OK We Get It… Miley Cyrus Is No Longer Hannah Montana…

Nothing that MTV does or would-be pop stars do, including Miley Cyrus, on its shows is surprising to me - I know that now it is all about ‘shock value’ and that no time is spent on nurturing talent, which is woefully lacking in modern music. Incidentally, I can write about the pending war with Syria or the brutal murder of a World War 2 veteran by a couple of Black thugs up in Washington or the main stream Media’s sonic boom silence on the Black-on-White racial murder of an Australian student in Oklahoma, but instead I will opine on Miley Cyrus’ ‘performance’ on MTV because my ten-year-old daughter used to be an avid fan of Hannah Montana.

I also use to be shocked what many of us would do for fame… but not anymore. I happened to research how much Miss Cyrus is worth and I came up that it is north of a $150 million… so right off the bat, we know that it is not the money… but it is to be in the lime light at any cost and chasing the jagged walk of shame/fame.

Now, Miss Cyrus should not shoulder all the blame for her ‘questionable performance,’ because the MTV Executives should do too. These executives I know have children, yet they saw fit to put this soft core porn on at an hour when they knew that teens and pre-teens were watching… because of the potential, financial bonanza in ratings was all that matter - can anyone tell me the difference between those MTV executives and the common pimps that troll the streets of our inner cities?

And even Miss Cyrus knows that ratings are what matter by the very fact that she tweeted that her almost porn performance had many hits… you noticed that, like the typical star, that to Miss Cyrus… it was not her fault and by her tweets, that the end justifies the means… and moreover, no apology to her pre-teens fans who may have been watching Miss Cyrus in her skin-tone panties.

I also wonder how much blame should be placed on Robin Thicke, the recipient of Miley’s gyrating, especially the former being her senior and who must have known of the particulars of the controversial performance… I can bet you that like the Janet Jackson Super Bowl performance - where a nipple was exposed – Mr. Thicke, like Justin Timberlake, will throw Miss Cyrus under the proverbial bus… but it is for fame… so it’s OK.

Madonna kissed a girl; Britney wore the school-girl-uniform, while suggestively licking a lollipop and gyrated with a snake; and now Miley Cyrus’ strip-club performance. I supposed now that the next act we are going to see on MTV - or in my case that I will hear about - is bestiality on stage and believe it or not there are those of us who are going to rationalize such a performance.

I remembered that even when an artist was trying to be risque... that it was a mystery to figure out; case in point, as a boy, it took me quite some time to figure out Prince’s lyrics from his song, Little Red Corvette: “… she had a pocket full of horses, Trojans, and some of them used….” I often wondered too that if the Miley Cyruses’ of the world lived to be in their fifties or so - are they still going to be gyrating on the stages… how pathetic. How about the novel idea of sitting down at a piano, Ala Aretha Franklin, The Queen of Soul, and playing Bridge Over Troubled Waters?

We all know the lengths and what these stars are willing to do to rekindle interests in their flaming out careers: first, they will do something provocative to top what their peers have done in the past; and if it doesn’t work, then they will pose nude, albeit tastefully; and if that doesn’t light the dying embers of fame, then they will release a sex tape; if that doesn’t work, then they will find some dead uncle who may have allegedly molested them; and if that doesn’t work, then they will die from substance abuse or suicide and hope that their respective funerals bring out the paparazzi in droves. It is rather sad and telling that many a News outlets already have obituaries written for many of our young pop stars, perhaps among them, Miss Cyrus...I sincerely hope not.

      Miss Cyrus would have never come across my radar if my daughter was not a fan of her show, Hannah Montana....

      I appreciate your opinion on issues like this. Hope more parents are paying attention, since children don't always know what to do with the information they get from these people. Thank you for sharing.
