As soon as we first saw Miley Cyrus’s nude cover for W, we knew it’d be a good story — and we were right. Interviewed by Ronan Farrow (son of actress Mia Farrow and director Woody Allen), Miley opens up about everything from being accused of racism after her performances to how she really doesn’t understand what the kids are wearing these days.
“I just don’t get what half the girls are wearing,” Miley admitted to the mag (in light of the fact that most of those girls also don’t get what she is wearing). “Everyone to me seems like Vanna White. I’m trying to tell girls, like, “F—k that. You don’t have to wear makeup. You don’t have to have long blonde hair and big titties. That’s not what it’s about. It’s like, personal style.’”
“I like that I’m associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock s— where we just don’t care,” Miley added.
And although Miley acknowledges she’s been criticized for some of her decisions — like her use of little people on stage, as well as hiring exclusively black dancers — she’s not too worried about that, either. She’s not Hannah Montana anymore, and she has no one to answer to but herself.
“I’m not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl to be politically correct, and like, everyone has bright-colored t-shirts,” Miley said. “I’m not making any kind of statement.”
So how does Miley keep from letting the haters — and lately, there are many — from getting to her? “Anyone who hates on you is below you, because they’re just jealous of what you have,” she said.
