Miley Cyrus on Justin Bieber: Give Him Time to Grow Up!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Seemingly overnight, Hannah Montana became the crotch-bearing twerk monster Miley Cyrus. Needless to say, she grew up fast. 

Still, the pop star is sympathetic to young celebs who have taken a little longer to mature. (We're not sure many people would describe Miley as "mature," but that's a different story.)

Asked about the recent bad boy antics of her lookalike peer Justin Bieber on Australian television today, Miley vehemently defended the troubled singer and blamed the media for his downfall:

"I think people should have time to grow up and figure out who they are," said Miley. "I think people need to sit and think of the times in their life when they were not proud of who they were."

She went on to imply that Bieber's constant media exposure is the main cause of his current woes:

"Imagine if [that time in your life] was completely exploited and everyone had their opinions."

While she clearly wishes more people would keep their Bieber-based opinions to themselves, Miley concedes that it's a good thing that fans have a public forum in which to discuss their favorite stars.

Probably referring to public reactions to Bieber's racist videos, shot when he was still in his teens, Miley deftly avoided offering her opinion on Justin's "jokes" and said simply, "Social media is such a blessing. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion."

Smooth move, Miley. As for our opinion, we're beginning to think Miley is a more mature, savvy career woman than she lets on.
