Doesn’t that kind of defeat Sex and the City’s purpose, Miley Cyrus?

I want to be taken serious as a movie blogger, so you’d think that would stop me from posting any sort of news about Miley Cyrus, right?

Well, this news is just too weird to pass up.

The pre-packaged Disney phenomenon that goes by the pseudonym “Hannah Montana” on stage and television recently had an interview with TV Guide, and — let me just warn any weirdos who may be reading this with questionable intentions: This isn’t about her taking clothes off — she talked about a rather peculiar movie or television (it’s not clear which medium she intended for the project) idea she’d like to star in sometime in the near future:

“I’d love to do a younger, cleaner version of Sex and the City.”


What does that even mean? The show found its popularity because of the controversial and racy talk, storylines and otherwise. I think to dumb it down for a younger audience would not only defeat the purpose of the show’s original intent, but also work against any advancement the show made in women’s rights and freedom to talk upfront and openly about sex.

I’m sure a “younger, cleaner” version of the show would ultimately end up as an updated “Saved by the Bell.” I mean, would they be able to call a show “Sex and the City: The High School Years” on Disney? Haha, I just made myself laugh — “Sex and the City: The High School Years;” seriously, you’ve gotta give it to me for coming up with that.

Anyways, my point is simple: That’s a dumb freakin’ idea.
