Manipulated by the mouse
Judging by the number of people who are checking out my humble blog for news of Hannah Montana, I'm guessing that this "scandal" is manufactured and will make Disney, Vanity Fair and Miley Cyrus bushels of cash.
First, the "nude" photo itself is ridiculously modest. Miley Cyrus is as nude as she is under jeans and a blouse. For god's sake, she's covered with a sheet, and is only "nude" in the small, dirty minds of those who would think of her that way. You can see "nuder" fifteen years olds on any beach in America.
Second, Disney accuses Vanity Fair of making money by taking advantage of a 15 year old. And how many years has Disney exploited this pre-teen for their benefit.
Third, Miley Cyrus is on the cusp on not being a wholesome pre-teen anymore, and in America, my friends. a wholesome teenager just doesn't sell. Disney and Cyrus are working hard to make their young starlet into a vixen.
Fourth, this is the nonsense that America is working at when we are struggling with war, poverty, hunger, torture, loss of liberty, criminal leaders, and hundreds of other problems that we don't have to worry about if we are concentrating on the bare shoulders of Hannah Montana.
This is a show business kid, and you know what Steely Dan says about show business kids, "making movies of themselves. You know they don't give a fuck about anybody else."
