Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz tour has been quite controversial. So much so that reportedly tickets sales have gone down, many empty seats at the venues, and parents of under age children started demanding a refund or selling their tickets on eBay. Many contribute it to the overly exposed Miley Cyrus and the alleged borderline x-rated antics performed on stage. Not many parents can explain why Hannah Montana is twerking and pretending to perform oral sex on a man dressed in a Bill Clinton mask to a nine-year-old or why Miley Cyrus, scantily dressed, is riding a gigantic hotdog on stage. The latest news on the Bangerz tour was reported by the Hollywood Reporter during the performance of her song Adore You at the Los Angeles Staples Center. Miley reached for her girlfriend Katy Perry in the audience for an intimate kiss. Miley then expressed to her fans she liked kissing Katy.
Miley who was just reported in the New York Daily News to allegedly be romantically linked with actor Jared Leto, who is 20 years her senior. Katy Perry, according to the New York Daily News, is allegedly engaged to music artist John Mayer. Reportedly Katy and John had an on again off again relationship and giving it another go round. Many would say when trying to work on a union with a man, it might not be such a great idea to make out with a girlfriend during a concert in front of small children for the world to witness.
Miley is no stranger to the publicity machine. Some are speculating if the public display of intimacy with Katy Perry is, indeed, a blossoming relationship or just another sex antic thought up by the Cyrus PR machine. Both women are involved in relationships, but enjoy making out in front of minors with one another. Once again, parents are left trying to figure out who Miley Cyrus is and why did they bring their child to this racy concert expecting to see a snippet of Hannah Montana. It has not been a secret that Cyrus really wants to do away with her wholesome Disney Hannah Montana image. She has possibly gone to the extreme to show her fans she is all grown up now. The kiss was not just a peck. It demonstrated affection and intimacy leading the audience to question if Miley Cyrus is dating Katy Perry.
Pretty soon parents will get the memo that the Bangerz tour is not for anyone under the age of 18. And fans who are of an appropriate age understand young Miley Cyrus has, indeed, blossomed into a grown woman who has been engaged to marry, has lost love, has made millions of dollars, and who has seen the world before the ripe age of 30. Many of Miley Cyrus’s fans are reportedly bored with the over-the-top stunts. She is viewed by much of the industry as a talented vocalist with a lot of talent. Unfortunately, it’s been overshadowed. If she would just sing the powerful Dolly Parton cover tune Jolene that she performs so beautifully, making out with Katy Perry for possible shock value would not be necessary. Just sing…that’s what people paid to see.
