Miley Cyrus Talks To Barbara Walters About Her Public Perception:
“I’m Either Boring Or I’m A Sl*t”
Barbara Walters named Miley Cyrus one of the Top Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013. The two sat down to discuss Miley’s drastic image change, where she sees herself in 10 years, her wagging tongue, why she wears revealing outfits, her breakup with Liam Hemsworth and the public’s perception of her.
On if she regrets anything from the past year.
Not at all. It wasn’t just to shock people. It was really with a purpose. To make everyone in the world be talking about me and my music, which right now it is.
On shedding her Hanna Montana image
I really feel like every day I’m figuring it out. People that know me, they see me change every week, every two weeks. I’m changing and learning so much. Especially now that I feel like I found more of my independence. I don’t think I was ever really happy with who I was.
On if she always wants to be naked
I don’t always wanna be naked. I came out in a full Marc Jacobs dress fully covered. And they wrote ‘Miley is boring.’ She doesn’t get naked and she’s boring. No matter what I do, I’m either boring or I’m a sl*t.
On why she always sticks her tongue out.
Because I get nervous taking pictures. I stick my tongue out because I don’t know what else to do
On the perception that she’s desperate.and deeply troubled.
I know I’m not, so that’s why I just kind of laugh. because I feel like the people who are saying that … I don’t know exactly who is saying that because I refuse to Google myself. The minute I stopped Googling myself, you don’t imagine what a happier person I am.
