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?

@ Hollywood---YOU SAID @Lauren. @Lauren's as twisted as a fish tank full of snakes. And mentally challenged as well if she can come on THIS site and not see who is sling-s**t and who is slinging hate.

What a joke.


@Dee... no worries. Happy to help the developmentally disabled anytime.


Lauren: Really glad that you defined your response as a diatribe. Thank you.


@Dee... frankly, I am not surprised. You are about as self-obsessed as Cyrus.


@Lauren: Interesting comment. Wish I knew what you were commenting about. It appears that you don't either.


I don't know who I feel more sorry for: the girl who ignores society's standards of 'acceptable' vs. 'unacceptable' sexuality for a teenage girl and then gets the scarlet letter treatment for it, or the one who conforms to society's standards for teenage girls and gets held on a pedestal, expected to be perfect all the time.


@Dee... Oh for G--'s sake drop it. The article is written from HH's opinion. You were given the option to vote as to whether you agreed with the opinion or not. So vote no. Stop making this all about you.
