Disney, Where did You go Wrong? The Downfall of Miley, the Disney Princess

The days of Hannah Montana are gone forever. Her soul was eaten by Miley Cyrus, a name that can have many connotations for different people: Disney princess gone wild, fail twerking, and worst decision making ever. Don’t get me wrong, I am not hating on her. She is actually a very beautiful woman (even if her behind is deflated), and her voice is brilliant (if you don’t believe me check out this Backyard session of “Jolene”), but fans just can’t understand what happened with her. Obviously, every individual in this world has the right to live his life as he sees fit, but when you are a public person, and model for little girls between the age of 12 and 18 you have a responsibility. Like so many Disney stars before her (Lindsay Lohan, Demi Lovato), she has discovered her sexuality. She is all “grown up” now.

1. Provocative Performances

At the 2009 choice awards, Miley shocked the entire world by pole dancing during a rendition of Party in the USA. Granted, it may not have been a pole dance in the entire sense of the word, but it was the first time that viewers saw the dark side of Miley. And then came the 2013 VMA Awards performance… The only thing that I could think about was what was her father feeling. He has been with her for so long, and once she was unleashed, this happened.


“They told me [beforehand] that Miley’s going to take her clothes off and dance around and she might bend over” that is all Robert Thick knew before the show. He was probably not expecting any twerking, and neither was the audience. Just take a look at their reactions:

This may very well be the fail of the year, in terms of live performances, but all we can hope is that people will, at some point, forget.


We honestly don’t know whether Miley was proud or embarrassed by her performance but one thing is for certain. She is an actress and a singer, she used to be a Disney Star with a squeaky image, which she probably wished to get rid of. So while she was doing some good things – attracting attention, being her own self, and creating her own style, she was also missing some vital points. She is shaping and sending a message to her fans, and this message should not include sultry references.


As we already said, there is no problem with showing your true self, butthis doesn’t mean that all of us should start harassing people on the street just because we are closet perverts, or twerk just because we feel like it. Is this the message that she wants to convey? I actually feel very sorry for her, because she tried to become sexier, and she failed miserably.


2. The Singing

Sure, Hanna Montana’s clean cut image may be gone, but this did not influence her singing in any way. Miley is still an excellent singer. The music video for “Wrecking Ball” may have been pathetic (She was singing about love, did she really have to shed her clothes and lick everything on set?) but it looked like she was singing from the bottom of her heart, and the song really has a strong message.

Steven Kardynal did a FAR better job with the video:

As far as the “We Can’t Stop” hit is concerned, the clip totally ruins it for me. I have nothing against the song (although it’s also not my favorite). Being yourself, and expressing your personality is perfectly fine, as long as you are not molesting teddy bears, and.. other girls… or giving the crazy look..


In conclusion, Miley Cyrus is another princess who had an overdose of Disney. Having to play it nice all the time must have made her wish to become someone else. Too bad she failed. Here’s some Miley “words of wisdom” for your enjoyment.


10 (Less Known) Celebrities Who Were Twerking Before it Was Cool

There is plenty of material circulating the Internet trying to prove that before Miley Cyrus’s One – Woman – Show at the MTV VMA 2013, there were other established celebrities who were twerking with more style, grace and talent in the same time Miley was barely becoming aware of her own gender. While these articles and comments all have a point – that it wasn’t Miley who invented twerking – we chose to take a look back in history and discover some other celebrities than pop-stars who had the moves and the grooves and were not afraid to show it.

We don’t even want to begin a debate regarding the origins of twerking, but we will let the photos speak for themselves, as we chose a few less known and even unexpected celebrities who were twerking before it was cool and who could have taught Miley a lesson or two…

1. Mr Bean

He’s not actually twerking, but he is definitely the forerunner of the whole phenomena. You can see the man has all the good intentions, he just lacks a bit of coordination and of course, a VMA stage…

2. Who’s butt is this anyway?

Wayne Brady’s, apparently and you have to admit the man likes his twerks just as he likes his jokes: shakin’ the audience

3. Carlton was twerking before it was cool

You HAVE to remember the show, its characters and Carlton’s endless passion for dancing in ways that would shame pop – stars and all the new gen of artists. The man had it in its blood and boy was he good at it!


4. Squidward Quincy Tentacles

For those who missed a good part of what it’s called “old entertainment”, Sqidward Quincy Tentacles is a fictional character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. Did Sqidward know how to twerk? Well, it was 1999 when he first showed up and the pic doesn’t lie!


5. Beavis and Butthead

Now these guys don’t need no introduction, as if there was, is and will be something crazy and completely absurd to do in this world, they did it already. They were not only twerking before it was cool, they were doing everything before it even resembled coolness. So bow to the masters of eternal mockery and brain – dead humor!

6. King of the Hill

It is 1997 and Mike Judge together with Greg Daniels thought that people were cool enough to get hooked by an adult animated sitcom. Apparently they were right, as King of the Hill series lasted until 2010 on Fox. Missed this twerking moment? Here is proof that the guys knew what they were doing. king of the hill

7. The Simpsons (and Homer’s fantasy that came true)

If you didn’t watch The Simpsons, leave everything and do it! You’ll understand why. But talking about twerking before it was cool, Homer either had a fantasy, or a vision of the future, because Miley seems to have made his dream (or his glimpse into fast – forward time) become true.

8. Velma

Velma was cooler than any other cool gal out there. And despite her rather shy and geeky appearance, she was a beast in disguise. Just look at those moves and be honest, don’t you just want to take off her glasses?


9. Aaliyah

She was incredibly beautiful, she was incredibly talented, she had the voice, the bod, the moves and the charisma only great artists had. She left us too early and she will be definitely missed now more than ever, because if she lived, she could have taught Miley the art of twerking without looking cheap.


10. Janet Jackson

We chose to finish this trip back on memory lane saving the best for last. There are countless of pop singers who did the twerking before it was cool enough to become a scandalous viral subject on the Internet. They did it exquisitely and even sensuously, and here we have Shakira and Beyonce, to say the list. But Janet Jackson, friends, she was the goddess of twerking back in the day.

While the subject of twerking before it was cool will still keep the headlines for a while, we shall not forget that before Miley and the word that is now everywhere in urban dictionaries, fighting to become the word of the year 2013, it was just a dancing figure which was so popular back in the day, even fictional characters were doing it.
