized edginess of artistic vision.

    Regarding her distasteful “accessorizing” … not sure I see it in that light. Perhaps she does party with people of all shapes and colours and sexual orientation and gain inspiration from their kinship. Seems like North America could use a little more of that.

    Great list, as usual :) xoxo

    “Remember only God can judge ya…” Oh no, Miley. I can judge you too. Ew gross.
