Quotables: Amy Poehler Needs to Tackle Miley Cyrus Next

12/10/2013 2:00 PM PST, by
"The amount of Instagram selfies seems crazy out-of-control. The idea of, 'This is my face and everyone needs to see it all the time,' is so far from the privacy that people used to seek. Now everyone acts the way '80s performance artists used to act. Everybody's Karen Finley. Everybody's like, 'This is my vagina! I'm gonna put s--- all over me and take pictures!' 
When I was a kid, you'd go to a party or a punk rock show and you'd have fun, and you'd bring a camera, and you'd take pictures, and those pictures would stay inside the camera. Pictures were an addition to the experience. Now the picture is the experience. If I'm hanging out with a friend, and they take a picture of me, it's like 'Ugh.' I mean, I hate looking at pictures of myself. It immediately takes me out of the experience."

--Amy Poehler described her feelings on the topic of selfies, and she is just as inspiring as ever.

Don't you just love her though? So few people are capable of telling it like it is like Amy Poehler, and that's why it is just such a delight when she does. It's just a shame that so very many people won't listen.

So the click bait link from TMZ tells us that Amy slammed Miley, the Kardashians and Ke$ha. Then the headline here says Amy should go after Miley. Then you read what she said and the reality is she didn't slam a single person mentioned.

Why am I not surprised at this inept writing?

This website is ridiculous. Nowhere does she mention ANY of the names that were mentioned on TMZ. Such nonsense. She wasn't talking about anyone in particular. Such a sleazy way to get clicks.

Shes an actress. No way she doesn't like looking at pics of herself. Insecure much?
