Pop princess Miley Cyrus got blasted by Occupy Wall Street types for daring to support the rag-tag movement. Now, Hannah Montana herself is taking fire from conservative columnist Michelle Malkin.
And it isn’t pretty.
Malkin says Cyrus’ attempt to co-opt one of her songs for the OWS crowd “smells like opportunistic teen queen spirit.” It’s also a perfect fit for the movement itself.
In so many ways, Miley and the Occu-mob are a match made in heaven. Vacuous. Hypocritical. Entitled. Vain. Nihilist. Exhibitionist. Coddled. Forever adolescent, treating life like an endless “Party in the U.S.A.,” and demanding that everyone else pay for it.
Cyrus has struggled over the last few years to transition from bubble-gum songstress to Serious Artist. Along the way she made some of the same mistakes committed by her predecessors, like baring her skin and doing drugs to show she’s an adult at long last.
She’d be far better off flaunting her maturity with more powerful songs and richer lyrics.
