“Unapologetic Nipple Liberation: How Miley Cyrus Championed Body Positivity in the 2010s”

Miley Cyrus is famously supportive of the “free the nipple” movement that gained popularity in the early 2010s. However, she often faces challenges with Instagram’s no-nudity policy. Despite this, she frequently chooses to wear braless outfits in line with her beliefs. According to Miley, it’s not the breasts themselves that cause controversy – it’s the exposure of nipples. In fact, during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2015, she explained that covering her nipples somehow makes displaying her breasts more acceptable to some people.

Miley has made it clear that she believes America’s attitude towards nipples is ridiculous. While there may be no issue with showing off one’s breasts, she questions the logic behind prohibiting the exposure of nipples. After all, everyone has nipples, regardless of their breast size. Miley’s campaign to “free the nipple” started when she transitioned from her teenage Disney persona to a more mature musician. She boldly made changes such as cutting her hair short, ending her engagement with Liam Hemsworth, and expressing her sexuality without fear.

In her “Wrecking Ball” music video, the artist went all in, wearing nothing but black combat boots. She continued this daring trend at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, where she performed a duet with Robin Thicke wearing only a nude latex bra and underwear. This signaled the end of her previous image as Hannah Montana and completely shattered the mold. Surprising details were revealed during her appearance on Kimmel in 2015, including the fact that her father would rather she show off her breasts and be a good person than cover up and be unpleasant. This statement caught both the host and audience off guard.

Miley Cyrus didn’t settle for just baring her chest; she also asserted that individuals who choose not to display their bodies are frequently ill-natured. She believes that when you’re embracing your sexuality, it’s difficult to be unkind. Despite receiving criticism, Miley has continued to wear daring outfits sans bra and has managed to pull them off with ease.
