She had an opportunity to be a role model to little girls who so desperately need good, wholesome people in Hollywood to look up to. Now there is no way that I would allow my daughters to go to one of her concerts or to purchase one of her new albums.
Her little plan is working in her favor though, as her newest music video set records with the most views on Vevo in a 24-hour period following its debut on Monday. If this whole thing is one big publicity stunt, then it is surely working. People are talking about her everywhere I go. But no one is talking about it in a good light.
Some are speaking about how sad it is to see a girl with so much potential sell herself like a cheap backroom call girl. And others are talking about how her family must feel about it. Can you imagine helping your daughter get so far in life, encouraging her singing career and helping her with lines for her acting debut, only to see it come to fruition in the form of her riding a wrecking ball in the nude and licking a hammer for all of the world to see. The shame for them must be so unbearable. It’s hard enough watching someone else’s daughter do that to herself, I can’t imagine being her parents as she goes through this stage in her life.
It is so sad that our society allows this to happen, and yet here I sit as guilty as any. I watched the video. (I will never watch it again, thank God, but I did watch it to see what all the hype was about.) It’s filth, pond scum, disgusting and I pray to God that my daughters never look up to a woman like that as a role model in their lives. When I see Miley Cyrus, I don’t know if I should feel sad for her, or just go punch her in the throat. I know, I know, that’s violent and definitely not the right answer, but if I’m being honest about what my head wants to do, that’s going be my go-to move in this situation.
