Miley Cyrus: I'm Not Racist!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Miley Cyrus took some time away from kissing fellow women - first Katy Perry and then Brooke Candy - this week to defend her controversial concert actions in an interview with Ronan Farrow.

Because she spends so much time on stage with little people and African-American backup dancers, the singer has come under fire during the opening week of her Bangerz tour.

"It's really funny how serious people take it," she told Farrow on MSNBC. "And they're like, you're racist. And I'm like, 'Really?'

"They're just like dancing, doing these cute moves and they're awesome dancers like just on their own. It's not me telling them how to be."

What about assertions that Miley exploits little people?

"We're making them feel sexual and beautiful," she explained, adding of one fellow dancer in particular: "We're all about lifting her up and making her feel so sexy all the time, and having her dance -- she's actually an awesome dancer."

A former backup dancer, Hollis Jane, spoke out last year about feeling degraded while wearing a bear costume during Miley's 2013 VMAs performance. 

But Cyrus shrugs it all off.

She distracts herself by watching the movie Days of Thunder... a lot.

"I want to be Nicole Kidman so bad," she says. "I'm kind of obsessed and kind of want to -- I don't know if I want to be Nicole Kidman or if I want to be Tom Cruise, because his outfits are better."
