A voice of a Teenager

Teenagers. What flashes to your thoughts when you hear the word teenagers? Ferocious, drunkards, rabble-rousers. 20th-century teenagers were said to be the fortunate ones for having to live a life with technology but at the same time teenagers were also labelled as what they call party animals and they have gotten worst over the centuries. That’s what society thinks about young people; however, they don’t really know anything at all or what they are actually capable of, teenagers could be a blessing in disguise and society is not even fussing about it. Teenager’s like Miley Cyrus 20 years old, A Disney star who’s been watched by millions of people ever since she was a kid she also gets taunted in so many ways by so many different types of people and it’s stereotypical for some to think that all adolescents are trouble makers like her just because she has changed rapidly with the way she display herself in the media through her fashion which became way more revealing than anticipated and how she interacts with people at the present time also  even her approach in the media, if there were to be a fire they would think minors like her would add more fuel to the fire. Especially from some parents, they try to mould their children into something they’re not, a leopard can’t change their spots just like Miley Cyrus can’t change who she is.

Miley Cyrus is a huge part of the Disney industry and one of the renowned stars in Hollywood but what struck the viewers the most is that she has transformed into something they didn’t want her to be because some parents expected her to be the role model for the youngsters yet she acts like a wannabe ghetto along with her what she calls her ‘Homies’ but what can we do if that’s what she wants to be and that’s what she really is we can’t just ask her to change for our own benefits and it’s basically taking away her right on having a blissful and exultant life. Especially with her music video ‘Wrecking ball’ in which she’s entirely nude riding a ball have certainly shocked the whole nation after that she got a lot of mumbo-jumbo gibberish comments from haters and to her so entitled fans who have turned anti-fans.

Particularly with her performance in the VMA which had a big outraged and a lot of people weren’t pleased with her performance even her co-stars were still in big dazed about Miley Cyrus presentation then. One reason why people weren’t happy the fact that they didn’t anticipate her to display that kind of behaviour mainly in public and they have seen her as an innocent female teenager star and she doesn’t click with the rebellious slutty look at all. Yet she displayed a very inappropriate performance and she was even half naked on stage in the VMA which made it unusual because this was their first time seeing Miley that way. There were also rumours going around that she had a ‘Pop a molly’ moment before she had her show and that’s another reason why her performance why in such a peculiar presentation. What has shocked them the most as well was her twerking and her danced with the singer Robin Thicke, 36 years old which look as if she’s inviting him in her cave and what have added more fuel to the fire was that he’s married as well which made the issue worse.

Miley Cyrus controversial VMA performance with Robert Thicke has divided even her most loyal fans, and made a lot of haters, especially going up the stage with poise in a latex bra and a thong for her performance and with her tongue frequently hanging out like as if she’s seducing someone. Some celebrities even said that her show was disturbing. They even said that her performance was not art and instead a cry for help humiliation on MTV which I thought was a bit harsh for the young actress. Those celebrities are rather barking on the wrong tree, they are just all bark and no bite. Taylor Swift 24 years old who even snatched a drink from a friend who was next to her to wash down her misperception and at one point they have caught her saying “shut the f*ck up”.

You can’t judge a book by its cover. It’s true that Miley Cyrus ‘performance is a bit of a surprise and has traumatized quite a number of people on the other hand that doesn’t make her a bad individual at all. She has driven far and long enough to get to the top and people have got to admit that she is indeed one of the most talented celebrities you know from the business. What I consider is that Miley Cyrus is doing the right thing and she’s doing it for her to be contented and not to make anyone delighted. It’s something that society should respect and comprehend because she is human herself and does have the right to be who she wants to be in life. She wasn’t born to entertain anyone, she was born to satisfy and enjoy her life as much as she could because life is just too short to fret about the trivial things when there are far better things to think about than to worry these problems.

That’s why I think she still makes a respectable model for teenagers not just with the drugs and insubordinate, stubborn, and slutty look image changed but the fact that even though she has been through a lot of scuffles in life she still decided to be just the way she is and she doesn’t worry what other people’s comments are to her. She doesn’t have a care in the world in other words as long as she’s satisfied and contented with what she’s doing which I think is inspirational to a lot of people. The only problem with society is that they tell you to be who you are and yet they judge you if you show the real you which I think is wide of the mark. Instead of judging the person they should, at least, give the person a chance and appreciate them and just simply accept their assertiveness and character because everyone deserves to be happy and have all the privileges to be who they are. Instead of shaping the teenagers to be who they want to be they just let them develop in the way they want to be because when the time comes they will blossom like a fine-looking butterfly. They should, at least, trust them on their verdicts because they are at an age in which they are able to make their own decisions and just be who they are. Teenage life only comes once in a lifetime you can’t be a youth now and in 10 years’ time, you’re still a teenager. One day they will have their own families and duties or even everyday jobs where they won’t even have time for themselves because they will soon have priorities and responsibilities and teenagers now will one day become parents and they will have their own life so before those things happen they ought to at least live it before their time comes because once it happens you won’t be able to take it back.
