And like Joker stated, they were interviewing kid who used to idolize her that are now shocked.

Don't give me the, "She didn't ask to be a role model" carp either. When you step into the lime light as she has, it comes with the teritory, and you have the responsibility to own up to it.

Especially in her case, she built her fame on kids, unlike "lady" gagg gagg, who built her image on shock.

I have to disagree DD, my understanding is that she made a name for herself writing songs for other recording artists, and then by her involvement with LBGT activism and other philanthropic projects.

But that by no means equates to everyone loving her music, I totally get that.

I am referring to her "Image", I had never heard of her ( and I would guess the average person on the street too) until she started performing.

whole Hannah Montana thing was out there and that skyrocketed her to teeny bop fame. Her dad was part of that too.

What I take issue with is the manner in which she has decided to show the world she's all grown up. But then I am reminded that Harry Potter did a nude scene on broadway to proclaim his coming of age so what's a foam finger in the great grand scheme of things.

Personally, I think she's probably done more harm than good to her image and career but who am I to say?

There's a big difference between doing a nude scene in a Broadway production and prancing around in one's underwear making obscene gestures with an oversized foam finger, IMO. I don't recall Daniel Radcliffe bumping and grinding against other cast members.

Actually, he does quite graphically in Kill Your Darlings. Given both he and Miley were 'performing'. At least Daniel's is in a film you have to pay to see, not on a supposedly family friendly tv program.

I'd like to know what her fiance thinks about this whole mess. He's been pretty quiet about all of this. (Probably because he has a new movie to promote.)

I saw Daniel Radcliffe in both Equus and How to Succeed in Business on broadway, and was impressed with his talent (but not the amount of screaming 12-year old girls in the theater.) He took those roles seriously, and it really didn't seem gratuitous at all. This 3-ring circus is the epitome of "not serious," and is so much more designed to shock and show off than a role in a (very somber) broadway play...

So I gather that everyone agrees that Miley and her career planning team may have made a slight miscalculation in determining a manner in which to shed her Hannah Montanah alter ego image and establish her as serious and adult type "arteest"?

I have to say, the display she made of herself was everything but "adult," unless, of course, you made the argument that the "adult" part would be the same definition of the one used for stores along the highway with lots of purple neon and with whited out windows.

Please don't misinterpret what I'm trying to say as far as child actors chosing how to show that they've come of age.

I think Daniel is a serious actor who takes on roles that include sex as part of the storyline rather than gratuitously.

Even keeping in mind the difference between an actor and a singer, it appears to me that Miley is in it for the shock value with an overwhelming sprinkling of 'I can do whatever I damn well please' thrown in. Her 'performance' was shocking and has generated tons of reactions that keep her in the limelight. She doesn't seem to mind the ugly glare that it's cast on her.

Actually, she might have had better success had she chosen to go that route. At least that would have had a definable purpose. I still havent figured out the purpose of this other ....."thing".

It appears to me, Miley has accomplished what she set out to, regardless of the manner in doing so.

Here we are three days later, still dicussing her, but not a word about Macklemore and group's great performance and message, as well as Bruno Mars fantasic performance that evening, both of which deserve far more attention and applause.

Yet when it comes to one's Q score, Miley's is now off the charts thanks to her VMA stunts, and us not being able to stop talking about her...

I think it's funny you can make a public display on national prime time TV, but you are still limited by the FCC on what words you can use without being bleeped out. crazy
