Shailene Woodley has defended “Wrecking Ball” singer Miley Cyrus from concerned parents who usually raise their brows at the sight of the former Disney star’s racy antics, MTV has learned.
It’s always nice to hear when a celeb defends a co-celeb, and this time its rising star Shailene Woodley who has come to rescue controversial actress-singer Miley Cyrus from all of her bashers comprising concerned parents for the most part.
The “Fault In Our Stars” actress, who plays cancer-stricken Hazel in the movie, is gracing Vanity Fair’s July issue, and in an interview for the magazine’s cover story, the 22-year-old celeb has strongly defended Miley’s more often than not risqué antics.
“Miley isn’t rude or mean or cruel to anyone in her actions,” Shailene said.
“She just does herself. And regardless of whether you agree with what she’s doing or not, it’s none of your business what she does. She’s not in the world doing mean things,” the “Divergent” star added.
Having known that most of Miley Cyrus’ bashers are concerned parents, Shailene continued by asking, “Why are all these parents or all these people freaking out about Miley being herself?”
“If you don’t want your kids to watch it, you know, you can change that situation at home, but don’t make a big deal of what she’s doing. Make a big deal about the bullies at school who are beating kids up,” Woodley resumed.
In the same interview, Shailene also gave props to Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, according to Inquisitr.
“Her music has sort of been throughout my entire life. [Fleetwood Mac] was always a part of something I listened to. And I also just love sort of who she is and that there’s no one in the world like Stevie Nicks,” Woodley said.
“She was never the next anything. She was the first and only Stevie Nicks, and she was brave and she was strong, and she was her, no matter what that meant. She was her,” she added.
Shailene isn’t the only one who has been very vocal in defending Miley Cyrus from her bashers.
Country singer and godmother to the former “Hannah Montana” star, Dolly Parton, has also been very expressive in defending Miley.
“She’s a great talent, Miley, who I’ve known ever since she was a tiny little baby,” Parton told BBC Radio 1 Breakfast show host Nick Grimshaw recently, as per a Digital Spy report.
“She’s always been smart and quick and she is so gifted and I really, really hope she does great in this world of show business, and I believe she will,” Parton chimed.
“I believe she’s gonna make the right choices, she’s had to go a little drastic now and then just to prove her point, but I’ve got a lot of faith in her and I’m hoping she does great ‘cos she is gifted and special,” the country singer dished. “You know her comedic timing is very good, so she’s got all the goods – I’m just hoping she uses all of it well.”
