Miley has gotten serious heat for her scantily clad outfits and outrageous behavior. But she says she’s not trying to make a ‘statement’!

Miley Cyrus isn’t making excuses anymore! The 18-year-old appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show April 13 to perform with rock legend Joan Jett. When asked by Oprah if it’s been hard to stray from her picture-perfect Disney image, Miley didn’t hold back!

“It’s not about how far I can push things so people will believe I’m not Hannah Montana anymore,” Miley says. “You just make the music that you love and because I’m growing up, you know, so does my music. It’s not about trying to make a statement about growing up. You know … you just do.”

Evidently making out with girls on stage, and smoking salvia was just Miley coming into her own.

Do you believe Miley when she says her recent behavior wasn’t for shock value?
