While Perez Hilton is basking in the spotlight and milking his Miley Cyrus photo controversy for all its worth, the 17-year old singer at the center of this scandal is acting like the mature one.
(Man, we never thought we'd write that about Miley Cyrus.)
Instead of harping on that situation, Miley is focusing on her music: she appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last night, joked with the host about Twitter and then performed "Can't Be Tamed." Most amazingly, she did it while wearing pants!
From there, Cyrus woke up today and took to the stage with Bret Michaels.
First, though, she continued to defend her racy new image, saying on Good Morning America:
"You have to be who you are to the full. There's nothing that I'm holding back. And that's what I want to give to my girl fans. Just be who you are."
Ah, there's the pompous Miley Cyrus we know and love... to mock: sounding all high and mighty about her music when, in reality, she's just another recycled pop singer that wears skimpy clothing to prove how "edgy" she is.
Moreover, and we truly mean this with no predisposed bias or opinion of the singer, but just as people with two working ears: Miley sounds HORRIBLE in the following duet:
