For about six minutes last night, Miley Cyrus talked to Jimmy Kimmel about tits—having them, covering them, aging with them. It was a really good interview.

Some choice quotes:

  • “My dad’s cool, because I’m sure he’d maybe rather me not have my tits out all the time, but he’d rather me have my tits out and be a good person than have a shirt on and be a bitch.”
  • “When you’ve got your tits out, you can’t really be an asshole.”
  • “Sometimes it’s like a nice convo icebreaker: You can be like, ‘Stop staring at my tits!’ and then, like, the convo just keeps going.”
  • “You know what I’ve learned? It’s not the tit—are you allowed to say ‘tit’ on your show?”
  • “Humans aren’t afraid of the human breast. It’s the nipple that’s the issue...Like, I’m showing my boobs and no one has a problem, but the nipples are covered, so somehow that’s OK. So America’s actually fine with tits. It’s nipples they don’t like.”
  • “Hollywood Boulevard is pretty much my entire closet. It’s interesting when I go on Instagram, you know, and girls are like, ‘hashtag-Givenchy.’...I’m like, ‘Hashtag-tit pasty’ that was like, a dollar for a pack of four.”
  • “I’m very eco friendly. I’m a vegan nudist.”

After a story about the “insane” choices she observed at a nude beach and gravity’s unforgiving nature, Cyrus assured Kimmel that she would be naked for life because “those old people did it to me.” That’s our girl.
