Miley Cyrus is all about love and acceptance, y'all.

The "Wrecking Ball" singer stopped by BBC's Newsbeat on Wednesday and shared that she's more than just a twerking queen—she's an activist for ladies everywhere.

"I feel like I'm one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women to not be scared of anything," she said. "Girls are all beautiful."

The 20-year-old also addressed the frustrations she has with men being held to a different standard than women.

"Guys get to show their titties on the beach, why can't we," she asked. "I don't understand the double standard of life."

And while she's almost become synonymous with controversy at this point, Cyrus declared that her message to fans is really all about open-mindedness and being authentic.

Cyrus added, "I'm for anybody and everything. I don't care what you want to do in your life, or who you want to be with, who you want to love or what you look like."

The pop star seems to be all about living in the moment and keeping a positive outlook through any situation.

"You've got about 105 years on this earth and you should be happy every single one of those. There's no reason not to be. As long as you're breathing, you should just find the best in everything."

That's certainly a healthy mindset! So how does she handle all the haters who criticize her every move?

"I don't ever go online or look at what anyone says," she admitted.

"I never worry about what I do on stage making me look bad because I know what kind of a person I am. In life you gottta look at anything that could be made negative into positive…I'm just happy to be here."
