Miley Cyrus, really a Tennessee native, says she 'grew up' in Detroit. HUH?

We all know Miley for 3 things. Her tongue, her twerk....and her SOUTHERN accent. So, why would the 20 year old pop star claim that she grew up in Detroit.

Well, she's not really claiming she was raised or lived there. However, she said that she felt she entered adulthood there.

A few years back she was in town to shoot a movie called "LOL" and while in town decided she was going to get a tattoo on Detroit's famous 8 Mile.

She got the tattoo and instantly felt like she was an adult.

That doesn't explain why she wore a band-aid over it for a few weeks to hide it from mom, though.
