As she goes around the globe, donning skimpy clothing and trying way too hard to prove she's no longer an innocent Disney drone, Miley Cyrus has come under fire for... well, donning skimpy clothing and trying way too had to prove she's no longer an innocent Disney drone.
But, in an interview with the BBC this week, Miley sent a message to critics that feel this way: suck it!
"They can think what they want,” she said. “Those are people who are just close-minded and don’t understand art."
As for the criticism she's received over the last couple years in general, Cyrus said:
“Everyone goes through a bad point in their life and makes bad choices. But they just haven’t been published and it hasn’t been documented on the Internet. You can see how that would drive people crazy. I would like to see you at 21 and video that and put that out there for people to comment on.”
As well-known Miley haters (to the maker of this video: you rule!), THG must respond with a few points:
- Miley, you are 17. Not 21. That's a huge difference. Get back to us when you can vote, purchase tobacco, fight in a war, graduate from college and buy alcohol legally.
- If what you are doing is "art," then Britney Spears is Picasso. You're wearing tight leather outfits and singing about how hot you are and how every guy out there gives you "mad attention." Get over yourself. You're a cliched pop singer.
- It doesn't matter what the average teenager would do, if his/her bad decisions were "published" or not. You're not average. You're a multi-millionaire, a global icon. Your defense for past actions boils down to: "Oh yeah? Well, everyone else does that, too!" That's a lame cop-out for anyone to hide behind, let alone someone who is supposed to act in a responsible manner because she's a role model to girls around the world... whether she chooses (or deserves) to be or not.
