I totally agree!
If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

I agree, but for option 2, it sounds more polite if you say," I don't care for Miley Cyrus, I prefer other types of music." Then it does not sound like you are trying to be mean at all!

I agree with you! I think that the 2 way is a much nicer way to express your feelings.

I like Miley Cyrus, but personally i don't think she's the best role model out there. She's waay better than some other people, though, and i think she's a great entertainer!!!

What a great thread Mini! I think the same goes for conversations with members. If you don't like something-either say it polietly or just drop the topic and don't say it at all. I love reading through everyone's posts on this thread...you really did make a very good point! Thanks, EG

PS. Make way for another Rep! Congrats and good job!

Great thread! I don't really get upset or cry about someones opinion though. It's not like they are saying it about you! But still, we should be nicer!!

Defeinetly....so think of her fans becuase with someother celeb you might LOVE gets bashed like that and you defend them but nothin ever seems to work. And it's not just with Miley cyrus...I've seen Fall out boy, Panic at the disco,and lotsa other celebs being bashed to. I mean seriously I have cryed becuase of somethings said here.


-thanks

I'm very sorry that things said here hurt your feeling to the point you cried. I want you to know that regardless of what people say, stay true to your heart, in life you'll find that everyone has different tastes and interests. It's what makes life interesting right..if it were all the same it'd be pretty boring. I remember where you are right now...a few years back, for me it was really hurtful when someone said negative stuff about things I liked. The important thing to remember is not to get argumentative about opinions. Try to let it roll off your skin for now and stay true to you.
If someone says something in a way that it's hurtful to you - say so! Say something like; I realize you can have a different opinion but you really hurt my feelings the way you express them to me.

Big hugs - hope you feel better about it soon.

And, remember, if it's rude - you should report it. People can say they don't agree but they should be able to say it nicely and tastefully.

I know you may be refering to me and let me state again: Saying that someone is not a good rolemodel is OK, If it is done in such a way as it is not rude. Sayin "Miley is SUCH a bad role model! She stinks!" isn't ok, but "Wel, after she took those pictures, I don't really think she is>" SI ok. Sometimes people misinterpeted things that aren't rude at all. Also, if anyone said my favorite singers were bad role models I'd probably agree. You don't have to love EVERYTHING about someone.
