I'm sure there are some other girls that would disagree with you.
In that case they're probably in denial.

I'm not sure why but I feel physically sick every time she sticks out her prehensile tongue in an juvenile attempt to look lascivious. She could swing through tree branches by that thing.

Re: Anyone else sick of Miley Cyrus?

I think she's a sweetheart, I think she's intelligent, and she does have a good voice. Right now she's young, she has star power, and she's trying to get away from a previous career where she was under the thumb of a rather draconian media corporation.

Apparently it's not as restrictive as Disney is with their younger talent.

Kelly Clarkson and Avril Lavigne, among others, might beg to differ.

Re: Anyone else sick of Miley Cyrus?

I only know who Miley Cyrus is because people complain about her all the time. It's the same with Justin Beiber. I have no idea what any of his music sounds like, but in EVERY YouTube comment section his popularity is being bitched about. If people ignored these two, they'd go away faster.

Just ignore them, period. It's pretty much a choice to "read" about them. Change the channel, close the window or flip the page.

Re: Anyone else sick of Miley Cyrus?

I don't much like her current image and I've never been a fan of hers anyway, but I do want to point out that she does have talent. For example, listen to this cover of the song "Lilac Wine."

I'm not saying it's good, especially from our perspective, I'm just saying it's apparently less restrictive. Disney controls the hell out of your image when you're one of their teen stars. You are squeaky clean and sweet, and perfect, as long as you're under their thumb. Miley seems to like where she is now, and where she's going, so as long as it's what she wants, and she can live with it, then it's better than what she had before.

Re: Anyone else sick of Miley Cyrus?

Miley is doing just fine. I am not a fan but she knows what she is doing and it works. I will say one doesn't have to go to extremes to be successful. Taylor Swift for example. I know people bring up her dating history but she is a 23 year old woman and she hasn't had more relationships than other women her age and probably younger. Her music is fun, her personality is sweet and she carries her self more modestly than some of her peers in pop or country music.

That was apparently written with her fiance in mind.


Now that's she's no longer engaged anymore she seems to be venting her sadness

…or her cover of Bob Dylan's "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome when you Go."



Hopefully, if she doesn't end up pissing away her career and talent like Lindsey Lohan (or, to a lesser extent, Christina Aguilara), she'll have a long career as a folk/country artist insofar as that seems to be where her voice really works the best.

She does have real, good, and solid talent. It's a shame she's going through this awkward "child star" years.

I find that Miley, the Kardashians and other celebs don't really impact my life much. Mostly they're the butts of jokes, so I get a laugh or two.
At least Miley actually does stuff besides being a professional celebrity (whatever that is). She has a pretty good voice.
