Miley Cyrus Has the Loneliest Instagram

Miley's Instagram
All dogs and face.

Have you seen Miley Cyrus' Instagram? Wait. What am I asking? Of course you have! She has well over 10 million followers on that shit. That's more people than live in New York City. That's like ten and half Rhode Islands. That's insane.

And Miley's no photographer. There's nothing particularly beautiful or artistic about any of her shots. There's an overwhelming number of selfies and photos of her pack of canines. And for some reason, it feels lonely to me. So lonely. Like "hold me" lonely. Let's explore this.

Miley wears her heart on her Twitter. Remember when she tweeted at her famous dad, Billy Ray, "tell the truth or I'll tell it for you" when her mom filed for divorce? She's not hiding much, this one. All her feelings are laid out on the web.

Miley's had a strange life so far. Instead of living in the relative safety of a college dorm where you talk to your roommates about everything, she lives on the internet. Which is pretty sad in and of itself. When you're about 18 to 21, you stay up late with friends recounting in an eight-hour conversation every word the guy you like said, every weird feeling you had while peeing that morning, all the twisted thoughts that came into your head after smoking weed out of an apple. It's a very dramatic age. And Miley Cyrus, at 21, really has exemplified this time of life over the past few years in a very public way.

Her VMA performance was shameful. It's what happens when a 20-year-old with no real education gains too much power. It was clear that Cyrus was calling the shots and that she was woefully ignorant of anything being taught in women's studies or black history classes. My general feeling on it was, "How embarrassing for her." She brought pop culture back to the days of the Hottentot Venus.

You cannot talk about Miley now without bringing this up. Does it contribute in any way to her lonely Instagram? Maybe. Maybe the isolation and buffer fame provides has not only kept her from understanding gender and race issues but also from exploring anything much outside her own head. And she's not a dummy.

That leads us to her recent video exploring the effects of LSD with the Flaming Lips -- her fave band, which is not a bad choice -- and Moby. Wayne Coyne titled this fantastic work of art "Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain." Miley posted the shit out of its behind the scenes on Instagram, but only a few of those pictures included other people.

@sharyn350z is right on. I used to really like Miley (still do but it's hard sometimes...) but her behavior and change in appearance is totally weird. At first I thought she was burnt out and deliberately trying to sabotage her career. Then I thought maybe she had a nervous breakdown or something. Then I figured she got in with with the wrong crowd and got into drugs. Or maybe it's all an act? After all there's a lot of money behind her tour and CD and her Mom clearly is with her all the time. Anyway, I'm not sure how long it will last. I think she was doing fine before and I know not everyone will agree with me but I thought she was absolutely drop dead gorgeous in some of her photoshoots and videos. I have the limited edition of Can't be Tamed with her concert at the O2 and was watching it the other day. Wow. What a difference! I don't understand why she thought she had to do what she did. She ruined what was very beautiful and special. She could have had a very long and successful career. Now who knows? Yeah, I know Wrecking Ball was #1 and yes I like the song but all of the weirdness surrounding Miley now kind of detracts from it. Why did she think everyone thought of her as "Hannah Montana" anyway? Only a very young child or a total moron would think that. That always sounded more like an excuse to me anyway. No one I know thinks that. And EVERY one of my friends wishes Miley hadn't changed the way she did. In fact one of them got to meet her during the Wonder World tour and told us how sweet she was. And yet she keeps saying this latest (and weirdest) version is the "real" her. I hope for her sake it isn't and she will get her s*** together before it's too late and we read about her like Amy Winehouse or countless other celebs. Sometimes I think "Maybe the 'haters' have been right all along?" Maybe Miley doesn't care about her fans? Maybe she doesn't care about herself. Nothing funny about it. Just very sad.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

Maybe because she's an idiot who alienated everyone she possibly could and dissed all the fans who made her rich and tells people to do drugs? Karma.
