SYDNEY- Pop diva Miley Cyrus has opened up to Australian television about her life, saying Googling yourself is bad for your brain and Elvis was a "twerker".

Speaking ahead of her Australian tour the former squeaky clean child star of Hannah Montana also spoke about why she has posted images of herself smoking marijuana on social media.

 

"I put pictures of me smoking weed, I'm not going to lie, on my Instagram because I was brought up in the way that we never thought marijuana was bad," she told Channel Seven on Sunday evening.


"I don't promote it in my songs... it's not like I'm sitting around telling a bunch of kids to do a bunch of drugs."

 
Pressed on the topic, the 21-year-old, who has "love your brain", tattooed on her body replied: "You know what hurts your brain? Googling yourself.

 
"You know what hurts your brain? Instagram. You know what hurts your brain? Sitting there reading comments on Facebook.

 
"I have a 14-year-old sister and I go through her comments and people are calling her a slut and that's a 14-year-old. So I think that's hurting your brain," she said. 


Cyrus also commented on her now infamous twerking performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards with Robin Thicke, comparing her suggestive moves to those of Elvis Presley.


"No one talked about him (Thicke) or what he was doing, it was all my fault. It's funny, I just never thought anything about it. Literally, I never thought 'Oh this is like a married dude that I'm dancing with this way'," she said.


"Elvis, he wasn't wearing the outfits I was wearing... I mean no one wants to admit it that Elvis was twerking. He was."
