The Seven Classiest Quotes From Miley Cyrus’ ‘Billboard’ Cover Story

By now we all know it—Miley Cyrus simply can’t be tamed. Her outfits show it. Her behavior shows it. Heck—even Dancing With The Stars has shown it. But now that the critics have weighed in on the 17-year-old Hannah Montana star’s music video for “Can’t Be Tamed,” let’s read what Miley herself has to say about her new grown up image, direct from this week’s Billboard cover story.

Here are the seven classiest quotes we rounded up from Miley Cyrus’ Billboard cover piece:

* On pop music: “I listen to zero pop music, which is really weird from someone who makes pop music.”

* On making 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!’”

* On her new album: “I’m not just sitting here trying to sell glitz and glamour. A lot of [pop] songs are super shallow, but this music isn’t.”

* On her “Can’t Be Tamed” video: “I’m definitely going to be doing a lot more stuff like that.”

* On Lady Gaga: “Unlike a lot of artists, all her music does mean something to her personally.”

* On Glee: “Honestly, musicals? I just can’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?” [Note: We think that would be amazing.]

* After pondering her previous statement: “It would get hits on YouTube.”

So let’s assess: pop’s reigning princess dislikes pop music and Glee, makes music that isn’t “shallow” and promises that her more adult image won’t be going away anytime soon.

What do you think about Miley’s classy Billboard quotes?

    I honestly think that Miley is growing up with a great head on her shoulders. She is smart, knows what she’s doing, knows where she wants to go, and she is an honest gem. I personally think that Glee is fun, but she is right that if you break into song on the street it’s a one way ticket to a beating or a mental institution. I’ve been a fan for a few years now, and I am very excited for the new album and what the future holds for her.

    I think Miley is speaking without thinking. And when she’s talking about “other artists” whose music means nothing to them, she’s also referring to herself. She makes pop music, and she doesn’t listen to pop music and she even calls herself a sellout. Come on, man.

  • sasha

    she refers to herslef as a sellout when she was 13! probably cuz all that disney stuff but i personally love miley!!

  • btdubz

    I totally dig how miley is growing up now. Despite Hannah Montana get herself out there, everyone hated it that wasn’t in middle school. Now she’s really getting out of that HM thing and Disney and starting to really let herself come out.

    I just hope all mothers out there, whose daughters love Hannah Montana listen to Miley Cyrus, realize her music and lyrics are starting to become more mature and don’t start ratting on her for it. She’s gonna grow up someday, she can’t be 16 year old Hannah Montana forever.

    Most of the comments above are sounding too much like Jill Zarin self-promotions.

  • Cristian goristieta

    well I’ve really tried so many times to defend her but it’s so hard when she comes off as dumb as she does.
    I don’t oppse her growin up and doing new things,
    but she has no logic! At all.
    I can’t even believe how shallow and stupid she makes herself sound in this interview!
    It seems like she has no passion for what she does
    She always contradicts herself.
    I’m starting to not like her as much as I did.

    i dislike miley cyrus with the burning passion of one thousand suns.
    besides the vanity fair images, ive seen pictures of her when she was at the age she was when she started hannah montana, of her pulling her shirt up with her teeth and hands and laying down on her side with a shirt but no bra and her nipples popping out. and i think the green bra picture went pretty viral also.
    and i dont get why parents still let their seven year olds go to her shows where shes vibrating her body and humping the stage.
    the cant be tamed video was terrible.
    she was also in sex and the city 2, playing herself, and although she wasnt in any of these scenes, the movie had hardcore sex scenes in it. she says shes a fan of sex and the city, so she supports and likes said scenes.
    also, in older interviews, she states that she looks up to ashlee simpson, who lipsynchs and said she loved her big nose, because it had character, then got a nose job. maybe shes molding herself after her hypocritical role models?

    She is nuts.

    To the author of this piece: Stop being such a p*ssy. So she doesn’t like Glee neither does approximately 297 million other people in this country who don’t watch it. Get over it. I don’t think its that unusual for someone not to listen to pop music. Perhaps she does and is lying but your making a big deal out of nothing. Now if you want to criticize her for portraying a mature image at an immature age then by all means you have grounds to criticize.

    Miley Cyrus is a moron. Of course she listens to pop music. Jonas brothers…Hello? Are you telling me she’s dated one but doesnt listen to their music? Yeah okay whatever. How does she know Lady Gaga’s songs mean a lot to her if she doesnt listen to pop? She said that her 13 year old self would beat up her 17 year old self for making pop music…okay so you make pop music at 17, what did you make at 13, heavy metal? Hannah Montana was and is pop. This girl is stupid.

  • Markie

    Pure silliness. She would be wise not to insult other Pop singers. I hope she never gets on a musical either, yuck.

  • Garland Ardito

    I adore Miley. She is totally such a sweetie. . I love her style and I think she is such a beautiful girl. All the haters out there are just jealous!

  • Suzy Rutledge

    Lady Gaga is so talented!
