Mickey Mouse Club we are officially over!

Let’s take a ride down memory lane to the 90’s where pop music was in all of our heads and where nice little girls such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera were publishing their first music videos and performing their first songs. Who doesn’t remember the school uniform and the pig tails Britney wore while performing Baby One More Time or Christina’s cropped shirts when singing Genie in a Bottle ? Yeah these nice little girls from the Mickey Mouse Club…

Well yes these were the good old innocent Mickey Mouse Club times but then a really weird evolution happened where suddenly everybody felt he or she had to trash it down a little bit. Britney Spears transformed into a slave and Christina Aguilera seemed to have developed a deep love for dirt and pants that were missing the one or the other part, but at least she stayed true to her cropped shirts:

So here we have two typical Disney transformations that were both quite surprising and where fashion underlined a transformation from a teen idol to an attempt to look like a sexy vamp or even a hooker. But these kinds of developments where even peaked when little Miley Cyrus entered the stage. Miley started out as a little girl in a Disney series, who everybody considered to be the cute little girl next door (I have to admit I never considered her cute). Well, but a Disney star wouldn’t be a Disney star if she hadn’t had a huge image transformation as well. So Hannah Montana ultimately became this really awkward person that always need to show off her tongue.

This transformation was also marked by fashion or better by no fashion at all in the end.

Here I can only thank my mum for never letting me leave the house dressed like I could only afford semi-clothing or dressed like I wanted to go to the beach rather than school. Because after all I don’t think the world needs another Miley Cyrus, who mistakes a wrecking ball for a swing.
