To the list of women in the entertainment business I never thought I’d be talking about here, I am adding Miley Cyrus. She is in interesting company with Kim Kardashian on my list of ‘Seriously, don’t’. She landed on my list when she twerked her way into infamy and lost what little appeal she had left with people over the age of 20.
My ire with her was that she thought her image needed a facelift complete with skimpy outfits, that ‘can not unsee’ dance move and using her tongue as a photo prop every chance she got. I get that she wanted to make a statement, but the statement ‘I am not longer Hannah Montana’ could have been made in such a different way in my opinion.
This is not a ‘get off my lawn’ moment I am having here. But if I could talk to her for 5 minutes, I would explain to her that what is really interesting, and as she gets older—sexy, is for a woman to gain appeal without taking off her clothes or selling out onstage. Correct me if I am wrong, but she can actually sing.
Since her last performance I have been vaguely interested to see if she would turn around her media image and grow up a bit. Well, she redeemed herself by performing a sultry and powerful rendition of the Paul Simon favorite ‘50 Ways to Leave Your Lover’. She exuded power, respect, talent and emotion—all with her clothes on. I was impressed.
Start with a good foundation to build that slim and sleek look you are going for. Look better with your clothes ON. Start here.
