The Prayer singer Charlotte Church has shown her support for Disney star Miley Cyrus insisting that the controversial singer is entitled to do "stupid things" as she is young.

The 27-year-old Welsh singer stated that the 20-year-old former Hannah Montana actress is not responsible for her recent VMAs scandal.

Speaking on This Morning, Church said: "In terms of people like Miley Cyrus etc, I think it's really sad that it's only her that's blamed because, if we are talking about that particular Miley Cyrus performance (at the MTV VMAs), we have got to remember that that would have gone through tons of people and advisors and lots of people that she works with. She makes a lot of money for a lot of people, therefore they won't let her make mistakes.

"And she is really young. She is only little and everybody does stupid things when they are younger, and I just think it's really sad how people are sort of really attacking her, because it's the industry, it's the societal problems more than Miley Cyrus' personal issues or whatever."

Church became an international superstar at 13-years-old when her debut album Voice Of An Angel was released.

That album, as well as her 1999 self-titled second album and her 2000 Christmas collection all achieved platinum status in America.
