The star says drinking is worse than smoking pot
Stoners across the country have a new spokesperson.
In an interview with Rolling Stone for their July 4 issue, Miley Cyrus is quoted as saying, “I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana—people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don’t care.” The former bubbly pop star now turned rebellious rocker says, “I’ve seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I’ve never seen that happen with weed.”
The actress-singer has undergone scrutiny in the past for reportedly partaking in drug use, a video of her using a bong surfacing in 2010 although she claims she was smoking salvia. However, Cyrus seems to be embracing a stoner status as of late, joking that she smoked too much after her friends gave her a Bob Marley 19th birthday cake and singing a song with Snoop Dogg called “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks.”
Miley cites weed’s legality in California as a justification for its use over alcohol, as since she is only 20 years old, she is still legally unable to drink.
Miley Cyrus Poses with Pot Leaves
Miley Cyrus really should just move to Colorado at this point.
The singer, who has made her affection for marijuana very clear in a couple recent interviews, posted two new photos to Twitter over the weekend.
Both are from an upcoming spread in Notion magazine and both reveal an interesting fashion choice. No, we're not referring to Miley's obvious disdain for pants.
We're talking about the pot leaves adorning her top, as seen here:
This is not the first time Cyrus has sported the leaf as an accessory.
As for why she prefers pot to alcohol, the following video explains this artist's stance on the drug:
Miley Cyrus Claims She Was Fired From 'Hotel Transylvania' For Licking A Penis Cake
Miley Cyrus has had one hell of a month. Firstly, she and Liam Hemsworth were rumored to have separated. Then they confirmed their separation. Then she was photographed making out with fellow Hot Girl Kaitlynn Carter. Then she and Kaitlynn sent a cheeky lil weed bouquet to Kaitlynn's ex Brody Jenner. Then Liam officially filed for divorce. Now, this.
The most recent revelation came shortly after the Kaitlynn pics, as people immediately accused her of having cheated on her husband. Miley ended up taking to Twitter to clarify that she had not&mdashand never would have&mdashcheated on Liam.
And so began an 11-tweet thread beginning with "I can accept that the life I&rsquove chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time."
I can accept that the life I&rsquove chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time. What I cannot accept is being told I&rsquom lying to cover up a crime I haven&rsquot committed. I have nothing to hide.
&mdash Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 22, 2019
After admitting she'd partied hard as a teen (but before getting to the bit about how she "[loves] Liam and always will"), Miley threw this lil guy in there:
I got kicked off hotel Transylvania for buying Liam a penis cake for his birthday and licking it.&mdash Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 22, 2019
Ahead of the 2012 movie, Miley was rumored to be the top pick for the voice of Mavis. In fact, The Hollywood Reporter notes it was a done deal. She was dismissed from the project (which, BTW, has since pulled in more than $1 billion worldwide&mdashthis was no small loss for Miley) in February of that year, though no one ever confirmed why she'd been let go.
Miley says it was because on Liam's birthday of that year, she bought him a penis cake and pictures of her licking it went super viral. An unidentified Sony source tells THR those pictures were, in fact, the reason she was canned. If you're so inclined, you can see the NSFW-ish pictures of Miley and the cake here.
For further context, 2013 was the year Miley showed up and Did Her Thing at those VMAs. She'd spent the two years prior officially (and successfully!) trying to separate herself from her Disney roots. The Transylvania franchise is a Sony one, but at the end of the day, the rep confirmed they were nervous to have her front such a family-friendly project at that time.
Anyway! Selena Gomez ended up taking the role. And here we are today. What a journey.
19 Celebs Who Publicly Show Their Affection for Marijuana
Marijuana is perhaps one of the most common, mainstream drugs in use today. It’s appreciated for its mellowing effects as well as the ways in which it can influence creativity, so it’s perhaps not too radical a statement to say that the relationship between marijuana and various celebrities is very strong. Whether they use it to disconnect from the hectic celebrity lifestyle or smoke to help get the creative juices flowing, there’s no doubt that marijuana and artistic endeavors go hand-in-hand. There are tons of celebrities who have made their love of this groovy, mind-altering drug known. Some have gone on to not only be prolific smokers but also grow their own strains of weed and sell it across the United States.
So, let’s take a look at some of the iconic celebs and some surprising ones who love their bud, shall we?
She Does a Lot of Yoga and Pilates
Miley is a devoted yogi who does some pretty impressive poses on the regular — and shares them on her Instagram for everyone to see. Her preferred practice is Ashtanga yoga, which is known to be quite difficult when you advance in the series, and she usually does two hours of Ashtanga every day. Phew! No wonder her arm balances look so good.
She's also been a Pilates-lover for quite a few years, which helps her keep a flat tummy and long, lean legs.
A Big Business in Getting High
THE artwork for Rihanna’s hit single “Diamonds” features a black-and-white image of the singer’s manicured hands rolling a joint made of diamonds. For the song’s music video, she takes a bedazzled puff.
In “Get It Over With,” a track off her just-released album “Unapologetic” (her seventh album in seven years, but her first Billboard No. 1), she is more direct as she sings: “It’s all right, we can roll in the clouds/ Getting high, we can float in the clouds.”
While performing in Berlin as part of her “777” promotional tour, she wore a mesh tank top from the label Love Leather with a jumbo marijuana leaf emblazoned across her chest.
Become one of the pop star’s millions of followers on Instagram or Twitter (she habitually posts self-pics suggestively exhaling strings of thick smoke, homages to her hero Bob Marley, and humorous stoner memes) and risk a contact high.
At the Coachella music festival in April, paparazzi snapped Rihanna perched on her security guard’s shoulders rolling a spliff — on top of his bald head. When MTV’s official Twitter handle tweeted “Yikes” at the singer, she shot back at the network that she felt no shame about the incident.
Rihanna, 24, is perhaps the most visible marijuana devotee among a number of young female pop stars, but she is not alone. Lady Gaga, 26, is becoming increasingly vocal in her praise of the green stuff to her Little Monsters, smoking it onstage in Amsterdam at a stop of her “Born This Way Ball” tour in September, and promising concertgoers that she would try to persuade Oprah and President Obama on the “medical wonders of marijuana.” On Halloween, she dressed up as Princess High, the Cannabis Queen. (Rihanna was the Bride of Mary Jane.)
Then there is the throwback singer Lana Del Rey, who passes a marijuana cigarette back and forth to a tattooed love interest in the video for her song “Born to Die” while she raspily coos, “Keep making me laugh/Let’s go get high.” And there is the nasally rapper Kreayshawn, 23, whose rise to Internet fame last year was largely because of her bratty frankness about her smoking habits.
Glorifying marijuana has arguably turned out to be shrewd public relations moves for these women, in light of the decriminalization measures that passed in Colorado and Washington State last month. That they’re all women, all under the age of 30, is also nothing to cough at.
“When you look at what went down in Colorado, the dramatic rise in the public’s support of marijuana-law reform is being driven by a large part by an increase in support among women,” said Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, which supports marijuana legalization. “Are there parallels between women being open and honest about cannabis use at the polls on a grass-roots level and some of the most visible women in music today being open and honest about their use in the news? Absolutely.”
Pop precedent goes all the way back to Billie Holiday. In magazine interviews, Barbra Streisand and Alanis Morissette have admitted to recreational use of the drug. Missy Elliott released a stoner anthem, “Pass That Dutch,” in 2003. Melissa Etheridge spoke openly about using medical marijuana after her breast cancer was diagnosed in 2004. Amy Winehouse mentioned her love of “puff” throughout her Grammy-award winning album “Back to Black” in 2006. Last September, Fiona Apple made headlines when she was held in jail in Sierra Blanca, Tex., after local authorities found hashish and marijuana on her tour bus.
Social media has put such revelations front and center.
Last November a video circulated on the Web showing Miley Cyrus, the former Disney star, enthusiastically receiving a Bob Marley birthday cake from her friend Kelly Osbourne for her 19th birthday party. “You know you’re a stoner when friends make you a Bob Marley cake,” Ms. Cyrus exclaims in the clip. After a number of accusations labeling Ms. Cyrus a bad influence, her publicist said the singer was being “sarcastic.”
Ms. Osbourne, on the other hand, took to Twitter to explain clumsily that the whole thing was totally implausible anyway: “If Miley Cyrus is not recording/filming/touring, she works every day. How could she possibly do all that if she was stoner?”
Maybe this kind of spin was unnecessary. Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Ms. Del Rey might be joining a marijuana-culture tradition that formerly only men like Jerry Garcia, Willie Nelson, Snoop Lion (formerly known as Snoop Dogg) and Wiz Khalifa could get away with.
But taking it a step further than those men, they’re seamlessly integrating it into their endorsement deals. In an advertisement for her Pink Friday fragrance, Nicki Minaj can be heard singing the phrase “burn a L,” which is slang for smoking a cigar filled with marijuana, also called a blunt.
A recent picture that Rihanna uploaded to her Instagram shows her wearing a jacket from Chanel, a brand she is often associated with, with her hair flawlessly coifed and an enormous blunt in her hand. In just four days, the image had more than 205,000 likes and 7,000 comments and counting, nearly all in adoration.
And while marijuana remains an illegal substance that can result in serious criminal charges in most states, there hasn’t been much public outcry. “During the Reagan era, this sort of stuff would get you banned from radio,” said Will Hermes, a senior critic for Rolling Stone and author of “Love Goes to Buildings on Fire,” a book about New York City’s pop music history.
Now marijuana “is about as normalized as beer or cocktails, but still enough of an issue politically that it feels like uncharted territory for these women to explore,” he said. “Being a pop star, transgression is good for business. And at this particular moment in American culture, saying you smoke weed is a pretty safe way to transgress.”
Vita Coco, a brand of coconut water that Rihanna has been the face of since 2011, is not just unfazed by its spokeswoman’s transformation into one of her generation’s most famous marijuana users, it actually appreciates the singer’s ability to tap into the movement.
“We knew exactly what we’re getting into when our partnership with Rihanna began,” said Arthur Gallego, a spokesman for the beverage. “We are looking for someone who is dynamic and evolving with culture, whether it’s a sound or a look or a viewpoint. Does her association with marijuana affect our brand? No, no, it does not. There has been no fallout.”
If decriminalization measures continue to pass state by state, could Ms. Del Rey, the current face of H & M, be the next face of THC? How long will it take for a star like Rihanna to land a major cannabis campaign, similar to a partnership between P. Diddy and Ciroc vodka?
“If marijuana gets legalized to the point where it can actually be marketed,” Mr. Hermes said, “then these ladies are really in a good position be on the front line of endorsement deals.”
‘We Can’t Stop’: Miley Cyrus moments we want to unsee
Miley Cyrus debuted the music video for her latest single, “We Can’t Stop,” this week, but that isn’t stopping the Ministry from asking her to stop anyway.
When she isn’t generating gossip fodder with her on-again-off-again engagement to Liam Hemsworth, making quizzical drug innuendos or tirelessly working to besmirch her once squeaky-clean Disney-girl image, she makes music. And music videos.
And this latest one isn’t answering any questions about the former “Hannah Montana” star. It seems to make viewers wonder what shocking thing she plans on doing next, you know, just for the sake of making us go “huh?”
In the wise words of Miss Cyrus, “It’s my mouth, I can say what I want to.” The video debuted Wednesday and already had more than 6.3 million page views by Thursday. (A few were shamefully contributed by this blogger for the purposes of this post.)
It’s no vending-machine cameo in Jimmy Kimmel’s "(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum,” but it definitely has weird written all over it. At least “Tatum” was made as a satire.
So here are few bizarre moments from the video we wouldn’t mind un-seeing.
1. Miley Cyrus writhing around — practically dry humping — a floral comforter while wearing a skin-tight white outfit. And singing.
2. Miley Cyrus making out with a mini-me version of a ventriloquist dummy in a pool. Like with tongue and everything.
3. Miley Cyrus twerking. A lot. Guess what? Her booty jiggles. And she seems pretty happy about it.
4. Miley Cyrus in the same white outfit on a stationary bike, making facial expressions that should be reserved for her fiance.
5. Miley Cryus’ tongue. And all the things it can do.
6. Miley Cyrus in a girl fight.
7. Miley Cyrus getting up close and personal with a lot of girls. In the pool. On the floor. In the gym.
8. Fake fingers being sliced off on a counter like a bundle of carrots. Then they ooze pink goo.
10. Some oddly inappropriate smoke effects strategically placed near crotches.
11. A man gorging himself on sliced white bread.
12. Life-sized versions of stuffed bears — as dance partners.
13. Several disembodied faces: One made out of what appears to be French fries. The other is a white mask-like face that beats and sings along to this lyric: “It’s our party, we can do what we want to.”
Indeed, Cyrus simply does what she wants to and seems to be pretty unapologetic about it. She sings: “Remember only God could judge us, forget the haters ‘cause somebody loves ya.”
The Times’ pop music critic Randall Roberts said the song “seems as if it were written by a ninth-grader imagining her rebellious college sister’s lifestyle,” adding that it “celebrates celebration” and is a “monosyllabic mess” probably designed “for use during sorority parties, strip club dances and bedroom tantrums.”
However, despite this slumber party gone wrong, Cyrus seems pretty excited about her newest piece of work.
“Hearing what you all have to say about the video means to much to me…y’all are making me tear up! #WeCantStopPremiere,” she tweeted Wednesday.
There’s a lyric in the song that has also raised eyebrows. It’s when she says “Dancing with Miley,” but most have been hearing it as “Dancing with molly,” molly being a form of the party drug ecstasy.
“I have an accent!” Cyrus recently told Rolling Stone. “So when I say ‘Miley,’ it must sound like ‘molly,’” she says. “You’re not allowed to say ‘molly’ on the radio, so it obviously says ‘Miley.’ I knew people were gonna wonder what I’m saying in that song.”
But she didn’t put to rest rumors of drug use, instead offering an explanation about her distinctions between substances.
“I did a song with Snoop Dogg called ‘Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,’ so people can put it together for themselves,” she added. “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 posted this one with the caption, “Deez r a few of my favawitttt thangz.”
Her decision to forgo animal products as an act of compassion shouldn’t necessarily be a surprising one for those who follow the star. Cyrus is committed to helping those in the LGBT community and she founded the Happy Hippies Foundation in order to bring awareness to the issues those in the community face as well as to raise funds to aid youth in crises. Showing a deep passion for social issues, it only stands to reason that she’d extend that compassion anywhere that she saw an inequality or injustice.

Don't Guess, Drug Test!
A drug crisis is sweeping America and it's killing our children.
Parents be warned. We have now entered the culture of ''Pharma-geddon.'' Kids are sneaking pills, drinking alcohol, and using illegal street drugs at an alarming rate. Even heroin, once considered the last outpost on the way to junkie-town, is now disturbingly common.
Sadly, today's young people, obsessed with pop culture, may soon head further down this road. Teen mega-sensation Miley Cyrus shamelessly allowed herself to be videotaped smoking from a bong -- not with marijuana, but salvia, a powerful and newly popular hallucinogen.
Almost all drug addicts, as I continually remind my children, start out the same way. They experiment with alcohol and marijuana as teenagers. Unfortunately, no one can tell which teenagers will hold the line at experimentation, and which will become full-blown addicts. Parents like to think, "Not my child. My child is too busy, too smart, or too into sports." This kind of thinking is a mistake. Denial can kill your child. Yes, kill.
I have seen the dangers of drugs first hand. I've sat next to my children at the funerals of wonderful young people whose lives were lost to accidental overdoses. Teaching children to ''just say no," crossing our fingers, and saying a prayer is not enough. Nothing compares to the grief of losing a child. We owe it to children to do everything in our power to protect them.
An alarming new report by The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that one in five teens -- 20 percent -- is now abusing prescription drugs. Parents of teenagers must remain vigilant and should never assume they can slack. When our children were babies, we didn't question whether they would fall down the stairs or put a fork in a light socket. We baby-proofed the house. With teenagers, our job as protectors does not end. We must still anticipate the possibility that a teenager will use poor judgment. It's a teen's nature to test the boundaries, and it's our job as parents to stay hot on their heels and catch them before they fall.
Turning a blind eye is a sure-fire recipe for disaster. As parents our first line of defense starts at home by keeping prescription medications and alcohol locked up. It's much harder to monitor children outside our homes but thankfully, there is a product that can helps us do just that. It's a simple to use, home drug-testing kit that can detect multiple substances including marijuana, alcohol, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, methamphetamine, benzodiazepines, heroin, LSD and Ecstasy.
It is best to begin drug testing long before any drug temptation or experimentation ever takes place. Around your child's thirteenth birthday, pick up a dozen home drug tests and display them on your counter. Have a sit-down conversation with your child, discussing the dangers of drug experimentation.
Tell them how much you love them. Explain that you have a responsibility to do everything in your power to protect them -- including sending them to a lock down boarding school, if that is what it takes to keep them off drugs. Then let your child know that, starting right now, and continuing as long as you support them, you will be giving them random drug tests. This will shock them, annoy them, and perhaps even embarrass them. Good. They need to know you mean business when it comes to drugs. Assure them that this is not about trust -- it's about doing your job. Explain that clean tests will allow for more freedom, and will give you more peace of mind. Then give the test on the spot. It should come up clean, and your bold stance will give them plenty to talk about with their friends.
Give one of the follow-up tests on a day when your teen has a few friends over as witnesses. That way, when peer pressure tempts your child, it makes an easier out for your teen. ''No, it's not worth it. I get drug tested." Friends will know this is absolutely true. And, for goodness sake, don't stop when tests continually show up clean. That's the point. Keep doing it. Your teenager may still sneak and try alcohol and drugs, but if you do your job with consistent, periodic drug testing, your child will not travel down the road to addiction -- not while you're on duty.
Addiction is a lifetime commitment we don't want our children to make. It can be an uncomfortable subject to bring up, but drug education needs to start early. Once we fully comprehend the life-ruining effects of drug abuse, the awkward factor melts away. Armed with love and information, we can talk openly with our kids about addiction. It may be the most important dialogue we will ever have with our teens.
