Miley Cyrus: 'I'm an Adult & I'm Acting Like a Kid'

Miley Cyrus: 'I'm an Adult & I'm Acting Like a Kid'

Miley Cyrus looks elegant on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s October 2013 issue, on newsstands September 24.

Here is what the 20-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On growing up in the spotlight: “I was an adult when I was supposed to be a kid. So now I’m an adult and I’m acting like a kid.”

On having a famous father: “My parents always had money, and I’ve always been around this industry, so I didn’t have my mind blown or become obsessed with being famous.”

On her style: “I feel like every girl is trying to have a beauty shot and prove that they’re ‘fashion.’ But I can be in white leggings and a white sports bra and I’m on a whole other level of shit that those girls don’t even get yet because they don’t know how to do it.”

On her haircut: “It changed everyone else’s life more than it changed mine.”

FYI: Miley wears a Burberry Prorsum dress on the cover and inside she showcases a dress by Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane.

    I think this is very telling about child stars and how they act out when they finally become adults. I think the real problem lies within bad parenting. Look at Joseph Gordon Levitt and Natalie Portman. Their transition from child to adults seemed smooth and seamless; maybe they had more supportive parents? Her situation reeks of Britney Spears during her “I’m a Slave 4 U phase.”

    “I can be in white leggings and a white sports bra and I’m on a whole other level of shit that those girls don’t even get yet because they don’t know how to do it.”

    She is delusional, privileged, and conceited too. This girl have some nerve. She really needs to get over herself.

    And by the way, we don’t need to be reminded that you always had money.

  • Natasha (Nataliya) Stasyi

    Well, there’s some sense in her words, but I think it’s more abt the way she’s “seen” in ppl’s eyes. I can’t say it surely, but she’s not “well mature”, coz I still thinkin, that she keeps copyin Rihanna’s style. I like her, but there’s too much this “red thing” (her lips, nails). & this hair a la curly Marilyn Monroe plus used 2 be “white” Rihanna. If this what maturity means 4 Miley, ok. But even I have 2 admit, that she’s copyin (some think she copyin Gven Stefani, but idk, coz I was very young when in Gven’s era, but I think it all abt Rihanna in Miley’s image, coz Miley as young as Rihanna, so that’s the parallel. I’m also quite young, that’s why I compare Mile 2 Rihanna).

  • Love The Shoes

    My my, I had no idea how full of herself she was. She really thinks she’s all that and a twerk.

  • Love The Shoes

    @belle: Ditto to every word you said. I never was a fan but now there’s even less chance of me becoming one.

  • Lena

    wow…she really is beyond full of her self..thinks she is better than everybody…the crash will hurt Miley..

  • margi

    get ur life….all that upbringing could pay for class

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    “She didn’t become obsessed with being famous.”

    She is obsess now.

  • soho grande

    Tsk, tsk, this girl is just full of herself…completely self-absorbed and immature. Seriously honey, no one’s life changed as a result of your haircut. Please get over yourself. In the big picture and in the real world, you’re just not that important. You are an entertainer and a mediocre one at that. It’s not like you are a political figure or someone who is educated who makes public policy.

  • Love The Shoes

    @Alaia: Don’t forget Scarlett J. She’s always been pretty down to earth and the Fanning sisters. I think the telltale of it all is talent. Think about it. The more talented ones are the ones who aren’t trying to convince us they are. I do give exception (to a point) to Lindsey Lohan. I think if she keeps her act together she’ll prove she is talented and not forever a messed up grown-child.

  • Jessie

    She’s full of $hit. Nothing she does is new or inventive. She’s just doing anything she can think of to get attention. She’s not too deep for people to understand, she’s just shallow disguising itself as deep. Tell me one person whose life was changed by her haircut? Delusional? Absolutely.

  • martina

    Enough with this dumb delusional girl please! Everything she does now is a lie, nothing true about her, she just plays a role to sell her new crappy album. Good Disney girl gone bad, really shocking like we haven´t seen anything like that before. And talking fashion and style with her is irrelevant, since she is just trashy. Stop giving her so much space!

    I liked her comment about her hair … the commenters here obviously didn’t understand what she was saying … she wasn’t suggesting it was a life altering experience for anyone … she was saying they cared about it more than she did. i think humans are deevolving in part because humor that we would have understood 10 years ago is too complex to grasp for people today … she was exagerating to make it funny, not saying your life was changed by her hairstyle.

  • Katie

    No one can pull off a white sports bra white tights but MIley sure can. She knows how to do it. Hahahahahahhahaha…. How embarrassing for her. She needs to stay quite for a few months…Take a nice long vacay….

  • Katie

    Didn’t she once say she felt like the real Miley soon after her cut? She did. So yes, it did change her more than it change everyone else.

  • amanda

    @eternalozzie….No one in here is talking about that answer. They’re talking about the other answers she gave which make her sound very full of herself and immature

  • cam


    She looks stunning – gorgeous!

    I just don’t get the reason people never cut this girl a break. So what – she “shocked” everyone by her MTV performance – MTV VMA’s are always shocking. I give her credit for “reinventing” her music career after the last album & the way her former label did not promote it. When you are this young & in the entertainment businesss you want to remain in it & relevant – Well she is all anyone is talking about & her music is breaking records for her – good for her. If it was good enough for Britney & Madona when they were younger, why not Miley – she’s almost 21 not 15 like Brooke Shields when she posed nude on Rolling Stone magazine.

  • talia

    someone should really tell miley that her fashion sense is terrible

  • Dumb and superficial

    Miley is ugly, inside and outside!

  • Jordy

    Um she was the one that says her haircut changed her life and that she never felt more herself with it. She’s idiotic.

  • martina

    @talia: what fashion sense? :D

  • amanda

    Conceited and privileged white trash, what’s new?


    “I feel like every girl is trying to have a beauty shot and prove that they’re ‘fashion.’ But I can be in white leggings and a white sports bra and I’m on a whole other level of $hit that those girls don’t even get yet because they don’t know how to do it.”

    ROFLMFAOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now shes trying to talk like Jay-z acting so serious saying that quote, HAH!

    NO miley, you do NOT know how to do it. you’re showing girls what you think is ‘fashion’ when in reality you look like a big tryhard and very tacky on instagram. everybody has described your style as ‘trashy’ over and over again but from a fashionable viewpoint, you putting your whole body in layers and layers of gaudy gold and diamond chanel jewelry and a hideous bondage-themed Saint Laurent dress does not make you look ‘chic’ or ‘sexy’, you look like an absolute idiot that believes in their own hype. thank god anna wintour got the memo just in time to cancel your vogue cover. just cause you were born into money and can afford the clothes at saks or barneys, doesnt mean you’re automatically stylish. you really can’t fix stupid. very arrogant girl

  • cyruses

    Why does she think she’s more than whoever else thinks? Does she deserve anything different from others? Why?

  • Kellyf

    I’m embarrassed for her. She lives in such a small bubble of people telling her that she’s a huge deal, that she’ll never get that to 99% of the world, she is a joke. She doesn’t seem even capable of understanding that no one sees her as anything but a petulant and obnoxious child.

  • Chelsey

    Did she honestly do this interview with a straight face? How ridiculous. Is there anyone out there more delusional or just plain effing crass as this twit? Don’t think so.

  • yawn

    @belle: agree with everything especially the last sentence of your comment.

    she obsesses more about fame than 90% of this questionable industry, shes on the upper register of the egomaniac a$$holes. thats why shes getting fame as the “laughing stock”, you are the jester to this industry but we are all laughing AT YOU, not with you.

    seriously, you are a delusional little girl. good to know your true colors showed in this interview when you shouldve honestly shut the F up. why do “smilers” exist? why does that idiotic “fanbase” keep defending QUEEN DUMBA$$

  • Jimmy

    Stupid arrogant girl makes me mad every time she opens her mouth. She is a mean, arrogant person. Her looks are irrelevant – her heart is ugly. And this- “I definitely don’t have time to deal with a wedding right now,” the 20-year old tells the magazine. “But I will at some point.”


    You keep telling yourself that.

  • Jimmy

    @cam: maybe you should actually READ THE THINGS SHE SAYS. That’s why people can’t stand her. Open your eyes.

  • Courtney

    Yeah… her hair cut really changed my life *facepalm*

  • Joam

    It is not because she is wearing the nice or expensives clothes, or she is everywhere, in all the magazine covers she is “chic”, she is VULGAR AND NOT CHIC OF ALL she is complety vulgar and ordinary, the only this cute is her face, but better to shut up,
    I M REALLY SURPRISE A so nice magazine put this vulgar girl,
    what decadent!
    I HOPE VOGUE will not fall as low!!!
    she is trash get her to junk lol

  • Joam

    ITS not because she is wearing nice and expensives clothes, makes her a CHIC persone, she is vulgar!
    she is an exemple of that!, you can be cute, have money and be famous, but your behavior talk for you and show your education and your origins
    yes she is cute BUT! better better to shut up
    dont be stupide and look what is trash or junk!

    I hope Vogue will not fall as low!!!

  • Sophie

    She’s so full of herself. She has an awful voice and she’s not even pretty!

  • Just sayin’

    lol!!!!!!!!! I agree!!!

  • Edie

    No, you’re an adult and you’re acting like a porn star.

  • Leah

    Am I the only one who thinks that for once she actually looks decent? She looks pretty and although I find her behaviour very concerning, I do not think anyone is helping her by insulting her online. Her parents should take care of her. I find it rather apalling that her father thinks this is what the “Pop Business” is all about, Stripping on stage and getting naked in Videos. I’m afraid she is going to have a breakdown like Britney did. Her behaviour is very odd.

  • ohlala

    1st: she isnt showing her panties or bra in this cover! what a shock!
    and 2nd: i dont know who she meets that changed their lives because of her new (and awful) haircut, but it didn’t change my life at all!

  • Mkhay

    she’s cray

  • rdh

    @martina: I absolutely agree! The more attention she gets in the tabloids, the more she will do. Give all of us a break and stop enabling this spoiled brat !

  • cliniqueheart

    I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST MILEY CYRUS!! Let’s just give her the life she wants to live. *wink*

  • Lucy

    Adults wearing clothes too

  • Miley Cyrus Piano Sheets

    I liked her when she was Hilary Duff wannabe.

    Now she’s Rihanna wannabe and it’s looks ugly. Uglyness is not art
