- Zero Performance: Top 10 Youtubes, Jan 2011 – "I just watched the top ten youtubes of all time so that you wouldn't have to." What follows is basically an educated rant on why Bieber (and others) suck. Miley Cyrus – Party in the U.S.A. is a favorite: Cowboy boots, American cars, a rainbow coalition of hot girls, a reference to a Jay-Z song. Yup it’s a party in the U.S.A. This is country pop music, once-removed, under the influence of Britney and formula pop. The massive stars and stripes unfurl to remind the red state homeboys that all’s OK despite the contagions of multiracial socializing and acrobatic b-boys. Miley Ray Cyrus was born Destiny Hope Cyrus in 1992. Somehow that says a lot.
