Miley Cyrus has a message to bring to the masses, especially the up and coming generation. Though the former Disney star isn't exactly shilling lollipops and canned laughter these days, she still considers herself an educator for kids.

"I want this to be a pretty high-end tour," The Daily Mail quotes the thong-munching songstress as explaining when asked about the goal of her Bangerz tour. "I want it to be like good art."

"I am excited to go to places where people are usually not exposed to too much good art. It can be a good education for the kids who come to my concert."

The 21-year-old daughter of country star Billy Ray Cyrus went on to share, "I want to show people that music can not only be entertaining but educational as well."

"Maybe people don't think of me first when it comes to education, but I might surprise a couple of people… I like to experiment. I like to try new things. I don't understand what most girls are wearing today. I find it boring," she said.

The young lady who pulled a "Lewinsky" during her tour opener went on to inquire, "Why don't younger children try to be more risqué? I like it when you find a style that can be your own personal style."

Acknowledging that there will always be some who can't let go of her child star past, Cyrus shared, "Look, I am not the little girl any more. I think everybody knows that by now. I want to be my own person, I want to change all the time to become a better artist, a better person. I work my a** off, and I like who I am."

And if you hope to cozy up to the supposed girlfriend of Jared Leto? You best brush up on your honesty.

"I am a pretty honest person. I like people who don't lie to me," the "Wrecking Ball" singer explained. "And I want to laugh. So, if you are funny, and you can make me laugh, you are good in my book. I don't have that many friends."

Would you let your kids listen to Miley Cyrus' message? Why or why not?
