Pop Shots - Show Me Some Moves
Monday, September 02, 2013

Welcome to your weekly dose of pop world musings. Covering all things pop culture, this week Pop Shots is hitting you with thoughts on everything from Miley twerking in the face of her critics, to One Direction dancing their way into theaters, to Ozzy Osbourne needing to stop, drop, and roll, and since it’s Pop Shots you know everything is seasoned with a little bit of attitude.

* Miley Cyrus spent the past week dealing with critics calling her every name in the book for her VMA performance, but the former Hannah Montana had the last laugh, as her upcoming album, Bangerz, rose to number five on iTunes’ albums chart, and it won’t even be released until October. It seems as though Miley knew what she was talking about when she sang “forget the haters, cuz somebody loves ya.”

* In more Miley news, she and Justin Bieber joined forces to record a song with Bieber cohort Lil Twist, titled “Twerk.” This is huge news to me as I thought Lil Twist was just Bieber’s imaginary black friend he blamed everything on, and not an actual person.

* One Direction filled movie theaters over the weekend with the release of their quasi-docu-flick, One Direction: This Is Us. With these types of movies becoming more prevalent, I think the timing is right to attempt to get a theatrical re-release of Cool As Ice.


* According to JC Chasez, the ‘NSYNC reunion witnessed at the VMAs was Justin Timberlake’s idea. Other things the rest of ‘NSYNC are willing to give Timberlake credit for just to get on stage with him again include their entire discography, those little pull tabs that make it easy to open packages sent in the mail, fire, and anything else they can think of.

* The New York Daily News is reporting Kanye West paid more than $2 million dollars for two armored SUVs that can withstand gunfire, bombs, land mines, and rocket-propelled grenades. In other words, we’re probably not going to get a follow up to “Through The Wire.”

* Nine Inch Nails are chronicling their new tour with a documentary series on Vevo. It will be filled with all the craziness and hijinks of a band that probably now prefers to be in bed before 11pm.

* Ozzy Osbourne nearly got to drink from the fire hose. This after the Prince of Darkness accidentally started a house fire while trying to make a bacon sandwich. Dear Food Network, I think you’ve found your replacement for Paula Deen.


* MTV supposedly celebrated the end of summer with a three day Yo! MTV Raps marathon. I say “supposedly” because they did so on a network titled MTV Jams, which, according to my cable guide, can only be accessed by going through a magic wardrobe.

* Fergie and Josh Duhamel welcomed a baby boy into the world this past Thursday. Named Axl Jack Duhamel, he will likely be tired of hearing his parents sing “Sweet Child O’ Mine” before he’s finished filling his next diaper.

* Finally, I just finished up a biography of New Kids on the Block, and a few interesting things I learned included the fact that Jennifer Lopez was one of their backup dancers for their performance at the 1991 American Music Awards, and that they released a more “street” album when they were on the downswing of their career. That rougher, tougher, NKOTB album, titled Face The Music, included the gem “Dirty Dawg,” which features all of the boys acting like they think they’re Bobby Brown, and guest verses from rap duo Nice & Smooth. You can’t un-see this, but why on earth would you want to?


And with that, my time is up for the week, but I'll be back next week with more shots on all things pop.
