Miley Cyrus Posts Topless Picture To Support ‘Free The Nipple’ Campaign

Miley Cyrus Posts Topless Picture To Support 'Free The Nipple' Campaign

Miley Cyrus is going topless in a bid to draw attention to the media’s double standard when it comes to female nudity.

The 21-year-old singer tweeted a picture of herself raising her shirt to show her bare chest, with two red hearts with the words “Merry Christmas” strategically placed to cover her up.

“Merry Christmas ❤️❤️ THANK YOU NY for being one of the few states to @freethenipple,” Miley wrote, making reference to the independent documentaryFree the Nipple, which questions media censorship of female nudity compared to the lack of censorship for violence against women.

Miley Cyrus has taken on the issue of censorship in the past, noting the media’s double standard when it comes to nudity.

“America is just so weird in what they think is right and wrong. Like, I was watching Breaking Bad the other day, and they were cooking meth. I could literally cook meth because of that show. It’s a how-to,” she told Rolling Stone in September. “And then they bleeped out the word ‘f–k.’ And I’m like, really? They killed a guy, and disintegrated his body in acid, but you’re not allowed to say ‘f–k’? It’s like when they bleeped ‘molly’ at the VMAs. Look what I’m doing up here right now, and you’re going to bleep out ‘molly’? Whatever.”

Free the Nipple has struggled to gain a wide release in theaters, carrying a NC-17 rating from the MPAA. To pick up word of mouth, director Lina Esco has taken to other grassroots methods, including crowdfunding and tweets from people like Miley Cyrus.

Miley Cyrus has been no stranger to controversy this year — and no stranger to baring her body, either. She has turned in a number of controversial performances, including an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards in which she twerked on stage against singer Robin Thicke wearing little more than a bra and shorts.

Her popular music video for the song “Wrecking Ball’ also featured Miley naked riding a giant swinging ball, and a photo shoot for her Rolling Stone interview showed Miley Cyrus naked in various poses.

    Why can't that creature keep her d@mn tongue in her mouth? Her views on censorship might be taken more seriously if she didn't always make that ridiculous ugly face.
