And now, the moment I know you’ve all been waiting for….my Miley Cyrus post.
For months, I’ve been obsessed with Miley for whatever reason. I’ve wanted to write a blog post about her, but haven’t been able to form coherent words because I’m in such a state of confusion about her. I love her, but I don’t, but I REALLY really do love her. So yesterday, I decided while I was at work to write about some thoughts and try and pull them all together and analyze why I love her, and hate JBiebs, and compare some parts of Miley’s career and just gush about her.
Firstly, before I talk about my reasons for loving/hating MC, let’s just talk about her. Remember when it “Can’t Be Tamed” was SO crazy? What about her “rap” about deleting her Twitter? I remember everyone freaking out about that. Or when she was filmed smoking Salvia? Okay, that one was a big thing. But the others weren’t. Also, her hair. I have loved her haircut since the day she did it. Everyone thought she was going Britney and shaving her head, but I loved it. I’m all for girls cutting all their hair off. Obviously. I don’t think you can do anything better to show you’re transitioning to something than drastically changing your hair. Whether it’s just discovering who you are, or trying to get away from a certain perceived role, cutting/dyeing your hair is the best way to do it. Just look at Emma Watson or JLaw or even women who cut/shaved their hair for movie roles: they committed to breaking away for “traditional” styles that women have. So for that, I commend Miley for getting away from the Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana look.
Miley Cyrus is beautiful. I loved Hannah Montana when it was on, but never really was a fan of her. 11-year-old Miley was annoying and goofy-looking (as most 11-year-olds are anyway), and I was more of a Lily fan anyway. But right up before she cut her hair and currently, I think Miley is gorgeous. Except when she does the weird knots on her head. That looks dumb. Even her style (when she is actually wearing clothes, mind you,) –sometimes– is pretty cute.
- See You Again: I can’t sing this song now without doing it this way, “The last time I freaked out, I just kept looking down, I stu-stu-stuttered when he asked me what I’m thinkin’ ’bout. Bangerz, bangerz. Felt like I couldn’t breathe, he asked what’s wrong with me. My best friend laughed and said, ‘Oh she’s just bein’ Miley.’ “
- Hoedown Throwdown vs. 4×4 feat. Nelly: Really. Listen to the music of these two songs. I’m sure someone has put these together on YouTube, because they are basically the same song. Okay. I just checked, and I can’t find it anywhere, but just listen for yourself and compare them.
- Then there’s this:
