Miley Cyrus: Your Kids Used to Love This Girl. Now She Advocates Drug Use and Twerking On Married Men.

MyCy (Get it? Short for Miley Cyrus?) was once a beloved Disney star. She starred as the sugary-sweet Hannah Montana on the show of the same name. She made millions of fans - and dollars - through her on screen persona. And now, she's twerking on Robin Thicke and advocating heavy drug use...but not coke, because that's gross, y'all!

That's right. Miley Cyrus has some strong opinions on drugs, and she really wants to share them with all of the youths that used to idolize her as Hannah Montana.

In case you were curious, here's where Miss Miley stands on her drug types:

Coke is gross. Why? Because it's gross and dark and from the 90s. So coke is bad. Okay, that's cool. The reasoning's a bit off but alright, I'll take it.

Here's where we go astray, per UsWeekly:

In new outtakes from her recent Rolling Stone interview (which accompanied her topless cover shoot), the ex-child star raves that "weed is the best drug on earth," especially compared to cocaine. MDMA -- a.k.a. Molly -- also gets a big thumbs up from the former Hannah Montana actress.
"One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon," Cyrus tells Rolling Stone contributing editor Josh Eells. "Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And Molly, too. Those are happy drugs -- social drugs. They make you want to be with friends. You're out in the open. You're not in a bathroom."

So...here's where Miley draws the line - if you're doing drugs in the bathroom, they're bad. But if you do them in public, they're A-okay! I like, totally get it now. Oh, wait, no, no I don't. But nice try.

Also, Miley's song We Can't Stop, which is openly about doing drugs (remember how she claimed the lyrics were 'dancing with Miley' but changed her tune once her song got radio airplay that it was really 'dancing with Molly'?) references lining up in the bathroom...so at that time, she must have been into bathroom drugs as well, right?

I can't claim that Miley truly has an obligation to be a role model for her former Hannah Montana fans because she really doesn't, but wouldn't it be nice if she would be? I'm not saying she should be 100% wholesome, because really, nobody is, but it would be cool if she could continue to show teenagers that they can be anything they want to be in a positive way. Create your edgy music, push the envelope with your dancing...but do it in a classy and creative way that'll make you a positive icon for everyday people and future performers alike.

Also in the drug-loving Us Weekly article, Miley says her latest music video (Wrecking Ball) is inspired by Sinead O'Connor's Nothing Compares 2 U video, and she hopes that one day someone will be inspired by her video and use that to create their own. I kind of seriously hope not, being that I'm clearly not the biggest Miley fan, and we shouldn't be rewarding someone who so openly supports negative decisions.
