I don't think it's quite that devious....it's more a matter of a girl growing up and shaking off the Disney image. Is it really 'cool' to be Hannah Montana when your out of high school anymore? Taking a cue from both pink and Rhianna...pardon the spelling, and a cue from every pop star that ever pulled a raunchy stunt to help sell a soon to be released album and get that ever more valuable spotlight. This was marketing brilliance!

How old is everyone on this thread?? Anyone ever heard of Madonna?? This is not a new thing to be "shocking". This is a planned event, she has a new album coming out.

She has how many threads on this site?? She is on the National News, she is everywhere because of this. Now her Album is about to drop.

Follow the Money...it always shows the way.

Personally, her act is just a step for the next generation to act like whores. Girls dont need to shed there clothes, grind on guys, stick there toungue out, brag about doing drugs, etc. to be noticed.

She was noticed way before she did these things, she just has been told that to stay relevant she must step up her whore game.

well formulated OP

...the reason for the created degeneration,
is to have first gathered, when the act is still innocent, an energetic connection from all those initial 'fans'

and then, when the idol goes Bad,
the energetic imprint within the 'fans' cause that those people get susceptible for óther Negative energies

so...its kind of being used as Chisel

regards,

You are correct this is nothing new. And it hardly goes back to just music, remember Melissa Joan Hart? For these younger entertainers it isn't really about the same things as it is for Madonna and Lady Gaga. This is about transitioning from a child star into an adult star. And this is where what Ms. Cyrus did was really shocking, she was bad at it. Instead of coming across as a provocative, bold, entertaining entertainer she comes across as being the girl willing to make all the wrong choices because she can to prove she is all grown up now.


Now here is a question which one is acting the way you'd expect a porn star to act?

This was the first banned video from Mtv. So I guess time is an equation? so from my understanding when time progresses Tv will allow more things? or is the evidence I provide to this topic totally insane?
if you look at the subject matter I present which was banned due to the time era. and you think about the future. pls issue complaints about what is in store for the future. pls do so with evidence.

I saw the Chilli Peppers rock out with nothing more than socks on in the 90s. That was OK right? They are real musicians...
Madonna, nothing she hasn't done before with a conical bra.
Britney a 16 yr old in a school uniform asking to be hit one more time.
Cher with a see through body stocking that just had a sprinkle of beddazzled gems in strategic places.

Miley was doing what she wants, mixed with "thinking" she was doing what she wants. She has a whole team around her, it was all very well planned. She is a clever clever clever woman she runs her empire very well.
She marketed herself exactly as she wanted to to not become a distant child star memory. Her tongue out with the teddy bears looked like she is sticking it to the child star brand, she 'aint so cute any more.

I think she looked a bit ridiculous, but hey that that doesn't matter a snitch. No one seems to be outraged at Thicke?

Entertainment & marketing, nothing new.

Yea so shes gotta be cutting edge, ya know pushing the envelope. eventually in 50 years what will you think is happening on stage due to this logic?

you all know justin timberlake right? the guy who ripped the bra off janet Jackson during a live performance off the super bowl a few year back. His latest video has full frontal nudity "tunnel vision".

pls show me how sex is a decreasing market. then I will complain how you are all right about miley cyrus being so absolutely a skid mark in music history. but as of right now it seems the repeat of Sodom and gommorah is perfectly on track. And its very unintelligent to argue otherwise.

Doesn't this creature have a father or something?

One day I was exposed to some country and just when my spine started to bristle, he was on cameras saying

"Don't get me wrong: I love disney...'

Apparently he had done something to piss them off and was trying to atone for it.

Everyone acts like the money has to pass through their masters hands before they get their cut.

What craps my bottom is when even the athletes must do the UN catwalk thing for them.

I can understand how most music and acting hoes must pimp UN stuff, but why must athletes do it as well?

I mean...either you play well and win, or you don't. The money is still yours, right, even if you turn against them?

Or can they take it away retroactively because you refuse to do a tweet that says it's 'time to follow UN better planet guidelines and turn off your lights...'

I assume you'll never work in their world again if you snub them in their UN world power grab.
And there goes the fame.

Snub. I hate them.

I'll have to have a sit down with him. He will sit and he will listen, until I tell him he can stand.

It must be tied in to the sponsors, the way the contracts are set up. That's where the real money is. And they can turn it on and off like a faucet. Having hundreds of millions at your disposal really only shows you how far you are. From having a billion.

I wonder whether Miley Cyrus is transforming at her own free will - as a teenager expressing herself or whether this is a deliberate choreographed exhibition to capture yet another audience of dirty old and young men.

When such huge amounts of money come into play and contracts dictate actions etc how free is an artist. Obviously the prettier the better so a good 'display'

I think the artistry here has gone into a dark space, we are hugely populated yet our young are being launched into
ever more suggestive sex at a very early age which spoils their innocense way too early.

What bothers me about this is that a few corporate ghastlies financially benefit from this exploitation and get congratulated on their 'success' by the masses.

The act of sex which should be a beautiful act is being pimped by these moguls.

I am outraged people are not. You have me on your side there. The sexism is tremendous with this Miley and Thicke stuff. It's astounding. Even more so that it's coming from both genders.

I should qualify that. I am outraged at the sexism. Honestly I'm not bothered by the performance much. Meh. It's not my cup of tea but I'm not concluding they are horrible people from that *scripted* event.

No doubt the moguls with their eye on the bottom line are ok with her little stunts. They make them money with no real investment. But at the end of the day this has to be more her own doing. Studios and record execs do and will suggest pushing her sexuality, but the response they want is WOW that was hot I want to see more ala Britney, Madonna and Lady Gaga. They are not looking for WTF was she doing or better yet thinking taking out a life size teddy bear.

All of her recent stunts point to a young girl desperate to break the carefully molded Disney image and on her way to an emotional breakdown like those that came before her. I don't know what it is but when I see other women act like this, I always get the feeling they are trying so hard to compete with how they think men act. If that makes any sense.

I'm my opinion she should be ashamed of herself. I thought she was a role model for for kids and teens but it rather more like having her little followers to be......what's the word I'm looking for? Slutty.


Yep. This is Miley introducing her little followers to pole dancing a few years ago when she was 16.



And this is how her little sister and her friends behaved around the same time...

To me she's not even sexy. She's built like a nine year old boy. And what's with the tongue always hanging out? Does she think she's Michael Jordan on a full-court break? Now if it was someone like Kate Upton twerking like that, I'd actually enjoy it.

Before her image "makeover" this year, Cyrus left the Disney-owned Hollywood Records, and signed with RCA (which I can't find any evidence offhand of the two corps. being intertwined). There isn't any "plan" behind a 20 year-old millionaire putting their money up their nose and turning on the sex appeal. These formerly "innocent" stars are growing up, and becoming jaded in the entertainment industry.
You don't have to look hard to see that many child stars turn into drug addicts, as having the Sword of Damocles hanging over your head from a young age tends to make you not turn out too well adjusted. The reason Miley is twerking and singing about molly is that she, like Justin Bieber pissing in a mop bucket, are too damn high.
I'm a long time lurker (without an account) on these forums and this is my first time posting, but I always see people looking too closely at the mundane for evidence of whatever worldview-defining conspiracy is theirs; If you want to point out something about Lady GaGa's mysticism laden music videos / outfits / persona, I agree that there is some merit to that thought (though she, like Drake / Bieber / Jay Z seems to be doing it purely for the aura of mystique that flying those flags attaches to her act). In the case of Miley doing these wild acts in a performance, it's because she wants to appeal to a wider audience (of older, pervy men). It's a shameless money grab.
As a counterpoint, look at Justin Bieber's stage persona - still a squeaky clean one-man boy band. (With some kinda weird messianic crap with the all-white outfits, and I think I saw a picture of him wearing angel wings somewhere). He is still working at his target demographic, and his transition towards working with more hip-hop acts is how he will attempt to evolve, as pop / R&B / rap / EDM are all the same genre in modern music, and it is an existing archetype that can be filled, just as "Scantily-Clad Temptress" has been an established trope for female performers for decades.

TL;DR: No conspiracy of corruption, just normal sex, drugs, rock & roll (&$) corruption
