Oh that Miley Cyrus, she is just always full of surprises. First, Jewdar finds out that she was really Hannah Montana all along, and now she comes out in Hunger Magazine with the following tasty morsel:
“With magazines, with movies, it’s always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old. It can’t be like this 70 year old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear. I’m going out, I know what they want to hear.”
Now, Miley is doubtlessly going to be taking a huge amount of flak for this, and we can just imagine the Abe Foxmans of the world sharpening their knives. Jewdar, however is inclined to be generous. Miley can at times be confused (like where she seemed to imagine that she had a foam phallus), but on this issue, we imagine she knows from what she speaks. To be sure, there are no shortage of old Jews who apparently do a pretty good job of knowing what the kids in the clubs want to hear, but can we at long last recognize that for better or worse, a lot of the decisions regarding what people watch and listen to are made by Jew-Know-Who?
As for those who argue that it may be true, but their ethnicity is not relevant, Jewdar would suggest that old Jews are objectively funnier than old goyim, and thus the image of old Jews making these decisions is funnier than the image of old goyim doing it. If you don’t believe me, watch some old Sid Dithers clips from SCTV, and imagine him talking about what’s hip and what isn’t.
At any rate, we hope Miley survives this, and goes on to a long and happy life. And Miley, might we suggest that, just to smooth things over, your next project be a collection of Yiddish favorites. Working title: Matzoh Ball.
