Miley Cyrus Did Something Actually Responsible, So I’m Ready To Adopt A Flying Pig Now

Miley Cyrus Performs on The Today Show October 7 2013 New York City NYMiley Cyrus and her trusty tongue have pretty much dominated the news this year, but it’s usually not for very responsible or heartening things. It’s usually for being naked in a music video or talking unapologetically about drug use or getting rid of her eyebrows or doing pretty much anything to shock us. Take your pick. However, after hearing this latest story about her restaurant behavior, I think the residents of hell are currently enjoying some fun ice skating.

Miley reportedly paid for a couple’s restaurant bill after bothering them during their anniversary dinner. She and a friend were apparently noisy and disruptive when they entered the New York restaurant (okay, I didn’t say she was responsible the whole time), and when the couple complained about her, she went over and apologized. A witness told the National Enquirer that Miley used “too much caffeine” as an excuse for her behavior, and when she found out it was their second wedding anniversary she left $100 to cover their tab and posed for photos with them.

I must say, despite the fact that this story starts with Miley causing a ruckus, it gives me a little more hope — assuming it’s true — that she’ll make it out of this phase. People might think I’m nuts, but I stand by my belief that it is just a phase, and a very calculated, carefully planned one at that. Whereas stars like Justin Bieber avoid responsibility and basic human decency at all costs, Miley is always ready and willing to own up to her antics.

And if you think about it, besides displaying plenty of behavior unbefitting for a young role model, there haven’t been many reports of Miley treating people with disrespect. She was reportedly very professional during her gig on Saturday Night Live, prompting cast members like Vanessa Bayer to speak highly of her. Her form of professionalism might be a little bit different from yours or mine, considering her job involves licking a sledgehammer, but at least it involves some respect.

    I heard she even gave them a signed photo of her wearing her infamous penis underwear. Is this true?

      Not that I’m aware of.

    My friends think I’m too naive when I say that I think it is just a planned phase and that she will one day stop licking weird things, bragging about drugs etc. Thanks for giving me another reason to support my opinion !

    • Jill O’Rourke

      No problem! I have hope for her. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    I definitely think Miley’s antics are a planned phase. It annoys the shit out of me because I think it’s all very attention seeking and over the top and it shadows her talent (which she actually has some of) but underneath the obnoxious outer layer, she still seems like a good person. Everyone who meets her says she’s polite and lovely, and not a total douchebag like somebody else who’s been acting crazy lately… So even though I think Miley is being ridiculous and just wish people would stop making a big deal of every crazy thing she does so that she’ll stop doing it, I also think she seems like a nice girl who is just trying to hard to make a new image for herself right now

    • Jill O’Rourke

      Agreed.

    I love how this article claims she doesn’t directly disrespect people — but what about her recent use&abuse of a little person in a concert? http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/miley-cyrus-dancer-speaks-vmas-performance-article-1.1483529

    Or her unabashed statement of wanting to make her music more “black”? She is still absolutely a terrible person who is disrespectful to so many others and pays no mind to it–so long as she gets what she wants.

    I think I might have to stop reading Crushable over this. It bothers me too much. Please do some more research before you write. If you did you would have absolutely no hope for this girl just because she paid some couples’ tab after they complained — if they had said nothing, she would have done nothing — this was just to save face over all this stupid shit she’s done lately. She gets no respect from me.

      I don’t think there was any use&abuse of a little person in a concert. That person was on rehearsals so she could have walked off if she wanted to.
      Everybody was paying attention to Miley, not some bears behind her (It could have been a child or some kind of robot instead of little people) so nobody was laughing at them. Nobody knew who was in bear costume, until this person decided to tell them.

      Ok but — she wasn’t just one of the bears in that show, she was in another concert where Miley blatantly treated her as a prop. And you’re right, she could have used anybody — small children? Short non-little people? no — she specifically chose little people. Why? “Because it was supposed to be funny…” Even that in itself is pretty blatant evidence of a lack of moral fibre. All this added together with everything else she’s said and done makes a mountain range, and this one tiny act is just one tiny molehill.

      Ok, I did not know about other show.
      But I’m not sure whether the words “Because it was supposed to be funny…” refer to the choice of little people, or simply to the whole awful “performance”…

    • http://twitter.com/hannahxb hannahxb

      You’re right, that statement is a bit ambiguous — but look at how they were all dressed the same, as teddy bears. It was intended to create a certain reaction, i.e. laughter. Do you think the average Miley fan or person in that audience was thinking “Oh wow it’s so progressive of Miley to have chosen a group of little people to act as her support in this show, I respect little people even MORE now!”? The reality is that Miley chose a group of little people dressed as teddy bears as her backup because she thought it was funny, not to promote equality and state that little people are ultimately people like the rest of us. She made them all dress the same, in a cartoon parody of a bear, so that people in the audience would think “Wow this is so hilarious” or “Omg that is so cute look at all the teddy bears lol!!!” By doing what she did she is treating them as less than human and just as props. Not okay.

      I agree that it was all made to create certain reactions, but I’m not sure she did it to poke fun of little people. I mean, if it wasn’t for that person I wouldn’t know that she specifically chose little people to be the bears-again, I wouldn’t even wonder if there were children,or maybe short non-little people etc. It seems to me people didn’t see much more than her and Thicke’s gross performance.

      Miley can claim it “wasn’t her intention” til she’s blue in the face, but the fact is that she did it–even creating this act is disrespectful. It’s like someone who’s not black dressing up like Jimi Hendrix for Halloween and adding Blackface to the costume “because I just love him so much and want to honour him and stuff” … it’s still not okay.

      Ok. I found this http://cdn.rap-up.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/miley-cyrus-iheartradio-2.jpg and I can see clearly that there’s a lot of disrespect going on.
