First Media Moment: Miley Cyrus brings a twerking little person onstage in Las Vegas while performing 'Wrecking Ball,' slaps her behind

HEY classmates and fellow bloggers,

I saw this picture in one of those free newspapers you get at subway stations and wasn't even surprised. about this after Miley's VMA performance I think her standards of what is appropriate to do at concerts and on TV have fallen drastically. The thing is, that Miley's new single "Wrecking Ball", has an interesting and relate able topic. She sings of being in a destructive relationship which, I feel like, most of us have experienced. A relationship in which one puts in all the effort and emotions and is left standing alone. I like that message. But then her video is so incredibly unnecessarily sexual that I can't take her or her message seriously. This performance once again proves my point.
Do you guys think that in order for former Disney stars to break out of their "innocent" child they need to go to this extent? Is that really necessary? Is this what people want to see?

I hope not..

  1. Hey Isabel,
    I posted about Miley also but in a different light. However I think that you have a point. Though it may seem like all Disney stars take a turn for the worse, this is actually not true. Look at Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. Both around Miley's age, moving up in the world without twerking.

  2. This reminds me of her video where she was surrounded by black women twerking. Now she's surrounded by little people twerking? I don't know what to say about that. It's definitely not necessary to go to this extent to break away but I don't think this is her intention. She thinks the "hype" is great, she's doing this for publicity. I don't think people want to see this but it seems to make people feel better about themselves and I think people enjoy having something to talk about.

  3. I think it's become a trend for young stars to suddenly readjust their image unbeknownst to the public. Shock value is probably well intended. I can only imagine that this has become an advised and practiced approach in Hollywood. After all, how many celebrities even use their real names anymore?
