Miley Cyrus likes teasing her fans. She always has. It used to be sexy, suggestive photos, but now she’s onto a new kick. She’s posted a photo of herself with a blade in her hand, holding it over her wrist. WTF?
Cutting is an adolescent problem that afflicts celebrities as well as everyday people. It comes from deep self esteem issues and depression. It’s hard to see how Miley has self-esteem problems, but there’s no question her life is a manic ride.

Cutting is an adolescent problem that afflicts celebrities as well as everyday people. It comes from deep self esteem issues and depression.
Few teens her age exude so much self-confidence. But Miley must really like the attention. The latest photos to appear over Instagram looks like she’s about to cut herself. But at least her wrist is turned down and not up.
The background looks like a bathroom and she’s holding her arm over a sink, wearing a sheer top with no bra.
Miley, who just got engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth, was also photographed recently with some parallel scars on her arm.
Former Disney star Demi Lovato has also confessed to cutting herself, which she attributes to a bi-polar disorder.
“I had no idea that I was even bipolar until I went into treatment,” she told ABC’s “20/20” earlier this year.
“I was actually manic a lot of the times that I would take on workloads, and I would say, ‘Yes, I can do this, I can do this, I can do this.’ I was conquering the world, but then I would come crashing down, and I would be more depressed than ever.”
Lovato began cutting herself at the age of 11. “It was a way of expressing my own shame, of myself, on my own body,” she told Us Weekly. “I was matching the inside to the outside.
“And there were some times where my emotions were just so built up, I didn’t know what to do. The only way that I could get instant gratification was through an immediate release on myself.”
Miley may be collecting scars like she collects tattoos. “Scars remind us of where we’ve been. not where we’re going,” she Tweeted recently.
Whatever the case, posting photos like this may encourage other kids. Bad move Miley. If you need help get it.
