Make way for Bob Miley!
Miley Cyrus is making headlines again, and her image could be going to pot! In an interview with Rolling Stone, the 20-year-old pop star gave her two cents on the topic of marijuana, saying, "I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,' so people can put it together for themselves. 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."
She also added, "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."
It's not the first time the former "Hannah Montana" star has expressed her opinion on marijuana.
In 2011, a video surfaced of Miley's 19th birthday, when friends presented her with a Bob Marley birthday cake. "You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much f---ing weed," she said in the video, obtained by The Daily.
Pal Kelly Osbourne chimed in with: "I thought salvia was your problem, Miley."
Osbourne was referring to a leaked TMZ video of her BFF taking a bong hit of the legal herb salvia, an incident that had the Disney star later telling Marie Claire, "I made a mistake ... I'm disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans. For me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for."
But in 2012, X17 Online posted a pic of Miley making a pit stop with a pal at a medical marijuana facility in North Hollywood.
And earlier this year a picture turned up on Instagram which appeared to show the pop star smoking a joint. The caption read: "High as f---." Cyrus denied posting the pic, later tweeting: "I don't have an Instagram. Why is everybody trippin. My timeline is blowing up. Everything's all good in my life just in a creative space right now."
But the former teen queen has also shed her good girl image in other ways. The cover to her new single "We Can't Stop" shows the pop star wearing a super skimpy monokini, while the song features suggestive lyrics like "shaking it like we at a strip club" and "we can kiss who we want, we can screw who we want."
The singer explained the song's meaning on Ryan Seacrest's radio show. "Everyone always judges and says what they want, but my fans…have really stood by me no matter what I've been through…and this is a song that says where I'm at in my life right now," she said.
