Miley Cyrus might be bad at singing, but she's good at listening.
And the young star is tired of all the controversy surrounding her new image. She told The Associated Press today:
"I'm not trying to be slutty. I'm not trying to be, like, go to the club and get a bunch of guys. What I'm trying to do is make a point with my record and look consistent, in the way my record sounds and the way I dress."
Okay... and that point would be what, exactly? In "Can't Be Tamed," Miley sings that she's "hot like that" and "every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention."
As critical as THG is of Cyrus, we actually never use words such as "slut," "skank," "whore" or other nouns applied to her across the Web. But what point is she trying to make with those lyrics and these outfits?
The quote above may sound intelligent to some, but it doesn't actually say anything.
Cyrus continued to defend her provocative behavior and attire, adding:
"I'm really comfortable with my body, I work really hard to be fit and to know that I can wear whatever makes me most comfortable.
"I feel more comfortable dressing with a little less, which is just how I've always been... Now I'm able to do that a little more freely and, also, I've just grown up to be this way too. It's not like this was me five years ago. It's me now, presently."
In conclusion, Miley says she is not trying to use sex to sell albums. That's not her "schtick."
"I want people to buy my record because of my music."
If that's the case, Miles, put on some pants, grab a guitar and just sing. You're clearly courting this controversy, so don't whine about. Prove to us you're a serious artist and not a disappointing hack.
