Sky Ferreira Defends ‘Feminist’ Miley

sky-mugshot
Pop star Sky Ferreira has rushed to defend controversial singer Miley Cyrus, insisting the former child actress is one of the nicest women in showbiz. Cyrus’ antics have attracted criticism and accusations her twerking dance moves are bad for women’s image, but Ferreira is adamant her fellow singer is a fervent feminist and a keen supporter of her peers.

Ferreira, who has signed on as a support act on Cyrus’ upcoming Bangerz world tour, tells rock magazine Q, ‘Miley is a smart person. She’s really supportive of other girls her age, which I don’t usually find with pop stars.

That’s why I find it funny when people call her a bad feminist. She’s actually one of the most supportive artists I’ve met.’ Sky Ferreira has been arrested twice for drug possession, most recently for cocaine.

    “That’s why I find it funny when people call her a bad feminist.”
    She’s not a “bad feminist” she’s not a feminist period.

      and why is that? To me, feminism is supporting other women, not taking them down. So many hypocrites out here.

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        I guess you can make your own meaning but that’s not what feminism really is about. It’s about females having equal rights to men.

        I’m all for people respecting and supporting other people and kudos to Miley for doing that. But putting your own meaning to a word doesn’t change its real meaning. She’s not standing by it because she respects it, she’s using it for her own gain.

          People can’t even agree on what feminism really is. Much of feminism has been about sexual liberation – anti-slut shaming, something that Miley really brought to the forefront. People are so quick to wag their fingers at others when they’ve got issues themselves.

            mhm.

        lol it’s not about supporting other women instead of bringing them down. It’s about having equal rights, equal wages, opportunities, etc. I do agree with your other comment though, it is also about stopping slut shaming and sexual liberation.
        I think it’s quite funny that feminism is such a touchy subject when it shouldn’t be.

    What @marinaandmydiamonds:disqus said. No one said she wasn’t supportive, she just doesn’t represent what she says she does. She’s making women look more like sex objects instead of equals.

      Well you can say the samething about Britney, Riri, Beyonce, Katy Perry & Gaga.

      • boystan

        What about them?

        • thecat61

          Sex objects!

      • boystan

        i don’t think i’ve ever heard Britney or Gaga call themselves femenists so why bring them into this?

      • Redneckatheart

        I and I can’t stand how the portray women either, but like @boystan:disqus said, I don’t think I’ve ever heard Britney, Gaga, or even Rihanna proclaim to be feminists.

          Feminism — the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes. Organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests.

    Also @OceanUp get on the ball!! Kevin Jonas is a daddy!

  • Clauber

    Hmmm… Yes she can be supportive with her fans but people are talking about twerking as bad image for women…. so her comment is irrelevant. Whatever, this is the price of being in the public eye, you cant please all the people.

  • boystan

    i won’t get onto this because i’m a gay guy and my opinion is irrelevant. however, i will say miley has done nothing to empower other women, at least nothing new.

    • Redneckatheart

      But you’re a great outside opinion.

  • Hanna Ourimi

    But how in the world , using sex to get fame and attention , a form of empowerment to women … Are these people delusional or simply stupid !

    • Redneckatheart

      Just a bit of both…
