You Can Take A Class On Miley Cyrus Now

By

You can now take a college course on Miley Cyrus. Seriously. Get the details.
 

Apparently there's sociological lessons behind Miley Cyrus' naked body, twerking habit, coated tongue and cultural appropriation. A sociology course is being offered at Skidmore College, so you, too, can specialize in Cyrus.

The course promises to teach students about "the rise of the Disney princess," child star transitions to adulthood, what happens specifically to Disney stars as they age (think Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and more), queerness, bisexuality and their relation to the human (and female) body, as well as their relationship to Cyrus herself. No word on whether or not the course will teach about her relationship with Liam Hemsworth!

There's a Miley Cyrus sex lesson that we hope the sociology class actually touches upon: Back in 2012, Cyrus was a guest on The Conversation and was both candid and mature about sex (whereas now she's just the former). "It used to be, 'If you're a woman, you do not sing about sex.' And now, if that's not what you’re singing about, if that's not your entire image, you won’t get played," she said. "I put out 'Can't Be Tamed,' which -- even just the title of that, for a woman to say that she can't be tamed, and of all people in the world, my face saying 'I can'’t be tamed,' when that’s all people really wanted to do -- I think that proves how sexist people still really are," she continued. "And judgmental. It's the whole thing of saying 'Be sexy, but our way.'"

(Of course, now Cyrus is basing her entire image on superficial ideas of sex and smoking weed, which we're sure Skidmore will focus on.)

Cyrus also was keen to point out the perils of sexism in the industry as well as in life as a whole. "The girls that really base how much they're worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody, that makes me really sad," she said. "Because sex is actually really beautiful. It's the only way we create, and it's the only way the world keeps going."

The "Adore You" singer also had her mind of sex education. "It's ignorant not to talk to your kids about it or not make it seem as magical or cool as it actually is. Kids have a TV, so they know what sex is. So educate them and let them know that it's a beautiful thing, and it is magic, and it's when you connect with somebody. And it isn't how much you're worth. Your worth isn't based on that, your worth is based on how you feel about yourself."

Anyone else think the pre-twerking Miley Cyrus should teach a class of her own? And maybe sit in on it when she tries so hard to be sexy now?
