Miley Cyrus Wants Guys To Know Girls Aren't Porn Stars, So Perhaps Stop Acting Like One?

We actually agree with Miley Cyrus on something. We know, we know, we can't believe it either. Yes, it does have to be a pretty legitimate claim for us to do that. Welp, here it is: In a recent interview with Ronan Farrow for W Magazine, Cyrus divulged she believes men watch too much porn and set unrealistic standards for sex and women. We too, had to read that several times to make sure she actually said that and that we read that right. She did. She explained herself further, lamenting over men who think that they can emulate porn-type standards in their own lives, "Those girls don't exist. They're not real girls." Amen, sister. To be fair, Cyrus commented that us girls have our own type of guilty pleasure, too. "...That's like us watching romance movies. That's girl porn, because, like, those guys do not exist," Cyrus attested.

So what caused Cyrus to rant about the plight of women living in a porn crazed world? Well, she's newly single and has obviously been introduced to men who weren't as doting as her ex-fiance. It's hard to believe that someone as body positive and confident as Cyrus feels the male pressure to be porn-like or the ramifications for being un-porn-like. We'd like to argue that point a bit, considering her Blurred Lines performance at the VMA's and all. While Cyrus' comment is valid and holds a significant truth, at the same time, she too is perpetuating that type of impractical female imagery. No, we aren't slut shaming. I don't care what you do or what you say. As Voltaire so eloquently put it, "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." Or dance it. Or lick it. Or twerk it. Or Whatever. The point here is that her statement seems just a bit hypocritical.

When Cyrus bent over and grinded up on Robin Thicke in a nude barely-there body suit, she wasn't ruining the world. (Although, by the comments made, you may have thought so.) What she was doing was exploiting herself and distracting us from everything that wasn't her nearly naked body, mainly her talent. In an effort to gain attention, all of her infamous tongue wagging and crotch grabbing became a spectacle rather than a sexually aware statement, as she claimed it to be. On stage, Cyrus did not appear to be a strong, sexually aware woman. She appeared to be a pubescent girl who was so stereotypically desperate to get the guys to notice her. If Cyrus' statement to Farrow was sincere, than why is she so willing to be like those "unrealistic" porn girls?

We know this has a lot to do with age and maturity. We understand that Cyrus is just trying to figure out life and where she fits in just like the rest of us (albeit with millions more than the rest of us have). And we don't envy that she had to grow up and mess up in the public eye, because yes, looking back on it, there are many mistakes and phases we went through that we're glad are forgettable and not forever captured on video. The point is that while Cyrus' heart is in the right place, her actions speak another tale entirely. Instead of stripping down, she should be belting out those raspy vocals and proving to America that she's more than some girl with a pixie cut in a body suit. She has sass and wit and potential and while her body is kick ass, she is so much more than just that. For now, we think that Cyrus should follow through on her W Magazine musings, because that girl sounds smart and that girl seems to know that there is more to being a realized woman than sticking your tongue out.
