Miley Cyrus on Twerking, Nudity, Constantly Sticking Her Tongue Out: "I Don't Apologize for Anything"

It's a new week, so you know what that means — another million stories in the tabloids about Miley Cyrus' every move. The first of what is sure to be many: According to E! Online, Miley Cyrus references her recent controversial behavior in her new MTV documentary, Miley: The Movement, and responds to critics of her twerking, her nudity (primarily in the "Wrecking Ball" video), and her proclivity for constantly sticking her tongue out with one simple sentence: "I don't apologize for anything."

Though there's no clip, the gossip site explains that Miley was "defiant" as she said it, and that she added, after: "It's a strategic hot mess ... if I wanted a raunchy sex show, I wouldn't have been dressed as a damned bear."

It says volumes about the media that they to be more content with slut-shaming Cyrus, who is legally an adult and can make her own decisions, just because she used to be a squeaky-clean, innocent when she was signed with Disney. No matter that her old look was manufactured — now that she's dressing provocatively and freely proclaiming to be comfortable with her sexuality, it must mean she's gone bad! It's okay to personally not be a fan of her twerking, or her MTV VMAs performance, but not just because she's being sexual — she's an adult, and can make her own decisions about her image and career. As The Gloss' Julia Sonenshein said about the response to Cyrus' VMA performance:

To her credit, Miley seems to know this. E! Online adds that the pop star referenced both Britney Spears and Madonna's experiences in the music industry when they began exhibiting a sexier look. "How many times have you seen this play out in pop?" she says, rightfully. "Madonna's done it. Britney [Spears has] done it."

You can check out all this and more in Miley's upcoming MTV documentary, Miley: The Movement, when it premieres on Oct. 2.
