Miley Cyrus Doesn't Like the Title of the CW's 'Supergirl'
Miley Cyrus is speaking out against the CW’s show Supergirl, saying she believes the program’s title isn’t accurate and may make people uncomfortable.
The 24-year-old singer and actress explained to Variety that she thinks the title is also weird for having a gender attached.
“There’s a show called Supergirl. I think having a show with a gender attached to it is weird. One, it’s a woman on that f**king billboard — it’s not a little girl,” she said.
Miley continued, “Two, what if you’re a little boy who wants to be a girl so bad that this makes you feel bad? I think having a title like Supergirl doesn’t give the power that people think it does.”
In the past, Supergirl‘s creative team has explained that the name stems from the character of Supergirl, who is Superman’s younger cousin and separate from Superwoman.
“We knew going in that Supergirl might imply a younger audience, but we felt we could take a powerful word back and participate in introducing that to a new generation and say that doesn’t just mean young or inconsequential. It should be strong and bold. That was our goal,” producer Greg Berlanti previously explained.
