Het gaat niet goed met zangeres Miley Cyrus. De afgelopen week knipte ze haar kapsel heel kort, waarbij ze zichzelf tot in den treure verdedigde tegenover haar Twitter followers. Tevens is ze een behoorlijk aantal kilo’s afgevallen en vraagt ze via Twitter constant om aandacht. Haar gedrag doet heel veel denken aan Britney Spears die vlak voor haar break down haar hoofd kaal schoor en allerlei rare capriolen uithaalde. Helaas is de vergelijking niet onterecht. Want ook Miley zou net zoals Britney Spears bipolar zijn. Deze diagnose zou onlangs zijn vastgesteld, maar helaas wil ze maar niet aan de medicijnen. Hieronder twee blind items die de afgelopen weken de ronde deden, waarbij het om Miley zou gaan. De dame heeft overduidelijk dringend hulp nodig. Triest.
This very popular young performer is so much fun! And so upbeat! At least, that’s the side you see. What you don’t see is her dark side. The one that causes her to hurt herself. The good news is that there is an explanation, and that there are medications that can help her a lot. The bad news is that she refuses to take them because she doesn’t want to “lose her personality”. You see, she was recently diagnosed as having bipolar disorder, and she thinks that the medication will turn her into a zombie who can’t create or have fun or enjoy life. She is already acting out in public, and her friends, family, and S.O. fear that she is heading toward a Britney-style meltdown. They really don’t want to have her committed or put her under a conservatorship, but if she continues to refuse, they may have to take drastic action. In the interim, she continues to take her body to extremes in public, and to self-harm by cutting and burning herself and pulling out small clumps of her hair in private. Not exactly a party.
This blind item actually touches on the themes of two recent blind items: One where a young celebrity is dealing with mental health issues; and one where management tries to help a celebrity in trouble. In this case, we’re talking about a young performer. Not too young. Old enough to vote. Old enough to make her own business decisions. She is unhealthy and she is acting out and self-medicating. Her mom – who has managed her career for years – sat down with her to express her concerns. She told her that she needed to tame her public antics, and she asked her to spend some time out of the spotlight getting physically and emotionally well. The daughter’s response? “You’re fired!” Mom and daughter have not spoken for three weeks, and the daughter continues to spiral downward.
