The artist doesn’t approve of the show’s titular message
Miley Cyrus doesn’t appear to be a comics fan, or at least the implications that some shows are spreading with their titles.
The 23-year-old singer has slammed CW’s Supergirl because she believes that “having a show with a gender attached to it is weird.” The star also says it’s misleading as fans might confuse the lead character – who is a grown woman – with a young girl.
She explained to Variety magazine: “I think people will have to realize they’re looking really dated. For example, there’s a show called ‘Supergirl’. I think having a show with a gender attached to it is weird. One, it’s a woman on that f***ing billboard — it’s not a little girl. Two, what if you’re a little boy who wants to be a girl so bad that this makes you feel bad? I think having a title like “Supergirl” doesn’t give the power that people think it does.”
Meanwhile, the star talked about her singing talent and realized she could use it to help change the world following her 2013 VMAs performance. The occasion showed her dancing provocatively with Robin Thicke and it quickly went viral.
She added: “In 2013, when I did the VMAs, it became the biggest story in the world. I never expected that to happen. I just did my own thing. I went out there dressed as a teddy bear, danced with teddy bears, never thought about the world thinking that was going to be a bad thing.
It was making me feel like I was living a dumb life — like I should just pick another job. I didn’t understand my power at that point. People listen because of who I am, so instead of being embarrassed, I should say: ‘F**k yeah, I got the microphone.'”
For the family of the We Can’t Stop singer, however, it isn’t until a fan speaks up that they finally understand what Miley stands for.
She continued: “On ‘The Voice‘, this young girl started crying when she left, because I’m the reason she came out. My mom started crying. She was like, ‘I’m so sorry about the way I was when you were that age and coming out.’ She never understood me until she saw that girl who couldn’t be herself. It was very cool.”
