So I finally watched the Miley Cyrus performance from the 2013 VMA’s. What I have learned by watching this bull shit is that Miley Cyrus is a horrible singer. How she has a record deal is beyond me. I guess talent is no longer a prerequisite to being a singer.
Also, let’s talk about her “twerking” on stage. Miley Cyrus’ ass is as flat as an ironing board. How in the hell do you “twerk” with no ass? Also, the segment with her and Robin Thicke…it’s a damn shame that is what passes for entertainment these days. Then again, I am a dinosaur and am no longer the target audience for what is considered popular music.
Now, if we go back and look at the career of Rihanna, you will some similarities to her and Miley Cyrus’ journey. Both came out and in the beginning had these clean cut good girl images. Both then started down a path of no longer being the good girl. Rihanna became the target in a lot of people’s cross hairs for the transition of her image. Miley Cyrus, while making the exact same transition, is looked upon as a young independent woman doing what she wants to do on her own terms.
GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE WITH THAT BULL SHIT.
Yet again, we see the same double standard that has always been there, but far too many of you don’t see it. When this young black woman does it, she is looked down upon and talked about as if she has murdered everyone’s 1st born baby girl. When a young white woman does the exact same thing that the young black woman was condemned for doing, she is not condemned as the young black woman was. She is damn near celebrated for doing it.
Now, that seems a little odd to me, that when two people do the same thing, one is condemned and one is celebrated. Then again, I also believe that no double standard is allowable. At some point, society has to stop this kind of bull shit and levy the same words on people when the people do the same things, and stop elevating one over the other.
Above when I talked about Miley being celebrated, those were things I have read that were pre-VMA performance. whether or not those same people are still going to speak positively about her after this performance remains to be seen.
