Miley Cyrus' kissing spree: Why her defense was a missed opportunity
Image Credit: Carlos Alvarez/Getty ImagesOops, Miley Cyrus has done it again. And again. After simulating a kiss with a female backup dancer June 3 on Britain’s Got Talent, the 17-year-old was photographed June 5 in another (faux?) liplock while performing at the club G-A-Y, “London’s largest gay and Lesbian party,” which has hosted Madonna, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Björk, Lady Gaga, and the Spice Girls. On June 6, she got up close and personal at the Rock in Rio festival (pictured). In between, on June 4, Cyrus took to her official blog to defend her BGT performance. Let’s pretend for a moment that Miley couldn’t possibly have forseen that a 17-year-old Disney star simulating a same-sex kiss on television would steal the attention from the contestants– “there were some amazinnnggg acts (but of course no one could focus on that),” she writes — and go right to her defense, which is that she didn’t even kiss the girl.
“I promise you I did not kiss her and it is ridiculous that two entertainers cant even rock out with each other without the media making it some type of story. I really hope my fans are not disappointed in me because the truth is I did nothing wrong. I got up there and did my job which is to perform to the best of my ability. I just want to put an end to this right now and just say one thing to everyone out there making this performance such a big deal. GET OVER IT! NOTHING HAPPENED. THERE ARE WAYYYYYYY MORE IMPORTANT THINGS IN THE WORLD. Lets start focusing a little less on making up ignorant rumors and focus a little more on world peace!”
Anyone else wish Miley would have written, “I really hope my fans are not disappointed in me because the truth is, even if I had kissed her, I did nothing wrong.” At least then, her wild streak — she can’t be tamed! or be bothered to use apostrophes! — would have a purpose (other than attempting to prove that 17 isn’t too young to dress like Beyoncé). If Miley doesn’t feel that a same-sex kiss isn’t shameful, she shouldn’t be simulating one. Then it’s just for shock value. If she does believe it, she should have taken this opportunity to say it.
