#WeCantStop loving Miley!
Following the release of the trippy video for “We Can’t Stop”, Miley chatted with Rolling Stone chatted about a host of topics, including her vocal advocacy for gay rights. (Remember how she got that marriage equal sign tattooed on her finger?)
“I’m very liberal for a Southerner, so when I go back home, I’m like a complete alien. But my grandad [Ron Cyrus] was a Kentucky legislator and a Democrat. He was all about doing good: white, gay, straight, it didn’t matter,” the 20-year-old said. “So that’s embedded in my blood.”
“One day. my kids are gonna be like, ‘What do you mean, gay people couldn’t get married?’ Just like most of my friends are black, and I find it hard to believe that my great-grandmother and even my grandmother couldn’t hang out with black kids when they were young.”
She’s a smart girl.
Miley was also asked about the rumors of her split to fiancée Liam Hemsworth: “I wear a ring every single day. I don’t talk about my personal life, so that’s enough of an answer.”
She gets back to “political” topics, and talks about why weed is better than booze when asked if she’s a stoner:
“I did a song with Snoop Dogg called ‘Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,’ so people can put it together for themselves,” she says. “I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana – people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don’t care. I’ve seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I’ve never seen that happen with weed.”
Marijuana users tend to be more laid-back, Miley observes, noting, “As long as it isn’t illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it’s legal in the state of California. So I’m happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be.”
