The Internet!

God! Do you know what, I actually really hate the internet at times. Like, of course, it has it's benefits like world wide connection, the ease of accessibility and having information at your fingertips. However it just exploits EVERYTHING! Well, not the internet per say, but what I mean is that the internet is like an enabler, it allows the users (us) to do whatever we like. So take for instance this whole Miley Cyrus 'phase' thing that everyone is going through. At first she's this sweet, innocent Disney actress/singer person who portrays the role of Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana, in the hit-show 'Hannah Montana'. And then she went 'off the grid' for years and now she's released a song which just happens to have an unruly, eccentric video, she's cut all of her hair off and wears skimpy clothes and everyone basically hates her. I think it's just amazing how much everyone has taken such a sudden distaste to her. 
In my honest opinion I think that because she was so well known from her 'Disney days' that everyone has made a sort of stereotype from what she was like and are comparing it to how she is now. Of course everyone changes and adheres to common trends and the latest fashion styles but I think everyone has just over-reacted to this and it's ridiculous. For instance, why does it even matter what she does and what she wears? And now since the whole VMA performance, everyone thinks she's a massive slut because she was twerking in front of Robin Thicke. But in all honesty, she has become a lot more wild and borderline barbaric but that by no means allows us to judge her in such a way that people start to create spiteful comments and insensitive opinions about her. About the internet relating to this situation in particular, it's like a wildfire. The source of the fire is, in fact, herself and the factors that contribute to the spreading is the internet and media. The thing that really annoys me is the fact that the internet is allowing her to be undermined by its users and there's nothing you can do about it. And that's the cold, hard truth!
