Miley

A cautionary tale from Joshua Maddox Wellington.
A portrait of the author as Miley Cyrus: Joshua Maddox Wellington channels the muse.

They say be careful what you wish for!

IN THE FIRST couple of months after I’d swung into Sydney like a wrecking ball I’d met some cool and some not-so-cool guys. Some of them tried to impress me with their bank balance, some tried to impress me with their abs. But whatever, I can’t be tamed.

More than one potential beau had glared with contempt at the large Miley Cyrus poster that graced my bedroom wall. She was nude and emerging from a swimming pool, mascara running down her baby face, her undercut style hair was slicked back and her tongue was hanging from her mouth like a parched camel. She looked trashy, disgusting, irreverent and totally inappropriate – she was just being Miley. I loved it. Something about grossing out uptight people with Miley’s audacity gave me a thrill. I suppose the natural rebel in me takes pleasure in shocking people. If I’m ever in a fancy hotel or nice restaurant, I often feel the urge to re-enact the Spice Girls Wannabe video and run riot while stuffy old people look on at the horror of it all. Miley seemed to represent this quality in me in a less assaulting manner, and I loved sporting her face or twerking on my iPhone case or my desk at work, just to ruffle some feathers.

Bored one Sunday, I was looking through my Instagram notifications and I noticed that I had a new follower with an interesting username: glitter_arty90. I looked through his profile and he had some pretty cool posts. He had a striking face, a chiselled bone structure with penetrating blue eyes and short blond hair. He was heavily tattooed like one of those on-trend Tumblr boys, and had an off-beat sense of fashion. He wore an Amish-type hat and overalls in a lot of different photos, which I thought was pretty stylish. Also, the photography he posted was a cut-above. He had an eye for trashy aesthetics and he seemed like the kind of guy I should be friends with.
