I am not a prude. I am also, above all else a realist. Today is the day I am glad I do not have a daughter.
Yes, I am talking about Miley Ray Cyrus and her turn as Striperella at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The girl is 20 years old and she basically performed a good whore’s stripper repertoire last evening. All she was missing was the stripper pole and some gross old men snapping dollar bills into her underwear.
I am not going to get into the whole Parents’ Television Council thing on sexually charged messages on TV and so on, but as a parent I have to ask where are hers?
Miley Cyrus has parents. Why I hear Achy Breaky has been pop Billy Ray Cyrus according to Huffington Post was tweeting support of his kid after her performance. Your daughter acts like a hooker meets stripper on stage is not yet even 21 and you are going to support that behavior? Atta girl, split your tips with daddy? Yuck.
And here I thought no one could top Brintney Spears sucking face with the pop star who has left no lips unturned, Madonna.
Yep and MTV thought this was fab:

Here are some of the other headlines she garnered:
Miley Cyrus VMA Performance Of ‘We Can’t Stop’ Hits MTV; Network Censors ‘Molly’ Lyric (VIDEO) The Huffington Post | By Christopher Rosen Posted: 08/25/2013 9:19 pm EDT | Updated: 08/26/2013 11:33 am EDT
Like it or not, young girls emulate this garbage. And everyone grows up fast enough without running around looking and behaving like porn stars. I am amazed enough at how forward and even aggressive some tween and young teen girls are, why do you want them to have this pop tart as a role model? Didn’t they learn enough from Blair and Serena on Gossip Girl for all those years? One Tree Hill? 90210 both times (except the original was so tame by comparison to what was just cancelled.)?
Again, I am not a prude, but even I was kind of grossed out by this. To me this seems like a young girl who wants attention, only doesn’t know how to attract the positive kind any parent wants their kids to have. Yes little girls and teens are going to push the envelope with inappropriate (and even dare I say it, tacky) clothing, but wow, do you want them add a strip tease and bump and grind to the dance team performances at school?
I don’t know why every young star wants to be on the Lindsey Lohan tour bus of infamy, but apparently they do. What I would love to know is how do the parents of these young celebrities justify what they have allowed to happen to their kids? How do they sleep at night after pimping their children out?
Miley dear, you will learn as you age it doesn’t always pay to advertise.
