I have to just say that I am SICK TO DEATH of the whole Miley cyrus thing!!!!!! Everywhere you look you see her face!!! She doesn't seem to have the talent to back up the hype, she's cute, but then all young girls are cute. I thank God that my Daughter doesn't by into the Hannah Montana phenomenon, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Mylie toilet paper, her face is on everything else!!!!!!!!AngryAngryAngryAngry Ad High School Musical and I could hit the wall!!!!!!!

I agree with you, Momma!

Know who else I'm done with? 

Beyonce.

And Oprah.

No, BigMomma, it isn't just you...our youth missed Billy Ray, so it may be hard for them to get in line with us about the 'Achy Breaky Heart'-kid's daughter...I haven't heard anything spectacular by her - she IS talented, but then again, she comes from a family with it in their genes...
I'll toss in something I consider a bid odd...
Seems that country-oriented/influenced music catches kids when they are young (is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that?). Our youngest daughter was a huge 'Dixie Chicks' fan, strangely enough. Her first album (excuse me...CD) was an early Dixie Chicks release.

Give her 5 years and she'll be the next Paris, or Britney, or Lindsay, or Olson twin 'trainwreck'....

Same here, Big Momma!!!
 
I'm also really disturbed by the stories of parents who have gotten into trouble, trying to get their children Hannah Montana tickets.  Didn't one child write a fake essay on how her father was in Iraq, etc when it wasn't true at all?  Then, when questioned the mom said, "Nobody said that the essay had to be true."  Angry  What the heck is wrong with people?

Teen pop stars are not a new phenomenon.
 
Is it the star, the marketing, or the indulgent parents that are the most offensive?
 
My opinion is that it's the latter two, which feed off of each other.

Agreed, Big Momma.

And, like WIld Starchild, I don't even LOOK for stories about her but there she is, plastered everywhere.
 
I also wish Mariah Carey would go away.

I woke up an hour ago, and turned on the news.  I had to change the channel three times to find a news channel that was not airing the same Miley Cyrus story AT THAT SAME MOMENT!!!
 
Then, when I turned on my computer, there was the same story at the top of my home page.
 
If anyone's interested, the story was about her embarrassment over Vanity Fair's use of the semi-nude photos that she herself posed for!!

Yeah, Thor.  I'm sure it was someone else's fault that she took those pictures and signed the release!  But wait!  If she's not 18 yet, then Daddy must have signed the release.  Hmmmmm.

Supposedly her father was there during the shoot.
 
I've only seen two of the photos, not that I'm all that interested but as you've said they're ALL OVER the news.
 
I don't see what the controversy is about.  Her back is showing in one photo, big woop.  It's not sexual - however it seems that ~someone~ wants to make us think that it is.
 
The other photo has her draped across her father.  It's clearly not a candid photo.
 
...somehow this reminds me of the old Brooke Shields Calvin Klein jeans ads from 1978ish.

I'm sure Miley and Billy had no problems depositing the big fat check that went along with those pictures.

All I can say is that I wouldn't want my 15 year old Daughter to pose like that. Miley can do anything she pleases just as soon as she stops marketing to little girls.

alleged role models for young girls these days are an embarrassing failure.
kids look up to these girls no matter what parents do, there is a responsibility that these young ladies should answer to.

It's the parents!  I read a great Vanity Fair article a few months back about the mothers of Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton.  They are all living vicariously through their daughters, and each of them wants to be famous in her own right.  Spears' mother was supposed to have a reality show, but I think that got put on hold at about the same time her contract to write a book on HOW TO RAISE CHILDREN (I sh*t you not), to be published by some Christian company, got cancelled due to daughter No. 2 announcing she was preggers.

She probably has a good manager, who probably realizes that stars such as her fade very quickly, and is taking measures to insure that she'll be marketable to an older audience in the near future.  At some point, she'll admit that she's "taking her career in a new direction"---one that allows her "to become a woman", and "express her sexuality".
 
Janet Jackson did it.  Britney Spears did it.  They all do it.

Same here, and I'm an old pervert. I don't see anything overtly sexual in these pictures. I can go to a public beach any day of the week and see girls even younger showing more skin and nobody bats an eye.
 
All of the screaming is just part of our imbecilic celebrity-centric, pedophilia-obsessed society.

Bare back, dissheveled hair, satin sheets...it's apparent she hasn't just woken up and is preparing to go to school.  Of course she's not nude (probably just because she's 15 and that would be illegal), but of course it's sexual!!  Whether or not you get off on it, is one thing...but it was meant to be sexual, and it is.
 
I don't even trust that Cyrus is embarrassed by the photo, as she claims to be.  I think she's just trying to straddle the line between her current teen idol career and her future one as the Hillary Duff/Lindsay Lohan/Britney Spears replacement.  Outwardly, she says "Ooooh!!  I'm so embarrassed!!".  Secretly, she says "Good move!" and "I'm a naughty girl."

I've got a reputation as a bit of a prude, and yet I still don't see the photo as sexual.  Provocative, yes.  Sexual? Still no, not in my eyes. 
 
It's more artsy than anything else, and subject to perception.  My perception of the photo's message differs from the majority, it seems.
 
I suspect that all this controversy has convinced many to hold a suspicious opinion, when they otherwise might not. 
 
The girl likely is embarrassed because of this insistence that the photo implies something naughty; perhaps alluding to Britney Spears in the 'Oops I Did It Again' days.

I just saw that Annie Liebowitz took those photos. She's been in the business over 40 years. She wouldn't do cheesy work.

I didn't think it was that bad, either. She looks very exotic (not in an exotic dancer way) but a mysterious exotic look.
