Miley Cyrus: I Empower Women!

by at . Comments

Note to Miley Cyrus: if you have to say you're a role model, you're probably not a role model.

In a new interview with MTV News, Cyrus says she empowers young women - or at least tries to. Referring to new songs such as "Can't Be Tamed" and "Liberty Walk," the 17-year who hates wearing pants says:

"It's just about freeing yourself from anything you think is holding you back. And I think that's really important, especially for girls, because so many people are told, 'No, you can't do something,' or, 'You need to be this because Mom and Dad say that, teachers say this.'"

Yes, Miles, sometimes mom, dad, teachers and grown-ups with actual life experiences know better than their 15-year old daughters. Almost at all times, in fact.


Miley's truly profound, not remotely cliched advice for her young fans?

"Really think about what you want to do for the rest of your life. There's a short amount of time, when you think about it, and no day needs to go by wasted."

It's true. Why bother wasting that time by putting on clothing, right, Miley?

THG's feelings on Cyrus are quite well-known. So let's turn this over to our readers: Do you think Miley is an empowering figure for young girls?


Personally, I feel that Miley is a role model...just a really bad one. Little girls all over look up to her, so she's their role models. I don't really like Miley at all. She acts way too old for 17 and I feel she should try to hold on to her youth. Being young is fun! Save being old for when you're...oh I don't know, old? What I ask of all you who read this, don't always be blinded by your beliefs. Yeah, go ahead and believe whatever the hell you want! It's your right for heaven's sake. Just keep an open mind to others around you and their opinions. So some one doesn't think Miley is amazing, or that she is a slut. Who cares? She's just a random girl who happened to become famous. Leave it at that.


miley you are a slut i hate you


@AMERICANGIRL: If I were a parent, I'd respond with "I have no reason to respect a girl I don't know, the way I respect my daughter who, would be someone I know, and therefore would have earned it. Respect is EARNED not given, and even if I did give it out freely, I wouldn't respect a girl who can't even respect herself."


Nobody is perfect. but being a role model, and a generally good person, means you try your best to make good decisions. Sometimes the right decision is doing exactly what we don't want to and being able to still make that decision is what makes you a responsible, mature person. A better person.


haha she empowers women wow she is such a little brat and i thought she empowered sluts because she is one


a role model is someone who is true and doesnt pretend
see if u have a role model whos perfect its usually put on thats not a proper role model at least miley is herself


well, she didn't actually say she empowers woman..........but even so, she empowers hookers! NATIONWIDE!


miley, u don't empower woman............U EMPOWER HOOKERS!


@Ellen: Talk about judging by apearances! You said that any respectable girl doesn't dress like that. So if a girl decides to dress sexy or provocatively you think she's unworthy of your respect? You think you have the right to decide whether or not a person is respectable based on how they look to you? That is a very pompous, narrow-minded, superficial thing to say. It's a little sad that in the 21st century people still think that a persons moral standards are based on the lenghth of their clothes. REAL morals have nothing to do with the way you look. And if you're a 'christian' spouting this crap, then you're being a hypocrite and not even following your own religious beliefs. Isn't there a scripture in your bible that says something like stop judging or you'll be judged? Before you start talking so much shit about other people, make sure your own toilet seat is clean first.


I agree with Jess. In the text or video of the interview, Miley never says that she empowers women. The headline of this article is a deception. The text in the article that indicates she said that is also false. Typical Hiton Hater.
