It hasn’t gone unnoticed that flippant use of the phrase “that’s so gay” runs rampant with American teenagers, even prompting celebrity-sponsored PSAs on the issue. Maybe the fact of the matter is that Miley is, at 16, just acting her age.

What do you think? Does this seem like the kind of thing a pop star with a large gay following — who allegedly supports gay marriage — would do? Is this just another flub being taken out of context and being blown out of proportion? Or is the internet — or maybe the Gay Mafia and Hilary Duff? — conspiring against her?
