Life, Liberty, and a Wrecking Ball

So for my first response paper in History, I only had one section of my paper done last night and had to do the rest earlier this morning. This made me very glad that I knew history because at the last-minute, I added details like “E pluribus ulum” which means “from one, is many”. This helped when talking about the melting pot of America, although that isn’t really used a lot until the 19th century when a vast amount of immigrants come over, like the Irish after the Irish Potato Famine. This doesn’t really have to do with the “Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness”, I just thought it’d make a creative title 😛

As for Wrecking Ball, it really is a deep and creative song, one that should be appreciated for the story behind it. BUT… the music video of her swinging on a wrecking ball naked is going a bit too far. I’m sure there are a lot of guys who will be against the hate simply because she’s naked, but they have to realize that little kids, especially preteen girls see this. Although this is meant to be creative, girls should take common sense into consideration and realize that you don’t need to be naked to express yourself, of course scandalously dressing in only under garments isn’t any better. People have to remember that while the world is becoming more liberal in allowing what can and cannot be shown on the t.v., there are still plenty of conservative people who will look down on her because of what she is doing now. This also gives guys the wrong impression on how girls should look. Of course, to y’all who read this, this really doesn’t need any further explanation. Still though, this should be really teaching girls how NOT to express yourself or else you’ll be mainly seen as a sex object. While I say all this criticism, I must say, I do respect Miley Cyrus for being able to deal with these critics head on even with this video and her recent break up. She was raised better than most kids in her business were. This, I attribute to Billy Ray Cyrus’s bringing up and hopefully will trickle down to her later down the road. Maybe we will all be able to forget how somebody wrecked her and gave her the option to rebel in this crazy fashion…
