Stylin’ with Miley Cyrus
By: George Caroll
The soon-to-be 20-year-old artist formerly known as squeaky-clean Disney star Hannah Montana has, in recent years, shown a penchant for shaking up good-girl expectations. There was the lap dance, the partying with a bong, the risqué cake and now, in her latest stunt, cashing in her trademark long locks for a short, platinum punk cut and nose ring.
Miley has been expressing nothing but utter delight in her new look. She immediately changed her Twitter avatar to show off her dramatic, pixie-dream-girl look and declared she “never felt more me in my whole life” and that she’s “feeling so happy in my skin.” Yet not everyone shares Ms. Cyrus’ enthusiasm. A pretty young girl cutting her hair? It’s a cry for help, right? Is Cyrus “pulling a Britney” referring to that singer’s notorious 2007 head-shaving meltdown?
Miley’s rather masculine and avant-garde hairstyle is really a love-it or hate-it thing and will undoubtedly take some getting used to among her fans and followers but, hey, it’s Miley’s bod and she has a right to make some changes. Love it or hate it, ya gotta give her props for deciding to try a totally new look.
