Miley Cyrus came out with revealing pictures recently (what's new?). Only these pictures showcased a nasty sunburn she'd gotten during her latest tour stop in Florida. All of the media attention is on her skin... but in the erotic sense, and not the healthcare sense. All of the advice is focusing on aloe to cut some of the pain she'll be subjected to at present. While no one is mentioning the likelihood of much great suffering in the future.
I see this as a golden opportunity for her to make a positive impact by discussing the rising rates of melanoma in people in their 20's. It's now the leading cancer in our age group, and kills one person every hour. But, ya know, I guess we can just keep looking at her lady parts and making light of sunburns.
The reason for posting these latest pics is clearly to bring further attention to her loose cannon marketing blitz. We all like to look at the crazy hot girl, and watch what she does next. It's not surprising that you can find practically sixty-five million articles on these pictures. But what you won't find are stats on her now elevated risk of melanoma, or stats on her risks of basal and squamous cell carcinomas. If she comes down with cancer later in her life, though, it may bring us closer to my tongue-in-cheek goal of making cancer the next celebrity trend.
And here's an article from Huffpost about Miley's latest escapade.
