Miley Cyrus is just seeking attention with her twerking
Miley Cyrus’s “artistic” expression of licking sledgehammers and riding a wrecking ball naked did exactly what she wanted it to: it gave her fame [“ Cyrus is no rebel on Bangerz”, October 10-17].
Sinéad O’Connor tweeted the young troubled star advice: “The music business doesn’t give a shit about you, or any of us. They will prostitute you for all you are worth.”
Despite all these articles looking down at Cyrus, shaming her for gyrating for millions of strangers, she is just a young girl trying to satisfy greedy record labels. She is trying to sell everything she can to stay on top.
Of course, some musicians release pure-hearted music in attempts to secure fans, but chances are slim of forever staying noticed.
Cyrus knows what people always like, and have always liked, and gave them that: naked girls. In exchange, we gave her the popularity she craved.
People are trained to make a big deal out of things like twerking girls, even though the same people later turn angry at such popularity. We ogle and make others infamous, hoping that the negative attention will forever be directed at someone else.
Maybe the Hannah Montana murderer isn’t all bad; she’s just trying to stay noticed.
She’s a human being too, craving attention like the rest of us “unimportant” people.
In the end, we should have less of an achy-breaky heart about Cyrus’s decisions and realize she has the same mindset as many of us. Like her wise words said: “Life is what you make it.”
