In a recent interview with the New York Times, Miley Cyrus explained that her wild antics over the past year were just a result of playing a character. Cyrus’ real persona is hidden from the public, instead exposing a performer that is, above all else, there to entertain. In other words, her VMA’s performance doesn’t mirror her real life. “I went from people just thinking I was, like, a baby to people thinking I’m this, like, sex freak that really just pops molly and does lines all day,” said Cyrus. “It’s like, ‘Has anyone ever heard of rock ’n’ roll?’ There’s a sex scene in pretty much every single movie, and they go, ‘Well, that’s a character.’ Well, that’s a character. I don’t really dress as a teddy bear and, like, twerk on Robin Thicke, you know?" Ironically, the star first rose to fame in the Disney Channel show Hannah Montana, in which she played a girl balancing dual identities –one half normal teen, one half pop star. Cyrus said that Disney stars aren’t the only ones who have to be concerned with their image. “I’ll get someone to, like, flash me, and they’ll be, like, “You have to delete it!” I had to do that when I was 14 or 15, but even then I didn’t care,” said Cyrus. “Like, if someone was videoing me ripping a bong, I didn’t care, so it’s just funny to me. I’m like: “Dude, you’re 30. Like, why can’t someone see a picture of your [breasts]?” The pop star has also been using her wild child image to help other celebrities break away from their cookie-cutter images, such as rising diva Ariana Grande. “She’s trying. I see her wearing the shorter things. She comes in, and she goes, “This made me feel like you.” And I’m like, “That was like my sixth grade prom dress.” She’s, I think, still on Nickelodeon. She has people that she has to kind of respect,” said Cyrus. While the former Disney star is no longer contained by contracts and strict rules, there are some places where she draws the line. “There was a thing that Kurt Cobain said, something like, ‘There’s a special place in hell for people that glamorize drugs,’ and I never want to be that person that’s, like, talking to 16- and 17-year-olds and being like, ‘Smoke weed.’ I’ve got a little sister. I don’t want her to smoke weed, and it’s not because I think weed is bad, but…. she’ll make the choice,” said Cyrus. Cyrus’ latest media sensation stems from the release of her latest single “Adore You” from her latest album, Bangerz. Is Cyrus an inappropriate teen idol or a celebrity freedom fighter? You decide.
