Listen, I’m all for positive attitudes and confidence. A healthy dose of self-esteem can go a long way, you know? But I do believe there is such a thing as an overdose of self-esteem, and Miley Cyrus is teetering dangerously close to O.D.ing. On herself.
Miley recently took a break from studying at the Kanye West School of Being Great to speak to Cosmo about what’s happening in her life right now. You know, just in case anyone out there has been living in a cave or under a rock and actually isn’t up-to-date on the latest and greatest in Miley’s life. After announcing that she’s embarking on a tour last night on SNL, I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear about Miley’s thoughts on Miley for awhile:
“I don’t want to say that I’m on top right now – I feel like I’m kind of an underdog in a cool way. It’s almost punk rock to like me because it’s not the right thing to do. Like, society wants to shut me down.”
Whoa, I think that’s too meta for my brain to process right now. While I have hummed along to a Miley tune or two in my day, and I reluctantly admitted to enjoying her hosting stint on SNL, I don’t think a world exists where I would classify myself as “punk rock” for doing so. Lucky for Miley, she doesn’t care what I think because the only person’s opinion who matters is that of one Kanye West. That’s right, Kanye is vice president of his local chapter of the Miley Cyrus Fan Club (Miley’s the president, duh):
“It’s easy for Kanye to support me because we’re in totally separate lanes of competition. And I mean, who cares what the media buzz is if Kanye West is telling you that you’re the shit?”
It’s got to be easy to think you’re invincible, on top of the world, amazing, etc. when everyone keeps talking about you and those closest to you fill your head with all of this shit. But I think it would serve Miley well to go away for a little while before her tour starts, otherwise she’s going to need an intervention to save herself. From too much of herself.
