Miley couldn’t be less bothered by the controversial remarks about her sensational rise to the top, insisting in a new interview that she — and the dance move she popularized — “represent women in a cool way.” Do you agree?
Miley Cyrus totally thumbed her nose at the haters on Nov. 12 when she shared her thoughts on her current level of fame and success in a candid interview with Capital FM on Nov. 12. Sounds like twerking is here to stay!
Miley Cyrus Defends Her Sexy Persona
Miley Cyrus‘s, 20, recent rise to ultra-fame from her Hannah Montana days has turned heads endlessly. She has been the talk of the town since her infamous, controversial VMA performance, and has only blown up more with the help of off-the-wall music videos and increasingly suggestive outfits!
“I just think for me, it’s kind of been …really since the VMAs was the time that I really got to break out and do really what I wanted to do,” Miley said in the interview.
And even though Miley’s new persona has drawn a considerable amount of critics, she thinks she’s actually been a positive role model for her gender.
“I think I’m representing women in a cool way, because people aren’t used to girls that are just like, ‘I genuinely don’t care what people think.’ And that’s what guys have always gotten to be, and especially in like a rock industry or whatever,” she told Capital FM.
Miley reveals that she loves what she does, because she gets to be spontaneous and yes — shocking.
“I’m someone that loves pop music and I love making mainstream music and I love what I do because I get to have this element of fun and surprise, which people normally don’t get to do. I get to wear whatever I want and be whatever I want.”
Sounds like Miley isn’t having too much trouble sleeping at night!
Jennifer Lawrence Disses Miley Cyrus
Speaking of critics, on Nov. 11 during the Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere in London, Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence, 23, was asked about her thoughts on Miley’s vulgar behavior as of late, and the sexualization of young women in the media.
“It is a part of the entertainment industry that sells. Sex sells, and for some disgusting reason, young sex sells even more,” she told BBC’s Newsnight.
Ouch! Though Miley’s name wasn’t mentioned directly, Jennifer’s answer wasn’t exactly subtle. We probably won’t be seeing any twerking or outlandish behavior from Jen anytime soon!
So, HollywoodLifers, what do YOU think? Does Miley recent behavior “represent women in a cool way?” Sound off below!
