Miley Cyrus Empowers Young Women (And Boys Like It Too)

by | 22nd, October 2010

MILEY Cyrus is not using her teenage sex appeal to flog records and be famous. MTV (via PopEater) Miley said that she hopes that her new image empowers young women:

It’s just about freeing yourself from anything you think is holding you back. And I think that’s really important, especially for girls, because so many people are told, ‘No, you can’t do something,’ or, ‘You need to be this because mom and dad say that, teachers say this.’

Sounds like the “Can’t Be Tamed” chanteuse is a modern day Betty Friedan!

But don’t think that Miley’s new feminist-y image is all about empowering young women to wear skimpy outfits and leotards, she also sings about real issues:

I wrote [‘Liberty Walk’] for women that feel like they’re stuck in abusive relationships, but it’s a dance song. So you think that must be kind of a sad ballad, but it’s a party song. … It’s about breaking free.

Of your clothes…
