MILEY CYRUS is defending her recent wild behavior by reasoning that “going crazy” is a healthy part of growing up.

Miley has always been quite the wild child, but her recent antics—which includes pretending to do oral sex on a penis-shaped birthday cake, getting grabby with strippers, hanging out with sex dolls, smoking weed in public, doing really racy photo shoots, going commando under all her outfits, and referencing drugs in her songs—have all the celebrity gossip websites wondering why she’s acting so out of control.

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Miley explains:

“I think people forget what it feels like to be 20. People just evolve and that’s all that’s happened to me… But people think a mad scientist somehow cooked up this potion and turned me in to a different human, which it wasn’t. All I did was get a haircut and buy some clothes and everyone thinks that I am made into a robot that changes with what’s popular every 10 years.”

She then talks about how people need to give themselves time to act like a “mess” while they’re still young, to prevent having a nervous breakdown later on in life. The “We Can’t Stop” singer adds:

“That’s why I think some people kind of fall off and they end up going crazy because you don’t give yourself time to go crazy.”

Miley continues:

“That’s what you’re supposed to do; you are 20, you are supposed to be a mess because you haven’t figured it out yet, and 10 years from now I am supposed to have it all together.”

Do you agree with Miley, or do you think she’s just making excuses for her questionable behavior?
