She is a pro at walking the red carpet.
Of course, many child actors are, so I suppose this is not a big deal. Until she walks the carpet dressed like this on Halloween:
No, I don’t suppose this is a big deal to anyone. It’s a costume, right? I mean, really. She’s cute!
I mean, it’s no big deal that she poses with a bunch of other girls—that’s her on the left, in the back—hanging onto a stripper pole.
If you are still struggling with this notion about how problematic it is when we sexualize our little girls, you need to start getting critical, fast.
It should make you uncomfortable to watch a little girl singing Akon’s “Smack That” in front of a group of adults. Encouraged by a group of adults.
Especially with lyrics like this:
smack that all on the floor / smack that give me some more
smack that ‘till you get sore / smack that, oh-oo
Or dancing to Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” and posting it to You Tube:
And yeah, I got those lyrics, too:
Before I leave brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack
You should wonder where her parents are when she leaves the house dressed like this:
That would be Noah in the middle. Wearing the push-up bra that is peeking out from under her shirt. And to be fair, I shouldn’t make you question where her parents are since I have given you the answer. Yeah, that’s Tish Cyrus, Noah and Miley’s mom right there on the left. Oh, I’m sorry. Did I mention that Noah is 10 yrs old?
She was only 9 when she made those videos. And posed on the red carpet. But hey, isn’t this how all 9 yr old American girls are behaving today? Think again.
