It’s time for another segment of “Thrown under the Bus”.
Today’s victim: Miley Cyrus, aka Cyrus the Virus
By now, we’ve all seen or heard about the infamous Video Music Awards (known as the VMA’s) performance by former Hannah Montanna pop idol, Miley Cyrus.
The same Miley who got thrown under the bus.
Millions-literally millions-of everyday people were tweeting, facebooking, instagramming, you-tubing and gossiping about this brazen “twerking” performance she did with singer Robin Thicke (who was wearing the ugliest black-and-white striped pantsuit I’ve ever seen, by the way).
Hopefully this outfit doesn’t catch on to the fellas out there.
But I digress.
If you haven’t checked it out yet (the performance that is), go to You Tube and type in “Miley Cyrus VMA performance” to get an idea of what I’m talking about (although the picture above says it all).
Where most people use this kind of event as an opportunity to look down on a celebrity and revel in their public downgrading, I opt to see what lessons can be learned.
Because everything holds a lesson.
Since time is of the essence, I’ll get right down to it:
Lesson #1: We are all human. People (including the ones pointing the finger at Miley) all go through phases. I don’t know Miley, but it looks like she’s in the midst of a deep valley in her life. But we’ve all been there in one way or another. She was a child superstar starting at an early age. Who knows what she’s dealing with personally?
The issue I take with people is that they love to build people up so they can knock them down to their level again just so they can say, hey, they’re no better than I am! We need to stop judgin people when we are no better. Just because you didn’t do exactly what she did doesn’t mean you are somehow better. Raise your self-esteem and you won’t feel the need to look for reasons to look down on anyone to make yourself feel better.
Lesson #2: Make getting to know yourself your #1 priority. The ancient people of the earth said to “know thyself”. Find out who you are, what your value and belief systems are and what your price is. As comedian Dave Chapelle said, know your price and if the price gets too high, you know what to do” (paraphrased).
Miley may not know her price yet. And neither do the black girls dancing and twerking onstage with her wearing teddy bear suits.
And Robin Thicke’s wardrobe stylist definitely didn’t know his/her price.
Lesson #3: People need to get a life. Really. Why is this big news? See, when your life is so boring and miserable and unmeaningful, you have the time and attention to worry about celebrities and what they’re doing. What are YOU doing? What’s going on in YOUR life?
Here’s a little tip: Instead of pissing away time on frivolous stuff like Hollywood Celebrities, music award shows, reaity t.v., and the like, how about getting off your butt and fixing your life? Because there’s some area of your life that could be better-be it financial, emotional, relationships, or social. How you choose to spend your time and what you spend time talking about determines your future. Choose wisely!
But wait…there’s more…
PSA (Public service announcement): Parents please give a damn about your children!
No one else is talking about this, but I just gotta say it:
Who the HELL are all these screaming kids (automatons) in the audience?!!!! Where are their parents? Why does no adult care enough not to let them go to some show where their young minds are LITERALLY being programmed with-let’s just call it what it is: PEDOPHILLIC subliminal messages and OVERT and OVERSEXUAL words and messages?!!!
Study psychology and the human mind. Your children are being seduced and their subconscious minds are manipulated to meet the agenda of the people behind the scenes pulling the strings?
Think about it: why would they allow all this stuff on these award shows to be approved to a rated G audience when it’s obviously rated X?
Remember Nikki Minaj and Little Wayne’s performance where she gave him a lap dance on stage in front of an audinece of kids? And when seh took the dildo and thrust it through her legs and toward the audience?
And that’s just 2 examples.
Bottom line, Miley’s 2013 stage rompings pales in comparison to some stuff that went on onstage of years past.
Do I agree with her performance actions? No. Did I find it entertaining? No. But that’s not the point of this post. This isn’t about judging Miley, Robin, or anyone else involved. It’s about what lessons can be gleaned from this.
Come on, parents! Get your behinds off Facebook, Twitter and whatever else you make more important than your so-called most precious commodities: your chidren! Care! Stop being so selfish.
And by the way, I can understand if you let your kids watch the performance on t.v. in order to use it as a teaching lesson. Use it to school your kids on what not to do and why.
I guess it’s hard to be a good parent when you’re brainwashed yourself.
Enjoy your holiday weekend,
Until next time.
