Miley Cyrus and Her Destructive Journey
Written by Nicole | February 8, 2011
I don’t know if 18-year-old singer/actress Miley Cyrus can be looked upon as a wholesome, fresh, and inspiring young role model anymore. Can she?
Her fans – young girls – look up to her as a pretty, confident, and talented woman. Although she may be these things, the fact that she smoked a hallucinogenic chemical called Salvia out of a bong at a friend’s party shortly after her 18th birthday throws the term ‘role model’ out the window.
Add to that her choice of movie roles. In her upcoming feature film LOL, The Huffington Post writes:
Miley Cyrus gets sexual, drugged out and even flashes her Brazilian wax at onscreen mom Demi Moore…
She is growing up and growing out of her Hannah Montana image, but she still has loyal fans looking up to her. Making shocking movies and smoking hallucinogenic chemicals is not at all okay and certainly isn’t appropriate for young susceptible girls to see. Unfortunately, her fans may think it’s cool after pictures and video of Miley have surfaced, showing her “having a good time.” This movie promises even worse images of the former positive role model.
I used to hang out with a group of young starlets like Miley Cyrus. Fortunately, some have their act together, focusing on their careers and their good reputations. But others have tossed their values out the window in a bid for quick fame. It’s sad to see the destructive journey that Miley Cyrus taken to get away from her old image. She used to be grounded and sweet. Has her quest for money and fame put this young girl on the wrong path?
