Miley Cyrus interview excerpts from Star Telegram: Onm musical influences:
I love Coldplay and the Killers and John Lennon, all dudes, because I have a low voice. I do, I like that sound because it is a little more edgy.
I love playing the drums. I am learning the piano, I am learning the bass & I
play the guitar. So I will continue to do more instruments.
Which is harder a TV show or a tour?
TV show is a little harder because you are at the same place every day. It is a little more boring. With the touring you get to be somewhere new every day. You never get bored. Physically a tour is hard;
You have to run around, you are tired. Today I only got two hours’ sleep so I am a little tired. You can’t do that on tour, otherwise you will just crash during the show.
On her first job in show business:
My first job was actually a beans commercial. My aunt took me to the audition because my little friend was auditioning and she was taking her. She said ‘You should go, it might be fun.’ I ended up getting it, and my friend didn’t.
Favorite city to perform in:
Surprisingly, it is usually the smaller towns that are actually like the craziest because they are not used to having all different kinds of people traveling there. I like smaller towns because the people get like crazy.
If you weren’t in show business what would you do?
I would like to be a photographer. And, honestly, I am the worst
painter, but if I could be anything I would want to be a painter, but I
can’t paint so that X’s that out. I wish I could draw well
because I just think it is the coolest. My brother’s roommate is a
painter, so that is what I would like to do.
Fave actors growing up:I used to love all the Mary-Kate and
Ashley Olsen movies. They were my favorite. And now I love Jennifer
Aniston because she can do kids movies and she does a lot of fun
movies, but then she also can do ones that are for an older audience,
too. And that is what I would like to do, stay in touch with the kids
and then be able to do more mature movies, too.
