Why though? What is so wrong, aside from the fact they are both minors and have been caught in scandals?

In my opinion Miley Cyrus is a puke!! She is ugly and just a gross human! I mean, the only reason she is famous, is because of Billy Ray, and he is famous from one lousy song... Not many albums or anything like AC/DC or even George Strait! There is not even a comparison!


Phelps, I used to hate him, but after I found out he likes to get stoned, I love him!!! All my friends and most of my family do it, so hey man!! Give him a medal!! I am with the cigar company wanting to make him their spokesperson, go for it fish boy!

Miley's parents should be stepping in on MANY levels when it comes to their daughter. She is growing up, yet she is STILL a child in many levels and despite being a teenager.

Young girls still look up to her and I don't see where a Teen Choice Award nomination is that far off the mark.

With Michael Phelps, however, it's a different story. This is not his first batch of troubles, and despite his pleas and apologies (which I personally see as MORE an attempt to bring back good PR for himself and his career), he screwed up. Were this man not a role model to kids, I could not care less that he had smoked weed.

But he is one and I'm sorry, but his nomination for a TCA is wrong.

I think we as parents need to be the role models for our kids, not these rich famous people. 

I agree--

You support minors smoking pot, but you are against a teen girl releasing inappropriate photos to the media?

Double standard much?

 I watched the Grammys and was HIGHLY disappointed. She was boring, dull and ordinary. She'll be a has been in the dollar bin soon. As far as Michael Phelps, he's human, EVERYONE of us has faults. I say YAY him..NAY her..dull and boring, just like her has been dad with the bad wig doo.

How is Miley called out for being a bad influence but the girl who sang a song about bicuriosity and the guy who beat up his girlfriend were left out?

Kids don't even know what pot is (or they shouldn't anyways), and I don't even know what Miley could have done to have scored a bad rep (aside from that one little dance she did on whatever awards show it was that was geared for ADULTS).

singing about bisexuality is bad?

i don't think the photos of miley were a big deal. eh.
