Miley Cyrus is trying to change the way "people view sexuality".
The controversial pop star was widely criticised earlier in her career for her raunchy music videos and outspoken comments, but Miley believes the public should focus less on her antics and instead concern themselves with the more serious problems in the world.
Miley said: "I'm doing what I need to do. I'm working in my community. I'm changing the way people view sexuality. I'm working with suicide prevention programmes.
"I'm feeding people that don't have food to eat. I'm doing my part as a human. You better go do your part if you're gonna even have one little opinion about what I do. You better be doing some great things for your community."
Miley, 24, concedes that her attitude makes some people uncomfortable.
But the chart-topping singer has no regrets about her past behaviour, saying it's her intention to be a "punk".
Speaking to NPR, Miley explained: "If you don't p**s somebody off, then that's not punk rock, I guess. But I wish people wouldn't be p***ed off.
"There are so many real, true, problems in the world. If people would take their angst and their opinions and actually do something besides worry about what I'm doing. I'm a pop star. I'm good: I have a house, I have a roof over my head, I have food to eat. There are people without those things."
Miley urged her critics to use their time more constructively by campaigning for social change through political avenues.
The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker - who has been a vocal supporter of the LGBT community around the world - said: "Go and use your time and your opinion wisely, and get mad and call your senators about the things that matter."

IT’S A BOY: Hong Kong actress Myolie Wu surprised many by announcing her unborn child’s gender in a live broadcast during her baby shower on Saturday (Sep 23), ahead of her delivery in November.
Even before the announcement, party decorations hinted that the mother-to-be was expecting a boy as blue was the main colour theme, with many blue balloons and decorations, and even Myolie herself was dressed in navy.
Towards the end of the live broadcast video, Myolie took viewers by surprise when she confirmed speculations that she was expecting a baby boy after receiving many good wishes from fans.
Myolie’s husband, businessman Philip Lee also confirmed her statement by posting pictures from the baby shower on Instagram with the caption: “Yes, it’s a boy! Thank you for your love and well wishes. Baby Lee is so blessed before he is even born.”
Likewise, the 37-year-old actress also took to Instagram to share a picture from the party which was attended by her close friends Elaine Yiu, Mandy Wong and Sharon Chan from showbiz.
Pointing out that her “nose really got big” because of pregnancy hormones, she wrote, “Thank you to all our family and friends for coming to celebrate with us and giving all the lovely gifts to baby Lee, yes it’s a boy.”
The actress first broke the news that she was four-months pregnant on Weibo and Instagram this May.
Myolie tied the knot with Philip in December 2015 after dating for a year.
Karrueche Tran "fell in love" with Chris Brown.
The 29-year-old model and actress never could have predicted that she'd get in a relationship with the 'Loyal' hitmaker - who was handed a permanent restraining order to not contact her back in June - but insists things just happened organically.
She said: "I met Chris, actually, on a styling job. I was a personal assistant to a stylist. That was the direction I was going in my career. I was on this job. We met. You know, he did his whole charming thing. The base of our relationship started as us just being friends. It was work related. I didn't have sex with him, anything like that. Then, you know, I got into my emotions and I fell in love with him."
Karrueche remained fairly tight-lipped about the restraining order she had made against him but did say she decided to go down that route so she could "protect her safety".
Speaking about the restraining order, she said simply: "It came to a point where I felt like I needed to protect my safety."
The pair haven't spoken or crossed paths in the last few months.
She added: "It's so interesting. We have not recently in the past few months or whatever, we haven't cross paths."
Now single, Karrueche is trying to "self-invest" rather than rush into another relationship.
Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show, she said: "I'm so into myself right now. I'm trying to self-invest with, you know, Claws and everything, I just want to keep that momentum going and just protect me and make sure I am on the right path."

Myolie was already seven months pregnant. She said her condition is good, and she only feels a little uncomfortable when she sleeps. When asked about the popular TV series Nothing Gold Can Stay that Myolie was part of, she said the production team was perfect, so surely the audience rating would be perfect.
Julian had kept a beard for a while. After he finishes the shooting of L Storm at the end of September, he will shave it off. The funny thing is, his wife Anita Yuen was already used to his rougher face, and even advised him do not to shave it off.
Talking about his son Morton, Julian said, “He knew that Anita and I are actors when he went to school. I did not explain my work to him because he was too young at that time. Now that he has grown up, I've taken him to film sets several times, but he doesn't seem too interested in them."

Taiwanese-American singer Wang Leehom held a press conference in Beijing on Tuesday (Sept 19) following the release of two new songs, ‘A.I. Love’ and ‘World Without Tears’, both from his upcoming album A.I Love.
The singer kept up with the latest trend of technology and placed a machine at the entrance of the press conference venue that allowed the detection of facial features. One could only enter upon passing the facial recognition test after which, they were directed to their assigned positions.
This adoption of the latest technological trends was also evident in the music video of his title track, ‘A.I. Love’, which was produced by his wife Lee Jinglei. The video features the famous Hanson Robotics robot Sophia – who, as the company’s latest and most advanced robot, was very expensive – as the female lead. Leehom even had to film intimate scenes with her but said that she had facial expressions and was very smart, knowing when and when not to blink during the filming.
Being actively involved with technology, the singer also has a robot helper in both his house and company to help look after his children and assist during meetings respectively. He expressed that sometimes at the studio, he would use his phone to control them. He also added that their faces were like video screens and they were able to interact with his children.
Although technology has greatly improved human lives, Leehom still has some reservations and believes that they could not replace humans or their emotions entirely. This is the main theme in his song as well, where his chorus questions the ethics regarding the line drawn between humans and machines.
“Only a human being is capable of love and that is difficult to replicate. You can cheat a person of their money or time but it is unforgivable to play with their emotions,” said the singer.
He also revealed that one of the tracks on the album was written specially for his children with his eldest daughter, 3-year-old Jiali, harmonising in an upcoming song. The proud father praised her for having a nice voice and being very talented. He further revealed that she is currently learning how to play the piano.
His latest album A.I. Love is split into four mini albums. A.I. Love Episode 1 features the two recently released songs and it is believed that each mini album will have at least two brand new songs. The full-length album of A.I. Love will only be available for sale after the four mini albums are released.
Leehom’s next tour will commence in March 2018.
Zayn Malik feels people have a new found "respect" for him after he opened up about his anxiety struggles.
The 'Pillowtalk' hitmaker has publicly battled with anxiety over the recent months and he believes talking about the issue has helped others grow a mutual respect for him and his feelings.
He said: "My fans are always supportive of anything I did. They're amazing people and they're always behind me. But the crazy thing for me was, the thing people that I didn't expect to speak to me about that spoke to me about it, random people, like older people that had read the book, and they were like 'I really respect you speaking about that, it takes a lot of strength and a lot of confidence in yourself to be able to just be like 'this is what it is, this is how it was, this is how I'm feeling,' and that was really cool to get that reaction because I didn't necessarily do it for that reason. I just did it because I felt like I needed to do it. So when you get a nice reaction in return it's like a bonus, it's a cool feeling."
And the 24-year-old singer is glad his admission has had a "positive impact" and allowed others to see where his feelings came from.
He added : "I feel like it was only a positive impact on everything that happened after it and people now have a better perspective on where I was coming from at the time and just an understanding that it wasn't coming from necessarily being ungrateful, shall we say, or not aware of the opportunities that were in front of me, it was just me struggling with being able to actually be there.
"I'm definitely glad I got that off my chest, as anybody is when you feel like you're keeping something from someone you have to speak about it and clear up the air."
