Bonnie Says: Miley Cyrus Learn A Lesson From Selena Gomez — Stop Alienating Your Fans In Bondagewear!

Miley– why do you want to drive away ALL your former Hannah Montana fans — that’s a giant mistake.

Miley, there are only so many young women in the world and while you may not want to be growing hordes of new pre-teen fans, why do you want to drive away all the young women that looked up to you as Hannah Montana.

Once you quit filming the show, it seems like you made every effort to turn off every parent and girl who looked up to you as a terrific role model.

You sexed up in a barely there corset and over-the-knee black boots in your Can’t Be Tamed video and simulated making out with men and women in your video and on stage. It was practically X-rated for your former audience.

Then there was the salvia-smoking video, the nipple slips and the tattoos. Now you’re on you’re in on tour in the Far East and Australia in leather shorts and garters with a bare stomach and leather bra.

Come on Miley — you’re 18! You don’t need to grow up so fast and you don’t need to lose your young fans so fast!

Take a lesson from Selena Gomez. She’s 18, a tween and teen star too and she’s got a top hit song, “Who Says,” is about to open in the film, Monte Carlo, and she’s never been MORE popular. And she’s done it all without writhing around, pushing up her breasts, simulating sex or dissing her audience.

Miley — you’ve said you don’t want to be a role model and you’ve certainly made that perfectly clear with your actions. But I’m telling you it’s ridiculous to walk away from an audience that you’ve already created.

Selena Gomez cares so much about her fans that she shared the details of her “mystery” illness with them and let them know she was OK. She’s said that she accepts and likes being a role model, even to her youngest fans. Her song “Who Says“, which has sold 844,000 copies in the U.S. alone so far,  is all about NOT losing your self-esteem!

And you know what, they’re paying her back with their support. I predict that long after Wizards of Waverly is over — Selena Gomez will be a big star without bondagewear.

What do you think HollywoodLifers?

stop saying such stupit and unreal things about miley. trust me mrs bonnie fuller u maybe get more money by saying such lies and stupit things about celebrities SPECIALY our
beauty miley but stop saying such things. im sure that miley has never and wont visit this site(like wasting her time!!!!)but there is a huuuuuuuuuuuge number of mileys fans in the world and they may visit this sometimes and every time they waste their time by doing that they may get angry or maybe laugh at these lies(like me).if u want to get fans for ur site u should be honnest with readers and dont make fun of people.

about the topic i should say she is trying to seem fashionable but she cant cuz she still has her 12 years old body , i mean the problemb isnt with the clohes always but her body and 12 year old stupit face so shes always a borring oldfashion 12 year old kid itsnot mileys problem.
miley hasgot a great body and a very beautiful face and shes not hannah shes not acting like a 12 year old, shes a real fashionable18 year old .
u cant compare them cuz they are very different from personality to clothes.miles is already an internashional star & selena has just become famous cuz of dirty beach things she does with bieber .
the first & most important reason that i love miley is that shes a honnest person we can look up to & learn about.
the reason why selena gomez hasnt so much fans is bcuz shes not honnest with her fans & people&shes using other people like justin beiber to be succesful which miley hs NEVER
& wont do.
love miley forever & always.

I am brazilian and I love miley, she is growing up I know, but I am growing up with her. Miley is more connected to her fans than Selena,in my opinion the media must stop comparing Miley to Selena, because their style are realy diferent, Selena is delicate and Miley is rock and roll, but Miley knows when she must be delicate.
I know that we, SMILERS, wont give up of miley, BESCAUSE WE LOVE HER, AND WE ARE GROWING UP WITH HER.

PLEASE MEDIA STOP BLAMING MILEY AND CALLING HER SLUT. she is just a girl who is growing up and learning with her mistakes, like an ordinary girl. We know she is a model for us, but we also learned with her mistakes.
WE S2 MILEY CYRUS !! KEEP SMILING MILEY !!

Your premise of Miley abandoning her fans is wrong. I can’t think of anyone more connected to her fans than Miley. She takes as many pictures as possible with them, has spoken directly on video to them, is now back on twitter keeping them abreast of things while putting up a necessary boundary with both fans and press of keeping her private life as private as possible. People aren’t robots that should all act and develop in the same way, they are distinct personalities and why in the world do women deny other women a basic biological human aspect: sexuality. It is in Miley’s character to act as she does, to display sexuality in her live performances, because it is natural for her to do so. She’s not forcing it like Taylor Momsen does. Let Miley be Miley. Selena goes a different route in her public image: so be it. You two women should really mind your own business, take care of your daughters if you have them, and if you don’t understand Miley then quit your obsession with trying to mold her into what you think she should be rather than what she is. Miley is the one of the most relateable and natural superstars in the public eye and handles herself well under scrutiny most would fold under.

As I’ve said before, and others, Selena is trying too hard to be perfect. She comes off as robotic at best, and phony at worst. She’s too tightly guarded, too close to the vest. Too afraid to ever make a mistake. She doesn’t say anything or do anything. She never opens up. She very corporate. We know nothing about her personality. She is hard to indentify with. She is a marketing machine, but who knows who she is as a person. Selena is like one of those athlete who talks only in sports cliches. Miley is fiesty, she has an honest personality and she isn’t afraid, for better or for worse, to be open and to show it. I can appriciate that. Sure, Miley is flawed. All human beings are flawed. In the end, however, Miley comes off as more human and more Relatable then Selena.

Uh, how ’bout NO!
You see Selena dry humping Justin on the beach too eh ?
When did Miley do that with her boyfriends?
Miley & Selena are 2 DIFFERENT people and i’m tired of people comparing them. It’s pisses me off. Miley understands the term ‘role model’ more than most people. She’s not her fans parent’s for christ sakes.

Selena’s good girl routine will only get her so far. I suppose it depends upon your aspirations. There’s nothing wrong with having modest aspirations, relatively speaking. I see a lot of Hilary Duff in Selena. There’s nothing wrong with that, but Hilary never reached the status of a true, mainstream star. She did well for herself, but she never reached the heights of a superstar celebrity. While Hilary seems okay with that, I can’t blame Miley for not wanted to get boxed in like that. Look, you can either go the direction of Mandy Moore, or Britney Spears. Britney is a mega star. Mandy, while I’m sure she has a nice life, not so much. Miley wants to be a big star. She doesn’t want to be Hilary Duff or Mandy Moore. To each their own.

Whenever someone compares selena gomez to miley they always seem to forget about when selena gomez and justin bieber was basically dry humping on the beach, but when miley does something bad it gets remembered forever. And if selena is such a good role model why was she doing all those things on the beach with justin?

It’s ridiculous that people act as if Miley Cyrus is a bad person or a slut just because she dresses provocatively and there’s sexuality in her dance moves and some of her music. She’s 18 years old going on 19. Hannah Montana has ended and she’s not even on disney channel anymore, so she shouldn’t still be expected to act like she is. There are celebrities just as sexual as she is and even more than she is, but they barely get a tenth of the criticism this young woman gets and it’s not fair.

Just let Selena Gomez be Selena Gomez and let Miley Cyrus be Miley Cyrus. I’m so sick of the conservative prudes of society trying to coerce every young female into this virginal, demure mold against their will. Leave her alone.

Selena gomez is trying to hard to be perfect she is not herself whn she comes out. she desn’t do anything special or special sheis so borring. and th only way she gets famous is because of her boyfriends like nick jonas, tayler launther and justin iebe who will be next cody simpson Greyson Chance. she can’t sing(when sh preforms live you can’t hear here) on stage she doesn’t move I fall a sleep only looking at her. Miley moves she rocks she is here self and she does care about here fans she came back on twitter for us. she isn’t to naked on stage so what you are saying is that she may never where a bikini becaue thats WAY TO NAKED!! just get over it she is a women now selena still looks and sounds like a 5 year old !! so get a live and leave Miley allone !!

This is absolutely ridiculous. Miley is not with Disney anymore and she’s 18 years old. You act like she is supposed to stay “Hannah Montana” forever. You act like Miley IS Hanna Montana; she is NOT so get over it. Miley has a right to grow up. Miley is not a child anymore and therefore she should work to expand her audience, perhaps people HER age that she can relate to better. If you went to ANY high school in the US you’d see a whole lot worse than what Miley is wearing. They are doing worse too!!

Of coarse Miley is trying to step away from the character she played AS A CHILD. If she didn’t I’m sure you’d be faulting her for that.

This site has some vendetta against the woman. She can’t do anything right in your eyes. Why is that? Id like to see how ANY of the “writers” on this website would handle the feat of having to go from “loveable teen start to adult woman trying to find her way” I seriously doubt not one you did anything scandalous in their teens or early twenties right? God forbid

Seriously what’s wrong with knee high boots? Is there some new rule that says women can’t wear them? Get over yourselves.

I have seen A LOT of Miley pictures & not once have I seen a “Nip slip”, the pics that you linked to YOU CANT EVEN SEE ANY PART OF HER BREASTS, how can it be a nip slip?! Miley is wearing COSTUMES at her concerts they are for SHOW just like Britney & Katy Perry. I have never seen her wear her concert costume OFF STAGE.

And who cares about Selena Gomez? She only gets fame for who she dates!! She dated Nick Jonas when he was at the top of his game, then Taylor Lautner when he was filming Twilight and now Justin Bieber. Lets all be really honest here, she wouldn’t even be in headlines if it wasn’t for him. How interesting you chose to ignore the fact that Selena and Justin were humping & straddling on the beach, if that was Miley you would have gone ballistic!! Double standards much?!

Her last movie Ramona and Beezus made 26 million in total & The Last Song made more than half of that in just its opening weekend!! And in the end it made over 60 million in total. How is that unsuccessful?

Also Selena can’t sing to save her life either & anyone who says she can is LYING. Auto tune does great things to recorded music but as soon as you hear her live all bets are off. Disney is simply doing what they always do & try and get as much money out of their talent for the time they are on the Disney channel.

Selena is just telling everyone what they want to & that is 100 times worse than what Miley is doing. Do you expect Miley to be perfect and wear long flowery dresses all the time & bend to every whim a 7 year olds parent wants? By making mistakes she is showing that it’s ok TO BE HUMAN. We learn more from mistakes that succeeding & doing it right every time and the first time. Adolescence is about making mistakes and learning about ourselves so that we know what works & doesn’t work. Miley is allowed to do this too! Let her grow up!!

I love this comment. It’s exactly what I was thinking, and it’s really funny because I was never a fan of Miley Cyrus and I use to love Selena Gomez. But lately, I really like Miley, she’s going through exactly what I’m going through…except she’s going through it in public. If she’s going to make mistakes and dress sexy, now’s the time to do it. And I’m starting to think Selena Gomez is some kind of robot, because the little good girl stuff is kind of getting annoying.

@WOW, well f*ckin said. I can’t recall Miley wearing her costumes off stage either and that is what confuses the hell out of me. People have a problem about her performances..okay if they don’t watch them then the problem is solved.She is performing in a show. Why can’t people except that. It’s a show people!
From what I can see from her interviews and picture postings online–she seems to be a down home fun person. I pick the anti-robot,Miley any day.

Miley has turned into a biotch. Go and watch some of her interviews from Australia. “Losers behind computer screens while she is on world tour.” In other words ….screw anyone who does not kiss her a$$ and just accept all the crap she does. Whatever. Miley is beyond lame now. Best advice would be for her go quit show business, move to Australia permanently, marry Liam and become his subserviant wife, and pop out a few rugrats. Goodbye Miley ……..you career has gone up in a puff of bong smoke. PS…..I don’t like Selena Gomez either. But saving that for another post.
