I know that Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus is a popular icon right now. My daughter has asked from the beginning if she could watch the show and I always said no. I know she seemed really sweet and innocent, but given what has happened to other young female icons in recent past I was leery. I didn't want my daughter becoming fascinated with someone and wanting to be like someone who could possibly end up heading down the same path as some of the others....like Britney or Lindsey. Of course I had to listen to her complain about how I'm a mean mom and she is the only one out of all her friends who is not allowed to watch it. I talked to her about my fears and tried to explain it as best I could. On top of those fears, I just think the show deals with some topics that a girl my daughter's age doesn't need to even have on her radar....like boyfriends, kissing, etc.
I'm sure there are lots of opinions out there on the matter, and I'm not trying to stir up controversy. But I just thought I would leave you with the most recent photo shoot that Miley Cyrus did for Vanity Fair......you can draw your own conclusion.
Sorry, but this is not who I want my daughter looking up to. And don't even get me started on how inappropriate her performance was for a 15 year old girl on Idol Gives Back. She does not need to be down on her knees and pushing her hips forward towards the crowd with her eyes closed, head turned to the side and her hand behind her head (to paint a visual for you).
I know I don't usually post stuff like this. But I just couldn't hold this one in. My intention is not to judge anyone who is a fan.....just to bring awareness to the situation.
