Miley Cyrus has something to say about Bong-Gate.

“For me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for,” Miley told the March issue of Marie Claire magazine regarding the video that surfaced online last year, showing the teen smoking the legal herb salvia.

The teen sensation, who recently wrapped up her Disney Channel series “Hannah Montana,” admitted the move wasn’t a good one.

“I’m not perfect … I made a mistake,” she told the mag in excerpts of the new article, which were published on the mag’s website. “I’m disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans.”

When the magazine suggested plenty of 18 year olds in college are doing the same thing — smoking salvia, Cyrus said, “But they’re not Miley Cyrus. They’re not role models.”

The singer said she also has a new role model of her own — Demi Moore.

The two recently filmed “LOL,” a remake of a French film which follows the story of a teen girl who ends up pursuing her boyfriend’s best friend after the promiscuous beau dumps her. The mother’s role is one equally unlucky in love — she’s working on trying to move on following a divorce.

“It really felt like Demi was my mom a little bit because we had such great conversations, and I feel like it shows on-screen,” Cyrus said of the project, which opens April 22. “I can’t wait for ‘LOL’ to come out. It’s what I’m most proud of.”
