From Twisted Twerker To Role Model: Miley Cyrus Reflects On Her Days As A Wild Child

Miley Cyrus on being a role model-1Miley Cyrus was very reflective in her cover story for the latest edition of Harper’s Bazaar. The singer looked back on her twerking days and admitted that what started out as her way of rebelling against the system soon turned into her being too sexualized.

“It became something that was expected of me. I didn’t want to show up to photo shoots and be the girl who would get my tits out and stick out my tongue,” Miley said about her racy photoshoots. “In the beginning, it was kind of like saying, ‘Fuck you. Girls should be able to have this freedom or whatever.’ But it got to a point where I did feel sexualized.”

With her twerking days behind her, Miley admits that she thought about how her risqué persona would affect the way young girls viewed her. “How can I fucking be the role model I’m supposed to be?” she questioned, but soon after realized that she’s still a role model when her boobs are out. “I think I show people that they can be themselves.”

“I also think something that has been important for me, in this next little, like, transition phase of my career is that I don’t give a fuck about being cool. I just want to be myself.”

Amateur Beyoncé Impersonator Gigi Hadid Knows Her Runway Walk Is Terrible

Gigi Hadid Compares Herself To Beyonce In Out Of This World Photo Shoot featureAnyone wishing Gigi Hadid would just leave planet Earth will love her new photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar. The model went to the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, in Florida to shoot a space-themed spread for the magazine’s June/July cover story. During the shoot, Gigi explained what sets her apart from other models.

“Have you ever seen me shoot before?” Gigi asks an interviewer form Harper’s seeing Gigi work for the first time. “I’m, like different.” The reporter asked if Gigi meant something similar to the way Beyoncé turns into Sasha Fierce on stage.

“I wouldn’t say I’m as major as Beyoncé or Sasha Fierce, but, yeah, I understand what she’s talking about,” she says. Gigi knows that, despite aiming for Sasha levels of fierceness, she’s still susceptible to her emotions on her big jobs–especially on the runway.

“Obviously I’m not the best on the runway,” she admits. “I’m flat-footed, and I pretty much have a forced arch in my foot from playing volleyball my whole life. In the last six months, my walk has really improved because I’ve started to learn how to pad my shoes correctly to support my feet. It’s like you learn little tricks, and you focus on those.”

Check out Gigi’s new covers below, plus a video of her shoot for Harper’s.

“I was a huge tomboy,” she admits about her childhood style. “I had a phase where I wore boys’ clothes. I was always hanging out with guys. I’ve always connected with guys more.”

“I’ve always been the different one,” she continues, speaking about how girly her sisters are. “I mean, I’m a girl and I like being a girl, but I’ve just never been into it like they have. I think I get that from my dad. I’d say I’m more of a Jenner than a Kardashian.”
