Miley Cyrus, Occupier Poster Girl

Pages: 1 2

She’s perfect. Miley Cyrus, Hollywood’s perpetually half-dressed wild child with an insatiable appetite for attention, jumped in front of the Occupy Wall Street bandwagon this week. The young Disney mogul unveiled a YouTube anthem hailing the aimless, anti-capitalist protesters. Smells like opportunistic teen queen spirit.

Like so much of the warmed-over, Big Labor-underwritten Occupy movement, Miley’s musical tribute to its foot soldiers is a worn-out derivative remix. She took “Liberty Walk,” a year-old single; spliced in video footage of union marchers carrying carbon-copy “TAKE BACK OUR DEMOCRACY” signs; tossed in random scenes of global discontent from London to China to San Diego to Salem, Oregon; slapped on a treacly dedication to “the thousands of people who are standing up for what they believe in” (like, whatever that is); stirred; auto-tuned; and released:

“Sayin’ goodbye to the people who tied you up/ It’s a liberty walk, walk/ Feelin’ your heart again/ Breathin’ new oxygen/ It’s a liberty walk, walk/ Free yourself, slam the door, not a prisoner anymore!”

Somehow, all the Occupier outbreaks of lice, public defecation, property destruction and rape got left on the cutting room floor.

Hipsters are horrified by the Hollywood hijacking. To borrow a favorite Occupier phrase, they rained “downtwinkles” on the starlet. One Occupy activist prominently distanced herself from Hannah Montana, Teen Revolutionary, and issued a challenge. Priscilla Grim, an Occupy flack, told the website TMZ that while Miley’s music video “‘rocks’ in spirit … she doubts the singer has the guts to actually hit the streets.” Grim dared “Ms. Cyrus” to “fight on the front line of economic civil rights” and join the agitators at Los Angeles City Hall.

    good lord…who broke Miley's arm and surgically attached the left side of her body to that blonde-haired woman?!

  • Jim

    Miley has got it right. This article might be persuasive to people who know nothing about the Occupiers.except what Limbaugh,Fox, Michael Savage and and pro Wall Streeters tell them.
    Crude hatched jobs are better aired in the tabloids.

    Jim, you have got to be kidding. A multimillionaire 1%er is the new poster girl for the OWS movement? Come back and comment when Miley shares her wealth with the rest of the country and helps pay down the national debt.

    Few can match the standard of vacuousness established by Anchor Baby. Even Palin has more gravitas.

  • Flash Political

    Saw this coming long ago. It's written on that Achy Breaky Heart.

  • Hype

    Why Miley is called a 'wild child' but by fact she's not! She is just being herself, no hypocrites! She still has her parents with her and watching her closely. Aren't this people aware that they are talking bad about someone's daughter? This world is free, she is free to think what she thinks and free to choose on how she likes to contribute to the community .. Give her a break ..
