(EXCLUSIVE) Three Young Celeb Train Wrecks Or Not?

Today's easy access to instant fame while in many ways can be a great thing it can also flip and become the proverbial "train wreck" nightmare for celebrities’ especially young celebs whose fame has come too fast or inheritance of celebrity.  Whatever the combination, with each instant of young celebrity we can't help but recount the soap operaish series of Lindsey Lohan and wonder who will be next?  Below are three baby celebs that came up on the Black American Opinion (BAO) radar.
Miley Cyrus, a.k.a. Hannah Montana 

Little Ms. Mouthy Miley, suffers from a chronic case of diarrhea of the month, an inflated ego that's in need of a serious anchor to bring her back to earth if she in fact ever in her young life experienced gravity.  Granted she is a talented young woman but has gone unchecked for far too long.  Ok you are rich Hannah but damn, don’t get it confused “to whom much is given much is require” and the least you can do is be nice.  In Nashville and other cities she is becoming a real pain in the ass for service and waiter staffers everywhere.  She’s breaking her dad Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Achy Breaky Heart”.
Bobbi Kristina Brown

Poor lil girl, genetics are a strong force with this one.  The heiress to what will be left of her celebrity parent's Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's cracked out throne she really didn't stand much of a chance.  Growing up in the "green rooms" of her parents she has seen a lot for her age and now it appears that she is starting to take up some of their drug hobbies according to numerous reports.  The sense is that Bobbi Kristina is just trying to find her own way and come out of the shadows of larger than life character celeb parents.  Hope she finds a better way to do it other than drugs and sex tapes.

Justin Bieber

Justin is probably the longer shot of the three for becoming a cliché train wreck but the concern for him has to do more with the microwave success and randomness of it all.  His saving grace would appear to be that his mother is very involved with his day to day and he has a great mentor in R&B artist, producer Usher who can relate well due to his own meteoric success at a young age.  Although Justin's seems to have good people within his circle to keep him grounded some might say he is being given a long leash of freedom that can be dangerous for young men of means and opportunities and Justin certainly has plenty.
