The sold-out, four-act concert headlined by Luke Bryan on Friday at Lincoln Financial Field was likely the most definitive showcase of "Bro Country" that the City of Brotherly Love has yet seen. It was even more representative of the subgenre than the "Bro-C" fest powered by major stars Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line over at neighboring Citizens Bank Park two weeks prior.

After the genuine smoke and (mostly) simulated fire had abated at Citizens Bank Park on Friday night to signal the end of country-pop megastar Jason Aldean's show, a key metric for rating the concert was evident. Satisfied fans exited the ballpark, some in cowboy hats, some in ball caps, many in pointy-toed boots (especially women, a good number clad in high-thigh-baring "Daisy Dukes" cutoff denim shorts). Most everyone sported contented looks on their faces. Leave the qualitative and quantifiable assessments to critics and other bean counters - these folks were happy.

Sex, love, art, subatomic particles (well, not so much them) - Miley Cyrus talks about it to Elle UK. She has strong feelings about nudity. "A star is someone who doesn't have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power," Miley, 20, says. "I don't want to be a glorified model. They just talk on stage and it's all about their clothes - or lack of clothes. " Ouch! Miley dismisses reports that her four-year romance (she was, like, 16 when it began)
