Miley Cyrus has defended her figure after she was accused of being fat.
The former Hannah Montana star was criticised after sporting a new curvier shape but Miley - who is dating The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth - has taken to Twitter to hit back at her detractors.
Posting a picture of an emaciated woman whose ribs were visible, she wrote: "By calling girls like me fat, this is what you're doing to other people.
"I love MYSELF & If you could say the same you wouldn't be sitting on your computer trying to hurt others. (sic)"
Miley then tweeted a picture of curvaceous blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe and wrote that men - including Liam - prefer curvy women.
She said: "Proof that you can be adored by thousands of men even when your thighs touch.
"I don't wanna be shaped like a girl. I LOVE being shaped like a WOMAN & trust me ladies your man won't mind either ;) (sic)"
Miley's close pal 19-year-old Demi Lovato, who was treated for an eating disorder last year, supported her pal on the micro-blogging website.
She tweeted: "god I love you. SO DO YOU!!! And whoever called you that has it coming. ps SO proud of you for posting that! #curvesareBEAUTIFUL. (sic)"
Miley replied: "AMEN. I will destroy any one that calls you the F (fat) word. You have the SEXIIIESTTT curvyyyy body! I LOVE IT! Werk (work) those curves. (sic)"
