The Best Kind of Apology

Take two.

JailBait was told by Disney after pressure from Asian advocacy groups to rewrite her apology because the first time wasn’t good enough. In this climate, no one wants to piss off investors. It always comes down to money, non?

So anyway, Miley Cyrus posted another message on her blog:

"I want to thank all of my fans for their support not only this week, but always! I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone.

I have learned a valuable lesson from this and know that sometime my actions can be unintentionally hurtful. I know everything is a part of GODs ultimate plan, and mistakes happen so that eventually I will become the woman he aspires me to be.

Peace and love, Miles"

Riddled with errors, again. But let’s put that aside for now. How about an Apology Analysis, just like Christian Bale?

This one is simple. This is my favourite kind of apology. Because it’s not an apology.

“I’m sorry if you feel offended” is not the same as “I’m sorry that I offended you.” There is no accountability in the first, no ownership.

Why do I say this? Because admit, we all do it, all the time.

So is she really sorry?

She’s sorry that you feel badly. She’s sorry that you are mad at her. But does she think what she did is wrong? Debatable.

As for “God’s ultimate plan” – this is what makes me crazy. Not the God thing, but that she wants to “become the woman he aspires me to be”.


This is what happens when people don’t read but want to sound well-read, tossing around random words like they should fit into a sentence just because it sounds like lyrics from a song.

And every day there are parents, parents pushing their children to become the next Miley at the expense of everything else.

Fame > Literacy

Yay for child stardom!
