Not only does Taylor Swift NOT want to be a bad girl, now she also appears to get a new dig in at Miley Cyrus, who appears to embrace her naughty side.
Being a role model for young women is important to Taylor Swift, 21. Very important!
She told Katie Couric in a recent 60 Minutes interview that, “I definitely think about a million people when I’m getting dressed in the morning and that’s just part of my life now,” Taylor said. “I think it’s my responsibility to know it and be conscious of it.”
She also made a point in the 60 Minutes interview of saying she felt a responsibility to help raise the next generation.
Now in a new interview with Katie Couric at the Billboard Women of the Year Awards on Friday, December 2, she stressed to Katie and the audience that she’s “not repressing this burning desire to be drunk right now” and “doesn’t feel like getting any tattoos.”
She also said Faith Hill was an inspiration to her since Faith took being a role model seriously. “For me, when Faith Hill performed on an awards show, everything mattered — 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.”
So was this all a dig at Miley who has famously said she doesn’t want to be a role model and wants to be a “normal” teenager?
Miley, now 19, told Harper’s Bazaar magazine that she wants people to stop giving her a hard time for wearing skimpy outfits because she’s “not a role model.”
“My job isn’t to tell your kids how to act or how not to act because I’m still figuring that out myself,” she told the magazine. “To take that away from me is a bit selfish. Your kids are going to make mistakes whether I do or not.”
Clearly Taylor has a VERY different point of view than Miley and she isn’t shy about expressing it. Miley meanwhile was criticized widely last week for calling herself a “stoner” and saying she smoked “way too much f***ing weed” in a recent video taped at her 19th birthday party.
Maybe Miley will feel differently in two years when she’s 21 like Taylor.
In the meantime, do you think Taylor is directing her comments at Miley? And if so, is she being too hard on her?
