Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are great together. Despite all of their scandals and inappropriate behavior, they are two teenagers who are only looking for their place under the sun. Many people believe that they have been a bad influence due to everything they are doing, but there is more to their story than meets the eye.
During the past few months, most people criticized Justin’s and Miley’s behavior, their performances and mostly their private life. But with all the criticism, people actually do not have time to see what is really important. Biber’s and Cyrus’s talent is being overlooked; not only overlooked but actually completely diminished. Many people do not realize that Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus actually do have talent. And it does not matter whether anyone likes their music or not. Justin is a great vocalist who plays several instruments, writes lyrics and music which resonates with a large group of audience. Miley has a big talent as a vocalist. Remember her cover of Lana Del Ray’s song Summertime sadness? Despite the fact that she does sing great, she is not celebrated or appreciated as a legitimate artist. Why?
Miley Cyrus puts on a shocking spectacle for the audience, just as Justin Bieber does. And this is why all the possibility of legitimate music talent is erased from people’s minds. Miley is well-known for her half-naked performances and Justin is a well-known ladies boy who cannot settle down with his Selena Gomez. But lately, news is bringing the same old stories about them. Who cheated on whom and who did what. Their talent is no longer a matter of question. It seems like the public is only interested in the scandals they make and not about the music they create. If you combine Justin Bieber’s and Miley Cyrus’s talent together, the result is a great mixture of a wide range of talents.
Justin’s and Miley’s behavior can be a result of many things. There is pressure of fame during their young age and the fear of ridicule and judgment. Being a celebrity when you are so young can be a lot of unwanted pressure. Their childhood practically did not exist. Bieber and Cyrus were different than many other children they grew up with. While others were playing outside, Justin and Miley worked hard in order to continue the success they had. And having no childhood can leave severe consequences which result later in adulthood. But not everything is their fault. The way that society treats celebrities is also to blame. If it used to be about music, today it is not anymore. Scandals, sex and nude pictures are what sells nowadays. People go to concerts to see the show, not to listen to music. And this is what Justin and Miley are giving them: a show to remember.
Despite the fact that they are great vocalists and talented artists, their current behavior and actions can leave some severe consequences. Especially drugs and alcohol. Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus have been friends for a long time and they are really great together. Despite all criticism, they continue being themselves and doing what they like. The only question is, what good will come out of that.
