Miley Cyrus on Changing Appearance, Attitude: It's Called Puberty!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Miley Cyrus is well aware of her recent changes.

She knows she looks and sounds different than the young teenager who struck in big on Hannah Montana, but she doesn't know why it's such a big deal.

“It’s called puberty," Miley tells E!'s Kelly Osbourne. "Everyone’s done it from the beginning of time. I’m just doing it [in the spotlight] so you’re zooming in on it and you’re fascinated by it."

We're not entirely sure if everyone is flipping the camera off and grabbing their crotch on camera, but we sort of get Miley's point: she's growing up.

Cyrus adds that people don't seem to comprehend she's a "real human being" and that she's intent on using her fame for good.

Case in point: those Miley Cyrus nude shirts that help from skin cancer awareness. Explains Cyrus:

“If I can just use where I am in my career and use myself as a pedestal to do good - even if it means getting naked, ’cause more people are gonna look at it."

We're not really sure Miley can play the "I'm just like everyone else card!" while also acknowledging she has a career that places her on a "pedestal," but hey. We're not gonna argue with charitable results.

Look for Miley's new album BANGERZ to be released on October 8.
