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.
