So the big deal this week was Miley Cyrus being nasty at the VMA awards. Is it surprising? No, not really. Was it avant garde and edgy? No, it was more of the same from the Whorey Hordes of Hollywood. Miley is now a glommer-on to all the grime that seeps out of a town that used to take pride in its creativity and artistry. Now it holds the golden calf of conformity and the stuff it finds amusing, for most of us here in the real world, you can easily find in the sleaziest parts of town or in a cut rate by the hour motel on any number of state highways.
The entertainment industry is dead, and Miley Cyrus gyrating on MTV is just the lid being pulled off another can of nails for the coffin. For years now there has been little out of tinsel town for the rest of us here to watch, not getting our kicks, as those enlightened folks on the coasts do, by a continual parade of train wreck lives to watch so we don’t feel oh so bad about our own.
So, we get to watch yet another “teen idol” become just another tramp on the tube.
What would have been really gutsy and brave would be to refuse to throw yourself on the trash heap of Hollywood, and have a moral compass, principles and a sense of self worth that does not come from a 4 square inch piece of flesh that most of our mothers told us should be covered with a clean pair of underwear every day. When all you have is a golden twat to peddle then don’t be surprised when you are treated like a piece of meat, which Hollywood is happy to chew up and spit out.
