Happy with a Young Star

I watched the Barbara Walter’s Special after the Academy Awards tonight and was very pleased with a young star she was interviewing. Miley Cirus (age 15) was asked the question “When you look at other young stars, Brittany and Jamie Lyn Spears, Lindsey Lohan; how can you be sure that you are not going to turn out the same way?” Miley answered by saying (as best I can remember) “Well, for me it comes down to having a family I can fall back on and who are honest with me, and my faith. For greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.”

I was blown away. Here is a young fifteen year old fully immersed in Hollywood who appears to still be staying grounded in her faith. I think it is awesome and just wanted to share on here. She is a young star who has quite an influence on the young girls in America right now and I think it is wonderful that she is pulling through this being a positive role model for the girls looking up to her. Some may find it funny, but I want to remember to pray for Miley, that she may continue to stay grounded in her faith and that young girls in our society can have a positive role model from Hollywood.

Anyone have any other thoughts?

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

  1. I’m still supportive of her. I love her show, like a majority of her music, but not sure about how I feel about how she dresses (and her makeup) for certain things like award shows and her concerts. A little too bit grown up for such wonderful “morals” if you ask me. However knowing who her parents are tells me she’ll never turn out as bad as a few other “role models” that there have been in the past.
