Miley Cyrus stripped off (yet again) for the new issues of Rolling Stone, wherein she discussed such deep topics as twerking, mentoring Justin Bieber and… how she apparently knows how to cook meth because she’s seen Breaking Bad a few times. Lovely.
“America is just so weird in what they think is right and wrong. Like, I was watching Breaking Bad the other day, and they were cooking meth.
“I could literally cook meth because of that show. It’s a how-to. And then they bleeped out the word ‘fuck’. And I’m like, really? They killed a guy, and disintegrated his body in acid, but you’re not allowed to say ‘fuck’?
“It’s like when they bleeped ‘molly’ [from 'We Can't Stop'] at the VMAs. Look what I’m doing up here right now, and you’re going to bleep out ‘molly’? Whatever.”
Yes, because a fictional television show is definitely the same thing as a real life “artist” acting like a culture-appropriating asshole on a public stage. Definitely comparable in every way.
I certainly wish celebrities would begin taking responsibility for their own behaviour instead of trying to scapegoat things that in no way relate to their own shit. Seriously.
