You can’t judge a book by its cover
At this week’s Billboard Music Awards, Miley Cyrus shows up with no shame in her new found sexually-charged image. She turned red carpet heads in what some would call “just a blazer” that didn’t leave much to the imagination. The pop icon left Hannah Montana and her pants in the dust. She was scrutinized by many, which left her feeling an increasing pressure from her industry. Cyrus fought back the media by taking a pro-sex stance: “The girls that really base how much they’re worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody that makes me really sad because sex is actually really beautiful. It’s the only way we create, and it’s the only way the world keeps going.”
Ironically, the once “innocent” role model for young teenagers seems to be upset with girls basing their worth on sexual favors, yet she shows up to a nation-wide award show looking as if she was looking for more than an award that night.
While she is coming into womanhood, sexually or otherwise, with her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, she is maintaining her career, and it hasn’t been effortless. Maybe we can learn not to judge a book by its cover because Cyrus is taking a stance and speaking out to parents about sexually educating their children. She commented, “It’s ignorant not to talk to your kids about it or not make it seem as magical or cool as it actually is.” Even though her image may not seem so positive at this time, Cyrus has good intent in trying to bring sexual awareness to parents and teens.
