Experts weigh in on Miley Cyrus smoking salvia out of a bong. Psychologist Dr. Keith Ablow told Hollywood Life: ‘She has a brilliant marketing team. She has to shed that ‘good girl’ image if she wants to build a billion-dollar brand.
She doesn’t have a ton of talent, but she has the raw sexuality of a young girl growing into a beautiful young woman and she has a willingness to sell that.. Our culture rewards anything short of murder. She wants to do something edgy, but not illegal. I think she’s doing it so her customer base will explode.’
Image consultant Robert K. Passikoff: ‘It doesn’t matter that [salvia] is legal in California because this goes counter to image.. The whole issue is that this is not the kind of behavior that sponsors want.. You’re talking about the heir to the magic kingdom. If it’s her you don’t do it.. and you don’t video tape it.’
Image consultant Michael Sands: ‘I believe a lot of kids that idolize Miley will want to try this plant & I think that once the parents catch onto what thier children are doing they will not let their children purchase Miley’s products & her products will take a hit.. She will rebound from this. In the short term it will be bad but she is talented.. hat a fool to have your friends video tape this!’
