Miley Cyrus is all anyone is talking about. The critics don’t agree with her choices. Miley is trying to become a new artist, and her style is being harshly rejected. This hate and disgust towards her is coming from her Hannah Montana fans. What happened to Miley? What happened to her self-dignity? Who raised her? What’s wrong with her? Maybe we all are asking these questions because we watched her grow up on the Disney Channel. Some people aren’t ready to let go of Hannah Montana.
Lady Gaga has made some crazy choices, but the public never blows it out of proportion. Is this because we didn’t watch Lady Gaga grow up on our favorite T.V show? If we didn’t watch Miley grow up on Disney, then maybe it wouldn’t be such a big deal.
Miley’s new music video for Wrecking Ball, her new single, is receiving critical reviews. Miley defended herself by saying in Huffington Post, “I think the video is much more. If people get past the point that I’m naked and actually look at me, you can tell that I actually look more broken than even the song sounds. The song is a pop ballad. It’s one of those songs that everyone is going to relate to, everyone’s felt that feeling at some point. If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination a little bit, they would see what the video really means and the way it is so vulnerable.” Cyrus keeps explaining, “If you look in my eyes I look sadder than my voice actually sounds on the record. It was a lot harder to do the video than it was to even record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.” She told the interviewer. This song is inspired by her 4 year on and off boyfriend/fiancé Liam Hemsworth. Miley is trying to explain the feeling of hurt she goes through every day, but people are taking it the wrong way.
Many have watched Miley grow up, of course we all miss Hannah Montana, but she can’t be fifteen forever. Miley is trying to find her new self, and many call this a phase. They say she needs help. Kids idolized Miley, wanting to be her when they grew up. Now that she is confused, just like everyone on this planet, we think it is okay to give her hate and label her. Just remember that we think Lady Gaga is weird, but we don’t shun her music and her style. Why is that so hard to do for Miley? Miley is definitely different now, but that doesn’t matter. Despite all the hate, when “We Can’t Stop” comes on, you sing along. Before you judge Miley give her a chance to prove her new spot in the music industry.
