Really, does it really impact your decision to let your child watch Hannah Montana? For me, no, it doesn’t. I look at it this way. If, by chance (although it be a small chance) that my daughter was approached to do a photo shoot with Annie Leibovitz, I would not and could not turn it down. Now, that being said, I know I will get a lot of slack from it, but you know what? You all have to remember she is a person first, an actress & singer second. As a parent of a young girl, I think it is a beautiful, natural looking photo and to have it captured by a leading, famous photographer, I would think it would be an honor for my daughter. I do not think it portrays Miley in a bad way or in a way that should harm her career. I know there have been many actors/resses that that done things and have turned out just fine, coming to mind is Brook Shields in Blue Lagoon. Gosh, I remember when all that came out and look at where she has gone and come to in her career. What about all those younger girls posing for photos on the covers of major magazines in sexy and provocative clothing, appearing to be older than they really are? It is a part of their job. What is it that is creating all this attention? Is it her age? Is it that she appears to be naked? Is is that when someone said, I don’t like the photo, she decided to backtrack and say neither does she? Now she has to go along with those that disagree with her photo and go against her original feelings of the image? For what? I would have much rather heard her and her parents come out and say, “We are proud of Miley, we stand by her and the choice that we all made to have this photo taken”. It was taken for Vanity Fair people, not a sleeze ball magazine! Right now it just sounds as if they have to show face to keep Miley’s career in tact. It’s a shame that we cannot express ourselves anymore whether it be in writing, speaking, and photo’s!
Please share your thoughts on this topic. Hang in there Miley fans, I think there are more good things to come from her and she should not be afraid, EVER, to express herself.
