  • Women in Horror for Halloween
    It’s that time of year again where the weather is starting to cool down and the Halloween decorations are being put out. For me once it hits end of September my TBR becomes nothing, but horror and thriller novels. As a big mood reader the seasons and holidays determine what I want to read next. […]
  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]

Time to move on from celebrities’ choices in music, stop judging

Lately it has been hard not to notice Miley Cyrus. Literally everyone is talking about her, both good and bad. With her scandalous behavior and release of her new music, she is surely the topic of conversation.

Quite frankly, I am tired of hearing about her. Either you like her or you don’t.

Personally, I like Miley. She is doing her own thing and does not care what others think. She is creating hit music that no matter how much you want to hate it, you can’t.

What Miley does is her own business. Sure she is in the public eye and she is subject to speculation and scrutiny, but in reality, her actions don’t directly affect our everyday lives.

Why do we pick on Miley and celebrities alike? The answer is simple. They are what they are: celebrities. We are fascinated with their lives because they are so much different from ours and this intrigues most people.

We want what they have and find anything to pick on them about. We are interested in every aspect of their lives and when they slip up, even just once, we are all over it and want all the latest information.

Now back to Miley. So she made a scandalous video. One that is kind of weird even. And what do we do? We judge her for it. Call her names. But did we ever think that maybe there is a meaning behind what she is depicting in the video? Maybe it is just her form of self-expression, her form of art.

Celebrity singers have been nude in their music videos before and I do not see why Miley being nude in her video is such a big deal.

She displayed nudity in an artistic and classy way, especially compared to some other videos I have seen on television.

She has transitioned from her Hannah Montana phase and is now a talented female artist expressing herself through her work.

In the celebrity world, any news is good news. Whether people are saying good or bad things about Miley or anyone else for that matter, they are still talking about them. Publicity is publicity and that is how they make money.

So whatever your opinion is regarding Miley, it really is not going to affect her. She is going to do what she wants.

If you don’t like what she is doing then don’t watch her videos or listen to her music. Plain and simple. She is going to be famous and make money regardless of your individual opinion.

However, clearly she is doing something right because her music is at the top of the charts and her new video has close to one million views.

Basically, I just don’t think people trash talking her is going to make a difference in her actions and it is just plain annoying.

It seems like everywhere I go people have something to say about Miley. I think it is time for a new topic of conversation. I am tired of hearing about her new song and her performance at the VMA’s. It’s done and over with. Let’s talk about something else.
