Need more proof? Well Miles says so herself in Prestige magazine, where she's quoted as bitchin', "The press seems to think that I'm trying to make this big turn and become a bad girl, and really I'm trying to be more connected with the Earth."
How lucky for Mother Nature! So is this hippie mentality the real deal?
But first, let's let Miley clear a few things up.
In case you didn't get it, she's not a bad girl.
"I'm a great role model or I'm completely inappropriate for anyone under 13 and I am controversial," she ponders on her public image. "There was this magazine article the other day, showing all the younger celebrities. I was the Girl Next Door or whatever, and I fell under the category of Good Girl Gone Bad. And I was like, 'What the hell, man?' "
Well, Miles. It may have to do with stripper poles, bong rips, saying that you were "so bored" playing Hannah Montana and mackin' on your man in public—which Miley says is so totally accidental.
"I'm with my boyfriend, for instance, and we're walking around," Miley tells the mag. "We're sure that no one is taking our picture...No one is here. And then, a few hours later, it's like, 'Miley Cyrus Alert! She was seen with Liam in public. They were kissing and hugging!' And you're like, I didn't see anybody taking our photograph that day."
Forgive us while we roll our eyes, Ms. Cyrus.
Let's be clear: We adore Miles. We think she's a ballsy broad who isn't afraid to do what she wants, when she wants. And tho it's clear she digs this whole "mature adult" ‘tude, we don't buy it.
Just look at the pics: While she's doing the Earth-y, fashionista thing in some of the shots, some of the others are straight-up hoochie. Bootie shorts, bustiers, bras and faux fur coats?
We know you loved it, Miles!
But here's the reason we love this chick:
"I'm not some crazy lady who's gone off the deep end, because I definitely haven't," M.C. reveals. "I just always try to be real. Every 18-year-old explores sexuality and experiments and tries things. For me there's no reason to change that. You have to be true to yourself."
Maybe you can reveal your Vice yourself then, M?
