Writing Songs for Miley Cyrus

When Jessie’s first record deal didn’t work out, she turned to songwriting and got herself a contract with Sony ATV where she started writing hit songs for Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and Alicia Keyes. Her biggest songwriting hit was Miley Cyrus’ song Party in the USA”!

I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.
