Watch the video. Miley seems so uncomfortable with this new image. Her eyes seem to me to betray that others, older adults, have manipulated her into playing a role in order to capitulate to what kids may want in a pop star.

This almost comes across as parody.

Miley is a masterpiece – Ephesians 2:10 – God’s artwork, his handiwork, his poiema/poem. Her identity is not determined by pop status or album sales, but by who God has made her to be – his beloved daughter.
