Miley Cyrus AKA Hanna Montana Going Topless For Vanity Fair

Miley Cyrus Going Topless For Vanity FairDear ol’ dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, must be so proud of his daughter right now. Entertainment Tonight has announced that 15 year-old Miley Cyrus, also known as Hanna Montana, will be going topless on Vanity Fair.

I’m not surprised actually. I figured it was only a matter of time before she was added to the increasing number of teen pop stars heading down the path towards becoming a tramp, right along with Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears.

Parents aren’t paying close enough attention to the fact that very young girls are seeing Miley Cyrus and other pop stars as their role models, wanting to look like them, dress like them, act like them. And don’t forget all the makeup little girls as young as 5 or 6 are begging parents to buy them, while parents spend their money buying Hanna Montana dolls, clothes and all the other crap marketers are throwing at young kids.

It’s time that parents really start thinking seriously about the Sexualization of Children, and how marketers are targeting very young children, causing young girls and boys to grow up way too fast. The only way marketers are going to be forced to stop sexualizing children is when parents finally stand up and say, “We’re not going to take it anymore!”, and boycott stores that market this sort of smut to kids.

I’ve got a suggestion for parents of what should be done with all the Hanna Montana crap that parents have bought for their kids. Bonfire anyone? That would make a nice video on YouTube or MySpace.

    Vanity Fair was stupid to shoot her in this way, and her parents/managers were all stupid to allow it…bad judgment all around. She’s too young for that kind of shoot. But that’s all it is, stupidity. It does not negate the tenor and tone of the show or the music- both of which are pretty tame.

    It is very disturbing that so many people feel that Miley Cyrus doing a photo shoot with barely any clothes on at the age of 15 is harmless and innocent. There was nothing innocent about that photo shoot.

    I don’t mind saying (all of my friends can vouch for that!) that I’m still livid that Disney did nothing to make an example of Miley over this trampy debacle. In fact, Hanna Montana merchandise was heavily promoted and was quite a brisk seller for many, many retailers during the Christmas holidays.

    This has sent a message loud & clear to me that Disney no longer cares about the wholesome image that they’ve banked on for decades and instead is motivated purely by the same corrupted greed that drives what I might used to consider lesser media companies.

    As much as I’ve been a huge fan of theirs in the past, I’ll be doing my level best to avoid spending any of my family’s money on anything Disney-related from here out. (Sadly, I’m not at all sure how to reconcile that intent with the fact that I dearly love and wish to continue supporting Pixar’s efforts.)

    I hear ya Rob. Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana CRAP is everywhere in the stores, everywhere you look there’s some product or toy of some kind staring ya in the face. I guess no one has ever heard of promoting TOO much of her junk at one time.

    Recently there was news quoting Miley saying that she now thinks the photo shoot was great and aspires to be a professional photographer. Yawn……
