Miley Cyrus has cut her hair, spiked it, worn it straight, dyed it blonde, shaved the sides, and now has dyed it brown in a trend that is ultimately reminiscent of Madonna’s hair styles during the 80s. When child stars grow up and become controversial adults with sexually-drenched lyrics, posing nude and licking objects, most parents are concerned how that behavior will influence their own highly impressionable children. One area where it is clear Miley’s band of happy followers are proving their devotion is in their hair.
If one wants to see Miley Cyrus’ utterly devoted fans, all that needs to be done is to log on to the official Miley Cyrus Twitter or Facebook page. It’s nearly astonishing how many young girls have taken razors to their long flowing locks, broken into a bottle of peroxide and recreated Cyrus’ style and look for themselves. While it isn’t uncommon for children to dress like their idols; it can become alarming if a child begins to lose touch with who they were to taken on the persona of another person.
While not all of Miley Cyrus’ fans do this; plenty do, and at times it can be scary. It is common for celebrities to set standards in the fashion industry. One can look to the “Farrah” hair styles of the 70s, the “Rachel” inspired by Jennifer Aniston from the sitcom “Friends” or even the surge of “Palin” styled glasses after the former politician gave her “soccer mom/pitbull” speech, to see that many of these trends are harmless and simply a way of expanding fashionable tastes. It doesn’t take long; however, to look through some of Miley Cyrus’ fans’ postings to feel a bit concerned that some of the girls influenced by her style and music are dealing with serious emotional issues and would better be off in therapy than emulating Cyrus’ style,
It should also be noted that while Miley Cyrus has dyed her hair brown, she has made recent statements indicating she’s tired of her hair cut short and struggles and wants it to grow faster.
“I’m secretly tugging on it every night and taking [hair growth vitamin supplement] Viviscal, I’m not going to lie. But I’m going to rock it while I have it,” Cyrus stated.
While some Miley fans can be at times downright scary, as evidenced by the New Zealand artist Lorde tweeting that multiple Cyrus fans sent death threats after claiming the top spot in U.S. iTunes for “Royals,” some of Cyrus’ fans are outright rewarded.
Cyrus reportedly hired one of her obsessed fans (whom she thought might have been a stalker) because of the girl’s keen ability to promote Cyrus’ work online.
Cyrus stated, “She’s more than a stalker because she’s so obsessed, she knows things about how to break VEVO records, which we did with her help.
“She just knows… I don’t know anything, I don’t YouTube or whatever, so she knows what has to be done in what amount of time to be number one or to break the record. She just knows everything.”
Typically, celebrities stay away from their obsessed fans, but if they can prove to be a valuable asset in taking over the world, then Cyrus will put them to work for her.
