Young girls have been looking up to Cyrus for quite some time and her character 'Hannah Montana.' Just a year before the Disney show ended Cyrus came out with some new music to try and shed away her Hannah exterior. Her album 'Can't Be Tamed' came out in 2010 and after a slightly provocative album cover and lyrics like: “I'm like a puzzle but all of my pieces are jagged. If you can understand this,we can make some magic; I'm wrong like that.” It was at this moment everyone knew that they were going to see the “Other Side” of Miley.
Cyrus was able to hold on to her 'Hannah Montana' image until the show and movie were completely over. Then in 2013 Cyrus came in like a “Wrecking Ball” and nobody expected it. Cyrus shaved her head, died her hair blonde and pretty much looks like Justin Bieber with makeup on. But what caused Miley to become the Miley she is today? Is the question everyone has been asking. The truth is no one knows, she stated to the New York Times; “I never wanted to do that to Disney. When I was no longer employed by anyone, that’s when I was like, 'O.K., I’m going to do my own thing.' But I waited until I felt like I had respectfully finished out what I was supposed to do, you know?" It's confusing to a lot of people as to why she is rapping with people like Wiz Kahlifa about being “high off of purp” in the bathroom. Yes, 'Hannah Montana' was just a character but does anyone see 'Lizzie McGuire' aka Hilary Duff “running lines in the bathroom?” At this point it's ones own choice as to whether they want to like it or leave it. Cyrus is going to do what she wants and she said that loud and clear leaving behind her die hard Disney fans.
One person she could learn from is Ms. Ariana Grande, instead of telling Ms. Grande that she needs to be wearing less clothing she should do the opposite and learn from the Nickelodeon star. Cyrus also revealed this to the New York Times about Grande; “I see her wearing shorter things. She comes in, and she goes, 'This made me feel like you.' And I’m like, ‘That was like my sixth grade prom dress.’ She’s, I think, still on Nickelodeon. She has people that she has to kind of respect.” Well, hate to break it to you Miley but respect should always be present whether one is working for a younger audience or not. Respecting others and oneself will lasts longer, attention will only get someone so far.
