Miley Cyrus seems to have lost the plot – or at least it appears that way. Having found fame as a child star in Disney’s hit series, Hannah Montana, where she played both a regular teenager as well as a famous singer-songwriter, one would think that she would make a gradual transition from being a child star to an adult actor and thereby maintain the respect of her existing fan base. Whilst I’m sure many love her new image, she has certainly tarnished her previous image which served her so well for so many years and earned her a truckload of money.
Her rather controversial performance with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music awards had all the social media sites abuzz. Confusion reigned as even her most loyal fans were divided about her questionable behaviour. Upon taking to the stage in her skin-coloured latex bra and thong, Miley proceeded to gyrate, stick her tongue out and repeatedly pointed to Thicke’s crotch and her own with a large foam finger. Next came the twerking. Yes, the twerking that made headlines – ad nauseam!
But it doesn’t end there. Her latest music video, Wrecking Ball, once again has tongues wagging. It comes as no surprise that Miley has now taken things one step further by appearing completely naked straddling a large black wrecking ball and suggestively licking and caressing various building tools. What’s strange is that Miley can’t understand why people are making such a big deal about her video and her overt sexual behaviour. For many, it’s just simply too over the top and they would rather be logged in at http://www.jackgold.com playing an online game of roulette than watch Miley play roulette with her career.
In a telephone interview with New York’s Z100, Miley is reported to have said, “I think the video is much more. If people get past the point that I’m naked and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds. If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means it is so vulnerable.” She went on to say, “Actually, if you look at my eyes I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record. It was a lot harder to actually do the video than it was to even record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.”
What Miley’s next move is, remains to be seen, but at least she can now tick off ‘create a scandal’ from her bucket list.
