Miley sat down with the ‘Today Show’ in Australia to discuss her ‘Bangerz’ tour when she was asked about JB’ recent and highly publicized legal issues, including a DUI, vandalism & a racist remarks.
Social media is such a blessing. Everyone’s allowed to have an opinion. I think what’s important — is I think people need to sit and think about the times in their lives that they were not proud of who they were, and imagine if that was completely exploited and everyone had their opinions.
I think people just got to have time to grow up and figure out who they are.
A lot of people who don’t know this life, they would choose fame, because they don’t understand. I guess I was a lot more conscious of it going into it. I knew the ups and downs of it, because I’ve grown up around it. But, you know, at the end of it, it’s just about making music.
