US Airways Center
2/27/14

It was a pot -- and pop -- lover's paradise at 21-year-old Miley Cyrus' packed-house Bangerz tour stop Thursday night in Phoenix.

Concertgoers walked in to see multi-colored balloons hanging from the ceiling and covering giant fixtures throughout US Airways Center. The smell of marijuana permeated the air around the mostly high school-aged crowd (gasp). Trippy Dalí-esque animation and Ren & Stimpy-like cartoons played in the background during the show. And, of course, Cyrus donned a sparkly green ganja leaf onesie, complete with pot bling and a marijuana necklace she proceeded to wring between her legs.

Judging from one of Cyrus' fans, maybe a high school freshman, wearing a sparkly pot bra in a section near the front, it was just what the audience wanted. Good thing not many parents showed up to the concert, which has come under fire for its raunchiness since its debut.

The show started off as a stoner's dream, with brightly colored plushies dancing around the simple stage with a giant screen backdrop. As Cyrus' face appeared on the screen, a door appeared, and a giant tongue slide brought Cyrus to the stage for her screaming fans as balloons fell into the crowd.

That would surprise me enormously but one can only hope. And she is very vocal about her pot smoking for a "sober" person. To me she is just a copycat, out for shock value. But we are all entitled to our own opinion. In my eyes, it's not becoming, it's tiresome.

Bonnie, she's not doing anything different from what Madonna did, and I'm sure her father sits down with her and talks to her plenty. I've listened to her in interviews, and for her age she has a good head on her shoulders. She's just not a stuck up or a prude or worried what other people think. I'm sure when she is a parent she will be mortified what she was doing at her age now. But she's in entertainment, and this is what the kids what to see...they want to see Hannah Montana all grown up. The careers of all the other child stars who tried to remain children took a bomb, so she is just showing them that she can grow up along with them and still have a good head on her shoulders. And to be honest, she isn't doing more drugs then Brittney or Lindsey or Paris was doing, or what Justin Beiber is doing now...if fact, she is actually a whole lot tamer and doing much less, and she still gets jobs for television and shows up sober and ready for work. I would not be surprised in five years she ends up doing community service work in an about-change. I think she is holding her own a lot better then most people give her credit for.

Caroline Maul I think you are giving her too much credit. I think she behaves like a child desperate and addicted to attention. However I respect her right to freedom of speech and expression, although I believe she needs someone to sit her down and give her a talking to.

The ladies are jealous of her. Jealous of her youth and her joy. I absolutely love her and her ignorance about everything that is going on around her but to bring joy to her fans. I still remember those days when I was that young, and if I was 19 again...even 21, I would have loved Miley. I love her because she stays real and genuine to her audience, and that is exactly why they are moved by her. And of course, shock value does sell, so she will probably always know how to reinvent herself. Like Madonna, to hate her is to love her. Because she is not bothered by what other people worry about, or being consumed with things that end up making us hateful and judgementful, she instead lives up to being real, and wants to leave lasting memories, and living life to the fullest. And by her knowing this, she is wise beyond her years. And this considering that she can be wild and still keep out of trouble...she is no Justin Beiber, people. So please, get over yourselves. ;)

I don't hate the poor kid. I hate that society requires her to flaunt herself in such a sexual manner to sell music. I hate that anyone including men would need to do so.

So much hatred. Where were all of you when David Lee Roth was doing the exact same shit 30 years ago.

Controversy sells, always has. It's a genius move on both her part and the PR managers part. And remember, jealousy comes in many many forms and some people are incredibly consumed with it

True, prostitution has many, many forms, and some people are incredibly impressed by it.
