It’s been about 3 minutes since we’ve heard the latest Mileyisms, complaints, shock etc. so the ODDMAN has brought you some more. There are two videos that I hope you have the time to watch. One is a take on her VMA performance and the other comment’s on her current public personae. Both are good. Now I know absolutely nothing about rap music, it’s not something that I’m interested in, but this guy does make a lot of sense about Miley. It’s up to you to agree or disagree. So on with the circus with Miley as the headliner.
A word from me on the Miley circus: Whatever. I think that Miley is making a mistake in her career with the silly antics. The publicity that she is creating is not the kind that generates sales, but strictly to increase exposure in the media. Media exposure doesn’t necessarily translate into sales unless it is the right kind of exposure done with the right timing. That is why you hire media handlers.
The outcry over her twerking at the VMA, silly appearance, tattoos etc is no different that the rock/pop stars of old. Bowie and the glam rockers, Elton John, KISS, Alice Cooper, the era of bad boy rock band antics like The Who, G&R’s legendary drinking, Lady Gaga and her meat outfit, all screamed out for attention. Madonna has reinvented herself so many times I’m not sure if she knows who she is. All of them have/had the talent, drive and timing to succeed.
Only time will allow us to see if Miley has enough talent to survive or if she will have an adult singing career length of a boy band supernova. She’s no longer a cute 16 year old girl with a lot of tweenie girls buying her CD’s. She is an adult and the tweens are looking at/for the next new thing. It’ll be kind of fun to watch if she has the talent to thrive in the music industry as an adult performer or if she’ll be reduced to a side show act. I don’t know. She probably has enough money stashed away not to ever worry again, so I wish her all the best. Who knows, she could just be running the greatest gag on everyone else in her young life.
