Miley Cyrus claims her Bangerz tour is "educational" and that it will expose children to art that they may not get to see otherwise.
Miley said: "Even though parents probably won't think this, I think my show is educational for kids. They're going to be exposed to art most people don't know about. People are taught to look at things so black and white, especially in small towns. I'm excited to take this tour to places where [art] like this wouldn't be accepted, where kids wouldn't learn about this different kind of art."
