UPDATE 9/5/2013 1:40 p.m. (PT)

Stop the presses! The interview in which Miley supposedly said “I am so f--ked up” may not the real deal as in the publication Sunday People may have used old interview quotes to make it sound like the 20-year-old was talking about herself post-VMAs

That, at least, is what the pop star’s rep told Just Jared. “She only did one interview since VMAs and that’s not it,” her rep reportedly said. “She sat down with MTV for her upcoming [documentary]. We haven’t released that interview yet. Someone did some creative editing of an old interview.” Bad news for Sunday People, good news for Miley.

ORIGINAL STORY 9/1/2013 4:32  p.m. (PT)

Miley Cyrus has been in the spotlight quite a bit this week following her shocking VMAs twerking performance. Now, she is revealing that her life has been anything but a party in the USA.

Miley tells Sunday People that her life hasn't been an easy one. "I have so many f**king issues," she admits. "I am so f**ked up  everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up." Wow! 

"I don’t have a normal life," the 20-year-old star adds. "I take a hiatus every now and again, but I’m not good at that." 

Miley also confesses that she has trouble sleeping. "All I do is work, so I eat to live and to keep going," Miley explains. "People are impressed with me because I can sleep for just 45 minutes  I’m used to it."
 
"I suppose I am a workhorse. I love being in the studio, and when I take vacation, I get so bored," she continues. "I think of work as something that I have to do."

We're impressed that Miley is so willing to open up, but it definitely sounds like she is feeling pressure to keep her career going. And her personal life sounds rather chaotic as well.

We're wishing Miley the best as she finds what makes her happy. And for starters, let's hope she stays far away from foam fingers in the near future.
