Miley Cyrus to Sexist Clothing Critics: Thank You!

by at . Comments

Miley Cyrus isn't one to dress conservatively, and, for that, the singer isn't about to apologize. Quite the opposite, in fact.

During an interview on Lifetime's The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet," when asked about her the reception she's received in the past for provocative attire, Miley said:

"I take it as a compliment. Thank you for thinking I'm sexy!"

Cyrus adds that she was shocked by the backlash when she started donning skimpier outfits, highlighted by outrage over a Vanity Fair photo shoot in 2008.

"People are so scared of seeing a woman being like, 'This is who I am and you're not going to change it,'" she said.

That attitude also led to the release of "Can't Be Tamed" and its accompanying, R-rated music video.

"Even just the title of that, for a woman to say she can't be tamed... for a woman in the world with my face saying 'I can't be tamed' when that's really all people wanted to do, I think proves how sexist people still really are," she believes.

That's certainly an interesting take. Miley, meanwhile, has found herself the talk of the gossip world again this week: Do you think she's too thin?

I hate how people especially these blogs love to tackle Miley about how she dresses and her life. C'mon! She is no longer 14 years old! You all love to say mean things about these stars but as soon as they die you are the first to say your condolences. Makes me sick.

@Jinko if her 15 minutes were up they would have been up almost 7 years ago, Miley is here to stay because she isn't like your ordinary celeb that does what she is told she has a mind of her own and that's what people love about her don't like it, don't comment.

I find this girl really irritating. the way she talks and behaves ugh it’s like she sees herself as a 30 something when you can clearly see she’s an immature brat. I’d like to see this talentless cunt off the spotlight.

@Agatha: Miley Cyrus isn't really like Lindsay Lohan. She's just breaking out of her squeaky clean image and being her real self. If anything she's becoming more like your average celebrity, not Lindsey.
It's true that she's shown a lot of skin, danced suggestively, and even had a little experimentation with drugs, but plenty of celebrities have managed to do those things without becoming Lindsey-style trainwrecks. Jennifer Anniston, Megan Fox, Pink, Vanessa Hudgens, and Cameron Diaz are just a few who come to mind. Lindsey Lohan is just one of those severe cases of what can go wrong.

Aren't her 15 minutes up? Does anyone care what she has to say? I think not.

@:): Just because a female doesn't conform to your views about clothing and dancing doesn't mean she's trash or a whore. A person who can't even spell the words 'you're' (it's not your) and 'compliment' (it's not 'complament') has no room to call names and lecture others.
