Are You Kidding Me?

In response to numerous people (mostly parents) about Miley Cyrus' performance on the VMA's last night:

1. If you allow YOUR young children to watch MTV and then expect it to be Hannah Montana, you're an idiot. YOU are responsible for what you and your children watch, not the media. You were not watching Sprout at 6am on a Saturday. Take some personal responsibility and use your common sense.

2. Miley Cyrus hasn't been the sparkling little Disney princess Hannah Montana in years. People change, they make mistakes,they get photographed smoking pot or awkwardly attempt to twerk with Robin Thicke. It's called growing up. Give her a break.

3. I knew a lot of you when you were her age, which is 20 by the way, and trust me, you weren't all bathed in white robes and rosary beads while respecting authority and smiling nicely.

Now, did I enjoy her performance? No. I found it awkward, without merit or rhythm and don't ever need to see a foam finger again. However it is not the media's responsibility to censor things to YOUR standards for YOUR family.

"But you don't have kids, Balls, you don't understand". No, I don't have kids, but I do have at least half a brain. I guaran-damn-tee you that when I do have kids and they are under the age of...well, late puberty... they wouldn't be watching the VMA's or any other trash found on MTV under my roof.

Don't like it? Think it may not be suitable for your 5 year old? Don't freaking watch it and go find something that actually matters to complain about.

Oh, and I forgot about one more.

4. If you were watching the VMAs instead of Breaking Bad, you're automatically someone I can't associate with. That is all.

Happy Monday,


  1. Well played, well played. Couldn't have put it better myself. "No. I found it awkward, without merit or rhythm and don't ever need to see a foam finger again." :)

  2. In response to #4. What if someone were drinking beer and eating quesadillas instead? Still ok? :)

  3. Thanks Ryan! And Heather, I suppose I can give you a pass this time.
