Miley Cyrus Declares Herself ‘Naughty By Nature’ In Mike Will’s ‘23’ Teaser

Mike WiLL Made It – 23(Snippet) – feat. Wiz Khalifa, Miley Cyrus & Juicy J. from Mike WiLL Made It on Vimeo.

By Jocelyn Vena

What happens when Miley Cyrus gets recruited to sing the hook on Mike Will Made It’s new single “23”? Well, fans will have to wait a few more weeks to hear the whole song, but the producer did drop a short, but sweet teaser for the track, which also features Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa, late Tuesday night.

The 27-second clip proves that this team is out to party. With its club-ready beat Wiz spits “I’m not no wannabe/ Waitress asks how many bottles/ I say 23.” Then Miley comes in with her verse.

In her signature raspy tone, she sings, “I’m naughty by nature.” (Oh, we see what you did there.) Then she adds, “My hands in the sky/ I wave ‘em from side to side/ my feet on the floor/ I’m about to turn up now.”

The full version of “23” will make its debut on August 26; one day after the VMA-nominated Miley is set to appear at the VMAs on August 25, live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.  The track doesn’t mark the first collaboration for Miley and Mike Will. He also produced the singer’s lead Bangerz track, “We Can’t Stop.”

At the VMAs she’s up for three Moonmen for “We Can’t Stop.” Mike Will makes a cameo in the Diane Martel-directed clip.

Lady Gaga Practices the Abramovic Method Completely Nude

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is taking it all off for the sake of art. A nude Gaga promotes the Abramovic Method in a revealing video posted online. She strips down and chants while walking blindfolded through a field and curls up on a crystal rock in the performance arts piece.

According to the MAI website, the method “helps participants to develop skills for observing long durational performances through a series of exercises and environments designed to increase awareness of their physical and mental experience in the moment.”

The Abramovic Method was started by the “grandmother of performance art” Marina Abramovic, who most recently appeared in Jay Z’s “Picasso Baby” video.

FRESH FACE WE LOVE: Condola Rashad Promotes New Starring Role In “Romeo & Juliet” On Broadway

 photo romeoj2_zps2e227952.jpg

She’s a YBF chick we’ve had our eye on for a while.  And now she’s getting her due as she’s become one of the most sought after stars on Broadway.  Meet Phylicia & Ahmad Rashad‘s real life daughter, Condola, inside….

She uber talented, bright eyed & bushy tailed, a hustler, and freakin’ gorge.  All the qualities of a true YBF chick.  Condola Phylea Rashad has made her own name for herself starring in acclaimed Broadway productions where she showcases her sharp acting chops (her mom is THE tv mom of all tv moms so we’re not surprised).  And the Tony nominee can belt out a tune or two as well.

The fab chick is already on her way to becoming a solid tv star after playing the starring role of "Shelby" in Lifetime’s Emmy nominated Steel Magnolias, and she also had a role in NBC’s shortlived "Smash".

After stealing the show in Broadway productions like Alicia Keys’ Stick Fly and the currently running Trip To Bountiful, 26-year-old Condola is set to star in the upcoming Broadway production of Romeo & Juliet.

And for our fellow hopeless romantics who are already drooling at the thought of this Shakespeare classic mozying back to Broadway for the first time in 36 years, we’ve got the co-stars’ first press event pics.

Actor Orlando Bloom has been tapped to play Romeo to Condola’s Juliet.  And the two posed it up on a motorcycle in New York City today.  We’re loving this already.

Romeo & Juliet previews at the Richard Rogers Theater on August 24th, and officially opens on Broadway September 19th.  We’re so there. 

Congrats Condola!
