In A Battle Of The Pop Stars, Whose Promo Image Wins: Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry?

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | September 6, 2013 | Comments ()


Matt Bomer responds humbly and adorably to a fan-based petition for him to replace Charlie Hunnam in 50 Shades. Because Matt is always adorable, and 50 Shades is not. (ET Online)

If you feel like crying today — and I’m totally with you — here are 28 moments that prove that dreams do “sort of” come true. (Buzzfeed)

If looks are any indication, then Gina Gershon should nail the role of Donatella Versace. Gershon even pulled a Brando by stuffing her lower lip full of cotton. (People)


Vin Diesel doesn’t give a fuck about Batman, and neither do I. There, I said it. (Videogum)

Angelina Jolie got on a damn airplane with all six of her children and flew from Los Angeles to Australia. Just give the woman a humanitarian award for not losing her mind in the process. (Lainey Gossip)

In totally unsurprising news, Nikki Finke would really like Jay Penske to give her back her website. Did anyone ever believe that Nikki could still write for Deadline and not be her own boss? Finke simply can’t work with other people since, you know, she hates everybody. (Vulture)

katypl-1.jpgIn contrast to the try-hard variety of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” single promotion (above), I should prefer this promo artwork for Katy Perry’s Roar because it’s kind of retro-cool. Unfortunately, Katy’s music kills my ears, so I don’t have a dog in this fight. (DListed)

John Cusack’s accused stalker says the angels speak to her. Perhaps they even tell her to hold a boombox outside Cusack’s window. (TMZ)

Hollywood has decided to remake The Island of Dr. Moreau again. (Slashfilm)

Miley Cyrus called a paparazzo a “c—t” and then bragged about it on Twitter. She’s so hardcore. (Celebitchy)

Dustin reveals that Damon Lindelof was super bummed about the critical reception of the “Lost” ending. He says something about taking a sh-t on George R.R. Martin’s doorstep. Good plan. (Warming Glow)

Why do our best ideas come to us in the shower and while vacuuming and/or exercising? Science may have an explanation. (Mental Floss)

Does anyone still collect Pokemon cards? One of the rarest is going for $1000. (Kotaku)

I absolutely adore this photo of Karl Lagerfeld holding a figurine of himself holding a little Choupette. (Go Fug Yourself)

Paula Patton doesn’t seem to care about Robin Thicke’s butt-grab blonde at all. This continued coupling it truly mystifying. (Page Six)

Here’s a video of Steve Buscemi reading tweets about himself. It only works for the Buscemi factor.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Wait, wait...why is Katy Perry still a thing again?

  • John G.

    "Hollywood has decided to remake The Island of Dr. Moreau again."

    They need to cast Val Kilmer in the part Brando played in the last remake, so that his soul can leave Val Kilmer's body and go make someone else super fat.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Made my day you just did

  • Seany D

    I love the shit out of you guys and Pajiba Love, but my soul weeps every time you link to Buzzfeed.

  • bastich

    It's like my old grandpappy used to say:

    Every time you link to Buzzfeed, an angel stops twerking.

  • Michael Vick

    Quit promoting dog-fighting by using it as a metaphor.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Oh Miley, it's ok kiddo. We know how mature and sexy and outrageous you are. Golly Gee, you even have black backup dancers and make them fawn over you as you twerk. You so street, girl.

    You can stop trying now and take your nap. Bring one of your giant teddy bears with you.

  • Vin Diesel doesn't give a shit about Batman because he hasn't been cast as Batman and likely never will.

  • L.O.V.E.

    I think there is a mistake in that post. That's actually Janice from the muppets and Gershon will be playing in a live version of Muppets Go To Brazilian Backyard Plastic Surgery Center.

  • mswas

    Fer shurely

  • L.O.V.E.


  • Salieri2

    The angle of that chain makes me deeply unhappy, as does the fact that I noticed it. Either she's holding it in place with the brute force of her adductors, or it's venturing eastwards in an unpleasant fashion.

    Or did they just forget to Photoshop it back in when they were editing her thighs? Tell me that's it.

  • bastich

    I like to imagine that the chain broke during the shot, and this is the last moment before Mile E. Coyote's sexiest crash.

  • That picture of Donatella Versace looks like nothing so much as it does a still from an SNL sketch where Fred Armisen is playing her.

  • I still believe that the only plausible excuse for nouveaux Miley is that when they shaved her head they mistakenly cut too deep.

  • BendinIntheWind

    Nothing will top Maya Rudolph's portrayal of Donatella. GET OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT!

  • BigBlueKY

    I can't read that and not hear Maya's voice yodel that. Thank you.

  • DehydrationStation

    "Whose Promo Image Wins: Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry?"

    Can we at least pretend that this is a cinema-related website whose main demographic is older than an 11 year-old girl?

  • bastich

    Hey guys! I think that was a subtle dig at Jonathan Taylor Thomas!

    Get the infidel!

  • Mrs. Julien


  • Helo

    Where's the fun in that?

  • Helo

    TMNT's Donatello has more sex appeal than that stretched out flesh-colored burlap sack of ennui and colagen that bears the name Donatella Versace.

  • tatertot

    Donatella looks like Iggy Pop in a platinum wig. Although I will say that 66 year old Iggy still manages to bring the sex appeal and looks better in a dress.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Hey now, she is an unfortunate looking woman, but that is not her fault. She's playing the cards she was dealt.

  • Helo

    And doing so quite horrifically. Far be it from me to judge a person's worth based solely on their aesthetic (male or female), but plastic surgery overkill unnerves me. Not for how it looks, but because of what it says about the person. Aging gracefully, unfortunate looking or otherwise, should not be something to be ashamed of.

    Maybe I'm reading too much into it. And, sure, as the heiress of Versace, it's not at all unexpected that she places such a premium on style over substance. I still think its sad and decidedly unsexy to be so submissive to a fabricated notion of beauty.

  • BWeaves

    No she's not dealing the cards she was dealt. Google photos of Donatella before she started the plastic surgery, anorexia and coke. She was cute, or at least normal, and looked NOTHING like she looks now.

    Also, Donatella wishes she looked like Gershon. Gershon is actually making her look good.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    That was my thought as well. She's paid for the looks she's got now, there's nothing natural about her.

  • Mrs. Julien

    So she's the poster child for addiction and eating disorders.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I doubt an eating disorder would affect her lips like this.

  • BWeaves

    and plastic surgery

  • Sara_Tonin00

    That Buzzfeed list is amazing. Eclectic and heart-warming. We can call it Feels Friday.

  • Helo

    I'm not a man given to welling up over internet lists, but the last few entries had me making excuses about dust in the room.

  • titties

    did you say pop stars or porn stars

  • DataAngel

    "In A Battle Of The Pop Stars, Whose Promo Image Wins: Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry?"

    No one wins. We all lose. We. ALL. Lose.

  • Finance_Nerd

    South Park sums it up best...

    FREE YOUR MIND, the rest will follow! -- En Vogue knows what's up.

  • Chinaski

    Liberally borrowed from the old '70s Funkadelic line - "Free your mind, the ass will follow."

  • Never gonna get it, never gonna get it, NEH -ver gonna get it, never gonna get it.
    Dammit, ears were earworm free today, too.

  • melissa82

    Sorry, though I guess - It's too late to apologize, TOO LAAAAAAATE that's in my head.

  • Bananaranma

    Miley Cyrus makes me long for the subtle sensuality of Christina Aguilera in assless chaps.

  • oilybohunk7

    This earned a full cackle.

  • LawDog

    All chaps are assless. If they weren't assless they would just be pants.

  • Bananaranma

    Not gonna let verbal redundancy get in the way of a good joke.

  • Monica

    This weekend I will definitely put my PIN number in the ATM machine to get some money so I can buy some assless chaps this weekend.

  • Bananaranma

    That's the spirit...don't forget to dethaw some beef steak for an evening dinner.

  • Helo

    I'll settle for matronly Christina in assless chaps, even.

  • Mrs. Julien

    But not all chaps are pants...

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Miley Cyrus has all the sexual appeal of a potato.

  • Travis_J_Smith

    Miley was cute when she was younger... and dressed (and acted) like someone her age, or someone who respects herself. Now she looks like what would happen if you made a sequel to Encino Man called Encino Girl, and it was all about Brendan Fraser's character from the original teaching her what he learned about girls from the first movie. So, basically, it'd be like being raised by her actual father...
