Take that, Anna Wintour!
The singer's newest spread is in the latest issue of YOU magazine, and features a lot of what we've come to expect from Mileybird: semi-nudity, provocative posing, and some tongue action.
But instead of talking about how next-level her style is, she recounts her mom's initial reaction to her haircut, saying:
"Yeah, when I did it my mom was shocked at first and tripped out – I mean, she’s got the whole long blonde hair thing going on – but now she loves it and wouldn’t have me with it any other way."
The 20-year-old also explains her reasoning behind the somewhat polarizing hairstyle. She said:
"I’m trying to break out of that long hair, big boobs stereotype that women feel they have to conform to. I mean, we’re not living in the freakin’ 1950s – short hair is OK. Have people really got so little imagination? Every morning I look in the mirror and I feel like a blank canvas and I choose who I want to be. In a normal job you have to live by someone else’s rules, but I’m in a job where my work is play and I don’t have to pretend to be something I’m not."
Miley, your true self is highly entertaining right now. Don't ever feel the need to pretend!
