Miley Cyrus LOVE magazine excerpts: ‘I don’t feel like I ever want people to feel like I know more than them, but I always tell people this isn’t a pageant. Let me look like me and let’s not make it who can outdo the other with the dress, the hair, the make-up or whatever. It’s so ridiculous how funny award shows have become.
I’d rather care about looking cute in real life than looking good on the carpet. And in real life? That’s who you are. Who really wants to go home and take their hair out? Take their eyelashes off? Take their boobs off? Take their pretty dress off and you’re lame and you’re boring. You know?’ On her competitors:
‘I never say anything bad about anyone. I won’t do it. You know, I think my whole thing, and what I’ve encouraged, is just ‘I’m being myself’. I don’t think I’m anything. I just know it’s such bullshit and that’s why I don’t think about it, because I feel like I’m actually doing something. I’m speaking to my young generation. Don’t give a fuck. Be you, to the fullest.
What’s so crazy to me, and this is nuts, is that sexuality is still so offensive. Kids need to know about sexuality. And irls need to be comfortable in that. You know, people laugh and think it’s funny that I said I’m a big feminist, but what about me isn’t? I tell girls, be who you are. Do whatever the f*ck you want.
I think it’s just because there’s no one else doing it, so I’m the only one to go hard on. I’m also doing it in this less glamorous version of what people think sexy should be. I’ll be in a thong, but it’s not going to be the Victoria’s Secret thong with my hair down to here and a face full of make-up on. It feels more; even going back to punk again, there’s something sexy about that.’
Previous quotes when she was promoting Hannah Montana have been reprised to damn her: ‘People will always be like, ‘At one point you had a ring that said you weren’t going to have sex until you got married.’ That was like a fad.’ She grew out of it. ‘So many kids I’m sure hear their parents be like ‘Miley’s this’ or ‘Miley’s that’.
But then they see me. And I think kids are the biggest bullshit detectors, because they know I’m not doing that to try and sell them my fucking CD; that’s not really what I fucking care about. I’m not going to sit here and tell you what I’ve done or how many albums I’ve sold or whatever. I don’t even fucking know. I know it sells a shit-ton, but I don’t know because I don’t care about numbers.’
On Sky Ferreira joining tour: ‘It’s fucking sick. There’s something about her wearing Saint Laurent with her mismatched socks that is so a fit for me. I think that most girls.. OK, always be afraid of girls that say they don’t like girls. I’m one of those girls and so is Sky. It’s not that I don’t like girls, it’s because girls can be really fake.
Sky just isn’t fake and I’m not fake, so I really like having at least one girl that’s fucking genuine. If something’s shit, she’ll be like, ‘That’s shit.’ We’re both at a time in our lives where I feel like we need to just get on the road and experience music again. Don’t think about labels, don’t think about singles, it’s not even about selling records any more. Sky was the one who I really wanted to come and it was just because I don’t want to be alone when I’m in fucking Oklahoma. I want to be with Sky.’
