Miley Cyrus is making X Factor bosses nervous ahead of her performance on the show tomorrow.
The "Wrecking Ball" singer has reportedly been told to tone down her act for the family-friendly show after her controversial twerking at the MTV Video Music Awards with hitmaker Robin Thicke. "Miley seems to be on a mission to be as controversial as possible so everyone's a bit nervous. She's been told to tone it down for The X Factor. That said, we're not stupid," a source said.
Although big bosses don't want the performance to result in complaints, head judge Gary thinks 20-year-old should include her controversial rump-shaking move "It's music - she's a young girl. If that's the way she wants to express herself, fair enough. It's a tricky one because I remember Madonna when she brought her Sex book out and everyone was going crazy. That seemed more shocking. But, you know, there's an off button. I always say, if you don't want to watch it, turn it off," he said earlier in the week. "These singers are young, sexy girls - of course they are going to express themselves like that. But I don't let my kids watch it. I probably wouldn't let them watch anything like that, it's too sexual for them," he added.
Sinead O'Connor holds Simon Cowell responsible for "murdering music."
The Irish singer appeared in an interview this week to address her ongoing feud with Miley Cyrus, but instead let rip at the music mogul and his flagship show The X Factor, blaming him for the death of rock 'n' roll and the exploitation of young female artists' sexuality . The war of words began earlier this week when Sinead warned Miley in an open letter about the dangers of the music industry and projecting an overly-sexual image, and the 20-year-old singer responded by lashing out on Twitter, mocking bipolar disease sufferer Sinead for her mental health issues.
Miley Cyrus was "shocked" by Two And A Half Men's Angus T. Jones' rant about the show. The 19-year-old actor - who makes $350,000 for playing Jake Harper in the sitcom - called the show "filth" and begged viewers to stop watching and guest star Miley was surprised by her on-screen love interest's comments.
"Miley was shocked just like everyone else who saw the video. But Miley doesn't judge anyone and she of course wants Angus and everyone who works on the show to be happy and continue doing the show because she's a huge fan and she likes guest appearing. She had the time of her life when she worked with Angus and she even thinks he's hot and incredibly sweet. She even had fun hanging on set and filming with Ashton [Kutcher] and Jon [Cryer]," a source said.
Miley Cyrus was "on fire" when she filmed Two and a Half Men.
The singer-and-actress recently made a cameo appearance in the sitcom and though the show's star Jon Cryer wasn't initially confident she would be a success, he was thrilled when she stepped in front of the camera and nailed her part:
"She plays a motor-mouth character, so they gave her page-long monologues. She was lovely, and we had a great time. All week, she was on book [looking at the script] which is understandable. But even when we got within two hours of the show, she was still on book. We were thinking, 'Oh no, Miley better bring it!' And then we did it in front of the audience, and Miley brought it! Miley was just on fire and fantastic."
Miley recently had her hair cut into a daring short crop and Jon thinks her new look is fantastic. "I know her haircut is very controversial, but I lay on the side of 'I love it.' I think she looks fantastic," he said.
Miley Cyrus has landed a guest role on Two and a Half Men.
The 19-year-old singer - who made her name on Disney series Hannah Montana - is set to return to acting after scoring a supporting role on the hit CBS sitcom. A source told E! News that Miley's "sexy" new character will be "rife with comedy" and will shake things up romantically on the show.
The starlet will play the new girl in town that Angus T. Jones' character, Jake Harper, falls for. Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) will also develop a "massive crush" on Miley's character later on.
Miley revealed an edgy new look yesterday when she posted pictures of her new pixie crop on twitter. "Never felt more me in my whole life. LOVE my hair, feel so happy, pretty, and free. (sic)" she exclaimed.
Miley recently got engaged to The Hunger Games heartthrob Liam Hemsworth.
Miley Cyrus is in talks to join The X Factor.
The "Climb" hitmaker has reportedly been approached by Simon Cowell's team and is said to be in negotiations to take one of the two places on the judging panel left vacant after the departure of Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul.
"There have been talks with Miley," a source told Celebuzz.
If Miley, 19, does take up the role she will join Simon, L.A. Reid and most likely Britney Spears, on the show. Simon has previously confirmed talks with Britney, saying, "I would love to have her on the show ... I think she would be a fascinating person to sit next to." One of the sticking points delaying the agreement has previously been cited as the number of series she would have to commit to. "Money is not an issue for the show. As of now, they are looking to pay her $12-15million for the first season, with a drastic price hike for a second year based on ratings performance. Simon Cowell wants at least a two-year commitment and Britney wants an out clause if she doesn't want to continue after one year of service," a source said.
As soon as SNL announced that Miley Cryus would be hosting the show, everyone knew that at least one popular skit would make an appearance: Vanessa Bayer’s The Miley Cyrus Show. And Saturday Night Live did not disappoint.
In the video above, Bayer plays Miley Cyrus, Jason Sudeikis plays dad Billy Ray, and the real Miley Cyrus plays Justin Bieber. Watch the skit!

New Saturday Night Live cast members Vanessa Bayer and Paul Brittain managed to get themselves noticed during last weekend’s broadcast.
In a skit featuring host-for-the-week Bryan Cranston, Bayer offered up “The Miley Cyrus Show,” which starred the teenager as an over-enthusiastic talk show host. While Bayer’s impersonation was a little over-the-top, the skit did give faithful viewers the chance to get a real taste of two of the show’s newest cast members.
