Miley featured in Courier Mail: ‘Heart Shaped Box is my favourite Nirvana song. It is. I sing it all the time in our garage. Mom has turned the garage into such a cool place. I want to be a photographer, so we put in lights for me to do my..
..photography. And my brother plays guitar there. It’s fun. I love Stevie (Nicks). & Joan Jett. I’m doing covers of them. There’s songs people won’t expect. I have a bunch of Nirvana songs I can do, My band is freaking out. They have to learn every song by every artist I like because they never know what song I’ll throw at them. This tour might be a mess but it’ll be fun. She will play See You Again,
7 Things, The Climb and Party in the USA: ‘I can play anything off any of my solo records. And here might be kids who don’t know Nirvana. I hope they do. There could be complete silence after I play Teen Spirit and I’ll just hear people..
.saying, ‘We want to hear Party in the USA!” On Hannah Montana: ‘It’s five years since I auditioned, it feels like a lifetime ago. I’ve changed a lot. I’ve gone from being a student and cheerleader in a normal school in Nashville to what I do now in just a few years.. I’ve done OK. I’m still alive. It’s all good. I’m not in jail.
Everyone freaks out, ‘Oh God, she’s an adult now’, but I’ve been working like an adult my whole life. People just look at the bad. They don’t look at the time and effort I’ve put into my job and how much I’ve gotten done. They look at it as a bad thing I’m an adult, which is silly.’
Are people waiting for you to fail? ‘People love it because it sells something, a magazine or a TV show. I mess up. There you go. There’s your headline. You’ll sell your paper. But if you live your life trying to be perfect you don’t really live your life because you don’t really make any mistakes and at the end of your life you won’t be very smart or wise.’
Her opening monologue, I’m Not Perfect: ‘There’s a photo of me being kissed by a dude, Annie Liebowitz tried to get me nude..‘ She also talked about her pole dancing & when noting she’s never had a porn tape added, ‘don’t these things seem worse than a bong?’ ‘If the whole world is going to stress about what I’ve done then I’ll laugh at it. That lets everyone know it’s OK. It’s not a secret.
It’s like the elephant in the room. It’s not like people don’t know what’s going on in my life. It’s OK to talk about it, I’m not losing any sleep at night and neither should anyone else. You learn from your mistakes and then you move on from them and you’re a better person.‘ On The Last Song failing with critics:
‘It bothers me when someone doesn’t like what I do. But my true fans are down with it. I’m an artist, not a puppet. You can’t tell me what to write because you can’t tell me what to feel. I’m an actress when I want but I wouldn’t be a musician if I wanted to act all the time. I want to be able to do both.
Acting is when I get to be someone I’m not, but when it comes to my music I can’t do that, I have to say what’s on my mind. You hope people like it, but if not, it’s your record, it’s your name on it, you have to be proud of it, not anyone else.’
