notyomama: Miley Cyrus is punk only if punk actually means "attention whore with daddy issues".


That sums up the first two or three waves of the Punk movement nicely, from Johnny Rotten to Billie Joe Armstrong.

As punk as Billy Ray with a Disney contract, so no. Not at all.

Quite the opposite actually.

Yeah, punk's not about appearance.  That's what all you media-shiathead goons have got wrong for 35 years, same as all the other dumb shiat you've got wrong.

These guys never dressed up for anyone and they were pretty awesome punks:

Punk isn't born from a look.  Your message has to do with society and you must be angry at its faults.  The look reflects this.

I think you're thinking of hipsters.


There is a lot of overlap there.

The real Punks, in the 1970s, would have loved Miley Cyrus, repeatedly, on a dirty soggy mattress. Real Punks were scary people who frequently failed to live very long. They gave you the independent label. Down on your knees and kiss their vomit spattered boots.

Aaaaaand we're done here. This hits the nail on the head. She may come up with the ideas, but her management team carefully researches every little move to make sure they're maximizing their earning potential. You bet your ass that if they tell her not to do something, she'll be listening. The second this whole thing will negatively impact their bottom line, it'll go away and she'll "reinvent herself." Miley Cyrus isn't a person anymore, it's a very carefully controlled brand with a lot of paychecks on the line. Market researching your actions to make sure they appeal to the largest possible audience is about as far from punk as one can get.

/But the fact that the original source of the Slate rebuttal is a terribly written article on Vice, I think we can safely just walk on by.

That was farking awesome

ZeroCorpse: Punk ended in the 80s. Nu-Punk, Pop-punk, and other subgenres continued onward, but actual punk? It's dead.

And if Miley is punk, I don't want to live on this planet anymore.


Depends on how we're defining "punk" of course, but insofar as punk is an ethos and a genre, I can happily assure you there are still lots of great bands hauling their shiat around the country in econoline vans, playing basement shows, personally selling you their CDs, and then crashing on your couch later that night.

Some shiat head who writes for the journalistic equivalent of a College Republican Poetry Club has proclaimed Miley Cyrus "punk as fark." The Slate guy's rebuttal was far too kind. Miley Cyrus is not punk, she's just a stupid little girl who'd be jerking guy's off in the men's room at Crabby Kim's if it weren't for her daddy being a country star.

"And so there I was. I was gonna go to Harvard. It was obvious. I was gonna be a lawyer and play in the God-damned system, and that was that. I was my old man. He knew, so what else could I do? I mean, there's no future in anarchy; I mean let's face it. But when I was into it, there was never a thought of the future. I mean we were certain the world was gonna end, but when it didn't, I had to do something, so fark it. I could always be a litigator in New York and piss the shiat out of the judges.

I mean that was me: a trouble maker of the future. The guy that was one of those guys that my parents so arrogantly saved the world for, so we could fark it up. We can do a hell of a lot more damage in the system than outside of it. That was the final irony, I think. That, and well, this. And "fark you" for all of you who were thinking it: I guess when all was said and done, I was nothing more than a God-damned, trendy-ass poser."

Miley Cyrus is a product. Do you think she has any input into what she wears during her performances? Do you think she writes her own songs?  She barely sings them herself.  She's the meat a company slaps an image onto.

I don't give her any more thought than the guy who dresses up in the Burger King outfit.

She's got those ugly ass tiny teeth on big gums, like Beyonce.

And no, she's not punk. Never angry, smiles too much while whoring for attention.
If she were punk she'd be against everything she stands for... glitz, pop-diva lifestyle...
