Hannah Montana the movie

Posts Tagged ‘Cyrus

The poster girl for the current Disneypop phenomenon is Hannah Montana herself, Miley Cyrus.
In case it’s unclear, she’s the one who hasn’t been disgraced with nudie photos
(although she did do an implied-topless Annie Leibovitz shoot for Vanity Fair).
Indeed, so sexless is the squeaky-clean 17-year-old that the very idea feels profoundly wrong.
And while the twiggy teenager may not look as if she’s a member of an imperialist shock-troop, in terms of exporting the conservative values
of the Christian right she’s more effective than the marines.
You think I’m exaggerating?
Time Magazine doesn’t. It put Miley Cyrus in its Top 100 Most Influential People list.

It’s an unremarkably generic, high-spec/low-com-denom arena show, filled with material,
written “by” (read: “with”, in the change-a-word, take-a-third sense) Cyrus herself, which consists either of melismatic ballads
or putrid pop-rock like “7 Things”, with a recurring Nashville twang to remind us of her parental heritage.

The show’s most expensive stunt involves Cyrus riding a flying Harley Davidson over the heads of the Stepford Tweenies below
and singing Joan Jett’s version of “I Love Rock and Roll”, while pseudo-edgy tattoo art flashes stroboscopically on the big screen.
