Miley Cyrus Comments on Poison Cover
Last week, we brought you news on Miley Cyrus. Not something we usually do around here, but because this particular piece of news involved Miley covering a Poison classic, we couldn’t resist.
According to a spokesperson for Cyrus, the pop sensation spent time in a Manhattan recording studio in recent weeks, putting her own spin on a song written years before she was even conceived. Not only that, but Poison frontman Bret Michaels actually assisted the entire process. He guests on Cyrus’ cover of ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn,’ which is not yet slated for release. Cyrus says the song may be released on her next album, or it may never be released at all; the spokesperson claims Cyrus’ camp is still figuring out what they want to do with the song.
Well, now Miley has come out of the woodwork to talk about her collabo with Bret, and claims “‘Every Rose’ is a classic and one of my favorites. Bret Michaels and Poison was my very first concert and introduced me to rock and roll.”
According to Cyrus, she’d recently heard the song while with a group of people, “and everyone around me starting singing along. It’s a song that everyone knows and loves. I feel like the way the music industry is today really shelters kids and they aren’t exposed to songs as honest and real as this one.”
She had a “great time” with Bret in the studio “just hanging out and making music. It was so surreal to have him sit down with his acoustic guitar and walk me through ‘Every Rose’ and then give me the opportunity to add my own flare and edge to it. Bret is so passionate about music and it shows.”
Miley’s brown-nosing didn’t end there. She feels that her cover of ‘Every Rose’ is “such a rad collaboration because it shows that two artists that seem so different on the outside can come together and organically create something that we are both proud of. I look forward to finishing the song in L.A. with Bret and John Shanks, who is producing.”
Again, Cyrus and her camp still have no official plans for the song.
