Miley Cyrus has completely duped us all by putting on a constructed, fake persona onstage which does not match her real-life personality or interactions whatsoever. The twerking pop star admitted the ruse during a revealing interview with the New York Times. During the discussion, Cyrus admitted that her onstage persona is just “a character” she’s created to construct the illusion of a drug worshipping sexpot, but in real life, she is nothing like the person who she portrays during her performances.
While she was widely accused of being both racist and sexist after her infamous VMA performance, Cyrus vehemently denies she is either, saying that she hopes one day her children will ask her why people were “mean” in discussing someone’s skin color. Cyrus also denies being sexist, and claims that her message to women is to “be whoever you want to be.” Cyrus also claims she is a feminist.
Another way Miley Cyrus has completely duped is in her portrayal of being hyper sexual. She said that in her real offstage persona, she does not go around twerking on people, seeming to imply that twerking is reserved only for the stage rather than her daily routine. This seems like a positive, as it would look rather silly for Cyrus to engage in such behavior while performing mundane tasks. No one wants to see half-nude, twerking Miley at the grocery store or while walking their dog. It seems we can all breathe a sigh of relief that we will definitely not be subjected to Cyrus slithering around like a drugged-up python should we happen to bump into the comely miss on the street.
One tidbit of information that may come as a surprise to many people is that Cyrus doesn’t have very many friends who are celebrities. She says it’s because she thinks other celebs don’t want to be closely associated with her due to her less-than-wholesome reputation. Although she doesn’t hobnob regularly with the rich and famous set, she still thinks very highly of herself. Recently, she said, she tried to get singer Ariana Grande to pose for a photo with her, explaining “Walk out with me right now and get this picture, and this will be the best thing that happens to you, because just you associating with me makes you a little less sweet.”
Nice to know Cyrus is so full of self-confidence. Perhaps the most surprising thing that was revealed about the saucy pop tart is that she does not want to “glamorize drugs” and insists that she would not want her little sister to smoke pot. This comes as surprise to many because several of her songs reference drug use, including the controversial lyric “I like to party with Molly.” Molly is a popular street drug which is also extremely dangerous. While Cyrus says she does not want to be thought of as glorifying drugs, her songs would indicate otherwise.
Ms. Miley Cyrus has duped us all, pulling the wool over our eyes with her crazy antics. Now, it has been revealed that it’s all been one big act; a character, as she says, limited to her onstage persona and bearing no resemblance to Cyrus in real life.
