Miley Cyrus in Billboard: I've Grown Up a Lot

by at . Comments

In a Billboard cover story, Miley Cyrus sounds both mature and cocky.

First, she admits that she's come a long way since she auditioned for Hannah Montana at the age of 12:

"I'm just at a certain place where I've changed a lot as a person. I've grown up a lot, which everyone does."

That's certainly true, but not everyone talks about her music as if it's full of heart, soul and profound meaning that simply can't be found in the pop world. Check out how Cyrus describes her upcoming album:

"I listen to zero pop music, which is really weird for someone who makes pop music. My 13-year-old self would have beaten up my 17-year-old self because she would be like, 'You're a sellout!' But that's not what it is.

"It's not dance music that's just about, 'Ooh, I'm in the club and everyone's looking at me.' It means something. I'm not just sitting here trying to sell glitz and glamour... because no one lives that life. A lot of [pop] songs are super shallow, but this music isn't."

Actually, Miles, your music is EXACTLY like that. The lyrics to "Can't Be Tamed" include these lines: Have to get my way/24 hours a day/‘Cause I’m hot like that/Every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention...

That's more super shallow than most kiddie pools.


i absolutly agree with miley fan and i actually think the same way miley does. i too barely listen to pop music because face it it's super shallow but miley and taylor swift are the only pop singers i like cause their music comes from the heart...their music is real and honest. and the song can't be tamed isn't about how hot miley is or how sexy she is. the song is about how no matter what you'll do you can't control her you can't tame her and that's what almost every teenager in the world feels so back off haters cause you're just jealous of miley cause she is super talented and gorgeous and smart and one of the things i like most about her is that she's honest and she's not afraid to be herself in front of everyone she tells her fans exectly who she is and she's not afraid to "damage" her dysney image and if i were her i would do all of the things she did


Miley is a girl of her own dat does her and not anybody elsf so quit bein a jelouse b!tch


Miley is such a freakin diva:-)


i love miley cyrus. and i dont think she's being cocky at all to be honest. your just jealous of her! she's amazing and really good at singing and acting. If i was as big a star as her i would be saying what she's saying too! she was 12 at doing hannah montana and now she's 17 so obviously she's going to change and become more mature and grow up alot. everyone's going to if your famous or not. i love i cant be tamed. and also i love every one of her songs! and there not about clubbing and stuff, her music is all about the lyrics! that's all. Most her fans will follow her throughout the time she's growing up! & im one of her fans. If you haters out there dont like miley or disrespect her then why you wasting your time reading all this stuff! MILEY CYRUS IS AMAZING. AND I HOPE SHE DOESN'T GO DOWN HILL THROUGH ALL THESE PEOPLE BEING PISSED OFF ABOUT HER!


I used to have a lot of respect for her until recently. The ironic thing is she claims her pop music isn't about clubbing and what not, but party in the USA states "get to the club in my taxi cab, everyones looking at me now." Which okay, doesn't mean glitz and glamour, but then she comes out with "cant be tamed." number one, i don't know anyone that wants to tame Miley Cyrus. She sounds cocky in the song, claiming it runs in her DNA, girl please. No one wants to tame billy ray either.
