CommentBuzz: The Week’s Best Reader Comments About (Mostly) Miley Cyrus and Some Other Things

On Fridays, we wear pink look back on the week that was and, in most cases, thank the Good Lord that we can finally look toward a new, more hopeful day. This Friday is especially hopeful as it seems Miley Cyrus Mania is beginning to die down a little (I do mean a little), and this week’s CommentBuzz, which features your comments on a variety of topics, is small but important proof of this truth.

All that said, the hottest topic of the week was still, of course, was Miley Cyrus, whose Rolling Stone cover and interview caused a tsunami of dramatic internet reactions:

Come on I love your body but please stop wearing such ugly outfits! U can rock anything dosent mean u should wear the trashiest thing u can find or have made” – Marie

“I will say that I am enjoying This Miley better haha I just didn’t like the pasty outfit other than that do your thing” – Marie

“You need help Miley. u need too go too rehab and get off drugs.” – loveiansomerhalder

And her new music video with Mike WiLL Made-It provoked some (surprisingly positive) reactions:

“I just saw the video on Vevo, and I absolutely LOVE it! Miley is so beautiful!!!” – Demi

“Honestly get a grip n leave the girl alone. Why do people feel the need to put others down. She hasn’t done anything to harm anyone n it seems she knows exactly what she is doin otherwise she wouldn’t be a multi millionaire…..miley is laughing all the way to the bank” – nessa21

And we move on from Miley to the Lamar Odom, whose personal drama is still making headlines. Our readers offer their support:

“Sadly his dad just likes the little cash and attention he gets from all this. Not nice” – justyfly

I’m rooting for Khloe and Lamar. No matter how much reality tv BS surrounds them, that relationship and his attachment to Khloe’s family is the real deal. I love how Khloe loves him. I really hope they make it. He belongs with that crazy ass family for better or worse. Screw his “dad”. The fame-seeking Kardashians, despite their flaws, love each other and that include Lamar. Awesome for Lamar for recognizing that. Love to them!!!!!!” – rosannadanna

Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough are dating, and some of us do not approve:

“Boo!!!!!! she broke up with Ian for him?!?!?!?!?!?!? bad choice. Derek is cute but Ian is HOT!” – Amber

One reader reminded us of a dark, forgotten moment in Madonna and Sean Penn’s relationship:

“Ew, he tied her up and beat her when they were dating, why would you want them to get back together?” - Jamie

Unfortunately, Kelly Clarkson lost the battle to keep a ring once owned by Jane Austen:

“Kind of ironic in that throughout much of England’s history they spent a lot of time and effort stealing priceless artifacts from other countries.” – javadude54

“If the museum wanted the ring so bad then why did they auction it off the first place, I’ve gone to auctions where they sold Revolutionary Items and the previous owners did not ask for them back. I understand the value of Jane but if you give auction something off you shouldn’t return it. But Clarkson has a good sense of style I’m sure she’s going to find something better in her antique findings!” - Shannon

In conclusion, reader Cory J. Lack gave some serious thoughts to Sunday’s Emmys:

“This article makes a good point, and I definitely found the Kevin Spacey thing to be the only redeeming aspect of the bit, but at the same time I think “it was supposed to be bad!” doesn’t excise the fact that something is, well, bad. I watched an episode of Doctor Who once with a friend and I asked her why everything was so incompetent. She instantly knew what I meant, funnily enough, because she responded with “it’s supposed to be like that!” I don’t like this idea that making something bad intentionally makes it good. Beaning seven batters in a row doesn’t make me a good pitcher, regardless of whether or not that’s the plan or not. I bring this up because I have the sneaking suspicion that the House of Cards gag was an incidental inclusion rather than the entire point of the sketch. It would have you believe that it was supposed to be a trainwreck from the get-go; something so bad it HAD to be planned… but I never got that impression. I felt as though it was exactly as bad as I’d expect the Emmys to be: a perfect mix of self-deprecation combined with an ironic sense of self-importance. This whole thing about the “Golden Age of TV” has given these people more reason than ever to be full of themselves. And as such, when Conan O’Brien showed up talking about 900 billion people watching porn, my thought wasn’t “where are they going with this” but rather “yeah, this is par for the course.” The Kevin Spacey gag still worked, but it would be a lot more effective if the gag was more overtly awful; and yet, I’m not sure that’s possible, because what was apparently -supposed- to be exaggerated awfulness was exactly what I was expecting from the Emmys. Also, some input about this site itself: If you’re going to make me split anything remotely of substance into four separate comments, don’t set the videos on the page to autoplay. Thanks.”
