Exactly what is Miley thinking?
I know, now that she’s reached a certain age, she’s reaching out to a fan base that no longer sleeps with stuffed animals, and she’s gonna have to spice things up a bit.
She needs to understand something that many teenagers don’t. Some girls don’t fully realize it till they’re somewhere in their mid-twenties. Most ladies pushing their mid-thirties have fully realized it, while women in their forties have accepted it:
the major sex organ of your body is located between your ears, not your legs.
Okay? Get it.
You’re sexy or you’re not, and it’s all a matter of your mind. Of how you think, not how you look or act.
You try too hard, it ain’t sexy.
Here’s a picture of Miley, reportedly when she was eighteen, trying to look as provocatively sexy as she thinks she can:
Shamelessly, unabashedly sleazy. JonBenet on estrogen. Disturbing. Creepy.
I can understand that as she gets older (or at least finally legal) ol’ Miley is going to want to update her image. For a young lady in her position, it’s not just personal: it’s commercial. Some will say it’s “artistic”, but that just sounds like an excuse to me. A world-class rationalization. There are a whole bunch of successful young performers who don’t feel such a radical reinvention is necessary. They let their work reflect the growth spurt, not their sideboobs.
They’re strong enough to realize they have to remain true to their selves, even in the public eye.
It’s unfortunate in so many ways, but in certain respects Miley’s self-image almost has to take second place to her public image, and that is so, so very, very wrong for anyone of that tender age. It’s the price she has to pay for the profession she’s chosen. If such a young lady has to pay that price, you hope she’s well balanced enough not to sell the farm in the process.
Miley has to try to appeal to a different demographic, try to broaden her appeal, but the “tweeners” who have formed the majority of her fan base since “Hannah Montana” are gonna start thinking it’s time for them to follow suit. Or suitless. And that is very bothersome.
Here, on the other hand, is a picture of Diane Lane. This is how it’s done:
Unbelievably, undeniably sexy. Doesn’t have to try at all. Twice as sexy as Miley is sleazy, or as sexy as Miley thinks she is, and from what I can tell from the source of this picture, more than just a slight bit over twice as old as Miley.
But you can sense it. You can see it and you can almost feel it.
That comes from confidence. There’s nothing she has to prove. She knows it, and she doesn’t have to try to sell it.
It’s from confidence, from experience, from an inner peace with who you are.
Maybe it comes with age.
Hopefully it will gradually come to Miley.
…there’s always exceptions to the rule.
But I blame all of this on guys.
Y’see, most guys have an entirely different concept of “sexy” than women do.
I’ve heard a lot more women say about men than men say about women:
“There’s just something (sexy) about them.”
It’s almost like looks aren’t that big a factor in the equation.
Guys, on the other hand, will rely on something they have to be able to look at in order for them to be able to see it.
Guys will always have some feature to point out …
… sometimes in a very inappropriate manner.
