Miley Cyrus Gets Called 'Disgusting' By Institute — Are They Being Too Harsh?

Miley Cyrus Bad Influence

Miley Cyrus was named our role model of the year in 2011, but the Culture and Media Institute says she’s detrimental to young girls. Don’t you think she’s just trying to have fun?

We have to admit we were a little surprised to see Miley Cyrus posing with Liam Hemsworth‘s penis cake at his birthday party recently, but are her actions really damaging to the little girls who follow her? The Culture and Media Institute released a story yesterday condemning the 19-year-old former Disney starlet and her wild behavior.

“Actress and singer Miley Cyrus, who famously played the wholesome Hannah Montana, has become the epitome of the anti-role model for young girls,” the story says.

After listing her less than positive moments (read: admitting to being a stoner, etc.), the piece claims Miley promotes sex and bad behavior, which is a hindrance to society.

“Movies like Bachelorette and disgusting behavior like Cyrus’ may be part of the ‘real world’ of Hollywood, where casual sex is celebrated and frequent divorce is almost a rite of passage. But it is not the real world, because in the real world, sleazy behavior has consequences,” the story ends.

Sure, Miley is a little wild sometimes, but she is also positive in a lot of ways too. She’s one of the most charitable young celebrities in Hollywood.

Do YOU think Miley is a bad role model?

come on ppl seriously? its a friggin cake and i am 19. i’ve never done anything like that either but that doesn’t give me the right to judge her for something that was obviously meant as a joke. i mean for all we know it could have been a dare or something. and to the ppl comparing her to selena and taylor…being “seemingly” perfect doesn’t make you a role model, even though i look up to people like moms i still want to look up to someone who can help me with “life” and who have more to talk about than the boys they date

where’s the “she’s just not a role model” option in the poll.
She WAS a good role model…out of contractual obligation. For years she supressed living the personal life of a normal teen/young adult/adult. Now she’s not obligated to anymore. Time for parents to throw away the Hannah Montana stuff and ply their kids with some new teen cashcow… who is being paid to act a certain way.

Oh how disgusting it is, these scumbag photographers are invading a private party (a private party goddamitt!!!) taking pictures of the teen role model lickity spliting the penis cake (just a cake people!) from the bottom. Has the world gone mad?!! Poor old miley, she can’t even enjoy herself. Can’t you see that she is only demonstarting her 6 year old fans how to have fun?

When did she ever promote casual sex? She’s been with the same boyfriend for over 2 years. Her FIRST serious boyfriend. It’s OK for Selena to wear a 69 shirt and hump her boyfriend on the beach and let him grab her breast. It’s OK for Nick Jonas to become involved w/an engaged woman, then just WEEKS later (NOW THAT’S CASUAL!) start shacking up w/the lady in Hotels in Bali and Cabo and Brazil etc. etc. with papps taking pics of the whole thing. His fans are just as young. It seems to me that Miley has more morals than either of those two. This is so unfair.

Why are people so obsessed with her being a role model!? Most of the girls who grew up with her are a lot older now anyway! Miley is amazing.. She is charitable, she supports gay rights, she loves people, and she is a devout Christian.. I don’t see how a person could be any better than Miley is, can you?

Most people in our society don’t expect a 19-year-old woman to be celibate or to act like a nun. And since these pictures were taken at a private party which TMZ somehow got hold of–mostly like paying someone to invade the privacy of the party!!!–the Culture and Media Institute should not even be commenting on it. However, slimy immoral groups like that seldom respect people’s privacy and they seem to think that we will all be supportive of their vile opinions. I for one wish groups like that would simply dry up and blow away. They seem to think that we are all in need of rigid evil groups like their’s telling us how to live our lives. I don’t appreciate it.

Can everybody please for the love of god get over this whole rolemodel to young kids thing? Some of you people are just so judgmental and negative its sad. You have no understanding of anything and just don’t see the other side of things, she was at her boyfriends 22nd birthday party in a club. Of course she is going to drink and is going to let loose a little because not everybody are prudes like some of you people, some of us like to have fun, oh and sorry if you’re 19 and you have never done any of things she has because wow you are missing out and well your life must be pretty damn boring. Grow up and stop being so freaking judgemental over somebody you know nothing about and holding things in the past against her!

Just how long is Miley Cyrus supposed to go on with an innocent young lady routine, for the rest of her life? She is an adult now, with adult interests and styles and music. She is behaving just like any other 18-19 year old I’ve ever known. Why take away one of the most enjoyable times of her life?

Celebrities are NOT role models, they are celebrities. Role models are firefighters and police and the people in your community and life who are providing a real (versus hollywood plastic) example of how to live your life. What are young girls supposed to learn from people running around with lots of money and attending ritzy parties? That’s not reality. It’s no different than choosing princesses as role models. It’s merely a fantasy for 99.99 percent of people. Teach your girls the difference between fantasy and reality. And BE your girls’ role models.

This site is the definition of bipolar!! One second Miley is the best, just been a typical teen & the next she’s HORRIBLE-worst influence ever!! Y’all are so hypocritical. Let the girl grow up, have fun & find her own way. It’s what should happen in your teens & twenties!!

For those who say that “she is acting like any 19 year old.” I’m 19 and I certainly do not act like this. I don’t do drugs and I definitely don’t take pictures with my tongue sticking out at a penis cake. And I really hope that girls don’t see this as good “role modelling” because then society truly has a problem to who is defined to be a good role model.

Of course you’re entitled to live your life the way you want, even to live like a nun if that’s what you want, but you don’t have the right to push that lifestyle on others. Most of us don’t appreciate people who will only accept other people if they live exactly like you do, especially if you expect others to live rigid inhuman lives!

She is an excellent role model because she smokes, drinkings, and thinks swallowing a huge cock is funny. Get real. I was more mature when I was 15.

Calm down, she was just joking around with her friends, being silly, and having fun! Give her a break! If you saw a pic of one of your friends doing the same thing, you’d just laugh about it!

Actually, if she is as famous as Miley, I’d be taking pictures and selling them to TMZ. She has millions, I need to work everyday to buy food. Her father is in the business most of his life, he had a wild time, and look what happened to him, 2 kids born in the same year out of wedlock from 2 different women. She’s been in the business since she was a child, has a mother in the business, has Dolly Parton as her Godmother…this person can’t figure out how to protect herself from people with cameras at a private event. Speaking of privacy, privacy only relates to whomever rented the room out and the establishment; not to the people in the room, unless the establishment agrees to accept such a responsibility, which I doubt it did; most say the person renting the room is responsible for what happens in the room. So, once again, if she rented the room, with all her experience in showbiz and the publicity of it, SHE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER!!!! Or she leaked the pictures to get all this free publicity. People defending her as being a victim are just naive!

Miley is just being like any 19 year old. I think she’s great and I’m glad she doesn’t hide anything, that’s why she IS a good role model. She’ll tell you she does drugs and is comfortable in her sexuality. Being sexual and experimentation are all part of growing up. Other stars are not as open about their experiments or as comfortable in their bodies as Miley seems to be. And it’s not like she did heroin or crack! Marijuana is proven to be quite good for you (in moderation)

Being a role model is having someone look up to you. Are you saying you want little girls having to look up to someone who does drugs, likes taking “sexual” shots of herself and cakes?
at kind of world did you live in?

No she’s not a bad girl at all and I think some people had the rights to say no because I think some of the haters should be sorry for what they have said and done about Miley because she is a very respectful girl like always I love her in my special way. :) <3

She’s claimed as recently as this past December that she wants to be a role model to her fans. Whether she should be or not is not the question. Very simply, kids will not always choose the best role models.
The funniest thing about this, as with other instances in the past, is that Miley always seems to be so surprised that this or that photo mysteriously gets posted on the Internet.
That a problem exists is obvious.
A few years ago her parents blamed Vanity Fair, more recently Billy Ray blamed Disney.
Interesting, isn’t it?

Elliot, she said she wants to be a role model in what she does, act, sing, write songs, entertain. I think you are confused as to what a role model is. You seem to think a role model should be fake and model behaviors that they don’t really believe in and that most of us don’t believe in. That’s not a role model, that’s a phony!
