Miley Cyrus knows exactly how to get people talking. But it looks like dealing with a non-stop commentary on your clothes/hair/general behaviour can sometimes become too much even for the most thick-skinned of popstars…
Yep, Miley’s decided to stand up to her Twitter trolls once and for all by kindly asking them to stop calling her ugly. Go Miss Miley!
‘I get called an ugly lesbian a lot more than one would think’, the 21-year-old Wrecking Ball singer posted. ‘Or maybe not. Can u atleast call me an interesting lesbian. I hate the U word.’
We hate it too. Plus, while we can think of plenty of names for the twerking queen – sassy, bold, tongue-tastic – ugly is most certainly not one of them.
Still, at least Miley’s not letting the name-bashing change her attitude – or her hair.
‘There’s something about having no hair that it screams being confident’, she said in a recent interview with Maxim magazine. ‘And I think especially because people like to put people in a box, I mean the names I’ve been called since I cut my hair.’
‘Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, “Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look like I’m a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse.” I’ve been called much worse,’ she added. ‘Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.’
Take note, trolls: It’s going to take a lot more than that to bring this girl down.
