Okay... this has been the year of tween Idol break down... I am starting to think that a course on decision making needs to be added to every school curriculum! Or perhaps Disney needs to create a parenting course required for stage Moms and Dads?
First, we have the Naughty Vanessa Hudgens who made us ask, "What did teens do before there were cameras on cell phones?"
Then we have the Poster Child for Teen Pregnancy, Jamie Lynn Spears...expecting a girl, we hear... lovely.. continuing the heritage of Spears' girls.
This week it is Miley Cyrus who is at the head of the class... While doing a cover shoot with Annie Lebowitz for Vanity Fair... Miley was allowed to make a bad decision about appropriateness of a particular set of photo shots...Daddy and baby sister had left the set for another appointment and Miley, aka Hannah Montana, was left with her Grandmother and a teacher.
First, I say, "Fire the teacher." Clearly she has not successfully done her job.
As for the rest... shame on Vanity Fair and Annie Lebowitz... put a 15 year old girl in a compromising situation?! No - she is not old enough to have made a better decision... on her own.
I am sure Playboy and Hustler have positions available for people with your "special" talents, Annie. By the way, the topless picture of Miley was down right Ugly... people pay you for that Gothic-from the 80's horror film shots?! Yuck!
Miley should have known better -at 15 years old - what 15 year old does... no matter how famous?
Daddy and Mommy need to be there no matter how legitimate the situation may be. This is not a good omen of what will happen in 3 years when Miley is 18 years old and expected to make all of her own choices... as well as take the consequences.
Disney needs to take note... Nick as well... even if the studios are supporting train wreck tween stars... eventually... Parents will not trust the studios for decent, wholesome entertainment and make other choices for their children. Rein those star parents in and make them do their job!
On a better note, Britney will be back on TV reprising her role on How I met Your Mother... and not making headlines with her decision making skills... thank goodness for Daddy. Maybe she can actually make it back to reality... time will tell.
