Sarah McLachlan chatted with Parade about Miley Cyrus & Selena Gomez. Selena Gomez will perform at Lilith Fair which means fun for the tweens: ‘I’m pretty sure she’s the youngest. [My daughter] is pretty excited about that. She was hoping for Miley, too. But I couldn’t swing that this time.‘
On Miley’s sexy transition to adulthood: ‘She’s 17. Imagine if you had a camera following you around. Do you remember what you were doing when you were 17? In a way, I feel really bad for her. She can’t just be a stupid teenager, everything she does is so scrutinized. She’s 17! She’s probably thinking, ‘Screw you all!’ She’s been a good girl for so long and she’s rebelling now.’
Will Miley make it through the controversy: ‘You know what, she’s got a lot of talent. There’s going to be some pissed off people and some upset kids, and probably some even more upset parents. But it’s kind of a natural progression that she does this. I’m sure she’s a good kid at heart.
She certainly seems like she’s got, for the most part, some really good sense and really good parents. I don’t know her personally and I’m not one to judge. Really, ultimately, I feel bad that she has to grow up in the spotlight the way she is, that she can’t just go off and do some stupid things and no one would know about it. Now everybody knows about it.’
