New Delhi, Apr 9 (ANI): Miley Cyrus has blasted her critics, insisting that she's very smart.
The 16-year-old Disney sensation had done a "Vanity Fair" cover shot last June in which she was draped only in a bed sheet. The pic, however, didn't go down well with parents. They complained that it was an inappropriate move for the schoolgirl star their young daughters idolize, reports The China Daily.
Then there were personal pictures of her leaked on the Internet showing a strip of her green bra.
More recently, a snapshot of her making "slant eyes" prompted an Asian group to say it was "mocking and denigrating" to people of Asian descent.
Now, the stunner has hit back at her critics, saying: "I'm like, I'm smarter than you think. You know, I understand what you're trying to do. It's all a mind game and what not."
Her next project is a movie based on a book that Nicolas Sparks-the author of "A Walk to Remember," "The Notebook," and "Nights in Rodanthe"-is writing and adapting for her.
"It's more of an edgy role, which I'm excited to do," said Cyrus.
"It's really important to me that people think of me as a real artist," she added. (ANI)
