oh what a cute little Disney show. Hey, look it's "Achy Breaky" Billy Ray... onand that was about it. My daughter watched the show. We have both of the CDs. We don't have the Nintendo DS game - couldn't imagine that one. I'll shamelessly admit it - we have the Hannah wig, too. And I have a picture of The UIC wearing it in a moment of silliness...that I would share, but I would like to have a peaceful week with him at home, so I'll have to save it for another time...in case he checks in to see what all this 'slackerness' is about.
But I digress (often apparently). What worries me about Hannah Montana is her choice of pictures that get leaked out from myspace. I'm pretty sure she's not the first teenage girl to take a snapshot of herself, trying to look more 'grown up' than she really is. What I don't like is that it's someone who trumps herself as a positive role model for children. I could do without the bathroom mirror pictures of inflated tops and underroos, thank you. There's a lot to be said for the imagination (something else I am beginning to think today's youth just doesn't get...)
Then there are the Miley and Mandy videos on youtube. Excuse me? Are they trying to be funny like "Fred"... because I just don't get it. There is one that is on my service provider's homepage with an article that talks about "Miley's mean girl moment" because she is apparently poking fun at Selena Gomez and another new Disney up and comer. Whatever.
At least when Anne Hathaway wanted to shed the 'good girl' Disney image she was old enough to hopefully know what she was doing. Maybe she had better handlers than those who are supposedly watching out for Miley's best interests. But then again, who even said that Miley Cyrus is a role model? I think that younger girls idolize the "Hannah" part of the character. Without being caught up in the 'Miley moment'.
I am curious what others think on the Miley mania. Do you think that Miley is getting too much hype for her antics? Is she just riding on the hem of the success that Disney had with Hannah Montana? Do you think she is a role model for young girls? Sound away ...
