i’m not a miley cyrus fan. let’s get that straight.
but dear god, i’m so sick of hearing about how horrible her stupid twerk performance was the other night. seriously, people, who cares? it was a genius PR stunt. is there anyone you know who wasn’t (or still isn’t) talking about it?
here’s the thing i don’t get. miley was blasted for wearing a nude ‘kini and wiggling her butt on stage. but doesn’t anyone realize she was just mimicking robyn thicke’s “blurred lines” video? have people not seen it? if you haven’t, google it right now. like right this instant.
i’ve especially heard (or read) so many dads totally trash miley for being crude and corrupting society and our daughters…blah blah blah. funny, i don’t see any of those dads judging thicke for hiring NAKED girls to dance around him (while he’s fully clothed, natch…hello, sexist) in the video, and i certainly haven’t heard anyone berating the naked girls (oh sorry, they’re actually wearing nude thongs and white sneakers). oh wait, that’s cuz every guy on earth—especially dads—thinks it’s the greatest video ever made. hmmm…hypocritical much?
i keep hearing peeps yappin’ about “poor billy ray cyrus.” well poor ol’ billy ray is probably laughing with his baby girl, twerking their asses all the way to the bank. hell, if someone offered me a shit-ton of cash to wear that outfit and shake my bohungus at the VMAs, i’d do a few butt crunches and start practicing my technique.
okay, maybe miley was dissing her disney days. so what? britney did the same stinkin’ thing. this isn’t anything new. like it or not, the gal’s gotta grow up. didn’t you rebel when you were young? cuz i sure did. my dad used to say i looked like i was “advertising” myself in my skimpy bodysuits and micro minis. the difference is the world is watching miley’s every move. she’s obviously an attention whore, but then again, so was i…and what other young starlet isn’t? she nailed (no pun intended) a genius PR stunt. no matter what you think of her, you gotta admit that.
another thing is everyone’s calling miley names. she’s a slut, a skank, a whore. but wait a second, isn’t she engaged? or maybe she’s not anymore; i have no idea. the point is, hasn’t she been with liam what’s-his-face for like, over 4 years? um, how is that slutty? i think that’s longer than i’ve been with puddn.
the way i see it, the stage is like the theater, and performers do just that…they perform. do you think lady gaga wears a raw meat dress while she’s sitting around at home watching “orange is the new black?” hell, maybe she does…what do i know? my point is that it’s acting. if some young actress had twerked her buns all over a dude in a movie, we wouldn’t bat an eye.
but i digress. look, the more parents complain about miley, the more the kids are gonna love her. that’s a fact. and guess who she cares about pleasing? sorry to break it to you, but it’s not you. miley probably wants you to hate her. cuz that means your daughter—and all her friends—are gonna love her. get it?
and twerking? come on, everyone loves a good booty shake. hell, my 3-year-old, lulu, twerks. that’s cuz it’s fun. i thought people loved it ‘til miley’s twerk heard ‘round the world. i bet the peeps who hate it probably just can’t do it.
to me, the most disgusting parts of miley’s stunt were her stupid hair and that dumb tongue-wagging. ew, what was that? now that was offensive.
anyway, i say let’s just move on…’til the next disney star decides to booty shake her innocence off.
i’m still not a miley fan. not at all. but damn it, “i can’t stop. and i won’t stop.”
