Miley Cyrus Defends "Innocent" Racy Photos

by at . Comments

Okay. Britney Spears, no pants, this isn't.

But some racy Miley Cyrus photos - featuring the singer frolicking on a hotel floor with a female friend and sharing a piece of candy - have been circulating around the web and causing plenty of controversy in recent days.

Where's the Party?

Before her sold-out Best of Both Worlds concert at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island (N.Y.), the 15-year-old pop sensation insists that the candid shots are innocent - though she is upset they got out in the first place.

"At first, I was really upset. It really sucks," said the Hannah Montana star, who at one point exclaimed, "Look at me getting all upset!"

Not that she plans to shrug off the scandal, or the fact that the photos were leaked.

"It's not something I'm going to let slide," Cyrus said. "I'm really upset about it, 'cause it was not even a big deal."

As for the blonde tonguing that piece of candy with her in the shots, Miley Cyrus calls her "a friend of mine that's a normal girl... That's one of my best friends. I have all these girls who I hang out with all the time."

Lucky.

While Cyrus says she's used to all the attention she gets as a celebrity, both good and bad - "This girl doesn't even have to deal with that, and it's so hard for her. She has to go to school and deal with this crap."

Concerning the racy Miley Cyrus photos themselves, the star says "It's two girls at a sleepover. If that's bad, then what is the world coming to?"

On a musical note, Cyrus also says that she's into her current tour for the fun of it - and once the fun goes away, so will she.

"What I decided before I came to L.A. and started working was the minute I didn't have fun was the minute I go home. I don't want to go home, and I don't want to not do what I do, because I love it, but this ... it's Satan attacking."
