Miley Cyrus lets it all hang out, literally and figuratively, in a new interview in Marie Claire. She defends her rampant nudity, upbraids Taylor Swift for hypocrisy and hits Hollywood in general for ageism, sexism and a few other isms.
Even stodgy Maire Claire is down with her nudity. It features her topless in a see-through blouse in new photos.
Miley is more than cool with it. In fact, she says the criticism she gets all comes down to culture’s double standard for women and men.
“There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it,” she tells the magazine’s September fashion issue, which she covers.
“Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he’s cool. I do it and I’m a druggie whore,” she says.
Her beef with Swift is over the “Shake It Off” singer’s latest video for her song “Bad Blood.”
“I don’t get the violence revenge thing,” she explains. “That’s supposed to be a good example?”
“And I’m a bad role model because I’m running around with my t*tties out? I’m not sure how t*tties are worse than guns,” she says.
Miley has a point, and we don’t mean a nipple. When it comes to guns and boobs, we’ll side with boobs anytime.
“I don’t really stress too much about being out there. There’s nothing left to catch me doing. You want to hack my e-mail so you can find my nude pictures? I’ll just f*cking put them up,” she dares.
Well, not exactly. Social media sites generally prohibit nudity, which has also fired up Miley and other celebrities. In fact, Miley is a leader in the “Free the Nipple” campaign. It protests social disapproval of women’s bare breasts in public.
Miley must have gotten pretty fired up in the interview. She also lashes out at the Hollywood merry-go-round.
“It’s a never-ending cycle. Getting more money, having more hits, being the lead in the movie — those things might stimulate you, but they don’t make you happy. I’ve experienced it all already, and I’m telling you firsthand, it doesn’t,” she advises.
Miley may be into flashing her private parts, but she’s also putting them to good use. She founded the Happy Hippie Foundation earlier this year to help homeless gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender kids deal with issues.
As for her own sexuality, Miley’s says she’s gender neutral. “I feel like a 15-year-old boy trapped in the body of a 22-year-old girl,” she confesses. She’s flirted with bi-sexuality for years.
After several high-profile relationships with hunks like Liam Hemsworth and Patrick Schwarzenegger, Miley is currently said to be dating model Stella Maxwell.
