Miley arriving @ LAX. Photos: FameFlynet. Miley told The Conversation: ‘If people find that [I am sexy], I take it as a compliment. Thank you for thinking I’m sexy! 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. I had to smile so much and I had to say so much of the same thing. I finally had to look inside and say, ‘What do I really think about this? Do I really that or am I just trained to say that? Or have I said it for so many years now that that’s what people expect me to say, so now I say it so I don’t have to say something else and be creative.
People are so scared of seeing a woman being like, ‘This is who I am and you’re not going to change it. Even just the title of that, for a woman to say she can’t be tamed. .,for a woman in the world with my face saying ‘I can’t be tamed’ when that’s really all people wanted to do, I think proves how sexist people still really are. Society wants me to ‘be sexy.. but our way.’
There’s times when you hear what you should be so much, that you actually lose what you are. I always say, if I met me, would I really like me? Would you want to be your friend? We always judge people and we put people down about the things that we don’t like about ourselves, Your worth isn’t based on [sex], your worth is based on how you feel about yourself.’
