Miley Cyrus opens up to Billboard magazine in which she covers about her upcoming album and transforming into Miley 2.0.
Now at 20, Miley says that she is far removed from who she was as a teen in those Hannah Montana days.
“Right now, when people go to iTunes and listen to my old music, it’s so irritating to me because I can’t just erase that stuff and start over,” says Cyrus. “My last record [2009's EDM-inflected Can't Be Tamed] I feel so disconnected from — I was 16 or 17 when I made it.”
“When you’re in your 20s, you just don’t really know that person anymore.”
“I want to start as a new artist,” says Cyrus. “I consider my upcoming album my first, really.”
And on her new single We Can’t Stop, that has caused some controversy.
“I’m 20 years old and I want to talk to the people that are up all night with their friends. It’s based on a true story of a crazy night I had: When I heard the song for the first time, it captured exactly what I was living.”
As for her new style she says,
“A lot of people wanted to try to make me the white Nicki Minaj,” she reveals. “That’s not what I’m trying to do. I love ‘hood’ music, but my talent is as a singer.”
She says that she is always changing, not only by the years but even by the weeks.
“That’s been kind of a trip: It’s not like I’m losing who I am — I actually found out more about who I am by making this music. I’m going on a journey, and that’s more than a lot of 20-year-olds can say,” continues Cyrus. “And I’m still going to change so much. Because I’m not the same person I was six months ago — I’m not even the same person I was two weeks ago.”
