Miley Cyrus chatted with Pasadena Star about finally getting her new album done so that she can move onto more important things: ‘I’ve gone these last five years with everyone telling me what to do. Now it’s up to me and what I think is right in my career; so I’m just going in my own direction.. I kind of don’t want to do music right now. [The record is more pop and definitely edgier] kind of like The Killers. That’s my favorite band.’
I remember when I lived in Nashville before all of this. I would call my radio station and say, `Can I hear Justin Timberlake’ and fans could call in. It was all about the fans. Now it’s all about what commercials can we play. What gossip can we hear about. Who do we owe so we can play their music. It’s not like it’s based on the fans anymore. And that’s the kind of industry I want to be in,
One based on the fans and doing things for the people that support you.”yrus admits she has to be careful about what roles she chooses next. I still want (my fans) to know who I am, but I want to extend my audience. I want to continue to do what I love, but not just be the same person, over and over.’
On life: ‘I feel being compared to a normal 17-year old is a little bit hard to do. I don’t feel like that’s who I am necessarily. I think the media likes to use that to their advantage sometimes. `She’s only 17, why is she doing this?’ And then they like to act like I’m older sometimes ..(and) when it works to their advantage, they want me to be younger.
It’s interesting never getting off this ride. This go, go, go, go, go all the time and never stopping. But I think this is a good point. Once the movie comes out and the record comes out and when I go into my next film, I’ll be able to have a little bit more time to look back on things and slow down just a little bit.’
On her new film ‘LOL (Laughing Out Loud)’ an American remake of a 2008 French teen comedy about a mother and daughter with relationship problems. Miley likes the idea of finnding projects like ‘LOL’ that ‘people don’t necessarily know here that are really edgy and cool and need to be brought into the States.’
