Miley Cyrus made some valid points when she threw shade at Joe Jonas for his “expose” on how she and Demi Lovato peer pressured him into smoking weed for the first time when he was eighteen and she was around fourteen years old.
She said,”We were so young that it was actually like, ‘How did you get peer-pressured by me?'”
In Miley’s interview with the New York Times she added, “If you want to smoke weed, you’re going to smoke weed. There’s nothing that two little girls are going to get you to do that you don’t want to do. I thought maybe he was saying that like it was going to make him look badass.”
Well, yes. The infamous New York Magazine piece was obviously written to make Joe Jonas seem like a victim in the crazy world of Disney but a legal adult smoking pot with two little girls is hardly bad ass.
Miley Cyrus also shaded other celebs (like Ariana Grande) who hide how “real” they are in order to protect their brand image. Interesting stuff.
She said, “You don’t have to be signed to Disney Channel to be put in a box, or to be rated PG. I’m with artists sometimes, and I’ll take a picture of them or whatever. They make me delete it. [...] I’ll get someone to, like, flash me, and they’ll be, like, ‘You have to delete it!’ I had to do that when I was 14 or 15, but even then I didn’t care. Like, if someone was videoing me ripping a bong, I didn’t care, so it’s just funny to me. I’m like: ‘Dude, you’re 30. Like, why can’t someone see a picture of your [breasts]?’”
Because there is a difference between public and private, Miley. Just because someone is willing to let a friend see their boobs, doesn’t mean they want everyone to see them. It’s like this girl has forgotten that people don’t exist solely for cameras. You’d think she believes people evaporate when they aren’t tweeting or being recorded.
She does however keep it real when it come down to respecting contracts. “Things came out that happened — like, you know, bong videos — when I was on Disney. But I never wanted to do that to Disney. When I was no longer employed by anyone, that’s when I was like, “O.K., I’m going to do my own thing.” But I waited until I felt like I had respectfully finished out what I was supposed to do, you know?”
Fascinating stuff. You can read the rest of the interview.
