Miley Cyrus Concert and 1st YouTube Video

Hi everyone! I’ve figured out more ways to keep myself busy. I really do enjoy being productive so I am always figuring out ways to fill my time. I have a full-time job and I recently took a small side job requiring writing. I’ve tasked myself with updating this blog every Tuesday and Thursday. AND NOW…I’m making YouTube videos every Sunday! Below you will see the very first video I made to kick-off my channel. If you are interested, please subscribe and stay tuned!

I decided maybe I’ll do more of the product reviews and beauty talk there so I can really focus on writing about the serious things I’ve been wanting to express here. For today I just wanted to give a quick update. It’s been a busy week already and over the weekend I went to the Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour concert at the Staples Center. I took my sister for her birthday and two long time friends joined us for the fun. Tomorrow is my sister’s 25th birthday! We’re just a year and a half apart from each other so we have always been very close and shared so much. Happy Birthday Jessica if you are seeing this!

Say what you will about Miley, I really think she has business savvy and knows what she’s doing out there. She is well aware of what her brand used to be and is successfully re-branding her self as that outrageous party-music maker. She’s doing the same thing that every other pop-teen star ever did. Britney, Christina, Madonna–they all went through the same phases of changing up their brand and doing things to shock and surprise and get people talking about them and ultimately buying their albums and concert tickets. Guess what, it worked! I am not someone who would normally purchase the latest Miley CD but because my sister really wanted to go to this show I found the album on Spotify for free, listened to it a lot and bought concert tickets. Miley you win!

Miley definitely knows how to put on a show, totally got my money’s worth. So many interesting and surprising visuals plus talented dancers. I’m fairly certain there was minimal lip synching from Miley because she was not running around the stage and twerking like crazy. She actually sat on a lot of different stage props, or walked back and forth on the stage or even just stood still. That tells me that she was not out of breath the whole time giving her room to actually do what we came to see – SINGING!

Anyway, I was absolutely entertained and I would compare the theatrics to a Vegas-style show. What’s the most memorable concert you’ve ever been to?
