COMMENTARY — We’ve all seen it. Most of us have talked about it. People have posted on Facebook, tweeted about it and had multiple water cooler conversations about it, and yet it seems to have happened again.
Yes, I’m talking about the self-destruction of Miley Cyrus.
I had the displeasure of watching her new music video “Wrecking Ball,” which is nothing more than Cyrus in her underwear (and much less than that at times) riding a wrecking ball and seductively licking a sledgehammer.
Folks, I can’t make this stuff up.
As if “twerking” all over a married man while doing unmentionable things to a sports foam finger at the VMA Awards earlier in the month weren’t enough, this girl has taken it a little further with this new video.
If you have been living under a rock and don’t know who we are talking about here, Miley Cyrus is also known as Hannah Montana to youth-age viewers. She is the daughter of well-known country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus.
I just happen to be a momma of four little girls who are absolutely in love with the music of Hannah Montana. She sang songs that were wholesome and you could dance and sing to them without worrying about any curse words or vulgar lyrics. Cyrus went from a wholesome household name to the punchline of many jokes in just a few months.
I’ve heard people say that she is just trying to break out of her youthful singing and acting career into a more adult role. Well let me tell you something, Cyrus, if you want to be treated like an adult, then it’s probably a good idea to ACT like an adult.
The last two appearances that I’ve seen of her involved nothing more than hormone-raged, teenage drama, stupidness that needs to be brought under control. The way she presents herself is not only cheap and disgusting, it’s degrading and pathetic — and that’s putting it mildly.
