No Sympathy for Miley Cyrus

I’m so sick of hearing about Miley Cyrus. Oh, the poor girl. She posed for photographs and now people don’t like it. What else can a poor girl do but climb up on the proverbial cross and moan about being mislead by evil-doers?
Okay, first the little lady’s quote about the mess;
“I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be ‘artistic’ and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed,” Cyrus said. “I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”
Um … wasn’t she present at the photo shoot? Her father, Billy Ray, and a team of handlers wereall present at the photo shoot. Did none of them see that poor Miley was being victimized before their very eyes? I mean, wouldn’t poor little Miley sitting there nude, wrapped in a satin sheet, not strike any of them as being a little racey?
Look, I’ve seen the picture. Personally, I think they are tamer than the pictures that have shown up on the Internet of Miley flashing her bra and giving the camera a “come fuck me” look. By comparison to that, the Vanity Fair pictures are hardly shocking.
This is a lot of noise about nothing. Remove the plastic innocence of the Walt Disney franchise from Miley Cyrus’ public persona and what you have is a young girl with a lot of success and notoriety who’s very ambitious and trying to get ahead. Her fan base is aging and she’s obviously already looking beyond Disney. Hence Vanity Fair. I have a hard time believing, given Annie Leibovitz’s history of provocative photos (nude, pregnant Demi Moore anyone?), that Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus went into the photo session like naive and starry-eyed cattle being led to slaughter.
From all initial reports, Miley Cyris liked the photos that were taken. It’s not like she hadn’t seen them before. She liked them until there was some public backlash. Then suddenly she feels like she was mislead? Bullshit.
I’m not losing sleep over this. I’m just sick of hearing about. You can’t surf the Internet without being spammed by shocked reactions to poor Miley’s plight. And naturally there are plenty of people rushing to the poor abused belle’s defense. It’s typical American bullshit. Personally, I think she should buck it up and accept responsibility for posing for the photos. Christ, her father and her grandmother were present at the photo shoot. And they all liked the photos before the shit hit the fan.
This is bullshit. It’s a non-story. Who the fuck cares? Why is Miley Cyrus in my fucking head? And why is Billy Ray Cyrus in my head again? I’ve already paid my dues where that fuck is concerned, by having to hear that damned “Achey Breaky” song a thousand times back in the 1800’s when he was last relevant. Stop hitching a ride on your daughter’s fame, ya fuck. Go away already.
In short, I have no sympathy for Miley Cyrus. I’d like to see her come out and say “I am young, ambitious, and I thought this photo shoot would help expand my appeal to a larger audience. If it was a miscalculation to assume that the general public would accept me in these photographs, I bear as much responsiblity for that miscalculation as Annie Lebowitz and Vanity Fair. It was I who willingly removed my clothes, in the presence of my father and grandmother, and posed for those photographs. If people were offended by that, I apologize.”
Now that would get my respect.
