This past week Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato responded to a comment about Miley’s weight. Cyrus and Lovato took to Twitter to fight back at a comment that someone made about Miley getting a little “chubby.” Did Miley do this to keep herself in the news?
Actually, in the grand scheme of things no one really cares if Miley Cyrus or Demi Lovato is skinny, fat, or anything in between. The thing is that Miley became riled-up by an anonymous blogger and turned the entire fiasco into a publicity stunt.
This is the classic “if I’m not in the news, I will create a little sympathetic news about myself” thus rallying all the star’s fans around a cause. This seems to be the case for Miley, Demi and the entire ‘extra five pounds’ debate.
True the cause is sympathetic. There is no denying that there is too much emphasis placed on the looks of the Hollywood elite. Add to this current technology that seemingly airbrushes every photo to the point of no one knows what is real and what is digitally enhanced these days.
Speaking of digitally enhanced….it was a video by a complete nobody on YouTube that started this rant. Nearly 18,000 views later, this person called kellybestinitup has gotten attention for her Photoshop job on Miley Cyrus and Miley has gotten a reason to go on a Twitter crusade.
The news media took Miley and Demi Lovato’s tweets and turned them into front-page news. The funny thing is, if Miley had just ignored it, this kellybestinitup person would have had 200 views on her stupid video and no one would have cared. Instead, Cyrus used some anonymous YouTube poster as a reason to put herself back in the spotlight. Goodness, this has to be better publicity than a wardrobe malfunction or a “nip-slip,” right?
