Miley Cyrus admits to ‘dancing with Molly’ lyric as proof that ‘I’ve grown up’

Miley Cyrus

While Liam Hemsworth’s in San Diego for Comic-Con, Miley Cyrus has flown across the pond to London. I’ve noticed lately that Miley is very affectionate and is often photographed holding hands and getting touchy-feely with her friends. The only one that she’s not holding hands with is Liam Hemsworth, which yeah, let’s not go there today. Miley is shown here on a night out with Nicole Scherzinger (a judge on UK’s “X Factor”) at a venue known (quite appropriately) as The Box. While Miley’s own “box” might not be showing in these photos, it’s a close call for sure. Our photo agencies got some shots that reveal a massive, unflattering wedgie, and these shorts can’t possibly allow for comfortable sitting.

Although I have to admit to having a bit of crush on Miley’s assistant, Cheyne Thomas. Is he gay? Who knows, but the guy is seriously cute.

Meanwhile, Miley would like us all to know (via a crotch-grabbing, underboob-heavy Twitpic) that she “Ain’t worrrrrriieddd bout nothin but my my #bizzzznassss.” In addition, Miley has given an interview to the Daily Mail, and she reveals that — surprise! — she really was “dancing with Molly” in her “We Can’t Stop” song. This is a mildly interesting admission after Miley’s producer insisted she’d never sing about MDMA. Miley also says the video was even more explicit before censors had their way:

Her video was even more explicit: “No gyrating, no ———-, there was a lot less. They took out literally everything. I thought the video wasn’’t bad, then MTV in the UK sent, like, 18 notes asking for changes.”

Being a Disney star was so awful: “I wasn’t really worried about it because I feel that time was something that I had to do what everyone has to do — work at something that you don’t necessarily love to get to be able to do what you do love. I would say everyone has to start from the bottom, to get where they want to go and work on things they don’t really care about doing. So I had to do that for five years. I had to work on something that wasn’t really a passion for me just because I wanted to be able to get here, so when I was older I’d be able to just do what I want and not have to work for money.’”

On the censors: “Then I’ll give you an edit. I just think the world is so lame because you can shoot people in a movie and you can let people like Zimmerman off on trial but you can’t have someone going like this (she stimulates oral sex gesture), that is so dumb to me.”

She’s not worried about alienating her fans: “People need to also remember that Britney when she did Slave or anything it was just a different time so it was less real because Can’t Stop I wanted it to be kind of gritty, like everything is about Instagram, about things going viral and I wanted to celebrate that. But Britney or Madonna never played it safe, none of the best pop artists ever did. I feel like I live in a different world, I live in LA, I see everything.”

About that “Molly” reference: “It depends who’s doing what. If you’re aged ten it’s ‘Miley,’ if you know what I’m talking about then you know. I just wanted it to be played on the radio and they’ve already had to edit it so much.”

Her version of growing up: “I don’t think people have a hard time understanding that I’ve grown up. You can Google me and you know what I’m up to – you know what that lyric is saying.”

[From Daily Mail]

The main problem I have with Miley’s words is that her version of “grown up” means partying and taking drugs. Not necessarily pot but Molly (which she is now essentially admitting to doing) and coke (which is still alleged, but I believe it). To most people, growing up means holding down full-time work and possibly raising children as well. Yet Miley aims to glorify the 24/7, club-going lifestyle where she “don’t need nothing from nobody.” Also, I wish Miley had some awareness that not everyone’s idea of “start[ing] at the bottom” includes making millions of dollars on a Disney Channel show.

Here’s a few more outfits of Miley in London while looking slightly classier.

    Really….she sounds immature to me.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      Yep. I’m not shading on her energy, experimentation (sex, drugs, etc.), or music … but I just don’t understand why people don’t get how Liam Hemsworth might want to ‘let that go,’ for the moment or forever. I’m sure the sex is awesome, but they just don’t seem to be in the same place maturity-wise.

      In four or five years Miley and Liam will probably be a perfect match … but by then someone will have snatched Liam up, because ‘baby’ is a nice package. (somebody fan me quick! :) ).

      My fear is that someone, in the same place as Miley right now, might snatch ‘her’ up and she’ll tumble down the same rabbit hole so many beautiful, extremely talented young women travel (Lindsey, Amy Winehouse, etc.)

      • Tapioca says:

        I don’t think there’s any chance of her falling down the “extremely talented” rabbit hole!

        Into a storm drain after one too many slippery nipples, maybe…

      • irishserra says:

        @Tapioca: Bwahahahah!!

      • Lilly says:

        She and Liam arent together. I believe its one of those PR agreements but I dont doubt that Liam moved on a long time ago. John Stamos talks very openly about he and Rebecca Romjin pretended to be together for 6 months after they were done, so we KNOW these kind of deals happen

      • Hakura says:

        @Emma – the JP Lover – “…but by then someone will have snatched Liam up, because ‘baby’ is a nice package. (somebody fan me quick! :) ).

        I must be tired, at first I read that as ‘but by then someone will have snatched Liam up, because ‘baby’ has a nice package. (somebody fan me quick! :) ).’

        I was thinking “…You wouldn’t happen to have a reference picture to back up your claim, would you? >_>” xD!

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Hakuru, who wrote: “I must be tired, at first I read that as ‘but by then someone will have snatched Liam up, because ‘baby’ has a nice package. (somebody fan me quick! :) ).’

        I was thinking “…You wouldn’t happen to have a reference picture to back up your claim, would you? >_>” xD!”

        LOL!! You know, when I wrote that I though “hmmm, maybe I should say ‘complete package’ so they won’t think I’m talking about his … well, ‘fig leaf’ package. :)

        And in answer to your question: don’t I wish! ;)

      • only1shmoo says:

        I agree with you on the subject of Liam. I didn’t understand why people were trashing him so much; personally, i think he had the patience of a saint to put up with Miley’s juvenile & incessant “look at ME, I’ve outgrown my Disney pull-ups!!!” antics for so long. Sometimes good sex just aint’ enough!

    • Lilly says:

      She sounds like Rihanna, thats what she sounds like. That tweet is probably lifted from Rihannas old tweets. Same for the Instagram pic. And that single is clearly sound produced to sound like Riri.

      She needs to be told that part of maturity is actually having your own personality.

    • nemo says:

      this.
      …and uber stupid, too.

  2. paige says:

    she should go away until she really grows up (if she can)… this is getting really embarrassing
    AND IT IS GOING TO GET WORSE…
    she is so proud of her individuality-but she is a pathetic cliche…

  3. Jenna says:

    Right. Because doing ‘molly’ and some other rough drugs is a sign of maturity and growing up. Sure, Miley.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      +1
      She could not sound less mature and “grown up” if she tried.

    • sirsnarksalot says:

      I look forward to her future in the revolving door of rehab. Show biz sure has a crazy notion of what it is to grow up.

    • strawberryfields says:

      Another +1.

      IMO, maturity is thinking like an adult. It’s not doing whatever you want because you are technically recognized by law as an adult.

      Also, it is laughable that she considers her five years of work (which, per child labor regulations, means no more than 3 hours on a school day) as working from the very bottom to the top.

      • Bijlee says:

        Her wealth is absolutely wasted on her. All her contemporaries. It’s just wasted on them. So many opportunities, so many ways they can help others achieve their dreams, so many mouths they could feed. And they only do charity stuff for their image. They can’t go to college because in their mind they can go anytime. They don’t read because they have auto tuned music, sex, and drugs to do. Mindnumbing interviews and Pilates classes then yacht parties. WASTED. yes, it does infuriate me.

      • blaize says:

        Wow, awfully judgy. There’s a lot of truth to the tings you just said though. A LOT. Wealth is wasted on a lot of these ‘stars’, especially when you consider all of the people who are poor and have to go without important things while someone like Mary-Kate Olsen gets to spend 2 million on a purse. (That’s not an exaggeration by the way).

        But I don’t think it’s fair to assume that ALL famous people do good things just for attention. I believe that a lot of them do actually care, and I still don’t think there’s anything wrong with just wanting to have fun with the first few years of adulthood and delay college. After 12 years of having to answer to parents and teachers, you’re tired of authority figures, you want your freedom, and you want to do your own thing for a while. Those desires are not limited to famous people.

      • Bijlee says:

        @blaize yes I’m judgy when it comes to this. Extremely so. It is absolutely disappointing to me that there are people who just seem to waste their lives, their potential in such stupid nonsense like her. Her wealth IS WASTED ON HER. As it is justin bieber, rihanna, chris brown, the worst lindsay lohan, kim kardashian, and the thousands of other brainless popstars who autotune shitty music and package it like it’s the second coming of jesus. In my mind those were Miley’s contemporaries. THAT’S where my mind was. Nowhere did I say it’s wasted on every single celebrity. You love inferring this crap from people’s posts and picking on it as if it’s some amazing point that people have never considered before. It’s a case of semantics my love. You argue over this crap. I don’t understand why.

        I got it. I understand in your mind you seem to think you have the ability to care and empathize with these people in a way you believe I never can. Please stuff it.

        And here’s my problem. You assume there’s nothing wrong with taking those years to yourself and having fun….do you have ANY idea what kind of privilege that is????? ANY???? For someone of my socioeconomic class with a mother to take care of and younger siblings, college was something I HAD to do and am lucky I was able too. There was no way around it. Yes, I would love to frolic through sandy beaches and fields of flowers, club, and do drugs with a safety net of Hannah Montanna money to fall back on.

        TRUTH? I have none. Had I waited was there a possibility to go school?? Yes, but that’s an extremely small possibility that diminishes and diminishes the longer someone like me FROM MY POSITION waits. It takes two generations for people like me to fully escape poverty. Good thing I did because my mother’s health is failing now so I would have had to start taking care of my younger siblings and put my dreams of grad school completely on the back burner. So while it’s a choice you can live with, it’s not something everyone can do. So it’s really privileged. Also Miley has learned nothing. She is still dumb to a fascinating degree. So I will dumbshame her all I want.

        Yes, I’m judgy. I’M OKAY WITH THAT. It is wasted on useless people while I’m down here in the muck struggling to put gas in my car. Sleeping IN MY CAR to conserve the gas. Finding sofas, chairs, floors to sleep on! anywhere just to save on GAS and not have to pay rent. I’m seeing people struggle everyday to put food on their families tables trying to raise good, happy, healthy children. While Miley screams how she’s an adult to the world by ripping of her clothes and rubbing sh*t all over her body. So f**king edgy right???

        Sorry I’m so jaded my love. That’s what happens when you go through a life time of the mental, physical, and emotional burden of poverty just to watch buttf**ks like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Jbieber, Gomez, Chris brown and company go to pilates everyday and wear ugly designer clothing. Then shout to the world their uninformed political opinions, thoughts, and PR fed ideas like they are so much more enlightened then you.

        I often find myself agreeing with what you have to say. I really do. However, the way you say it, the way you act, the way you judge and pick at EVERY little thing makes it so hard for me to agree with you. Really really really hard. You jump down people’s throats at any small slight. You act as if you’re the only one capable of understanding what celebrities go through. When numerous people here have stated their support and have defended miley cyrus. I will say though you are definitely SO much more forgiving of this stupid PR, celebrity machine then I can ever be that’s the goddamn truth.

        End long ass rant. I’m in a particularly bad mood today.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        @Bijlee: That’s some real talk, right there. Thank you.

        It’s so ironic that Miley views the trite superficial drugs and over-hyped fake sexuality way of living her life as ‘growing up’. In reality, a regular drug and/or alcohol user seems to freeze at the mental age they begin using. Past that age, let’s say 14 for Miley, they don’t seem to mature at all, since maturity is making decisions toward positive goals, avoiding detrimental consequences, and taking appropriate actions during life.

      • blaize says:

        @Bijlee: My bad. I thought you were talking about all famous people.

        Yes, I know that not everybody has the privilege to spend ages 18-22 having fun. Maybe if I had different circumstances, I’d see it differently. And I’m really sorry about your mom, by the way. I know that if my mom’s health was failing having fun would be the last thing on my mind.

        I only defend people if they’re being criticized for doing things I’ve done or want to do, if the criticism is way too harsh for the ‘offense’ they’re ‘committing’ (especially if the harsh criticism veers into Problematic territory), or if it’s something I’m just sick of all people being attacked for in general. In this case, it’s the first.

      • Bijlee says:

        @blaize I’m sorry for the bitchiness of my post. The reality is I hate celebrity image and PR and their endless cycle of self promotion. I don’t like putting these people on a pedestal, which is why I come here because people are for the most part critical with a sense of reason. I try and remain fair in my criticisms, but my bias, my POV seeps through.

        It’s exhausting to me to see so much waste everywhere. Miley Cyrus can buy 2000 dollar skirts, shoes and not give it a second thought. While 2000 dollars could change someone’s life down on my end. That’s the way I see it and it’s the way I’m always going to see it. So yes, I will always be hypercritical of how celebs spend their money.

        Because while people say it’s their money let them spend it how they want, billionaires are rigging the system in their favor so they can make a couple hundred extra million that they don’t NEED, while people on my end have to pay a couple hundred extra that they absolutely DO need. I’m talking middle class folks too. I am jaded, pessimistic, and completely aware of my position in life and how I can get out of it. It’s a LONG, exhausting, and mentally taxing uphill battle for me and I am 100% judgy.

  4. Jennifer12 says:

    I know she’s young, but you just want to slap her for being so ungrateful. Poor baby, making loads of money at Disney and now she has no street credit. You wouldn’t anyway, spoiled rich chick. Growing up isn’t looking what you think is edgy and it isn’t getting stoned all the time. If this annoying twit wants to co-opt what she thinks is urban culture, please drop her skinny rich butt into the middle of an urban neighborhood and let’s see how fast she whines about how she suffered as a kid.

    • Andrew says:

      Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Disney is what made her famous. She shod be thankful for it because she NEVER would have made it this far without Disney. She has no talent and the only reason she is making headlines now is because she’s trying to go for shock value.

      • paige says:

        agree andrew – and let’s not forget LARRY RUDOLPH, that’s the main reason we’re talking about her…

        he has even convinced her it’s good that we all point out how unattractive and untalented she is- she just calls us haters and sez she’s just livin her life and doesn’t care what anyone thinks.. – she cares so much it hurts…
        if she ever grows up – and i have a feeling she will hit some hard times that force her to grow up a bit-she will feel embarassment for this time in her life….my antics and outfits i wore and what i said about it all were not on the newstands and i’m embarrassed thinking alone about it now…
        i just don’t want to ever see her tongue again-
        but i see it now in twenty years,
        on the cover of the rolling stone
        shot of a weathered miley with her
        tongue out
        on the comeback trail
        headline
        ‘she’s just being miley, after 4 divorces, several much publicized lesbian affaairs and drug addiction-rehab, and
        wait for it…
        IT”S STILL ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC’

    • blaize says:

      Imagine that you were a former teen Disney starlet. Because of that, you had to deal with the following things for several years:

      1. Being expected to abstain from sexual activity in order to be a ‘good role model’.

      2. Being told that you’re a slut, you’re garbage, you’re asking to be/deserve to be raped, and you’re garbage, (and a few other things that I don’t think I can repeat here) just because you DARED to unapologetically exercise your right to wear whatever you want and because you did some harmless dance moves.

      3. Being told that you shouldn’t complain when you receive such treatment, because you’re a rich Disney kid

      4. Everyone assuming that anything you do is because you used to be on Disney channel (because everybody who isn’t on Disney abstains from drugs, dresses conservatively, and is basically straight-laced, right?)

      Sure, you’d be glad that being on Disney made you rich and opened doors for you (as she basically says in her interview), but wouldn’t you also be at least a tiny bit annoyed about the other stuff?

      • Sera says:

        @blaize: I’m sorry, but where in the world did you get all of that from after reading the initial poster’s comment?

      • blaize says:

        @Sera: The other comment was basically saying how could Miley have anything bad to say about Disney, when they basically made her rich and famous. My comment was just pointing out the reasons why she would have some negative opinions about being a Disney starlet.

      • Side-Eye says:

        HOLY SHIT, blaize, do Miley Cyrus’ people pay you are something? How come in every single post about her, I see your high and mighty ass swooping down from nowhere and injecting your false overly dramatic opinions down people’s throats just because they DARED to criticize the sacred Miley Cyrus. Why is it that you’re always coming in with these insane accusations about rape culture on posts that literally have fuck-all to do with it? Why is people condemning drug use being a prude or straight-laced? And I know this may come as a shock to you, but not everyone has tried drugs. Not everyone leads a “sexually liberating” lifestyle.

        And–this may also come as a shock to you–it doesn’t make them any better or worse than anyone else. Get the hell over yourself, because every single post I’ve ever seen you make is so offensive and self-righteous it’s not even funny.

      • blaize says:

        Ha! I WISH I had such a cushy job like being paid to defend people.

        I didn’t accuse anyone of anything or say that anyone is perpetuating rape culture. The topic was how could Miley Cyrus have anything bad to say about Disney when they made her what she was. I listed reasons why she might have to feel that way about Disney.
        What is self-righteous about that?

      • Andrew says:

        @Blaize

        I understand that yes, people expect Disney stars to keep the clean image. But it’s like Miley is purposefully being shocking to deviate from it. There is a way to grow up away from Disney that doesn’t involve wearing diaper shorts and doing Molly and shading WHAT MADE HER FAMOUS.

        Disney is what made her a star, she could at least have done nice things to say. Acting and singing on that show is the only talent she’s ever had. Now, she’s auto tuning crap and calling it her gift to the world. It would NOT be getting any attention if it wasn’t for her trying to go for shock value, because she definitely isn’t showing any talent.

        Even if she still acted like this immature 13 year old, she could at least THANK or acknowledge the hand that fed her.

  5. K says:

    Agree that it’s the opposite of being grown up.

  6. UsedToBeLulu says:

    “you can let people like Zimmerman off on trial”

    Unbelievable. And ‘dancing with Molly’ means you are grown up? Does this mean she will offer Noah a line at her sweet 16? ‘Cause you know, nothing says ‘grown up’ like doing drugs.

    • Barhey says:

      I know she’s inarticulate on her best days, but that line made me do a double take. I don’t understand what that trial had to do with her music video? Sounds like she just randomly dropped it in conversation to be relevant, which is pretty tasteless.

    • blaize says:

      The reason why she specifically mentioned the Zimmerman trial is because on the same day when it happened she said something about it on twitter. This interview might have taken place at around the same time.

    • ChicagoGirl says:

      She is a complete ass hole because of how sheltered and rich she is. Who the hell is buying anything produced by her? For comparing her garbage to the Zimmerman trial – does she even realize a child died? – a boycott of all her crap is in place. She is an argument for the redistributing of wealth if a socialist ever saw one.

  7. Seattlemomma says:

    Perhaps she should date Justin Bieber. They seem to have a lot in common.

  8. Spooks says:

    Poor poor baby, starting at the bottom. She lives in a different world, she lives in LA. Shut up, Miley.

    Her second outfit s great and I actually like her hair.

    AND CAN SHE EVEN SPELL PROPERLY?! I am foreign and can’t read her twitter account.

  9. mata says:

    I really don’t have strong feelings about her one way or the other, but I can’t stop giggling at the fact that her notion of starting at the bottom is making millions of dollars starring in her own TV show.

  10. Cece says:

    What she is doing is the opposite of grown up. One day she’ll learn that true success comes from talent, not an act in which you dress as provocatively as possible and take drugs to be cool. I know 15 year-olds who are already past that…

    • blaize says:

      I don’t think she experiments with drugs to be cool. I think she uses her age and her ‘bad girl’ reputation as an excuse or reason to try the things she wants to try.

      Why shouldn’t she dress provocatively? She’s young and a pop star. I’m all for a person’s right to dress however they please.

  11. An says:

    Nicole S look beautiful. Miley looks awful. She really needs to stop doing interviews and be a bit more mysterious.

  12. lisa says:

    her mouth cant close over those gigantic chompers without giving her a very pained, constipated, pursed expression

  13. Stacie says:

    Hmm funny, I’ve always looked at drugs as a sign of immaturity…

  14. cbreader says:

    All these ex disney stars think they can prove they’ve “grown up” by sexing themselves up and getting wasted all the time? Uh, no. You just got trashy. Ingrates…

    • blaize says:

      So are you saying that if ANY star who used to be on Disney experiments with drugs and dresses a certain way, it has to mean that they’re trying to prove that they’re adults? Can’t it just be that they’re doing the same things that others are doing for the same reasons that others do them?

      And if all it takes to make a human being trash is clothing and drugs, I’d hate to see what you think of people who have done things that are actually, you know, WRONG.

  15. yogurt says:

    The more she talks, the more I realize how very…. not smart she is.

      • Jane says:

        I agree. Based on her verbiage and how she speaks, I do not think she even graduated high school. If she did, she was passed through easily for whatever reason. She hardly makes sense, her sentences ramble and she seems to be stuck in an early pubescent stage. Before someone rams into me for this..I have been a teacher for 27 years. My 5th graders speak with far more intelligence than her.

    • Carolyn says:

      Epic PR fail. Is Miley choosing to put out this ridiculous “image” or is she being advised.

      Imagine living with her. It is telling that Liam hasn’t done any press since the breakup (if he has I haven’t seen it). He probably is very thankful that they’re over.

      My daughter is at the lower age of Miley’s target market and in her own words (unprompted by me) thinks Miley is an “idiot and tryhard”.

  16. DanaG says:

    Yeah cause smoking pot and taking drugs takes such a level of maturity. Idiot she is. It just shows how immature and childlike she is. And I think her and Justin should hook up both of them are spoilt idiots with no idea of real life.

  17. Nikki says:

    “It depends who’s doing what. If you’re aged ten it’s ‘Miley,’”

    Except that 10 year olds can read and use the Internet. If they look up the lyrics, they’re going to realize its not “Miley” and they are probably going to goggle the “Molly” reference. Give your fans some credit you arrogant, insufferable asshole.

  18. Jane says:

    GOD, I am so sick and tired of seeing her plastered all over loads of magazines and web sites. She is an eye-sore and really doesn’t contribute anything positive to the world. Why bother with her?

  19. Stevie says:

    I don’t necessarily take issue with trying drugs and that whole thing but she could really use a bit of self awarenes and gratitude. She honestly has no idea how she comes across.

  20. blue marie says:

    I’m not going to hold the drug thing against her, I tried it when I was younger. Wasn’t the smartest time in my life, but I grew up and get over it. Having said that though, Miley really needs to STOP TALKING because no matter how mature she thinks she sounds, she’s coming off as a dumb, immature kid..

  21. epiphany says:

    The very fact that Miley thinks her behavior, described in her song, makes her grownup is all the proof we need that she is still a child – an annoying one at that.

    • blaize says:

      I’m pretty sure that it’s the other way around: she’s not saying “See! I’ve grown up! The fact that I’ve tried drugs proves it!” I think she’s saying “Look, I’ve grown up. So I’m going to try all the things I want to try (including drugs) and if you don’t like it, too bad. And I’m not going to try to hide it either.”

  22. Reece says:

    All I see is naked a** on a public seat and I am disgusted on multiple levels.

    As for maturity…if you need to talk about it then you aren’t.

  23. Marty says:

    Ummm….did she just compare the Zimmerman case to simulating a bj? How are they even remotely related?

  24. Heebeegeebee says:

    Liam Hemsworth really needs to get away from this.

  25. mkyar says:

    Girl, reaching the age of majority doesn’t mean you’ve ‘grown up’.

  26. kim says:

    Lmao she’s just doesn’t get it. She tries so hard to be cool and is still that hillbilly trying to fit in it’s almost sad.

  27. Samtha says:

    If she really wants to grow up, she should take her money and pay for an education. Maybe read a book or two.

    I might have just rolled my eyes at this before, but in the wake of Cory Monteith’s death, it kind of grates to see anyone trying to pretend the 24/7 drugs-and-party lifestyle is “grown up” and glamorous.

    • Bijlee says:

      This is how people in her circle think. She’s surrounded by it. In their view this is smart. Having an opinion without reading without understanding nuisances is smart. She goes with the zeitgeist and doesn’t learn to form an opinion for herself. She NEEDS an education, desperately. What’s shes saying now may have been considered mature for 16 maybe 17, but at 20 it’s vapid and entirely vacuous. More than likely her managers told her all these things and she just repeats all this crap for her image. I absolutely do not trust celebrities. They’re always trying to sell something. She’s in way to insular an environment and IMO she just does not have enough life experience at all. Her priveleged lifestyle is just so different from the majority of the people she’s trying to make money from. But idiots buy it regardless. And yes her image, her song, her music video, this whole thing is try hard.

    • Esmom says:

      Totally agree. A recent high school grad in our town just died of organ failure after mixing MDMA and booze. That on top of Cory’s death and the glamorization of drugs by ignorant aholes like Miley has me fearing for my tween kids’ futures more than ever.

    • blaize says:

      There are plenty of people who have experimented with certain drugs without it leading to death or addiction, so this sort of thing really doesn’t bother me. I feel the same way about alcohol.

  28. irishserra says:

    “I wanted to be able to get here, so when I was older I’d be able to just do what I want and not have to work for money.” Great work ethic, Miley.

    @brin: You really hit the nail on the head. The bottom line is that she’s still a child pretending to be a grownup and either has had really bad people around her who didn’t tell/show her how to evolve into a mature adult OR she is just too self-absorbed to give a crap.

  29. Emily C. says:

    Okay… I’ve been defending Miley, seeing so many people hate on her because she dared to cut her hair short. But this isn’t defensible.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with her not wanting to work for money. She could do so many other things with her time instead. First, get an education. Then, devote herself to Amnesty International or Americorps or something. But no, she seems determined to go the self-involved route, and who around her is going to question her?

    She’s not going to listen to critics, and so many have been crying wolf about her cutting her damn hair, I don’t know if I can blame her for shutting critical strangers out entirely. And she’s not close to anyone who doesn’t think the same way as her and/or has been using her for money her whole life. She’s heading for a serious fall.

    She’s completely right about the censors though.

    • Hakura says:

      I also agree with her about the censors (& how ridiculous they can be). The only aspect of that I don’t agree with is her random (inappropriate) comparison with the outcome of the Zimmerman case. It just sort of ‘came out of left field’…

    • blaize says:

      When I graduated from high school (3 years ago) I didn’t want to go to college or be serious either. I just wanted to take a few years off to do my own thing- stay up as late as I wanted to, get up as late as I wanted to, go wherever I wanted to, I didn’t want to be told what to do (I still don’t), and I wanted to have fun. That included partying. So I can understand where Miley is at right now in life, since she’s (about) the same age as me. Some older adults in my life have reacted similarly to the way people react to Miley: You’re not a kid anymore. It’s time to get serious and do something other than playing videogames, partying, drawing, reading manga (to be fair, I do read more than manga) shopping, surfing the web, etc.

      I’m working right now and I plan to go to college, but I want to have fun right now. I feel that everybody should be able to spend the first few years of their adult life having a good time and doing what they want.

      • Hakura says:

        @blaize – (I’m not ‘comment stalking’ you, I swear xD)

        I was the same way, at that age. That includes the ‘drawing & reading manga’, which I still do =) I totally understand wanting to enjoy early adulthood.. (It sounds ridiculous, but when I turned 18, I was amazed that I could say ‘No’ to my parents xD I was such a dork.)

        You’re still adjusting to the fact that *you* decide what you’re gonna do, & have to make it happen for yourself. Everyone makes bad decisions during this life stage.

  30. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Andrew paige and Jane for the win; before the age of social media, if you had no talent you faded away, but social media is a vast chasm that needs filled hourly, and it fills it with dopes like this ungrateful kid.

  31. Annie says:

    I will never understand people who say that taking drugs or having sex is making them grow up, even if they call it “experimenting”. That is such a generous word for effing around. There is nothing amazing, useful, interesting about taking drugs either. There’s nothing mature about it. Having sex doesn’t make you grow up either. It’s just sex; a basic human need. That’s like saying shitting or eating made your grow up and become who you are. You gain nothing from it, other than pleasure. And pleasure is good, but it’s not something that makes you GROW as an individual. Your work does, what you do through your work does and you can’t call yourself an artist, and have so many people listen to you if you don’t have a message to share. That’s just vanity. “Look at me!” That’s all you want. So why do you call yourself an artist if you’re just a performer using sex for attention? The greatest writers and painters to this day made people think and feel. Miley is just the descendent of some good old cheap entertainment you could find at any tavern or brothel before the times of Jesus, we just have new ways of distribuiting that cheap entertainment to the masses, but it’s the same thing.

    And again, a girl in entertainment has to put all her money on her looks and sexuality in order to “make it”.

    • Trillion says:

      This isn’t in defense of M.C. but I would like to point out that not all drugs are equal. Personally, I find psychedelic drugs fascinating, beautiful and life-enriching but they are certainly not for everybody. I find cocaine pretty gross, on the other hand, but to each their own.

    • Me2 says:

      Well said Annie. Agree completely.

    • blaize says:

      I don’t think she’s trying to say, “I’m sexual and I’m trying drugs. That makes me an adult.” I think she’s saying, “I’m sexual. I’m trying drugs. And I’ll wear whatever I want. And I have no shame about these things. If some people don’t like that, so what? I’m legal now. You want me to hide it? No, I’m gonna be open about it.”

      While I agree that sexuality doesn’t make a person an adult, once you start to express and explore sexuality in the many ways that one can and you enjoy it and learn more about, it can make you grow as an individual. Besides the pleasure, you start to learn more about yourself through sexuality (and more about other people and society as well).

  32. HH says:

    I don’t care that people do party drugs. I do care that people do them and act like it’s the coolest thing ever.

  33. Jayna says:

    Madonna was unique right from the get-go, and still looking back at her early twenties with her style was edgier than any of these try-hards. Except Rhianna is edgy. And Madonna’s hits and songs were everywhere album after album. Many of her videos are still the gold standad and iconic. Blond Ambition is considered the best pop tour by a female and is iconic and changed how pop stars in the future did their shows. Truth or Dare documentary still blows these young pop stars out of the water doing their pale imitation iof a tour documentary. What is Miley known for really these last few years? Gossip sites. Not music.

  34. Hannah says:

    I ‘m no prude and i have fun but i just find it very sad and frustrating when someone so talented vocally feels that being grown up is boasting about drug use. This would be cause for sorting yourself out in my group of friends and I’m sure in most other people’s too. I find it particularly sad especially after so recently seeing a young actor die from his addictions.

    I don’t understand why she is being celebrated for this behavior. I would hope that some of her peers will come forward and maybe question the behavior and the lyrics – perhaps Demi?

    It’s not cool and it shows how again and again it is one rule for celebrities and another for the rest of us.

  35. Buckwild says:

    That assistant is the one she got photographed with getting very friendly in a pool, sparking cheating rumors on her end…he is good looking but he has seriously 0 muscle mass in those pool photos, I can’t imagine going from Liam to this skinny boy lol

  36. aquarius64 says:

    I bet her Hanna Montana fans appreciate her basically admitting she has used them all those years to get fame.

    • Hakura says:

      @aquarius64 – Good point… I’m sure the fans who watched & supported the show (& merchandise) thus ‘supporting’ her insane paychecks… feel great, hearing about how it was ‘just some thing’ she did to get paid, & was something she couldn’t have cared less about.

      It’s like a big middle finger to those who were ‘fans’ of her acting (which she apparently never had ANY passion for), which got her to where she is now.

    • blaize says:

      She was 12 when Hannah started. A little girl who wanted to be a famous actress/singer. I think most of these tween Disney kids use Disney for fame.

  37. Amber says:

    She’s trying so hard to be like Rihanna it’s beyond pathetic. What a loser, no wonder Liam ran to somebody else. When her teeth are showing she reminds me of that fish with the killer grill ready to tear us all apart.

  38. Webster says:

    Is it the lack of education that makes her sound like a nitwit? Starting at the bottom, what a joke. She doesn’t know what the bottom is but keep going girl, you just might see what the real bottom looks like some day.

  39. Wednesday says:

    You know what would be edgy today?
    Being a prude. Wearing clothes. Not stimulating sexual acts, and oh, not doing drugs (!).
    Miley needs to get back to country because her voice just has a natural twang. She’s not suited for the type of music she trying for.

  40. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dude that skinny before, especially in the arms. He looks like he can break in half.

  41. Jaded says:

    She is just so unconscionably stupid it makes me want to slap her. She clearly knows NOTHING about the legal system and processes that got Zimmerman off, nor can she fathom that showing people getting shot in movies is bad enough but sometimes it’s part of a realistic story. Can you imagine a movie about WW11 with people shooting silly string at each other?

    I personally cringe at the thought of having to see oral sex on screen. If she thinks a public beej is acceptable and she simulates it to an interviewer then she’s way further down the evolutionary scale than I can imagine.

  42. Deidre says:

    So her utmost ambitions on making it big were becoming a wasted, druggy, porn star?

  43. diva says:

    She needs to go away. Nicole S. looks so miserable

  44. Maria says:

    She continues to remind me of a privileged Furby with no respect for who gave her a start and no understanding of what constitutes adulthood.

    Spoiled brat.

  45. Hakura says:

    It looks like she & Nicole S. traded shoes in that first pic… It totally distracted me from the rest of it. xD

    Maybe Miley has been holding hands with friends/assistants because she can’t balance/walk in those ridiculous sky-high heels she’s been wearing.

  46. Anneliese says:

    “Start from the bottom”….hasn’t she been rich her whole life?

  47. Garrett says:

    No, It just proves that you’ve gone stupid.

  48. BooBooLaRue says:

    Something nice. Her tongue is in her mouth where it belongs.

  49. Swtmelody says:

    Silly girl. How is that proof that she’s grown up? That’s a very immature way of thinking.

  50. St says:

    Yeah.. Just recently that guy from Glee shockingly died from overdose of drugs. And Miley is promoting drugs like it’s some fun growing up experience… Cory Monteith was probably starting from light drugs too. And this is where it got him.

    And people were judging Liam because he wanted out of their relationship. Liam looks like boring guy, who wants to spend his daytime at gym and evening time at home, drinking beer and watching TV. Miley wants to go to clubs, do drugs, party with friends and stuff. No wonder they have nothing in common and he wants out.

    Miley really should date Bieber. They are on the same level of “growing up experience”. They would both go drink and party every day, “dancing with Molly” and stuff. But the funny thing is that Miley seriously thinks that she is above Bieber and that she is more smarter and mature. When in reality they are both rich stupid young adults with the minds of a 16 years old teenagers.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I think that Liam is just a regular old person, who is a little bit more mature than a lot of people his age.

      Just from what I’ve seen of him, he wants to work, and then go home and spend time with his girl, and his family. I don’t think he’s necessarily against going out, but all the time? Nope. I think he just outgrew that part really quick. Plus the men from Australia (in Hollywood) have a reputation for settling down young and quick.

      I need one of those…I’m not a person who’s into going to clubs. I have no desire to.

      So I don’t think that they’re right for each other, unless they want to break it off and wait a few years. I also think that she needs to focus on her work, rather than partying or her man.

    • blaize says:

      So you’ve never tried any drugs and you don’t have friends that have?

      Beiber is a hateful little jerk. Miley isn’t, and none of the ‘scandalous’ (where are my pearls) things that she has done have hurt anyone.

      • Side-Eye says:

        This may come as a shock you, but not every in the world has been tempted by or used drugs.

      • Carolyn says:

        I’ve never done drugs either. Haven’t missed anything.

        Blaise, I respect that you’re young and are at the stage of your life when you feel you can do & say anything etc etc. Those of us who have lived life see through all these starlets’ desperate attempts at PR “shocks” to try and stay relevant, for what they are. We’ve seen it all before time and time again. Zzzz….

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        I disagree, @Blaize; Miley’s music does harm the young and impressionable. Music is way more powerful than you may realize. The legions of young people growing up on Miley’s music (that mainly focuses on drugs and anonymous hook ups) are heavily influenced to think that’s the right of passage to adulthood. Miley is promoting the musical equivalent of The Emperor’s new clothes. There’s no there there.

        Sure, so many other genres and artists, from Jelly Roll Morton, ‘Classic Rock’, The Beastie Boys, to contemporary musicians, sang about drugs and no strings sex and performed music to party to; the difference is these artists have depth and cover so much more. They also covered poverty, social injustice, race relations, love, growing up, growing old; you name it – the themes that make up the tapestry and contradictions of life.

      • blaize says:

        My opinions about sex are liberal. I believe that each individual has the right to choose for themselves when to engage in sexual activity, whether they just want to hook up with someone, whether they’re friends with benefits, whether they’re in love, or if they’re waiting until marriage. So it doesn’t bother me when singers talk about hooking up at all. I don’t see that as problematic.

        This is Miley’s first song with a drug reference. It was originally Rihana’s song. I think Miley’s trying to be edgy and shocking with this, and that doesn’t bother me. Because even a really talented singer’s career will flag if the things in her songs and music videos don’t garner enough attention.

        And I’ve never been a fan of the whole ‘There are 9-year-olds out there, so these 20, 30, and 40-year-old singers/artists/pop stars had better not sing about sex or drugs’ idea.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        I am also sex positive, but Miley has been doing the stripper pole since the 2010 Teen Choice Awards. It’s when I see the padded bras for the 9-year-olds, when tweens think good sex is about being with strangers, and when the music they hear encourages little boys and little girls to think of hooking up and using drugs as the way to be a grown up– that’s when I wish all these very young people could experience love with their first time and be exposed to a pop culture that supports & encourages romance, love, self-worth. I just want more for kids entering their teens.

  51. Lflips says:

    Yeah..if by “grown up” you mean you’re not legally considered a child anymore.

  52. Kelly says:

    What an ungrateful, ignorant piece of work. Can we ignore her now?

  53. BeesKnees says:

    I am fine with Miley’s hair and new “style”, but the constant verbal diarrhea spewing from her mouth lately has got to stop. I hate to sound snobby, but she just doesn’t sound very smart. I’m sorry she wasn’t passionate about Hannah Montana, but wasn’t she like 14-15 at the time? What kind of “art” was she hoping to create at that time?

  54. Tiffany says:

    Is it just me or are those scars on her legs. Is she cutting again because those look fresh.

    As far as the interview, she is a idiot and today
    is Monday.

    • blaize says:

      Yes, everyone assumes that if a celebrity has scars or bruises, that they must have done it themselves. Makes for good tabloid fodder.

      • Kristin says:

        Okay, seriously, ENOUGH. I am fully supportive of a free society where we are all allowed to speak our minds, but you’re starting to take it to the point of it being ridiculous. I went back through this article and counted how many times you posted a comment. 18 times. And each comment is blindly supportive of everything Miley has ever said or done, regardless of what that might be. Are you related to her or something? I’m serious. I’ve never seen anyone so blindly, 100% supportive of every single thing, regardless of how ridiculous it may be, that spews out of a celebrity’s mouth.

      • blaize says:

        I’m not blindly supportive of Miley- I definitely think she’s immature and I didn’t like her in the beginning of her career.

        However, I feel VERY VERY VERY strongly about a person’s right to do whatever one pleases with their physical appearance, lately I’ve become interested in people’s reactions to people doing drugs (and I disagree with the idea that anyone who tries certain drugs while they’re young is doomed to a life of Lohandom and death) and our society’s one-sided anti-nudity, anti-toplessness stance irritates me. Since all three of those issues are coming up in this post, I’ve commented a lot.

      • Hakura says:

        @Kristin – I may not agree with everything Blaize has to say, but she has every right to say it. And we’re not limited to a ‘maximum number of replies’ per post. How many times she’s posted is *her* business. Your comment came across pretty rude, TBH.

        If you don’t like what she has to say, just disagree & move on, or ignore it & move on.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Blaize, you have every right to share your opinion, as many times and ways that you want! Rock on.

  55. Novaraen says:

    I haven’t seen or heard her do anything that was grown up. In fact…she’s more immature than ever.

  56. Kathryn says:

    I’m the exact same age as Miley and I started to like her post-Hannah Montana days and after her haircut liked her even more for reinventing herself. Hell, I actually really like We Can’t Stop. However, after reading her interviews and twitter feed, she is grating on me. She should realize without her famous father getting her the job on Hannah Montana she probably would never broken into showbiz. HM made her all of her wealth so now she can party, do drugs, shop and do whatever she wants. I have no problem with how she lives but being completely ungrateful and COMPLAINING about Disney, makes me want to them to take back all of her paychecks. The fact that she feels the need to comment on Disney in every interview is insane- take a note from Selena and Demi.. Be grateful, move on. Her obsession with mentioning her ungrateful-ness is weird, it’s like constantly talking about someone you hate… I’m going to keep listening to her music but take it at face value, and try to separate it from her image. Hopefully she doesn’t turn into the next JB.

    • Hakura says:

      @Kathryn – I agree. I remember someone saying (I wish I could remember if it was a post or in a story) that they thought Miley’s ‘Disney-hate’ was her worrying that it would mess up her ability to develop ‘street cred’. (Disney doesn’t exactly bring ‘badass’ to mind).

      But she’s going about separating herself from them entirely the wrong way, continuously bringing it up.

  57. Side-Eye says:

    Why do people like this get so much exposure? The music she puts out is garbage, her acting is garbage, and I don’t understand how her and Justin Bieber are always in the news. I can’t.

  58. Mia says:

    Good lord, I’m tired of Miley’s edgy, try hard attention whore tactics. And I’m tired of her looking like a bad Rihanna clone. It’s almost like she thinks her entire look and her behavior hasn’t been done before and it wasn’t done BETTER. She just looks so fake and phony. I can’t take this trick.

  59. StaCat1 says:

    Growing up has nothing to do with doing drugs. Being a productive and responsible person who helps the world around her is GROWING UP.

    Wasting yourself and hiding from reality is the opposite of growing up.

    sad little girl.

  60. Ginger says:

    I look upon partying ( from my own experience) as being immature. I just hope she has some people looking out for her. growing up means a lot more than doing drugs.

  61. Lexi says:

    I dont think she has grown up any, she called justin bieber messed up and stupid, i think she is messed up and stupid, her behaviour is not the behaviour of a mature woman, its the behaviour of a rebellious pre-teen

  62. Andrew says:

    ugh! totally sap-ophilia! Miley is such a spoiled little brat! i hope she overdoses on her fame high!

  63. TheWendyNerd says:

    Actually, Miley, it just proves how immature you are.

  64. ParisPucker says:

    she is such an idiot. you’re grown up because you do drugs?!?!? Can we PLEASE OMIT her from covering her moving forward…she is so irrelevant..

  65. 1234 says:

    Seriously Blaize?? I’ve never commented on anything like this but I HAD to this time. I literally had to stop reading the comments half way through because Blaize had to reply to 90% of the comments. Say your piece and just stop! Please!! No one needs you responding to everyone that they’re wrong and that experimenting with drugs is okay. Wait until you have a kid and they’re a preteen/teen and they have Miley to look up to. And by the way 8 year olds can look up song lyrics, so the 10 year olds Miley mentioned will definitely look it up and understand what she’s actually talking about!

  66. Denise says:

    Hmmm. I think if we ask celebrities to speak, then this is the kind of thing we might get back. Especially from young hicks who rode in on their washed up daddy’s name. We wouldn’t be paying attention if she didn’t have her newly skinny legs out on display constantly. She knows what she’s doing.

  67. Hakura says:

    I have to wonder if Miley ever goes back & reads her own interviews. To me, it comes across as someone who doesn’t rehearse (or even think about) their answers ahead of time.

    I consider myself an intelligent, articulate person… But I think even *I* could sound like a complete dumbass if not giving any thought to how I would answer certain questions being asked in interviews.

    That is NOT to say that’s the only reason she gives stupid answers, just a possible contributing factor.

  68. Tryhard says:

    She’s dumb and such a try hard, I’d wish she’d only go away.

  69. Quinn says:

    She just has a big ole’ DERP!!! face, to me.

  70. Whatever says:

    You’re not edgy, original or anything of the sort. Your a dumb little rich girl with minimal talent who needs to grow the fuck up and realize that to some of these girls you’re a role model. We already have Rihianna for trash, we don’t need you too. If this is your behavior choice get away from the camera’s you attention wh%re.
