Miley Cyrus is on the cover of the new issue of Billboard, and PerezHilton.com has an exclusive preview of the article.
Our favorite bits are when the Disney slut talks about her passion for songwriting and the such.
She's such an "artist."
Hey, at least she's ambitious!
On Vanity Fair
“I was embarrassed… but also it’s like, every career thing that I do can’t be perfect, and sometimes my decisions are wrong. I think that just makes me even more relatable. I don’t think people will look at me any differently because they’re like,’You know what, I’m going to do stupid stuff too, and I’m going to make mistakes, and that’s fine.’ It still hurts when I think about it.”
On the new album
“It’s grown-up. I wrote all the songs except two. My last one, ‘Meet Miley Cyrus,’ was more just meeting me, finding out who I am, and here it’s more getting in depth of what’s been going on in my life in the past year.”
On her passion for songwriting
I wrote my first song when I was probably 7–it was called “Pink.” That shows what kind of song it was about—it’s about the color pink. But you know what, darn it, I wrote it and I’ve been writing since I was my little sister’s age.
In regards to fans being shut out of her last tour
In terms of the kids who couldn’t get in, I don’t know if I could do more–we did 76 shows last year and I don’t know that I could do more than that.
Maybe I could do that and take a little break and go back into it? Also, the 3-D movie was awesome for the people that didn’t get to come see the show.
On Hannah Montana
It will wrap up, eventually. I mean, I won’t be Hannah Montana by the time I’m 30. But we’ve only done two seasons, so we definitely want to work on that hopefully for another two years.
On acting in an “edgy, indie flick” not related to Disney or Hannah Montana
I’ve been talking to people about some cool movies, but right now I mostly want to stay within my company and keep them happy and keep everything that we’re doing successful and focus on that. I like to do everything that I do 120% and unless I can focus hardcore on that, I don’t want to do it yet.
On trying to be a role model
It’s something that I’ve been super blessed with, that I’ve had the opportunity and the ability to spread the light. That doesn’t mean that I’m not going to make mistakes and do things that everyone’s going to be happy with, because there¹s no such thing as perfection.
I just like to be the role model that doesn’t say you have to be perfect all the time.
On her show recently being highlighted your show as being great for young women in that it showcases a wide range of body types.
I stress about that stuff like everyone else, but at the end of day, I’m a good ol’ Southern girl that likes her Cracker Barrel at 9 o’clock at night and if I want it, gosh darn, I’m going to eat it. I’m not going to make myself miserable. And for so many girls, you don’t want to be thin because you want the guy to think you’re gorgeous or whatever–you do it all for women, you do it all for a competition. That’s so silly, it’s such a game.
[Why] waste your time with a game you’re never going to win?
