Miley Cyrus: The internet is more damaging than smoking pot

Miley Cyrus has declared she is a fan of weed on more than one occasion, and the singer reiterated this fact during a recent interview with the Australian TV show Sunday Night, where she compared the effects of smoking pot and using social media.

Cyrus explained that when you compare the effects that social media has on someone to the effects that smoking weed has, the former is far more damaging.

"I put some picture of me smoking weed on my Instagram because I was brought up in the way that we never thought marijuana was bad," Cyrus explained to Sunday Night.

"You know what hurts your brain?" Cyrus declared during the interview. "Googling yourself. You know what hurts your brain? Instagram. You know what hurts your brain? Reading comments on Facebook. You know what hurts your brain? Reading Us Weekly."

This is not the first time the "Wrecking Ball" hit maker has spoken about her use of marijuana as she previously told Rolling Stone that she thought alcohol was a much more harmful drug. "I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana," she said. "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."

However, it was not just the effects of social media and marijuana that were on Cyrus' mind during the interview. She also compared herself to the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley.

"He was like sex. He was a symbol of sex but no one would have ever called Elvis shit because he wasn't a girl. It's that double standard and I think I'm doing something for the double standard," Cyrus confessed.

"Elvis, he wasn't wearing the outfits I was wearing but he was coming out and he was doing like the OG twerking. Like, no one wants to admit that he was twerking, he was."

While Cyrus may want to change the double standards for women in the industry, she doesn't think of herself as a role model for young girls.

"I don't put myself up on a pedestal and say 'look at me I'm an example.' The only thing I'm an example of is freedom, especially in this time where the energy of the world is shifting from male energy to female energy."
