Positive and Negative Attention

Positive and Negative Attention

In the entertainment industry do you think being in the field where you have to promote yourself due to music, acting, cooking, and many other forms of fame can draw positive and negative attention? I think that being famous can bring both positive and negative. Sometimes it can be very clear when a person is trying so hard too get attention that they end up getting negative feedback that might never seem to go away. First impressions are extremely important. Yet sometimes even negative attention can be a source of fame some people look for. Let’s take Miley Cyrus and her recent now famous twerking act on stage at the VMAs in 2013.  miley-cyrus-twerk-vma-2013-robin-thickeMiley is talented at singing but the performance and the way she tried to get the attention I don’t feel did her justice in showing how much talent she really has.

There is a difference between dressing classy, sexy, and trashy. Miley should have dressed sexy for the VMAs and not like she was going to work at a strip club. Image is everything in the entertainment industry I understand you have to dress certain ways depending on the part you are playing in the entertainment field, but the feeling that came across to me with Miley was trashy and not much class of any kind with any talent. If you have never heard of Miley Cyrus and seen the VMA performance you might think “Good Lord what that heck is that girl doing and why is she sticking her tongue out non-stop”

In a business where you always have to compete with other performers showing talent is not always about talent but looks as well. In the above picture we see how Miley took getting attention to a whole other level. According to an interview Miley did with Fashion magazine. 

“I feel like music is really stale right now. I could have guessed what a lot of artists would have done that night. The reaction to what I did has been insane. I think it was a breath of fresh air! For the people who don’t get it, you weren’t meant to.”

I guess in a way Miley is correct about guessing what others might have chosen to do that evening, but I would never want my child to grow up and think in order to get noticed you have to perform like you are on drugs and dress trashy. With Halloween just a few days ago we seen a different side of Miley as she dressed up with the same type of look Lil’ Kim had back at the 1999 VMAs.
