Must Read Open Letter To The Headies Awards 2013 Organizers


Dear Headies 2013 Organisers,
Let me start by saying i am not just disappointed in you but u have just proved to us that Nigeria is not getting better any time soon. you have been manipulated by a greedy and hopeless telecommunications company (mtn) because they sponsored your event and you forgot the ultimate rule that awards are meant to be impartial and should be decided by the general public especially when u told us to vote. you distributed the awards among 4 mtn ambassadors (iyanya, davido, praiz, and kcee) and just 1 glo ambassador won (waje). Is that not politics or is it coincidence? Now let us analyze.

Miley Gets Hot And Heavy In New Video - "Adore You"

Miley Cyrus: Adore You

Miley Cyrus has taken "provocative" to a whole new level in her latest nearly naked video, "Adore You." In the Rankin-directed video (Future, Sky Ferreira), Miley is seen lying in a bed wearing nude-colored underwear. She writhes around under white sheets while she films herself touching herself. She bites her arm a couple times and sucks on the sheets for a little bit, which I'm pretty sure is doing it wrong.

Later, in a shocking turn of events, Miley puts on clothes to take a bath, where she continues to rub herself. Then it starts raining, because symbolism or something. Miley Cyrus gave fans the ultimate Christmas present which is the full-length video for the Bangerz ballad "Adore You." While the clip was supposed to debut early Thursday morning (December 26), it leaked early, so while Smilers ripped open their gifts at home, they could also watch an unwrapped Miley writhing around nearly naked under the sheets in the intimate clip.
