I love Miley Cyrus. From the Hannah Montana days to being this honest, kind, and society-giving soul…Cyrus has always got my back.
I remember me being a crazy fan of her Disney show and rushing home from school to watch the (repeated) episode on time. I would quickly turn on the TV, remove my shoes and socks and tie sitting on the couch, and grab my lunch during the break. I would then do my homework, go outdoors to play with my best friend and come home at six to watch the new episode.
Hannah Montana was a routine. For years.
And I really loved the two girls in it: Miley Cyrus and Emily Osment.
While Osment remained the good girl all throughout, Cyrus turned tables in 2013 with her new album ‘Bangerz’. She ditched her Disney Princess title and good girl image for a more controversial, provocative and wilder image. She twerked and tongue-d, posed naked on Instagram and magazine covers, smoked weed on stage and gave a NSFW tour.
Americans hated on her. Parents signed petitions, kids and youngsters lost their favourite idol, and the media found its newest bad girl.
Cyrus has been bad: dancing wildly, wearing lesser clothes (and often nothing), posting naked selfies, doing nude shoots for magazines and editorials, taking drugs, and probably everything that the glamour world doesn’t reveal.
But Miley Cyrus isn’t that person anymore.
She’s back to being Miley again.
After courting controversies with her new image and facing a troubled love life, the 24-year-old has revamped herself- for the better. She’s hardly seen courting controversies these days and instead spend time on good causes and bringing them to the front.
Cyrus might look fanatic at times, but the girl has become religious and spiritual over the past years. The singer has apparently taken on Hinduism and often celebrates Hindu festivals and rituals. This weekend she ditched Super Bowl for Saraswati Puja – which is an offering to the goddess of learning, art, music and wisdom.
Cyrus performed the Puja in a building near her Malibu house. It seems a Hindu guru was called in to perform the ritual.
Cyrus also decorated the place with rose petals, and large floor cushions and pillows.
Last year the We Can’t Stop singer celebrated Diwali. Her post received warm responses from around the world, especially from Indians.
She might be crazy and wild, but she’s genuinely good-hearted. She devotes her time to Happy Hippie Foundation, that she founded around two years ago, and supports several other causes and charities.
How often do we see a celebrity so transparent? So kind-hearted, real, and giving? Cyrus has been vocal about her election views, marched on the streets for Planned Parenthood, and been racially unbiased towards anyone.
People who think Miley Cyrus is the wild, naked poster of the industry, needs to clean their eyes and see the real MC because she’s nothing but beautiful, inside out.
