It sounds like the sudden change happened for a reason! Miley Cyrus has opened up about why she underwent a make-under for the release of her new hit single ‘Malibu.’
In the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the 24-year-old stated: ‘It became something that was expected of me. I did not want to show up to photo shoots and be the girl who would get my t*ts out and stick out my tongue. In the beginning, it was kind of like saying, ‘F**k you. Girls should be able to have this freedom or whatever.’ But it got to a point where I did feel sexualized.’
She was also aware every time someone said she changed it was derogatory.
Miley then argued that change is something everybody is supposed to do, and not just once.
“I think I show people that they can be themselves. I also think something that has been important for me, in this next little, like, transition phase of my career is that I don’t give a fuck about being cool. I just want to be myself.” — @MileyCyrus opens up in our August 2017 cover story, link in bio. Interview by #jessicapressler Photography by @studioakrans Styling by @tom_van_dorpe Cyrus wears @chloe
But even though her over the top persona that she seems to have left behind brought her a lot of hate, the singer does not regret it even a bit.
Cyrus compared her Hannah Montana days to her more recent Wrecking Ball phase and claimed that even though people were shocked to see her change so drastically, she thinks it is even stranger for her to wear makeup and a wig and be told what to wear by middle aged men as a 12-year-old.
In addition, aside from changing her style Miley also revealed she is done smoking marijuana, clarifying that it’s ‘just for now.’
‘To quote the wise Justin Bieber, ‘Never say never.’ But right now I want to be clear,’ she added.
Miley also talked about her goal at this point in her career and claimed she just wants to be a good role model no matter what she is wearing.
The star ultimately wants to show people they can be themselves.
Do you believe Miley Cyrus is a good role model no matter what she wears and how she acts? What do think about her new style?
