Morrissey has some less than pleasant news this holiday season. The British singer-songwriter claims that Miley Cyrus wanted her name from a song she recorded for her album. She also revealed that she has parted ways with her management and label.
Last weekend, the former Smiths frontman and songwriter took to his website and shared two posts. In the first titled ‘Roll On 2023’, he shared that he parted ways with Maverick/Quest management. Furthermore, he revealed that he voluntarily parted ways with Capitol Records (Los Angeles), with which he has yet to release an album. The next day, in another post titled ‘Miley Is A Punk Rocker,’ she wrote: “Miley Cyrus now wants to drop the song I’m Veronica, which she volunteered as a backing vocalist for almost two years ago.
In November of this year, Morrissey shared that his Bonfire of Teenagers album, which was supposed to be released in February 2023, was not on schedule and that its fate was “solely” in the hands of Capitol Records. Nothing has been said yet about the release of the album. That same month, Morrissey was in the news because he upset his fans after leaving the stage just 30 minutes after his performance at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. His statements on race and immigration have also been criticized in the past.
Well, Miley and Morrissey’s feud isn’t the first to make headlines and it certainly won’t be the last. Scandals in the music industry are nothing new. Many big names often find themselves caught in the middle of controversy. Speaking of which, let’s review some of the ones that caught everyone’s attention, shall we?
The 5 biggest music scandals of all time:
taylor swift and kanye west
If you’re a fan of Swift’s or West’s music, you’ve definitely heard about their infamously ill-fated conversation at the 2009 MTV VMAs, albeit in passing. So this is what happened. When Taylor, 19, accepted her award for Best Female Video, Kanye came up on stage, grabbed the microphone from her, and announced that Beyoncé had the best video of her, leaving Taylor visibly stunned. This led to an on-off feud between the two artists. The following year, Taylor performed Innocent at the VMAs, a song said to be about West. In 2016, the rapper mocked Taylor in his song “Badnam,” Famous.
2. Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun
Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun’s feud is one big mess. But it’s mainly focused on one thing, and that’s the first six studio albums from Te Te, owned by her former label Big Machine Records. In 2019, it so happened that the then-new label owner, Scooter Braun, sold Taylor’s first six albums and music catalog for $300 million. Taylor subsequently called the label’s CEO, Scott Borchetta, and Braun, claiming that she had been prohibited from performing her old songs at the AMAs and also from using footage of her old songs in her Miss Americana documentary. Big Machine Records denied these claims and accused Swift of misrepresenting the facts. After fans defended Taylor and celebrities took sides with her, Big Machine Records finally allowed Taylor to perform her songs at the AMAs. Taylor then re-recorded her albums and previous songs by her with ‘Taylor’s version’ written in parentheses.
3. Britney Spears, her public breakup and guardianship
In the early 2000s, Britney Spears performed Oops! … I Did It Again and Toxic before her life became an ugly public spectacle. After divorcing Kevin Federline and losing custody of her two children in 2007, Britney became publicly depressed, raising concerns about her mental health. In 2008, she was hospitalized twice under a temporary psychiatric evaluation regimen. The court established a temporary conservatorship that allowed her father, Jamie Spears, to be in charge of her assets and financial affairs of hers and hers as her person. Later that year, the guardianship was made permanent. In 2019, Jamie stepped down as her personal mentor for health reasons. In 2021, he was suspended as her financial custodian. Brittany and her lawyer choose an accountant to replace her father.
4. Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction
The 2004 Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show controversy involving Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake is another scandal that will go down in history. Jackson was performing a medley of her Super Bowl hits. Timberlake later joined her and they performed a duet on her song Rock Your Body. It was then that Timberlake ripped off a portion of Janet’s dress, briefly exposing her breasts. The incident gave rise to the phrase ‘wardrobe malfunction,’ as Jackson’s spokesman Stephen Heuwen later clarified: “Wardrobe malfunction; It wasn’t intentional…she had to drop her bodice and leave the red lace bra on.”
5. Chris Brown attacks Rihanna
Rihanna and Chris Brown were at the top of their careers and very much in love. And then, in 2009, the night before the Grammys, Brown attacked Rihanna in a Lamborghini, causing multiple injuries to her face—a broken lip, a black eye, and bruises—for which she was hospitalized. In his documentary, the rapper recalled that fateful night and revealed that Rihanna found out that he had been unfaithful and began to “beat” him. He said: “As I remember her, she tried to kick me, like she was being hit, but then I hit her. With a clenched fist, like I punched her, and her lip split, and I was shocked when I saw it, I was like ‘fuck’, why did I hit him like that? So from there she’s… spitting blood in my face, she turned me on even more. It’s a real fight in the car, and we’re driving on the highway.
