I am not smiley over Miley anymore...

kiddie porn.
because Leibovitz shot it, and it's in Vanity Fair, it's ok?

where do we draw the line for sexuality to be used in gaining fame? sure, talk about Kim Kardashian's backside, or David Beckham's rippling abs...oogle Pam Anderson at 41 still as toned as ever - but to look at a 15 year old that way? come on, it's a little twisted.

it's only a matter of time before media, pressure, success and our people make her into a train wreck like many other teen-turn-adult stars: Lezlo, Spears, MJ, Corey Haim, etc...

why she gets on my nerves:

  • her real name is Destiny Hope Cyrus.
  • at the age of 14.5 she was earning $3.5 million - last year she earned $18.7 million.
  • on the show, Hannah Montana, her name is Miley Stewart.
  • she now has her father's middle name as a stage name.
  • her show moniker is Hannah Montana and her second album titled Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus had all of the songs on it written by Destiny Hope Cyrus.
  • she is a wax figure at Madame Tussauds, already.
  • as a 15 year old, she appears in Vanity Fair wrapped only in a bed sheet.
  • she is blonde when she is Hannah, and brunette when she is Destiny, or should I say Miley, or should I say Miley Ray.
are you as confused as I am? she has multiple identities, parents who apparently allow her to be portrayed as a sex symbol when she is nothing more than 'a barely cute kid' and we support this!

she is no different than the annoying spoiled teens on Gossip Girl, The OC, The Hills - well, except for the fact that she gets caught in precarious circumstances quite often, for a 15 year old: near nude cell phone pics, scandalous magazine spreads and the like.

I am not hating on this teenager. I am concerned about the attention and pressure we give to young women. Daniel Radcliffe, Mr. Harry Potter himself - wasn't a sex symbol at 15, he wasn't shot nude wrapped in a bedsheet - nor did he take lude photos with his phone while 8 year olds chanted his name, and he made millions.

do you see where I am going with this?

anyway, enough of my rant - here is this little hussy talking...and fyi, everyone is confused including Barbara Walters and Rosie. her pitch in her voice alone is enough to drive you crazy, here she is on The View where she admits to being annoying.
