Lady Gaga says we all need to ‘lighten up’ & leave Miley Cyrus’ art alone

Miley Cyrus

Sigh. Miley Cyrus and Terry Richardson have now racked up 72 million views for their very deep, vulnerable “Wrecking Ball” video. I still wonder how Miley will top her nudity routine in the future. Anything she does in future videos will seem “boring” because she’s got very little going on otherwise. So it makes sense that she’ll soon be appearing in her own MTV documentary.

That isn’t to say that Miley is not without her defenders. Most people are shaking their heads, but Lady Gaga is expressing support even though Miley out-stunt-queened her at the VMAs. Gaga says to leave Miley’s art alooooone: “I mean, I just think everybody need to lighten up and leave her alone. Because it’s pop music. Everybody’s entitled to their own artistic expression, and if you have a problem with it, just change the channel.” Art.

Lady Gaga

* Meanwhile, Miley is still doing suggestive things with a foam finger. She went on a UK talk show where she sucked on her favorite prop and then slapped the bottom of a twerking little person.

* Miley continues to fake-hate the paparazzi. She wrapped her head up in a virtual shroud while doing a pap walk. It looks ridiculous because you know she loves it. Those photos are here.

* Liam Hemsworth’s rep denies the story about Liam continuing to bang/sext January Jones, calling this “tabloid fiction.”

* Billy Ray is still standing up for his little girl: “It wouldn’t have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt … a Tux … or a nun’s habit. The song’s a smash … and her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God given talent.” Too bad Miley wasted all that talent with her attention-grabbing antics.

    Ok I can be understanding enough to understand a person expressing his or herself individually through a medium is “art”, but, is THIS the “art” our culture needs to occupy itself with???


    • skyler1 says:

      She probably thinks Miley and her desperate attempts at being edgy will only make herself (gaga) look better by comparison.

    • Welldun says:

      I looked up art (I’m not an arty type so needed a reference,) and came away with, minimally, self-expression. Ok, so using that standard she is an artist. Also by that standard when I dance around the house I’m an artist. I feel a little better now lol.

      I think she’s more of a marketer than an artist though and I wonder how much couch time she spent with Uncle Terry, so gross.

    • i says:

      Couldn’t leaving Miley alone behoove Lady Gaga?
      If she sounds blasé about Miley’s antics wouldn’t that mind-control her monster morons to listen to her.
      Gaga is so derivative in every context.
      She and Franco should hook up

      • Barbara says:

        She actually has been having a fling with her record producer. He is the guy wearing her picture on his t-shirt and big chains in above photo. And he also was at the filming of her video on the ball. Go to his Facebook page and you can see them all cosey together

    • Itsa Reallyme says:

      Yes. And “art” is subjective, meaning we all get to form our own opinions and discuss them. If she doesn’t want people to talk about her or have opinions, then she’s in the wrong business.

    • Nina W says:

      I see nothing artistic in what Miley is doing. Pandering and exhibitionism do not equal art or artistic expression. Just because Gaga calls it “art” does not elevate it from the realm of marketing and self-promotion.

  3. RocketMerry says:

    Sigh. Oh, Miley.

  4. Alexandra says:

    I wish both Miley and Gaga would leave US alone!!!

  5. Amanda says:

    Hmm. For once I completely agree with Lady Gaga.

    • Kcaia says:

      I was about to say the same thing. Its just crazy how seriously angry and annoyed sooo many people are with Miley. I mean, who is she hurting? Who cares if she wants to be wild and controversial or if she wants our attention? If she embarrasses herself she embarrasses HERSELF. The amazing thing about humans is that we each have a unique thought process and ideas and it takes our own special, unique experiences to find out who we are in life.

      I know nobody wants to hear this, but its completely true. The only reason one would even let a harmless celebrity (or really anybody) get so under their skin that they rudely make fun of them and just talk(or type) bad about that person is because there is something inside themselves or their own lives that they aren’t happy with, and it makes those people feel better about themselves to put others down. Ultimately, we all have the choice to make our own lives better or just to do nothing and criticize other peoples’ decisions instead.

      • Lucinda says:

        This right here. Plus, people are talking more about her right now than they have in YEARS. In her industry, that is success.

      • hateonit. says:

        Actually,in no way am I unhappy with myself or my life…I’m actually extremely happy. That being said she’s useless. I don’t like her because shes offensive,disgusting,ugly and has mediocre if any at all talent. Shes overexposed and doesn’t deserve all the attention she’s getting. She’s not an artist. She’s an entertainer and a performer,you know, like a clown. I can’t stand the fact that creatures like her exist and exploit everything. People with dignity,self respect and actually do worthwhile things like save lives or teach children don’t even get paid half as much as she does to gyrate her flabby pancake ass against a married mans package. And THAT is why I can’t stand the child.

      • Lucky says:

        I am subscribing to the “it takes all kinds” school with this. Would I let my daughter so what she is doing? No. Would I let me daughter watch what she is doing? No. And, if all singers were Adele then Adele wouldn’t be the amazing talent and woman she is- with the good comes that bad- you wouldn’t taste sweetness if there was no bitter, or something. Like that… In the wise words of my mother, if you don’t like it, ignore it an most likely it will go away.

      • Kcaia says:


        Hateonit-i don’t mean it to personally offend anyone, but I used to think I was happy, and felt similar to you. But I wasn’t fully happy and I wasn’t exactly who I wanted to be, and I truly believe that when a person makes the life decision to be happy, it is by the way of doing and being the best person they can be, and in doing so, one just won’t really care so much about someone like Miley, or at least not in a bad way. You will instinctively start appreciating life and others in a way that is anything but negative. If anything you will root for people like Miley TO BE HAPPY.
        And this is all so simple that everyone thinks its too hard, but when you make the choices to be the best person you can be, despite what others think, say or do, your life will change without barely an effort in ways you would never imagine. For example, when I did, I lost 40 pounds and stopped biting my nails without even trying. You will realize you are capable of anything. And sometimes in life if you want to do or be something, but its yet to come natural, you just have to fake it UNTIL you make it.
        If Im wrong about this, I am at least right that this is what it took to find my own personal happiness.

      • yoyo says:

        agreed, don’t know why people are taking all of this so seriously you’d think she just willfully killed a cute furry animal.

        She is so insignificant and she’s not doing anything that Madonna or Lady Gaga or others have done before: acting like idiots in their underwear for millions to see.

        At least she can sing some of her songs are catchy others are rubbish…meh par for the course.

        People need to dial it back on the Miley hate it’s getting way too serious.

      • Shannon says:

        Hateonit: PREACH

      • Annie says:

        “The only reason one would even let a harmless celebrity (or really anybody) get so under their skin that they rudely make fun of them and just talk(or type) bad about that person is because there is something inside themselves or their own lives that they aren’t happy with”

        There’s a big difference between letting someone “get to you” and simply pointing out what elements of that person’s behaviour you don’t like and why. Just cause you are happy does not mean you have to go about pretending the world is all kittens are roses – are rape and war just “people finding out who they are in life”? Perhaps so, but that doesn’t make it right. I agree both Miley and Gaga are basically harmless but yes they can be poor role models at times, Gaga especially is capable of being hypocritical and dishonest.

      • Kcaia says:

        Annie, Im not talking about just expressing dislike. You can be a positive person and still hold people accountable for their actions and still disagree with people. Its in how you do it. Just because you are positive doesn’t make you a prude. For example, I still love Tupac and Biggie and all the same music I always loved. Its not like I listen to gospel now. I still know how to have fun.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        @Annie: Yes, but some pop star’s fashion and dance moves are FAR from rape and war.

        Which is exactly why I think that all of the outrage, bigotry, and hate that has occurred over the fashion choices and dance moves of Miley Cyrus over the past 2 years or so is ridiculous. As long as a person’s clothing does not promote homophobia, racism, or other forms of human hatred, I’m pretty sure most of us would agree that clothing and dance moves are harmless matters of personal choice. In the 21st century, should the way someone dresses, the ways they move their body, or the photoshoots they do really be enough to cause people to break out their ‘torches and pitchforks’ and decide to hate the girl?

    • Adrien says:

      Amanda, Lady GAga had given sound opinions on many issues before and this is the one you completely agreed on?

      • Amanda says:

        Haha! I can’t believe this even needs to be said. Lady Gaga has all sorts of useless, moronic opinions about all manner of things.

  6. Tammy says:

    I like the video for Wrecking Ball. And I like the song. People do need to leave her alone. Don’t like her, don’t watch her. I know this celebitchy but please, she is 20 years old. Leave it alone already. Who is she hurting by her antics?

    • teehee says:

      Nobody, but it seems the music industry itself is going down the drain when this is what the consider talent: antics.

    • paige says:

      i am hurt everytime i have to see her face…
      it is disturbing. i try to avoid it because it is painful….maybe i should avoid all social media for about 15 mins. until the air clears??…
      larry rudolph proving he can do it even with a pig’s ear…

    • Eleonor says:

      I am not disturbed, I am embarassed for her, because she is embarassing: it’s not like she is funny like Gaga at the beginning, she doesn’t have real issues or the sex appeal like Rihanna; she is not expressing herself like Madonna.
      She is doing all of this to get attention (Larry Rudolph is a freaking pr genious seriously) she is succeeding but I find -and I am not the only one- all of this very sad.
      She was a decent country singer, but she has chosen the horny girl one.
      If you have to fake a fellatio every five minutes you are desperate.

      • Lucinda says:

        Madonna has ALWAYS been about attention, not “expressing” herself. If that were true, she wouldn’t be dressing like she’s in her 20’s instead of her 50’s. She is the poster child for shock value.

    • emmie_a says:

      ‘Don’t like her, don’t watch her’ or change the channel, etc…

      Why do people use this as a response to criticism?? It’s the biggest ‘duh’ comment and not a good comeback… Yes, I know I don’t have to watch it but I can still have an opinion about what I saw or heard.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:


        Attention is almost always a combination of criticism and adoration-you don’t get to separate the two.

        If you want to be “left alone” then get your annoying ass out of the spotlight. Go live on a f*cking farm in Idaho, Miley, no one’s stopping you.

      • Bijlee says:

        @TOK she would enjoy a f-king farm. Lets send her to a potato one…actually I don’t want her touching my potatoes, ughhhh she would do things with them! Gross. never mind! Need to go soak my brain in bleach.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @Biljee-the vision of her licking a potato is one I did not need!

    • Kcaia says:

      +100 tammy

  7. Ellecommelejour says:

    I feel sad for her. She is lost in her very own word.

  8. Eleonor says:

    “People should leave MIley alone, and care about ME for example”. That was the real thought of Lady Gaga, who’s smart enough to lick Miley’s ass.

  9. Lucy says:

    Her face looks EXACTLY the same as it did when she was Hannah Montana on Disney. It’s kinda creeping me out. And Billy Ray should get his facts straight. The song’s a smash because of Mozella, the girl who wrote it!!!!

    • Bee says:

      People seriously need to calm down about Miley. I’ve actually started feeling sorry for her after all the criticism hurled at her, especially by women. How about we go after the entire industry that enables and supports the over-sexualization of female bodies? Instead of policing Miley and her sexuality, maybe we should criticize the patriarchal culture that produces and promotes such behavior, and not be part of the slut-shaming economy!

      • Nina W says:

        How is Miley’s stripping down to the buff overthrowing or challenging the dominant paradigm of patriarchy? Get real, she’s using her sexuality to pander to everyone. She deserves all the criticism she gets. Her routine is stale and recycled.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        @Nina W: Miley Cyrus probably doesn’t know a thing about feminism, so I agree that she’s not about overthrowing the patriarchy. But I don’t think it’s fair how whenever female celebrities go nude or in their underwear, they’re automatically ‘slaves of the patriarchy’ and deserving of whatever criticism they get- even if the criticism is problematic- but when it’s a hot celeb/model guy, it’s ‘omg he’s so hawt!” Not only is that a double standard, but it’s also kind of condescending. I also don’t think she deserves a lot of the criticism she gets- it’s just nudity, fashion, and dance moves, people.

  10. aquarius64 says:

    People tuned into Jersey Shore in droves until that trainwreck got old & was cancelled. In the end they are C-list. Snooki as a contestant for “Dancing with the Stars” is proof of that. Miley makes no money off this circus act because she doesn’t own the music; and when the money stops rolling in the industry will dump her. Looking for her to twerk on DWTS in the future.

    • phaksi says:

      So true. She cant keep this up forever. Hopefully her family havent spent all the Hannah Montana money. Theres no way her tiring antics will be profitable

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      Excellent point Those morons were everywhere for a few years, and now where are they? Absent real talent, people move on. Miley’s too dumb to see this, but I’m sure her pr team is well aware of this fact.

  11. paige says:

    WOW! is that 2 middle fingers shes holding up??
    so badass!

  12. Lia says:

    This is kind of like a skunk saying “stop complaining that the pig stinks….” Gaga’s work often sucks. Of course she would want someone out there who is even worse.

  13. paige says:

    maybe gaga is hoping larry will offer her mega hannah montana bucks to ‘collaborate” with this pop icon??

  14. Justme says:

    Oh Gaga, STFU with your “ARTistic expression” crap. Art is not silly costumes and naked bodies. Both Gaga and Miley are attention-hos and use shock to get attention as they are both insecure they would not stand out otherwise. Both overexposed and both boring. And both your songs in 20 years we wil all be like “oh yeah..I forgot about that song”. And funny how both Gaga and Miley are not the cutest of pop-gals, likely why they REALLY NEED controversy as not easy on the eyes either one of them.

    • coco says:

      im old enough to remember when people said the EXACT same thing about madonna…and she’s in her 50s and still going.

    • Leila in Wunderland says:

      I kind of disagree. To me costumes are art, and I’ve always considered the naked human body to be art, but I get what you’re saying.

  15. JenD says:

    I wonder if the guy she’s taking a picture with is embarrassed to be standing there.

  16. TherapyCranes says:

    I’m sad to say that I kind of agree with Gaga on this one. I didn’t like what Miley did at the VMA’s because the performance felt half-assed. It was a bit of a train wreck and was only popular because of that notion. However I don’t see what is so terrible with the music video or the song. I always thought music videos were supposed to be crazy or different to pull viewers in. Of course a popstar is going to attention whore in their own music video. It’s really not a big deal imo.

    • momofg says:

      I agree with Gaga here. Yes I know this is celebitchy but it is funny how people are so tired of her antics but post everytime they see a Miley topic.

    • Jackson says:

      Same here. And I hate the fact that I agree with Gagaloonie. I am also surprised that so many people act like her music and this video is the most appalling thing going today. Come on, people. Dip your toes into some other music genres or artists out there and MC is utterly TAME in comparison.

  17. Brown says:

    The picture of her in the blue feather coat (hideous) with the bright red lipstick (hideous) staring directly into the camera with her mouth gaping open cracks my shit UP for some reason.

    I have been trying to put my finger on just what it is about her mouth that bothers me so much. It’s not the tongue, it’s not the crooked teeth, nothing like that….. I think it’s that there is something…. corpse-y (??) about it. Not sure if that makes sense. But like how a corpse always has their teeth showing because the skin around the mouth gets pulled away over time.

    I have problems.

  18. Brooke says:

    Sadly all this makes me actually begin to like *shudders* Taylor Swift.

  19. Chelsey says:

    She has reeeeally long middle fingers. Impressive.

  20. TracyMD says:

    She has the longest fingers I’ve ever seen. WTF

  21. MyLeNe - Montreal says:

    I HOPE LIAM have something with JANUARY ! He probably want to speak to somebody wich has not her tongue out all the time .. like a invalide person !

    My english is better and better 😛

  22. Lucybelle says:

    Why are her fingers so long? I’ve never seen such long fingers. Granted, I have stubby little sausage fingers (“Lil Smokies”) but hers look like pencils. So weird.

  23. JudyK says:

    Lady Gaga was drunk from the beginning when she was on w/ Andy Cohen…not surprising, but she was less than impressive and doesn’t seem very bright. Maybe she should keep her opinions to herself.

  24. TOPgirl says:

    Miley should be who and what she wants to be. She’s Young and still finding her niche in the music industry. I think she will just improve with time. Her music is great though and her voice sounds good. But she’s not a good entertainer and that will need to be worked on.

  25. Lynn says:

    I am starting to defend Miley too cause all her antics are not that mind blowing. Lol people are making a big deal over a little booty shake! Lol she is 20yrs old. #teammiley

  26. LaurieH says:

    Sorry, but that’s like a stripper demanding we leave a prostitute’s economics alone.

  27. IceQueen says:

    I’m not a fan of either-Miley or Gaga. But I do agree with Gaga when she says-change the channel if you don’t like it. When Gaga almost f*cked a crucifix in one of her videos, people said it’s outrageous but then quickly moved on. It doesn’t matter if a lot of people are atheists or belong to other religions, it was disrespectful towards somebody’s beliefs and religion. Now Miley takes of her clothes and shakes her a$$ (something that happens in the pop culture all the time-Britney was naked in Womanizer and in Toxic, Katy Perry was naked on a cloud in California Gurls, Alanis Morissette in Thank You, etc, etc, etc)… I don’t get the illogical hatred. Someone said that she’s useless, I think half of the people that are called celebrities are useless. She’s 20, she’s rich and face it-by looking at the videos and not changing the channel you are responsible for her having a huge paycheck.

    • coco says:

      i dont get all the venom towards her either..she’s young. im sure glad i wasnt in the public eye when i was in my 20s being judged by all the self righteous aholes….i would’ve been lynched!

      • trispinII says:

        Yeah, it’s awkward being a (young) adult but performers have walked away, got an education — is Miley going to say “sorry I subjected you to my grotesque tomfoolery — you should NOT have paid for or been in-advertantly exposed to my acting out.”

        Very few people get paid for just “being themselves” (Miley being Miley)– she is simply NOT that compelling. She and GAGA are a sorry example of what we have come to expect from popular entertainment. That we would elevate the output of them and those like them as “Art” is a sad comment.

    • Nina W says:

      I don’t hate Miley and your argument loses a lot of weight when you spray that accusation around. I do find Miley uncreative and boring. I don’t think too much of her “make-over”. And her attention seeking antics are getting old.

  28. Anne De Vries says:

    I actually agree. Not about the art, but about the pile-on situation of LET’S ALL HATE ON MILEY. What she does isn’t any more sexualised or crude than a lot of other things on TV/pop culture (just look at some rap videos) and it feels a lot like the giant hate-on is mainly because it’s Miley Cyrus, AKA The Girl We Saw Grow Up, She’s Practically Our Little Sister, It’s Okay When Anonymous Models Do This Stuff But Not You, You Slut

  29. Timber says:

    Miley should have been offered the role of Ana in 50 Shades of Grey.

  30. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    and she finished the sentence by saying you need to pay attention to ME !!!!

  31. Ginger says:

    I have no issue whatsoever with someone expressing themselves artistically and I do understand that Miley is trying to shed her Disney image. However, I do have an issue with my 11 year old son seeing her writhing around naked on a wrecking ball and licking a sledgehammer. I can’t keep him away from it since he loves music and YouTube, but now I have to have a talk with him about it. Just saying honestly that it bothers me. But I know realistically in this day and age that he’s going to see that and a lot worse more than likely…thanks Internet! I’m really not ready for this but he’s getting older now. (I do block more adult things on his laptop) And with all of Miley’s naked antics, who is actually paying attention to the song? Come on now Miley! You just wanted people talking about you. And the definition of that is not really an artist but a famewhore. Sorry, that’s the truth.

  32. homegrrrrl says:

    I wouldn’t shame a kindergartener’s finger painting, but I will express shock and discomfort over a weird foam finger molestation. I just can’t stop.

    re: MTV documentary…

    Like a bowel Movement??

  34. Dommy Dearest says:

    Can we get rid of Miley and Gaga at the same time? They can go practice their disgusting art elsewhere.

  35. L.E. says:

    “Leave her alone! Over here! Over here! Look at me! Don’t look at Miley! Stop talking about her! Didn’t you see what I wore? Why aren’t you paying attention to me anymore!? Look at MEEEEEE!” – Lady GaGa

    • Adrien says:

      Right. “Change the channel”, huh! People have switched to Miley’s channel. People want to avoid Lady Gaga’s “artpop” by changing the channel to a raunchy but less pretentious former Disney star and here is Lady Gaga making a cameo to Miley’s mayhem. This is her show, people only want to talk about Miley.

  36. Dorothu says:

    Lies. She sounded horrible. There was nothing redeeming whatsoever.

  37. Sunny :) says:

    Haha, there’s LG again, using the term ‘artistic expression’ in the very loosest sense imaginable. According to her, the bowl movements I leave in my toilet are probably my own artistic expression…at least if I use them in an annoyingly attention whorey way.

    As for MC, she can’t have it both ways–she can’t pull nonstop attention-whoring antics, and then expect to be ‘left alone’ from people’s reactions to those antics.

  38. j. says:

    Is Gaga subtly shading Miley? It’s obvs that Gaga sees her own work as high-concept”art,” but in her quote she seems to damn Miley with faint praise… “Oh, it’s just pop music. Just ignore it if you don’t like it.”

  39. O.K. P says:

    Put on some clothes Miley. You look like a crazy person on drugs. I can’t believe once upon a time I adored this kid.

  40. St says:

    Poor Gaga. Her fame and A-list status is just vanishing. She becomes irrelevant. She stopped that crazy promotion with Twitter meltdowns and well.. everyone forgot about her. No one at all noticed her VMA performance. And it was supposed to be some Art.

    She can’t understand that people liked her because she was releasing catchy super hits. And then she stopped. Released that Born this way stuff. And there was not one hit on her last album. There were all annoying songs. But since she was superstar she get away with that. Like Justin Timberlake with his awful new album. But then new album came, same annoying song released again and now no one cares at all.

    The most funny part is that if she would release some super hit them she would be #1 again. But it looks like she has zero hits on her new album. Since she released Applause and it suppose to be biggest hit from it. Which means other are worse. So yeah – this is the end of Gaga. It will be another 2-3 years before she will release another album. But by that time she will be forgotten completely.

    You really have to respect Madonna and even Britney for surviving and still stay relevant, release hit songs for so many years. Christina Aguilera, Jlo – they could not survive. They are still semi relevant because they are judges on those shows. But that is not A-list status they once had in music. They cant’t release hit song anymore.

  41. Shannon says:

    Does anyone else feel like she’s telling us to leave Miley alone because we’re all talkin about Miley, and not her?

  42. Lexi says:

    Miley should keep her clothes on! But i suppose gaga is right!

  43. trispinII says:

    No, no, and no, folks. ENTERTAINERS make money doing what they do. For anyone to be all aw shuks and gee wiz: Miley’s just a kid — NO — she is a PAID entertainer, she’s being outrageously well paid to engage in this nonsense AS IS GAGA!!! If I fell into the catagory of “lil monster” for buying some artless little tramps music — yeah, no. No thanks.

  44. Leila in Wunderland says:

    My problem with Miley Cyrus’s VMA performance was not that she was in a nude bikini, or the suggestive dance moves. I’m ok with that, because I see nothing wrong with mixing sexuality- even overt sexuality- with art, and people have the right to dress and dance however they want.

    My problem with that particular performance was, for one thing, there was NO talent on display- no singing talent, no dancing talent, just some breathless girl running around, shaking her butt, and making faces with a foam finger. It was just comical and amateurish.

    More important than that was the cultural insensitivity of it all. The way she had all black female dancers and the cameras focused on their butts. I’m not saying Miley Cyrus as a person is racist, but that’s not a good way to promote diversity- what she did was Othering, and it was also reductive. It’s in bad taste in light of what two racist politicians recently said about black people.

    So while I agree with Lady Gaga in that I think we should let her wear whatever she wants, do naked photoshoots, and dance however she wants without reacting in slut-shaming, pearl-clutching craziness, the thing we shouldn’t leave her alone about is her treating certain groups of people as accessories or gimmicks.

  45. Katie says:

    People need to stop with the “she is only 20” excuse. I was never this immature at that age…not even when i was 16. It’s called discipline and proper upbringing…and I feel sorry for her that she didn’t get either at home 🙁

    • Leila in Wunderland says:

      I don’t think it’s her upbringing. I think it’s a combination of her age and the industry she’s in. I think the straight-laced young pop star is the exception rather than the rule.

  46. Itsa Reallyme says:

    She has every right to act a fool and walk around wagging her tongue like a dog if she wants to.
    And the public has every right to have an opinion on whether or not they think she has talent or if they think her behavior is disgusting or if they like what she’s wearing.
    I get tired of celebs and pseudo celebs complaining about people having an opinion that they don’t like. You can’t sit back and rake in the cash for doing NOTHING and only have people shower you with compliments and stroke your ego.
    If your main goal in life is “shock factor” then use your brain and realize that at least half the people aren’t going to appreciate it.

      True, but there’s a difference between people expressing their opinions and people expressing bigotry and being just downright hateful.

        Oh But it’s ok for Miley to be culturally insensitive? I don’t think so. And no one here needs to be shamed by you because they have a different opinion about Miley than you do. It’s easy to pass judgement on people passing judgement isn’t it?

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        @Nina W: No, and I’ve criticized her twice on this site because of the cultural insensitivity of her performance.

        Just because I talk about one social justice issue doesn’t mean I can’t discuss any others. There’s nothing wrong with actively trying to make the world a less racist, homophobic, transphobic, body-shaming, slut-shaming, whorephobic, or otherwise less bigoted place through a favorite pastime like celebrity gossip.

    With the way it’s going…singers such as her aren’t too far from having real sexual intercourse and stage…just so they can call that “art” as well and the’ll want it televised on cable.

    Miley needs a good oral surgeon to remake that fish mouth.
