She got what she was after, people are talking about her. The media gave here
everything she wanted and more. She knew people would flip out, that was the
Ha Ha... the conservatives are still up in arms over this? It's been three
days and it's still on the front page of Deseret News, front page of Fox
News... all this press has to have Miley laughing all the way to the bank!
Is everyone repeating her name today? Is she all over the news? Would
'wholesome' have had the same effect? It was a means to an end, and it
provided more for her than her meagre store of talent and intelligence ever
Ask Lindsay Lohan. After years of being a "girl gone wild" Lindsay is
finally recognizing all of her false fun and the devastating consequences. Poor
Billy Ray must be crying himself to sleep every night seeing his daughter self
destruct like this.
I was always told by my mother and father that, only you, are responsible for
your life. Anyone, and I mean anyone, who look to a Total stranger to be a
rolemodel for their kids should not be having kids at all. You are their role
model. They look to you for guidance and leadership. Expecting someone else to
do so is wrong. Can't raise them, don't have them.
Makes one cringe to think she was the featured performer, as Hannah Montana, a
few years ago at the Stadium of Fire. Sad how she has chosen to live her life in
Mike W., it's not just the conservatives who are "up in arms." I
think Miley Cyrus has managed to bring together people of all political
persuasions in a common cause: Make it stop. Other than Miley's mom, is
there anyone who watched that and thought, "Now that is a talented young
woman"? What bank is she laughing all the way to? There's not a lot of
money in making people nauseous.Whatever anyone thinks of Mr.
Bennett's viewpoint, you have to agree that this is a funny, well written
article. "Twerked a message to the tweens"? Yes!
There seems to be nothing more destructive to a young person than fame at an
early age. Yet, there are parents who seek that for their children. How sad!
@Hutterite - yes, and Esau's belly was filled when he sold his birthright
for a mess of pottage. That wasn't a very good trade, and neither were the
trades made by George Michaels and Julie Andrews as pointed out in the article,
or Lindsey Lohan, Amanda Bynes, and many others. Pretty weird that you think
Miley Cyrus' trade will work out better for her just because people will
talk about her for a couple of weeks. Unless she works hard to turn herself
back around, this stunt will probably be the singular iconic and shameful moment
for which she will always be remembered.
re:ParkCityAggiehit the nail on the head
Those of you that think she "is laughing all the way to the bank" are
clueless. Yes, people are talking about her and her terrible performance. But
the talk is definitely not positive, it won't last for long, and she is
definitely not going to be making any money off of it. The article gave several
examples of this not working for people in the past. And it certainly
didn't help Miley in the least. It's only creating a bigger wedge
between her and those that supported her in the past.I think people,
even though talking now, will distance themselves from her as far as they can,
and she, like the others, will lose out in the end. Most people don't want
to be associated with a person that pulls these types of stunts, unless they are
on the same low level of maturity.
At least we know who she is now...unlike a lot of creeps out there who sit on
the bench at church on Sunday and then do all sorts of unsavory things behind
closed doors--and there are a lot of those, especially in this state, where
appearance is everything.
@jp3 - and don't forget about all the creeps who make baseless accusations
against others, anonymously through message boards like this. As you say, there
seem to be a lot of them in this state.
I wouldn't assume that Cyrus damaged her popularity at all. That is the sad
Mr Plate -- I'll just add that when the name Janet Jackson comes up... got
that image? It is what everyone thinks of first and not anything else in her
career. Now the same for Miley Cyrus. Good news is that Hanna Montana was an
image built in disguise. Thank goodness for that.
