Taylor Swift vs. Miley Cyrus: Are They Role Models?

by at . Comments

Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus have very different sounds (country vs. pop); different looks (blonde vs. brunette); and different philosophies on where they stand as celebrities.

Cyrus - who most recently came under fire for making a joke about marijuana - has made it clear that she just wants to be a typical teenager whose occupation happens to make her rich and famous.

“My job isn’t to tell your kids how to act or how not to act because I’m still figuring that out myself,” Miley told Harper’s Bazaar a few months ago. “To take that away from me is a bit selfish. Your kids are going to make mistakes whether I do or not.”

Swift, conversely, is happy to embrace her status as a role model. She understands it comes with the territory.

At the Billboard Women of the Year Awards on Friday, Taylor referenced Faith Hill in an interview with Katie Couric, saying:

“For me, when Faith Hill performed on an awards show, everything mattered... everything she said said, did, wore I tried to copy it. That’s what little girls do, so there is a big responsibility and I take it very seriously.”

Two artists. Two contrasting points of view. On whose side do you fall? Do you believe Taylor and Miley are role models and should act as such?


@Vixie I guess kids should look up to you as a role model. But what justice does that do if miley and taylor are horrible what are you?? I mean they don't sell their pussy's on the corner of the street unlike you!!!


miley is the WORST person kids could ever look up to, shes a spoilt little brat! taylor isn't any better..


Nobodys perfect, i gotta work it. Again and again til i get it right. Nobodys perfect, you live and you learn. And if i mess it up sometimes. Hey nobodys perfect. Sweet nibblets! Theres a time in a childs life that she wants to be a tv star, shoot my daddy did it and i look up to him i wanted to do what he did minus the mullet. But i grew up and wanted to be who i want and who are all these people to tell me i cant be who i want to be!........sorry started getting creepy there haha. No I think Miley is doing good. Yes she was suppose to be a RM and little girls looked up to her but who are we as a society to tell her no u cant be what u feel u are inside u must stay hannah forever. Thats not fair of us to ask of her. I mean look at Britney Spears she hit rock bottom but shes making a mean come back!! Hopefully Miley wont get that bad but if we dont lay off of her it might. Keep the faith Miley u still have amazing fans who support u! =)


team taylor..we love u


@Dean Clark by the looks of your comment your the barking dog here!!! Btw I agree that asking who is the best RM is like a differentiation between day ad night. They both have different qualities but we can never decide on which to pick, day or night.
Just like that these two Georges beautiful girls have different qualities but we can't choice between them because they are both awesome!!!!!!


Taylor Swift should date Taylor Lautner. They wid make a good match!


Go Taylor-))))also Mileys gr8 too- but didnt dig her showing her stuff on the internet.


I like taylor swift-shes got class and shes sweet and friendly. Really a lovly natural gal:)

Miley is a barking dog...what kind of stupid arse question is this..like comparing night and day...


Miley is someone that a child would go shopping or clubbing with and drink even though he/she is under age. But taylor is a real role model. She is more mature and knows were exactly to draw the line. But either way both singers rock!!
