Miley Cyrus isn’t your typical 18-year old teen celebrity. She’s in fact the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus and you know where she got her talent, right?
If you think she’s a talentless skank, she’s just doing showy things for fun. If in her concerts, if you think she acts like a slut, nope, she ISN’T.
Alright. After we knew that she smokes, has a lot of tattoos and shit, I think it’s time for you to quit hating Miley because… there are a lot of good things I’d like to describe her.
1.) She instills good values and she’s family-oriented.
2.) She’s not any other celebrity who has good, catchy songs but has no meaning at all.
3.) I know a lot of people who are really “hot” and good-looking, but I look at the attitude. Miley may not have those “spectacular good looks,” but I think she’s got swag in her.
4.) She deserves more respect that Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna, Lady GaGa and Taylor Momsen. Yes, most of you admire these five “bad guys” that I’m talking about, so you have to know why Miley deserves more respect than these celebrities, if you know what I mean. In short, as far as morality and reputation is concerned, Miley is better than these five people combined.
5.) She observes good manners and is respected by Filipinos who really admire her not only as a celebrity, but as a person.
I don’t get it why people seem so GaGa over these five people…
Megan Fox – She’s hot, aright… but there’s something really wrong. She looks bitchy, she’s trying so hard to be a slut and she was lambasted by Michael Bay loyalists. Come on, she cannot be compared to Angelina Jolie, alright. Angelina’s so slim while Megan’s really… just hot, nothing really special.
Lindsay Lohan – She still can recover from her condition, but there seems to be a problem. One time, she’s got some punishment for not complying with her rehab…, y’know what I mean. She’s got a face, some tits and shiz, but yes… she’s wasted.
Rihanna – Remember the Chris Brown incident? She was abused simply because… Chris Brown cheated on her. She went back to him but it didn’t last. Oh, and her really bizarre transformation from simple girl to the edgy type really didn’t suit her.
Lady GaGa – At first, the “GaGa” was a bad word to me. (Remember I’m not an American, nor an American citizen, that is.) Her outfits, from burlesque to the most bizarre… I think that creeps me out.
Taylor Momsen – Ehem. The worst juvenile delinquent is showing her tits. Now Perez Hilton’s gots lotsa advice to her to simply focus on her music and not on her outlandish tactics. Being so edgy and being an attention whore at the same time won’t really make her career as good as those damn good musicians. Real music doesn’t really mean you’re the coolest!
Miley’s better, as for me
Although I’m not really a fan of her, I think she deserves more respect and admiration compared to those who have several issues. Miley only had I think, a few and those are the nude photo scandals… but that’s alright.
People lambast her for being out-of-fashion while Taylor Momsen is praised for being so fashion-updated. Ehem. Who would like such a minor (BTW, Momsen’s legal now) who dresses up like a hooker and is featured in Revolver magazine? It wasn’t until she admitted why she was rebellious, that her parents stole her childhood. That’s also in La Lohan’s condition. Now, you know why there are some people who admire someone for their outlandishness, which is like, @_@.
Everyone thinks that Miley is just lucky, but as for me, she should be thankful of being blessed with a good family, a good career and some positive feedback.
It’s like one vs. 100, that Miley stands out right, together with Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, or maybe with Vanessa Hudgens.
Why do I have to say this?
In the Philippines, it’s 1 vs. 100 in terms of feistiness. Cristine Reyes is a loser compared to Katrina Halili, Marian Rivera, Alessandra de Rossi or Annabelle Rama. In Hollywood, Paris Hilton defeats her. See? Someone who is falsely feisty is defeated by real feisty and bitchy people who easily learn their lesson, and at least has a fucking good side.
If Katrina Halili doesn’t talk about her personal life (same with Paris), Alessandra de Rossi controlled her tactlessness or Annabelle Rama showed her soft side, Cristine… is just too showy. Like, food… weh? Food is for the body… but for the brain? Start eating a lot of peanuts! That helps, alright! Yes, showy in a sense that no one should stop hating her because… she’s showy. That’s it. No other fucking good side at all. Hindi siya natatauhan. Mataas ang pride niya talaga in such a way that she wanted more and more fame. Who wants that, anyway? If Angelina Jolie is always portrayed as an attention whore, truth is, she’s targeted for her charity works. People accuse her for being too showy that she’s a good mom if in fact she’s not… actually, she’s just rejecting her own father’s mistake. She is showing her father how he should realize that he doesn’t even have to leave someone for his own pleasure. Kaya nga naging wild-child siya, eh.
Guys, if you have to judge someone based on looks and talent, I think it’s time for you to look at the attitude, the swag. Good looks and talent are just, a prized possession but it doesn’t mean these are scapegoats to doing mistakes. People don’t want to do mistakes, but it’s inevitable. If those mistakes are done more than once, it’s either an unintentional act of forgetfulness or simply, a choice.
Julia Roberts? Kate Hudson? Jennifer Aniston? EHEM. Romance and comedy are not really a good idea in Tinseltown. I am really not a fan of romcoms, and will never ever be. Sci-Fi movies fascinate me, or maybe Sci-Fi comedy. Hmmm… I’m not really a romance fan, like Twilight and shit. Dunno.
1.) It is only applicable to anime.
2.) Romance and comedy are exposed in bad limelight.
3.) It gives love a really bad name.
5.) Unless if it’s an Eddie Murphy movie, it sucks. Period.
Romantic comedies are so overacting, like romance is exposed in bad limelight. Everything is more focused on sex, some shit that I really do not understand and worst… they’re just like Adam Sandler’s movies or even worse… Jim Carrey’s. I don’t get why most people really LOVE these movies if in fact, they’re not really as successful and entertaining as the rest of comedy, within Eddie Murphy standards.
If compared to Korean romantic comedies, I think K-drama romcoms are becoming at-par with Tinseltowns, if before, Goong really made my heart laugh. Boys Over Flowers was also good, outsmarting Meteor Garden. Hmmm…
Honestly, I didn’t like My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. Maybe because I find K-dramas overrated, or maybe because I much prefer Filipino romantic comedies (yes, this is really my nationalistic side. I much prefer Filipino dramas over K-dramas, or American drama) over the rest of what we know today. Prob’ly because Filipinos have a greater sense of humor as compared to Americans. Oh, and I have to admit. I love comedies that predominantly has African-American actors (Eddie Murphy, Chris Tucker, Whoopi Goldbrg and Martin Lawrence rock ass!). If you’re gonna watch American comedy, make sure there are African-Americans out there. I love black comedians over white ones. I dunno why, but they’re really the funniest people. xD
Maybe it’s because I’m really hard to please when it comes to comedy. When it comes to Rush Hour series, NO, not even a single romantic comedy would surpass its level of “classicism.” Classic comedies are watched non-stop, and you won’t really get sick and tired of it.
I really didn’t like Friends, or maybe because they’re more adult-oriented. I mean, those comedies that are for the general public are really classic, non-stop and not shitting you out.
If you ever watch a romantic comedy movie, make sure that Eddie Murphy or Ben Stiller are in those movies. BTW, they are collaborating in Tower Heist. I wanna watch it so bad! xD
If you think that a singer has ONE TONE of music, that’s a sign of identity.
If you think a person is TRYING WAY TOO HARD to imitate some singing sensation, what he/she does is talent.
If you think that person looks ridiculously unattractive, he/she is more attractive than those whom you “idolize.”
I would really laugh if…
You think that Sarah Geronimo has no fashion sense (aka baduy) and tries too hard to imitate the way a singer sings.
You think that Yeng Constantino is ugly.
You think that Aegis sounds boring.
Compare and Contrast
Sarah Geronimo has talent! Real talent, that is. You won’t truly appreciate Charice if you don’t listen to Sarah Geronimo’s songs.
Yeng Constantino is cute, lovable and adorable. If you think that the Kate Hudson before her second pregnancy is really cute and attractive, and way much more than Yeng, fuck it’s really ridiculous. I personally don’t find small eyes and flat nose fit for a Caucasian woman, really.
Aegis has only one tone of music but they still manage to have originality. Barbie Almalbis sounds really cool. Hale is way better than Cueshe, to be honest.
I really do not look at the quality of music nor the face value. I look at the attitude and the message of the song. I can actually relate to roxyisferox’s sentiments. If you think that Pop Girls and XLR8 are “baduy,” well as for her, she thinks that these P-Pop bands have the raw voice to sing. Yes, that’s right. She looks at the quality of tone.
I’d really laugh if you think that Rihanna’s songs are better than Miley’s, because to be honest with you, Miley’s songs have a lot of messages and lessons, unlike Rihanna’s, nor Taylor Momsen’s. Yes, if you compare between pop/rock songs and songs with messages, that’s right. I’d choose the latter.
If you think that “street music” sounds so “baduy” and annoying, well it has more message than you think. Quit idolizing those people who sing without meaning at all! If you listen to songs that come from the words of a self-confessed drug addict, you’ll really feel how he/she felt the hardships. Such example like Amy Winehouse, she really lived her music. Her songs like “Rehab” is like listening to Taylor Swift’s country songs, which actually caught the hearts of the young generation. Both Winehouse and Swift lived their songs. Miley’s songs have messages, Beyonce makes you feel more confident… Lady GaGa’s weirdness will make you more open-minded. Oh, by the way Lindsay Lohan has also lived her music as well… which is at-par with Amy Winehouse’s.
To those who know Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller and Chris Tucker… you might as well be a true fan of comedy. Yes, that’s right. Most of their comic actions are from their way of joking. Eddie Murphy’s creativity earned him a good name. His films such as Norbit, The Nutty Professor series and Coming to America were the most prolific. He’s really a genius when it comes to productive and creative comedy, same with Ben Stiller… but in Stiller’s case, he’s more of the family-friendly type. He’s also kid-friendly, he’s like your typical family-oriented dude who just wanted to make everyone happy. Lastly, Chris Tucker, the guy from Rush Hour series, deserves a real, authentic break for being the comic behind Rush Hour. Yes, Chris Tucker’s the tall, dark and handsome comedian whom you wanna marry. It’s all thanks to this guy that I could not get sick of tired watching the whole Rush Hour series.
Those people who also deserve credit is Mike Myers (he’s also a good one, but his voice as Shrek might have earned him much better fame) or Jack Black (he’s also good, but he would’ve pulled it off when he’s a voice actor). Other actors who have done a great job are Jackie Chan and Robert Downey, Jr., who are comic actors who do serious films as well. That’s what I call, versatility. A good comedian should also do serious things is because… it’s a form of talent.
These are the only comedians I could think of… but wait! There’s Whoopi Goldberg. The Sister Act series star is not only an actress and a comedian, but her political activities also make her deserve a one-of-a-kind credit. Same with Ellen DeGeneres, she’s not only a good comedienne but also a caring, loving and considerate person.
Most of the people I’ve mentioned here in the Comic thingy… are good actors.
People who love comedy should also appreciate Rowan Atkinson… never mind the Mr. Bean thingy.
The British comedian did his best shot in Johnny English. He proved that he can speak properly despite being Mr. Bean himself. Rowan Atkinson may look funny, but in Johnny English he tries so hard to look serious… and act serious. I think he deserves a good reward for being err… a comic.
Quality over Popularity
Yes. I do look at quality.
If you think that good-looking people are extremely talented, intelligent… well you rarely find that. It’s a rarity. If you think that all pop songs are cool, I think you’re wrong. Only a selected few would qualify. Most of these good songs comes from African-American artists who experienced real-life hardships. These people usually have more talent than those who are the elite. They earn their own money by their hardwork, their efforts… but most of them do not have effort at all just to sing or be a comedian. Expect that most comedy films starring most African-Americans are the funniest… and will make your stomach ache, literally.
It’s the other way around
If you think that Arnold Schwarzenegger is a good actor… he’s for comedy than action.
Yes, he’s really for action-comedy movies such as Kindergarten Cop, etc. is because of his funny accent. I love it when he makes people laugh although he’s serious. I hope he’s gonna make a German-language film… soon.
This has part two, so yeah. 🙂
