A little context before we begin. First off, yes, we’re still talking about Miley Cyrus and the fallout from her VMAs performance. Today is the last day, promise. Also, I GChat with my father on a daily basis, usually about politics, movies, whatever. He’s what they call “right wing,” watches a lot of Fox News, and is fairly conservative when it comes to his understanding of current popular culture. He’s feverishly anti-hip-hop, and refuses to acknowledge that someone like Kanye West has any talent whatsoever. He has a 10-year-old niece, Maya, who he’s very close to, and who is completely obsessed with Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus. He’s told me in the past that this disturbs him.
Dad: what do you say about mileys performance ?
pretty outrageous stuff
what does Maya say about it
Dad: when I think that Maya likes her
right, and milions like her
when u think that she likes her what
it makes you cringe?
Dad: of course, not a very good role model is she
shes just a clueless empty headed bitch
me: maya needs to move on
the ‘liberal’ mindset
lacking in any kind of value system
Dad: trashy culture is bad
me: sure, miley comes across as an idiot
Dad: kills the new generation, turns them into empty headed celebrity hungry freaks with no life of their own
me: she’s just trying to escape her goodie two shoes image by going the opposite route
its shock value
Dad: who is ?
Maya or Miley
Dad: she discovered that sex is much more lucrative
shes right of course
me: i dunno, she was preeeetttyyy lucrative before
she was selling tons of merchandise to young girls
Dad: but doing anything for money shows her character
me: she’s a little less marketable to her target demo now
Dad: this is a new thing, she said so, a big change, she has decide to go down this path
she wants to be madonna
and make hundreds of millions instead of just tens
Dad: but the way she talks and reacts to questions shows pretty much that she is driven only by her hunger for bigger success, she reminds me of a little puppet
her brain must be very tiny
or non existent
me: you’ve been reading interviews of hers?
Dad: only the reptilian part of the brain is developed obviously
i saw them on Fox
