So I’m getting ready in the morning with MTV on and I hear annoying little Miley Cyrus with her catchy pop tunes in the background. When I actually pause for a moment to see the video, I realize that it’s a cross between the Lindsay Lohan “Rumors” video and Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.” Now I know that no one is original anymore because it’s just about impossible to accomplish, but if you’re going to copy someone, why LiLo?
Back when “Rumors” first came out I was still quite the LiLo fan. She was from a neighboring hometown and a felt a certain sense of simpatico with her. The video cracked me up because the dance moves were strongly reminiscent of the cheerleading moves at the High School she went to, but I figured that’s what I would have done had my pop star dreams ever come true.
Now Miley’s doing it over again and she doesn’t even attempt the choreography really. She just throws her arms around and wiggles her fingers together (I guess to symbolize “creepy little”) like all the girls listening to it at their winter formals will be doing. You would think that with all of her dance war videos and whatnot that she could come up with something better, but maybe “Manders” (of Milers and Manders YouTube fame of course) was the brains behind the operation.
