Miley Cyrus wasn't born yet when Salt-N-Pepa blessed the world with their single "Let's Talk About Sex," but the 19-year-old former Disney star did 'em proud during a recent appearance on “The Conversation” with Amanda de Cadenet.
As the show's meant to replicate an open and honest, well, conversation, when the topic turned to sex Cyrus wasn't bashful.
"[It used to be] if you're a woman you do not sing about sex, and now, if that's not what you're singing about, if that's not your entire image, you won't get played," she told de Cadenet, adding that she's seen the industry's judgmental stance on women and sexuality firsthand.
"The last season of ['Hannah Montana'] I put out 'Can't Be Tamed' - which, even just the title of that, for a woman to say that she can't be tamed, and of all people in the world, my face saying I can't be tamed, when that's all people really wanted to do - that I think proves how sexist people still really are and judgmental," she said. "It's the whole thing of saying 'be sexy, but our way."
Mixed messages are trickling down to girls her age, and Cyrus lamented that some young women are equating having sex with having value.
“The girls that really base how much they’re worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody, that makes me really sad,” Cyrus said. “It’s the only way we create, and it’s the only way that the world keeps going. So it’s ignorant not to talk to your kids about it or [not] make it seem as magical or cool as it actually is.”
The teen singer/actress places the blame with those parents who are tight-lipped about sexuality.
“[Kids] have a TV, so they know what sex is,” she explained. “So educate them and let them know that they wouldn't be here without it, and that it’s a beautiful thing, and it is magic, and it’s when you connect with somebody. And it isn’t how much you’re worth. Your worth isn’t based on that, your worth is based on how you feel about yourself.”
It's in reality a great and helpful piece of information. I am glad that you just shared this helpful information with us. Please stay us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.
Say, does Miley have anything to do with the Fashion Fantasy Game? I heard rumors that she does. That's a cool game anyway.
White trailer trash, just like her one-hit wonder of a daddy. In a couple years they can change her name to Mileage.
I don't like her music. I never liked her dads music. I think that most of the crap out now is sh!t. With that being said she made very valid points. Yes it could be for press but they were valid. And to honest many of you people are dumber that 10 b!thces on a b!tch boat.
I'm remembering her pole dancing during a particular performance, and thinking she's being a bit hypocritical.
So she got boned. Congrats Miley.
She will be menopausal one day – her statement will change.
she beautiful...... and i like mahmond ahmadinejad
She makes good point, i agree with her. Parents u better listen to her especially if you have daughters, this coming from someone in mainstream gen y world. u better listen or your daughter might be the next neighborhood hoe.
How can she talk with her mouth if full?
Give her a break she's in love and singing sweet love songs. Wait a little while after they're married and we'll see if she starts writing punk rock songs and setting up mosh pits.
This doesn't surprise me - coming from an immature little girl who was pole dancing in front of other kids before she was barely old enough to drive.
She's a brazen little hussy.
So you'd rather our kids go find out about these things on their own? That to me seems dumb and naive.
Somebody's been watching too much porn. Lay off pervert.
Somebodys been watching too much porn. Lay off and get a girlfriend, pervert.
Yes, she is. Mwahahahahaha >:D
She can also pick up Coke bottles without using her hands.
Actually, it's just a body function. Magic does not exist.
Why doesn't she just announce she found her G spot on Facebook like everyone else?
Hey Billy Ray,
How's that child star idea going?
Shall we have a vote? Spit or Swallow?
I guess everyone who is commenting were sweet little virgin angels at age 19. Give me a break! She has matured tremendously and has thoughtful words to share. Haters!!
id be very proud of her
I was a virgin at 19 and at 20 and at 21 and at 22
@daisy u were probly also 275 lbs. at 19 20 21 and 22.
'Thoughtful'? How about just making young, dumb and full of *** comments? Because that's what it is. I like how these young kids are able to drum up such moving and emotional songs about life and love...yet truly be only about 15 years of any cogniscent thinking. Wow, what sages of life they are. Why don't you stop following so mindlessly after who the media moguls tell you to follow?
Liam must be giving it to her good!
Uh Oh! Where was Daddy when all of this was going on?
It sounds like she's speaking from experience. So she's not a virgin anymore???? I'm stunned .... stunned I tell ya!!!!!!! lol
“So educate them and let them know that they wouldn't be here without it, and that it’s a beautiful thing, and it is magic"
It's even more MAGICAL when you get put in a doggy style...and get DP'd.......all to the tune of a nice MONEY shot ending right in that pretty little face and mouth....yeah thats right lick it all up Miley!
Well I hate to admit that I would put in her ear if she would ask me to. So I agree with her feel free expirement and track me down because I would put it in ever hole in he small body!
Okay first thing's first. Just because you are from the south does not mean you are a "hillbilly" or a "redneck". Yeah, we might have accents but that does not mean we're stupid so please stop being so ignorant. And two, don't hate on her just because she made some bad choices. We all do and you're lying to yourself if you say you have not. Do I agree with everything she does? No, but it's not my place to judge her because only the good Lord can do that. I hope she has a great marriage.
Higher teen preg. rates. Higher crime. Lower test scores. Higher poverty. Most of the population thinks magical sky people are real.
Yeah, actually the statistics say you ARE more likely to be stupid if you live in the south.

You learn as you go; nothing more, nothing less. I dislike criticism for the sake of criticism, which is what most people do these days because they can do so anonymously. Solutions, not spouting off problems would be a good start to cure any ill. My solution; educate your kids and yourself. Read, read, read and read some more; doesn't matter what it is, just read and educate yourself and your kids.
Even 40-50 year old hollywood actors say and do moronic things.
tom cruise going crazy on oprah?
and you expect anything more from an immature 19 year old, hormone driven media hound?
Seems to me, just like your compulsive need to post your opinion here, she just wants to be heard. Difference is: she't not criticizing or complaining about you.
MAYBE u need to get laid, lol, i agree its magical and beautiful
Never seen her performance, but many of the posts here suggest an epidemic of some mental disorder involving hatred, envy, insecurity, pettiness and general a$$holishness. Am I missing something here, but aren't you all talking about a 19-year-old young woman? What's happening?
I bet she drinks the man made protein shakes if you know what I mean.
She is going to have a baby, he didnt pull soon enough.
What a sloot, her dad should be ashamed he raised a pig that looks like a man in drag with a mouth of a trucker.
Well, we know you are, but what is she?
I remember when one of my co-workers called her "All-American" and "such a good girl", simply from watching her on t.v. At the time, I remember thinking, "Wait a few years until she shows her real self." Well, I guess that time has arrived.
Her "real self"? You mean the grown adult who is engaged? Yeah you're right. Her committed relationship and honesty make her a horrible role model
Teenagers say and think dumb things. I know I did. I am glad I didn't have a medium to broadcast my teenage thoughts across.
a major medium like TV*. I broadcast stuff in my speech, blogs, and writings.
I second that, except I'd extend my dumb thoughts into my early 20s.
A 19-year old no talent celebrity giving parenting advice? It's not our fault your hillbilly father sold you to Hollywood.
Billy Ray taught her about the birds and bees in the traditional hillbilly sense.
You saying' Billy "test drove" her himself?!
That is funny!!!
Looks like someone was a beaver in their past life.
She is not famous for her talent, in fact without her father she would be another nobody, i don't mind this, what i mind is when people begin to think they are special just because they are lucky.
It's not so beautiful when you involve your dog, Miley!
I WANTED TO DO HER 5 YEARS AGO!!!!
At 14? I don't think I'd have told that one, Joe....
Looks like daddy's little girl is not as sweet and innocent as she wants her daddy to believe.
Wow Mike really, she is 19, are you a pedophile?
I wish some girl would try to prove her worth to me too.
What she means is that she is a ho' and is advertising it...
Miley really likes orgasms.
bony clavicle, manly eyebrows and all.......I would still bang her, cause she is 19. Got to now b4 she starts looking like her dad.
@ Mom to be Here is your mature post: "STFU a**hole." I feel sorry for your child to be. When did you drop out of school?
@BosMonkey... shut up already. YOU'RE pathetic, since all you seem to be able to add to the discussion are banal insults.
her collar bones look FRAGILE
i'm pregnant so i am going to pretend to get engaged but really we are already planning our marriage before my belly gets huge. OOPSIES
Wow, what is up with all the hate filled rants? She is a beautiful, talented young lady who is wealthier than most and now engaged to a handsome young man. Her comments are very mature for someone so young and I wish her and her husband to be nothing but happiness.
I still see those false teeth falling out during that interview...I cannot get IT OUT OF MY HEAD!
Good Lord !!!.... i could drive semi tractor truck across those eyebrow's...can you imagine waking up to those without
her face on.... after an all night bender with her.
Picky Picky.....I think she is great looking.....
Shortly after making that "beautiful and magical" comment, she gets engaged. Sounds like a clinger to me. I give the marriage 6 months max.
very well if you think she's hot.. lol.. she sounds like a fool to me..
This girl is an idiot....what's the over/under on their upcoming divorce?
I'm guessing they won't even make it down the aisle.
My wife and I agree that Miley is hot and that we'd both do her.
You and your wife have some poor taste. She is some nasty.
Remember back when she was beautiful, intelligent and talented?
Neither do I
And why wouldn't we listen to what this young lady has to say? After all, she must be an authority on the subject, at all of 19 years old.
She disgust me.... and that's an understatement!!
has she had it with anyone other than her mullet wearing father yet?
That's an ironic statement coming from a Southern Yokel. Project much?
Your name implies that you have some knowledge about the south. You tell us.
She's right, it is beautiful and magical ... unless it takes place while rip-roaring drunk with some chick you picked up at a bar. Then it's not beautiful or magical; just bone-bending awesome.
The real hero is Bristol Palin.
Drew – best response ever.
I'm glad to hear her opinion on the matter. Otheriwise, i wouldn't have any thoughts on the topic of my own.
do you think she does anal? mmmmm i just came thinking abou that
What the hell is the matter with you people? I must admit i don't know anything about this young woman's career but here her arguments seem level headed and mature. What is it about the internet that allows everybody to be a complete jack-ass.
I was wondering the same thing............
miley is an idiot like her father
Warren Buffet is an old Fraud and an Antique.
Warren Buffet is hot, and you know it!
Miley is Grand.
She is a winner.
Wasn't she the trashy looking girl in the white jacket @ the billboard awards? Hmm... Is she really the one young children should be listening to? "Do as I say, not as I do" seems to be her motto, lol!
@hey You're PATHETIC.
i never really thought it before but she is becoming fah-hucking hot...maybe it's just that she's gotten really trashy. Daddy like.
Mom to be is just another dumb b.i.t.ch. Good luck with ur soon to be ugly az kid u fat heiffer
@Sddd – You're PATHETIC.
It seems like she's giving us – teenagers an advice. No funny.
Parenting advice from a teenager. Perfect.
@Samantha Why not? Most parents suck at their job at actual parenting these days. She sounds more mature, attentive and smarter than a lot of parents. Besides, teens tend to listen to their idols than their parents anyway. I say, "Good for her".
She is just a trash! no talent , so has to sell herself somehow!
@Alina You're just another one of those jealous people because she's hot, talented and wealthy.
As long as their cats are shrimp free and smelling clean
Life lessons from Miley Cyress? Right.

Very true. Miley has a good view of the situation :)
It's worth a lot to some dudes, ya know what I'm sayin? I bet I could charge plenty fo a "happy ending" wit you Miley! My girls pull in a G a night, and ain't none of em famous like you! I know there's plenty o dudes out there would pay a hondo just for your worn panties!
Someone needs to teach her how to care for those bushy eye brows!
Why do "Beauticians" always want to pluck the heck out of eyebrows and then draw them back in. As long as they are shaped up, as hers are, they look fab.
Few things are uglier than when women pluck their eyebrows and draw them back in. It's so obvious.
When one of those women gets in my face and yells at me, I think about rubbing them off and drawing slanty angry ones in their place with a Sharpie. Makes me laugh every time.
I'd Fu<k her g0d d@mn brains out.
I'd leave her brains in so I could come back and do her again!
Thank you for your honesty Miley.
She's a young beautiful lady! May God bless her on her career!
I guess this is an indicator of her next song. It's called "Do Me".
Actually, it will probably be called "Daddy Did Me; Who's Next?". She is a redneck after all.
