Singer/actress/exhibitionist Miley Cyrus opened up to Elle Magazine in their May issue about life after Disney and her high profile engagement to hunky Hunger Games actor, Liam Hemsworth.
“I’m just about equality, period. It’s not like, I’m a woman, women should be in charge! I just want there to be equality for everybody,” she told Gevinson when asked about past declarations that she considers herself to be a feminist.
“I still don’t think we’re there 100 percent. I mean, guy rappers grab their crotch all f*&^ing day and have hos around them, but no one talks about it. But if I grab my crotch and I have hot model b***hes around me, I’m degrading women? I’m a woman — I should be able to have girls around me! But I’m part of the evolution of that. I hope,” Cyrus explained.
She continued, “When I went through a really intense breakup — you know, I was engaged — and when I was with him or when I was on Disney, the thing that gave me the most anxiety was not knowing what to do with myself when Disney wasn’t there to carry me anymore or if I didn’t have him. And now I’m free of both of those things, and I’m fine. Like, I lay in bed at night by myself and I’m totally okay, and that’s so much stronger than the person three years ago, who would have thought they would have died if they didn’t have a boyfriend.”
I don’t hate Miley, but I don’t love her. She claims to be all about equality and feminism and the like, and I’m sure she is, or thinks she is. I just think she tries too hard to be controversial. She’s not going out and hurting anyone at this point, wreaking havoc in the streets or spouting off to any adult in their vicinity (i.e. Justin Bieber-style). But her sensationalism makes me sad. And horrified that this is what my young daughter might look up to at some point in terms of fashion, sex and drugs….
