THE CONTROVERSY KNOWN AS MILEY CYRUS IS NOT OK!
Miley Cyrus’s recent crazy antics, self-exploitation, and blatant and obscene exhibition of sexuality are not cute. They are not funny. They are not sexy. They are not empowering. They are not entertaining. They are not artistic. They are not healthy.
THEY. ARE. SAD.
“Wickedness never was happiness.”
And friends, we NEED (young) women who are classy. We need women who respect themselves and others. We need these women as role-models for our own children.
One of my favorite musicians expresses this same sentiment:
I’m looking for a four-course meal that isn’t based in base desire
I’m looking for a lady that knows the soul is more than an appetizer
But back to the troublesome twerker:
Ms. Cyrus, I only just recently wrote you a letter concerning your disappointing music video “Wrecking Ball. (I wrote your confused father, Billy Ray, a letter as well).” I didn’t expect to be writing about you again so soon, but you’ve left me no choice.
Miley seriously, you must make a change.
I beg of you to stop before you self-destruct. Truly.
Readers, as is always the case,
if you agree with what I’m saying,
please pass this along.
but I think it’s a blessing.
I ain’t perfect, but I am conscious of those who may look up to me.
And again, no money directly from this blog yet (but indirectly yes!), so it’s highly possible that I am grossly over-estimating any influence I may or may not have. Oh, and this post just wouldn’t be complete without a little Taylor:
