Another Ex-Disney Starlet Goes Slutty: Miley Cyrus Fakes Lesbian Kiss on TV

posted at 4:02 pm on June 4, 2010 by

Britney Spears, burnout baby-mama. Lindsay Lohan, burnout drunk. Now, 17-year-old former Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus does the fake-lesbian shtick in a guest performance on Britain’s Got Talent . Skip to 1:20 if you want to be (not) shocked:

Look: If this kind of stunt was boring when Adam Lambert did it last year, why does Miley Cyrus think it’s exciting this year? At what point will these celebrities figure out that their faux-bohemian épater le bourgeois gestures are no longer avant-garde?

Exit question: If this is what Miley has to do to get attention in her post-Disney career, how long before Selena Gomez or the Jonas Brothers get into a sex-video scandal?

One, yes, this is unfortunate.

Two, It was inevitable as she was going down this road years ago and have morally vacuous parents who encouraged this path.

Three……..Sorry, but this songs rocks if for only the reason that she sings with out the “Whitney Houston” vibrato, elongated note garbage genre that has infested EVERY F^%$#% singer in the last decade.

Ugh. I truly wish there were another career path for these girls. Well, of course there are many other choices — what I wish is that they would see them.

Oh, she’s tamed, all right. Untamed, these days, would be NOT prancing around in proto-S&M gear and 5-inch heels with a half-ton of sludge on each eyelid, hollering about how untamed you are. It would scare people to death, to see her come out in a tasteful evening dress and pumps, like Petula Clark or Diana Ross, and just sing a ballad. We’re not nearly as untamed as we think we are.

I do agree with Opposite day that the absence of the Houston copycat vibrato is a blessing. (Although it’s hysterical to watch tiny 80-lb Asian girls do it.) Miley Cyrus seems to be more in the Madonna mold in terms of her singing style.

*sigh*
it breaks my achy heart.

Zactly. And well said.

The song’s not bad, but the costume is disturbing and the whole staging is unnecessary.

joe_doufu on June 4, 2010 at 6:21 PM

Worse part is that she has a lot of little kid fans. At least with Brittany, you kind of new what you were going to get when her first song was “hit me baby one more time.”

deidre on June 4, 2010 at 6:42 PM

Probably time to start a betting pool on what day we’ll get Miley’s first ‘inadvertent’ boob shot.

Bingo. Including my 7-year-old daughter.

Or worse; think Britney, paparazzi, and a car.

OhioCoastie on June 4, 2010 at 7:10 PM

Not as many little girl fans as she might think. Her clothes don’t sell well and my daughters and their friends (12 and 8) want nothing to do with her new “style”.

That’s 12 and 8.

Unfortunately, this is what sells in this perverted generation. Her agents are advising her to play the ho part to appeal to the older teens & young adults who spend the most money on music.

itsnotaboutme on June 4, 2010 at 8:36 PM

Why does she have to bend over so hard to squeeze out a not-so-challenging note? Kinda pointless trying so hard to be sexy when you look like a retarded monkey trying to hold in a case of the runs.

RachDubya on June 4, 2010 at 8:42 PM

Unfortunate.

Cylor on June 5, 2010 at 2:33 AM

That’s too bad. Major disappointment.

pugwriter on June 5, 2010 at 9:48 AM

Yawn. Inevitable. Bring up the next wholesome girl they can drag into the slime.

austinnelly on June 5, 2010 at 1:30 PM

Great ! How original ! So does this mean what 3 or 4 years until she shaves her head and goes ballistic on some stalkers ? Ho hum..

cableguy615 on June 5, 2010 at 7:40 PM

I think the real problem is that people object to the Disney kids growing up. For some reason, we want them to be 14 and innocent for the rest of their lives.

Folks, your kids grow up, all the kids grow up. She’s what, 17 or 18 now? She’s an adult for all intents and purposes. She can’t be that 14 year old Disney star for the rest of her life, stop trying to judge her by that measuring stick.

The problem comes when age doesn’t bring maturity. Cyrus has adult freedom, but there are lots of five-year-olds who have more wisdom than she does.

I always thought that without daddy’s help she would have never made it passed the back row in the school play. Her singing is okay, but never awesome. Her dancing is like the missing link monkey you mention. And even when she’s not moving like a goofy klutz… she still looks weird as often as not. The hair makes her look like she has no neck… Cut and style please.

That all said. I’ve seen the kids show and thought that it was decent for the age it was aimed at… pre-teen. Shame that she is going to drag so many kids down with her. Not all her fans will follow… but far too many.

Snake307: +1.

They grow up. As soon as you can all purge the demand for oversexualization in your own houses then you might be half entitled to be so judgemental of performers who get pulled in this direction not by hollywood, not by marketers but by YOU and your contributions however small to media which fits the formulas that sell.

And seriously, it’s a role model’s job to stay locked into YOUR 5 year old’s conception of them because you choose not to perform adequate parenting to prevent them from idol worship in the first place? Please, grow up and take some responsibility for the education and preperation of your children to function in the real, broken and often sordid world we live in.

You cannot delegate your responsibility to teach them to know on their own what is good and affirming and wholesome for them and what isn’t by expecting performers to remain frozen into the first role they ever played as a child. People grow and change, more often from wise to unwise than the reverse and if you aren’t teaching your children this you are failing.

I use her as a role model to show my children how not to act. I mention her “friends” posting pictures of her on the internet that were controversial and use that as an example to not put yourself in those situations.

I also use her as an example to my 11 year old on how horrible it looks when you don’t stand up straight. That’s what makes her look like she doesn’t have a neck.

Miley is just desperately trying to remain relevant and doing it in all the wrong ways.
