Miley Cyrus is keen to "explore sexuality" and "experiment".
The 18-year-old star - who was filmed smoking a legal high through a 'bong' device last year - admitted while she isn't a "crazy lady", she doesn't want to shelter herself from the experiences other girls her age have just because she is in the public eye.
She said: "People have very mixed opinions on me; I'm a great role model, or I'm completely inappropriate for anyone under 13 and I am controversial. I don't know how I became this.
"It's weird. Two complete extremes. I'm not some crazy lady who's gone off the deep end, because I definitely haven't. I just always try to be real. Every 18 year old explores sexuality and experiments and tries things. For me there's no reason to change that. You have to be true to yourself."
Miley - who is dating Australian actor Liam Hemsworth - explained despite her "wild" reputation, she very rarely leaves her home.
She added in an interview with Prestige magazine: "There was this magazine article the other day, showing all the younger celebrities. I was The Girl Next Door or whatever, and I fell under the category of Good Girl Gone Bad. And I was like, 'What the hell, man?'
"I stay in the house pretty much every day. I don't go out. I've had same boyfriend for two years. So I think there are two very different reviews."
