from Vigilant Citizen:
In the Black Mirror episode “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too”, Miley Cyrus plays the role of a mind-controlled pop star with a fake persona, who is tightly controlled and medicated by ruthless handlers. None of this is “science fiction”.
The fifth season of the series took things to a slightly different direction: It included a somewhat unusual episode, which adopted a somewhat different tone and featured a somewhat unexpected star: Miley Cyrus.
In the episode titled Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too, Miley plays the role of Ashley O, a pop star who is extremely popular with young people. But then, we discover that Ashley O is actually a mind-controlled slave with a fake persona who is tightly controlled by a team of ruthless handlers who keep her under constant heavy medication. If you’ve read other articles on this site, you know that none of this is fiction. Several pop stars actually live this way. Including Miley Cyrus who has been a pawn of the entertainment industry since a very young age.
From a child actress in the Disney series Hannah Montana, Miley turned into a hypersexualized pop star when she began her solo career. There are several articles on VC that explain exactly how Miley has been used by the industry to push agendas. The fact that she plays this exact role is an episode of Black Mirror is … creepy. Especially when considering some events in Miley’s own past.
Although Black Mirror depicts a sanitized and romanticized version of mind control, several basic elements are there. Here’s a look at the episode.
Mind-Controlled Pop Star
At the beginning of the episode, Ashley O is presented as a pop star with an “empowerment vibe” who constantly talks about the importance of controlling one’s own destiny. Ironically, not unlike most pop stars out there, she is not “empowered” and she has absolutely no control over her own destiny.
Indeed, her entire life and career are controlled by her aunt Catherine who is actually her MK handler. While she acts like a warm, caring mother-figure, Catherine always makes sure that Ashley is obedient and productive through heavy medication
While, on camera, Ashley is all fun and smiles, we quickly realize that she is basically a prisoner of her house and her pop star persona.
When Catherine hears Ashley singing about being an “animal in a cage” (an apt way of describing an MK slave), she asks her if she’s taking her meds.
In past articles, we’ve seen how controlled pop stars sometimes attempted to break out of their persona to write songs honest songs describing what they’re going through. For example, Kesha’s song Dancing With the Devil, which was written while she was under the control of the producer Dr. Luke, talks about how she “sold her soul” and that “there’s no turning back”. Unspringsingly enough, the song was never released.
In a meeting with Ashley’s “doctor”, Catherine worries about her niece writing “obtuse BS that nobody will buy”. The conclusion: Her meds need to be changed.
After discovering that Ashley wanted more control over her life and career, Catherine did what any caring aunt would do: She drugged her enough to put her in a coma.
A similar situation actually happened to Miley Cyrus in 2014:
Even stranger: Miley filmed a disturbing music video WHILE she was hospitalized.
Is Black Mirror insinuating that Miley’s 2014 “allergic reaction” was, in fact, something else&
The scenes above also recall the real-life situation of Britney Spears. As explained in my article about the Free Britney movement, Britney was forcibly detained in a mental health facility after she refused to take her meds. The story was first covered up by her handlers who claimed that she was “taking time off due to her father’s poor health”.
