It’s not degrading, it’s cute and sexy! In a new interview with MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow, Miley Cyrus defended her use of little people and black backup dancers on her Bangerz tour. The 21-year-old “We Can’t Stop” singer denied recent criticism that her show is racist and exploitative.

“It’s really funny how serious people take it. And they’re like, you’re racist. And I’m like, ‘Really?'” she told Farrow. “We’re like a bunch of kids dancing around in, like, bears, but we don’t do choreography,” she says of performing with her backup dancer. “They’re just like dancing, doing these cute moves and they’re awesome dancers like just on their own. It’s not me telling them how to be.”

As for the claims that she’s exploiting little people? Cyrus said she doesn’t worry about that. “No, because we’re making them feel sexual and beautiful,” she explained. Citing one of her female little person dancers, the “Wrecking Ball singer explained: “We’re all about lifting her up and making her feel so sexy all the time, and having her dance — she’s actually an awesome dancer.”
