Peer pressure: The Caving of Miley Cyrus

12 08 2019

By Chinwuba Iyizoba

There is a saying that the corruption of the best is the worst. This rings true in case of Miley Cyrus, a once adorable chastely clad girl who attended church regularly while growing up and wore a purity ring.

 At 11, she became a teen idol with millions of fans for her role in Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana.

She went from success to success, earning golden globe awards and was ranked the 4th best selling female artist in 2009. Her Hannah Montana soundtrack sold millions of copies. The taste of success was sweet as she performed for Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the British Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance in Blackpool, Lancashire.

Unfortunately, in 2010, things took a bad turn. Her film “The Last Song (2010), based on the Nicholas Sparks novel did badly, her studio album that same year was a commercial failure.

Attributing her string of failures to her unsexy image, she parted way with her old manager and hired a new one who advised her to take a wrecking ball to decent girl image.

She heeded the advice and transformed from wholesomeness to the highly sexualized woman we see today. 

In a video interview in 2014, she shared her transformation story

“It was always Miley is boring, boring, boring she said, revealing the unrelenting peer pressure with which modern showbiz stars have to contend.

 She didn’t need much convincing though, she loved being a superstar and if going bare will keep her there, so be it!

 Against her mother’s advice, she ditched her decent garments for naked profanity. Her 2013 album “Wrecking Ball” showed her swinging naked on a wrecking ball. It was viewed over nineteen million times within its first day of release and became first single to top the Hot 100 chart in the United States having sold over two million copies.

Fame and power– honey she had once tasted and loved– flowed back into her tongue in torrents. Today, she is worth somewhere around $200 million.

In same video above, her mother said she doesn’t agree with everything Miley does but added, “We must understand that we are dealing with a 21 yro girl, and this is what 21 yr olds do, Miley is just doing hers in front of the world.”

Yet private things are best kept from the world.

True, parents should allow their adult children freedom to live their lives, yet they should never abandon their duty to correct them when they go wrong especially if it is due to peer pressure.

Public nakedness is wrong because it can provoke extreme revulsion or extreme attraction; the same parts of the body that attract sexually are also the same ones that repulsive during excretion. That’s why decent people choose to be naked only in private, and before people who they trust. Exposing of private parts to strangers can incite lust or derision. Of the two, lust is the more dangerous.

Lust is a craving force that can lead to crimes like rape, and murder. Sex when abused has a markedly disastrous effect on society. According to C.S Lewis, “Someone who abuses sex may easily populate a whole village.”

It is thus common sense to control and moderate this power through decent clothing. To dress modestly is to live charitably with other, for it is charity to avoid arousing lust or revulsion in others. Unfortunately, modern showbiz only care for money.

Today’s showbiz stars must dance naked before camera crew if they want money, power and fame. It is the echo of the ancient serpentine offer, “All the kingdoms of the world I will give thee. If you fall down and worship me.” Jesus may have rejected that offer but many celebrities are grabbing it with both hands.

Yet as scripture says, “The canal cannot see God,” Miley regularly wears devil horns on stage,and continues degenerating to vicious license, and things are going dark quickly for her.

Slave of sex and selfish, she is incapable of faithful lifelong love. She recently ditched her husband Liam Hemsworth for a lesbian, after just 8 months of marriage.

She’s now a frenetic supporter of every sexual deviate.  Bent on sexualizing her teen followers, she is a strong advocate of abortion, and infanticide, and recently posted a picture on Instagram, with her serpent tongue on an abortion cake

Her addicted fans hail her as Queen and like puppets are imitating her excesses to their own destruction.

Miley Cyrus dances pornographically atop the grave of chaste Hanna Montana, however, she and her unscrupulous collaborators should know that there is a huge and devastating cost to what they are doing.

According to researcher, Patrick Fagan PhD, internet pornography is killing families and is responsible for 50% of divorces with over 40million addicts in the US alone.

And just like drug addicts have a powerful tendency to violence to satisfy cavings; porn addiction is linked to rape and other sex crimes. FBI’s own statistics show that pornography is found at 80% of the scenes of violent sex crimes, or in the homes of the perpetrators.”

 A great percentage of Miley’s 44 million Facebook followers are teen boys who do badly at school because porn exposure is linked to problems with problem-solving, reasoning and comprehension abilities, all of which are necessary to succeed in school.

These are real costs, borne by ordinary people, parents of families, mothers and fathers husbands and wives. They would do well to protect their homes and children from these disruptive influences by monitoring the type of social media content their wards consume.

Still, it must be remembered that Jesus did not come to save the righteous but sinners. With more energetic supernatural means of prayer and fasting, the corrupted can be purified to shine brighter than diamond. Let us not leave this soul sunk in her wantonness for want of prayer and fasting.

I don’t understand why people are so crazy her or other celebrities…

Temsü Lemtur yes, it is a form of madness. If you notice the mad people on the street walking around naked, and quickly get rid of any article of clothing kind passerby give them. Many celebrities are depressed, which is a mild form of madness, fopr them there is no sleep, tension to succeed, to impress, to be a star eventual wreck them, no rest, that’s why most of their lives end tragically. Remember Micheal Jackson. His every day life was the fantasy of every teen. Yet he died of propofol overdose, which a strong sedative used as anesthesia during surgery. Jackson was injecting it daily because he could not sleep, a sad and broken man

YouChoose Mariama Bilkish yes, they are not ordinary people, something else have taken over their souls, some people call this “something” “diabolo” which is an ancient name for the demonic.Studies show that there is an increased demonic possessions in the world today because of nudity and carnality. It is even written in the Holy writ that “the carnal cannot see God” the devil knows it and has capitalized on it, promoting nudity and pornography everywhere, on TV, social media site, youtube. And yet the greatest trick the devil played is to convince the world that he does not exit and he has no hands in all the perverse nudity going on, that’s why he is called the father of lies.

Yes you are right.. Hate equally

Neptune Redwood, the article isn’t about hate, but about pointing out to young people the reasons behind the precepts of decency, and the what agenda drives those who transgress especially if they are famous showbiz persona, I believe this will help young people make proper decision in their own lives and not fall prey to deception.

You must be living in the dark..
You forgot Nicky Minaj and the rest and went straight ahead to Miley.
You must hate her so much,don’t you?😤😤😤😤😤😤

Thanks for writing in Cloudy Cobby, no I didn’t forget Nicky Minaj, but her story is different. Her father was a violent alcohol addict who burnt down his own children’s home when they were little. Nicky and her siblings had to scrounge to feed, were forced to live with granny, and live was very hard. Thus, she is an understandably very angry young woman because of all that happened, and perhaps she is just rebelling against her parent’s failings with her devious public nudity. Miley had a great childhood and made tons of money as a decent Hannah Montana, and thus her later corruption is shamelessly blameworthy.😀

If peer pressure is the theme of this article, you didn’t make a case for it. Peer is by definition mates, colleagues, or someone equal. Miley’s case is more akin to blackmail, complicit or in-complicit, she wanted money, to maintain a level of success she was already used to when she was as young as 11yr old, and perhaps that led her to desperation, and just like any call-girl, to sell what she has (her dignity) to get back at the top. My conclusion’s is that she’s just a very ambitious young woman, furiously in love with herself, ready to break every moral code to break every moral code to remain on top. She is credited with inventing the so called “twerk” dance, a most shameless, debased dance that can make the most debased sex criminal blush, unfit for civilized society, yet its the new craze at parties and dance clubs, and mindless girls without shame.

Thanks for writing in Christopher. Peer pressure can be indirect,a kind of social modeling. For instance if group of highly successful show biz personalities engage in nudity and obscenities and rather than be ostracized for immorality, they awarded golden globs and Oscars, this is way of saying public nudity is cool, everyone is doing it, and if you want to join thw big boys, you’ll have to do it. Perhaps this is the most dangerous type of peer pressure that leads millions of young and impressionable teens astray

A case in point was the recent Grammy won by Cardi B, just after a video was released of her talking about how she drugs men and take their money when she was working as a stripper. Even when this video went viral, did the grammy organization withdraw the award out of embarrassments, the answer is no. They looked the other way, sending subtle messages to youths that such behavior is no big deal. This is indirect pressure on young people to ditch trying to be good and do whatever it takes to get to the top

Poor girl, so sorry she caved into like that. Showbiz destroyed many people, remember how it destroyed Micheal Jackson

The love of money is the root of all evil. I know quite a few superstars who give it all up rather than be corrupted, it’s all about being firm in your convictions
