Yesterday, Sir Elton John spoke candidly and harshly about Lady Gaga’s and Miley Cyrus’ current stations in the pop music world, implying that both were becoming subsumed by their personas. Gaga’s career, he said, is in a “dangerous place” right now and Miley is a “meltdown waiting to happen.” But Miley is more doomed.
Miley’s recent antics at the VMA’s have upset Elton John enough to where he haphazardly compares Miley’s trajectory to that of Lindsay Lohan and Michael Jackson, adding that her recent notoriety pumping her backside against Robin Thicke’s genital area only exacerbates the problem. Simply put: Here is a ledge. Here is Miley on the ledge. Here is “Wrecking Ball” whooshing towards number one. There goes Miley headfirst off the ledge. Glitter splashed the sidewalk.
And you, her fans, are partially to blame for this inevitable outcome unless you make a concerted effort to make her less popular than she is right now.
So if you do care about Miley Cyrus’s current mental state and her prolonged future on this earth as a functional adult take that into consideration before you download her music, attend her concerts, or sustain your idol worship. Otherwise, you might find your heroine protecting small dogs from phantoms and setting fires in a driveway.
Or you can just let her be 20-years-old and figure this out all on her own. The choice is yours, black sheep.
