Archive for the ‘Miley Cyrus’ tag
The Chicago-Sun Times is reporting that Miley Cyrus has made her stance on virginity public for everyone to hear.
In an interview with a London newspaper, Cyrus stated that she intends to remain a virgin until marriage. After declaring her intentions, Cyrus also stated that she grew up in a Christian family.
The Sun-Times report also states that Cyrus said she is highly dependent on her parents and religious faith to “keep her grounded.” She also acknowledged that she recognizes that some child stars go “off the rails”, and she mentions Jodie Foster as a positive influence in her life.
While it is not a bad thing that she has made her decision on virginity public, the blogosphere has really taken her words to light.
In a way, Cyrus has established a public standard that will be with her until marriage and throughout the rest of her life. If a report comes out that she does not live up to her promise, how will it affect her view from her younger fans and from the public in general?
Miley Cyrus is in trouble for something fairly unexpected—a photo where she makes a questionable, potentially racist gesture.
TMZ obtained the photo, which showed Miley Cyrus standing around with friends. Miley is the one sitting in the middle, on the lap of her boyfriend, Justin Gaston. They were stretching their eyelids—widely recognized as a racist gesture towards Asians. Despite an Asian-American present in the picture, an organization still objects to the photo.
The OCA, an Asian-American activist group in the U.S., is demanding an apology from Cyrus.
It doesn’t take a genius to see that Cyrus could have possibly been intoxicated or under the influence. As seen in the photo above, a male is holding a glass of wine.
Much more than the controversial poses the group makes for the camera, what does this picture say about Cyrus in general? Is she surrounding herself with the right people? Look at past teenage stars, such as Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan. I’m personally not one to jump to conclusions, but it certainly doesn’t help her public image.
What do you think? Is this a racist situation like the activist group claims, or is this mere overreaction?
