Miley Cyrus would be wise to go back and view some of her performances in her former TV show “Hannah Montana” and take some lessons on how a young lady should carry herself.
The girl we saw then is definitely not the same person we see today.
The sweet, innocent girl from years ago is now a 20-year-old pop star who has turned her nice girl image into one of a trashy vamp who seems to care more about making some kind of statement about herself.
She is now best known for being scantily clad and performing provocative dance moves, behaviors that make her a rotten role model for young girls.
Most recently, she set another bad example by smoking a joint on stage Sunday in Amsterdam at the MTV Europe Music Awards, along with the trampy dance moves.
Cyrus should be really proud of herself. Smoking a joint in a country where smokers can’t be prosecuted should really enhance her image as one who flaunts her unconventional style.
What kind of message does this send to the millions of her teenage followers?
It tells them that drugs are OK and that flaunting their bodies is how young women can get ahead. Talent alone not enough?
Cyrus should remember those who got her to where she is now. Many of them are the people who remember her as the innocent Hannah Montana.
To add insult to injury, after the incident occurred she tweeted to her fans, “Sometimes in life you just gotta decide to not give AF,” she tweeted Monday after the ceremony.
This is a prime example of someone who learned absolutely nothing from the outcry that followed her earlier behavior.
The worst part is that countless teenagers who follow Cyrus might get the impression that doing drugs and acting out in a sexual manner is OK at that tender age.
That simply isn’t the case, and we hope her young fans don’t follow her lead.
Cyrus has become a horrible role model. She should apologize to her fans about the dangers of drugs and begin ramping down her edgier performances.
She owes that to her younger fans who might draw the wrong conclusions from her actions.
