"Sex & drink" clue 1


Jailbait gets hacked

Another round of Miley Cyrus “scandal” shots – scandalous for Disney, that is, but totally normal for any sex-obsessed, boy crazed 16 year old. The only difference is that THIS 16 year old has become a brand. A projected billion dollar brand.

Once upon a time, teenagers were simply entertainers, which was bad enough. Nowadays it’s not enough. Nowadays teenagers become corporations. It’s called selling jailbait, the product of parental pimps, greedy as f&ck, getting into bed with media conglomerates turning adolescence into a marketing strategy.

So here’s Miley, taking innocently provocative photos of herself – photos that were supposedly sent to one of the Jonas Brothers. Apparently someone hacked into her email, leaking these shots with the promise of more (and worse) to come.

The most offensive thing about these shots is that mouth. She thinks that mouth is the sh*t. She thinks that pout is the badass.

Jailbait... please!

Needless to say, Miley’s parents and Disney once again find themselves playing defence – who to blame this time? Last go round it was Annie Leibovitz and Vanity Fair, accusing them of taking advantage of a young girl who didn’t know better.

But this time, it’s Miley’s camera, Miley’s inbox. So what’s the spin now? How do they protect their commodity while depriving it from the experiences every teen is curious about and entitled to?

And still, every weekend at the mall, they come in droves: moms and dads lining up at the “talent agent booth” hoping their precious darling will become the “next”. Pimping is now an honourable profession?
