Miley Cyrus Gets Real with Rolling Stone & Drops “23” and “Wrecking Ball” Director’s Cut Music Videos
It was a busy day for Miley Cyrus today! Not only did she drop two new music videos, but she graces the latest cover of Rolling Stone.
First up, Miley appears in Mike Will Made It’s music video for “23” and she just released the director’s cut video for “Wrecking Ball.” Check out both below.
In Miley’s Rolling Stone feature, the 20-year-old opens up about her childhood, Justin Bieber, the VMAs and more. She even ended up getting a “Rolling $tone” tattoo on her feet during the interview. Check out some highlights.
On getting a pep talk from Kanye West: “He came in and goes, ‘There are not a lot of artists I believe in more than you right now,'” she recalls. “The whole room went quiet. I was like, ‘Yo – can you say that again?!'”
On her VMAs performance: “Honestly, that was our MTV version. We could have even gone further, but we didn’t. I thought that’s what the VMAs were all about! It’s not the Grammys or the Oscars. You’re not supposed to show up in a gown, Vanna White-style…It’s supposed to be fun! No one is talking about the man behind the ass,” Miley says. “It was a lot of ‘Miley Twerks on Robin Thicke,’ but never, ‘Robin Thicke Grinds Up on Miley.’ So obviously there’s a double standard.”
On her neighbor Steve Carrell: “He always gives me the stank-eye because I drive so fast,” Miley says. “The other day I was trying to reverse and I almost hit a thousand things, and I was getting nervous because I could see him going” – she crosses her arms and lets out a big, annoyed sigh. “I’m like, oh, my God, Dan in Real Life is watching me right now!”
On if she hangs with Justin Bieber: “A little bit but not really. I’m not much older than him, so I never want it to feel like I’m mentoring him. But I do mentor him in a way. Because I’ve been doing this shit for a long time, and I already transitioned, and I don’t think he’s quite done it yet.”
