It looks like there is a new Miley Cyrus on the loose -- one who uses her star power wisely to defend the innocent and make public outcries for justice. On Jan. 2, 2013, the teen scene celebrity took to Twitter to defend pop music singer Justin Bieber and attack the morals of overly enthusiastic paparazzi photographers like those who played a role in the death of royal family member Princess Di.
After one of them was killed chasing the Bieb's exotic car while he was driving the Ferrari down the highway in Los Angeles on New Year's Day, she took to Twitter to share her thoughts about the tragic incident. Could the Disney princess finally be growing up and becoming a better role model to other celebrities, twenty-somethings, and teens?
If one reads some of her latest tweets they might think yes. In them, Cyrus appears to be a new woman of sorts.
Normally, the only celeb gossip stories written about her are ones where she gets herself involved with celebrity scandals. But lately, she's also been using the social media website to talk about trending topics in social issues.
In 2012, the Disney princess started to speak out for animal rights. Adopting pets became her pet project and she started to speak out for more important reasons than to advance her own fame through notoriety.
Starting the 2013 year right, she tweeted, "Hope this paparazzi/[Justin Bieber] accident brings on some changes in '13 Paparazzi are dangerous! Wasn't Princess Di enough of a wake up call?!"
Princess Diana, a world-famous humanitarian, had been killed in a car accident back in 1997 when her sons Prince William and Prince Harry were both very young. 20-year-old Cyrus, being from a famous family, was moved by the incident. As the daughter of country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus, she apparently has some level of emotional recall about the tragic incident that happened long before her birth.
A freelance paparazzi agent chasing Justin Bieber's Ferrari down the road died in a fatal car crash on Jan. 1. The paparazzo's accident is now causing star celebs to rally and make a public outcry that legislative acts be put into place related to photo journalists who pursue celebrities.
"The chaos that comes with the paparazzi acting like fools makes it impossible for anyone to make safe choices," Cyrus wrote about the death on Twitter. Regarding the incident, Huffington Post further confirmed, "CNN reports that after learning the news of the death of the photographer, Bieber offered his prayers for the man, but also called for change in the way the paps conduct themselves."
Justin Bieber himself added, "Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves." Bieber, like Cyrus, is also a pet friendly celebrity.
