10 Women That Should Mentor Miley Cyrus

Miley fans might disagree, but Miley isn’t do so well these days. Though she is getting a lot f media attention, its not really the most positive. Some of the choices she has made have been looked down up, but she can still be herself without trying too hard. So here are 10 successful women that went through similar paths as Miley but came out strong after. Miley Cyrus, meet your mentors.

1. Drew Barrymore

It is a tragedy that Miley Cyrus isn’t doing so well at overcoming the temptations of nudity, drugs and tongue wagging like our precious Barrymore did years ago. Maybe Barrymore can give Miley the reality check she needs.

2. Hilary Duff

Hilary started out at Disney and continued making great films that still embraced those Disney themes until she had her fairy tale ending. Instead of running from her Disney past like Miley, she embraced it.

3. Lily Collins

Collins has a famous dad just like Miley, which can be tricky when you want to break through as a serious artist. Instead of fearing that she would be looked as a daddy’s girl she went on being herself in a classy but mature manner. Take notes Miley.


Raven Symone recently came out, and though her sexual preferences differ from Cyrus, she talked about her sexuality in a way that didn’t insult or upset others. Talking about sex in that manner means you don’t care what others think, but you’re also not obnoxious about it either.

5. Jennifer Lawrence

Lawrence can be weird sometimes, but she’s doing it not to purposely get attention (at least we don’t think so), but because she means it. Lets not say crazy things just to be an attention-whore Miley.

6. Emma Stone

Emma Stone is awesome, she is funny and beautiful and she is dating the great Andrew Garfield. But we don’t know much about their relationship, now do we? Privacy is kind of awesome Miley.

7. Emma Watson

Emma Watson grew up to be a very attractive woman, which is great, especially because she doesn’t flaunt her looks by grinding on older men. Though you grew up to have a hot bod Miley, its ok to still dress modest but still taking raunchy, yet smart, roles.

8. Chloe Sevigny

She made very hard decisions in her acting career, including giving oral for a film. But though she was the talk of some very nasty conversations, Chloe moved on with her head held high. Maybe Miley should do just that and stop bragging.

9. Lily Allen

Miley can continue making music about dangerous subjects, thats cool with us, but she should look up to Lily Allen. Allen successfully makes hits about sex that are relatable but still her.

10. Demi Lovato

Lovato went through a lot of serious stuff that could’ve driven anyone crazy but she conquered. So, come on Miley! We’re rooting for you!
