“It all started with a moment of clarity,” says Zedd, reminiscing on the moment he wrote “Clarity” (feat. Foxes), the hit song that brought him into the spotlight.

The 25-year-old DJ and producer’s mini-documentary, Moment of Clarity, gives fans a behind the scenes look at last years world tour of the same name.

In the documentary, we learn that the crew only had a grand total of 8-hours of rehearsal for the tour. If they hadn’t said anything I wouldn’t have noticed, because the edits of the tour scenes were superb.

Zedd is such a busy body that one of his band members believes there are two of him, one relaxed version of him at the piano, “and another one answering emails, because he gets stuff done!”

In one part of the video, Zedd is watching his fans on Twitter tweet about the leak of “Stay the Night,” a song he recorded with Hayley Williams. “Sh*t happens,” he said after getting off the phone with his manager.

The funniest parts of this documentary are the story of how he ended up producing three songs for Lady Gaga’s Artpop and his response to how he’s holding up on the tour.

“I bought a juicer,” he tells the journalist. The scene should have cut to a smoothie tutorial. That would have been perfect.

The documentary features appearances by Skrillex, Hayley Williams, Foxes and Matthew Koma.

Miley Cyrus Announces MTV Documentary ‘Miley: The Movement’

It doesn’t look like Miley Cyrus’ name is going to come off of our tongues any time soon.

Between her crazy music video for “We Can’t Stop,” her VMA performance, and the new “Wrecking Ball” video that people are beginning to consider a mild porno, this girl is getting the attention of literally anyone who’s got enough time on their hands to watch/listen to her insanity.

I will admit that the “Wrecking Ball” music video was a very well thought out artistic interpretation of vulnerability. The song is quite amazing itself as well.

With the release of her new album Bangerz, coming out on October 8th, I honestly cannot wait to hear the criticism.

Because, I mean, look what just two songs has gotten her…

You have to understand that since she took a break from music for a bit, she has to make a big comeback so that she’ll still appear relevant.

“Big comeback” is an understatement at this point though, Miley.

A few days before Bangerz is released, MTV will air a documentary titled “Miley: The Movement” at 10pm ET/PT.

Well, now we all know what most of us will be tuning into on the evening of Wednesday, October 2nd!

“There’s going to be a lot of ups and downs, and it’s going to be completely insane. You’ve gotta be a part of the movement with me,” Miley says in the promo for the documentary.

Maybe we’ll finally find out where all the madness that is now Miley Cyrus is coming from.

I wonder if we’ll see any of Liam in the documentary…
