After a jaw dropping MTV music award performance by Miley Cyrus, one would want to believe the Billy Ray (her father) nearly choked to death on his Coors light to the sight of the twerkin’, gyrating and masturbatory VMA performance the former Hannah Montana star shockingly gave. This story crossed over to Hip-hop because of the Smith family’s slack jawed response to her freakishness on stage and the way she surrounded herself with a Hip-hop vibe during her performance.
MTV is partially to blame for the way they marketed the awards show, however the onus is on the performers to respect their fan base. When so-called role models who are extremely popular with a kid heavy fan base exhibit foul and unwelcome expressive displays to promote their musical accomplishments, they are in essence enabling the young minds to believe trashy is sexy, and freaky is cool. In fact, the whorish on stage antics of Miley Cyrus reaffirms why some men degrade women.
A grimy caveat to this story, Miley Cyrus truly didn’t have to wear “coochie cutter” spanky pants that didn’t even cover her tiny little bird booty. Lewd, lusty and offensive are a few words that describe the nature of her performance. Parents beware and protect the sanctity of your little girl’s virtue and honor, because it is clear to see that self-respect begins and ends at home and not from diluted street mentalities. It is a necessity to be diligent and consistently express the differences between beauty and “skankiness” and to provide an explanation of how Miley presented herself in her award show performance degraded women of all ages.
