MTV making Miley Cyrus documentary

MTV is turning its documentary lens on Miley Cyrus.

The network announced today they will produce a “revealing” one-hour documentary that will follow the  performer as she works on her new album and “delves deep into the transformation she has experienced over the past few years.” (Guessing they mean this heap of weird.)

The doc is set to premiere this fall.

In the past, MTV has produced documentaries on Lady Gaga, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Britney Spears.

'The Voice' finale: Bruno Mars, Florida Georgia Line, Nelly will perform -- EXCLUSIVE

Next week’s Voice finale really will have something for everyone.

'The Voice' champ Cassadee Pope: Hear her new single and learn who she's really pulling for in season 4 -- VIDEO

Cassadee Pope, the pop-rock singer who embraced her country roots to win season 3 of The Voice for Team Blake, will be returning to The Voice stage on June 4 to debut her new single, “Wasting All These Tears.” But fans will have to wait until fall for Pope’s full not-yet-titled album, which she promises will give fans the same mix of country and rock that she delivered on the show.

“[Fans] can expect a mixture. I grew up singing country music. It’s always spoken to me; it’s always felt natural,” Pope says. “Then I had a band. I did the whole rock thing as a teenager. Now I’m merging both. It’s very relevant to country music now, there’s a lot of country-rock, country-pop going on. What you saw on the show, me covering ‘Cry’ and ‘Stupid Boy,’ that stuff is very similar to my original songs, so they can expect the same kind of vibe.”

And although Pope still keeps in touch with former coach Blake Shelton, she can’t promise that you’ll hear him on her album… but she’s working on it. “I would love that,” she says. “I do have a song that I think would be great for him to sing on and hopefully that will work out. I still have to record that myself, so there’s still time. Hopefully we’ll get him in the studio and he’ll sing a verse or something like that.”

For now, Pope is preparing to open for The Band Perry and Rascal Flatts on the Live and Loud tour, starting May 30 and lasting through October. She’s also teamed up with Outnumber Hunger to help feed those in need. And when she gets a spare moment, which isn’t often, she tunes in to season 4 of The Voice, where she remains loyal to Team Blake. “I’m officially The Swon Brothers’ fan,” she says. “They blew my mind. I love them, and if they won I’d be so excited. But I gotta pull for a girl again. Gotta make it balance. It was two guys; now it’s gotta be two girls. Danielle I think has a real good chance.”

Her advice to the contestants? “Keep doing what they’re doing. Obviously, people love it. Stay true to themselves. To pull something out of a hat at this point when things are going so well and people are loving what they’re doing is just not the best move.”

Catch The Voice on NBC June 4 at 9 p.m.when Pope stops by to perform “Wasting All These Tears,” which you can check out below: READ FULL STORY

'Smash' premiere: Chicago's early peek at NBC's Broadway musical drama

NBC chose a nice but rather nondescript venue for the Chicago premiere of the show often described as the network’s best hope for ratings salvation this midseason. Last night, executive producers Neil Meron (pictured, below right) and Craig Zadan (below left) joined star Bryan d’Arcy James (below center) at Chicago’s new Showcase Icon movie theater for one of nine premieres that took place in cities across the country. Although the Chicago event was missing some of the flash and red carpet pizazz of Hollywood, it did have one thing: a dedicated theater crowd. And that’s one group expected to fall in love with Smash, a musical drama about the production of a Broadway show based the life of Marilyn Monroe. READ FULL STORY
