Miley Cyrus grants 7-year-old cancer patient’s Make-a-Wish Foundation meeting; now she wants to meet Justin Bieber, too

Miley Cyrus

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a blessing to families who hope to grant their terminally ill children one last wish. But one family that benefited from the Make-a-Wish Foundation is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Little Miley Hodges, 7, was diagnosed with Stage IV Osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer. Miley’s last wish was to meet pop idol Justin Bieber. But the troubled singer’s schedule is filled with studio time and court appearances. So Miley, who reportedly has less than four months to live, settled on meeting her namesake Miley Cyrus instead.

Miley Cyrus invited the family to fly to California where a meeting was arranged at a recording studio. But the meeting didn’t go as well as the family planned — depending on who you listen to.

“From what I know, it was not a very good experience for them,” Brandon Deboer, a family friend, told RadarOnline.com.

But Miley’s dad Bert insisted that the family was “grateful for the chance to meet Cyrus in person.”

“My daughter met one of her idols. Period,” he said.

Apparently, that wasn’t enough. Now the family is demanding that Bieber make time in his busy schedule to meet with little Miley. And they have enlisted big name stars such as Puff Daddy (formerly Diddy) and Kelly Osbourne to help pressure the singer into making the meeting happen.

“She loves Justin, his music and that he tells her never to give up on her dreams. Her dream is to meet him one day, only she doesn’t have many days left,” Deboer said.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation has apparently distanced itself from the family.

So an organization called Believe4Children has stepped in to make Miley’s wish of meeting Justin come true.

Miley’s dad bristled at the suggestion that his family is ungrateful.

“I think that if she wants to meet 50 celebrities, she deserves that chance. She has fought hard to stay alive. She has beaten the odds, [and] hasn’t gave up,” Hodge’s dad said.

Another family friend confided: “She doesn’t have much time left. She is an amazing girl. She is always smiling and wants to make sure everyone else is ok. When she hasn’t been in the hospital, she’s gone back to visit other patients who are there. Now, we’re hoping to make her dream of meeting Justin Bieber come true.

The Make-A-Wish foundation didn’t return Radar Online‘s request for a comment.

I thought she did Joe wrong and tried to use Isaac (the son) to control him and get back at him. Was Joe childish :yes: but his family also took her in when she had nothing and she dogged them out. Now she has the new guy all posted up talking about he is a great father figure for her son. Unless I am missing something :stop: The boy had a diddy and he has ALWAYS been there. To the point of him wanting custody and almost getting it. Women like that burn me up.

    Eggzacktly! In Corey’s defense, he did try to do right by her. He was just a day late, because she had already moved on to Jeremy.

    I think Jeremy works on oil rigs. It has to be something very risky in order to have a payout like that.

Maybe I’m just being sensitive ( preggers and all), but I don’t see why the family is being seen as ungrateful. If ( God Forbid) one of my daughters fell terminally ill, I would want to spend every last moment with them trying to make them happy. I mean, why not??

    Why we are (still) talking about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s Vogue cover

    By Cara Kelly
    March 25 at 3:15 pm
    Those who pay little attention to the fashion industry may be perplexed as to why the release of a magazine cover with an attractive, famous couple locked in a loving pose could lead to such intense controversy. Even subscribers to Vogue, which released its April cover Friday featuring Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, seemed a little shocked at their own responses.

    Arguments reverberating around the Internet over the last few days have largely focused on this central question: Does Kim Kardashian deserve to be on the cover of Vogue?

    This cover image taken by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue shows the April 2014 issue of the high fashion magazine featuring rapper Kanye West and TV personality Kim Kardashian. (AP Photo/Vogue, Annie Leibovitz)

    Anna Wintour helped redefine the notion of a cover model during her tenure with the century-old publication. The former editor in chief and current artistic director at Conde Nast led the transition from super models, who monopolized the front slots through the eighties and nineties, to celebrity images on the cover. What began as a sprinkling of starlets over the past two decades became a permanent shift in the early 2000s, and the Lauren Huttons, Giseles and Kate Mosses of the world were relegated to inside spreads.

    Most of the women featured (Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, Charlize Theron, Penelope Cruz, etc.) were actresses or ‘it’ girls nearly interchangeable with the models they displaced. However, the transition from models to actresses underscored the idea that the cover model role was significant –an acknowledgement of accomplishments ranging from break-out roles to notable awards.

    The selection of Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Rodham Clinton as cover subjects (October and December of 1998, respectively), cemented the idea that the position was one of honor. A Vogue cover celebrated women with poise and confidence who had made a contribution, if not to the world of fashion, then to the world at large.

    That’s the largest fault that long-time subscribers have found in the choice of a reality star and her rapper fiance. For all of the Sienna Miller and Blake Lively covers (who fill more of the waif super model position than role model) Vogue has also featured first ladies, Grammy winners and Meryl Streep.

    Yet, Miller has been nominated for two BAFTAs and a Golden Globe, and Lively has a half-dozen film roles and a fashion-focused TV show under her belt — accomplishments that encompass a palatable sense of worthiness for Vogue to push to readers.

    Does a reality TV show and an impressive social media following rise to this bar? Is Vogue telling people that a sex tape and a gig with E! are desirable goals for young women? For better or worse, many commenters on Vogue’s platforms have expressed that these merits do not fit with their sensibilities.

    Another area of debate has centered on whether “Vogue-worthiness” is dependent on ethnicity and size. Vogue, like much of the fashion industry, has been criticized for a long-standing lack of diversity and a reliance on white, willowy women to sell magazines. Is the West/Kardashian cover — a month after Rihanna graced the cover — at all an acknowledgment that the pale waif is an outdated standard of beauty? One should hope.

    But if the point was in part to diversify, why not look to more obvious choices, such as Kerry Washington, Lupita Neyong’o and Mindy Kaling, who haven’t yet been Vogue cover models. Washington has even been the center of media campaigns for a cover.

    West, too, has waged a cover campaign of sorts and that may be the ultimate point of contention for Vogue loyalists. Like a vice presidential bid, one does not openly lobby for a major cover. Even more gauche, allowing your significant other to do it for you.

    West has admittedly pushed Kardashian into the world of high fashion – cleaning out her closet, introducing her to his stylists and friend Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, and ensuring her presence at the 2013 Met Gala. He has also been on a public campaign for the fashion industry to take her more seriously, calling her the “the most intriguing woman right now.”

    West followed that statement, which he made on the show On Air With Ryan Seacrest, by saying “She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday … and collectively we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [President] Obama is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”

    Whether or not Wintour caved to West’s pressure, which she states she did not in the April editor’s letter, is beside the point. Kardashian has relied on West and their collective money-making prowess to advance her status in the fashion ranks, a cardinal sin of the industry.

    The topic is apropos in the wake of L’Wren Scott’s death last week. As critic Robin Givhan noted, one of Seventh Avenue’s most enduring prejudices is celebrity, and Scott was afflicted with the curse of reflected glory for being Mick Jagger’s girlfriend.

    That hindrance seemed to make Scott work even harder in her career. She ultimately produced desirable clothing and dressed some of Hollywood’s most prominent women, earning her spot as a respected designer and stylist.

    For a woman to rest on her fiance’s ambition and connections, and still make it to one of the most coveted spots in pop culture is the insult to injury for those who expect more from the ‘fashion Bible.’

People have other obligations and things they are beholden to that might not permit them being able to come. Even if she didn’t get to see Bieber for her family to come out about it like he is in the wrong for it to me shows that they are focusing on the wrong thing at the moment.
