In the midst of Mileygate (also known as the controversial photos that Perez Hilton posted where it looked like Miley Cyrus wasn’t wearing underwear “ but she was), the teen star has come out and declared herself non-slutty, but also making it quite clear that nobody can or will tell her what to wear or sing about. (But just for the record, a 17-year-old is still a minor though, right?)
Going on to say that she’s trying to make a point with [her] record and look consistent in the way [her] record sounds and that way that [she] dresses, young Cyrus continued her slightly questionable declarations:
I’m not trying to be ˜slutty,’ said Cyrus in a recent interview. I’m not trying to be like, go to the club and get a bunch of guys … What I’m trying to do is to make a point with my record and look consistent, in the way my record sounds and the way I dress.
I’m really comfortable with my body, I work really hard to be fit and to know that I can wear whatever makes me most comfortable. I feel more comfortable dressing with a little less, which is just how I’ve always been.
Sure, Miley’s free to dress and act however she likes “ that’s the beauty of free will. But despite her maturity or what she may be ready for, to define herself by being scantily clad or oozing sex appeal is doing herself a disservice. Here’s hoping she knows she knows she’s worth more than a pair of short-shorts.
