Miley Cyrus gave an inspiring performance at an inspiring event last night.

The singer took to the stage at CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute, a campaign that honors individuals who go to impressive lengths to serve others. She presented one honoree with an award and then sang a rendition of her hit, "The Climb." Watch now:

Who says Miley Cyrus is not a role model? Oh, right. Miley Cyrus herself. But should she act as one? Compare her view to that or Taylor Swift and vote NOW!

Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus have very different sounds (country vs. pop); different looks (blonde vs. brunette); and different philosophies on where they stand as celebrities.

Cyrus - who most recently came under fire for making a joke about marijuana - has made it clear that she just wants to be a typical teenager whose occupation happens to make her rich and famous.

“My job isn’t to tell your kids how to act or how not to act because I’m still figuring that out myself,” Miley told Harper’s Bazaar a few months ago. “To take that away from me is a bit selfish. Your kids are going to make mistakes whether I do or not.”

Swift, conversely, is happy to embrace her status as a role model. She understands it comes with the territory.

At the Billboard Women of the Year Awards on Friday, Taylor referenced Faith Hill in an interview with Katie Couric, saying:

“For me, when Faith Hill performed on an awards show, everything mattered... everything she said said, did, wore I tried to copy it. That’s what little girls do, so there is a big responsibility and I take it very seriously.”

Two artists. Two contrasting points of view. On whose side do you fall? Do you believe Taylor and Miley are role models and should act as such?

Miley Cyrus - who is NOT a pothead, people! - has shown musical support for Occupy Wall Street by posting a video (below) that praises the protestors for standing up for a cause in which they believe.

But this gesture isn't enough for Priscilla Grim.

The co-editor of "The Occupied Wall Street Journal," one of the cause's most public advocates, tells TMZ that she'd love to see Cyrus actually attend one of the movement's public events.

"I double dog dare [her] to fight on the front line of economic civil rights at LA City Hall," says Grim, adding: "Revolutionaries occupy, Ms. Cyrus."

Sheesh, Mr. Grim. At least Miley has come out and said something about the plight of the 99 percent. She and Third Eye Blind - a band that apparently still exists - have taken more steps than most celebrities in this regard. Give the girl a break.

Miley Cyrus turned 19 a few days ago, and has not stopped making news since.

First, the actress posted a video in support of Occupy Wall Street. Then, she found herself embroiled in a pot smoking controversy. Now, the young superstar is standing up for gay rights.

Miley is the latest celebrity - countless others include Michael Emerson, Kim Kardashian, Cindy McCain; folks from every industry, as you can tell - to take part in the NOH8 campaign, created by Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley in protest of California's Proposition 8, which makes it illegal for same-sex couples to wed.

"Thank you @MileyCyrus for taking a stand & supporting the @NOH8Campaign!," Bouska Tweeted following the shoot, a photo from which (above) he posted on his Facebook page.

Expect the completed campaign poster to hit the Internet any day now.

Miley Cyrus is not a pothead.

A rep for this singer/actress would like to make that clear, following a video that surfaced over the weekend - courtesy of Miley's 19th birthday party - in which Cyrus thanks her friends for presenting her with a Bob Marley cake and says:

"You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much f-cking weed!"

Kelly Osbourne, who is featured in the clip above, has already Tweeted a defense of her friend, writing:

“The cake was also A JOKE! It makes me sick that Miley Cyrus’ so called ‘friends’ would sell her out and lead people 2 believe she is someone that she is not!"

Now, the star's rep has issued a similar statement, reiterating that the entire incident was in jest.

“The cake was a joke and Miley was being sarcastic,” this rep told Access Hollywood. “It is being completely taken out of context.”

Do you believe these arguments? Or does it not matter either way? Answer below: Do you care if Miley Cyrus smokes pot?

Weed the lips of Miley Cyrus: this singer really enjoys smoking pot.

Miley Cyrus at Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards

At her 19th birthday party last week, Miley was presented with a Bob Marley cake and told the crowd: "You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much f-cking weed!"

Watch the video of the confession, obtained by The Daily, below:

Kelly Osbourne, who was on stage with her pal, then grabbed the mic and - referring to THIS VIDEO from last year - joked with Cyrus: "I thought salvia was your problem!"

Meanwhile, the night of her birthday, Miley made news for another video: she posted a tribute to those involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement.

No word yet from Miley's camp regarding the words about weed, but Osbourne has taken to her Twitter posted this less-than-convincing defense: "u guys if @MileyCyrus is not recording/filming/touring she is works everyday how could she possible do all that if she was a stoner! #think."

Miley Cyrus turned 19 yesterday, and celebrated the occasion by taking on a very adult cause.

Two weeks after taking on critics who mocked her weight gain, the singer/actress has placed herself in the middle of Occupy Wall Street - the global protests in which the self-proclaimed 99%, who feel as if the rules favor the rich, have tried to make their voices known - by releasing a new video.

The following three-minute clip went viral last night, as Miley's "Liberty Walk" is played over shots from the movement, all preceded by the words: This is dedicated to the thousands of people who are standing up for what they believe in.

Miley is not the first celebrity to get involved in this cause. Jay Z got in trouble this month for releasing shirts that urged protestors to "Occupy All Streets."

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MILEY'S STATEMENT?

Miley Cyrus turns 19 years old today, marking the occasion in the same way she's spent the past few months: By remaining relatively quiet.

The singer/actress has not been in the news much lately, with the exception of a recent Tweet that called out her body image critics. But Miley's boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, is making far more headlines than his gal pal these days, thanks to his upcoming role in The Hunger Games (watch the awesome trailer NOW).

Cyrus seems content to stay away from social networks, let Liam have the spotlight and just focus on her movie career. It's very mature of her. It's also rather boring from a celebrity gossip site's point of view.

Kelly Osbourne, however, says she's got "all sorts of madness and craziness" planned for her friend's 19th birthday. So maybe we'll soon have some scandalous action to write about after all! In the meantime, send in your best wishes to the birthday girl now and enjoy the following montage in her honor...

Liam Hemsworth is about to make it big. Really big. And not just as the boyfriend of Miley Cyrus, but as one of the stars of The Hunger Games, the blockbuster trilogy that kicks off in March.

For now, though, the actor is still mostly known for the famous girl on his arm, which was the main topic of conversation between Hemsworth and Who Magazine this month. That magazine has named Liam one of the Sexiest People of 2011.

Liam Hemsworth in Who Magazine

"There is this place in Nashville called Steak and Shake, which is pretty much the best food, ever," he tells the magazine. "That is our secret, sexy place to go... When I look over at her when she's biting into a steak sandwich and there is some steak sauce dripping down her chin, there is nothing sexier than that."

So that's what Hemsworth likes about Cyrus. What does she find attractive about Liam?

"I'm still trying to figure it out," he laughed. "I'm kind of a goof."
