Miley Cyrus parents getting a divorce? According to several reports, Miley Cyrus is staying mum on the whole parental divorce item. The big question is why would anyone expect Miley to divulge any information on her parents divorce? It just doesn’t make sense for the teen star to reveal any information on what should be considered a private matter.
Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish are calling it quits. So far, Miley has yet to comment on the issue. According to On The Red Carpet, Miley is keeping “mum” about the issue. Isn’t that the way it should be? Why should a teenage girl be allowed to talk about her parents divorce? Why should she want to? It just doesn’t seem like the right thing to do. What could Miley Cyrus possibly gain from venting about her frustrations concerning the marriage of her parents falling apart? It’s nice to see that Miley Cyrus is keeping it private. Many young stars would lean toward talking about the issue in relation to what is happening to them. In other words, it wouldn’t surprise some if Miley Cyrus did use an appearance in an interview or late night talk show to vent her emotions.
That just doesn’t seem like the case when it comes to Miley Cyrus. Cyrus has been fairly adamant about keeping her private life private so far. Even though Miley turns 18 in November, she has acted like a much more mature adult compared to her age for some time now. Sure, critics have sometimes referred to a tattoo or something trivial to compare her to a Lindsay Lohan type. But Lindsay Lohan she is not. Miley Cyrus hasn’t been linked to drugs, crazy partying and other wild life styles like the Lohans and Hiltons of the world. Cyrus has instead seemingly focused on the business world and what she can do to become a more diverse artist-whether it’s through acting or singing. The former Hannah Montana star certainly deserves a lot more respect than she often gets in media publications.
So if “mum” is the final word for Miley Cyrus on her parents divorce then good for her. Finally, a young artist is willing to take a stand and let her actions speak louder than her words. It’s nice to see that she is choosing not to vent during a time that is probably emotionally draining for her. Why is this important? It obviously sets a precedent for other young stars to keep mouths shut when it comes to matters that should be deemed personal. Some kid actors seem to believe they are “cool” when they tell every personal detail about their upbringing and family. The problem is that every little detail when tossed out in the public eye could be that much more damaging. These young artists and actors need to know that the damage is multiplied by the forum they are transmitting that information. So Miley Cyrus is exactly on the money when she refuses to dish out information on what has happened with her parents. It’s their business and it’s nice to know that someone isn’t taking sides publicly for once.
What’s next for Miley? I am sure once she turns 18 she’ll probably dig a little bit more into the wilder side since she is legally an adult. I can’t imagine we’ll see Miley posing nude or doing anything that will eventually harm her growing career. She seems to be a smart business girl-and by that she keeps her private business to herself.
This way Miley can control the branding of her own image and allow her parents to live in relative peace without the scrutiny that may come by revealing details of their shaken marriage and pending divorce. I could be completely off base but the actions of Miley certainly seem to represent a young lady who was raised well–even if the result was a divorce. Her staying “mum” is quite refreshing and I hope it stays that way and other young stars follow suit.
