Sometimes Glazed-editor Nina gets really frustrated by the way people react on certain news items. When this actually happens she goes to her room, sits in a corner for over four hours and just keeps on writing. After having written thousands of pages she cuts them up into one page filled with straight from the heart-words. These ones are the words placed over here. This time it’s all about the internet vs. Miley Cyrus.
After seeing the new video for ‘Wrecking Ball’ by the talented Miley Cyrus it felt like everyone on the internet had a voice. While she was already being hated on for her VMA performance, there was even more hate spreading around after the Terry Richardson collaboration was released. With hurtful comments posted under the video (going as far as saying that Miley wasn’t raised right or claiming Billy Ray is a bad parent to just lame reproaches like claiming Cyrus is a slut), people just don’t seem to get enough of demonizing the twenty year old pop princess. But why I ask you?
What does Miley do that makes it okay to treat her like a bad person? Exactly: nothing. What is seen from the ‘Wrecking Ball’ video is a hurt adolescent. A girl struggling to maintain a solid relationship with the man she truly loves and cares about while being naked on a wrecking ball. Is that a crime?
Sure, you might think it isn’t appropriate for Miley to do such a thing, but that doesn’t mean she’s a criminal nor a bad person. It doesn’t make it okay to insult her or to propagate your standards in a way that reflects badly on the singer. She hasn’t really done anything wrong. This is just Miley’s life and she should be able to make her own decisions. That’s the only thing she is carrying out right now. Even if you like it or not.
I’m not going to be the person saying that you should stop calling her a ‘slut’ or a ‘whore’. You should do what you feel is good in your heart, but please for a minute think about what I’m telling you here. And deeply think about how you would feel if you were in Miley’s shoes. It isn’t that easy to post hateful comments anymore, now is it?
