Hey guys! I hope you all are back to read my second blog after my first (probably not the best) one. So for this assignment for class, we have to choose an organization or a person that faced a crisis of some sort and to state how they responded. Oddly enough, the first person to pop in my head was Miley Cyrus! (whom might I add, was/IS my child hood idle, no shame by that).

In 2013, she released a few songs such as “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” that definitely got people talking. Check out the videos above if you haven’t already seen them. But why did she cut her hair and make these weird, crazy videos? BECAUSE THE PEOPLE LOVED IT. She used social media to gain followers because everyone wanted to see what she was doing. Whether it was bad reviews, or good ones, people were talking about her and that was what Cyrus was going for. She is literally a genius (okay, maybe not) but she was getting screen time and using it to her advantage. Her videos were off the charts in 2013 because of her crisis.
Following Cyrus’ crisis, at the VMA Awards in 2013, she co performed with Robin Thicke and got people talking off the charts. The infamous “Twerk around the world”. Like some of the names people come up with literally have me dead. Cyrus once again did some out of whack things on stage such as twerking with her foam finger but what happened following this? CYRUS GAINED MORE FAME THAN SHE ALREADY HAD AT THE AGE OF 21 YEARS OLD. Whether it was hate or love, she had people kissing her feet.
So all in all, Cyrus responded with loving the fame she had gained, of course. All the hate and love she got on social media, she embraced. Did she handle this and respond to this effectively? Okay, let’s be real for a moment. If you were famous and cut your hair and released these sick videos that everyone loved and shared and bought on iTunes you wouldn’t be pleased? OF COURSE, YOU WOULD. DON’T EVEN LIE! She had fans wrapped around her finger and I do not blame her. And following this crisis in 2013, Miley Cyrus will still make more money than I do my entire life in one day 🙂
Thanks for sticking around to listen to be blab about how awesome Miley Cyrus is and how she handled her crisis in 2013 in a positive manner. I hope everyone stops in next week to read what’s next! Have a good week!
