Good! Because you can’t replicate perfection! Ha!
Even though Madonna was her second choice, she still gushed about the legend, and how Miley wants to follow in her footsteps… sort of.
“I hope I’m next to the young one, the up and comer in the whatever it is… I want to always embrace new artists. I want to continue to evolve with the artists. That’s what’s so cool about Madonna doing that. Not looking at me as someone that just looks at her and tries… because I’m not trying to replicate her or be her. We’re standing for a similar freedom.”
What an awesome outlook on the situation!
We’re all for embracing new artists, and we LOVE that Miley feels this way because she’s got a long career ahead of her!
