8 Times Miley Cyrus Was Wise Beyond Her Years, Because She's Dropped Knowledge Since She Was Hannah Montana

Miley Cyrus has been making headlines recently, and this time, it has nothing to do with foam fingers. After announcing her charity for homeless LGBT youth, The Happy Hippie Foundation, earlier this month, Cyrus has been open about gender and sexuality in a way she never has been before, and her comments are incredibly insightful and empowering. Not only has she admitted that her past relationships haven't fit the definition of "heterosexual," but she's also declared how meaningless she finds gender norms — an admission that has brought her quite a bit of attention. But this isn't the first time she's proven that she'd be an awesome person to come to for advice on any topic, and now that she's using her fame for such an amazing cause, possibilities for how she can help others are truly endless.

It isn't just her recent statements that have made it obvious Cyrus is wise beyond her years. Even though she's only 22, Cyrus has always been a fountain of wisdom. Rarely does she give an interview that doesn't show her true intelligence, even if her wild child reputation tends to precede her.

Looking for some inspiration? These wise quotes from Cyrus will likely do the trick.
