5 Celebs Share Their Thoughts on Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus has been causing a huge stir as of late: when she’s not bickering with Sinead O’Connor, smoking dope overtly or twerking her way towards a ‘Parental Advisory’ stamp, Miley is usually sticking her tongue out or hanging with photographer-meets-pornographer Terry Richardson. Hannah Montana and the good girl image that went with it have long been destroyed and there is a very new, very different Miley in town. So, what does everyone have to say about Miley, her new persona and her naughty MTV VMAs performance? These 5 celebs have weighed in on the subject. Some believe that what she is doing is great and that she is merely expressing herself. Others think she is on a destructive path that could potentially be very dangerous. Check out their opinions below!
Demi is excited for Miley’s career:”I know Miley very well. Miley has been one of my best friends growing up and so I’m happy for her. She’s doing what she wants to do and this is her time to break out and figure out, you know, what she wants to do in her career and her image and everything.”
Elton feels that Miley is on the fast-track to disaster: “I see a meltdown waiting to happen … And she’s so young! But she’s got two records in the top 20, so who is going to stop her?”
Jay believes Miley is just being herself and wants to shake off her old image: “She’s being herself, she’s expressing herself. “I think it’s more a reaction to people wanting her to be Hannah Montana… On course, maybe it’s loud, but it’s understandable.”
Justin knows Miley is smart and thinks the media might have turned on her: “I don’t know that I have a definitive thought in one direction or the other about it, I think she’s really smart, and I think she’s really talented. I’m not saying I agree with the presentation, but I also feel like every 10 to 15 years we pick somebody that this is what we’re going to do with them, is we’re going to make them the model of who we want our daughters to be or not be.”
Irish singer Sinead wrote an open letter to Miley, voicing her concerns:”I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way ‘cool’ to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos. The music business doesn’t care about you, or any of us. Women are to be valued for so much more than their sexuality. We aren’t merely objects of desire. I would be encouraging you to send healthier messages to your peers.. that they and you are worth more than what is currently going on in your career.”
