-- Miley Cyrus is fresh off her worldwide “Bangerz” tour but she’s not slowing down.
Cyrus wants to empower those affected by the disease as well as inspire hope for a cure and an end to stereotypes about people with HIV and AIDS.
“It's fun for young people to get to buy a lipstick and know that it's going to actually go to changing the way that their future is going to be,” she said.
Asked whether she considered herself a role model for the youth at the center, she replied: “I can actually say I am 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.”
It’s important to Cyrus to use her celebrity to help others.
“I realized that if there's going to be all this attention on me all the time, no matter what I say, no matter what I do, I should be saying something and speaking on behalf of those that kind of feel like they have no voice,” she said.
Mathison also asked her what a stranger would be surprised to learn about her.
She replied: “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'll probably never get it, but I'm stoked about the nomination,” she said.
