A couple of weeks ago, we got the Sunday papers, and on the cover of the magazine, there was a picture of some kid I had never heard of.
A few days after that, I was talking to out K8, and I asked her if she had ever heard of this ‘Hannah Montana’. She winced, and told me about her.
Apparently she is a character played by Miley Cyrus and is the latest canon fodder for the teen ‘celebrity’ circus. I decided to do a little research.
I discovered that she has her own television series, and has produced a film. She has also written an ‘autobiography’ [which is a load of bollox because she didn’t write it, therefore it’s a biography], which has sold 50 million copies. She is currently worth in excess of $25 million.
There are a few things that are remarkable about these figures.
The first is that the kid is only sixteen. How the fuck can a sixteen year old write a biography? She hasn’t had a life yet to write about.
The next is that she looks like the kid next door. She doesn’t have two heads or anything interesting like that. She is your typical all American teenager.
She can sing, but I have heard a hell of a lot better down the local pub.
All in all, there is nothing extraordinary about this kid.
There can be one reason only why she is worth such a silly amount, and why her so called biography has sold fifty million copies, and that is that she is a victim of the meeja circus and the Disney corporate greed. The gullible children of the world have been duped once more, and are lapping it up.
I feel sorry for her. She is much too young for such nonsense, and is going to have an incredibly rough ride over the next couple of years. She will eventually be dumped in the gutter as soon as the next ‘big thing’ comes along, and will probably spend the rest of her life wondering what the fuck happened.
The sooner this ‘celebrity’ crap dies the death, the better.
