Oh Miley, what have you done?

So the world’s attention has turned to Miley Cyrus.

Miley violating a big foam hand and ‘twerking’ all up on Robyn Thicke.

Miley made her intention clear when she spoke with MTV before the show, promising a crazier stint than the Madonna/Britney kiss years ago.

And following the performance showed no regret as she boasted on twitter “My VMA performance had 306.000 tweets per minute. That’s more than the blackout or Superbowl! #fact.”

Oh Miley.

You know when people say any publicity is good publicity? They’re wrong.

Remember what happened to Brittney?

We understand the sob story. 20 year old who can’t break out of her Disney image… “this was the only way!”

I just don’t think that’s good enough anymore… Selena Gomez seems to be coping!

Selena Gomez

SO now you’re just trashy. So trashy. In such a horrible, trashy way. It was embarrassing to the music industry, and, well… the human race.

Her brand is now so far damaged, and she has limited herself so much for her future career.

She’s been in movies, she’s released songs, surely she’s got some kind of talent in there… why not take some of that energy she puts into twerking and invest it in herself so that she can be a respected artist?

Because if she continues down this path, we’re going to have a Lindsay Lohan 2.0, on our hands – another example of a young, talented star, corrupted by the misconception of originality.

  1. Okay, hey. Hi. I read your post on the LFL, and didn’t comment. But I do think, and I would like you to take this as a kindly meant comment – I’d like to open your mind to something rather than hurt your feelings – that there was a bit of a gap in the way you have talked about these two topics.

    Regardless of my thoughts on the LFL, and whether or not it is feminist (personally I think there are other issues surrounding it which mean that it can’t possibly be) I think it’s kind of problematic that you’ve said in one post that you would like to talk about something in a feminist way, especially and specifically about women having agency over their own bodies, and then publicly shaming Miley for her actions at the VMAs.

    I think if anyone needs to have their actions looked at in this situation, it is Robin Thicke. Watch that video again and take notice of the revolting man – old enough to be Miley’s father, married, with children – grinding his crotch against a young woman while singing about the ‘blurred lines’ that women not in complete control of their faculties give to a predator. Why is HIS behaviour being handwaved as ‘boys will be boys antics’ while Miley is being figuratively publicly stoned? Again, I’d like you to know this isn’t an attack on you personally, but I really think it’s something people should have a think about. Very problematic and indicative of a larger social issue, I think. Have a lovely day. 🙂

    • Hi Maja. I don’t have an issue with women using their bodies and flaunting what they’ve got etc… My problem with this Miley performance was how tacky it was! Such a immature plee for attention, she could had have still been sexy and controversial without being so cringe worthy. I think it’s an honour to be performing up there… And she just looked so silly. In terms of her professional brand she’s making for herself and her career, I don’t think it was a good move.

      Yeah the Robyn Thicke thing was a bit off… I did think he looked uncomfortable up there though… But that’s a different issue altogether.

      Thanks for your thoughts 🙂
