Miley Cyrus Talks Body Dysmorphia: “Retouched Photos Make You Feel Like Shit”

You know what, Miley Cyrus has really evolved into a smart, independent, expressive and opinionated young women and I love it. In an interview with Marie Claire, Miley talked about how her time as a Disney commodity gave her body dysmorphia and it wasn’t until recently that she was able to really be herself:

“When you look at retouched, perfect photos, you feel like shit. They lighten black girls’ skin. They smooth out wrinkles. Even when I get stuck on Instagram wondering, ‘Why don’t I look like that?’ It’s a total bummer. It’s crazy what people have decided we’re all supposed to be. …

I was made to look like someone that I wasn’t, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn’t on that show, it was like, ‘Who the fuck am I?’ …

I’m probably never going to be the face of a traditional beauty company unless they want a weed-smoking, liberal-ass freak. But my dream was never to sell lip gloss. My dream is to save the world.”

Hell yes, do you. [Marie Claire via Mic]

I really don’t know what to make of thee millennial fashion/lifestyle brand Shop Jeen, which features ’90s candy raver-inspired gear with a porn-y internet meme edge, but I do know I love this profile of their CEO, as well as everything about the photo below. []
