Miley Cyrus is a feminist

“I feel like I’m one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women to not be scared of anything. For me, it’s not even that I’m a feminist. I’m for anybody. I’m for everybody, for everything. I don’t care what you wanna do in your life, or who you wanna be with, who you wanna love, who you wanna look like. You’ve got about 90 years — hopefully we all live to be 105 — you’ve got about 105 years on this earth and, like, you should be happy every single one of those [years]. There’s no reason to not be. It’s like, as long as you’re breathing, you should just find the best in everything.”

In a sea of young female pop stars like Kelly Clarkson and Taylor Swift who say they aren’t feminists, it’s somewhat refreshing to hear that Miley Cyrus considers herself one (along with Beyoncé!). But I’d be remiss not to point out the criticisms that other feminists, especially women of color feminists, have about Miley. In particular I’m talking about the way she performed with black women onstage at the VMAs, at one point spanking a black woman on the butt as if she were a prop. One of the dancing bears from Miley’s VMAs routine even said afterwards the performance made her feel “less than human.”  It’s not hard to understand why. So, while I’m happy to hear that Miley Cyrus doesn’t shy away from the F-word, she has some work to do as well in terms of how she shows respect to all women.  [Huffington Post] [Image via Splash News]
