There’s this video going around today of Miley Cyrus bitching out the paparazzi after she leaves a Thai restaurant with Demi Lovato and I think the common opinion might be that she’s acting like her bratty self, but I actually felt a little sad for her while watching this.
Here’s the scenario: Miley arrived alone to the restaurant and valeted her car. As she was walking in to meet her friend, she kind of snapped at a couple of the photogs. There’s some video of Miley and Demi talking over dinner and from the look on Miley’s face, they’re discussing something very teenage and dramatic. I kept thinking that they looked like any two normal girlfriends eating dinner and complaining about the men in their life or what have you. After they were done eating, Demi and Miley left the restaurant together and the cameras started flashing. This is where things get a little bit uncomfortable for me.
After a moment or two of letting the paps have their way with them, Miley asks them to put their cameras down. Of course it was in her typical “10-year-old-birthday-girl-meets-a-raptor” tone, but it doesn’t take much to realize that she’s just over having her picture taken in that moment. Then Miley pulled her jacket over her face and stood next to a bush while she continued to wait for her car.
That’s so sad, you guys. I mean, in the grand scheme of things it’s certainly not that bad, but can you imagine hiding under your jacket in the bushes because a dozen grown men are sticking cameras in your faces and calling out things to antagonize you? And this is far from the worst paparazzi footage we’ve seen. I can’t imagine that it’s too big of a leap from this to freaking out on someone with an umbrella.
