"I'm not perfect," Cyrus recently told Marie Claire regarding her use of salvia, which is a legal drug in most states including California, where she reportedly smoked it. "I made a mistake ... I'm disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans."

But Cyrus revealed a different reaction, after her interviewer pushed back with empathy, asking, "But do you really think it was a mistake? Obviously college kids your age all over America are smoking bongs with a lot more than salvia in them."

The Disney star's response: "But they're not Miley Cyrus. They're not role models. So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for."
