She is so patently awful.  Some people compare her to Madonna which is off the charts wrong.  Like or hate Madonna, she can dance, she studied dance, she also studied art, and she understands sensuality. 

Miley is a train wreck, the best thing she could do is learn to try to develop some sort of adult talent.

And it's funny TR is directing her, fitting even.  Unlike many people here I think Terry is a talented photographer, it's just that he so often lacks any taste.   But we all know tasteless sells and sells well it seems.

The most tragic part of this story is Miley's 15 minutes of fame has not even begun, we'll be suffering her for years to come.

Dear God. The poor girl has no talent so I would think the BEST thing she could do is be directed by Terry Richardson and roll around butt naked.

I approve wholeheartedly.

Flaunt it baby, flaunt it.

I should admit I could not bear to watch the entire Miley MTV performance nor could I finish her wrecking ball video. I felt too embarrassed for her.

Edit: according to this article Vogue had plans for her to be on the cover of the December issue, yet they've now canceled that idea.

Good teeth.
Nice bode. Which she now appears to want everybody to know about.
Minimal talent, so she hooks up with an equally talented person to produce a really stupid video.
Early Madonna wannbe.

Ohhh come on, what person her age doesn't show of their body.... Might as well do it when you still can and not when you are 80 with saggy tits all the way to your knees.

That's too easy and TR's poor editing skills are on display when you see Miley's nose painfully squished up against the chain on one scene.

Miley cannot song or dance, she's pure sex which is just fine but it's so tacky. I mean at now we know what she looks like when performing felatio but does that make it art or even good? And how about the Sinead O'connor crying bit? It's one cliche after the next which is fitting for TR.

And let the record stand I am not a TR hater but I recognize his often times tasteless and base work.

Don't care for his style of work at all, and as for her, she simply ain't pretty on a any level, she reminds me of Howard The Duck esp with this current look!

She seems to be a lost soul who's trying anything and everything to get noticed, and it's obviously working, but for all the wrong reasons!

I'm not a huge fan of Miley, but her recent songs have been catchy enough that I've caught myself dancing to it. And though I am not a fan of Terry Richardson as a person I do like his work yikes

Edit: I don't think Miley is ugly... She's a babe smile

I guess I'm old - but I've seen LOTS worse

Lots more excruciating

Lots more embarrassing stuff - - than that.

It's just kind of popular to trash on the girl now - The media and a lot of folks in general build people up - and are twice as happy to gleefully tear them down.

She'll not be able to do anything right for a while now - and she's not got enough talent to force people to re-focus.

I just feel really sad for her - so many people that may have liked her in earlier years - are now throwing shit.  It must hurt to be caricatured and sneered at by so many.

( Good Lord - it wasn't good - but, it wasn't THAT bad.)

The ball looked sexy, so did the meat on top of it. Didn't bother to turn up the volume to listen to the noise though.

She is slowly running out of aces to sell herself.

Richardson will move on, but pity those who sell their wares devoid of talent.

Well, I think that the ability to go through all of those gyrations while keeping her nipples hidden shows some talent.

It's fun to read all the negative comments pointing to her lack of talent, and then go look at the portfolios of the commentators. It's even more fun to read the profiles. You guys rock!

Agree.

I'm not a fan of either of them but I think the song and the video is as good as most of the current pop music. ..in fact I think it's better then most.

And I don't understand why people say she is ugly... she's pretty damn hot really.

Wonders of the modern digital vocal tuning software... kind of like airbrushing for audio.

Pretty good production however, just not a fan of both but gotta hand it to that bod wink

I have another profile for you and BTW...

I am like, WTF???? digitised vocals!!!
Sounds like every other wannabe musician marketed by the television's talentless shows.
She clearly lacks talent. Sell sex, sex sells.
