Taylor Swift should seriously consider taking some career advice from former Disney darling Miley Cyrus. According to former pop star Debbie Gibson, that is.
The “Electric Youth” singer knows a thing or two about growing up in the spotlight. For several years she was a pretty hot commodity in the pop world, releasing several best-selling albums and performing shows all around the world. However, worrying about what everyone thought about her ultimately took its toll on the poor girl’s psyche.
The comments about Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus arrived during Debbie Gibson’s appearance on Bethenny Frankel’s talk show. In addition to performing her aforementioned hit, the former pop princess gave Swift some questionable advice about her career.
“Taylor reminds me a bit of me in that I was always worried about what other people thought. Years of therapy later, I’m here to tell Taylor to break it down, be a bit more raw, and don’t worry so much about what other people think,” Gibson explained.
She added, “The thing is with Miley — now, obviously I don’t want her to get into trouble, trouble — I like that she’s being authentic. She’s being a normal 20-year-old, and there’s something oddly healthy about that. And if you don’t like it, change the channel.”
Whether Taylor Swift should take advice from anyone is seriously debatable. As far as we can tell, the singer is doing just fine the way she is at the moment. When Swift makes the decision to star in something along the lines of Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark, perhaps she should seek some career pointers from Gibson.
Of course, the “Lost in Your Eyes” singer isn’t the only person giving Taylor advice these days. Swift recently told InStyle magazine that she received some knowledge about life and love from friend and singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.
“I think that you can love people without it being the great love. Ed said something that really resonated with me. He says there are different kinds of love. There’s physical attraction, mental attrition and emotional attraction, there’s also comfort and obsession. You need to have all those things in one person,” she said.
The singer continued, “You have to mentally respect them, be physically attracted and have a comfort level. You’re obsessed with them, yet you also know they’re going to stay. I’ve never had that in one person.”
