'The Onion' predicted Miley Cyrus' depletion five years ago
Psychics don’t have anything on The Onion, because as it turns out, Miley Cyrus’ use of teddy bears and one very inappropriate foam finger was something we all should’ve seen coming. Basically, last night’s performance could’ve been prevented … if only we had listened to The Onion‘s broadcast warning against the over-use of the one-time Hannah Montana star.
In a 2008 video, The Onion predicted that “at current usage levels, Miley Cyrus will be drained of entertainment value by 2013.” Apparently, Miley was once considered a “potent entertainment source” that we were “burning through” by putting her on television, toys, clothing and more.
But we just didn’t listen. And now, just as the video predicted, the “down-to-earth Miley who likes text messaging with her friends and playing guitar in her bedroom will be wiped off the earth forever.”
After last night, it’s safe to say Miley has hit “Is she too wild?” levels.
