Miley Cyrus isn’t trying to prove she’s grown up

Miley Cyrus isn’t trying to make a statement.

The 18-year-old singer and actress insists she isn’t trying to prove that she’s an adult with her grown up music videos and raunchy outfits.

“It’s not about how far I can push things so people will believe I’m not Hannah Montana anymore,” Miley said. “You just make the music that you love and because I’m growing up, you know, so does my music.”

“It’s not about trying to make a statement about growing up. You know … you just do.”

Miley IS 18 – surely she doesn’t have to prove she’s a grown up now?
