Former Disney star Demi Lovato recently spoke out to defend Miley Cyrus, who constantly faces public criticsm.
During her interview, Demi explained that the public doesn’t really know Miley or herself, adding that all of the former Disney stars have grown up and are not the same people they were as newcomers.
“I guess my transition was a little easier because I went straight to rehab.” Demi said on breaking out of her Disney days. “I didn’t twerk – I just went to rehab.”
She continued: “You know what, I think the world needs to get over the fact that [Miley] was Hannah Montana when she was 16.
Demi added that it’s not just Miley who is not the same as she was during her Disney days, saying: “Nobody knows her, nobody really knows who I am, and the same with Selena [Gomez] and Jonas [Brothers] and everyone that has grown up in front of the public eye. We’re adults now.”
As for Miley’s new controversial stage persona, Demi said: “I think she knows what she’s doing.”
“A lot of artists take that route of shock value and that’s fine, but I think she has such an incredible voice that’s overshadowed by some of the things that she’s doing. I’ll always love her – she’s been one of my friends since I was 14.
“Everyone is on their different journeys and she’s having fun, she’s being who she is – so power to her.” Demi said.
Taking a break from her tour, Miley Cyrus brought the party with her as she hit the stage at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday (June 21) to perform during the 2014 Capital Summertime Ball.
Dressed in a silver crop top and skirt embellished with flowers, Miley was all smiles as she performed some of her biggest hits, while surrounded by her backup dancers, floating giant ducks and her old dog Floyd, and her little sister Noah Cyrus in a cat costume.
During her time on stage, Miley performed a bunch of songs including Bangerz, Love, Money, Party, We Can’t Stop, Wrecking Ball, 4×4 and Party in the USA!
Miley also updated her instagram with some fun pics from her performance! Check them out below along with some videos of her performance!
If there’s anything Miley Cyrus can relate to Justin Bieber with, it’s the difficulties of growing up in the spotlight, where your every move is constantly analyzed by the public.
After undergoing much criticism by the public for his behaviour, Miley has spoken out in Justin’s defence in a recent interview on the Today Show.
“I think people should have time to grow up and figure out who they are,” Miley said about Justin.
“I think people need to sit and think of the times in their lives they were not proud of who they were. Imagine if that was completely exploited and everyone had their opinions.”
Things have gotten even more difficult for young stars now that social media has blown up, giving everyone online a voice of their own. However, Miley still supports social media for giving everyone a voice, saying:
“Social media is such a blessing. Everyone is allowed have an opinion.”
On Friday (June 13), singer Miley Cyrus reached out to support a young fan Caley Camarillo, who was battling cystic fibrosis at only 12 years old.
Miley reportedly sent Caley an uplifting video message, hoping to brighten Caley’s spirits. When Caley received the video, Miley tells Caley she’s still praying for her, but Caley sadly passed away just a few hours after watching the video.
“I would really like to express how then and now Miley showed Caley such compassion,” Caley’s mother Teresa wrote on her Facebook. “I want everyone to know that it was I that decided to make the video public. Miley and I were communicating privately, and she did not send the video over YouTube, Facebook or Twitter. This was a private discussion between her and I, and she wanted to send Caley some words of encouragement. I myself didn’t know when the video came in that we were only an hour away from losing our previous daughter. No matter what Miley does in her life has no impact on mine, but what she did for my daughter is remarkable and that’s what I will hold in my heart forever.”
A few days later, Miley continued to show her support for her young fan, dedicating her concert on Sunday to Caley.
