Miley’s back-to-school lesson

05 Sep
In 2008, I sort of ranted about this Cyrus virus –being the dad of a child in her target group. This ‘performer’ looked like she certainly needed help, at least from a PR standpoint, if not from that of music.
 
Then there was her big move into the grownup world at the MTV VMA. Her attempt to explain it was as vacuous as the performance itself.
 
I was glad someone called it for what it is: a stunt with no depth. Camille Paglia (for TIME) looked into that space that many have tried to occupy, post-Dietrich, post-Presley, and came up with a perfect summary:
 
“Miley, go back to school!”
 
PR school, too.
