Miley Cyrus Covers Billboard Magazine

Miley Cyrus Covers Billboard Magazine

Miley Cyrus holds up a huge letter “M” on the cover of Billboard magazine.

The 17-year-old “Can’t Be Tamed” singer says that even though she creates pop music, she doesn’t listen to it!

Miley shared, “I listen to zero pop music, which is really weird for someone who makes pop music. My 13-year-old self would have beaten up my 17-year-old self because she would be like, ‘You’re a sellout!’ But that’s not what it is. It’s not dance music that’s just about, ‘Ooh, I’m in the club and everyone’s looking at me.’ It means something. I’m not just sitting here trying to sell glitz and glamour . . . because no one lives that life. A lot of [pop] songs are super shallow, but this music isn’t.”

    Ha. To even be considered a sell-out, its presumed that one already had talent to being with. This chick worked for Disney and now does dress up trying to be Beyonce meets Lady Gaga or some nonsense. Child please.

  • ana

    her face. lol.

  • shaleen

    She looks like she’s 25! Not good at all!!! I sense a new Lindsay Lohan in the making. And reading this little excerpt she’s an hypocrite.


    “A lot of pop songs are super shallow but this music isn’t”

    ……………..she’s not talking about her own music……IS SHE?

  • [marie]

  • blah blah blah

    she needs to stop.

  • AutumnM

    So what do you listen to then Miley? Geesh, Miley needs to get over herself. There’s nothing wrong with pop music. Some of the best and most iconic singers are/were pop singers. Miley thinks she’s so cool and edgy. She really comes across as trying too hard.

  • ilia

    I never noticed her until catching a glimpse of the latest video. It’s catchy and the special effects are really cool. Isn’t she underage? Regardless, this child is NOT talented!

  • http://j ivanka

  • Lily

  • Jermaine


  • anon

    Wow, what she said is so powerful and I’m going to support her by not listening to her new cd since the genre is so beneath her.

  • Her bro is a Rock star

    She listen to Rock and Roll and Country music. Her handlers are the onces who are pushing her to be the next Britney . She said several time that this will be her last record for sometime. She perfer acting .

  • Tori

  • Adora

    she is so annoying! her face everything

  • http://justjared anymouse

    a very talented girl, beautiful voice, just young and doesn’t know any better. let her grow up, and she will admit, how corny was that, can’t believe I even said that. like Jewel, only Jewel didn’t realize, it was her first songs are what made her famous. Jewel’s new music, don’t care for it. let Miley grow up a little. one thing you can’t deny……she had a beautiful voice.

  • mailey

    i dont think she’ll be like lindsay bec she has a way more stable upbringing and family.

  • MKhay

    Wow, stop talking…

  • Jasmine

    She is 2nd only to Lindsay Lohan in the delusional department.

  • Jokergurl

    She needs to wait until Hannah Montana gets over with before she jumps headfirst into the whole tough, sexy, pouty singer mode. Actually she needs to wait to anyway because she’s ONLY seventeen. She needs to , stop trying to pull a Britney and just be her carefree self without all the leather and attitude.

  • nessa

    She looks weird though~ sexy is just not her style .

  • muck
  • cacey

    Someone NEEDS TO TELL her to shut her CHIPMUNK mouth up.

  • JT

    she looks like a young Mandy Moore on the cover!

  • Ankka

    WOW ! all I have 2 say is: what a STUPID girl!

  • Leeah

    She is stupid. Everything that she describes is perfectly her. She is a sell-out… just a Disney star to make money…

    And her song CAN’T BE TAMED is retarded… what is that then? That song has absolutely no meaning. It is no different than any other pop song, Miles. I love how she tries to make herself deeper and more intelligent… Miley if you want to do something that means something, it’s not this dance-pop shit you are putting out.

  • sonny1234567890

    miley is the best singer in the hole world and she is so super talented.I love her new music vido “i can’t be tamed”.She said that it isn’t about being sexy it is about saying that she doesn’t want to be trapted in a cage all of her life and doing the same things.O and everybody that is comenting above and saying nasty things about miley that is called bulling and you should think twice before you say anything nasty to someone that you don’t even no.I think that her sogs are great and she should countine to make them.She is my idol good luck miley.

  • Lenne

    Her face…she looks like a duck

  • -.-

    “A lot of [pop] songs are super shallow, but this music isn’t.”

    “i go through guys like money flying out the hand…..”
    not shallow at all.

  • B

    A lot of [pop] songs are super shallow, but this music isn’t.

    I agree, I have found deep spiritual doctrine in the lyrics of Can’t Be Tamed.
    STFU, you’re looking SO dumb right now.

  • :|

    she listens to zero pop music?
    that’s why she loves both britney spears and lady gaga? ….who sing POP MUSIC?

  • Genesis

    “A lot of [pop] songs are super shallow, but this music isn’t.”

    ….Go away, Miley Cyrus.

  • LOL

    “It’s not dance music that’s just about, ‘Ooh, I’m in the club and everyone’s looking at me.’”

    “Every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention, like im under inspection
    I always get to ten cause im built like that”

    OH, OK.

  • m

    She does listen to pop music but it’s just not what she would listen to on her iPod.

  • andrea

    are you serious? what kind of parents let their kid dance around pole? or look like that in music video..she is 16! for god`s sake..can`s she just enjoy her childhood?

  • andrea


  • nata

    This is not a very smart thing to say. You have to believe in what you do, or at least pretend you do. If you say that the type of music that you sign is crap, then you are telling the public: ” Hey, don’t buy my crappy music.” You have to sell your world so people believe that is good. She needs another PR team.

  • Jen

    her music is shallow, what the hell is she talking about. what an ego

  • Tina

    Rolling Stone called out her for copying Lady Gaga alone with Christina Aguilera and Jay Z..This has got Crazy and makes me HATE GAGA and wish I never bought her CD and tickets to her show but I will say I’m done with supporting the Woman that invented all things Pop.

  • SurfingEagle

    Good girl to bad girl transformation is so cliche. They started that stuff in the 80′s you know. Maybe, try and switch that around and see what happens. At least, it would be something different for a change.

  • Jaye

    Yep, she had a WAY more stable upbringing with a father who got Miley’s Mom and another woman pregnant around the same time. Miley and her half brother, Billy Ray’s son, were both born in 1992. His son’s name is Christopher Cody. Well who can blame him; he was at the height or his career and uh, feeling his oats. Uh, huh.
    Miley has grown up ya’ll and she’s way better than those old superficial pop singers. She has all the answers, ya’ll better recognize lol. Oh, my. She’s very articulate, but she just doesn’t realize how young she really is. She thinks she’s more mature and HER music is more thought provoking than any other pop signer. I admit she can sing, although I just don’t care for her music, but she sure does have an over inflated opinion of herself.
    One reason I think Britney ‘s career has lasted this long is because she didn’t just attract preteens and teenagers; grown men were falling all over her when her first single came out. She has continued to have a diverse following and that’s what’s kept her at the top. I don’t know if Miley can do that even if she crossed over into Rock N Roll, which is what I think she wanted to do.
    As far as her career in acting goes, good luck with that. There are more than enough young woman who can act; why they’d want to put her in any worthwhile movie, I surely don’t know. It’s commendable that she wants to branch out, but if she thinks she doesn’t have control in deciding what type of music she does, wait until she goes in full acting mode. The newbie doesn’t decide and she doesn’t have any acting clout to be making demands; else she’ll always be doing kiddie movies.

  • Gab

    Miley Cyrus needs to think before she speaks. And she needs to put some pants on. Does she know that there are other kinds of pants besides her jean short shorts?

  • Jessica

    what a hottie
