And to think she used to be my idol...Monday, June 11, 2012 By Lizeth Tizoc-Perez
I remember the Fridays when I'd get home from school and be totally hyped waiting for the clock to strike 5:00, marking the start of the new episode of Hannah Montana. (Yeah, Hannah Montana, as stupid as that may sound now that I'm in high school) No, I wasn't attracted to the show because I was the most die-hard fan of hers, but because her music represented the happiness that still lived in the child in me. Her songs would make me believe that we could all be President, how “life's what you make it”, and we could all be “super-girls”. She made me believe that there was so much waiting out there if you only believed in yourself. And then she threw all of that away. She became another child ruined by the entertainment industry, and turned into a younger version of Britney Spears. Actually, I remember listening to an interview once where she mentioned her role model, in fact, was Britney Spears, and there I was, thinking: “Oh. Well, that can't be good.” Guess I was right, cause now it's a whole lot different. Is she even singing now? Well, I prefer that she didn't, 'cause not only did she shatter every little girl's dream of someday becoming whatever you set your heart to—which, to her must have been looking like a prostitute -- but she also set the example for not having any self-respect. At ANY age.
