Enough with this Miley Cyrus bull$#!%
The overexposure is really starting to rankle my ass, and the pop-garbage media, apparently at a loss of things to talk about (but that’s why they’re pop-garbage), have latched onto the Miley Cyrus flap over her Vanity Fair photo shoot.
To the pop-garbage media: Stop it. Stop it now.
First of all, the whole Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana hype has been too much for me to stomach for a while now. Clearly, she’s been groomed and is following the general career template to be the next Britney Spears — although one would hope she has a career and personal life that does not ultimately become the train wreck that Spears has.
But I’ve simply had enough. Everywhere in the entertainment “news” is Miley freaking Cyrus and whatever mildly naughty thing she may/may not have done. This is less Cyrus’ fault than the media being unhealthy about whatever they think we want to see about her.
While she and her parents are responsible for approving the Vanity Fair shoot that has prompted this frenzy and they must shoulder some of the blame, I have to ask what the photographers and magazine editors were thinking. Am I the only one who finds it more than just a little bit unseemly how the media is subtly trying to sexualize this 15-year-old girl for the masses?
From the gossip reports about her maybe-boyfriend(s) and, (sneakily implied) possible sex life, to the Vanity Fair photos themselves, which show her in various states of semi-undress, this whole thing is just shameful. I don’t blame Miley Cyrus; I blame an entertainment “news” cycle that knows that sex sells, and is so cynical as to reach down to the age of 15 and lower to deliver the goods. It’s not healthy.
But mostly I’m just sick of the hype surrounding this overexposed teenager. Enough is enough. Get out of my fluff news cycle.
And, by the way: I hate that song of hers that they always play on the radio. It’s annoying pop garbage. I have nothing against pop garbage per se, but it can’t be that annoying if they’re going to play it 20 times a day.
