Disgusting, obscene, pornographic, out of control. These are just some of the thousands of comments tweeted and posted on social media and blogs after the jaw-dropping performance of Miley Cyrus on the VMA’s the other night.
I do not watch MTV so I had to pull up the video after the fact to make sure that I was correct in my reporting, and after seeing it, I am in complete agreement with everything being said about this horrific display. The so-called performance was as close to onstage pornography as I have ever seen or heard of.
My question is; what was going through the minds of everyone involved in this blatant display of decadence and degradation? First of all, why would Miley Cyrus want to portray herself in such a way? I know she has issues with drugs as well as other psychological problems, but to willingly do something like this reeks of self-loathing and zero self-esteem. The others involved, like her managers, and the MTV producers are just sitting back smiling, dreaming of the amazing controversy this will stir up.
Here she was, the darling of Disney as the much loved and admired “Hannah Montana”, a little girl whom other little girls could look up to and imitate. Thousands of products had her face attached to them; she had the top rated show for Disney which eventually turned into feature films following the same theme. She glorified the squeaky clean image of the modern pre-teen.
Having been a child actress I know that it is very difficult to break out of the image that America loves. Back in the 1930’s, no one wanted to accept Shirley Temple as a grown woman. In the 60’s the road was strewn with former child stars that never could make the transition from cute kid to sexy adult. If you did want to make that leap, you had to do something drastic to make people accept you as someone else. I changed my name and moved to New York. Many tried and many failed, but none that I can remember went to the extreme of Miley Cyrus.
It seems that in today’s culture you don’t get noticed unless you absolutely shellshock people. We are so conditioned to hearing foul language, seeing people parade around in the nude, having sex on both the big screen and the small, that unless you see something so totally unbelievable you just shrug it off.
What is it about fame and attention that people (especially women), will degrade themselves to the point of humiliation? I don’t get it. Why do women continue to let themselves be treated like garbage, made fun of, and joked about? Instead of being gracious, elegant and talented, women are reduced to being nothing more than sex-objects, being famous for sex tapes or appearing as freaks.
The media says that the Republicans are waging a “war on women”. Well I’m sorry, but the libs in Hollywood have escalated that war and MTV was the General leading the way!
Who is it that puts out the raunchy tv shows, hard R rated films and sex filled videos? It is the far-left element in Hollywood that sees the gold at the end of that rainbow and as long as the cash comes in they don’t care what the impact is on our culture or our country. They don’t care how they portray women because there are always willing participants who will do anything for fame. When girls become pregnant in the hopes of landing a spot on “Teen Mom”, we know that all is lost.
These parasites continue to feed our children sex, violence and the need for fame. Look at the recent high profile killings in the U.S.; almost every one of these killers wanted to be famous and to be “trending” on Twitter. They know that there is always a book deal or movie coming if they do something heinous.
Miley Cyrus will probably become the darling of the media for a short time. She will end up doing more raunchy and disgusting videos and displays. She will hit the covers of all the rag magazines. But then what? What happens when she turns 21 and everyone has seen her act? They will become bored with her just like they did with Madonna and Lindsey Lohan. What is her future? How will she ever be taken seriously as a performer or better yet, as a wife and mother?
It’s a sad thing when young women can’t see what is being done to them. But what real chance do they have when they grow up idolizing the Kardashians, Lady Gaga and now Miley Cyrus?
We as mothers and grandmothers better wake up and teach our children values from the cradle or we really will be lost. They need to know what morality is and to recognize right from wrong. We need to teach them that bad behavior is NOT to be “rewarded” no matter how many times they may see it in the culture.
The leftists are doing their best to erase religion from every aspect of our lives and we are seeing the results. We are losing control of the narrative and we need to get it back. It is up to each and every one of us to win this war for the future women of America.
