A Racy Performance Leads to Distressed Parents

At the moment, she is possibly one of the most controversial and talked about celebrities in the world. So why not talk about her on here? Between the MTV Video Music Awards and her new music video “Wrecking Ball,” Miley Cyrus has roused many different reactions from people across the nation.  People are in shock. Parents are infuriated. They’re all talking about her while they are at work or at school or in line waiting for their food. What do I think about it all? I think people need to stop wasting their time and energy, because at the end of the day their angry opinions won’t change a thing.

Everything started after the performance that Miley did with Robin Thicke at the VMA’s. It was very racy and somewhat inappropriate. Miley danced on Robin, in a manner that insinuated something sexual. She had a foam finger that she used suggestively, as well.  By the end of the performance she was dancing in latex underwear. Was the performance tasteless and unnecessary? Yes, but people often forgot a few facts about this world that makes their whining and complaining, inconsequential and insignificant,

Firstly, Miley Cyrus is a celebrity. She has a net worth of $150 million. What exactly are people hoping to accomplish by expressing their disbelief and shock to their coworkers, peers, or the person taking their order at a Chick Fil A? Do they know Miley’s manager so they can pass along their concerns? I highly doubt that’s the case, so she will continue to do as she pleases. In fact, she will continue to do what she has been doing because she’s getting attention. Then, there are the people that have realized that complaining about it to these people is pointless. So they decide to complain to the people they believe can do something: the FCC. That is also a joke! There are laws that offer cable networks a lot more protection than they do broadcast networks. Cable network are not strictly regulated because they are not available to everyone via the airwaves, unlike with broadcast. The FCC cannot impose fees on MTV because they didn’t do anything illegal. That being said, I see a simple solution: if you were so offended by what was shown on MTV, you can easily unsubscribe from receiving the service. That would be more effective then complaining to someone about how Miley should behave like more of a role model for their children.
