Miley Cyrus stirs debate

Miley Cyrus performing in concert.
With her new movie The Last Song opening in theaters this week, there is a bit of controversy over Miley Cyrus. There are conflicting reports that she may be giving up music for good, whereas others are simply saying that she is giving up Hannah Montana. There are many opinions as to which story is correct but we all know that, in Hollywood especially, giving up things doesn’t always mean forever.
After becoming the idol of young girls everywhere as Hannah, she is trying to break out of being typecast and moving on to new “adult” roles. Of course, you all know this if you haven’t been living on, say, Neptune.
But what was of particular interest was the amount of people that profess to hate Ms. Cyrus. If you read the articles there are many that comment on them and some people have a lot of venom towards her. Obviously she is not Meryl Streep, Barbara Streisand, or Judy Garland, but these people seem to miss the point. What is wrong with young ladies everywhere liking Hannah Montana? It’s not Shakespearean artistry, but it is not meant to be – it is good, clean fun for them. The Hannah Montana Movie was good, as long as you didn’t go in expecting To Kill a Mockingbird. Her songs have catchy hooks that stick in your head even if you don’t care for them. It’s interesting to note that The Climb held the #1 spot on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Chart for 15 straight weeks.  Here is the scene of Miley singing it in the movie.
The rants of these people reek of jealousy of a teenager that could buy and sell most of them without breaking a sweat. The thing about art and artists is that you don’t appeal to everyone. When Igor Stravinsky premiered “The Rite of Spring” – now an incredibly famous ballet – there were riots, and the theatre almost burned down.
It comes down to one simple thing – if you don’t like it, don’t listen/watch/read about it.

    Miley seems to be going thru a transition period moving from teenager to adult which means she will be trying to find her niche in the adult entertainment world. Who knows how that may turn out. Hopefully, it will be positive as both she and her fans mature.
