Miley Cyrus' Body Rules The Conversation

Miley Cyrus is happily growing up, filling out and flaunting her sexy figure. If you're feeling a bit awkward about having noticed the child star is coming of age, rest easy. She doesn't mind in the least!

Believe it or not, Miley Cyrus claims she did not intentionally set out to become a sex symbol. That's right, the cleavage-baring former child star just happened to turn into one of the red carpet's hottest items.

Still, though Miley Cyrus doth protest the sex symbol label, she's willing to let onlookers far and wide flatter her.

"If people find that [I am a sex symbol], I take it as a compliment," the 19-year-old said during an interview with Lifetime's The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet on Thursday. "Thank you for thinking I'm sexy!"

"People are so scared of seeing a woman being like, 'This is who I am and you're not going to change it,'" Miley Cyrus explained of the reaction to her adult-style attire.

The former Hannah Montana star, who released the single "Can't Be Tamed" before her Disney gig had officially ended, seems to be more comfortable with her own coming of age than the public is.

"Even just the title of that, for a woman to say she can't be tamed… for a woman in the world with my face saying 'I can't be tamed' when that's really all people wanted to do, I think proves how sexist people still really are," the fiancée girlfriend of Liam Hemsworth shared.

Still, Miley Cyrus insists she's learned a lot about who she was then and who she can be now.

"I feel I was so trained in my interviews to be All-American or whatever," she went on to say. "I just got so set in the way of saying the same things I did when I was 12 years old… I guess I kind of realized that my whole life isn't one giant press junket. I don't have to be smiling all the time and always have the perfect answer."

Is Miley Cyrus too sexy, or are we just not willing to let her grow up?

Miley doesn't mind being called a symbol..I'll bet! Problem is she IS NOT ONE! Scarlet is a symbol. Megan is a symbol. Angelina is(was) a symbol. Myley is a little girl with implants trying in desperation to make people see her as a symbol; and where are all the movie offers if she is so "y"..after HM, 'haven't seen her on TV or movies once. Even lohan is getting work again. I see a long pole and glass high heels in this chicks future!

I think it is great that Miley is comfortable in her own skin. But she is still so young! I think she has tried to navigate her transition and be true to herself, but some choices are not as appropriate as others. Did anyone see what she wore the the Billboard awards last night?!

Miley grew up, and hey, there is nothing wrong with growing up. It happens to the best of us :] If Miley feels like she's a woman and she loves her body and wants the world to know it good for her! So many girls (and women) can't accept their bodies as beautiful. They think they have to fix them or change them or modify them to be the standard, but Miley loves her body and doesn't need any one else to validate it. And she's comfortable with how other people see her, but she doesn't base her whole self on it. Power to you girl! And, although there have been some very public bumps in the road, I think she's done a good job moving from child star to adult. There doesn't seem to be a way to grow up in the media without some hiccups (bong-hitting, etc) That's a difficult transition to make, especially for someone so totally in the public eye all the time. It must be hard to have any sort of normal development from a kid to young woman, but she seems to have found her own footing. That’s always nice to see, that being in the public eye doesn't necessarily corrupt your youth.

MILEY CYRUS is a beautiful lady inside & out.She is indepent and a strong personality,Miley showing a true self is good one rather than a fake for a make believe self,where most people does want to see in a person.MILEY fans growing by rhe millions because, they can relate to them in a true sense of the word "reality".So please,people let her be,her true self,rather you a fake one- you like that best frankly.
