Miley Cyrus has said that proponents of Indiana’s Religious Freedom law are not choosing to live life the way youths are choosing to live theirs: constantly learning and evolving. Cyrus said the youths among her generation are moving forward to see change, and that if people wouldn’t listen to Apple CEO Tim Cook, they would “maybe” listen to her.
“They Are Dinosaurs”
Advocates of the controversial Religious Freedom law do not know how to constantly learn and evolve, Cyrus said. Supporters of the Indiana law are “dinosaurs and dying off,” she said.
“I lived a life where I had to be something every day and had to be a character, and it wasn’t necessarily who I wanted to be. And now I’ve dedicated my life to being whoever it is that I want to be, and also constantly learning and evolving. That’s what’s wrong with [supporters of the Indiana law]—they’re not choosing to live that way. And if you don’t choose to live that way, you’re not going to last in this generation because we are overtaking you. They are dinosaurs, and they are dying off. We are the new generation, and with that will come so much,” Cyrus told TIME in an exclusive interview.
Cyrus said her generation is moving forward, and they will not be distracted by laws like Indiana’s Religious Freedom bill.
“We are moving forward. As much as we get distracted by stupid laws that make us feel like we’re regressing, we’re not. We are moving forward because it’s our turn as young people. It’s a new rights movement,” Cyrus went on.
She said advocates of the law are trying very hard to make it appear like it is not discriminatory.
“It’s confusing for my fans, so I’m happy to [speak up about it]. They won’t listen to Tim Cook, maybe. But they’ll listen to me, you know? And people are starting to listen, I think,” Cyrus said.
Cyrus has posted more scathing opinions on her Instagram account.
