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 agree with her, but I wish you had included the other part of the interview, where she talks about how early in her career she was just being who others wanted to her to be instead of who she wanted to be. How she started to decide to be who she wanted to be instead.
