Melora Hardin says it's normal for girls at Miley Cyrus' age to cause some controversies as long as they avoid doing something that is "too naughty."

Miley Cyrus gets support from fellow "Hannah Montana: The Movie" star Melora Hardin over her much-talked picture that shows her and friends making "goofy faces", because of which she has been accused to have mocked Asians. "When you're 15 and you're in the spotlight, who wouldn't court some controversy? I would have if I had been in the spotlight at 15," Hardin told MTV News at the screening of movie "He's Just Not That Into You."

"Weren't we all doing naughty things? I hope we were ... at least somewhat naughty, not too naughty," she continued. "A little naughty is good!"

Notwithstanding all the controversies surrounding Cyrus' career and personal life, Hardin praised the Disney young actress-singer as "a hard worker." Hardin said, "She works hard, and she's a professional. She comes to work on time. She knows her lines. She's in the recording booth when she's not on set. She's on tour when she's not doing that."

Miley Cyrus herself took to her blog on MileyWorld recently to address her controversial picture, writing, "There are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces! Well, Im sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!"

This new PC world that we are in now is bloody ridculous. Everything seems to offend someone. Next week we will see someone giving a thumbs up to a camera and one person will say "oh no, this offends the people of .... because it is an insult to our religion" and the whole world will go "ooooh how horrible"

Just because she's a hard-worker doesn't mean she's any less ignorant. Sure when you're young you succumb to "naughty" things, but when does naughty equate with racism?? A little naughty is good? Get with the program lady! Its like you're saying a little racist is good?? I'd like to add that when I was her age, I was well educated enough to know better.
