Miley Cyrus – good or bad?

First of all I would like to say that I'm not a Miley fan, I only know like 5 songs she has sung (including the Jolene cover). I used to hate her back then.
Okay... so everybody has been talking about the performance Miley Cyrus gave at the VMA 2013 some days ago – and I do understand why. We all do. 

But a lot of people are saying that she is a slut and to them I ask;

– How does a performance show who she is in private? It's like believing that reality tv stars are like that at home.

– Even if she was a slut, how does that effect your life? Does she decide what you can and can not do?

– If you see someone do something, do you do it? If you see a violent movie do you go out and kill someone? People should not always use celebrities as their role models for life decisions.

– What about Madonna? Britney? Xtina? Lady Gaga? Rihanna? Katy Perry? Jennifer Lopez? And everyone else who have performed in almost no clothing and transformed from child star to teen/adult pop?

– Wasn't it entertaining? People can barely remember that Lady Gaga and N*Sync showed up.

– Okay, it wasn't appropriate for small kids but 1) should they watch VMA in the first place with all those other sexual artists + videos and 2) I don't think those kids are Miley's target anymore.

– Do you realize that you are bringing her views and searches by watching/writing about her?

– It's her show. She was probably asked/paid to do it and she's relevant. Why can't she decide how to perform? Does Marilyn Manson change his performances because some people dislike them? Does Rihanna, who's show is very much like this?

– Would you react different if it was some hot male singer/actor with no shirt on grinding with beautiful women?

It's not that new, too be honest.

My personal opinions
On the performance: It was weird, and trashy. It too much, and over the top. But I kinda liked it, because she looked like she had fun and didn't give a fuck. It's pure shock value in my opinion and she is getting a fuck load of attention from this "stunt".

On "We Can't Stop" song: At first it sounded very generic, but after a while it grew on me and it's stuck in my head. Especially the "might get some na OH!" and "la da di da di we like to party" parts. It's catchy. But the lyrics are stupid at times. And empowering at other times. + Her voice is better for "Jolene" songs.

On the WCS video: It's beautiful. I really like it, even tho I know it's 100% random, product placement and sex appeal. It looks good. There's a lot going on there.

On her look: She looks awesome. She has a nice body. I love her style at the moment, she has nice skin and natural makeup. She has a very youthful and androgynous look to her. It looks unique and she is rocking the hurr.
+ She looks a bit like the Olsen twins. She doesn't really have an ass. And she should learn how to keep the tongue inside her mouth sometimes.

Being a Loner

Image from AgentXPQ's video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjxggGYHYOk

Hello there! I came home from Poland (and Ukraine) some weeks ago and I started in school again (in 3.l!) three days ago. I hope you've enjoyed your summer :) I'm home alone right now and thought I would share some quick thoughts. Nope, my parents came home now... Oh. Okay I'll go on.

Through high school I feel like I've gone through some stages:

2011-2012 1.g: the weird hyperactive colourful girl (I acted like a child and talked a lot)

2012-2013 2.g the depressed revengeful girl (I acted sad and I argued with people, I also changed class because I wanted people with higher working standard)

2013-2014 3.g: the ??? girl

I'm 18 years old now, but I've never felt my real age. I always feel like I'm either 10, 40 or 80... And I also feel like I'm neither a girl or a boy, I somehow feel "genderless" if you can call it that. I also don't fit in anywhere, and I have 2-3 friends whom I trust more than anyone else.
When I'm in school I don't really talk/say anything unless I'm spoken to or someone needs help. Many students have thought I was angry, shy, weird, insane and the teachers worried I might have some mental problems. To this I ask:

– Is it bad to be alone by choice?
– Is it good to force people through "painful" and useless interaction?
– Who am I and what is identity?
– Are you only worried because I'm a fairly good looking female? I've seen many "average" or bad looking boys and girls being alone not getting anyone worked up about them. Shallow fucks people are.
– Can I be an individual in this world of high school? Or do I have to be judged by the people you are surrounded by?
– Do I have to like parties and drugs and specific music/clothing to be normal?

I used to feel bad for walking around alone, reading/working/listening to music. But I've read about it, watched some videos, talked to my friends and a therapist and I think that I'm more secure now. Just a bit, I still have my shitty days, but I sure as fuck won't let people walk all over me like they used to do.

Some links you might find interesting:

And this is a very relevant question by user Diane:

I just can't relate to other people my age. I don't understand why?

I'm a 14 year old girl. I'm quiet and I only speak when I have something to say. People are repelled by me for some reason. It's like I can't even express my interests without everyone within a 20 foot radius staring at me like I just grew a second head. I just can't relate to my peers. I get no enjoyment out of watching or playing sports. I can't talk about my favorite shows without people going up in arms about my far more advanced knowledge on the subject. I enjoy reading and writing more than watching television or playing video games. For the most part my opinion on things is ignored. I don't drop my problems on other people. I enjoy learning about the different cultures of the world. That seems to repel people as well. Gossip is a load of crap in my opinion. The only people that actually seem to like me are my teachers. I just don't understand it!

So this was today's blogpost.
I hope you all get confident in how you are and find happiness :)
