"Dear Mother, Leave Miley Cyrus out of This"

From The Daily Mail  A daughter's open letter urging her mother never to comment about pop stars like Miley Cyrus gains 3 million views. A Texas daughter posted an open letter on her blog Monday urging her 38-year-old mother never to use Miley Cyrus as a example of the kind of girl she should never become.  Helen Keller of Frisco runs a blog called Roadkill Goldfish and used it to vent the extreme anger she felt after her mother made a laughing stock of her whole family by airing her narrow minded and frankly irrelevant views on Cyrus's now-infamous Video Music Award performance. To make matters worse, her mother had implied that Helen was a fan of the musically insipid former Disney child-star.  Thirty-six hours later, the letter titled 'Dear Mother, Leave Miley Cyrus Out Of This' had gained 3 million views. "If you ever even consider doing something like that again, I promise you that I will run up and twerk so you will see how ridiculous adults complaining about teenagers looks," Helen wrote.  "I  will duct tape your hands to a chair so your opinions don't hang out like an 12 inch hot dog in a 6 inch bun. Everybody knows that Miley Cyrus is for babies and if you cared about me at all you'd know that I'm into Lady Gaga."  Teen angst like that runs throughout Keller's heartfelt letter, which as of Thursday evening had received 1,400 comments.
