Miley Cyrus: I'm not a 'conventional role model'

Miley Cyrus doesn't want to be a "conventional role model".

The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker has insisted she "doesn't care" about being a traditional role model for young people to look up to.

When asked why she created the Happy Hippie Foundation, she told Marie Claire magazine: "A lot of us are born into some s**t, you know what I mean? Lately, I've been talking a lot about my being gender-fluid and gender-neutral.

"And some people snarl at that. They want to judge me. People need more conventional role models, I guess. But I just don't care to be that person."

And the 22-year-old beauty previously insisted she was a "good role model" when it comes to teaching others not to judge their peers.

She said: "I'm not the way that people try to make me seem ... I don't go around just trashing hotel rooms and partying, that I'm actually working on, you know, music that I love and being involved in things that I love.

"I can actually say I am [a good role model] for what I know of what is important to teach people - and what is important to teach people is that ... you can't judge other people."
