Transcript of Miley Cyrus: Arts & Ethics

Presenting Miley Cyrus
Hannah Montana
Hannah Montana: the Idol
Hannah Montana gone wild?
Miley Cyrus first became famous in the show "Hannah Montana" which aired in 2006. It was "the best of both worlds" for Miley Cyrus fans. Cyrus acquired both Hannah Montana fans and Miley Cryus fans. She became the idol for many young girls. "Montana" sang many songs about young love and self-respect.
Miley Cyrus, who plays Hannah Montana, has come out with a somewhat racy video chanting "can't be tamed". Perhaps, her parents took her phone away.

Value of the Arts
- What are the Arts?
- What is good art?
- What is the relation between artist and art work?
- What is aesthetic value?

- Parents feel tricked
- False sense of familiarity influences teens

What do the adults say?
“The goodness of a work of art with aesthetic value does not lie in the work of art’s use, but rather in its impact on the consumer”

" Art is merely the expression of the emotions of the artist" (Kemp).
What did you do, Liam?
Miley Cyrus has shocked the public with her latest video, "We Can't Stop". Is she doing lines in the bathroom or is she just joki
Art and Ethics

- Heavy emphasis on alcohol and drugs
- Racy outfits
- Role of a celebrity in society
- Raised under different circumstances
Ethics: Miley Cyrus
I think weed is the best drug on earth. One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon. Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And molly, too. Those are happy drugs – social drugs. They make you want to be with friends. You're out in the open. You're not in a bathroom. I really don't like coke. It's so gross and so dark.

- Two different perspectives
- Scientists speculate the influence celebrities can have on teens
- Intensity of "idolizing"
What do teenagers say?
- Confused
- Only recognize today's Miley Cyrus
What about young kids?
"I think the video is much more, if people get past the point that I'm naked and you actually look at me you can tell that I actually look more broken than even the song sounds. The song is a pop ballad. It's one of these songs that everyone is going to relate to, everyone has felt that feeling at one point."
- What are ethics?
- What are behind people's ethical values?
- Do ethics influence our perception?
- Positive effect on society as a role model
- Negative effect on society as a role model
- Smart career move
-Disney brand
What does the market think?
