I definitely don't love the guy by far, and dont agree with a lot of things he says or does, but some of his comments about certain celebrities just bring out the lulz for me. Cant help it. Everyone has a different sense of humor I guess.

I'm guilty of laughing at mean celebrity snark on other sites, so I'm not going to sit here and shake my Finger Of Shame at anyone for going to him for gossip.

I just want him to fade away into obscurity, because I bet to him, that would be a fate worse than jail.

the guy has made a very good living off of cheap shots and nastiness

and yes, there have been gossip columnists forever

but,if he did publish this up - skirt shot, he should take his lumps

his defense? that she was wearing underwear, it just looks like there aren't any - does not hold up

if a person publishes a picture of a 20 year old
that is 90 pounds and is 4 feet 11 inches tall, flat chested female, that looks like a 12 year old.

they still get charged with kiddie porn.

Other females have done it, why be surprised if she followed the trend? I haven't seen the photo, I don't know if she did, nor, quite frankly, do I really care, but there's lots of women that walk around like that. Some may find it stupid, but it's not out of the realm of possibility.

As for the issue at hand, I really don't pay any attention to Perez Hilton, I try to avoid all the celebrity gossip stuff because most of the people they talk about are people I really don't care about one way or another to begin with and because the shows and gossip sites are usually mind-numbingly dumb ("The Insider" wins the prize here as the most obnoxious one-good god, are they honestly for real with that show?). But I agree, so let's say Miley did dress that way and he knew she dressed that way. It's still no excuse to put her picture up online. It shouldn't have happened with Britney, either, and she was of legal age when she did it. The world doesn't really need to see that part of their bodies plastered all over the internet. The celebrities and the celebrities alone should decide what they want online. I don't know if I'd personally consider it "child porn", because it's not like he makes a "life" out of showing nude children all over the place or something like that, if that makes sense, but if that is indeed the way the laws work, then yes, he may want to be very careful about what he puts up down the line. Children in general need to stay out of the paparazzi's lens, though, I fully agree with that. They don't need cameras in their faces every day, and you don't know what kinds of psycho creeps out there could be noticing these kids and planning to do god knows what to them or their families. Demi Moore has a valid point there, Perez, sorry.

I'd also like to say that I'm really tired of the "slut/ho/whore" crap that the public tends to throw around in regards to female celebrities. Yes, because how you dress automatically determines your sex life, right? Way to be catty, people, especially about somebody you don't even know personally. Never hear guys get called any slurs for appearing naked or nearly naked in photo shoots or movies, never hear about them being called names for sleeping around with tons of girls. Nope. Just always with the women.

Yeah, this really bothers me on so many levels. Miley's automatically some kind of evil because she's no longer acting like a Disney cartoon. Really, people, Miley wasn't going to stay little and completely without sexual thoughts forever. People simply don't want to let child stars become adults. I am SO tired of people trying to beat the crap out of Miley because she went and grew up without permission. Really? Get over yourselves, people, and leave that girl alone. She's not required to behave in a certain fashion for you. She's young and experimenting with what she wants to do as an artist on her own. Be kind enough to let her.

As far as Perez? What a skank. He's an idiot. He's also funny sometimes, but really, we the public thrive on exactly what he does. We say what he says, so there's no need to get upset with him for putting out there exactly what most of us say in our living rooms anyway. I think he should just draw the line at celeb's children. Or underage celebs. Wait until they're adults and in the public eye, otherwise it's not funny.

Thank you. Name me a 17 year old that DOESN'T have sexual thoughts or try to act "grown-up" and explore their sexuality and I'll be incredibly curious about how their hormones are working.

And then of course the "she's a bad role model" argument. Last time I checked, she wasn't the parent of your kids, you were, so if what she's doing really bothers you THAT much then, um, turn off the TV? She's not responsible for how your kids turn out, quit expecting her or any other teen star to be the role model. That's what parents are for.

Most, however, don't do it on the world stage. And most haven't been put on that stage by a fan base that is almost exclusively tween girls.

The question "am I my brother's keeper" is a rhetorical question, and the answer is "yes".

It sounds like nothing is going to happen to Perez - I think I read the picture was actually a fake? Miley's camp isn't pressing charges at this time, and all that's happened is:

a) The View pulled an ad from Perez' site;

b) Miley said something like "it's just an idiot being an idiot" (Miley said something I agree with? Is that a sign of the apocalypse?);

and

c) Perez keeps opening his irritating mouth and whining about this that or the other thing. I guess he put out a statement, but the last thing I'm going to do is go to his site to find it to post. I'm not giving him the page-views he so desperately pines for.

True, most don't go through that in the public eye. And yes, she got popular because of the kind of fan base she had. But I think most of them would be mature enough and smart enough to know that just because she starts getting a bit more "grown-up" with her behavior, it doesn't mean they have to do it, either. Matter of fact, I remember back when I was a teenager and Britney started moving in that very same direction, some of the criticism came from other teenagers, people around the age Britney was when she did, for instance, the Rolling Stone cover.

If we were able to survive the fretting over Britney or Christina getting more adult as they went on, we can survive Miley, too.

I would disagree, I wouldn't say it's an automatic definite "yes". There are indeed times we should look out for one another and be aware of our actions, absolutely. But Miley dressing a bit provocatively isn't really one of those times, I don't think. She is not the babysitter for people's children. That is not her job. If I ever have kids, I will be responsible for them, not some musician or actor or athlete. They can be a fan of whatever celebrity they want to be a fan of, but when it comes to following the rules, I will be who they listen to. That's how my parents did it with me and my sister.

I don't disagree -- this is why my wife and I allow our 6 year old to listen to Hannah Montana, but not watch the show. We don't want to have to explain why what she's doing is inappropriate, or why we used to allow her to watch the show but now don't. I am all for the idea that parents are the ultimate barometer of what their children watch/don't watch/see/don't see -- however, as a parent, it would be nice not to have to say no to watching a TV show because someday that innocent 13 year old is going to be a 17 year old who believes that the best way to announce her maturity as an artist is to take her clothes off.

Additionally, the whole notion that these are innocent kids exploring their sexuality doesn't hold much traction with me. This has everything to do with exploiting sexuality for the sake of selling product. Of course Team Miley wants our attention. Of course her did-she-didn't-she-lesbian-kiss was designed to titillate and provoke. Of course she wants to maintain her presence in the public eye. Lest we forget, she's got an album to promote, for pity's sake. I am, however, growing increasingly weary of using hypersexuality as the means to get that attention, and then complaining when people raise an eyebrow.

Not to mention that it's just plain gross. I don't need to know this kind of crap.

I actually do agree with you on that aspect of it all. If the music's good on its own merits, you shouldn't have to resort to such gimmicks to get attention. And definitely, most of these girls are doing it because it gets them attention and sells their product. To which I'd reply, then we need to just start ignoring them altogether. If the public stops either enjoying or making a fuss over these desperate attempts at attention, then people won't feel such a need to do it anymore. But so long as it's selling and causing controversy, expect stuff like this to continue.

As for your child, certainly you are entitled to raise her however you wish and I understand your concerns. At the same time, however, why is listening not as bad as seeing? She's likely to eventually find out in some way what's up with her favorite singer nowadays (being at a friend's house who may be watching the show or watching something about her on TV, or hearing something about it on the news, or whatever), and eventually the questions will come up. But if she's 6 years old, I doubt she'd really care all that much or understand anyway even if she knew.

Your daughter's age does make me think of something somewhat related to all this, though, and this is just a general rant/commentary at large. I love how this country gets so up in arms when someone like Miley starts dressing sexy, I hear demand that she stop or people try and censor her, they talk about how she's too young to do any of that stuff or whatever. Meanwhile, no massive outcry over shows like "Toddlers and Tiaras" or "Little Miss Perfect". There are people out there who find those shows offensive and disturbing, yes (myself included), but I don't hear a big demand for those shows to be banned or public criticisms of the parents or whatever on a daily basis. A lot of people go watch that stuff and think it's "cute". How is that any better or more acceptable to people? At least Miley will be 18 soon. The kids in those shows have barely gotten through elementary school, if they've even started at all.

I don't watch those programs, for the reasons you suggest -- have only seen one once in passing, and it was kind of like watching a car wreck. Perhaps there isn't an outcry because the context of those shows seems to leave no doubt in the mind of the audience that the parents of those kids are sad and scary. At least, that was the effect it had on me.

That's possible. It certainly had the same effect on me (LOL, awwww, I'm sorry, DrTeeth, for that . I only know about them from the clips I see on "The Soup", I've never actively sat down and watched an episode by my own choosing). I seriously think some of those parents (and the pageant organizers) are walking a very fine line of legal vs. illegal activity. It's creepy as hell.

There are people who genuinely see no problem with this, though, for reasons I can't even begin to fathom.
