I know you guys have heard about this video, but I don’t know if you’ve seen it. Well, here it is — Miley Cyrus hitting the bong. Her reps went on to say that she was smoking salvia, not weed, and her dad has gone on the record as sad.
But I’m here to tell you that what we can learn from this video is not a lesson about drugs, but about how to not be a complete asshole, courtesy of the person holding the camera.
Supposedly one of Miley’s friends, one of the first things this chick says as she begins filming is “I’m gonna document the shit out of this.” While I appreciate her turn of phrase, that is some fucked up shit. You can practically see this bitch’s eyes turn into dollar signs even without seeing her face, as she realizes that she is sitting on front of tabloid gold.
This “friend” goes on to egg Miley on to “be honest, tell us what’s on your mind, girlfriend, tell us what’s on your mind…talk to me, talk to me” to which Miley rightfully responds, “are you being as weird as I think you are?”
Finally, she tries to get Miley to hit the bong again, telling her that “you need to do more, you’re not as fucked up as you should be.”
So, sure, Miley could have asked her to turn the video off, and maybe Miley isn’t your favorite person n the world. But honestly? Palling around with someone with the sole intention of then selling them out (because that’s pretty much what this seems like) is dickface behavior — I don’t care who the person is. But IMHO, Miley Cyrus, while I’m not her target audience, doesn’t suck. Like, I wouldn’t feel bad for Mel Gibson if this happened to him. But Miley doesn’t deserve this. She should be able to smoke her “salvia” in peace.
