I love your show and i look forward to it every week, but seriously, leave Miley Cyrus alone. I’m not a huge fan of hers and I used to rag on her all the time until a friend of mine brought this to my attention. She’s a teenager with a ton of attention. All of her songs have great messages and she’s not exactly the most scandelous star out there.
