Miley Cyrus Wants to Do More TV

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Gossip,

Miley CyrusHere’s a big surprise: teen superstar would like to spend even more time in front of the cameras. The Disney sensation was promoting her work in Bolt when she stopped to chat with E! News about her own career desires.

“I would want to do a reality show like ‘The Real World’ because I think that’s crazy,” she told reporters. “Anyone who would do that has some serious guts.” Or issues with exhibitionism.

“I just want to be in a really nice house, with cameras following me around,” she elaborated. I actually kind of thought her life was already like that - cameras and all. We’ve certainly seen enough pictures of her in somewhat private situations. “I can just sit there, eat Cheetos, read my book, hang out all day.”

So, if Cyrus was doing a reality show, we’d all get to watch her eat junk food, read and sit around. This would absolutely tank…with any other star but her. I actually believe people would watch this gladly, and I’m quite sure someone is pitching the idea to even at this moment.

Referring to her life, Cyrus said, “It’s like a free reality show, I just don’t get paid for it.” Don’t worry, fans, Cyrus actually gets paid prettily by Disney for her work. “They’re always there,” she complained of the paparazzi.

Sure, I get it. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable to have the photogs taking shots. Why not just install cameras and sound equipment in one’s home instead?

Can Disney Rock the Ratings Again?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Kids, Music, Prime Time, Cable, Gossip,

Camp Rock

Lightning doesn’t strike twice…unless you build the right kind of rod. No one anticipated the runaway success of Disney’s High School Musical, and now the powers-that-be are determined not to be caught unawares a second time. Fanfare and fan participation became the bookends of the High School Musical 2 marketing campaign…and even this pales in comparison to the star treatment the network is giving the soon-to-be-released .

The promos have been going strong for weeks, the Web site is filled with glitter and pizazz, and the debut is scheduled for June 20. Are you itching to set your DVR?

With the co-starring and a crop of fresh-faced youngsters, Disney is treating Rock like it’s the heir apparent to the Musical throne (the stars of which are moving quickly past the high school stage of their lives). But…is it?

More Bad Press for Miley Cyrus

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Cable, Gossip,

Miley CyrusIt’s a long way down from the top of the pedestal, and young tween idol is finding out just how tough that topple can be.

Rock ‘n roll group Lustra has fingered Cyrus for borrowing a little too heftily from their song “Scotty Doesn’t Know” (from the Eurotrip soundtrack) for her tune “Rockstar.”

“Although we are very flattered that Ms. Cyrus took this route, we would have preferred some credit,” guitarist Nick Cloutman told the press. The band, according to Cloutman, is “considering various options to rectify this situation.” As far as I can see, all those options will probably melt down into just one: a very quiet and tidy little settlement - anything to stop the bad reports in the media.

“She doesn’t write the songs - she sings them. We have referred this to ,” one of Miley’s reps responded to the news. And Disney, make no mistake, has the best lawyers money can buy.

High School Musical 4 Already Being Planned

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Kids, Music, Cable, Gossip, News,

High School Musical, Zac Efron, Vanessa HudgensPlease don’t confuse this post with something we wrote earlier this month.  With production on High School Musical 3 just about underway, Disney has already moved on to its next project:  High School Musical 4.

The cable channel confirmed that they are already in scriptwriting mode for the franchise’s third sequel.  Although the current installment will be heading directly to the big screen, HSM4 will be another made-for-TV movie.  At least that’s what they’re saying now.

At this point, no cast has been announced for the latest venture.  (Most of the original actors have claimed they were done after three.)  But who knows - if Tori Spelling is willing to come back to the 90210 spinoff, anything can happen.

My theory? This is all connected to the summer reality series based on the musical.  At this point, no one seems to know what the ‘winners’ will be getting.  I’m guessing it’s their opportunity to be the latest Disney stars.

Disney to Get Serious Musical Competition: How Spectacular

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Kids, Music, Cable, Gossip,

Tammin Sursok can’t control the market on teen/tween musical movies for much longer, not if kids-based Nickelodeon has anything to say about it.

Spectacular, a new musical comedy set in high school, will begin shooting on April 21 - move over, . Newcomers Tammin Sursok, Nolan Funk, and Simon Curtis will star in the film, along with Zoey 101’s Victoria Justice. The film will focus on the school choir and one preppy, pretty female student in particular. A new rock-n-roller joins the group, however unwittingly, and soon enough musical romance is borne between them. Sounds a little familiar…but I can’t quite recall which musical movie plot this might be similar to. Hmmm.

Nick’s high school musical movie is not the classic, cookie-cutter musical film. The numbers in this flick are performance-based rather than random singing insertions. Think more Dreamgirls and less My Fair Lady. Right now, the Viacom-owned network isn’t planning on any sequels - though there are contractual options open for just such an occurrence.
