Miley Cyrus Talks Making New Music, Quitting Drugs, & More

Miley Cyrus is Billboard Magazine‘s latest cover star – and is sharing tons of details about her life.

This is what the 24-year-old musician said to the mag:

On her upcoming new music:
“This record is a reflection of the fact that yes, I don’t give a fuck, but right now is not a time to not give a fuck about people. I’m ­giving the world a hug and saying, ‘Hey, look. We’re good — I love you.’ And I hope you can say you love me back.”

On quitting smoking weed: “ I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it]. I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now! That was just something that…I wanted to do. I like to surround myself with people that make me want to get better, more evolved, open. And I was noticing, it’s not the people that are stoned. I want to be super clear and sharp, because I know exactly where I want to be.”

On wanting to be taken seriously as a country artist: “I’m down for hanging with Blake [Shelton]. I actually want to take ­advantage of the fact that he’s there, [because] his fans don’t really take me seriously as a ­country artist. One, I haven’t given them that music. But I’ve got a tattoo of Johnny Cash’s autograph that he gave me when I was a ­little girl that says, ‘I’m in your corner.’ Dolly Parton is my ­fucking ­godmother. The fact that ­country music fans are scared of me, that hurts me. All the ­nipple pastie shit, that’s what I did because I felt it was part of my political movement, and that got me to where I am now. I’m evolving, and I surround myself with smart people that are evolved.”

Miley‘s new single “Malibu” will be dropping next week.

    Liam gave her an ultimatum. Funny how she was all “true to herself” “finally being the real miley” when all she actually needed was a man to stay put.

  • Clarice

    First of all, I do not like her and her songs and her boyfriend I only know superficially, so:

    WhatI think is that Liam was a good influence for her and when they broke up something changed in her life and I do not know what events led her to that unruly and rebellious life and her probably must have had
    people in her life who either cared little with that and
    they just wanted the money she could offer or a few people who really cared about her and wanted her well being were cut off from her life by herself.

    I believe that when she and Liam came back
    he made her see the choices she had made and madeher re-examine her life and seek the balance back.

    Here is not the case of the ” man ” command her life, but help in the choices of how to conduct her life.

    don’t get me wrong, I like this ~new and improved~ miley, but she says this same shit every time she “reinvents” herself… like she claims that whatever nonsense she used to get up to (in this case, the nipple pasties and drugs of the dead petz era) was all part of some carefully-crafted plan to promote a deeper “movement” and/or intentionally change her image – she did the same thing after bangerz to explain/excuse the twerking and constant appropriation of black/hip-hop culture. I don’t expect much from her so this doesn’t really bother me but it is annoying that she claims to not “give a fuck” when putting THAT much thought and effort into how people perceive her would indicate she REALLY does. imo it just seems like she’s still very immature or maybe just narcissistic (realistically, probably both) because she never acknowledges when she makes mistakes or does things that are ignorant, disrespectful, embarrassing, etc.; she just offers this same tired excuse to try to explain it away.
