A trio of new Black Mirror episodes dropped on Netflix today. In one of them, Miley Cyrus plays a struggling pop star who lends her voice to a robotic personal assistant, which then gets turned into an onstage hologram that sings pop versions of Nine Inch Nails songs.

Who would’ve thought that 2019 would give us a whole lot of connections between Nine Inch Nails and the Cyrus family? Because that’s happening. For the past nine weeks, the #1 single in America has been Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road,” a song built from a sample of … More »
Miley Cyrus announced her new project, She Is Coming, will be dropping on Friday, May 31. The venerated pop force has been teasing her highly-anticipated album with the release of the project’s cover, ASMR videos, and announcing her appearance on Netflix series Black Mirror, which lands June 5. The cover of the new record is a photo of Cyrus in a Sex Pistols shirt that reads “Never Mind The Bollocks,” a reference to the only studio album by the English punk rock band.
Over the weekend, Cyrus performed three new tracks at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. One song referenced Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. She also performed “We Can’t Stop” with Charli XCX. Miley’s last album was released in 2017, Younger Now, which featured her hit song “Malibu.” There’s no telling what direction Miley will take, though her recent work with Mark Ronson signals an enticing new collection is underway. She remains elusive in her artistic expression, spanning a variety of genres from country to hip-hop, so who knows where Cyrus’ creative mind will take us? All we know is She Is Coming.
Little Black Mirror is a Black Mirror spin-off debuting on YouTube’s América Latina channel in partnership with Netflix. It stars a wide array of Latinx social media stars like Lele Pons and Juanpa Zurita. A more shocking guest star, however, seems to be Swedish hitmaker Alesso. The DJ is shown in a few clips during the trilogy’s preview, which has been tempoarily taken down, alluding to him playing a lifelike role in the series per his appearances behind the decks.
The spin-off series is scored and directed by Randy Mancuso, and follows arcs inspired by the original. It’s geared toward Spanish-speaking fans, but is ultimately accessible to everyone. Episodes are set to air on May 26, June 2, and June 6; right around when the fifth season of Black Mirror debuts on Netflix.

Who are all these people? This was my first time seeing the 1975, and I was shocked at the sea of humanity in front of me, packed together closely with no easy path to the front.
