Miley Cyrus suggests self-googling worse than bong-hitting

'Miley Cyrus says Facebook, Google, Instagram worse than drugs' shocker, right?

Well, not quite:

In an interview with Australian news magazine program Sunday Night ahead of a tour down under, Cyrus was asked whether her use of marijuana has deleterious effects on her health. Her response was to dismiss the notion and instead offer the following pearls of wisdom:

“You know what hurts your brain? Googling yourself. You know what hurts your brain? Instagram. You know what hurts your brain? Reading comments on Facebook. You know what hurts your brain? Reading US Weekly."
To be fair, since 1994 US Weekly has carried a surgeon general's health warning on the front page.

But if Cyrus really believes that Instagram is bad for you, should she really have an account with seven million followers? Isn't she effectively destroying brains by the dozen?

NB: This question is rhetorical.

UPDATE: Jesus, I can't tell the difference between Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry any more, even when it's just their name written down. Thanks, Frank.
