Miley Cyrus is forever being criticised for “growing up to fast” and “being too sexy for her age”.

But in this interview on The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, the 19-year old former Hannah Montana star opens up about the pressure of living in the public eye and how she is only just trying to be herself.

“I feel I was so trained in my interviews to be All-American or whatever. I just got so set in the way of saying the same things I did when I was 12-years-old… I guess I kind of realized that my whole life isn’t one giant press junket. I don’t have to be smiling all the time and always have the perfect answer.”

Her transition into a young women has seen her struggle at every turn, from her views on same-sex-marriage and religion, to her bong-smoking and ‘sexed-up’ image.

“For me, what I do [being sexy] is not the point. You’re not sitting there trying to be sexy. If people find that [I am], I take it as a compliment. People are so scared of seeing a woman being like, ‘This is who I am and you’re not going to change it. [It] used to be if you’re a woman you do not sing about sex, and now if that’s not what you’re singing about, if that’s not your entire image, you won’t get played [on radio and TV]. The last season of ["Hannah Montana"] I put out “Can’t Be Tamed,” which even just the title of that for a woman to say that she can’t be tamed, and of all people in the world, my face saying I can’t be tamed, when that’s all people really wanted to do — I think that proves how sexist people still really are and judgmental. It’s the whole thing of saying ‘be sexy, but our way.”

The singer also opened up about her feelings on how many young women value themselves based on their sexual experience.

“The girls that really base how much they’re worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody, that makes me really sad. Because sex is actually really beautiful. It’s the only way we create, and it’s the only way the world keeps going.”
