Miley Cyrus has been seen as a rebel by many but in a new raw interview for W Magazine out today, Cyrus tells Ronan Farrow (yup, Mia Farrow’s son) that this “new her” is no mistake — her look and actions are calculated and are even a reflection of her childhood.
“I just don’t get what half the girls are wearing. Everyone to me seems like Vanna White. I’m trying to tell girls, like, ‘Fuck that. You don’t have to wear makeup. You don’t have to have long blonde hair and big titties. That’s not what it’s about. It’s, like, personal style.’ I like that I’m associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock shit where we just don’t care,” Cyrus shares.
Exploring her transition from Disney pop-star Hannah Montana to her edgy Bangerz self, Miley opens up about her parents’ influence on her life, growing up in Tennessee (which she associates spending time in nature with why she feels comfortable naked), how she feels about children (she doesn’t like them and thinks kids these days are too entitled), all the places she wishes she could go and things she wants to do (like visit Kenya).
Miley leads a much simpler life than she appears. She doesn’t like fancy sit-down dinners and she prefers staying inside. “Why go to a movie? I’ve got a huge-ass TV. We’ve got a chef here that can make you great food. We don’t need to leave. I would just rather be here where I’m completely locked in.”
Honesty is so hard to come by, especially in Hollywood, and if this interview is one thing, it’s honest. Even if I don’t agree with her choices (in the interview she rambles on about loving weed and loving getting stoned) at least she’s being who she wants to be and that I respect. (And I can’t say I’m not jealous that she has everything she needs in her house and never has to leave.)
