Miley Cyrus Or Soulja Boy: Who Will Have The Longer Career?
Miley Cyrus Cyrus and Soulja Boy Tell'Em have achieved fame before the age of 20. They've had hit singles and popular Tweets. They have all the money in the world and a large fan base that follows them on Twitter and YouTube. And controversy arises whenever they say or do something outlandish. These two teen stars already have successful careers that a forty year old aspiring star would want. But with the rise of their careers, there will be a point where their level of fame will decline and vanish into oblivion. Between Miley and Soulja Boy, whose career will last the longest?
Miley Cyrus is only 16 and she has already surpassed Disney's former 'it' girl Hilary Duff in music, film, and television. Cyrus' music career has been impressive with two albums debuting #1 on the Billboard charts. She's performed at sold-out concerts with many of her Hannah Montana fans in attendance. She's also starred in Hannah Montana: The Movie which was a box office success. Whether it's acting or singing, this versatility may prolong her career. Let's face it, there aren't a lot of singers that can act or actors who can sing. Miley has proven that she can do both. And she has a loyal following that watches her TV show daily, buys all of her albums, and attends her films and concerts. Her natural talent and fan base may keep her around forever.
The same can be said about Soulja Boy. Like Cyrus, Soulja Boy has had commercial success with hit singles like "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" and "Kiss Me Thru the Phone." He had old ladies dancing to "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" in 2007. Young and old, he has a fan base that consists of mostly women who attend his concerts and kiss the computer screen every time he posts shirtless pictures of himself on Twitter. In this YouTube and Twitter generation, he attracts millions of viewers and listeners because he's young and releases songs that are fun to dance to which appeal to the masses, rather than just hip-hop audiences. This mass appeal and his online fan base may keep him in the limelight for a while.

Miley Cyrus' career has been Cinderella-like so far. But once Hannah Montana ends, she may see a decrease in popularity. She will no longer have Disney backing her and promoting her albums and films. And as she gets older, her young audience will turn somewhere else. There will come a day when there will be a new Disney 'it' girl with a better show that will overshadow Miley's show. Fans may grow tired of Cyrus and that's when she will have to move to an older audience with songs aimed towards adults. Cyrus has already alienated herself from her young audience by deleting her Twitter account which had 2 million followers. She may be headed in the same path as Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears. She's already posted risqué pictures of herself online and danced around a pole at this year's Teen Choice Awards. She's not far behind of Lohan or Spears.
