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.
