Silly website publishes false story about Miley Cyrus fight with Ron Jeremy – UPDATED

Wrecking Ball Parody CaptureYou may have seen a news item today claiming, “According to the club’s manager, Ron Jeremy was hosting the Derby event at the club. At some point while Jeremy was talking with some fans near the bar area, he was approached by a, according to many, highly intoxicated Miley Cyrus who, thought he should die for ripping off her video.”

 

Apparently this site is trying to be something like the Onion. I’d call this story an epic fail. There is nothing entertaining or thought provoking in this piece of garbage writing. For that reason I will not even share the name of this lame website or link to the abhorrent article. It is true Ron was appearing at a Derby Party at Trixie’s in Louisville on May 3rd but that is where the truth to this story ends.

 

The story has already been debunked as a total lie. Ron himself tweeted “FYI – NOT TRUE “. The site Global Flare has also reported the story was a “Hoax“. The truth is actually the complete opposite of what this article claims. As we reported last week, Ron recently put out an album on the label BCR which also produced an album with Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley’s dad. Ron and Billy Ray know each other and Ron told me last week that he had received word that both Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus LOVED the parody video and thought it was hysterical. I don’t know Miley Cyrus at all but from what I have seen of her, she strikes me as someone who has a decent sense of humor and the ability to laugh at herself.

 

Ron also reported that Teri Richardson, the Director of Miley’s original  Wrecking Ball video watched and enjoyed the parody. The Ron Jeremy parody of the original Wrecking Ball music video was directed by Nathan Coltrane and produced by Amber Smith who went to great lengths to copy the original shot for shot and they did an amazing job. Speaking about making the video Amber said, “Ron Jeremy was a great sport. We have a great crew of friends that pulled this off in just two days of filming. With Nathan Coltrane directing & Micheal Greenman as our DP, it went as smooth as can be. Tons of laughs on set and never a dull moment around RJ. I’m glad to hear that the argument between him and Miley Cyrus was a hoax. It was really meant to be for fun. I heard that her and her dad Billy Ray Cyrus actually liked the video. I knew she had a good sense of humor.”

 

You can see a side by side comparison of the two in this YouTube Video:

I am a big fan of intelligent satire and of course we all know Ron loves comedy but personally I find this most recent failed attempt at humor at the expense of Miley Cyrus to lack any constructive social criticism I would hope to find in a satirical piece. This fake news item is not witty, but is simply a mean spirited ploy to bring internet traffic to a website written by losers trying to capitalize on the fame of Ron Jeremy and Miley Cyrus. It’s pathetic and I would encourage all of you to ignore this story and refrain form sharing it or passing it on to others. If you are looking for something funny to brighten your day try the Onion or Funny or Die. Better yet, watch some more videos from the great people who made the Ron Jeremy Wrecking Ball Parody by visiting the SPOKENRAD channel on YouTube.

A candid Ron Jeremy talks about tragedy and the historic chain of events that lead to his new album

In 1971 Ron Jeremy Understanding and Appreciating Classical MusicDon McLean recorded the universally known song American Pie. It is a poetic telling of the tragic 1959 plane crash that took the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper (Jiles Perry Richardson, Jr.). This week while discussing the release of his new album, Understanding and Appreciating Classical Music, Ron reflected on this story and the small twist of fate that eventually led to the creation of this album.

 

According to Ron (and confirmed from other sources) Waylon Jennings had initially planned to be on that infamous and tragic flight. At the last minute Jennings offered his seat to the Big Bopper who was suffering from a cold and instead, rode the bus to the next destination. The bus arrived safely and of course, the plane never made it.

 

As you probably know Waylon Jennings went on to have a successful career as a Country Music singer/songwriter. What you may not know is that in 1979 Waylon fathered his only son, Shooter Jennings with his wife Jessi Colter. Shooter went on to become a musician playing Country and Rock Music. In 2013 Shooter Jennings formed his own record label known as BCR. Shooter, under the BCR label has produced albums with the likes of Billy Ray Cyrus, Wanda Jackson and now Ron Jeremy.

 

Last month the 14″ two sided vinyl album, Understanding and Appreciating Classical Music was released in a limited pressing of 1000 copies. On the album Ron plays classical pieces on the Piano and on the Harmonica. Not surprisingly he also cracks a few jokes along the way. The initial pressing sold out quickly nationwide. The recordings will soon be available for download and will also be coming out on CD in a few months. We will keep you posted on the availability right here on RonJeremy.com.

 

That was Ron’s story. It is a reflection on the interconnectedness of things. Some deep thoughts we are happy we were able to share with Ron’s fans and the readers of this website.
