Noah Cyrus, Miley's little sister, has shocked fans with her recent choice of outfit, but the criticism raises some serious questions...
Noah is the lesser-known Cyrus sis.But now, Miley's little sister Noah Cyrus has shocked fans all on her own, by wearing a very revealing outfit on stage. Has she outdone Miley this time?
Noah has previously been outspoken about life growing up with Miley...And as we can imagine, it wasn't smooth sailing.
Noah, who is twenty-years-old, is the youngest daughter of Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus...
Noah is also a singer...
Her latest song "Young & Sad" is all about what it's like growing up with such a huge star in the family.The lyric that fans pointed out compares Miley to, "sunshine, bringing good light wherever she’ll go," while she, "was born to rain clouds, blessed in her shadows."
Noah even took to Instagram Live to discuss the song with her fans...And it was clearly very emotional for the young woman as it didn't take long for her to break down in tears. "I think just the message in the second verse, being born in the family I was in, everyone gave me such a hard time for having a hard time being Miley’s little sister," she said.
Growing up wasn't easy for Noah...
She said she wrote that lyric "because that’s why everybody always says to me, that no matter what, I was going to be in that shadow.""I always believed that and that's so hard for me to overcome, you know, and that was something I heard my whole life, every single day, my whole life," she added. "It was either that or that I wasn’t enough in some way, whether it was the way I look or the way I am. Like I said the other day, sometimes I feel like I don’t even breathe right sometimes."
It is rare for the singer to open up about her personal life..."Basically, that is what the song is about, and I just wanted to open up about that once and for all, because that’s been a big part of my life, and I probably won’t talk about it anymore. I just wanted to put it out," Noah continued.
The conflicts of social media haven't helped Noah at all...
"Everybody always says you’re giving the people power by seeing it, but I can’t control seeing it. You guys are young, you know the internet. It’s been really tough on me, so that song is just pretty tough to get through," she concluded.
It is undeniable how difficult it must be to grow up in the shadow of your famous big sister...
And now Noah has hit headlines again.For quite a different reason...
She wore a rather controversial outfit at the CMTs.

But the criticism she's been facing raises another issue entirely...
The outfit was custom-made for Noah by Saga NYC, a self-described slow fashion brand with a focus on sustainability.
"This piece looks simple far away, but looking at it close up you would realize how many small pieces have been sewn together."
But, despite being a sustainable, praise-worthy garment, the critical response to the garment is similar to what Miley has faced throughout her career.
It was her 2013 MTV Video Music Awards appearance, however, that really raised eyebrows.She famously stuck her tongue out, waved a foam finger, and twerked against Robin Thicke during their performance.
Miley's dances have been considered as cultural appropriation...And the song she performed with Thicke ("Blurred Lines") sparked a huge debate about sexual consent.
But still, people were more obsessed over 2 two-piece latex ensemble.Not only did she receive backlash online in response to the outfit — with people branding her a bad role model — but she was also named as one of the worst-dressed celebrities at the event by some news outlets, as well as being voted the worst-dressed celebrity of the year in a TIME poll.
In March, Miley told Demi Lovato during a livestream that the backlash discouraged her from wearing shorts and bikinis for years after the performance.their Instagram live. "I stopped wearing skirts on stage, all this s--- because after the VMAs, and I had on my cute little nude bodysuit, everyone started comparing me to a turkey and putting a turkey in my outfit."
Nevertheless, it seems Noah stands by her recent outfit choice.
