Miley Cyrus Responds to People Asking for the Old Miley Back

Miley Cyrus Responds to People Asking for the Old Miley Back

Miley Cyrus is looking amazing on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s August 2017 issue, on newsstands July 25.

The 24-year-old entertainer is talking all about “being cool,” her evolution, and more. Here’s what she shared…

On her evolution personally and musically: “People get told that it’s a bad thing to change. Like, people will say, ‘You’ve changed.’ And that’s supposed to be derogatory. But you are supposed to change all the time… People have known me since I was so young, they think they know me. I heard so many comments like, ‘We just want Miley back.’ But you can’t tell me who that is. I’m right here.”

On being a role model: “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 f—k about being cool. I just want to be myself.”

On her ‘shocking’ behavior in the past: “People were so shocked by some of the things that I did. It should be more shocking that when I was 11 or 12, I was put in full hair and makeup, a wig, and told what to wear by a group of mostly older men. I didn’t want to become any sort of man hater because I love all humans; I am a humanitarian. Beyoncé said, ‘Girls run the world,’ and that was an important thing to say because I think subconsciously we are beaten down to believe that it isn’t true our whole lives. It’s no wonder that a lot of people lose their way and lose who they really are because they always have people telling them who to be.”

FYI: Miley is wearing a Missoni sweater on the cover.
