This is a shameless attempt to boost traffic to my blog by featuring “Miley Cyrus” as a search term.
This whole Miley vs. Sinead feud has me laughing. Yes, after the fourth open letter to Miley, Sinead is starting look a little kooky, but you must admit she had a point at first. Everything Miley has done since the infamous “twerking” episode at the MTV Video Music Awards has more in common with prostitution than with music.
Considering past VMAs featured classic music moments as Madonna and Britney Spears sucking face, does this surprise anyone? Between the VMAs and those stupid reality shows, the only way women get on MTV is by prostituting themselves and selling their bodies. I don’t want to sound like a curmudgeon, but no one is talking about the music on MTV.
Don’t get me wrong, prostitution has its place – in a whorehouse. But as long as MTV reduces its female artists to performing dry-hump strip teases and they willingly oblige, it’s hard to take the women of today’s MTV seriously as musicians. And doesn’t it seem like working for Disney just served to prepare Miley & Britney for a career in selling their bodies? And why would their parents consent to this? Oh, right – money. Enough money to buy your daughter’s integrity.
Real women rockers – Anne Wilson, Pat Benetar, Joan Jett, Sinead, Stevie Nicks, Adele – broke barriers by making great music, and are infinitely more beautiful for not objectifying themselves. They don’t need to.
