I don't get it. She is of age. She is at free will to do what she wants. If parents are upset because she 'was' a child star, they must realize that she no longer is a child. And if it bothers them for the sake of their child - then it's their job as the parent to monitor what their child see's and does.
It's not Miley's job to watch what she does for the sake of your kids.
I've saw tons of post on here, and other sites where people are slamming her for her looks, the way she 'danced' , her tounge, and everything else.... Why just shame her for what she did. I saw tons of other back up dancers for other artist - that made my stomach turn. They had overly large fat cellulite butts and were tossing them all over, and some who were dressed in less , that I could have gone with out seeing.
Lady gaga, ( make me gag) no one slammed her. When has she ever really done anything that was truly interesting and not just over the top insanity?
I say let Miley be. I don't think she really cares what any of us think. She's still getting paid and enjoying her life, no matter what anyone says.
Besides, I bet she did that to put her self in the headlines and draw attention to herself. ANd guess what, it worked! She is on all the headlines, on tons of forums, magazines, and even top on the google search... So, looks like Miley is pretty damn smart - she knows how to get top ratings for herself.
Sure, in some eye's it can be viewed as trashy, but it still has everyone talking about her!
