You know what makes a Friday morning pleasurable — besides thinking about the simple truth that in eight hours I’ll be enjoying a cocktail on a street-side table somewhere in NYC? The combination of Miley Cyrus and Bret Michaels! Singing his hit “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”!
Yeah that’s right, the teen queen showed up with the so-having-a-moment Michaels on Good Morning America to sing the song together. Cyrus, of course, has included a studio version of “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” on her upcoming album, Can’t Be Tamed, which goes on sale this coming Tuesday. We’ve already been treated to gems like the title track “Can’t Be Tamed” and “Liberty Walk.” Michaels’ has got a new album, Custom Built, coming out on July 6, and the single he recorded with Cyrus, “Nothing to Lose,” has already been causing quite the stir.

I should have begun with the disclaimer that I’m an unabashed fan of Miley Cyrus if that wasn’t already clear — “Party in the U.S.A.” (which Cyrus also performed on GMA) is still in full rotation on my iPod and summer jam list. And I have no ill will against Bret. So I will go out and say: I immensely enjoyed this performance between the two of them. First, “Thorn” is just a great song. Second, they were both truly singing, as you could tell from the little imperfections here and there. And third, they have the same hair basically! So overall, good stuff this morning on GMA.
