Perhaps those in the limelight who face the ultimate public shaming in the tabloids are the stars growing up in the spot light. Miley Cyrus is no better or worse than your average teen, but the tabloids have a habit of showing her in a negative light as she goes through her rebellious teen explorations and mistakes.
Cyrus has constantly been criticized in the tabloids for being too thin, dating older guys, showing too much skin in photos, and of course, who can forget the pot controversy. As soon as she left the safety of Disney’s arms, the now-19 year old faced it all. These are pretty tough hits from the public, especially at such an impressionable age, but if anything, Cyrus has shown young girls exactly how to handle the criticism: with resiliency.
Cyrus has risen from the tabloid ashes and has handled negative comments and confrontations with elegance, and better than most adult stars (ahem, Russell Brand, a.k.a. the paparazzi slayer). Recently in reaction to criticisms that she has been dressing too sexily, she talked to the press about why having sex isn’t taboo, saying that it is the only way the world continues to grow and that self-worth has nothing to do with sex, but instead, self-worth has everything to do with how you feel about yourself — you said it, Miley.
