Miley Cyrus promotes ‘We Can’t Stop’ with her Instagrammed rack: sad?

Miley Cyrus

I feel kind of poorly while writing about Miley Cyrus again during such a short period of time because it seems like I’m piling onto her hopeful cause in such rapid succession. To be certain, Miley doesn’t really need our input at this point because her new comeback single, “We Can’t Stop,” has somehow reached #1 on iTunes even though it’s a rather monotonous and awful song. Still, Miley feels like she needs some help, which is why she’s been strategically not singing about dancing with Molly and hitting her Instagram page pretty damn hard. This is how Miley has been promoting “We Can’t Stop” on Instagram — with no subtle measure and with quite obvious photos of her booty (shown above) plus rackage and nothing else:

Boobs sell music? I guess these photos prove as much. This is not to mention Miley’s Borat-monokini pics to promote the single itself, which arrive after her own declaration that she doesn’t need to sell sex to sell music and her own star power … even though booty crack is fair game. I just want Miley to settle down, take a few years off, and record a lovely country album, but at least we’re not talking about Liam Hemsworth anymore, right? Of course, I’m not talking about Amanda Bynes’ recent declaration that she’s gonna get Liam all to herself because — let’s face it — that’s one ridiculous proposition.

    No, this is how the kids do it nowadays, promote with sexy pictures. Look at Rihanna or Gaga

  2. stormy weather says:

    That song is awful.

  3. Buckwild says:

    Well it worked, you wrote a post about it so everyone is reminded again of her new song.

    I’m just glad she didn’t get p*rny fake boobs, her body looks smashing right now.

  4. marie says:

    it’s #1 cause people keep talking about it, plus with the lyrics people will download to hear it..

    she has a fantastic body, but these are try-hard and come off as desperate. girl, stop it..

  5. SmokeyBlues says:

    I would probably act the same way if I was as young as her and was declared “sexiest bod” or whatever it was recently. And she does look fabulous. I don’t feel bad for her. Other than her wacky relationship everything is going quite well for Miley, whether you like her music or not.

    • Spooks says:

      Out of the Disney bunch, I always liked her the most, don’t really know why. Demi is so meh, and Selena is so incredibly annoying. I hope things go well for Miley.
      She does look great, but her Adam’s apple is quite large in the first photo.

    • paige says:

      actually since she hired b spears old manager she has been EVERYWHERE…i wonder how much the #1 spot on maxims list cost?? her body is OK-she’s the right weight….but the weird shoulder thing- is that bad posture? she dresses to impress but seems lost and DESPERATE. just wearing reveling clothes doesn’t make you sexy….she said ‘the music would shut us up’, but it just kinda sucks….at least she got those teeth and gums fixed….now if she would put her tongue back in her mouth….

  6. kiddo says:

    The third one is a beautiful photograph that is nicely composed, and not at all salacious. I’m not a follower of her music, but I don’t understand all the criticism of everything she does. She seems relatively genuine and free-spirited.

    I find the Kardashians, regardless of the images, much more offensive.

    • gogoGorilla says:


      I like Miley (although I’ve never listened to one of her songs so I can’t speak to her singing ability or lack thereof). I think she is a very pretty girl and in awesome shape. I love that she is doing her own thing. I just wish she didn’t feel compelled to follow the sex-tart route. I guess it’s “the thing” to do to get attention on social media. Unfortunate, though.

    • blaize says:

      I agree. I don’t see why she gets so much criticism for the harmless things she does, especially when so many others do the same. If Madonna, Christina, Rihana, Pink, and Lady Gaga can be wild, why can’t Miley? And she’s nicer than a lot of those girls I just named, so I don’t see why she’s the one out of this goup who everybody has decied is ‘headed for trouble’. Why was their wildness accepted while Miley’s is portrayed as ‘problematic’ and assumed to mean that she ‘has issues,’ is a ‘trainwreck’, and is ‘the next Lindsay Lohan’? She smokes weed, does whatever she wants with her physical appearance, and is active on twitter. What’s the big deal? None of that sounds destructive or abnormal.

    • Irishae says:

      Most of the Miley-bashing has to do with people being embarrassed for her. The comments that find her antics tiring are more from a place of frustration than contempt, I believe. Lady Gaga, Rhianna, Christina, etc. have always been “wild” and we’re used to their crap. Although it’s natural to try on different hats at her age, when you see her shift from Hanna Montana, to country, to rock, to reggae/club/pop with no irony whatsoever, it is kinda silly. That’s my hypothesis.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I agree, I am embarassed for her. If you’re hot, you’re hot. There isnt a need to BEG for people to notice it. I find shots like this to be too desperate. It makes me feel like she must be feeling bad about herself if she has to literally grovel. (And for the record, I feel bad for Rhianna when she does it too. It reflects a poor self esteem when you go too far).

        Definition of grovel:

        1: to creep with the face to the ground : crawl

        2 a: to lie or creep with the body prostrate in token of subservience or abasement
        b: to abase oneself

        3 : to give oneself over to what is base or unworthy

        Here is the picture I am talking about:

  7. sarah says:

    If I had her body, I’d be showing it off as possible

  8. Mia 4S says:

    Well of course, she has to promote it somehow! It’s not like the music is any good and could stand on it’s own. She’s not Adele.

    I have to laugh at the #1 on ITunes thing; people, it’s not that hard! Music has changed and it takes surprisingly small numbers to rule ITunes. That’s piling on though, I’ll leave it alone.

    • C. C. Cedras says:

      Yep on the iTunes comment. Maybe she’s pulling a LeAnn and buying 1000s of her own release…cheap and she wouldn’t even feel the ka-ching.

    • TheOneAndOnly says:

      Great comment all and Mia 4s; miley and her handlers confuse social media exploitation with talent and popularity; I wonder if many young people realize how big many bands of the 60s/70s were without music vids and social media wrap around marketing; This is unfair but led zeppelin consistently played live 3-4 hour shows before stadium crowds of 50 to 80 thousand fans – Miley and her cohorts have so many blowing smoke up their arse they don’t realize how small potatoes they are – even Madonna in the 90s played to huge crowds 50 – 100,000. Imagine miley doing that.

  9. Itsjustblanche. says:

    Well bless her heart.

      • Jamie says:

        Oh yes, bless her little heart…

        Love talking in Southern–thats what we do! Save a little grace and not say anything bad

      • MojoRising says:

        The Story of a Real Southern Belle (to be read in a deep southern drawl)

        Two Belle’s sitting out on the front porch.

        Belle 1: Did you know that my papa just bought me the most beautiful Arabian horse to go in the most beautiful stables you have ever seen?

        Belle 2: Really? How nice.

        Belle 1: Why, yes. He also just acquired for me all that land over yonder as far as your eye can see.

        Belle 2: Oh, how nice.

        Belle 1: Yes. My papa just loves me so. What has your papa done for you?

        Belle 2: He sent me to charm school.

        Belle 1: Ha. Charm school! What ever for?

        Belle 2: So that I could learn how to say “How nice” instead of “F*ck you”.

        And THAT is how it’s done in the south.

  10. bns says:

    The second-hand embarrassment I’m feeling is not okay.

  11. Mei says:

    She looks so good! Dying. Hell I’d probably do the same.

  12. Tessa says:

    I absolutely loathe her style. It’s so cheap and tacky. There’s a way to be sexy without seeming dirty and desperate. I find her whole display lately to be gross. Like who legitimately finds this hot? It’s so try hard.

    • Spooks says:

      I don’t understand why all these girls who were child actors think that the only way to be percieved as a grown up is to sex up their image. Miley, Selena, even Emma Watson, although she’s smart enough to pose as her character so that she keeps her good girl image.
      If they took up some challenging roles, or get involved in something vaguely political, or talk about something important, then I would think of them as grown up.

    • Liv says:

      I think Lainey nailed it. This is exactly what happens to her.

      “They have to represent those institutionalised ideals we continue to force on our girls, regardless of whether or not that’s actually who they are. When they decide it’s not who they are, the only thing they think they can be is the exact opposite…which might not be entirely authentic either. Sometimes it takes them another 10 years to figure it out, if they ever do.”

    • blaize says:

      Most of my generation really isn’t that interested in politics, so it’s not suprising at all to me that Miley, Selena, and Emma aren’t taking the political route.

      And it’s interesting to me how when older singers and actresses- think Lady Gaga, Rihana, Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie, and many, many others- wear sexy clothes or take on a sexy role, it’s accepted. But if Miley, Selena, or Emma do it, it’s portrayed as a bad thing- “Why does she feel that she has to do this to prove that she’s grown up? It’s SOOOO sad.” Why can’t these younger women be free to wear whatever they want and take on the same kinds of roles that the others have? Just because they’re former child stars doesn’t mean that they should be expected to remain as innocent and asexual at 21 as they were at 13.

      • Spooks says:

        I’m younger than Miley and very interested in politics and the world around me. But that’s just me then.

        I don’t think that the problem is that they are sexy. The problem is why they are sexy. It seems like a pattern most former child stars use in order to seem adult. And it also seems like that is the only thing they’re about. Being sexy and singing about partying. And the people you mentioned aren’t good artist either (Angelina maybe). Just style, no substance.

      • ncboudicca says:

        I don’t have any trouble taking Emma Watson seriously. Smart girl, going back to finish up her degree at Brown later this year. It would be nice if that was more of the trend for child actors and actresses – take a few years off, get out of the limelight and go to school or just travel the world or anything that would help them grow as people. If anything I would think that would make casting directors more interested in being the first to cast them in their first major “adult” role or whatever.

        Even adult actors can re-make themselves that way. Look at Angelina Jolie – perceived as a weird slut when she was with Billy Bob, then morphs into a Supermom concerned with global child poverty.

      • blaize says:

        So then give them time to grow. They’re 20 and 21 now. They have the whole rest of their lives to be serious and sophisticated- why can’t one’s late teens and early 20′s be about adventure, exploration, and having fun?

      • Spooks says:

        They’re neither exploring nor having fun. They are using their sexuality for marketing.

      • Bijlee says:

        @blaize for those that can afford to party, adventure, and explore in their late teens and early 20s by all means go ahead. But some of us are trying to work and do well in order to be able to graduate and find work to support our families so we can’t really afford all that adventure, exploration, and fun. Yeah I”m probably going to be pretty judgemental because to me it seems like such a waste. It’s a privileged thing to be able to do what she does. I’m not interested in praising her for it or saying “You know that’s what youngins do!” because no its really not.

      • blaize says:

        @Spooks: How do you know they’re not having fun and exploring? How do you know that they- like many other women- don’t happen to like sexy clothes? I’m not denying that celebrities use sex appeal, (which I don’t necessarily see as a bad thing. Why not treat sexuality and the human body like a more normal, natural aspect of life) but we shouldn’t assume that they’re not ALSO having fun and exploring.

      • Spooks says:

        I didn’t express myself right. Maybe they are having fun. But, they are also using it for marketing.
        Also, I don’t think celebrities use sex appeal as a normal aspect of life, they’re selling their sex appeal. And that’s just sad.
        And this whole discussion wasn’t about whether or not it is a good thing to use sexuality, but about the fact that they seem to think that the only way to show the world you’re grown up is to show them you’re sexy. Not smart, not opinionated. Just sexy.

  13. virginia5 says:

    notice how the majority of comments on articles on miley cyrus is about her body and not her music, clearly her “talent” as a singer is no longer important.

  14. Anahnemus says:

    I cannot believe anyone hasn’t noticed the Rihanna copycatting. She is riding her look hard. Please tell me I am not the only one that is seeing this!

  15. Anmelt says:

    Man, if I were her age and had that figure I would probably do the same. I would see it as foolish years later but man, she is just at that stage in life.

  16. MissMoody says:

    I’m pretty sure Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” is back at #1 again. She’s #2 and that’s still good but first place didn’t last long so I guess bring forth the boobs..?…

  17. Bopit says:

    We get it… your body is insane, your new music is some ground-breaking and deep sh*t, and you are super fantastically engaged and in love y’all.

  18. MojoRising says:

    This is the stuff that immature girls do to get back the attention of a boy. It doesn’t work, but that’s it. She’s desperate for Liam’s attention.

  19. Marty says:

    Well now that Liam Hemsworth has joined Twitter I’m sure all the drama will be kicking up a notch. I think they both thrive off of it, tbh.

  20. Glaughy says:

    Eh, I kind of dig her style. It’s kind of American Apparel/ hipster 90′s. I’m not mad at the instagram pics, her body is outstanding and lots of popstars post raunchy pics to promote their stuff.

    I’m offended however at how awful that track is. It should’ve been hidden at the very end at her album as a filler, if anything.

  21. Nerd Alert says:

    Yesterday I didn’t dislike Miley, just Miley’s music. For some reason, I’m starting to dislike Miley herself a little today.

  22. LouLou says:

    In that very top photo of her from the back, she looks like Justin Beiber.

  23. Elizabeth says:

    The song is horrible! How did it reach #1? I’m over 30 so I guess I just don’t understand music anymore :-( But I will admit Miley’s body is amazing and her breasts look real.

  24. diva says:

    I get that sex sells but she’s not sexy so it comes off very desperate. This whole trying to act line she’s Harbor thing is ridiculous. She looks silly.

  25. Lisa says:

    Her music is shit, but if you’ve got a body like that, flaunt it!

  26. BooBooLaRue says:

    She’s young! Of course her bod can be great! Why I wish I had worn that little red bikini the ENTIRE year I was 23 and hot. BIG SIGH.

  27. Itsa Reallyme says:

    She needs to walk away from the music industry and follow her real passion…..making porn. If you want people to take you seriously and you actually have talent, you don’t need to constantly remind people that you have boobs and a nice arse. It’s a shame her parents didn’t bother to instill some values in their children.

    • blaize says:

      Easy there. You’re on the border of intolerant slut-shaming righty territory. Just because someone doesn’t conform to your old-fashioned values doesn’t mean that they have no values at all.

      And as for the whole “if you actually have any talent, you don’t need to show skin” comment, then how do you explain Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, and Mariah Carey? They all have talent, but they all have worn revealing clothes, posed topless, or posed nude Could it be that it’s more about personal choice than talent?

      • Itsa Reallyme says:

        I’m about as far from right wing territory as you can get. I’m also far from old fashioned.
        I am slut intolerant though. You do have that correct. I believe that if you act with class and dignity, you will be respected. If you stoop to vulgar behavior then don’t set your expectations too high.
        I see this over-sexed behavior while trying to sell a product about the same as those athletes that cheat and trash talk. If you have the talent, you don’t have to resort to the nasty stuff.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        What is “classy” and “dignified” about referring to another woman as a prostitute because of her clothing choices?

      • buckley says:

        Old Fashioned?
        Having class is timeless.

      • blaize says:

        The belief that the only or primary thing that determines whether or not a woman has values, dignity, and is respectable is old-fashioned, regressive, and reductive- it goes back to our ancient idea that a woman’s ‘sexual purity’ determines her human worth, that a woman must dress ‘modestly’, and that the human body is to scandalous for public consumption. Women who rebel against this sexually repressive dogma are always labeled sluts, whores, and tramps. Slut-shaming, whether you admit it or not (which you probably won’t. Bigots usually don’t admit that their bigots, but that’s ok) is a form of bullying- and it just leads to more bullying, which leads to depression and suicide. Not only that, but Slut-shaming affects the way people look at rape. And many women have suffered and died because of this ideology. So if you want to be backward and bigoted, and ally yourself with rape-apologists and be a bully, that’s fine. Just don’t try to lecture anyone else about class and dignity. That’s hypocrisy.

    • Bijlee says:

      Holy crap! There’s no need for this! I mean yeah I think what’s she’s doing is stupid, but she’s not a porn star or on the path to becoming one.

  28. kim says:

    She bought her #1 status on iTunes is my guess lol no one takes her serious. She could cure cancer and we’d pat her on the head and say thata girl sure u did…

  29. Kelly says:

    I wish she would stop. She’s awful. Why must she go the “slut” route? The song is crap.

  30. Stacia says:

    She’s trying to hard to be a sexed up pop tart. I think she should also do country songs, since thats were her roots are and stop with all the skanky, booty and bits pics to try to sell her music.

  31. the original liv says:

    Is she #1 though? Cause yesterday and today, the #1 song is blurred lines by Alan Thicke, not Miley

  32. Butch says:

    She’s a teenager GAWD! I think she looks cute. And the second to last picture is a great retro nod to Madonna. So what if her dress is a bit revealing. I’ve seen less at the grocery or LAX.
    As a funny LA story. I met Parker Stevenson in the Ralphs this morning. Two days ago I watched an original Hardy Boys show. I was 10 the last time I’d seen the show. And Shaun Cassidy isn’t dead like I thought.

  33. Jade says:

    She has a very nice body, she just likes showing off what she has worked hard for although it comes off as trying too hard and tacky most times. Anyway if making erh somewhat bad music keeps her busy and self esteem somewhat ok, I’ll give her a pass. Some people just need something to go on with, jus sayin.

  34. Happy21 says:

    Her body IS insane. However, I am so over her, I just can’t anymore…((sigh)). This is coming from a Miley defender and someone who actually once thought she was cute and down to earth…uh ya, not too sure what the hell I was thinking…

  35. Apple says:

    She can have abs of steel all she wants. She is and will always be a butter face.

  36. Lulu says:

    All of the sexy pics are for Liam methinks. “Look at what you are missing…”

  37. Dedrie says:

    The person that you see taking lots of scandalous pictures is the real Miley, the real her. You don’t have to like the real Miley, just note that she’s free from acting nice and good.. and immediately sucked into the delusional Hollywood fame and expose myself for your jealous pleasure..whatever she does without.. starving and painfully neglects.. over exercises .. for the stupid launch of I am a super hot tramp that does any old thang without shame.. before she goes downhill..

    • blaize says:

      A person has the right to wear whatever they want, and you can’t determine by a person’s clothes how many people they’ve slept with or whether or not they will sleep with anybody.

      I know that some people are about ‘ye old sexual purity’, and because of that, you feel the need to scream ‘slut’, ‘whore’, or ‘tramp’ whenever you see a woman dressing or behaving in a way that transgresses that archaic myth, but that’s no excuse to go scarlet-lettering people like some puritanical extremist. This is the 21st century, not the 12th or even the 1950′s. Let’s leave the bigotry of slut-shaming in our intolerant past, along with racism and homophobia.

  38. Ming says:

    Yes, her body looks fantastic, but daaamn she sure comes across as a thirsty, try hard biotch.
    Of course she’s riding rihannas style. Fashion is cyclical, but still.. She’s not doing anything new or groundbreaking with her outfit choices.

  39. Kate says:

    Anything she does, doesnt change the fact that she can’t sing.

  40. TOPgirl says:

    Seems like she’s having an Amanda bynes moment where she’s going a little craazzzaayy!

  41. Anais says:

    I am pro-miley, but this is getting really annoying.

    … and I can’t help but think how much cuter her whole style transformation would be with a different hairstyle.
