Teen Sex, Exploitation, Drugs and Alcohol (Again) – Who is Using Who (Or What)?

Again we find ourselve discussing American culture and its rancid down side.

Fifteen year old pop star Miley Cyrus posed for celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The photographs, which some have called erotic child porn or nearly so, are to appear in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair.  If they are not child porn they are at least “partially clothed.”

Ms. Cyrus, alread the teen star of the Walt Disney Company’s billion-dollar “Hannah Montana” franchise, financial analysts say, will be worth $20 million by the time she is 18 years old.

Now Ms. Cyrus, daughter of singer Billy Ray Cyrus, claims she was used by Ms. Leibovitz and Vanity Fair.
.
She says she’s been wronged.

“I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be ‘artistic’ and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed,” Cyrus said Sunday in a statement through her publicist. “I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”

Well, gosh, even a 15 year old daughter of an American pop star knows how to get publicity, sell records and make more money. Sex in America sells and she knows it and so does her dad, the photographer and Vanity Fair.

Ms. Leibovitz is a renowned celebrity photographer whose edgy, sexy portraits have included subjects such as Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and a naked, pregnant Demi Moore.

She’s pretty well known. Sitting for her isn’t an accident waiting to happen. It is an entertainer hoping to become mega-rich.

Ms. Cyrus told PEOPLE Magazine, “My goal in my music and my acting is always to make people happy. For Vanity Fair, I was so honored and thrilled to work with Annie [Leibovitz].”
.
PEOPLE also reported that Ms. Cyrus appears to be topless, but was actually clothed during the shoot.

Keep your 15 year old daughter in view in your teaching and in your prayers. If she reports she is sitting for Vanity Fair photographers, she probably knows what she’s doing. Get her an IRA. And make sure she knows how to use a condom, unlike one other pop star: Jamie Lynn Spears.

Because we have seen so many people ruin their lives due to the agony of addiction, we sometimes shed light upon the “rich and famous.”  They are not immune from the ravages of drugs and alcohol.  Far from it.  In fact, because many entertainers and celebrities have a lot of “disposible” money (Amy Winehouse, who was arrested for cocaine possession and use, is reportedly worth $20 million) they can even mnore easily slip into addiction than some others.

Troubled soul singer Amy Winehouse, pictured on January 18, 2007 after some serious drug use, was admitted that week to a rehabilitation clinic to help her battle against drug addiction, her record company said.

Last week sexy model and movie actress Angie Everhart was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI).

Wikipedia speaks about her career this way:

Following a playful photo session with her mother and the submission of the results to a local modeling agency, Everhart was on a plane to Paris later that year. By the end of the following year, she had graced the covers of such fashion mainstays as ELLE and Glamour magazine (for which she was the first-ever red-haired cover girl). Though a riding accident in which she broke her back at the age of 19 nearly put an end to her aspirations, Everhart eventually recovered through physical therapy. Early in her career, Everhart was advised she would never be a top model because she was a redhead. However, she succeeded in her chosen career and posed for numerous publications. She appeared in several issues of the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, starting in 1995. After years of publicly insisting she would never pose nude, Everhart did just that for the February 2000 issue of Playboy. She was ranked #98 on the FHM 100 Sexiest Women of 2003.

Everhart made her film debut in 1993 with the Arnold Schwarzenegger action-comedy Last Action Hero. She has since appeared in such features as Tales From the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood (1996), Denial (1998), Trigger Happy (1996) and Gunblast Vodka (2000).

Other movies she has appeared in include Jade (1995), and Executive Target (1997), Since then, her feature film roles have been restricted to low budget erotic thrillers and softcore porn, such as Another 9 1/2 Weeks (1997) and Bare Witness (2001). She also appeared in the 2004 television series Celebrity Mole: Yucatan, in which she was the rogue agent sabotaging the group. She was one of the “Gingers” on the second season of The Real Gilligan’s Island  (the other was Erika Eleniak), but left the show when she accidentally cut her finger severely enough to sever tendons and require surgery. Angie was also a panelist on “To Tell The Truth” from 2000 to 2001.

Here is a woman that recovered from a broken back.  She has a lot to live for.  We pray that she gets her life straightened out — and fast.

Teen Media Idols: Drunk, Naked, Pregnant, Unashamed (We Have Pictures!)

January 3, 2008

This is meant to reflect deep concern for the shallowness of some of America’s culture and to indicate great concern for our youth.

We don’t have enage daughters so we try not to pass judgment on those youngsters and their offspring — or their parents. But sometimes, it is darned near impossible to resist commenting upon the morals and antics of our young people in our extremely permissive society.

Last night, Britney Spears was removed from her home by police and emergency workers following a three hour stand-off with the father of her children, Kevin Federline.
 
Reporters said she was handcuffed and in an ambulance when she arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A.  The incident concerned cutody for the couple’s sons, 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James.

Police and hospital officials said Miss Spears was under the influence of something which they did not disclose or discuss.

Five days before Christmas, the sixteen year old star of “Zoey 101” Miss Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney’s sister, announced that she was pregnant with the child of her boyfriend one Casey Aldridge.

Jamie who needs a condom and a lecture.

“I was in complete and total shock and so was he,” gushed the younger Miss Spears.

Well: here’s a newsflash. Every sixteen year old knows if you have unprotected sex there are consequences. 

The TV show the 16 year old stars in has become the most popular TV show for girls between the ages of and 8 and 12.

The mother of the Spears youngsters is Lynn, already a grandmother to Britney’s young sons.

Said Lynn: “I didn’t believe it because Jamie Lynn’s always been so conscientious. She’s never late for her curfew. I was in shock. I mean, this is my 16-year-old baby.”

Grow up grandma.

Jamie Lynne’s future on TV could be in danger, at least for a short time, and her mom’s book on parenting has been “shelved” by her publisher.

The parenting book was to have been published by a Christian book company.
****************
Lindsay Lohan is another “star” who has questionable appeal as a “role model.”  She is only a photogropher’s model and her looks won’t last especially if she continues to abuse drugs and alcohol.

The actress has been in and out of rehab after two arrests last year on drunken driving and cocaine charges.  Early in 2008 she posed nude in a Marilyn Monroe look-alike spread.
 

*******************

Today another teen heart throb entered the “News About My Sex Life” arena.  Nineteen year old actress Vanessa Hudgens discussed what she called the “traumatic” scandal concerning her nude photos appearing all over the internet.

Another news flash: in our digital age one had better not pose for porn lest it become for sale on the open and world-wide media circus. Only a few Chinese who are subject to tight state internet and other media restrictions will miss out on seeing Miss Hudgens “in the buff.”

Maybe all this titillation from teen girls is just to gain more media attention?  One wonders….

I remember when the worst thing a sixteen year old could do would earn him or her some time after school or a delayed shot at getting a drivers license.  Even at 19 my friends thought drinking three beers was a dangerous sport of epic proportions.

One wonders what the sons and daughters of drama queens Hudgens and Spears can possibly do to shock their parents in 16 years from now…..

I guess it is hard to find a virgin in today’s America above the age of, say, 10?  And parenting has become, well, as permissive, “tolerant,” accepting and understanding as it can get.  Bill Clinton must be delighted.

Is this what we really want?

***********************

Nearly four months after a nude photo of High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens hit the Internet, the 19-year-old actress has issued fans another mea culpa … well, sort of.

In the latest issue of Seventeen magazine, Hudgens said she’s not sorry for taking the risqué picture, which she repeatedly called “private,” but sorry instead for getting caught.

“It’s very unfortunate, because with the Internet these days, you don’t have a personal life,” she told the magazine for its February cover story. “Nothing is private: Everyone knows everything, and they can find out everything about you. You’re not as safe as you think you are, and you have to be aware of the people you’re around. It was something that was meant to be private, and even though it isn’t anymore, I’d still like to keep it as private as I can.”

Hudgens’ remarks to the magazine somewhat contradict an earlier statement issued days after the leak by her management, in which she apologized to her fans and said she felt embarrassment and “regret [at] having ever taken these photos.”

Although she recently admitted to Seventeen that the incident was “traumatic” and made her “extremely upset,” she said she’s “much better now” thanks in large part to her “family, friends, and fans, who supported me all along the way.”

Specifically, she singled out her mother to the magazine as particularly supportive.

“I was just open with her, and she was just so cute. She was like, ‘Well, everyone can be naked if they want to,’ ” Hudgens told Seventeen. “My parents are very supportive of me. And they know I’m a teenager, and yes, kids do stupid things sometimes.”

According to the article, Hudgens found out about the photo leak while out of the country. She claims the distance made her better equipped to deal with the resulting fallout.

“I found out from my manager,” she revealed. “We heard some story was going to break in the tabloids, and I was like, ‘What?!?’ A few days later, the picture came out while I was on vacation in Australia. Thank God I wasn’t home. It would have sucked if I was at home. So I got to be away from L.A. for about a millisecond. But when I came back, it got kind of crazy.

“I hope all my fans can learn from my mistake and make smart decisions,” she concluded.

Britney Spears’ 16 Year Old Sister is Pregnant

December 19, 2007

Comment from Peace and Freedom: If your kids are caught up in the “Pop Culture” of American and idolize people like Michael Vick, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and her 16 year old sister Jamie Lynn Spears, it might be a good time to return them to reality in a faith-based school or envirnoment.  We, frankly, believe people such as these provide a negative and even a corrosive impact on America….

Another Spears baby is reportedly on the way — and it’s not Britney‘s.Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old “Zoey 101” star and sister of Britney, tells OK! magazine that she’s pregnant and that the father is her longtime boyfriend, Casey Aldridge.

“It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected,” she says. “I was in complete and total shock and so was he.”

Spears is 12 weeks along and initially kept the news to herself when she learned of the pregnancy from an at-home test and subsequent doctor visit, she told the celebrity magazine, which hits stands in New York on Wednesday and the rest of the country by Friday.
