We already got a peek at Miley Cyrus' Elle Magazine cover, but now the real goodies have hit the web -- her interview quotes and some sexy interior photos!
The 21-year-old pop star is interviewed by 17-year-old Rookie magazine editor/fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson, and the ladies discuss everything from Liam Hemsworth to Miley's rise from child stardom.
Miley jumps right into it and says she's in a better place now because of everything she's been through:
"You know, I'm really thankful that I started on Disney. I got the most intense training. There's times where I wish I could have just started as a new artist, but the world has kind of allowed me to do that. I feel really lucky—a lot of kid stars get all crazy or stuck in what they were, so they can't actually become what they're meant to be. When I went through a really intense breakup—you know, I was engaged—and when I was with him or when I was on Disney, the thing that gave me the most anxiety was not knowing what to do with myself when Disney wasn't there to carry me anymore or if I didn't have him. And now I'm free of both of those things, and I'm fine. Like, I lay in bed at night by myself and I'm totally okay, and that's so much stronger than the person three years ago, who would have thought they would have died if they didn't have a boyfriend."
Miley also admits to struggling with depression, and she tells the mag, “It’s totally okay to feel sad. I went through a time where I was really depressed. Like, I locked myself in my room and my dad had to break my door down. It was a lot to do with, like, I had really bad skin, and I felt really bullied because of that. But I never was depressed because of the way someone else made me feel, I just was depressed.”
So what about her stance on feminsm? "I still don't think we're there 100 percent," she says. "I mean, guy rappers grab their crotch all f*cking day and have hos around them, but no one talks about it. But if I grab my crotch and I have hot model b*tches around me, I'm degrading women? I'm a woman -- I should be able to have girls around me! But I'm part of the evolution of that. I hope." Well put, Miley.
And speaking of grabbing her crotch, the "Adore You" singer didn't end up taking the stage in Charlotte, North Carolina on Monday, as she cancelled her concert just 30 minutes before show time. According to a message posted on the Time Warner Cable arena's website, the show was cancelled because "Cyrus has been diagnosed with the flu and doctors have ordered her to rest." Given the fact that Miley has been mourning the death of her dog Floyd for the last week, it sounds like she needs a mental health day too...
