I think it's about time I go out on a limb and defend my girl Miley Cyrus. So as well all know Miley was recently caught in a scandal which involved her alleged use of the drug Salvia. For those of you unfamiliar with the incident see the enclosed video Miley smokes Salvia.
Miley recently commented on the incident saying "I'm not perfect. I made a mistake. I'm disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans," Miley told the interviewer. But when pressed whether it truly was a mistake—thousands of colleges kids do the same thing (or worse) every day—Miley's answer was earnest and surprisingly mature. "But they're not Miley Cyrus," she explained. "They're not role models. So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for."
I'd just like to say that, as someone who is 21 years of age I completely agree with what she is saying. Yes the things she chooses to do may be somewhat controversial and people judge her because they question her taste and judgment. Well I have something to say to all you HATERS.
Miley is a young woman who has made a career for herself in Hollywood. Starting at 13 years old Miley has been in the spotlight almost the entire time. Her life on Hannah Montana thrusted her into stardom including magazine covers, million dollar endorsements, and sold out concert tours around the world. I think that people tend to judge her because they don't understand her decisions. Well let me put it into terms us "normal" people might understand. Miley has grown up in the spotlight and has been forced to grow up fast. She was on forbes list in 2010 for making 48 MILLION $$$. I'd have to say that is quite an accomplishment. From her scandals of the magazine cover showing her nearly naked, to her leaked cell phone pictures and more recent music video and salvia controversy. I just think that people need to understand that she is young and is going to make mistakes. It just so happens that she is in the public eye and under intense scrutiny. How many of you have done things she did at 16,17, 18 years old. Kids these days are growing up a lot faster than older generations and I just think she deserves more credit than she is given. Miley is, in my opinion, a talented singer, songwriter, actress, model, and designer and this is all before she even turns 18 years old. SO i'd just like to ask, lets all take a moment and take a look at the amazing things Miley HAS done rather than look at how she has "let down her young fans" Miley has older fans like myself and she is growing and coming into her own. Obviously she can't sing about being Hannah Montana and dress like she's 12 years old forever. 18 year olds go to college, get drunk, experiment, dress inappropriately. But face it, the only reason people criticize her this way is because she is in the public eye and a role model.
So, in conclusion, i'd just like to say congratulations to Miley Cyrus, for all she has accomplished and everything she has to accomplish in the future. And to the HATERS, when you make 45 million dollars in one year, i'll listen to your reasoning for disliking her.
Also, this girl has started to look beautiful over the past couple of years.
