The performance of Miley Cyrus at the VMA’s will be remembered for a long time, and certainly brought the pop singer no small amount of media attention. Blair Stover Hollywood has more on the story below.

Not long ago Miley Cyrus, a.k.a Hanna Montana, left everything that had to do with her Disney past behind, but this new bad girl image is finding mixed support with fans these days.

Miley took the stage to perform a live version of her newest popular single ‘We Cannot Stop’. The scenery was spectacular as Cyrus, a giant bear and lots of costumed bear dancers danced around the stage. The decor gave us a look into one of those spectacular performances that could’ve happened but the inevitable reared its ugly head. Robin Thicke came on stage to perform ‘Blurred Lines’ with Miley and combined the performance went from plausible to awful.

Many are finding offense in Miley’s performance, with her tan colored underwear and provocative bumping, grinding, and twerking throughout the routine. Thicke, however, was no better, singing mediocre at best and performance uninspired. With a Beetlejuice-esque suit, Thicke did little to impress.

Talk, however, continues to continue over this controversial performance indeed. While many are quick to point out Miley’s faults many argue that doing so without criticizing Thicke is indicative of a double standard.

So what are your thoughts on the entire affair? Was this artistic vision or was it perhaps just a ploy for more media attention from both? Let us know in the comments below!

Justin Bieber and Mally

August 9, 2013

Here at Blair Stover, we have been keeping up on the status of Justin Bieber’s monkey, Mally, who he had to leave in Germany after Bieber failed to provide the proper vaccination and import paperwork for the monkey when he arrived for his European tour in March.

At that time, it was reported that Bieber was given four weeks to return to Munich with the proper paperwork to release the monkey from quarantine. Authorities say that Bieber’s representation has reached out to the animal shelter that’s keeping Mally to ask if they know of a proper place to transfer the monkey for permanent care, as it seems that Bieber is no longer interested in keeping the monkey as a pet.

A spokesman for German customs reports the monkey will remain in the shelter until Bieber or Bieber’s attorney contacts customs directly. If Bieber wants to send Mally to a zoo, he will be responsible for the costs involved.

German authorities posted a public notice on July 30 urging Bieber to get in touch with them about an unpaid bill for his former pet. The notice states that Bieber has one week to pay 1,130 euros for the monkey’s care. If the bill goes unpaid, Bieber must pay the bill the next time he enters Germany. It’s reported that Bieber already owes Munich customs 5,000 euros on an unrelated matter.

The Bieber and Mally matter has caught worldwide attention, and has only added to the singer’s seemingly dissolving public image as a less-than-responsible figure.
