She's a person that makes mistakes and is doing her best to live as her authentic self. She's doing charity work, making music a lot of people love and enjoy, and is still part of an old Disney icon that a lot of kids looked up to.
Seeing her VMA performance didn't sit well with me, but that's just my opinion. Blurred Lines is a really creepy and gross song, and seeing Miley dance on a much older guy was a bit unsettling. I didn't think the outfit was flattering, but she's grown and can chose what she puts on.
However, using black people as props in her performance(s?) and stealing from black culture and acting like she created it was and is not okay.
Overall, I think she's alright, but she's out of touch (i.e. racist) like a lot of rich people/celebrities.
Personally I think she just tries to hard. She has made her point that she is not "Hanna Montanna." Ok good we get it. She doesn't have to act so trashy. I am impressed by her contribution to the aids foundation and her "Happy Hippi" program she has started. I just wish she wouldn't be so open with her pot smoking and drug use. Young girls still see her as a role model even if she is an adult. You don't have to be a Disney star just to grow up acting crazy.
I use to like Miley. And yes I know that she is just doing what she feels like she should do to express her self. But when you are on Disney channel and all the children love you and look up to you then you need to watch what you say, do and what you wear. I will not let my little girl watch her any more because I do not want her thinking that those things are ok.
I love Miley Cyrus. She's young and having fun. She can do what she wants. Think about what you did when you were her age? Maybe it wasn't done in the public eye, but guess what, she makes way more than you do and has no shame about any of it.
You know I enjoyed Hannah Montana. My daughter and I used to watch it together. After her show she kinda went wild. I guess that's what you get growing up in show business. I'm still trying to understand the twerking.
