Miley, You’re a Good Girl #twerk

11 Sep

 “How dare she try to use sex to sell pop music….”

Miley Cyrus’s performance at the VMA’s this year was a little shocking, to say the least, and yes I admit that I was one of those people slut shaming her for a week, saying that she was trying too hard, etc. Miley Cyrus, V Magazine, May 2013

And you know, the fact that she may be trying too hard (and the fact that it was all a publicity stunt which I still think is genius), is not her fault. Jon LaJoie, a comedian, explains it all in his song “Miley, You’re a Good Girl”.

Though he claims it to only be comedy, he brings up such a good point in the chorus:

“We want topless women in our music videos

We want pop stars acting like they’re in a porno

We want it and we always get what we ask for

But when Miley does it we say “Oh my God No!!”

And the last two lines of the second verse:

“And we’ll be cool with videos with women prancing around naked

And it won’t be sexist as long as the song’s a number 1 hit”

So I guess what I’m saying is although I don’t particularly like Miley’s constant twerking or her need to stick her tongue out every five seconds while wearing barely any clothing, I can’t say that she’s an awful person for doing it.

Thoughts?
