Where have all the celebrity parents gone?

ONTARIO. July 18. KAZINFORM Where in the world is Justin Bieber's mother? Where are Miley Cyrus' dad and mum - folks whose lone act of parental concern was to give their girl permission to ink her body with tattoos?

I've had it up to here with this generation of junior celebs who use their fame as an excuse for behavior one wouldn't accept from a street hustler.

All over the world, children, some not long out of diapers, are in for trouble. Years ago, kids wanted to grow up to be like their teacher, big brothers or sisters.

Now, it's all Miley and Justin, all the time.

In just a few months, Bieber, the 19-year-old diminutive Canadian pop star, has devolved into a human train wreck. He's Amanda Bynes, without the wig.

The long series of appalling behavior hit a climax when Biebs was seen in a videotape obtained by TMZ.com, laughing earlier this year with his buddies while relieving himself into a mop bucket in the back of an unidentified New York restaurant. The entitled pipsqueak was apparently too self-involved to consider that a minimum-wage-earning fan might be required to clean up after him. Bieber was then seen spraying cleaning liquid on a photo of Bill Clinton, unloading an F-bomb at the former president. He later apologized to Clinton. Not to the working people of New York.
The disgusting behavior should have sent Bieber into a new career in fast-food management. It probably won't.

Though technically an adult, Bieber behaves like a toddler in a tantrum. He should not walk free without adult supervision. But who will step in?

The bad behavior is amping up. Bieber drove over 100 mph in a 65-mph zone on a California highway last year. The paparazzi made me do it, he complained.

Biebs had to be restrained by his own bodyguard this year in London as he cursed at and lunged at a photographer. Drugs were found on his tour bus (but were not linked to Justin). His pet capuchin monkey, Mally, was seized by customs agents in Germany. In Poland, he walked, bizarrely shirtless, through airport security. He also passed out onstage in London.

In April, while visiting the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, where Anne hid before dying in a Nazi death camp at age 15, he enraged Jews and people of good conscience.

"Truly inspiring to be able to come here," he wrote in the museum's guest book. "Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber" (a Bieber fan).

Who's minding the miscreant? The mother who raised him sounds more like a pal than a parent.
"You know, you've got to love them and encourage them, and he knows what I think. He knows the things that I disagree with,'' mum Pattie Mallette indulgently told Fox & Friends last week. "But he also knows the many things that I'm really proud of him for. He does a lot of great things that don't show up in the headlines.''

Miley Cyrus

Miley has fallen low since her seemingly wholesome days starring in the Disney Channel's Hannah Montana. She was voted Worst Female Role Model in a recent online poll of parents by CouponCodes4u.com, beaten out on the male side only by Rihanna-basher Chris Brown.

Today Miley, 20, parades onstage in her underwear. She referred to herself as a "stoner" in a video in which she appeared with a bong. Miley, who may or may not still be engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth, was taped eating a cake shaped like male private parts.

But don't expect Miley's parents to intervene. Country-singer dad Billy Ray Cyrus defended Miley against parents who complained when she gyrated like a stripper on a pole during the Teen Choice Awards in 2009 - when Miley was 16. That year, she was also videotaped bumping and grinding against a 44-year-old man.

"I just think that Miley loves entertaining people," he told Access Hollywood.
A year earlier, Billy Ray posed like a lover with his then-15-year-old daughter, who was draped in a sheet, in a Vanity Fair spread.

She was seen this month gyrating in hot pants and stiletto boots against a female dancer on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

And mum?

Miley and mum Tish Cyrus were photographed at the beach, showing off large and seedy tattoos, the first of which Miley is said to have received at age 17 with her parents' permission.
The good news is that my daughter is done with Miley and her trashy ways. She's a role model no more.
But there are lots of other kids ready to take her place.

Be afraid.
