Dazed praised Miley Cyrus among other female celebs that are killing off the role-model narrative by reacting against the push towards being perfect.
The publication gives props to the females who gives no fucks like Cardi B, Rihanna and Halsey. Dazed says, "younger female artists are beginning to take ownership of their stories, reclaiming them from the once-suffocating grip of the press. Cardi B has consistently been open about her past as a stripper and self-proclaimed “street bitch”, while Rihanna remains vocal about domestic abuse. It’s through examples like this that our exhausting pursuit of authenticity pays off, with ‘flawed’ women killing off the traditional ‘role model’ narrative."
Dazed also proclaims, "The ‘role model’ trope is naive and outdated, especially when assigned to 20-somethings who are obviously going to engage in unfathomable debauchery. The world would be an incredibly boring place if all pop stars were squeaky clean; culture needs imperfect people to create nuanced, interesting art".
Safe and boring artist can continue making music catered towards 5 year olds.
