(Newser) – Miley Cyrus “can’t be the 12-year-old who just moved to LA forever,” the starlet tells the Daily Mail with regard to her rapidly deteriorating innocence—but “I want to keep my virginity until I marry. I was brought up in a Christian family.” The 16-year-old may “stumble and fall” at times, she admits, but she has no intention of taking the same path as some of her fellow teen idols.

“'People mention child performers who have gone off the rails, but there are also stable people like Jodie Foster,” Miley says. “She was a child star and look where she is now. She called to give me advice, which was great.”
