c. Miley Cyrus: 

To be honest, i dig your hustle, its just that "Bangerz" did not live up to the hype, good experimental record but not the best by far this year, When britney did it, it was for the iconic "Britney" Album, X-tina too was for the ground breaking "Stripped", Rhirhi unleashed "Good Girl Gone Bad" and "Rated R" and we got the reason for the evolution so if you wana take off your clothes, be sure to revel the deepest part of yourself (take the time and direction to make a record for the ages and not for just 2013)
