Miley Cyrus Is Doing It to Empower You


Miley Cyrus' new record Can't Be Tamed is certainly getting a massive amount of attention since Miley's wardrobe does not seem to be able to be tamed either.

As the crotch-flashing, ear-tattoo-getting, almost nekkid stage shows have us all gasping about the 17-year-old and her judgment, Miley says she's only trying to empower the ladies.

I just wish she didn't have to empower us by taking off her clothes.

I get that owning your sexuality and not being afraid to show you're a sexual being is very empowering. I believe in saying, "This is who I am -- deal with it" as long as it's not hurting anyone else.

But why does confidence always have to come from flaunting lady parts? I think my boobs are pretty great, but I'd rather have people notice what's coming out of my mouth or my heart than the gals -- no matter how sexy I might feel. That's empowering. Attention to my body parts has nothing to do with me, and everything to do with nature and a carnal desire on the part of the admirer.

If Miley really wants to teach girls about empowerment (which she has, in the past), I'd much rather she not show us her t**s first. That's all.

I think we all have to admit that most 17 yo girls would do the same thing.  I didn't see The Stir commenting on Taylor Swift's striperella concerts where she was girating on the floor with water falling on her.  LOL!  I mean, at 17 your hormones are roaring and you want to be sexy.  I'd have done the same thing.  I don't like that they do it and make other girls younger and their age want to do it more but that's just the way it is. 


If I can put the fact that she's 17 out of my mind and just watch the video with my speakers muted then it turns into a pretty amazing video.

I think everybody needs to quit making a fuss over what Miley Cyrus does or doesn't do, what she wears or doesn't wear, or what she says or doesn't say.  Yes, I agree how Miley thinks she's empowering women isn't the right way to do it, but jeez people, quit making it into a whole affair.  It's like the time she danced NEAR a pole at the Teen's Choice Awards.  Omg, she is not a stripper for dancing near a pole.  Her routine was not centered around the pole, but God-forbid she wears booty shorts like all the other celebs and dances semi-provocatively near a damn pole.  So Miley's getting older, growing out of her Disney persona (the reason she quit Hannah Montana was because she was too old, people) and wearing mature clothes.  Grow up people, teen girls are just going to learn to do that stuff from another source.  Don't blame Miley for doing what she does, blame the people who put the pressure on her to be little Miss Perfect all the time because she USED to be Hannah.  Like she said before, her new look, her new sound is her way of saying, I'm not Disney, I'm me and I'm getting older so get used to it.  If you don't like how she looks or sounds, then don't look or listen to her and find something else to do besides rag on celebrities.
