Miley Cyrus: I Am a Total Feminist!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Miley Cyrus doesn't understand the criticism.

Yes, she Twerks. And, sure, she's often nearly naked. But that doesn't mean the singer isn't a big-time feminist.

Quite the opposite, Miley argues in a new interview with BBC's "Newsbeat."

“I feel like I’m one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women to not be scared of anything," Cyrus says in the Q&A.

The artist came under a bit of fire this week from Jennifer Lawrence, who call out Miley directly... but did say it's "disgusting" that sex sells as well as it does for young celebrities.

But Miley disagrees.

“Guys get to show their titties on the beach, why can’t we?” she asks. “I don’t understand the double standard."

Yeah! Seriously! Women should be free to be as topless as they want to be at all times.

Are you listening, Kate Upton?

What do YOU think? Is Miley Cyrus a feminist?

Miley Cyrus referring to herself as a feminist is offensive to true feminists everywhere. She's doing nothing but keeping women under the same sterotypes that men have tried to keep us in forever. Put your damned clothes back. Taking them off doesn't require strength. Teaching girls to value their minds, their education, to be confident, and have strong values -- that's what a good role model does. Clearly, she's NOT.

You can be a feminist and set an example for women to be who they are but do it in a classy manner, not half naked and trashy. I know she is targeting a more adult audience now but really clean up your act little girl.

I dont think she can spell it much less embody the term. Waving your pussy around to the delight of old men record executives to put money in their pockets is more of a Ho and Pimp situation. a Ho can take control of her body and decisions on her own...but when you have one or several pimps..you are actually the opposite of a feminist...she does nothing on her own. every move is precisely calculated. she doesnt write a stitch of music either. Chinese Crested puppy...not a cute one....one of the Ugliest Dog entries that cant.control the fact that their tounge hangs out. She is a gutter swamp slut trash ball. no offense to nice gutter swamp sluts.

She is the surprise shit nugget that shoots out when you fart on the toilet.

You are a little pig and a poor excuse of a feminist. Go to college and get a women's studies degree and learn what the word may actually mean. Now make sure you stick your tongue out.......

Being a feminist is not about being a sexed up piece of I don't know what. It's about being respectful of ones self & proving that women have what it takes. By acting the way she's acting she just proves that women are there for mens pleasure & don't have skills except for when it comes to sex. It's not about being a double standard. It's about about common decency & self respect. Even in places where people don't have normal clothing, women cover there breasts. A woman's breasts are a precious & important part of any human beings life (breastfeeding) why would you want that out & about in the public eye, not protected?
