Miley Cyrus was not good
Part of my job is to review concerts. Smaller ones I'll do right here on this blog. Bigger ones, I'll do for the paper.
We've stepped back from covering every single thing that performs at the Qwest, Mid-America Center and Civic Auditorium. Notice that we didn't send anyone to Creed last week.
Well, Miley Cyrus happens to be one of the biggest things in pop culture (I mean, did you hear about people freaking when she deleted her Twitter account last week?).
So, I went. And here, dear readers, are my thoughts on the subject.
Basically, it was a gross display of the Disney machine in action. The whole thing was there to sell more Miley/Hannah Montana merchandise (which parents gladly did), topped off by a 16-year-old girl prancing around in hot pants and showing her ass and cleavage to almost 15,000 people (mostly young girls).
As for the music, it's pretty inoffensive pop stuff. Miley is no Bob Dylan, that's for sure. But she doesn't have the best voice in the world to begin with, and that was hampered even further by the fact she was running around the stage the whole time instead of actually trying to sing.
Ugh. Thank the maker she won't be back for awhile...
