Miley Cyrus: ‘I don’t have a girl crush on Angelina Jolie’

miley cyrus book 080309

Remember how Miley Cyrus was telling every reporter at the Oscars how she wanted to meet Angelina Jolie that night? I believe her exact words were “I want to be adopted.” Unfortunately for all involved (or not so much), Miley didn’t get to meet Angelina. She talked about this specific pain in the days after the Oscars.

While it’s still up in the air whether Angelina purposefully snubbed Miley or the two women’s paths never crossed, she is still talking about La Jolie. But she wants everybody to know that her desire to meet Angelina shouldn’t be considered a “girl crush.” Miley just likes Angelina the appropriate amount. OK! has more:

Miley Cyrus wants everyone to know she loves Angelina Jolie – but not that way y’all.
While out signing copies of her new book Miles to Go in L.A. this weekend, Miley told Extra just how big an Angie fan she really is.

“I don’t have a girl crush on Angelina, but I definitely think she’s super beautiful and anyone that says she’s not pretty is lying to you because she is gorgeous,” Miley said.

“She’s really unique and never scared to step over the line and be crazy and be herself. I like that.”

Thanks for clearing that up for us Miley! We were starting to wonder…

So, my first thought when I read this was that Miley is concerned that her previous gushing about Angelina might be construed as a whiff of latent lesbianism in the young Disney star. If that’s the case, this is a bad way to back-track, because Miley comes across as just another teenage girl with a girl crush on Angelina. Why is that so bad? Does Disney hate lesbians so much that now Miley’s simple, innocent girl crush needs to be vetted?

A lot of us spew hate towards Miley (and I’m one of them), but I think in this particular instance, her Angelina girl crush is probably the most innocent thing she’s got going on.

    I think Miley is just now realizing how people will skew just about everything she says or blow what she does out of proportion. She’s done some dumb things — but also everything she does gets magnified a million times. She’s only 16 and she’s going to have to start doing damage control for everything she says.

    Disney definitely wouldn’t want a girl-crush associated with their already tainted star – no matter how innocent it really is…

  2. Codzilla says:

    So Disney wouldn’t want their star to admit to a girl crush, but they’re OK with her posting sexually suggestive photos of herself online?

    Damn, that book is already out? I’m sure its riveting, just riveting 🙄

    @ bodhi – I’m sure it is. I’m sure there is plenty of amazing advice to save in our ‘how to live life’ folder.

    Miley is such a sweet young women, there’s millions of fans who want to meet Angelina.

  6. Holly says:

    I don’t know what you guys are talking about. I have no idea how to live my life until celebrities tell me.

  7. Sarah says:

    Well, I’m pretty sure the majority if not all of the photos posted of Miley online were posted by an outside source. And I’m sure Disney was not happy about it.

    Woah! Yet another analysis that is completely off the mark….

    “Does Disney hate lesbians so much that now Miley’s simple, innocent girl crush needs to be vetted?”

    Are you aware that the television show Ellen, on which which Ellen DeGeneres’ character came out as a lesbian, aired on ABC, owned by the Walt Disney Company and part of Disney-ABC Television Group!! Also, are you aware that Disney has been boycotted numerous times over the years by conservative groups that were opposed to such things as Disney offering gay employees domestic partnership benefits, and gay-friendly projects Disney has been a part of?

  9. L says:

    Like why even mention Disney when the quote from OK says nothing about it?

  10. L says:

    Um yeah, what, So Sick of This? Yeah, my point was that labeling Disney as a lesbian hater is unreasonable. My other point was that what a stretch it is to determine from Miley Cyrus saying how attractive she finds Angelina Jolie that Disney is a lebian hater. It makes no sense whatsoever. I don’t understand what porn has to do with it, and I am not aware of Disney owning porn companies. What are they anyways, out of curiosity? As far as image, Disney isn’t shy about it’s relationship with Ellen Degeneres – a well known lesbian -as she was the the voice of Nemo in the movie, and also they feature Ellen as herself in a ride at Walt Disney World Epcot. Is that a better example since it’s more closely related to “the parent company”? Oh but, they do not feature lesbian sex in their movies and theme parks, probably because they are concerned about the image of “the parent company”, but in my opinion that doesn’t make them lesbian haters.

    This retraction on Miley’s part is tacky. I’m bisexual, and anyone who is bi or gay wouldn’t use the word “girl crush”, they would simply refer to a guy or girl they liked as a crush since it doesn’t need to be explained. From my understanding, a straight girl saying they have a “girl crush” means that they have platonic thoughts and feelings about someone they find very attractive. By saying ‘girl’ crush, they are in essence saying that this isn’t something they are serious about romantically or the norm. I know plenty of straight women who have ‘girl crushes’ and no one reads anything into it. The fact that Miley is so hung up on her sexuality that she actually has to clarify that, then goes on to talk about how beautiful she finds Angelina which would technically be a ‘girl crush’ is a bit confusing and only makes me wonder about Miley’s sexuality more than I would have before this statement. Did you get all of that? LOL.

  12. Sarah says:

    Well, I have a ‘girl crush’ on Miley Cyrus, and it’s annoying to no end! Particularly since there is zero chance of a) me ever meeting her and b) telling her how I feel and c) her liking me back.
    She should count herself lucky that she’s in a position to actually MEET someone she finds attractive, regardless of whether she likes them ‘like that’ or not.
