So, I'm sure all of you have heard of the singer Miley Cyrus whether you want to or not. I'll allow my readers to have their own opinions of the girl, but I personally don't enjoy her voice, think her show is retarded, and think all the fans that follow her really need to get lives. Never in my life have I seen any one preteen idol have so much... commercial junk. She has her own board games, camera, clothing (including underwear), video games, poster, locker decorations, backpack, lunchbox, thermos, gummy snacks, and more that I'm not going to even bother listing because it would take far too long. Children are obsessing over this rockstar who somehow manages to keep two lives under control--both as Hannah Montana and as Miley Cyrus.
Recently, I just discovered that obsession really can go too far. Perhaps some of you are familiar with the site Twitter. If you like the status bars of Myspace and Facebook but don't have the time to visit both sites and update your status, you can always just use Twitter because all Twitter is is a status bar. Sites like Twitter, Myspace, and Facebook are starting to become popular even in the world of Hollywood. Miraculously, these rockstars, actors/actresses, and other famous people of our society have time somewhere to update Facebook, Myspace, and/or Twitter. I really think it's their assistants and not them.
Now, I'm sure many of you can guess where this is going. Miley Cyrus has--or at least had--a Twitter. I've included the link to her old Twitter page, which she removed. Evidently she got tired of it for some reason or another. I wouldn't know, I didn't look into her reasons for leaving Twitter. This is about obsession, not "why Miley Cyrus left Twitter." Evidently, some fans were rather ticked that Miley stopped using Twitter, however. After all, with being able to update your status from your mobile phone, fans could practically stop Miley Cyrus' every move if she updated frequently.
One such unhappy fan has gone to the extreme. They have a Twitter account under the name "mileysavefuzzy." If you scroll down to the bottom, you can see where this fan's obsession turned into freakish madness. Here is one of several odd Twitter posts from this account, this one being posted October 27th, this year: "Either way, if Miley doesn't come back, as sad as it may be, and with your comments in mind, Fuzzy will be gone in 20 (or 27) days." The best that can be deduced from this without knowing more is that if Miley Cyrus doesn't return to Twitter, something or someone named Fuzzy is going to be "gone." I'm sure we can all figure out that "gone" means "dead". In what seems to be their first Twitter post on October 24th this year, this person gives out a link to their "new project" leading to a website with the header "Will Miley Save Fuzzy?"
Follow the link I provided at the bottom of this entry, and you will find yourself transported to a site all about this obsessed fans desire to sacrifice their cat and eat it if Miley Cyrus doesn't return to Twitter. My sister actually told me about all of this just last night, and the first response that came to my mind was "What the hell??? You don't sacrifice your loving pet just because some dumb ass rockstar decides to leave a social networking site!" Pardon my French, but it irks me that people can be so obsessive to even make a site like this.
If you surf around on that site, you can see that supposedly Fuzzy is dead and was sadly euthenized and eaten by his loving master on November 23rd this year. There are photos as "proof" of Fuzzy's demise, but I can assure you the cat only appears to be napping and not at all dead. There is also a link on this page to Miley's numerous comments regarding the impending doom of Fuzzy; there are four videos. My ears were painfully tormented by these videos because my sister watched them last night I believe in order to discover what the hell "Miley Save Fuzzy" is all about.
To sum it all up, I don't believe that Fuzzy is actually dead. In fact, I think he may actually be enjoying the warm sunshine of this Wednesday morning, where ever he may live. However, if poor Fuzzy was indeed murdered and eaten by the one person he loved, trusted, and adored... It's a lesson to us all not to let our obsession drive us to madness.
What sorrow it is that a cat had to be butchered because some idiot fan craved Miley Cyrus's Twitter updates like a sex addict craves porn....
Mileysavefuzzy, you are a fool.
