I have no idea what twerking is but Miley Cyrus has the figure of a boy. No figure. The dancers were curvy and had some weight but she just looked silly and not at all sexy or whatever the point was supposed to be. The whole performance from the whole bunch was silly, imo. Was she supposed to look like a kid in that onesie before ripping it off? Maybe it's all more perverted than older people can make sense of.
Twerking apparently originated in west Africa and was meant to showcase certain attributes of the lady dancing. Yes, to whoever said women come In all shapes and sizes. But I saw a comment by someone that made me Laugh. Something to the effect of, "that wasn't Twerking. That was flapping two saltines together!"
A lot of the general public wants Miley to fail. Every time she does anything remotely scandalous, we get all these comments about how she's going to have a sex tape soon, going to rehab, will overdose, get arrested, a meltdown etc. People want that stuff to happen. They want her to pay for being super successful, famous, and wealthy as a child.
Oh goodness. Yes, I think there's a measure of shadenfruede when it comes to any big celeb on the part of some of the general public. That's a representation of our meaner side as a society.
But I also think it is grossly unfair to characterize all of us here criticizing Miley's antics as simply an expression of our anger at her success and desire to see her fall. Again, that smacks to me of the trend these days among young, spoiled, entitled punks who act like jerks and then dare anyone to criticize saying theyre just jealous or "only God can judge me!"
Yes, i have no doubt that people have likely been predicting her decline into rehab, drugs and sex tapes for years now. But to excuse that as mere shadenfruede is fairly simplistic thinking. Because we all know the drill when it comes to highly exploited child stars who have parents applauding their exploitation. It is not so much wishful thinking as it is good odds to base a bet on.
Finally, besides the fact of her childhood exploitation and what that often means to such a child's future, there are actual facts that support rehab and sex tape predictions in this case. You state people have been making those predictions since she was a teen. I seem to recall some of that started at the time her parents thought it okay for a 15 year old to be photographed staring seductively into a camera, while on a bed wearing nothing but a sheet, and draped all over her own father, while wearing skin tight jeans and a belly-baring shirt.
Then a year later, her same parents felt it was great that their 16 year old rode in to a televised show on a candy truck and then slithered like a pole dancer around a candy pole, opening her legs like a stripper, to the audience.
I kind of think those may have been clues as to where this was all going, ya know?
But for me personally, I actually forgot all that. My comments about sex tapes and getting naked had to do purely with her latest constant twitter photos in which she purposefully posts pictures of herself showing underboob and B utt cheeks, coupled with this performance. IMO, this girl is dying to get naked in public because she believes that crass sexuality is edgy and mature.
I think she's mistaken.
She gives an embarrassing performance, and that means she's going to rehab, jail, releasing a sex tape, going to overdose? Posts about her dying in her 20's are absolutely ridiculous. There's a major overreaction by everyone. People were saying those same things back in 2009 after her TCA performance, and four years later, it still hasn't happened.
It's kind of hilarious and sad too to see what a 20-year-old brings out in people. Ever since she was a teenager, people's reactions to her seem to be a little too intense. People go absolutely nuts over little "scandalous" thing that she does.
You do know Miley is only 20? Do you also realize the song she performed was about partying on "Mali/Molly" all night and doing whatever they want because it's their house? You do understand Miley is now known for partying with drugs and has been for a few years?
Coupled with her childhood stardom and exploitative and spoiling parents, do you not think the predictions may be based on some reality?
