Finally! It was only a matter of time before she had to address what happened!
As pretty much everyone knows, a video of Miley Cyrus leaked a few months back featuring the former Disney starlet smoking what was alleged to be salvia out of a bong. She then proceeded to get high as balls, confused some stranger for her ex Liam Hemsworth, and attempted to rap Nicki Minaj.
Recently, Cyrus sat down with Marie Claire magazine while she was shooting So Undercover in New Orleans, and the incident was brought up, which prompted what we thought to be a pretty interesting explanation!
At first, she reportedly went down the generic route, and apologized:
"I'm not perfect…I made a mistake…I'm disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans…"
But when she was asked, "But do you really think it was a mistake? Obviously college kids your age all over America are smoking bongs with a lot more than salvia in them," that MileyBird FINALLY seemed to get real, and explains:
"But they're not Miley Cyrus. They're not role models. So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for."
A very mature and PERCEPTIVE response! She does seem to understand the impact she has on her audience, and how even what would be a MINOR incident for any other kid her age is a massive deal for her.
Kind of makes us sad for her! But then again - she makes $48 million a year, so we guess everything has to come at a price!
We're glad you finally spoke out, bb! Hopefully you've learned your lesson, and will continue to grow up and come into your own!
Thanks for the insight!
