Whilst Miley Cyrus has been dominating headlines over the last month, a Guardian vox- pop has revealed the singer is failing to impress her peer group.
The piece interviews a series of 18-24 year olds from across England and America on their thoughts about the star's penchant for nudity twerking and toungue waggling. The subjects didn't have many positive comments on Miley's transformation.
Sarah Small from London stated: "I think she's gone a bit too far. I don't get it, I don't think it's very attractive and I don't see why she'd want to portray herself like that. She basically seems to be just naked all the time. It's really weird."
Other commentors seemed equally unimpressed. Holly Hawkins from Derberyshire lambasted the singer's shock tactics, saying: "She thinks she's the next Madonna or something, and doing all this is breaking boundaries, but I think it's completely different – she's selling her body and it's not different because it's already been done."
Further comments described the effects as 'damaging' to young girls and to Miley herself along with expressing general apathy towards her intentions. Lillie Eiger from Chicago said: 'I don't see anyone saying: I love Miley Cyrus, I love what she's doing." She's just doing what she's doing and no one else is really caring. Or at least I'm not.
Last week Amanda Palmer wrote an open letter to Miley Cyrus and Sinead 'O Connor, after the two became engaged in a bitter online feud.
