Miley the Teen Queen

hannahmontanarocksul0Most people have heard of Miley Cyrus. The younger generation knows her as Hannah Montana, the pop star living a double life secretly as an ordinary girl by day and a glamorously blonde pop star by night. 

I remember when she rose to fame. Parents and magazine articles alike praised her for being a wonderful role model for the little kiddos. Walmart sold clothes with her face emblazoned on the front. Tweens adored her and wanted to be to be her. And everyone was happy to find a teen star who stood for all the values that they believed in. After all, she had such a happy home life. At the time Miley was 14 or 15. 

When did things start to change? Was it the green bra that leaked out? Was it the scandalous Vanity Fair picture shoots? When was it? Or were all these things the precursor of a dark future for the teen star? People wondered. Articles were published, debating whether Cyrus was following in the footsteps of the Spears. Even though Cyrus and her parents put forth an apology for her questionable actions, people were not satisfied. 

In any case, the attacks against Cyrus became more heated.

People’s reactions were mixed.

I’m sure we can conclude that only time will tell. 

090401-miley-glamour-vmedwidecMiley recently appeared on the cover of Glamour magazine. The article was titled, “Miley: America’s most famous girl grows up.” In it, Miley was asked questions about her life, and how life was like as a teen star.

GLAMOUR: Can you ever imagine your life playing out like Britney Spears’ or Lindsay Lohan’s? They started out as squeaky-clean Disney stars too.

MC: The last thing I ever want to do is disappoint my parents. My mom’s dad died when she was 18, and if something ever happened to one of my parents, I’d want them to go knowing I made them proud. I think it’s selfish to go out partying all the time, especially if you have little ones [in your family]. I have a nine-year-old sister, and I don’t want her to go to school and have people make fun of her for it.

Article: here

Maybe things are safe… for now. But who knows? The past teen stars (Spears, Lohan, and the Olsen twins) went into drugs, men, and sex. Maybe that will happen to Cyrus, maybe not. 

However, an article I read the other day reminded me of the fragility of stars. A lady tried to sell Cyrus some anti-aging products. She thought that Cyrus was in her 40s. 

I had to set her straight: “Ok lady, that is NOT my husband, that is NOT my child and I am NOT 40, I’m 16.

Such an incident goes to show that even teen stars are vulnerable to the ravages of aging.

    Well I think that most people just need to remember that she is a teenager and teenagers sometimes do stupid things (heck we all do stupid things not only teenagers)
