As much as I like Miley Cyrus, and as much as I appreciate what she’s trying to do in regards to being sex-positive and all, there are moments where she’ll open her mouth and entitlement will come out, and it’s hard not to roll your eyes. Anyway, she was apparently performing at Clive Davis‘ annual pre-Grammys party this past Saturday evening, when she decided to mock her audience. You know, because old people! They just don’t appreciate young people music! Fox News reports …
Cyrus opened her set with the upbeat “Get It Right,” which didn’t earn a rousing applause. She said to the crowd: “I hope y’all feel better than y’all look. Maybe this song is better for this crowd.” Then she sang Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.”
Oh gawd, really? This is performer 101 stuff. You never EVER blame the audience for not being receptive to what you’re doing. It doesn’t matter how apathetic they are, you don’t get to go on the mic and blame them for not appreciating what a special little snowflake you are. Especially when you’re performing for a room of people in the same industry as you.
