She’s 17 now — and sick of people telling her what to do!

In a revealing new interview, Miley Cyrus lashes out at parents and the people who watch her every move with a critical eye. She says she’s tired of people judging her, and trying to turn her into something she’s not. “My job first is to entertain and do what I love,” she tells Parade. “If you don’t like it, then change the channel.”

“I’m not forcing you to watch me,” she says. “I’m not forcing you to talk about me. I would do that pole dance a thousand times again, because it was right for the song and that performance. But, dude, if you think dancing on top of an ice-cream cart with a pole is bad, then go check what 90% of the high schoolers are really up to. It’s funny. I don’t know if a lot of parents remember what they were like as kids.”

But Miley doesn’t have a problem with ALL parents. She says her own, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus, are a pillar of support.

“I think the world of my mom and dad,” she says. “They are the best. I am not afraid to tell them anything. Sometimes they’ll say, ‘Miley, we’re not completely stoked about your decisions,’ but at least they’re not worried at 3 in the morning, wondering where I am. It’s all about communication. I don’t care what stories are written about me or what other parents think, because I know how close I am with my parents.”
