Miley Cyrus’ VMA Video
This is not the article that I had planned for this morning, but after hearing so much yesterday about the VMAs on Sunday night with Miley Cyrus’ childhood destroying performance; I had to check it out for myself.
All I can say is OMGosh!! I’ve seen Miley Cyrus on TV through her childhood years. When she was Hanna Montana, all the little girls loved her and I also thought that she was a good role model for our children. She was one of the very few young female actresses that you didn’t read about with an alcohol and drug problem.
Suddenly after watching this video, my opinion has definitely changed. My daughters are now adults, but if they were children/teenagers, I would definitely NOT be allowing them to watch Miley Cyrus or purchase anything with her on it.
I really feel bad for Miley that she felt that she had to do something so outrages to change her character. If she wanted to change the way that people thought about her, she could have become a great young woman with morals. This would have allowed her to continue as a good role model. She has definitely changed the way everyone thinks about her. I don’t think it’s quite what she was looking for.
Actually it’s hard to wonder what she was expecting. You can see in the video that the crowd down by the stage is into her act, but look at the seats behind them. Most of the audience did not look entertained; maybe disgusted would be the term to describe them. I have read and seen reports that the other actors and actresses had pretty much the same reaction that I did, shock and disgust. What’s her next move? I guess we’ll all have to wait and see.
The link below from www.mashable.com will take you to her video. I you haven’t had a chance to watch it, check it out. But don’t let children watch it. There’s just no reason for it.
