When Miley Cyrus ditched that whole Disney image, she apparently left a lot of her fans behind too. Sales for “Can’t Be Tamed,” Miley’s racy new album, are kind of pathetic for her – the album sold 72% less copies than her debut album, “Breakaway,” did in its first week. This drastic drop can be at least somewhat attributed to confusing her young fans. The New York Times spoke with Perry Hamm, an 11-year-old girl, about Miley’s new image:
“I don’t know what was going on in her head. I feel like she acts 25. She looks so old. She is too old for herself.”
Too old for herself indeed.
I think this is a fine line. Miley’s 17, so she’s not that little Hannah Montana bitch anymore, and I can’t blame her for wanting to do her own thing. On the other hand, she does (or did, as the case may be) have a remarkable amount of children who look up to her. What do you guys think? Should Miley just do what she feels or mellow out for the kids?
