Seriously, Yahoo?

I accidentally and tragically happened to stumble across a headline on Yahoo’s homepage about Miley Cirus’ perceived faux pas on the “orange carpet” at some Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Awards. Even though what I was looking for was an older headline regarding an ancient Biblical codex recently unearthed somewhere in the Middle East, I thought “What could this girl Miley have possibly done SO wrong to garner her a headline on the Yahoo homepage?

“Former “Hannah Montana” star Miley Cyrus looked a bit out of step on the orange carpet at Nickelodeon’s 24th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards, wearing a long floral-print dress with a train when most of her peers opted for shorts or short skirts.”

Oh no… how could she???

Seriously?? I mean, I understand the marketing concept behind pushing the entertainment section of Yahoo… but with nuclear plants out of control, riots breaking out in Afghanistan over some Floridian bonehead minister burning the Quran, and fighting in Abdijan (not to mention this ancient codex I’m searching for which could seriously affect Christianity as we know it), is Miley’s choice in award-wear really important enough to use up valuable real estate on Yahoo’s front page?? Does anyone else see the stupidity in this?

Additionally and on one last note of aggravation…. so Miley’s peers chose to wear shorts or skirts…. well good for you Miley. I hope you wear this with pride, take it to heart, and run with it. Aren’t we always telling our youth to not give in to peer pressure? Yay for individuality. I hope next year she wears an Oscar de la Renta evening gown, or better yet, a dead ostrich and finally outdo the fabulous Bjork.

That’s it for my rant. Now, where is that Codex..?
