After recent overexposure, fans wish for old Cyrus

Let’s all rewind to Miley Cyrus’s VMA performance a few months ago. She did an in-your-face, “look at me now” performance. What was Miley thinking? You don’t have to guess. She was probably thinking: “I’m not that Miley Cyrus anymore, and this ought to prove it.”

Well, Cyrus isn’t crazy, and she isn’t stupid. And she is certainly not talentless. I respect her for trying out new things and being different, but she is definitely trying too hard.

The sad truth is, Miley came into the spotlight as a child, and that’s how everyone viewed her as. A Disney prodigy. Now, as she is trying to find herself as an adult, the world is watching her every move.

She’s still really talented and beautiful. She was a clean cut girl. I really don’t know what happened to her, but I personally think that the blame should be rested upon the shoulders of her parents for not properly guiding her.

Cyrus comes off as one of those teens who got everything she wanted in life; she was never told “no” or “stop” by her parents. Even now, her divorced parents still encourage every action she takes. Some people think that the fame is getting to her, which explains why her behavior is trashy and impulsive, and others think that whatever she is doing is causing her more fame. In my opinion, I agree with both.

Take a child star like Hilary Duff. She turned out fine, and she had good parents who helped her stay grounded. She stated once that nobody would look out better for her than her parents and didn’t make decisions without them even when she was old enough to.

If this is her way of shedding her Hannah Montana image, which I can understand as a growing star that she would like to do, I think there are better ways of going about it. I don’t think cutting your hair, shaving it, bleaching it blonde and engaging in obscene public performances is very effective. Sure, you shed the image, but you make a mess of yourself in the process.

“Bangerz” dropped on Oct. 4 and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s 200 list, selling 270,000 copies in its first week according to Billboard. The album features her two hits “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop” as well as 11 other original tracks. There is such a vast variety of genres that permeate the album that it’s hard to get sick of listening to it. Song styles such as ballads, pop tracks, rap and even a little bit of country are all featured on the album.

In an recent interview with Ellen Degeneres, Miley talked about her new album “Bangerz” and how a few songs were written about her ex-fiance, Liam Hemsworth. Miley claims that she is completely over Liam, and that she “doesn’t even think about him.”

Speaking of Miley and relationships, there seems to be talk in the news that she has been seeing someone new, 26 year old Rolling Stones photographer Theo Wenner. This has sparked up some controversy on whether or not Cyrus had been with Wenner while Hemsworth and Cyrus were still engaged.

Although she does some of the craziest, most bizarre things, (like twerking on Robin Thicke) she’s got everyone talking. She still is a household name, and if thats how Miley wants to live, then maybe we should let her.

But with everything leading up to that, I still really miss the “old” Miley.
