Miley Cyrus: It Sucks To Publicly Embarrass Myself (VIDEO)

Miley Cyrus has been dragged through the mud for a handful of lightweight scandals, from pole dancing to Asian mocking to not-really topless photos. Things that are extra regrettable when you are famous for being a Disney starlet!

"My mistakes are kind of a little bit harder because they are in front of millions and millions of people," Miley told Natalie Morales on the Today Show Friday after performing in the rain.

"I get to go through that and I get to learn. It's hard sometimes to smile about it, because half the time, yeah, it does suck to have to go through that. But also it makes you want to try harder the next time when I know that little girls look at me and say I'm their hero."
