Why I am now a fan of Miley Cyrus

Updated on July 12, 2016

Earlier this week, Miley Cyrus appeared on the late night talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, doing what she does best—displaying her assets on screen. Wearing an embellished skirt and a matching cape with nothing but heart-shaped pasties underneath, she made Jimmy Kimmel blush and cover his face with embarrassment at one point.

I have never been a huge Miley Cyrus fan but I have also never been a hater. Even when she shook the world with her VMA performance in 2013, I still thought don’t average women do the same things—in fact, more inappropriate things—in bars and clubs? So what makes her worse than an average woman? Vanessa Hudgens twerked on David Letterman and was hardly noticed by anyone. Katy Perry wears revealing clothes all the time and somehow that’s OK, but when Miley does something similar or perhaps a little worse, it seems to enrage everyone.

So why the double standard?

Are you a fan of Miley Cyrus?

Since the 2013 VMA, I sort of started considering myself a Miley supporter, but only in certain situations. It’s not that I support public nudity, or commend her on, what many would call, crazy marketing tactics. I guess I never fully understood the motives behind her excessive “openness.” I am also not necessarily comfortable with her dressing and the kind of behavior she exhibits in public. If I ever see her in front of me with nothing on but nipple pasties, I would be just as uncomfortable as anyone else. But at the same time—given my conservative background—I would also be uncomfortable if I see someone in a bikini. To me, Miley’s “dressing” and a bikini are not too far off.

However, I think we should never tell someone how to dress or what to wear. Isn’t that what we are taught in this country—that we should be ourselves?

On his show earlier this week, Jimmy Kimmel asked Miley what her dad thinks of her when he turns on the TV and she said “…he’d rather me have my tits out and be a good person than have a shirt on and be a bitch.”

I was sold when I heard this.

We come across so many people who are fake, rude, mean, and ungenuine. As a society, we are more OK, with assholes than nudists. Thinking about several of my life experiences, I thought wouldn’t I prefer to have a person like her in my life than have fake, rude or disloyal people? When I found the answer to this question, I officially declared myself a member of the Miley club!

      @Rumasa, I had heard that about Katy Perry, and while she doesn't receive the same level of criticism as Miley, she does receive a fair share. Both also receive a high level of ridicule for their public behavior. If Miley is happy with her reputation as a person of low morals and sluttiness then who am I to begrudge her. She's made more money sticking out her tongue and getting intimate with construction equipment than I'll ever see.

      @Alessio, I agree. She is who she is. People should accept and move on.

      @DWDavisRSL, I agree with you to an extent, but you have to remember that Miley was a "Disney" star. She was presented how Disney wanted her to be presented. People forget that she grew up, she is not a 13-year-old anymore. As far as I know, Katy Perry grew up in a very Christian household, but she isn't criticized for how she is now because she didn't grow up under a public eye.

      I always hate when people offend Miley Cyrus because of its behaviour. She is proud of her body and she demonstrates this, I don't find all these problems in what she does. But haters (not people who simply don't like an artist, but people who always have the need to put down an artist and his fandom) will always find a way to denigrate Miley.

      I think the problem people have with Miley is how quickly she went from wholesome girl to slutty exhibitionist with such speed and ease. The other female artists you mentioned never, to my knowledge, had a "clean" reputation to sully. Miley did. And that's what I think makes people so mad.
