The music industry has changed, but apparently people still buy albums. And Miley's "Bangerz" has officially had the year's biggest sales week for a woman.
Miley Cyrus in a thong. Ke$ha in a thong. Rihanna in a thong. Lady Gaga in a thong. Miley Cyrus in pasties. Nicki Minaj in pasties. Miley barebreasted, Rihanna topless. The young women on today's pop charts are stripping down, right before our eyes. And you know what? It's not very interesting.
We here at Jezebel are capable of a little self reflection. We know that we can be over the top with our love of Beyoncé sometimes. How could we not be when she's the greatest fucking performer to have ever opened her mouth and made noise come out of it? Look, see? We're doing it again. Like I said, it happens and we …
There are so many reasons why this video of YouTube singer Tasia Ann Thomas should be annoying — she's alone in her bedroom, singing to a webcam, wearing a cropped denim vest over another crop top and she opens with a song by fun. — and yet somehow she pulls the whole thing off and makes us like her.
Despite what you may have heard from the Circle Jerks, Rick Ross and the insistent warbling of Ke$ha, not all pop stars live by the motto "die young."

Kanye West's film, Runaway, is 35 minutes of lurid fantasy, complete with a model covered in feathers, a giant papier-maché bust of Michael Jackson, tutu-clad ballet dancers and an inter-species sex scene. What does it all mean? We have answers.
You know how Taylor Swift says that all of her songs are about her relationships? Her new song, "Dear John," seems to detail what went down between Taylor and John Mayer. And it doesn't end well.
After the VMAs, Gaga sat down with Ellen — who is vegan — and attempted to rationalize why she was wearing a hat, dress and shoes made of meat.
If you don't get a headache from the relentless staccato beat, perhaps Heidi's monotonous, thin-voiced and lifeless robo-whisper will do the trick.
