Miley Cyrus wants to be edgy, redoing ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn’


Miley Cyrus might be the devil. She’s making me defend Bret Michaels! Of course, I don’t really hate Bret. I think he’s rather skanky, but I think he seems like a nice guy to hang with, if you just want to chill and not have sex. Because if you want to have sex with Bret, that’s a whole different story. But, I digress. People Magazine is reporting that Miley is going to cover Poison’s immortal ballad “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”. Hey, Miley, try not to pole dance for this one.

Taking a page from a hair band classic, Miley Cyrus is remaking Poison frontman Bret Michaels’s ’80s rock ballad: “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”

“‘Every Rose’ is one of her all-time favorite songs and she is really excited about cutting it,” Miley’s mom Tish Cyrus says.

Miley, 17, might be young but her love for Poison runs deep. Her first concert experience – other than seeing dad Billy Ray Cyrus onstage – was watching the band perform in Nashville. And now she’s been in the studio with Michaels – along with other producers – putting her own spin on the ’80s ballad. She recorded the song in New York, her rep confirms.

And rumor is that Michaels might even dust off his blue rose guitar to play on the track.

I checked with Bret’s Twitter, and he did acknowledge the demon child, tweeting “Miley Cyrus to remake ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn’” and posting the above photo. I weep. I love that song.

In other Miley news, she was interviewed on Britain’s GMTV after she met Queen Elizabeth, which she did not address. But she did say that she wants her music to be “edgier” and that her current record is her “last pop record”. But I thought she didn’t listen to pop music like Jay-Z?!?

Is the world ready for an “edgier” Miley Cyrus?

The 17 year-old singer and Hannah Montana star told British morning show GMTV that she is presently at work on “my last pop record.” After that, she says, “I kinda want this to be my last record for a little while and … take a break.”

During that breather, she says she wants to explore other musical styles and create “something edgier.” Perhaps the singer will catch up on hip-hop: she recently admitted that she’s “never heard a Jay-Z song” despite name-checking him in her hit single “Party in the USA.”

“In a few years, as I grow up, so will my fans,” Cyrus reasons. “I’ll be able to have more of the sound of music that I’m into.”

The star has already grown up in front of the world: when she met Queen Elizabeth on Monday, she turned heads with a low-cut, cleavage-bearing dress; last Thursday, shots of her at a hotel pool in Florida revealed a new tattoo with the message “Just Breathe.”

I get tired of picking on Miley, but she’s such an easy target. She’s just so… what is the word for it? Is there a word that encompasses “spoiled entitled ignorant brat”? But she’s not the devil. She’s just a girl with hot pants and a dream, y’all. And that dream is to pole dance to “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”. Rest in peace, Glam Rock Classic:

    I hated the song the first time around, add Miley to the mix and GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bret M looks more freaky with each passing day!

  2. Schnauzers!!!! says:

    Ok. Why does she look like a “Rock Of Love” um…girl in that photo? I swear her mom and dad need more than a few hard kicks in the rear end.

  3. Schnauzers!!!! says:

    Oh and it makes me sad that she’s going to ruin that song.

  4. lilred says:

    Sweet Jesus , will it never end?

  5. JaNa'e says:

    yet another lindsay lohan. she’ll be old before her time and dried up within the next 5 years.

  6. snowball says:

    Wasn’t that song inspired by someone close to Bret dying?

    Hey Beaverteefs, give Ashlee Simpson a call. She’ll tell you all about being edgy. You’ve already got the spastic dancing down pat.

    From your lips to the music god’s ears, JaNa’e.

  7. BLA says:

    And she’s making duck lips. Or does she just have so many injections that she can’t help it?

  8. Lway says:

    @ bla – she’s trying to pout – apparently it makes girls look sexy – it’s not working for her though,

    I cannot stand this skanky-pants-Miley
    She’s overrated.

  9. Feebee says:


    No really Miley STOP!

  10. crash2GO2 says:

    I LOVE THAT SONG. I may be dating myself, but I don’t care.

    My daughter is 5 and likes Hannah Montana *stuff* because her friends do, and it’s all I can do to corral my disdain every time the name comes up. Miley makes me want to hate her. I know she is only 17, but every time I read something she says…. or see a picture of her…..AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Icecat says:

    @Snowball – I believe that song was written about a stripper that Bret was completely in love with, and she left him….

    This just seems so fitting considering Miley dresses and acts like the trash from “Rock of Love”.
    I guess she only has a year to go, and then maybe she can get a chance to be Bret’s ROCK OF LOVE. I mean half the girls on that show are barely 18…

    I love that song (I’m actually a closeted Butt Rocker, oh the 80’s) and she is going to RUIN it…although what do I care I will never hear it. I couldn’t tell you one song Miley sings…and I’m pretty proud of that 🙂

  12. SolitaryAngel says:

    Kaiser, you were right the FIRST time…this skanklet IS the devil. Now she’s gonna ruin one of the all-time big-hair-band ballads? GAH!!!

    **bangs head on keyboard repeatedly**
    Edit: The song was written for Brett’s best friend and comedian, Sam Kinnison, who killed himself in a hotel room on Christmas of that year. I was upset because I really liked his crazy humor…RIP man. 🙁

  13. lucy2 says:

    She’s definitely choosing her path, isn’t she? And it’s not the good one.

  14. Cat says:

    Lol if I was Miley I wouldn’t listen to me either!

  15. Annicka says:

    Shouldn’t it be legal to kill someone if they manage to collectively annoy every single (sane) adult in America?

  16. wow says:

    WTH? :-O She better not touch that song with her wretched 58 year old sounding smoker’s voice. How could Brett let this happen?

    Miley needs to stick with Party in the USA type tunes (which I like actually) and call it a day.

  17. GatsbyGal says:

    Oh my god, if Bret Michaels hook up with Miley Cyrus I will squeal. How perfect and disgusting would that be?

  18. Icecat says:

    @Solitary Angel – “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” was written about his stripper girlfriend that cheated on him. He was apparently in love with her.

    “Something To Believe In” is probably the song you’re thinking of about his best friend dying on Christmas Eve. It was not however, Sam Kinison. Sam Kinison died in a car accident in 1992.

    And, there you have it!

  19. journey says:

    i’m all for musicians stretching their wings and exploring different music genres, but if today it’s Poison, what’ll she cover tomorrow? AC/DC? Bob Marley? Twisted Sister? Tina Turner? What music is safe in the world if little chipmunk cheeks takes a fancy to a song and no one tells her to “just back away from the song, miley!”? Grow up and do your own music chica.

  20. Alarmjaguar says:

    I’m sorry, but that song isn’t edgy…takes me back to high school, but it isn’t edgy. Keep trying Miley.

  21. Goddess711 says:

    Who wants to sing what?

    Thanks for clearing the Sam Kinnison thing up, I couldn’t remember how he died but I knew it wasn’t a suicide or OD.

  22. aury says:

    damned shame… another classic, NEUTERED. 🙁

  23. ViktoryGin says:

    So done with these insipid twats trying to be “edgy”. Accept that you’re just not interesting.

  24. DrM says:

    Oh MY GOD! She is NOT allowed to wreck that song! I so LOVED the 80’s…had some pretty wild times…am going to go out and buy me some hair band music tonight and listen to it.

  25. Risa says:

    My mother would have slapped me silly if I acted/looked like this spoiled child!
