Quotable: Helen Mirren Is An Unexpected Miley Cyrus Fan

“I’m thrilled young girls are claiming their sexuality for themselves. I love bold women: Madonna and Scarlett Johansson—sexy and gorgeous, but not only that. And Miley Cyrus—fantastic! And Lady Gaga. I love the way she’s elevated pop to performance art, or dragged performance art down to pop, or maybe made a wonderful amalgam of the two.”

Helen Mirren is not someone you would expect to love Miley and Gaga, being that she’s a posh Dame and all, but then again, she did let Juergen Teller photograph her in the bath. [New York]
