I don’t follow Miley Cyrus on Twitter, so I didn’t realize that she had shut down her account until I read the headline on PopEater.com.
On the surface, this could be a good thing. A lot of celebrities today share way too much on Twitter. It’s like they don’t realize everyone can read it. Case in point: Lindsay Lohan. I don’t follow her either, but the gossip sites love to report the personal crap she slings around as tweets. (Pick up your cellphone, Lindsay. The new package deals are quite affordable.)
But in Miley’s case, she closed her Twitter account because of her new boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth:
“FYI Liam doesn’t have a twitter and he wants ME to delete mine with good reason.”
Soon after, Miley disappeared.
If her boyfriend is the reason she left Twitter, that really bugs me. Because this is probably just the first in a long line of things Miley will change because of a boy.
What’s next, Miley? Liam doesn’t like the way you wear your hair? Change it. Doesn’t like the clothes you wear? Change ‘em. Doesn’t like your friends? Change ‘em.
Look, Twitter obviously is not that important. But if Miley liked having a Twitter account, who is Liam to tell her to shut it down? Many celebrities use their accounts to publicize their albums or movies, public appearances, even their charity work. Just because Liam doesn’t tweet doesn’t mean Miley has to give up her stake in this medium.
Girls — and yes, I am generalizing because it is often true — are so quick to compromise in relationships. It starts with some little thing, and by the time the relationship is over, they are barely recognizable.
So, Miley, just say no. Stand up for yourself. Remember, relationships can — and should be — a two-way street. Tweet if ya wanna. If Liam really likes you, he’ll like the you that tweets.
I’m just saying…
