Miley Cyrus is glamourous!

I don't want to be a hater. I also don't want to give off the impression that I specifically hate Miley Cyrus, because in reality I don't hate Miley Cyrus. I don't know Miley, and besides her proclivity for mentioning Jesus and purity a lot I bet we could be really good friends. Why not. 

But I seriously have a problem with her being on the cover of Glamour magazine. She is sixteen years old. Glamour magazine is a magazine for adult women. I'm honestly not sure what angle they're taking on this one...(more)

Are adult women connecting to Miley as if she were their own child? Do they look up to her? Both of those options freak me out. I think it comes down to the fact that the celebrities our society worships in general are getting younger and younger every year. Want to talk about letting these teen celebrities be kids? Maybe don't put them on the cover of an adult magazine.

I read the interview online, and honestly it didn't bother me so much as the entire concept of her being the covergirl did. Although she does seem to conveniently slip in the many life lessons she's learned over the nanosecond she's been famous and write off some racial insensitivity behavior as "learning." Oh yeah and the whole thing about how she's in love with a 20-year-old. But thats a whole different story that I'll get into some other time.
