Expanding My Musical Horizons

I've never really listened to Radiohead.  I've heard some snippets that make me think they are pretty typical modern alt rockers.

Well, I'm going to give them a serious listen now.

Miley Cyrus, a.k.a. Hannah Montana, is spitting bricks.  Last month at the Grammy awards, Radiohead was there to play a set.  Cyrus was on the Johnjay and Rich radio show, and in an estimated six minute spiel, this was somewhere in there:

"I'm like, these are the people I really want to meet," she said. "I'd freak out. They're my rock gods. These are the only people that I would cry over…My manager asked and said, 'Miley's really obsessed. And they were like, 'We don't really do that.' "

Apparently, Cyrus isn't used to people not caring to meet a Disney Channel star.  Thank God she doesn't live in my neighborhood.  A band not wanting to meet her crushed her spirit so badly that she left the Grammies early.  Fish around in that ocean of a broadcast rant, and you'll pull this up on the line:

"I left 'cause I was so upset.  I wasn't going to watch. Stinkin' Radiohead! I'm gonna ruin them, I'm going to tell everyone."

The fact that they didn't want to jaw with her only makes me respect them more.  Backfire!  Poor baby can't meet her favorite band.  I have no chance of meeting Kylie Minogue, and you don't see me taking a ride in the WAAAAAAAMBULANCE, do you?

Radiohead's response, courtesy of Thom Yorke:  "When Miley grows up, she'll learn not to have such a sense of entitlement."

Apparently, they didn't want to see Kayne West, who acts like he has an ego the size of a third world country, was also snubbed at the Grammies.  When Radiohead played their set, he sat down instead of standing with the rest of the audience.

Yorke's response on his group's blog site?  "Wish us all a safe journey if you still like us and you're not one of those people I have managed to offend by doing nothing."

Like I said, I might take my OK GO CD out of my player and put In Rainbows in there instead for a while.
