Miley Cyrus defends 'goofy' photo

Miley Cyrus has defended a photograph of her slanting her eyes, saying she isn't racist and was just "making a goofy face"

Miley Cyrus has defended a photograph of her slanting her eyes, saying she was just "making a goofy face".

The 16-year-old singer - who has been accused of racism by an Asian American advocacy group after the picture of her appeared on the internet - insists the photo has been misinterpreted.

Miley wrote on her official fansite: "Well, I'm sorry if people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context! In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy?

"It seems someone is trying to make something out of nothing to me. If that was anyone else, it would have been overlooked! I definitely feel like people are trying to make me out as the new 'BAD GIRL'!"

The 'Hannah Montana' actress - who was left red-faced after risque private photos of her were leaked last year - claims she has always apologised for past mistakes and wants people to focus on her career rather than her personal life.

She said: "I feel like now that Britney Spears is back on top of her game again, they need someone to pick on! Lucky me!"

The latest Disney child star to reject their wholesome image and begin the road to rehab, Cyrus tours her latest album Bangerz. Probably whilst twerking.
