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.

The should have just put a shark up on the stage. Everyone could have jumped it.

Its actually sad, because the girl can sing. Too bad she feels like she has to act a like a whore to get attention.

In my very minimal idle curiosity on this subject of child stars and Hollyweird, I wonder what would happen to Shirley Temple in todays milieu? When the child star is surrounded by and immersed in a corrupting culture, does it have ANY CHANCE of remaining clean AND being a continuing successful actor?

The irony here comes from the victims who, while decrying the abuse they have suffered, remain committed to the licentious liberalism and political culture that fosters and condones the abusers. Roman Polanski and Woody Allen come readily to mind here.

How dare you insult ho’s.

Miley is creating her own class to be judged in.

Wouldn’t surprise me to learn Madonna has some management rights.

Love those reactions from the Smith daughters. Kind of reminds me of the Kerry daughters on-stage at the VMAs in 2004:

I was going to be clever and come up with individual thought balloons for what Will and family were thinking, but on second thought, I think one collective “OMG! WTF?!” pretty much covers it 100%.

I believe the inset photo is actually Lady Gaga, who, as I understand it, began her act dressed as a nun and then stripped down ... that.

Ok, just watched it on YT.

See Lords of Acid circa early/mid 90s for where she got...or her handlers got the idea. Look up “I sit on Acid” the live version.

Even in televised pors they can’t be original.

She was trying to be Madonna. She does not realize that the market for sluts is over-saturated these days, and she would have done better to preserve a wholesome image and do country. I get the impression that she has surrounded herself with a lot of gay advisers, who are lying to her about what the real market wants.

You’re right.....she (or whoever came up with her act) basically ripped off Lords of Acid.

Lords of Acid was at least original, and they were always well-known for their rather raunchy act.

Consider the reaction if she came out dressed to the nines, in a classic-but really sexy—gown.

Simple. Nice lines.

If she is a good singer, she could pull it off to a standing ovation.

The issue is that most of singers, cannot sing. They rely on choreography to make up for a lousy voice.

If you want to see a cabaret show, I guess that is OK. Just not my cup of tea. And I am NOT some old fogey...And I like to see pretty girls, looking pretty.

Or if you are doing it in a studio, Melodyne. I have it. You can make anyone pitch perfect and morph sound like play dough if you are good.

Anyone with a body/looks can be a star.

Music should reflect the hopes and dreams of a civilization. Great music should reflect excellence. It should bring people to a higher level and unite them in positive ways. It should tell they story of a people in a way that reflects their dreams and hopes.

We used to have music, when our culture was great. Now we have sluts and pimps on stage.

Got Avanna...the english version basically, too ;)

Japan has entire charts dedicated to Vocaloid music. Over here it hasn’t caught on as it’s hard to program to sound really good solo. The English language with all its details is a lot harder than Japanese...but it CAN be done. When Yamaha gets the software more user friendly, it will rule. No ego chick to deal with and 3d imaging is totally real now.

I don’t get the twerking thing.

As I said, I am not a prude, old fogey. I enjoy sex with my wife. I enjoy looking at pretty girls.

The only time in my life when I did anything even closely resembling this is when I played college football. As a center, the QB would put his hands under and when I hiked the ball sometimes it would move my, ahem...protection, out of place. I would have to grab it and do a little hop on the way to the huddle.

That felt good.

So, I guess I can understand why they do it. But why are they wearing a cup when they sing?

Codpiece imagery/sexual agression

Blackie Lawless from WASP used to wear a buzzsaw codpiece.

In the case of women wearing one, it hints at a strap on without the ‘total package’.

What a fast transition from Disney heroine to trashy slut. I remember part of her powerdive when she strutted on stage with small leather fig leaf shorts(?) and no undies but a proud smile.

Miley Cyrus looks to be this decade's version of Britney Spears. A lot of musicians are self-destructive: Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, Sr., Billie Holliday. Actors have similar problems, as do writers. Until the 1960s, performers who had evident problems were removed from the mainstream and relegated to the margins, like obscure nightclubs and the bohemian districts of cities like New York or San Francisco, the fate of Lenny Bruce or Allen Ginsburg. Vulgar performances were rare; even suggestive ones were toned down or censored, e.g., Elvis Presley's hip swivels on the Ed Sullivan Show.

American society lost its moral compass decades ago. That moral compass was based on Biblical principles.
