I could care less if a celebrity gets caught smoking weed. Miley Cyrus has boasted her love of the stickiest of the icky before so this is really no surprise. What I do care about is attention-seeking behavior because it drives me crazy and I can sense a lot going on here. You’re in the middle of a major break up. Your relationship status is making headlines every day. You taunt twitter with pics of your engagement ring but haven’t been seen out with your fiance ever since rumors erupted that he cheated. So you decide now is the perfect time to roll a big fatty on a balcony in the middle of Miami with a male friend? Is this the same “assistant” who groped her boobies with his eyes in Miami before? Just checking….
So here we have a plethora of pics of Miley Cyrus smoking what looks a hell of a lot like weed. She’s been under a lot of stress lately. Fine. She’s young and not so smart. I get it. I take that back. Miley isn’t dumb. She’s impulsive. She knew what she was doing sitting on that balcony. She knew paparazzi were around for sure. They’re ALWAYS AROUND. So what’s she trying to prove? That she’s hard core? That she’s totally over the Liam Hemsworth situation? That she’s cool> I always feel like Miley’s trying to prove her coolness.
But I can’t help but be reminded of the Jennifer Lawrence smoking scene from not so long ago. You remember the pics, right? Right after she won the Oscar she was caught smoking weed on the balcony of her Hawaiian hotel room. No one made a big deal out of it because it’s just a joint and everyone loves Jennifer Lawrence. And there’s also the fact that she was mostly by herself and obviously wasn’t doing it for attention. With Jennifer you always get the feeling that she’s oblivious to the fact that people might want to pap her and know what she’s up to. So her reputation got away unscathed. It’s not the same with Miley, right? Miley LOVES the attention and is very aware of her celebrity. She’s a child star after all.
So I had to draw the comparison because it’s too easy. According to numerous tab reports (I know) Miley’s been jealous of Jennifer ever since Liam mentioned she was a cool chick while filming The Hunger Games. Is Miley trying to emulate some of that coolness to win Liam back for good or am I reaching too much this morning? I could be reaching. I just never think Miley is as confident in being Miley as she lets on.
