Is Miley Cyrus’ “Decisions” Just Another Rebellious Step Away From Hannah Montana?
Written by T.M. Gaouette | November 4, 2012
We’ve discussed Miley Cyrus many times on PI. Her songs, videos and style in recent years have indicated that she’s striving to erase the Hannah Montana image that made her famous.
Her more recent attempt at breaking away is her decision to feature in the song, “Decisions,” by Israeli dubstep D.J. Borgore.
In the just released music video for the dance club song, Cyrus is seen partying wildly with Borgore and a porn star. She’s also seen making out with a person dressed in a unicorn costume –supposedly her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth.
*Ladies, please note that this video contains inappropriate actions and bad language. Please talk to a parent first if you feel this may be inappropriate for you.
We’ve seen so many young celebs transition from child to adult, and oftentimes it’s in an attempt to rebel against their former good girl images.
Transitioning into an adult is an important phase in a young girl’s life, but there are negative ways of doing it. Many teens choose to transition by rebelling against all that was instilled in them and expected of them by their parents -as if to say, “I’m an adult now, and I can do what I want.”
For celebs, the rebellion is usually against their fan-base and the media, although, I do wonder if Cyrus’ rebellion is partly against her father too. Celebrities get to do rebellion in more extreme fashions, but the idea is the same.
But is negative rebellion necessary? And is the road often a dangerous one? In the case of Cyrus, it could be. In her desire to separate herself from cute Miley Cyrus, daughter of Billy Ray, and as far away from Hannah Montana as possible, she’s becoming more risqué in every way possible.
The irony is that Cyrus’ actions are far from mature. And they don’t demonstrate that she’s growing up? The video itself doesn’t reflect maturity.
Ladies, establishing independence or distancing yourself from your childhood doesn’t have to lead you down the wrong path.
What do you ladies think about this video? Do you ever find yourself rebelling against your childhood or parents?
