Miley Cyrus has revealed that she’s given up the weed and the booze and rekindled her relationship with former fiancé Liam Hemsworth. The star has admitted that her wild partying and love of pot was distorting her view on the world and putting a wedge between her and Liam.
What is extraordinary, however, is that, although Miley has only been clean for 3 weeks, her entire attitude has changed, and she’s gone from the reckless, obnoxious diva that she was, and reverted to the nice, young woman that she was when still under the rule of Disney (but we’ll discuss that a little later).
She is now seeing the world for what it truly is, and is willing to take everything she has done on the chin without having adolescent strops. Granted, she never did anything illegal, except possibly the smoking a joint live on stage, but she was not being a good role model to the girls who idolize her, parading round in costumes that would make even Sticky Vicky cringe and showing us more of her pubic bone than we really wanted to see.
However, she was young at the time, naive, stupid and had just left the sterile clutches of Disney, where if the rules on showing skin get any stricter, everyone will be wearing Burkas.
She has also revealed she is working on new material, which is nice, as her last album was released in 2015, and with a more grown up view of the world, this could be her breakthrough into adult pop, possibly putting her on a par with a younger Madonna in terms of popularity when she released Holiday.
Miley has also revealed that she and Liam had to ‘fall in love again’, but this time with the real people, not the boozed up, stoned personas they fell in love with to begin with.
It does lead us, once again, to question the curse of Disney. Every single one of their major exports has gone off the rails, or committed suicide or serious crime.
Disney seems to have a lot to answer for, as Miley, who is already seasoned in the celebrity lifestyle thanks to her father’s career, didn’t merely go off the rails, she went off the rails and took all of her passengers with her in some of the most amazingly baffling incidents we have ever seen. Not to mention the twerking with Robin Thicke, and that was enough to make any mother shudder with despair.
We then have Britney Spears who had her breakdown and shaved her head to avoid drug detection, Christina Aguilera, who went from wholesome household name with top atpping pop songs into someone your mother wouldn’t want to meet, then a Goth, then trying to act like a white woman in the ghetto, then feminist and ultimately a yoyo dieter who looks completely different from one week to the next.
The issue with Disney, is they seem to unleash these people on the world, but don’t give them any coaching on what to expect when they suddenly become not only a household name, but have the paparazzi chasing after them when all they want to do is go to the shop and buy toilet paper.
