The 17-year-old pop star chatted with the mag about her new music video, Glee and not listening to any pop music. Check it:
On her music video for “Can’t Be Tamed:” Before the video debuted Cyrus told Billboard, â€œYouâ€™re going to, like, die when you see the birdcage in the video because itâ€™s so crazy. Iâ€™ve got, like, 30 dancers in there and a tree and a nest. Literally, itâ€™s out of control. Iâ€™m definitely going to be doing a lot more stuff like that.â€
On her own musical tastes: “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, â€˜Youâ€™re a sellout!â€™ But thatâ€™s not what it is. Itâ€™s not dance music thatâ€™s just about, â€˜Ooh, Iâ€™m in the club and everyoneâ€™s looking at me.â€™ It means something. Iâ€™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 isnâ€™t.”
On her inspirations: â€œWith anythingâ€”the clothes I wear or the way I want to lookâ€” I donâ€™t plan it. Even with the video [ for 'Canâ€™t Be Tamed'] I had the treatment, but beyond that, it was whatever comes. We didnâ€™t have all the choreography set in stone because I didnâ€™t want it to end up looking fake and polished. Everything in life has to come naturally or I feel like itâ€™s just been done.”
On Glee: “Honestly, musicals? I just canâ€™t. What if this was real life and I was just walking down the street on Rodeo Drive and all of a sudden I just burst into song about how much I love shoes? (laughs) It would get hits on YouTube.”
