We get Miley, you're edgy! Her music video's getting more SMH than accolades.
Miley Cyrus has a new video out. Whoppee. She's kinda naked. Double whopee. Again. Triple whopee. Yup, those "Whopees" are dripping in sarcasm.
We get that Miley wants to distance herself from her Hannah Montana character. We get that she wants to be considered a "real" singer and an artiste. We get that she feels that if she keeps showing us her grown up body that we'll stop thinking of her as that fresh-faced kid from Disney.
I've been ignoring the whole Miley fiasco for awhile. First, I figured that she's only 20 and we all do insane things when we were 20. Being 20 and doing crazy things, heck you get a pass. I laughed about the twerking thing. Back in the early 00s, I and my friends use to twerk in the clubs. Funny thing, we didn't call it "twerking" we called it dancing. Who knew we were so ahead of curve when it came to ass dancing?
Miley's been releasing music videos from her release, Bangerz. They're all so hot and edgy, they're all so sexy (please read last sentence with sarcasm dripping from your tongue). Allegedly, the last video, Adore You was leaked onto the 'net. And ooh, it's so edgy.
We've got Miley rolling around in sheets in nude lingerie, singing and caressing a video camera whilst touching herself. It's a step up from Wrecking Ball where she only wore a chain...as an accessory. So, this is supposed to be one more calculated step in showing the world how cool, edgy and adult she is, right? I think she's on the edge of overkill. I mean, what else is she gonna do that hasn't been done before? How else could she prove to the world that she not only hit puberty, but has passed successfully through its portals? I dunno, act more like an adult than a tween demanding attention? Just a thought.

When I watched this Adore You, the movie geek in me wondered how they set up the shots. The fashion geek in me wondered what brand of lingerie she's wearing. Then I started wondering how long it took to edit it. Then I got really bored. You can only watch simulated sex for so long before you start to nod off.
I wonder, is Miley on her way to being respected as a musical artist, or is she getting super close to jumping the shark. What do you think?
