Miley needs to grow her hair back and put on a pair of cowboy boots and leave this part of her career behind her.
Agreed. I'm not buying the dramatic singing bullshit when the video has her swinging around naked on a wrecking ball fellating a sledgehammer. Sorry, Miley, but you're all about shock these days and you're not fooling anybody by trying to sing the high drama stuff. Also, please keep your stupid tongue in your mouth. It was OK at first, but now it's just getting fucking annoying.

I guess it just goes to show that if you have a cute frontman, it doesn't really what kinda music you make - just make it infectious and plaster his goofy face everywhere and make seventy million dollars.
I think you're laying it on a bit too thick here. "One More Night" is extremely addicting (which is what pop is really all about, no?), and "Daylight" makes me want to cry like a girl every time I hear it. (OK, maybe I laid it on a little thick myself just there - quid pro quo.)

And it's a shame, because fun makes good pop songs! Just...not with Pink. She just sounds like a terrible singer that thinks she sounds like Christina Aguileria.

Pink's "True Love" is another really REALLY bad song from this year, but this one was overplayed way too much.[/center]
While neither one of the songs you mentioned was particularly strong, saying she sucks as a vocalist is taking things a bit too far. She's no Christina, but she's no Demi Lovato either. (Plus, quality of pipes notwithstanding, I'd still hit that in a heartbeat. )

True, but I thought "Firework" was great, and "Roar" isn't really too bad either.

EDIT: Also, you missed a song.
