Miley Cyrus on singing about sex, drugs and rock’n’roll: ‘I knew that would happen. There are some lines in there hinting at what people think it’s hinting at. (But) it’s just about whatever you are going through.
..I know everyone is going to talk, there’s no such thing as bad publicity. People are going to talk no matter what. I could wear a sack and people would talk. Being a musician nowadays, you have to make your look count and I have been consistent with that.
People look at me and want to dress like me. That’s a cooler feeling than people who talk at me could know. I love fashion so much that it means a lot to me that girls look at me and what I like to wear and want to imitate that. Everyone wanted me to put out a ballad like The Climb, and I’m a bit of a ballad whore, but that’s not where I’m at or where I feel the world is at.’
Britney Spears tweeted about We Can’t Stop! Britney’s was the first record I ever bought!’ On her music video: ‘I promise you no teddy bears were harmed in the making of the video. The video is like (film) Project X meets a Nylon high fashion shoot. It’s about having fun and it’s grungy in a different way because of the song’s urban vibe.
Everyone is going to wish they were at this party, people are going to trip when they see this. We are at the point where people need to hear a song like this, a song like Party In The USA. It unites people, I want people to feel strong again.
Pharrell was the first person I went to – he’s like my big brother. I get to work with the people I love being around because I live in the studio, I am always running into them at the studio. I am lucky to have a creative family who only want the best for me and we have a bond no one could understand. Being able to write with these people who are like my brothers gives me a reason to live.’
Will Miley head back to Australia to launch her album later this year? My team and I are trying to work it out because I need to come down to see family and friends anyway. It’s a bit of a trek so I want to do as much as I can and make my time work.’
