This week in Pop Music: Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Robin Thicke's 'Paula,' Paris Hilton

By Aubrie Reichardt,

This week in Pop Music: Miley Cyrus receives bad ratings for her concert special, Britney Spears’ new single “Alien” is leaked without autotune, Robin Thicke’s new album is officially a flop, and Paris Hilton teases fans with a clip from her new music for “Come Alive.”

Miley Cyrus isn’t that hot pop star she used to be and her new special that premiered on NBC proved it. Only 2 million viewers tuned into Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour which received a .7 rating among adults that are 18-49 according to EW. The Simpsons, Family Guy, and some reality television shows pushed Cyrus’s special to the bottom of the charts, as we previously reported. Cyrus may not be the role model she believes she is and should take her low ratings seriously.

On July 2, a version of Britney Spears’ new single, “Alien,” from Britney Jean, was leaked on the internet and featured no auto-tune on Spears’ vocals. was claimed to be a warm-up track by the producer, Producer William Orbit said it was a warm-up version, according to The Huffington Post Orbit released a statement about the warm-track on July 7. The leaked version of “Alien” has been removed from YouTube, as we previously reported.

Robin Thicke must have been so focused on trying to win his wife Paula Patton back with his latest album that he forget what albums are really for: making money. To do that, however, albums would need to be sold and Thicke’s are not selling. Only sold 530 copies of Thicke’s album Paula were sold in the U.K. during its first week. Even worse, Thicke only sold 54 albums in Australia. It would be better for Thicke’s career if the pop star can move on from Paula.

Paris Hilton is coming back to music with her new single “Come Alive.” The teaser for the music video is filled with flowers and rhinestones giving Hilton a Barbie doll look, as we previously reported. While Hilton’s first album was more pop, her second one will be more on the dance side. The album doesn’t have a title yet, but is set to come out later this year.
