Miley Cyrus 'Doesn't Like' Cocaine, Calls Weed 'Best Drug'
Here’s what else the 20-year-old entertainer had to share:
On drug use: “I think weed is the best drug on earth. One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon. Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And molly, too. Those are happy drugs— social drugs. They make you want to be with friends. You’re out in the open. You’re not in a bathroom. I really don’t like coke. It’s so gross and so dark. It’s like what are you, from the ’90s? Ew.”
On race and pop music: “Me and [producer] Mike WiLL were talking about it. He said, ‘For me, my biggest achievement has been working with a white girl—but for a white girl to work and associate with black producers, you’re being ratchet.’ He’s like, ‘Why am I on the come-up if I work with you, but if you work with me, it’s like you’re trying to be hood?’ It’s a double-standard. I didn’t really realize it, but people are still racist. It’s kind of insane. Like if I had come out [at the VMAs] with all white-girl dancers, and done the fucking ‘Cha Cha Slide— same outfit, same everything — it wouldn’t have been bad. But because of who I came out with, people got upset. Because they were girls from the club. They had thick asses. They were twerking.”
On her “Wrecking Ball” video: It’s the opposite of the VMAs. It’s like the Sinead O’Connor video [for 'Nothing Compares 2 U'], but, like, the most modern version. I wanted it to be tough but really pretty — that’s what Sinead did with her hair and everything. I think people are going to hate it, they’re going to see my ass and be like, “Oh my God, I can’t believe she did that” — and then when we get to the bridge, they’re gonna have a little tear and be like, ‘F*ck you!’ I think it will be one of those iconic videos too. I think it’s something that people are not gonna forget. Hopefully an artist 30 years from now will be like ‘Yo you remember that Miley Cyrus video? We gotta do something like that.’”
