The New Miley Cyrus
I have to admit, I am saddened. I was hoping this day wouldn't come. I was hoping we were just being over-protective...but here we are. I'm sure some of you have heard about the new upcoming Vanity Fair spread with Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus. In one of the pictures, she's wrapped in a silk bedsheet, exposing her back. It's just too risque, and she's only fifteen. But, if you look further on the internet, there are pictures of her in even more risque settings. I won't link to them, because they are linked to worse stuff. Here's a bloglink with a picture from the Vanity Fair spread and one other from Myspace-with a warning that she is pulling down her shirt and showing her bra in one picture. You can do a google search for yourself for the rest, if you need. It's really disheartening for me. I've heard so much about her strong, Christian family...so much about her strong upbringing...so much about how sweet and pure she is. She's young, and there is so much out there for her right now trying to pull her in the wrong direction. Unfortunately, she's not continuing to uphold the wholesome image she shows in her Disney show. Let's keep her in our prayers, but let's continue to be wise as serpents when it comes to who we have as role models for our children.
