Hey I understand that Hannah Montana has to grow up….but into what?
I think Miley needs to get it right if she wants to change her squeaky clean image from her teen years of being Disney Channel’s sweetheart to an Icon. Perhaps though crotch grabbing, twerking and wrestling with a giant foam finger is not the way to get positive attention. Fortunately I don’t think she cares what kind of attention she gets, for any publicity is good publicity! For after all, isn’t the blogosphere alive with crushing comment on her antics of last night. But aren’t we getting over-exposed to her and the ilk of attention grabbing mediocre talented women who want to shock us?
I’m not a prude, I didn’t mind Miley running around first in her Teddy Bear outfit and the tearing-off to reveal her flesh colored underwear……I object more to the lack of singing talent when these “stars” are so busy being outrageous. Was it necessary for a young girl, who is dying to break that Disney image to grind a married man, use her tongue to show us she has or has not had a tonsillectomy, and brazenly run around the stage with a foam finger making grossly unneeded suggestive movements? We get it MILEY, you’re cool and all-grown up! I’d like to know what Robin Thicke was thinking for taking part in this unseemly display of Miley’s need to prove her sexuality and her “I don’t care what anyone says” attitude. (I would think his wife must have been very proud!)
Onto Lady Gaga, who opened the show with her version of what’s relevant…a white nun’s outfit with a posterboard around her head. It was bizzare, but not anything out of the norm for Lady Gaga………from there there were so many outfit changes that her dancers ripped off her, it was quite confusing, What’s new or original with bowling balls, and ripping off costumes and redressing and changing wigs……..Cher’s been doing it for years! Again, I thought it should have been more about the singing which was quite theatrical even for Lady Gaga and just a mediocre performance which was rewarded with booing. Has the most outrageous lady lost her lustre?
The reaction of the Smith family (of Will Smith notoriety) says it all, for both performers. It’s not sure who’s act they are reacting to. I’ve heard both Miley and Lady Gaga……but does it matter……..this photo says it all…….not all this non-sense is kid friendly!
