Miley Cyrus will be heading to the White House to screen her new Hannah Montana movie with Malia and Sasha Obama, but before that, she had to clear up some things regarding her now infamous photo that some found offensive. The picture taken by another ‘friend’ (and released on the net – nice…) had Miley and her boyfriend Justin Gaston and others making what appeared to be ‘asian eyes.’
In her original statement, many felt she wasn’t really apologizing, just blowing off the blame with the excuse that she was making a goofy face with her pals, so no harm done. Cyrus faced another round of sharp criticism in the media and by some prominent Asian groups who felt she did not pay attention to their concerns. She has gone back to her blog to send out a more contrite apology.
“I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone. I have learned a valuable lesson from this and know that sometimes my actions can be unintentionally hurtful. I know everything is a part of GOD’s ultimate plan, and mistakes happen so that eventually I will become the woman he aspires me to be.”
This time around it sounds genuine. I think she felt attacked before, and perhaps rightfully so. I hope she has a chance to do things with her friends that don’t become national news because some one close to her releases/sells everything she does to the world.
The Obama girls will absolutely enjoy their experience with Miley for the Disney Hannah Montana movie.
