"Hannah Montana" caused Body Dysmorphia for young Miley Cyrus
It really wasn't the best of both worlds. News about Miley Cyrus' battle with body dysmorphia during her 'Hannah Montana' days has really come in like a wrecking ball! It comes as a surprise to many because Hannah Montana was the persona that every little girl in the United States wanted to mimic back in the day. Hannah Montana was a disney phenomenon during the prime years of Disney Channel. Cyrus came after the days of Hilary Duff's Lizzie McGuire pop stars days. Cyrus was popular before Nickelodeon's Victorious and Disney's High School Musical. She controlled the market and with no real pop star competition in the mainstream music industry, Cyrus was able to dominate. She went on tour selling out stadiums that no entertainer had ever done before. And then it all changed. Miley Cyrus started to show signs of someone who was drastically unrecognizable to the bubble gum sparkly pop princess the country fell in love with. First, Cyrus at age 15, shocked the world when a picture of her holding only a sheet over her chest graced Vogue. Though Annie Leibovitz, world famous photographer, is known for provocative and shockingly amazing photos, people were horrified to see a tween girl being sexualized. However, the cutesy image continued to be quickly discarded after the Hannah Montana movie. We saw "Party In The USA", "The Climb", and "7 Things I Hate About You". But then she hit the ultimate turning point in her shocking song, "I Can't Be Tamed". The teenage years would surprise everyone and Cyrus showed that she wasn't kidding around. Twerking, tongue wagging, nudity, drugs, alcohol, and a short pixie haircut would be Cyrus' new image and she continues to create controversy with each passing year. However, she has never felt more like herself. That was then. She wore sparkly clothing with bedazzled jewelry. She was your typical American pop star with a platinum blonde wig and blue eyes. It was all confetti, backup dancers, and lazer lights before Cyrus even realized what was going on. "From the time I was 11, it was, 'You're a pop star! That means you have to be blonde, and you have to have long hair, and you have to put on some glittery tight thing,'" Miley told Marie Claire for their September issue,"Meanwhile, I'm this fragile little girl playing a 16-year-old in a wig and a ton of makeup. It was like Toddlers & Tiaras." Though Cyrus didn't feel comfortable with all of the changes, she remained silent. How could she complain? Her life was perfect from an outsider's view. She was getting everything she ever wanted, well, THOUGHT she wanted. But Cyrus quickly learned she wasn't being herself and that needed to change. "I was made to look like someone that I wasn't, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn't on that show, it was like, Who the f**k am I?" This is now. She's 22-years-old and just completed her sexually exhilarating Bangerz Tour in October. With major hits like "Wrecking Ball", "Adore You", and "We Can't Stop", Cyrus has been raking in the money. She's currently working on her fifth studio album that will undoubtedly hit number one on the charts as soon as it's released. Cyrus is even hosting the highly anticipated 2015 VMAs this year guaranteeing that it'll be a spectacle. But even though she is finally comfortable in her own skin and reaping success, she has never forgotten her past. "I would have anxiety attacks. I'd get hot flashes, feel like I was about to pass up or throw up. It would happen a lot before shows, and I'd have to cancel. Then the anxiety started coming from anxiety," Miley shared. "You get in this hole that seems like you're never going to be able to get out of." Cyrus also continued to note that she'd "probably never going to be the face of a traditional beauty company." Her image may be too controversial these days. "Unless they want a weed-smoking, liberal-ass freak," Miley added. "But my dream was never to sell lip gloss. My dream is to save the world."
The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.

Disney Princesses Singing In Their Native Languages
English is not the native tongue of Disney Princesses. Everyone has grown up with Disney Princesses because they are the most innocent form of childhood entertainment. With the fantastic movies comes even better songs which make them so appealing. Your infatuation with them carries on into adulthood and before you know it, you're sitting in your living room watching the movies singing along with your own children. Crazy right? Well, here's the thing, English is the default language, not the native one. All Disney Princesses have come from other countries other than Pocahontas who was a Native American in North America (present day USA). It brings up a really interesting change because when you watch the Disney movies in their native languages, it has an entirely new meaning because it's authentically and historically correct. Disney Americanizes our movies through using English and we forget that languages play a huge role in presenting emotions, interactions, conversations, and without a doubt, our singing. One of the biggest trends on the internet is hearing a Disney Princess sing her hit song with her own native finesse instead of a defaulted English one. Enjoy and really take notice on the differences in emphasis and fluidity of the lyrics. Because of changed language, the songs also have different lyrics to fit the melody which slightly alters the song even if it has a similar universal meaning. Disney is genius. What do you think?
