Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus continue to take it off, raunch it up and put out for the fans who have never stopped salivating. They follow in a long tradition of fame and stripping the includes the likes of Madona and Lady Gaga.
Cute, but now the 31 year old version of cute, Britney Spears is coming out with Work B*tch. Its going to be a hit because MTV wants it to be.The Instagram trailer previews Britney strutting her stuff surrounded by other females gyrating in exotic places in exotic ways. Blah, blah, blah.
The Hannah Montana Disney star, Miley Cyrus, produced a nude wrecking ball stunt that captured the male eyeballs of the world as well as those of disgusted mothers everywhere.The lyrics and song are good, but the video was about Miley’s body and nothing else. In fact she said about the video “I just want to look pretty”.
Forbes has called Miley brilliant because she has successfully thrown off the shackels of innocence and made herself into a full fledged, grown up superstar of the pop world. Brilliance may be an overstatement. If you are already a bit famous, stripping and smoking dope definitely gets you more media attention. Words like grown up and adult in this case certainly seem to refer to age and not behavior.
The former Hannah Montana’s latest contribution as a role model to youth everywhere was her admonition that marijuana is the best drug on earth. She explains that it is a happy thing that makes you want to be with friends, unlike whatever it is you want when you do cocaine apparently.
Both Spears and Cyrus are following in the tradition of Madonna who’s “I want your sex”raised eyebrows, hackels, skirts, and mucho mucho media attention years ago. Its a very dubious tradition but it seems to be effective at least temporarily, if effective means lots of attention and money.
