Kelly Osbourne has spoken out to defend her close pal Miley Cyrus over her sexy new image, telling critics: "If you've got it, flaunt it."

Former Hannah Montana star Cyrus has frequently hit headlines for her racy onstage antics after shocking the showbiz world with her raunchy routine with Robin Thicke at the MTv Video Music Awards (Vmas) last August (13).

Even Osbourne felt her friend was going too far and urged the former child star to "put your tongue in your mouth" and tone down her image, but now the singer-turned-Tv presenter is back in Cyrus' corner, insisting she is a normal, stay-at-home girl at heart.

Osbourne tells British magazine You, "What you see is what you get with Miley Cyrus and that's what I love about her. She is who she is without any apology. Twerking is her thing: I don't judge - if you've got it, flaunt it. I don't do it. I am not that kind of girl. We hang out at each other's houses, eat dinner, talk, put on music and make up stupid dance routines."
