Miley Cyrus….Role Model?

Ok…allow me to get on my soapbox for a minute here.  A Year or two ago,famed photographer Annie Leibovitz took some pictures of Miley Cyrus for Vanity Fair.  In those pictures she was topless but covered with a sheet and in my opinion looked great and was a beautiful photograph  as you can see here…
People went mental saying how wrong it was and how this girl is supposed to be a role model for young girls and it’s too provocative and they even went as far as to call it “Child porn” in some cases.
Fast Forward to the 2010 Much Music Video Awards, which were held in Toronto last night with a now 17 year old Miley as host.  She opened the show with this conservative ensemble….
Ummmm….what?  How is this better?  What kind of example is she setting for todays young girls by getting her stage outfits at the same stores that “Mercedes” the local stripper gets her clothes?  I’m sorry but the whole double standard needs to stop.  Either she’s a wholesome child star or a sex-pot-pop star.  If a bear back was too provocative for 15-16 year old Miley…how is this sexually charged outfit any better for the 17 year old version.  I wonder how long it will be before she trainwrecks a-la Lindsay Lohan?  it’s all a matter of time.

Climbing down now 🙂

Bullock and B.A. Baracus

Hello loyal readership,
Ok..I know I probably don’t have “Loyal readers” but thanks for stopping by.
Couple of things in this post from the last week or so
First, this “kiss” between Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johanssen
Can I just say.  MEH  Now I love me a little girl-girl action…but this has to be the most awkward kiss I’ve ever seen.  Not Sexy.  AT all.  Which is a pitty because these are two of the most beautiful women in Hollywood today.  FAIL
Next…The Release today of the New A-Team

movie that comes out today.  I’m excited about it.  I loved the show when I was a kid and I still have a little nostalgic twinge whenever I hear those drums at the beginning credits.  News related to this is I guess Mr. T Doesn’t like the fact that people die in the movie version.  Even when I was a kid and watching the show for the first time, I thought it was a little far fetched that they would fire off all of those bullets and nobody got hurt or even grazed.  You could even flip a car right over onto it’s roof and no matter what, the badguys would crawl out of the open windows, uninjured and run back to their hideout defeated and without as much as a grazing flesh wound from the hundreds of rounds of M-16 ammo that were hitting the ground all around them.  Mr. T..you are the shit, a pop culture icon and a major league badass.  But this whole thing of you not liking that people die in a movie remake of a TV show you starred in 30 years ago sounds more like Sour grapes than a moral stance.  Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll be asked to cameo in the sequel.  And I guarantee, if this think makes any money at all there will be a sequel.

Oh and in honour of the release of the A-Team today, I present this…

An Actual vehicle here in the great city of Guelph that is actually driven by someone.  I found it while walking home this morning at 6am and snapped a photo of it with my camera phone….enjoy
