Josh's Crazy Random Happenstance

Whatever I want, whenever I want

Miley Cyrus ‘Pole Dancing’

Sometime earlier in the week saw the broadcast of the 2009 Teen Choice Awards where such stars as Zac Efron, Robert Pattinson, and Megan Fox won awards that teens voted for. There were also a bunch of musical acts from such artists as The Black Eyed Peas and Sean Kingston. One such musical act though is sparking controversy and I’m here to inject my own opinion on it.

As the title should have spoiled already, I am talking about Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” musical number. I did not see it on the television the night it aired, I did however see some video uploads and the same picture from it over and over again. It’s everywhere. I will describe what happens and why people are making such a fuss over it.

The song opens up to Miley coming out of a trailer, wearing some really short shorts. They just barely make it past her butt. She begins singing and dancing and in a short amount of time we see her walking stage right. A ice cream cart rolls out onto the stage and has a pole sticking out of it. Miley proceeds to step on top of the ice cream truck, grab the pole, and make one dipping motion on the pole, much like you might see a stripper do. Then she follows it up by holding onto the pole with her left hand, while singing out to the crowd. The ice cream cart moves stage left with Miley holding onto the pole the entire time and then Miley eventually gets off of the ice cream truck. The rest of the song doesn’t matter.

Now, I can understand the controversy. Little kids are watching the program BUT she only made one motion, and it was for a very brief amount of time. The rest of the time she was holding onto the pole. The pole is obviously there for her to hold onto as the cart moves stage left. If not for the pole being there she would have fallen off. And yes, I agree the shorts may have been a bit small for the Teen Choice Awards, but what people don’t realize is that there are tons of people monitoring the show. If the producer or whomever may have been in charge of stage acts thought it wasn’t appropriate I’m most positive they would have confronted her. Furthermore, we do not know if Miley picked out her own wardrobe or not. She may have had someone else put her outfit together.

The comments I see mostly all have something that reads “Miley is such a skank.” or “Miley is going to be the next Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan! She’s such a stupid whore! I hate Miley!” and many more comments. Though, those are severely edited versions. I think it’s unjust hatred. People seem to think the pole was only there for Miley to “whore” herself on, when in fact, anyone with half a brain can figure out it was there for support. It’s not like she was grinding up and down it the entire time she was on the cart.

I would like to link you to the video so you may see for yourself but I cannot find a decent video yet, so once I do, I’ll post it. For now, here’s the picture everyone is using to spin their lies about Miley’s performance.
