Miley Cyrus, in such a rush to be an adult, showed real signs of teen immaturity in her well meaning, but misplaced defense of Demi Moore. It does the Moore no good to be in denial about her drug problems.
Cyrus, 19, and Moore, 49, starred together in the upcoming movie “LOL: Laughing Out Loud.” Miley plays a rebellious teen to Demi’s 40-something divorced mother trying to keep things together.
In real life, Moore has been spiraling out of control for some time, and the scandalous end to her marriage to Ashton Kutcher definitely didn’t help. But it’s clear from recent events, that she has a major substance abuse and eating disorder problem.
Plus Moore is also narcissistic, which suggests a personality disorder as well. She’s obsessed with youth to the point of crashing her 23-year-old daughter’s circle of friends.
It took an overdose of drugs, putting her life at risk and resulting in hospitalization, to get Moore into rehab. Usually these things end far more badly… in death.
In a post on her Facebook page, Miley scolds “everyone,” likely meaning the tabloids for covering Moore’s meltdown. “She’s been through so much the past year. She doesn’t need the crap. How can you talk crap on someone you don’t know?” she writes.
The teenager then went on to deny Moore had a drug problem. “The media makes everyone in Hollywood seem ‘weak,’ ‘stupid,’ or ‘unbalanced,’” she added. “Just because she’s in Hollywood doesn’t mean she’s on drugs. NOT EVERYONE IS ON DRUGS!!!”
Miley may have a point; not everyone in Hollywood is on drugs. But it doesn’t apply to Moore, who is reported to have been huffing nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas, on the night she convulsed and was hospitalize.
She’s also reportedly hooked on prescription drugs and clearly has an eating disorder.
Put yourself in her shoes. How are you supposed to hold up while everyone in the world is so naïve and they believe everything the media says?” Miley adds.
But there’s only one person who is naïve here. Moore is finally getting the help she needs. No need for an apologist to deny problems that are clearly evident.
