Miley Cyrus finally addresses the video of her taking a hit from a salvia bong that was leaked to TMZ last year in the March issue of Marie Claire.

Despite some hallucinogenic qualities, salvia is a natural herb, sold at health food stores and is legal in California. But when you are Disney superstar and role model -- you're going to be criticized. The starlet understands why it was a big deal; she is wholly apologetic and remorseful for her actions in the article, even though teens will be teens.

"For me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for," Cyrus says in the issue, which stands February 15th. "What I never wanted was for my fans to ever feel like I betrayed them ... To feel like I said I was something, then turned around and was something that I'm not."

"But I've never, ever claimed to be perfect," she adds. "I mean, since I've started the show, I've always said, 'I'm gonna make mistakes.' I know this. And I think that that is one of the reasons why people related to me. Why kids related to me."

We forgive you Miley.
