Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" video is finally upon us, and if I were to take a shot for every time she shakes her bum or sticks her tongue out in it, I'd be too drunk to write this article. Still, it's a nice bum, and hidden within the tripped out, party-themed video — complete with gold teeth, dancing bears, and a pinata full of ... well ... are those hot dogs? — are a few great messages we think grown-up Miley is trying to get across. ...
+ Miley Supports Same-Sex Relationships
Miley believes that love is love, whether it's between a man and woman, a woman and a woman, or a woman and her lookalike barbie doll. But in all seriousness, Miley is a longtime supporter of LGBT rights, and even has the marriage equality equal sign tatted on one of her fingers.

Miley recently addressed Tweeters who put her down saying, "Every day someone with a Swift or Gomez in [their] name wishes terrible things upon me (death is popular).

According to MTV's anti-bullying campaign A Thin Line, 17% of young people have been verbally abused online or via text message. It hurts enough when people don't like our Instagram pics, so just imagine how bad mean Tweets and death threats feel! We can all take control over digital bullying by being kind to others on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites, and politely calling out those who aren't.

Miley's all about education, and recently took part in CBS’ “Real Change: Artists for Education” T.V. special.

Whether or not you approve of Miley's mature new image, there's no denying the pop diva's (yes, she's officially graduated from pop star to diva) positive influence on the world through her philanthropy and open-mindedness.
