For months women have waded in on the Miley Cyrus, sexually exploiting, feminism hoopla. Is Miley a pioneer, are her performances degrading to women, should dancing bears be offended?

Well everyone else can just drop it now as Paloma Faith has rounded the whole thing up nicely.

"I have always dressed up and I enjoy being a woman. I think there's something very female about the way that I dress," she told The Evening Standard.

"It's nothing to do with a 'sex sells' angle of being female, it's about being proud of being feminine. There's a strength in it, so I call it 'power dressing'."

Fresh from her The Voice performance last weekend, the 32-year-old singer continued, "It's not that I'm prudish, but I think it's feminism gone wrong, and I don't ever want to do that.

I think it's a slightly deluded and warped version of feminism because it's being marketed as this new kind of girl power, and it's actually, in my view, a bit degrading. It's completely geared towards the male gaze."

But surely all this nudity is proving women can be just as sexual as men Paloma?

"I don't have a problem with nudity but there's a fine line. I don't want to come across as a non-sexual person because I think that's just as bad...but I don't think that behaviour [referring to Miley] is putting that across."

Paloma for Prime Minister.

Meanwhile over in the scantily clad blue corner, Miley has been talking to Elle magazine and she has a different view.

"I mean, guy rappers grab their crotch all f**king day and have hos around them, but no one talks about it. But if I grab my crotch and I have hot model bitches around me, I'm degrading women? I'm a woman -- I should be able to have girls around me! But I'm part of the evolution of that. I hope," Cyrus explained.

Maybe we're not quite over this just yet then. Back to work people.
