Tim Gunn: Miley Cyrus needs a bitch slap, ‘she needs to be shocked into listening’


I try not to promote violence, although I used to be a fan of “So-and-so needs a good slap” hyperbole. But I’m a pretty peaceful person. I get the feeling that Tim Gunn is a pretty peaceful person too. He seems like the kind of man who prides himself on having an even temper, a man who a low tolerance for melodrama and neurosis and acts of violence. But Tim Gunn is at his wit’s end with one particular person. In Touch Weekly spoke to Tim and they asked him what he thought of Miley Cyrus. His answer was surprisingly tinged with violence!

Self-proclaimed “semi-nudist” Miley Cyrus has been making head turns lately with some of her style choices and clothes — or lack thereof — lately. One person who is decidedly not a fan of her new look? Tim Gunn!

In Touch caught up with the 60-year-old fashion icon at the Nespresso Pop-up Shop, where he revealed that he’s been “horrified” by the 20-year-old’s recent fashion choices lately.

So what advice would Tim — who has lent his keen fashion eye to countless aspiring fashion designers on Project Runway — say to Miley? Nothing, apparently!

“I don’t think I would say anything to her,” he told In Touch. “I think I would haul off and give her a great big bitch slap. She needs to be shocked into listening.”

Miley knows a thing or two about shock value; last month, the pop singer told Fashion magazine that she knows her very particular taste may scare people, but that it’s “better to be stylish than trendy.”

She added that her musical mentor and style guru Pharrell said that it’s not what she’s wearing, but how she wears it — a lesson she said she took to heart.

“I think it is important that I execute a look better than other people,” she told the mag. “Fashion is what separates me from everyone else.”

Unfortunately for Miley, Tim revealed that her attitude isn’t much better than her style choices — he told In Touch that the two were on-set together for Sex and the City 2 and called her behavior “torturous.”

I would pay money to see Tim Gunn bitch-slap Miley. Or would I? I do think Tim is just talking about what “someone” should do to Miley, I doubt Tim would ever slap her. He would yell at her though. He would look at her, slowly taking in the tongue, the Terry Richardson photos, the high-waisted booty shorts that only emphasize the fact that Miley has no booty… and Tim would just shake his head and whisper, “Honey, no. NO.”

    I doubt Miley gives a rat’s ass about Gunn’s opinion of her and her look. She’s sexually liberated while he, by his own admission, has not had sex in decades. Maybe he should take a page out of her book…

    • NeNe says:

      What would he take out of her book??? How to be trailer trash! How to be a famewh*re??? What could he possibly take out of it!

    • blue marie says:

      Since it was his admission, don’t you think it was his decision? No need to knock his choices.

      • Brittaki says:

        I agree, Lisa. I was so distracted by her huge veneers in the “Wrecking Ball” video that I couldn’t even pay attention to the song.

      • ncmagnolia says:

        And the dry-mouth Molly saliva strings…lest we forget that by dwelling on the equine-like veneers.

        Tim totally rocks fashion, he’s un under-appreciated demi-God of style and his observations about Molly…errr, *Miley* are dead on.

        Let’s give Tim’s critique of Miley and her “style”/ behaviour a slow…CLAP.

        That’s all I’ve got.

    • Birdix says:

      For better or worse, I think Miley’s fans appreciate her not giving a rat’s ass about people like TG. From all the screaming on the Today show, they are buying the inane “I am who I am and this is who I must be” blather and this will solidify her as anti old-people establishment blah blah. It’s all so brilliantly mindless.

      • Kat says:

        “It’s all so brilliantly mindless”

        Nailed it.

        And I would pay to see Tim Gunn slap the oversized veneers out of that white trash tramp’s horse mouth.

    • Maya Memsaab says:

      Not having the ability to hold a single note, talking incessantly about one’s bum and having the insight of a turnip is so liberating, no? Playing into the incredibly insipid, narrow minded, Terry Richardson’s vision of female sexuality is just brimming with emancipation.

      Mary Wollestonecraft would’ve been proud. *Eye roll*

    • Joy says:

      Having sex does not sexual liberation; knowing who you are sexually is. Tim knows who he is; Miley is just a marketing ploy and mimics a tired mantra.

    • Monkey Towz says:

      I had a dream several months ago that I had sex with TG. Don’t know where that came from but he’s getting laid in my subconcious brain!

      • Stubbylove says:

        OMG that is awesome! HUGE MAD LOVE for The Gunn. He’s completely right about Cyrus. Patricia – you can bugger off.

    • emmie_a says:

      Tim has more intelligence, class, grace and fashion-sense than Miley will ever have. He doesn’t need any pages from her book of crap. He has actual talent, he doesn’t need all she has to offer: shock value, which will get old real fast.

      And just curious – does Molly make people delusional? Among her many delusions, Miley thinking that fashion is what separates her from everyone else is beyond insane.

      • Christin says:

        Well said. I laughed when I read her “better” fashion quote. I also enjoyed the booty short comment and how it does emphasize she has no booty. She wants to show off things she simply doesn’t have.

    • Bopit says:

      I’m pretty sure, last time I checked, that it’s entirely a personal decision to have sex when and with whom one wants to? Is that not an option anymore? I didn’t know that Miley’s in-your-face sexuality meant we all had to do the same.

    • Feebee says:

      So you equate what Miley’s doing as sexually liberating? Hmm. And that not having sex is an inferior state of being? And how exactly should Tim Gunn take a leaf out of Miley Cyrus’s book? No, I think that’s a book better left closed.

    • Leila in Wunderland says:

      Ah, Patricia. I applaud you for your bravery, but be prepared for a massive pile-on, schoolgirl style. Your sexually liberated opinion will not be tolerated here. The general consensus is that nudity, sexual openness, and the freedom to dance and dress however one pleases Cannot Be Liberating For Any Woman. As a matter of fact, whenever a female celebrity does such a thing, It Is Exploitation and it is corrupting the poor, innocent youth of America. Look through the Miley section, the Christina section, the Rihanna section, the Madonna section, and the Beyoncé section and you’ll see what I mean.

      Better yet, just look at the Sinead O’Connor letter and the praise it got. That about sums it up. :)

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        How is Miley more sexually liberated than Tim Gunn? At best, they’re both liberated. Just because Tim made a personal decision not to have sex at all, doesn’t mean this his opinions are any less valid.

        Miley has already said in interviews that she does these things to get attention and to get people to buy her music. We’ll see if it does translate into album sales or not, but most people aren’t talking about her music. They’re talking about all the stuff she’s doing–I don’t see that as liberation. She’s doing all of that as a gimmick.

      • blue marie says:

        Can you clear something up for me Leila. I have read your other posts and appreciate your opinion but in those posts you have said how a woman chooses to dress does not = being loose, virginal or what have you. So which is it? As far as I know, and I’ve read the posts, Miley has never (at least recently) commented on whether or not she likes sex. Just because she dresses that way does not mean she’s sexually liberated, Patricia is making an assumption based on her clothes. So why applaud one while condemning others for doing the same thing?

      • emmie_a says:

        How you can possibly summarize the general consensus of celebitchy comments about certain women in a few sentences? I guess you did just that but you got it all wrong. Maybe stick with your own opinions and don’t talk for the group.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        Patricia said that Miley Cyrus is sexually liberated, and I applauded her bravery for voicing that opinion. Why? Because the most popular opinion *here*- here being the internet- seems to be that no woman can feel liberated by being free to literally wear whatever she wants or be naked in a photoshoot because these things only hurt/exploit women and corrupt the young generation. When women express the ‘it’s liberating, or I feel empowered’ opinion, they are often quickly and condescendingly dismissed as being brainwashed or controlled. I then referred Patricia to the Miley section, the Madonna, the Rihanna, the Christina, and the Beyoncé sections of this site as an example, since that’s where we are. I also referred her to the posts about Sinead O’Connor’s letter and all of the praise it got.
        Basically my point was that Patricia’s opinion that Miley is sexually liberated would be quickly shot down and dismissed in a pile-on. Which it was, so point proven.

        I didn’t shame Tim Gunn for not having sex. Is Miley Cyrus sexually liberated? Is Tim Gunn sexually liberated? I didn’t give my own opinion on either. Personally, I feel that someone can be sexually liberated in some ways and sexually repressed in other ways. Tim Gunn very well may be sexually liberated whether he’s having sex or not. If he’s satisfied with his own sexual decisions then yes, he is sexually liberated in that way. However, a person’s open-mindedness towards others choices can also be a test of whether or not they’re sexually liberated.

        Is Miley sexually liberated? On the open-mindedness part of sexuality, she seems to be, especially compared to where she was a few years ago. At 15 she was promoting sexual purity not because it was what she believed in, but because it was what others told her to do. She was blaming other people for her decisions when it came to her sexuality, and she was getting all down and apologetic when people slut-shamed her. Now, she has spoken up for marriage equality and doesn’t seem to be trying to avoid people calling her names for the way she dresses and dances. So in that one part of sexuality, she is liberated. But I don’t know anything about her sex life, so she may or may not be sexually liberated when it comes to activity. Sexual liberation is more about feelings and motives than it is about actual activity.

      • Kiddo says:

        With due respect, you can’t be inside Miley’s head and know what her true motivations are either. I couldn’t say. She has said that she does it for attention, other times she calls it art or a movement. No one knows how much is a classic striptease for the masses and how much is a real demonstration of her sexuality. This is further complicated by the fact that the images of Miley are created by Richardson, who, when doing the “light porn” shots, only creates a variation of every other light porn shot he has done with others before.

        There are women who have outwardly expressed sexuality, but did so for the attention and a boost in their careers, in the not so distant past, before the feminist movement. It’s a weird dichotomy that today’s liberation was yesterday’s chains. The displays are not dissimilar to old time attention seeking to please the opposite sex and draw attention to one’s self for what was perceived as a woman’s greatest asset and power: her looks and sexual attractiveness.

        “Maybe I’m a sexless sex goddess.” - Marilyn Monroe to Life magazine journalist Richard Meryman, 1961

      • Marty says:

        But by Miley’s own admission, everything she’s doing is for shock value. So if she’s doing it for other people’s reaction and opinions, not for herself, is it still liberation? I’m seriously asking. I don’t have a problem with nudity or overt sexulality but if feels like Miley is doing it for people to talk about her, not really for herself.

      • Joy says:

        What Patricia wrote was to equate Miley’s behavior with sexual liberation while Tim’s personal admission of his asexuality as the opposite. This is a problematic statement because sexual liberation is about the person’s ability to choose for their own good, despite societal pressure. Tim was brave in his elegant admission about his personal choice, despite the fact that it’s not a popular situation. He is by that account sexually liberated because he made his own choice, which is admirable and not to be downtrodden.

        To knock one personal choice, as Patricia did, to advocate another is to further confuse the matter.

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        And the difference on self respect and attention is right here, folks.

      • Ginger says:

        Christina has the pipes, Beyoncé the attitude and talent, Sinead whatever her flaws is a TRUE bad azz, Rhianna again has the talent although I don’t always approve of her methods and Miley could be right up there with them if she kept her tongue in her mouth and her immature comments to herself. These things are obscuring her musical talent period.

    • kiddo says:

      I don’t know. I think that claiming she is sexually liberated is an assumption. Exhibitionism of body parts and sexuality are not precisely the same thing, although they can overlap.

      Tim is a fashion statesman, if you will. I don’t think he really cares what Miley does with her sex life. He was making commentary on taste and fashion, but the bitch slap thing seemed out of character for him.

      I think he should also consider bitch slapping Heidi for some of her personal style choices. Not that they are overtly sexual, but because they are awful. Maybe he could smack Kors out of the black uniform as well.

    • Gretchen says:

      Sexually liberated can also mean making a choice not to engage in sexual activities. As long as your sexual choices are your own and entered into without coercion, they are liberated choices.

    • Annie says:

      The difference, Patricia, is that this was his own adult, informed decision. He wasn’t doing it to get attention or because he needed a new look to sell a product.

      Being sexually liberated does not equal being a hot mess, and an idiot.

    • Jane says:

      Oh Patrica, if that’s what sexually liberated looks like to you I can only laugh. Tim Gun is wise and awesome. You’re a fool to prefer the pseudo philosophies of an attention crazed 20 year old.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      Miley may or may not be sexually liberated. She’s never invited the media into her bedroom.

      All we really know is she’s a narcissist addicted to attention.

      • Hypocrisy says:

        That a hundred times !

        She is a PROFESSIONAL exhibitionist who does it publicly and ONLY during a professional public exercise routine for…$$$$$$$$.

        She becomes automatically and suddenly liberated when all the cameras are on her selling her products. (Sarcasm)

        The so called sexual liberation is just an old professional marketing gimmick, an exploitative stunt aimed at increasing exposure during her perf in the hope of generating easily maximum cash.

        Sex sells and once it is milked with $$$, it is never about sexual liberation…it is about the easiest and old route to get $$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

        Sexually liberated ? MY a$$$ !

    • diva says:

      Dressing like a damn fool and getting naked whenever you can is NOT being sexually liberated. It’s fame whoring. She can be sexually liberated and keep her clothes on and her tongue in her mouth.

    • joan says:

      “Maybe he should take a page out of her book…”

      Yeah, like she HAS a book. Or has ever read one. Please.

      And anyone who would even talk about her in the same breath as Tim Gunn is unfathomable.

    • Kat says:

      I think you’re way off the mark here. She claims to be “liberated”, but she’s actually created her own type of prison in which she needs to over-expose herself in order to feel validated & relevant. This kid’s either too stupid or too uneducated (or possibly both) to realize that she’s not rebelling against the status quo, but rather, conforming to it.

      Gunn’s comment was short and to-the-point, but I agree with him. Sexual liberation is not an issue, but when you present your persona & style to the world, you’re not just displaying your fashion sense, but also your sense of respect for yourself and for those around you. Miley seems to possess neither. If anything, her idiotic, money grubbing parents are the ones who deserve the biggest bitch slap!

  2. skyler10 says:

    I always loved Tim Gunn but love him even more now.

  3. Andrea says:

    I like Tim Gunn and I think Miley has issues but I genuinely don’t care what Tim Gunn thinks of a young woman’s style. Fashion “expert” or not he is not her contemporary nor her intended audience.

    • Arock says:

      Agree on all points. Miley’s thing is being an entertainer, appealing to one group and attention from another.
      Tim gunn is a precious, precious man, though.

  4. NeNe says:

    I LOVE TIM GUNN!!!! Miley is becoming the trailer trash I always knew she was. I can’t wait until her 15 minutes are up! I personally think she has ZERO talent!

  5. missmerry says:

    that makes no sense “better to be stylish than trendy”

    so your tattoos aren’t trendy? you’re bear bodysuit isn’t trendy? the hipsters in your videos aren’t trendy? the moves you choose to use when you dance aren’t trendy? wearing all-white is not ‘stylish’, it’s a trend (at least the way she is doing it and talking about it). If she wears all white for the rest of her career, it will be ‘stylish’ when she grows up, but you know she won’t wear all white forever, so it’s a trend…her hair is going to get longer too…trend…

    you’re wrong, kid. and that’s OK, kids are supposed to be wrong and they always believe themselves to be right, it’s just extreme in this case because she’s in the public eye and running her ignorant mouth. If I had reporters repeating the idiot things I said when I was 21, I’d be so embarrassed when I was 22…

    a trend is of-the-moment, which is exactly what everything she does is: it’s all very 2013 and will fade as fast as it was introduced because it’s trendy, not stylish.

  6. Applapoom says:

    Wow, Miley is getting so much coverage and I bet she is laughing all the way to the bank. Who knew being annoying would pay off so well?

    She is also way too skinny now, and I don’t say this too often. When I see Rihanna, who is also annoying I do see her sex appeal, but with Miley I just do not see it. At all.

  7. blue marie says:

    Her fashion is crap and I can’t believe she’d name drop Pharrell as being the reason. Also, I love Tim Gunn, and don’t think he’d ever smack someone but I get what he’s saying.

  8. PoliteTeaSipper says:

    I’ve always adored Tim Gunn and do so even more now. Patricia, what you have said is incredibly ignorant. Look up why he’s never had sex in decades. He had someone that he was deeply in love with who lied to him, and cheated on him with multiple men–this was NYC back in the 80s when AIDS was rampant and a death sentence. I don’t blame him for standing back and saying “you know what? I’m done.” That level of betrayal scars a person for life.

    • Kcaia says:

      Life hurts everyone, so do people. But building walls to block the pain is just creating more obstacles that need to be overcome. Miley will learn her own lessons in her own life. The beauty of intelligence is that we are all different and have our own paths and choices. You can let your struggles take you down, or they can make you stronger. In ten years Miley will be much wiser than she is now, and that doesn’t mean that she’s stupid now. I truly believe that those of us that question and test life and its boundaries learn more about ourselves in the process than those who just do what they’re “supposed to do” all along.

      • Sara says:

        @kcaia He’s risking AIDS by taking the other route. Although we all are, to an extent, his risk is certainly higher, due to lack of protection in the gay community (no babies, no worries). I think it is understandable to be cautious of an activity that can lead to death or a lower quality of life. Maybe it’s not building a wall, and it’s simply deciding that activity is not worth the risk.

  9. vava says:

    I love Tim Gunn.
    I doubt he’d ever be violent towards her, though. She’s too immature to understand what a fool she is. There’s really no point in talking to her because she’s on her own trajectory and if people object to her behaviors then they should just get out of the way. There’s no turning her around until she decides to do it for herself. She’s really a sad case of rebellion. I hope she takes herself down and out of the spotlight FAST. We just have to be patient.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I think he meant it in a “her parents need to talk to her” kind of way. Because if Miley was my kid, and she was famous–I’d want her to be famous for her singing voice, not just because she’s humping mushrooms. Which I think is where she’s at–that she’s doing all of this stuff, and people are kind of forgetting that she can actually sing, and has name recognition, so she doesn’t need to do all of this.

      But if she does want to do all of this–be TALENTED. That’s my issue with her.

  10. Atlanta says:

    Old man is offeneded by young womans image? Sorry but i am on Mileys side here.

    • Leila in Wunderland says:


      Now if he had taken a cool live and let live approach, that would have actually been surprising.

    • SummersReign says:

      He needs a ‘bitch slap’ for saying that….and I cant even stand Miley!

    • Florc says:

      He is a fashion icon/guru. He was asked about Miley’s fashion choices. He’s earned his place in the fashion world and if Miley had 2 brain cells to rub together these days she’d listen.
      Tim didn’t just randomly offer up his opinion.

      And I can’t back the idea that Miley’s fashion is really all hers and an outlet to express herself. She’s rebelling for attention and shock value. She’s surrounded by people that will praise her endlessly or be cut off financially. Miley is a tool at this point. She does need to be shocked into listening before something bad happens.

      • June says:

        I agree Florc!

      • LAK says:

        Those of us who grew up in the 80s are getting major flashbacks from her fashion.

        No originality whatsoever in her clothes or styling choices.

        It’s funny when people or even Miley try to pretend that it is.

      • Christin says:

        I agree with LAK. I’m seeing the 1980s all over again. Nothing original to see here. This has all been done before.

    • Schnee says:

      Absolutely. What a common, policing sexist he seems to be.
      She is a grown woman, a popstar and knows exactly how to go about this business. Such patronizing comments from an old, semi-relevant man she certainly does not need.

  11. msm says:

    As much as we would all like to bitch slap Miley at this point, I don’t think she’s going to “listen” because she doesn’t care what people say or think of her, as long as her actions are getting her more attention (i.e. money). Sex sells. Being naked sells. Being crazy sells. People will pile into her shows to see her because they can say they saw her. The best way to “bitch slap” Miley is to stop clicking on links about her, stop commenting about her, stop buying her music, etc. As long as WE (and I add myself to that number) keep paying her attention, she will keep famewhoring. #truth

  12. reba says:

    Miley decided to go for the shock value side of the entertainment business. It is hard work (must be exhausting to keep sticking your tongue out like that!) and she works hard at it. I was all down on Miley wrecking balling her way into smashing our nice social values, until I looked at an old video of hers where she sings something about how it is not about getting to the top of the mountain, ‘it’s all about the climb’. I’m starting to think she’s really just doing a job called entertainment. P.S. I never watched wrecking ball or the VMA or anything, I can’t stand that stuff in my head.

  13. Nola says:

    What Miley needs is for all of us to stop commenting on her transparent play for attention.

  14. Sixer says:

    I don’t think Miley needs a bitch-slap. I think she needs to be ignored. It’s the only lesson she will heed.

    Let’s all go talk about Malala instead!

  15. mj says:

    Um, am I alone in thinking that bitch slapping a 20 yo woman into knowing how to dress is vile? Hate on Miley all you want. I’m not a fan, and I’m annoyed by her antics. But that statement really rubbed me the wrong way.

    • Leila in Wunderland says:

      Wow. You just took it to a level that didn’t even occur to me. I guess the idea that violence or punishment of any kind is the answer to a woman dressing in ways that certain people have a problem with is a bit problematic, but he was just joking and didn’t really mean it that way, so I think we should give him a pass. It’s always interesting to consider other peoples’ perspectives about things though.

    • Lady D says:

      No mj. I thought the same thing you did. Violence is the only way to get through to her?

  16. SantaSays says:

    Miley has found the big red button and she’s just going to keep pressing it and pressing it until it stops working. I don’t think she even identifies with the persona she has adopted, nor is she mature enough to even understand it: what matters is that she is getting attention, lots of it. I have never seen such a needy child!

  17. Dawn says:

    Well yes Tim and many people agree with you. Unfortunately this country becomes more uncivilized by the day. But let’s be clear it is NOT just a Miley issue, we celebrate many people who would at one time and not so long ago be looked down upon because of their actions. Again I applaud you for saying what so many have said under their breath. I heard a story yesterday that the state of Kentucky was considering banning the age long practice of shaking hands with the opposing team in sports because the kids kept starting fights. Fortunately cooler heads prevailed and this will not happen instead any kid who starts a fight will be suspend from the sport as he or she should be. We are indeed living in crazy times!

  18. Leah says:

    I dont agree with all these people attacking Miley. Its bordering on bullying now. She is an easy target at this stage. But hey its not like she drove drunk or is violent. like Lohan or Chris Brown. Her offence is twerking at the VMA and getting undressed in videos. Seriously???

    • Mary says:

      Bullying? Really? Good God, can we at some point stop throwing around the bullying word like it pertains to everyone? Bullying is not what is happening here. Miley has said on multiple occasions that she loves the attention that she has been getting since the VMA’s. She knows that a lot of it is bad attention, she just loves it anyway.

      • Leah says:

        I think that when several big names that carry weight attack a woman several decades younger ( how old is Tim Gunn?) it borders on bullying. Its almost like she its fair game to attack her now because she has been ridiculed so much. I dont think she is doing anything that Madonna didnt do in her day so personally i dont get why people are finding her so offensive. Her offences are not criminal.

  19. SuSu says:

    “give her a great big bitch slap”
    Yes she dresses like shit, but it´s her choice. Every woman can dress the way she wants! Criticize her dress sense if you want, but don´t say a woman needs a bitch slap!!! Slapping a woman IS NO JOKE! I´m disappointed with the comments here. Hate her and her silly tongue, but don´t praise violence!

  20. lyka says:

    I’m bewildered by some of these comments because I honestly don’t think there’s anything remotely praise-worthy about Gunn’s statement here. Remember, this is the man who once said that he thought Hillary Clinton must be “confused about her gender” because she wore pantsuits. TG might be a generally sensitive and gracious person, but this is certainly not the first time he’s exposed his warped notions of proper femininity. And while you may be able to excuse some of this as the just the educated judgments of a “fashion guy”, advocating this kind of violence (joke or not) is disturbing for me.

    And ya’ll – I’m as bored of Miley as you are, but the girl CAN sing. Who the heck knows what nonsense is happening on Bangerz, but she’s got a hell of a voice when she sticks to country.

  21. Emily C. says:

    I see, so if a young woman wears clothing deemed inappropriate and acts in a sexual manner, it is okay for a man to use violence against her.

    WTF America. This is what we have come to.

    And what about Robin Thicke? You know, the man who wrote the pro-rape ballad, was on that stage with Miley, and who now is saying it’s all on her? A man encouraging rape: okey dokey! A young woman not wearing very many clothes: deserves to be hit!

    The Taliban must be thrilled.

    • Sara says:

      Right, because Tim meant he’d literally hit her. Grow up. It’s interesting you’d buy into the notion that the song is pro-rape. Robin himself said its ridiculous to think that and he wrote the song about his wife. Feel free to keep your jimmies rustled, though.

  22. Dommy Dearest says:

    I’ll gladly slap her. But not for her fashion sense.

    Tim Gunn gets it right again. And he looks dashing in that navy tux. That’s what style is.

    It’s because mc said
    Most stylists suck

    This is why I agree: its become a cult of the
    Sylist dressing some celeb or wealthy athlete
    Like, the signature look is all about the
    Celebrity stylist, not the celebrity. As a
    Result, its become s and boringo stale in fashion, so
    1950′a with asexual rules by men like TIM gunn

    He’s Just pissed because she’s outting the lame trend of hiring someone else to express.

    The guy who’s hosting a Nespresso store opening shouldn’t be giving career or personal advice to anybody.

    I think Tim Gunn said “bitch slap” to shock people and to get Miley’s attention. I am personally worried about her. I see her going down the path of Lindsey Lohan and Brittany Spears. Both are wildly talented people who have lost all control. Liberation without personal responsibility is a path to destruction. How far does she have to hang off the cliff before someone comes to pull her away from the edge? Sex or no sex is not the question. Is she going to look back on these days, some twenty years down the road, and say “Why didn’t anyone stop me?” I pray for her to learn self-control and self-respect. Sexual liberation is not all it’s cracked up to be. I’m a tail-end flower child so I saw the fallout from the last experiment in social engineering…

    What’s shocking to me is that this is receiving so much attention. It’s an old tale: child star grows up and proclaims adulthood to the world through blatant, conspicuous near nudity and asinine commentary. Yawn. Nothing edgy, shocking, or surprising here. Next.

    So says the 70 year old man who’s not into women, about the 20yr old Miley.

    Let me just say here that I watched some of the VMA’s (I hope I’m right as to the program name) when Miley did that awful twerk and tongue thing. My daughter, who is 18, saw part of it and said it was awful, not so much the t&t but her voice. She sounded terrible and she was put off by the whole tongue out and booty shaking mess. My daughter loves music and popular culture, but Miley she cannot abide, and thinks that she is nothing more than a famewhore trying to stay relevant. From the mouth of babes, I agree with her.

  31. Sheilla says:

    20 years from now Miley will write a book about how she was exploited when she was 20, how she wishes someone would’ve intervened, how she’d NEVER want her own daughter to so objectify herself. And, Miley, you don’t know it now, but 20 years can pass in the blink of an eye.
