Miley Cyrus - No Shame At MTV Awards
Political Realities ^ | 08/26/13 | LD Jackson

Posted on 08/26/2013 5:33:47 AM PDT by LD Jackson

Allow me this morning to make a detour from my regular posting about news and politics. There are some things that go beyond the pale and are hard to describe, but beg to be written about. Without sharing the video of Miley Cyrus and her raunchy dance at the opening of the MTV Video Music Awards, I can not describe the disgust I felt. I was doing my normal reading of the news this morning and came across a website that had a copy of the video embedded. I made it through to the point where she took off her clothes before I turned it off. I couldn't stand watching this young woman degrade herself any longer.

Just so we are clear, I normally do not watch such videos. I am a fan of gospel music, with a few country songs (if they aren't about cheating and drinking) tossed in for flavor. I do not listen to, or watch, the kind of music and videos that are making millions by selling sex and raunchy behavior to teenagers. If you want to see what I mean, I am sure you can find the video of Miley Cyrus and her dance at the MTV awards. If you haven't seen it, trust me when I say this, it's downright nasty.

I have watched a few clips of the Disney show that starred Miley Cyrus as Hannah Montana. It seemed to be a fairly wholesome show about a teenage girl who was a pop idol in her secret life. The clips I have watched were funny and the show seemed to be more of a comedy than anything else. That's a far cry from what climbed out of the belly of a giant teddy bear last night when the MTV awards opened with Miley Cyrus.

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus

I am not a naive person. I have no problem grasping the concept that not everyone holds the same moral values that I hold, that I was taught when I was a boy. I have no problem realizing that not everyone likes the same kind of music. Many of the bloggers I am acquainted with share some of their rock and roll music with their readers and from time to time, I have shared some of the gospel music I enjoy. That's not what this post is about.

There are many people in America who bemoan the fact that our children seem to hold little or no morals. Many of them wonder why this is, but it shouldn't be a big surprise. We have teenager girls acting like little sluts and teenage boys acting like hoodlums and gangsters. Those kind of lifestyles seem to be glorified in our country. And we have the audacity to wonder why this is happening? Take a look at the MTV awards last night and you might get a clue.

Is there any wonder why we see so many teenagers with drug, alcohol, and sex problems? When they look up to and worship someone like Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga, what else can we expect. Garbage in, garbage out.

I posted "Alas, Brave New Babylon" on FR today. This article echoed a little section of my story to the T.

"The ubiquitous entertainment screens were perfect for one thing (and they kept this distinction right to the end): distracting the masses. Better than any mule’s blinkers, the pleasure screens both attracted the eyes and fed the mind happy messages. Whatever you wanted, they were serving it 24/7 on a thousand television channels and a million interactive websites. Pick your poison. Entertain yourself to death.

"What was the name of that pop star vixen at the last Super Bowl? She was wearing a dominatrix outfit with shiny sharpened rivets in the usual places. And where did she come by her Aldous Huxley, singing “hug me till you drug me, kiss me till I’m in a coma,” nearly word for word from Huxley’s Brave New World? No doubt she’d never read a book in her life, much less that one.

"Before the collapse, the high-def screens had allowed each watcher to choose from a virtual infinity of customizable fantasies, but there was usually nothing behind those magical glass windows but a plasterboard wall and another stark habitation cubicle built the other way around for the next inhabitant over. Within the dying hive there was no incoming food, fuel, or running water. Not even electricity to move the stale air.

"Soon after the screens went black, the pharmacy-dispensed medications ran out as well, the cold-turkey withdrawal pouring more fuel on our raging social fires. Our Brave New World featured Huxley’s “Christianity without the tears,” until the Soma was gone. A gram is better than a damn, until there are no more grams left but plenty of damnation to go around—and people are damned mad when they’re starving."

It’s a gay man’s idea of what sells to horny teens. That’s it.

That's a perfect description of most television programming.

BINGO

Bette Midler, Madonna and GaGa are has-beens
The bathhouse community has its new goddess

But...what parent in their RIGHT MIND would let their kid attend a concert by this trashpiece? As Hannah Montana she had the 8-12’s

Now I cannot IMAGINE who she thinks she is playing to

guilty white liberals who don’t want their kids to be labeled “H8ters”??

No idea how it helped her surfing...

Pretty much. Gays control the upper levels of fashion, so you see plenty of ads reflecting homoerotic imagry. The women in them look like teen boys...no Cindy Crawford types.

They have ruled Hollywood for decades.

The technical boards I frequent for music engineering topics are lousy with PC/GLBQRSTUV whatever language and praise for the lyfestyle and God help you if you disagree. Inbred mentality there.

All designed to open minds to ‘gay is OK’ and add to their options.

Well, you figure, the dude had a hit that went down in history. It was SOOOOO bad that people couldn’t help but talk about it. It sucked musically, lyrically and made him famous and wealthy. His hair, horrid as it was, was imitated.

And then vanished overnight. No fame, no nothing. Gone.

What else could explain it?

It is really not a mater of no shame. It is more a matter of no taste. That tasteless performance reeks of someone without an education and no real sense of taste.

From my point of view it was hard to tell if she thought she was mocking the mentally handicapped? Or maybe mocking her former fans? [One of the rules of changing your persona that she may have missed is that you do not want to toss the old fans before you start getting new ones.] There was nothing appealing about that. It was not sexy. It was not funny. I was not clever. It is hard to believe a director of the show let her do that unless they were attempting to make her look like a fool.

I just know that if Hanna Montana were to have a rebellious phase, that is exactly how it would look. That is just like many other rebellious teen tasteless and unattractive.

The Japanese language lends itself almost perfectly to Vocaloid, but yes, once the software gets more user friendly, and more English-language adaptable (and it will), like you said, no more divas. LOL!

I believe Michael Savage used to refer to it as "the 19" peephole into paradise". Pure evil. Doesn't get used much in my entertainment room - wife cannot take her eyes off it however. I get my news from the internet and talk radio, and that seems to fill my needs.

A big difference is that those earlier stars...Elvis, JimiHendrix, Janie, Etta James etc had talent. The music they created really got to the depths of emotion and experience and their audiences felt that.

This new crowd of "stars" as I stated earlier....sluts and pimps. Are there artists out there, sure. But it's almost impossible to be that and be attractive to profit-hungry big media.

When I first researched it, I was unsurprised to see that few singers will work with Vocaloid companies to do the samples...which are just vowel sounds.breaths etc.. They know what their future looks like.

6 figures to pay a diva or 4 to pay a good Vocalod programmer. Not hard math to follow. and when a ‘body’ is needed, hire a 3D animator for another 4 figures.

Done.

Oh its “culture” alright, just not good culture that in the end benefits humanity. MTV strongly reflects far left even anything goes culture.

Regrettably, it is probably going to require SHTF to either eliminate “that” culture or separate us from it.

The song title “We Can’t Stop” is appropriate. This industry cannot stop in it’s headlong rush to the gutter. Every performance must be a little bit more outrageous than the previous one, otherwise it gets no attention.

What I found interesting is that nobody, particularly the African Americans in the audience, found this act at all amusing. The fake audience around the stage stood up and waved their arms, but only because they were paid to do so. The people watching in the audience were bemused, at best.

In the best of times for the Folies Bergère in the 1890s, competition was fierce among young women competing for personal attention possibly leading to success.

One evening, while performing with dozens of other young women on stage, a dancer had a “wardrobe malfunction”, when the overburdened seams of her undergarments finally gave up the ghost mid-dance. Such was the scandal that the young woman immediately catapulted to stardom.

Soon, hardly a performance could go by without intentionally weakened stitches exploding under stress. As a critic of the time noted, “It was often hard to hear performances beneath the sound of the tearing of fabric.”

Times change. But there is nothing new under the Sun.

Well ya...and they billed and marketed themselves that way. They sure didn't start out on the Disney channel. That and I think they had more talent.

Thier act, despite being designed to play on teen hormones, had a certain honesty in it's overt raunch, this act was more freaky and disturbing than raunchy, and was played to a mostly unsuspecting audience.

Miley Cyrus certainly changed her teen popstar image...I'm just not sure why she wanted to replace it with repugnant skeezy tramp.

“Is there any wonder why we see so many teenagers with drug, alcohol, and sex problems? When they look up to and worship someone like Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga, what else can we expect. Garbage in, garbage out.” ............................. He got it right. If you are good, you don’t need to make a production with fx. and turn it into a strip show. Look at Jacki Evenko, she doesn’t need anything other than her voice, and hopefully she will not take the same route as Miley Cirus and Lady Gaga.
