The entire world seems to be slinging a lot of trash talk toward this young woman since her admittedly "raunchy" act at the VMA awards.
Did she have it coming? Yes.
Did she ask for it? Yes.
Was this the first time we've seen young Hollywood starlets behave in this manner?
Unfortunately we've seen this this sort of thing waaay to often.
Like most everyone else I was totally disgusted by such behavior, at first. But the longer I thought about it the sadder I became. I'm sad for her. I'm sad for her parents. I'm sad for everyone who loves this young woman and wants nothing but the best for her. Somewhere along the way Miley has lost track of what makes her so special. We've seen lots of teens do this, though most of these "melt down's" don't take place on a national TV stage. It would be simplistic to point the blame finger at her parents. If the truth were told I'd bet their heart is breaking to see their daughter behaving like this. If you've ever parented older teens you know that after age 18 there's not a lot a parent can do regarding their child's behavior. If a child is determined to self-destruct often a parent is forced to stand by helplessly and simply be there to "pick up the pieces" when the child tanks.
This young woman is tanking.
And it's sad.
And it's sad.
The Blame Game:
- Shame on everyone in the audience who applauded her.
- Shame on every magazine who will write about this for their financial gain.
- Shame on the network that aired her act.
