The Internet has declared that teen pop idol Hannah Montana is dead. Of course, she was never a real person anyway, but the alter ego of Miley Cyrus has been declared the victim of death by "twerking" after Sunday night's 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. According to an Aug. 26 report on The Globe and Mail, the death occurred when Miley Cyrus took the stage with Robin Thicke and shocked the world with her appearance and performance.
Cyrus, wearing a skin-coloured latex bikini, ground her twerking derriere into Thicke’s groin, patted his nether regions with a foam finger, used the same foam finger to replicate a tumescent male penis....
It was beyond anything previously featured on this or any other award show, including shocking performances by Lady Gaga. There seems to be a totally universal sense of revulsion about Miley Cyrus and her bizarre appearance in the media. MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski was furious that the video had been played at all on their show, and she made it clear she did not want it played again. You can read about Mika's remarks here.
At the moment that Miley stepped out of the big bear and proceeded to strip to her undies for the grand and vulgar finale, Hannah Montana, the pop idol of so many "once-little" girls, gasped her last breath. Of all the horrendous things that Miley Cyrus did Sunday night, the worst was that she totally ruined all the childhood memories of these young ladies.
Has the public so quickly forgotten the Hannah Montana phenomenon? The project which took her whole teen years to build, which brought her fame and fortune, was suddenly and completely burned to the ground without a trace. Be sure and view the Hannah Montana 2007 concert slideshow attached to this article.
Hannah Montana retired from singing when Miley Cyrus began her own singing career. It was difficult to surpass the popularity of the blonde sensation. Last night, Cyrus sealed the deal, and that's probably just what she wanted to do.
Some say it was a public execution.
