Miley Cyrus doesn't just embrace her body hair, she even has some fun with it. She once dyed her armpit hair bright pink, and shared it was part of being her authentic self.
"The pink pits are saying, ‘Don’t tell me what to do,’” she said at the time. “It’s back to what I’m preaching in a way, you know, telling these kids. I’m not just saying you be yourself – I’m saying I’m going to be my self, too.”
