Miley Cyrus Labels Bong Smoking a "Bad Decision"

by at . Comments

For the first time since she was caught smoking salvia in December, Miley Cyrus has spoken out about the incident.

Asked why such an uproar resulted from an action in which other teenagers also take part, the 18-year old seemed to actually understand her place in society for a change:

"They're not Miley Cyrus," she said. "They're not role models. So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for."

While Miley didn't comment on new boyfriend Josh Bowman, with whom she was recently photographed, the magazine did touch on another awkward topic: the divorce of Cyrus' parents.

"Anyone is going to be upset when there are troubles in their family," she said. "But I have a lot of hope in our family and no matter what happens, we're gonna stay strong."

Forget the attempt at smoldering photos above (please put on a bra, Miles), these answers show a mature side to Miley unlike any we've seen before.


@Tammi: Well of course you agree with them, silly! It's because all of you are either wearing your chastity belts way too tight or have been castrated. That's why you all hate the idea of female sexuality and automatically assume that a young woman is a whore if she does something sexual or shows skin. Gosh, if you saw what Lady Gaga and other stars are up to you'd probably have a heart attack. I pity you.


I'm glad to see she can own up to her mistakes. I think she's just at that phase in her life where she's trying to hard to be an adult & is just realizing what being an adult actually is. Being 18 does NOT make you an adult, growing up does. I didn't feel like a real grown-up til I was about 20, but I knew I was maturing steadily since I was 12. A lot of teens seem to think they are so grown up but they obviously aren't, miley is still learning herself.


Fans? What fans? Some girls actually look up to this celeb? Puhleeze. Some people need to realize who their true role models really are.


I think shes trying to get life on track


I think what people need to undertand is that Yes, she's a role model; but ultimately, the parents should be role models for their own children. Teach them what they need to know, raise them the best you can, and teach them not to be followers, and hopefully, stuff like this wont stray them.
I'm not saying I support Miley's decision to do salvia, but at the same time, I think its ridiculous how people are freaking out about it. Its a legal drug. When she turns 21 and starts drinking, like almost everyone else in the world, will you complain about that as well?
Call me crazy, stupid, whatever; but I honestly don't think Miley has anything to feel bad or sorry about. She did nothing wrong, according to the law.
She's a teenager trying to find herself, just like everyone has been at some point. Everyone goes a different way trying to find out who they are. I'm not supporting what she did, necessarily (because I think drugs are stupid and a waste of time), but cut her some slack.


To Tammi: welcome to the conversation!


Hahhahaha righttt....This just makes me laughh. @anne I agree. @zippy HELL YEAA. DUHH. @butterfly I agree with that too. @lisa I agree with that TOO.


For all of the people complaining about the way Miley Cyrus is dressed in these photos, you really need to give it up. She's not a little girl anymore. She's 18, an ADULT, and no longer on Disney Channel anymore. It's not like she's posing naked. These are the same types of pictures most other women in the entertainment industry take- Lady Gaga, Lea Michelle, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox, Rihana, Katy Perry, and many more. If they can do it then Miley Cyrus can do it too. Get over it. @Zippy: So what if she is? Most adults are having sex. Sexuality isn't wrong. It's her right as a human being and an adult. It's not like she's too young to be sexual.


Shes a whore


Of course she is Zippy!! DUH!!!
