MY DEFENSE OF MILEY CYRUS
Dahlings, unless you’ve been on another planet you certainly have either watched the video of Miley Cyrus’ performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. There has been a virtual firehose worth of acidic comments directed toward this young woman for reasons that most people aren’t too concerned with understanding. As much as I LOATHE politics there is a political angle to this manufactured scandal. First of all, dahlings, there is no scandal here at all. Cyrus is simply spreading her wings in an age on Terra, and especially in America, where socially things are changing at a pace faster than the former Master of Morality [read middle aged religious conservative white men] can seem to handle.
There are always going to be prudes, whether they are prudish against artistic expression or simply befuddled and angered by any public display of sexuality, human society will always have some. The times have changed regarding what is acceptable as entertainment in one’s own home, drastically, over the course of the television age. Like Miley Cyrus, or not, favor twerking or not, enjoy erotic and funny performances or not, their is a great shift toward female expressions of sexuality in all forms of art in America and the world in which you live and that is never going to change.
