In an interview with TIME magazine, Miley spoke on what helped her to accept her single status. "It has a lot to do with being a feminist, but I'm finally OK with being alone," she said. "I think that's something we have to talk about more: that you can be alone."
She continued, "There are times in my life where I've had boyfriends or girlfriends. And there are times where I just love being with myself and don't want to give part of myself away to someone else. I think that's a new freedom for women, especially. I don't know that my mother would have been able to be 22 and secure in being alone."
Preach, Miley. That has to be one of her most self-empowering messages yet. In addition to showing us how feminism can contribute to a better sense of self, Miley's proving that her words of wisdom can attract just as much attention as her wild-child Instagram antics.
