'Glee'? Miley Cyrus 'just can't'

Miley Cyrus was quite vocal this weekend, and not just when she was singing at the May 29 Rock in Rio music festival in Portugal.

Wearing a corset-style bodysuit that would make Lady Gaga blush, the 17-year-old introduced her song “Full Circle” at the music fest with a touching dedication.

Cyrus told the audience the song is about two people who always come back to each other, "no matter what anyone says or the bad people that try to keep you apart. It's a personal story. Surprise surprise, it’s about a Jonas brother.”

Sounds sweet, right? But Cyrus is no longer romancing Nick Jonas - she’s dating her “Last Song” co-star Liam Hemsworth. (Ouch!)

That wasn’t her only controversial comment this weekend. In an interview with June’s Billboard magazine, the “Hannah Montana” star took a shot at Fox phenomenon “Glee.”

"Honestly, musicals? I just can't,” Cyrus said, whose past disses read like a Who’s Who of Hollywood, including Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Jay-Z, Robert Pattinson, and Justin Bieber. “What if this was real life and I was just walking down the street on Rodeo Drive and all of a sudden I just burst into song about how much I love shoes?"

Somehow, we don’t think “Glee” will be doing an all-Miley episode any time soon.

    Woooooow, you people are really something. I have no interest in Miley Cyrus or television shows/ celebrities in general, but I have to say that musicals annoy the sheeeeet out of me. They're just so CORNY. My mom is big on them and I was actually in a few in high school, and I could never figure out why anybody came to see us. I literally cringe from embarrassment whenever I have to sit through one. It's just a preference. So what if she doesn't like them? Big deal. You all really ought to think before you type, you sound like a bunch of rabid weirdos. It's a television program for God's sake. Liking Glee or not liking Glee is not a matter of life and death, I promise you. While I'm venting, PLEASE learn the difference between 'your', 'you're', 'there' and 'their'. Reading some of these comments made my head want to burst out of sheer agony. /rant

      I'm definitely not jealous of her at all haha, why would I be jealous of someone who can't sing, act, and had everything given to them? No, I have to say, my life is absolutely wonderful. I don't have a billion dollars at my disposal and I'm not famous, but hey, I am still really lucky. And also, why is she allowed to judge other people, TV shows, and musicals and yet we aren't allowed to judge her comments? She isn't the superior being of the world, you know. Also please learn how to type on a computer before you post comments.

    For one who claims to be a musician, she obviously does not get understand the concept of what a musical is. Of course in real life people do not just burst out in song about shoes. Musicals are a form of artistic expression, which she obviously does not understand. Oh, well it is her loss.

    Miley, like most commenters on CNN, is not thinking clearly before she makes a comment. This should not come as a shock. I am not a fan of Glee, either, but I am pretty confident that Glee is received a whole lot better than Miley Cyrus ever will be... not to mention that Glee's talent level pretty much trumps Miley any given day of the week.

    You're a pain in the a$$ and you will end up like your father...washed up then riding your child's coattails. You have no class, no manners, and not an ounce of humility. Your star is already fading child. Get over yourself. No one cares what you have to say and please stay off my TV.

    To be quite honest, it's not even the gLeek side of me that's enraged about her comment. Musicals are a fun and enjoyable way to let out some kind of emotion: anger, agression, sadness, joyfulness...any emotion that you can think of can be found in a showtune. If you haven't already guessed, I'm a big Theatre geek as well.

    Disney is beginning to make "stars" that end up singing and dancing and never making it on their own in the Big Working World. Vanessa Hudgens is slated to play Mimi in LA's production of "Rent" after making a few albums and being in 3 musical movies. Corbin Bleu is on Broadway as I write in "In The Heights". Nearly every Disney "kid" has sung in a Disney movie, made an album or is going on tour and making money...

    I do think Miley is a little peeved about "The Climb." After all, it was her first "real" song that she sang as herself and not Hannah Montana, so she should take some pride in it. I'm not on her side, but I do defend her.

    Miley is just jealous that the charaters on Glee had ten times more talent than what she does. She clearly doesn't get the show. A musical isn't a show where people jsut randomly start singing. Glee ties in personal stories. But naturally Miley wouldn't know anything about musicals, since they involve actually music, not the cookie-cutter stuff that Miley tries to pass as real music. Hello, it's called Broadway...West End...That's where your lame TV show evolvede from!!!

    I don't know how she got to be so high-brow so early in life. I guess all that instant fame and money. I don't care if she likes Glee or not, but she's made similar comments about other PEOPLE as well as other things. She seems to think what she does in more noble than what anyone else does. She's just too young to understand that she's not all that; she could be a nobody tomorrow. The other day she said she sings pop, but doesn't listen to it; again, like it's beneath listening to it, but it's what her handlers want her to do. lH*ell. it MADE her who she is. She clarified her comment re: pop music by indicating HER pop music has more meaning that a LOT of other pop performers. She needs to get a grip on that ego. Now she seems to be trying to ditch her tween fans with her new direction in her career. If she's trying to be as popular as Britney ( which isn't happening) she needs to know that Britney had a ton of ADULT followers when her first hit single came out, and that group has grown. Miley has the tween crowd and it will be a miracle if she can bridge the gap between where she is and where she wants to be. I heard she wants to be an actress, good luck with that; again she has the tweens to thank for any success she's had at the box office. Not many singers have found lasting success as actors.

    I agree...the "Glee" episode featuring Lea slaughtering "The Climb" probably offended Miley. Guess what? Other than young girls, the public at large doesn't think she's very talented. OK voice, less than stellar wonder poor Miley is going the route so many young women go: skimpy costumes, vulture dancing (ie. pole), and amping up the "sleeze" factor.

    I actually felt glad that she's not interested in Glee because no one is interested in seeing her there anyway.

    Miley, arrogance will cause your downfall. Why not be humble and just say, "Glee is a great thing on tv now, it made kids and adults be interested in showcasing their talents, though I can't be in Glee because I prefer other music outlet, I still give my respect to those kids like me who are into music..."

    But I guess she won't say something like that because she feels like she's on top of the world when in reality she's falling down.

Great strategy though, turning down "Glee" when most of that cast could blow you out of the water.

    Miley can't SING anyhow, so they won't have any use for her on Glee except make her songs better. It's a good thing Rachel had laryngitis on "The Climb". She's a Glee hater – that's just sad, coming from an artist I expected her to actually like Glee. She also contradicts herself she did audition for and come out in high school musical at the end for like a second. As far as a Jonas Brother goes, she doesn't deserve one.
