Miley Cyrus new Associated Press interview! ‘On my Twitter, (I get) so many replies like ‘This song inspires me’ and ‘This inspires me.’ ..One of the reasons why I love that site is being able to see what people are saying about the record.’
On whether some songs are ‘too personal’ to write: Yes, sometimes I write songs just to write them. I have written thousands of songs that are just for me. I will even play them for my friends, and they will say, ‘Will that be on your next record?’ and I’ll say, ‘No, that was just for me. That was just for my peace of mind.’
And I think that is important to do that. Not always writing a song and be like, ‘Oh, that is going to be on a record.’ If it sounds great and it is something that you think goes along with the album that you are putting together, that is awesome. If not then it’s cool. It doesn’t matter.’
What is the most diva like thing about you? This tour is the most diva thing. Because when I got here, it was like, ‘OK, we are not messing around, this thing is going to be like full out. We are going to get everything, it’s going to continue to blow peoples minds.’ And everyone was like, ‘Alright Miley is stepping it up.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, it is my tour.’ The first time I was actually going out, no Hannah Montana, none of that. Just my own style.
Will you retire the ‘Hannah Montana’ character. I thought about retiring when I was like 15. Just kidding. I would have retired like twelve years ago. I want to continue to do everything I can. My dad always says, ‘If you ain’t having fun, it ain’t working.’ And so when I stop having fun, I’ll just quit everything altogether. But, I’m having fun.. I think I will forever do that, if I have the people that I’m around still around me. They make me happy, and the people that I work with I really love. ..I will be able to tour the rest of my life if I am having fun.
What is your biggest mistake? I think everything I do is exaggerated a lot. I think that no matter what, I think it is all about respect. People forget that when you are in the public eye, people forget you still have to respect people and you still have to (respect) their privacy. And also respect my family and trust the fact that my parents are raising me just like everyone else is raising their kids. They are doing it the way they want to. It is not for the media or for any one else to judge how they should or should not raise me.
