Ever since Miley Cyrus performed her pole dancing act atop an ice cream cart at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards, a distinct change has been noticed in her audience demographics. While the Hannah Montana star has been a big hit with the tween set, sources say more adult men are showing up at her appearances, and have even been observed pushing youngsters out of the way in order to get a coveted spot up front. Madison, age 11, complained, "These weird men were standing all around and as soon as Miley came out on stage, they started hyperventilating and drooling." Brittany, age 12, added, "Me and my friend Kylie could hardly see the stage because of all the yucky men up front. Ewwww! Some of them were giving her money and one like really old gross guy totally pinched my butt, I nearly barfed!" When asked how he felt about Miley's expanding appeal, father Billy Ray Cyrus replied, "Money, the kid brings in the money and we're already preparing Miley's younger sister Noah for the spotlight. Miley's been a sex symbol since she was very young. She's an old pro and I'm proud of her." Medium: graphite on paper, digital color.
A reader sent me THIS photo of Paris Hilton tongue kissing yet another unfortunate victim caught in her talons under the darkness of night. Upon first glance, it wasn't Paris Hilton I saw, it was the horse figure straight out of Picasso's Guernica. Her exaggerated outstretched tongue and the way her hands hold the man in some sort of death grip seemed so calculated. She knew the paparazzi was snapping away at her and she knew the photo would make the rounds on the internet and that people would react to it. So yeah, I reacted to it. Medium: ink on paper, much thanks to Urban Rabbit and Krista. My sincere apologies to Picasso.
