Miley Cyrus has every reason to be down in the dumps. Her parent’s are splitting up, and there are rumors running rampant that Tish Cyrus had an affair with Bret Michaels. But on a recent trip to the cafe/bakery chain, Panera Bread, in Studio City Nov. 3, the 17-year-old Disney darling didn’t show any signs of a blue mood.
No matter how big a celebrity Miley is — the bottom line is that she is still a 17-year-old teenager AND there is almost nothing worse for any child than to have their family security destroyed. The rug has just been yanked out from under her feet in the most mortifying way: The world now knows Miley’s shameful secret — her mother is an alleged cheater.
“Teenagers are mortified enough by their parents’ behavior even when their parents are perfectly fine,” points out Beverly Hills psychologist Julie Armstrong. “Her mother has brought public shame on her.”
Even though she’s only 17 years old, Miley Cyrus frequently walks around in risqué outfits, dances sexually onstage and even makes out publicly with her boyfriend. However, this doesn’t bother her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus — he says he’s just glad he can be such good friends with his daughter. Did Billy Ray (who filed for divorce from Miley’s mom, Tish, this week) make a huge parenting mistake by trying to be her pal instead of her parent?
Miley “Can’t Be Tamed” Cyrus has been dressing in provocative clothing, going out to 21+ clubs and even making out with her boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth in public. After hearing the news that her parents, Tish and Billy Ray, are separating, Miley’s 180 degree shift to being a “bad girl” makes a lot more sense.
We saw the Miss USA contestants strip down to their skivvies in a porny photo shoot and even came across a video of scantily clad 7-year olds doing a very PG-13 dance to Beyonce’s Single Ladies. Is it all just too much?
