– Miley Cyrus is shedding the “All-American” girl image she developed from age 12. Miley, now 19, isn’t afraid to get candid about issues facing young women face in 2012, after growing up in front of our eyes as the star of Disney’s Hannah Montana. On The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, Miley opened up about sex and how it is “beautiful.” It shouldn’t be a taboo topic, she argued.
“The girls that really base how much they’re worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody, that makes me really sad,” said Cyrus.
“Because sex is actually really beautiful.”
What else did Miley have to say about sex?
It’s the only way we create, and it’s the only way the world keeps going. So it’s ignorant not to talk to your kids about it or [not] make it seem as magical or cool as it actually is,” she explained. “[Kids] have a TV, so they know what sex is. So educate them and let them know … it’s a beautiful thing, and it is magic, and it’s when you connect with somebody. And it isn’t how much you’re worth. Your worth isn’t based on that, your worth is based on how you feel about yourself.”
