Okay, not literally. But I am going to tell you all something that is such an unpopular opinion, that people will probably want my head on a stick. I am going to tell you the one thing I’m sure will get so much negativity from my friends and sister, and I won’t care. I will defend this say to the best of my debating abilities, but I hardly think it matters.
Alright, here goes.
I actually like Miley Cyrus.
Now, if you know me, you’ll know that when I don’t like something, I will scream it to the heavens. I will tell you that One Direction isn’t exactly my cuppa. I will roll my eyes when people call themselves Beliebers. But I won’t actually hate on them. I voice my opinions, but I won’t scathingly belittle these artists. I mean, sound’s a preference, right?
But lately, a certain someone’s performances in public have started getting her a lot of attention. And I’ve been wanting to write a blog post about this special person, but I’ve only had the chance to do so now.
So ladies and gentlemen, here it goes: My defense against why I actually like Miley Cyrus.
Okay, so I admit that she annoyed me a little as Hannah Montana. But I was hard-headed and rebellious at the time, and I immediately disliked anything that had to do with cliched girly girls. (I now see how hypocritical I was at that time, because I actually used ‘Cheese Niblets’ as an expression before. Yes, I did) When Miley grew up and started moving onto bigger projects like The Last Song, and making her much more mature music, that’s when I started seeing that, okay, this chick ain’t so bad.
Because who doesn’t love the classic love song when she starts crooning out lyrics like, ‘When my world is falling apart, when there’s no light to break up the dark, that’s when I, I, look at you’. And when we were heartbroken, I’m sure we all screamed out the lyrics to ‘7 things’. Yeah, I thought so.
Not to mention that she’s beautiful. In my humble opinion, of course. I mean, her eyes. Her body. Her hair (which she chopped off recently, but well… It’s like a Brittney Spears move, and no one’s talking sh*t about her (Spears) now, right?)
Oh, and I won’t lie and say I didn’t find her songs ‘I Can’t Be Tamed’ and ‘Who Owns My Heart’ to be horrid. No, I actually liked them. Danced around a bit to them. The thing is, my thoughts on Miley were starting to improve. Even though I kinda agreed with the critics who were saying she was getting a bit too wild, I didn’t think about it like that. I thought of it more like, hey, she’s growing up. Let her grow up.
Actually the whole thing started blowing up when she cut her hair. And I mean, come on. It’s just her hair. Why was everyone going all apesh*t (sorry, the number of times I will swear on this blog post will be quite a few. I rarely let loose like this. No, actually, it is my first time to swear on a blog post. I’m sorry.) over that? A ‘sign of rebellion’?
Okay, there might have been a few issues about racy photos, and talking back to her parents, and the clothes… But she was growing up, what can you say? Who are we to decide what she’s going to wear, or be, or how she’s going to act? I’m sure you wouldn’t like it if people started making random comments about the picture you posted on Instagram, or the clothes you wore to go to the supermarket.
See, look at how sad you’re making her.
I know I made one of the weakest arguments ever, but I couldn’t help it. I like Miley Cyrus (no homo). I think she deserves all the awards she’s been given, despite her going bare in a music video, lighting a joint on stage, and grinding into Robin Thicke. Putting all that on the table, even if what she did was wrong, it was her choice. She’s not exactly saying she’s the best role model for little girls; Miley is not Hannah Montana anymore. In the end, I listen to her music because of the beautiful sound that comes out of her heart, not her style. She’s 21 years old and she has a life.
Oh, and so do you. So haters, stop hating. There’s a way to voice out your opinion politely. PEACE OUT AND PEACE TO THE WORLD.
On another note, Happy Birthday to Miley. November 23, I think? 😀 And I know this blog post wasn’t exactly the best defense. Hey, there are more holes in here than I can count. But I don’t like people giving sh*t to people who are just being people.
