Quotables: Miley's Delusions Have Reached All-New Levels

10/3/2013 4:00 AM PDT, by Sarah Taylor
"I want to be hot like Britney. She was my first record. I was a lot of people's first idol. ... The way I am about Britney, that is the way that people are about me.

--Miley Cyrus in the Documentary That Just Wouldn't Die, and these days she's not just comparing herself to Michael Jackson -- she's Britney Spears, too, now. 

See, the thing is that every generation thinks they're the "next ____." But the problem with that is there really can only be one, unless something extravagant occurs, and Miley is neither that "one," nor is she extravagant. Some might argue that Madonna was the Queen of Pop, and then there was Britney Spears, who was good enough to be in Madonna's court, but too diluted to be Queen, and then Miley ... who's even further diluted -- and deluded -- than most of her pop predecessors. Miley's all right, guys, but she's no Madonna. She's not even a Britney yet.

I feel like she looks like a boy. She is to small. Brittany at least has sex appeal.

I literally just watched her documentary THAT IS NOT WHAT SHE WAS SAYING,, THEY TOOK IT OUT OF CONTEXT. She was answering a question about out growing her fans in which she responded that Her first album was a Britney Spears album and that she will always be a Brittney fans partly because of that. And her album was the first for most of her fans and she was saying that she is to them what Britney is to her. Geez.

None of this has anything to do with music, so she can call herself The Queen of Sheba for all I care. Hot, has the delusional bubble gum singer looked in the mirror, looks like a little guy with a white tongue jerking about the stage.

I believe she is talking about being someones first idol like Britney was for her-not that she is bigger than Britney. Just a bunch of people liking her, like she liked Britney.

She actually didn't say that. She said that she understands why people are obsessed with her Hannah Montana past and she respects that because she understands that she was a huge influence for her Montana fans even if she no longer wants to be affiliated with the Montana brand. She explained tthat Britney fans had her back before and after the meltdown and Montana fans will have her back post-Montana.

Of course Sarah took it out of context. She's not a journalist at all.
