Miley Cyrus is known for her wild and outspoken persona. However, it seems that she is somewhat backtracking on several of her bold statement from the recent past.
In a new interview, the pop and country singer has seemingly been left eating her words over what she said that if President Donald Trump became the president, she would leave the country, as well as the naked appearance she made in her 2013 music video for Wrecking Ball.
When she was asked whether she regrets making the bold Trump-related statement in the run-up to 2016 Election, she said: “I didn’t leave the country, I’m not f**king leaving the country, that’s some ignorant s**t, that’s dumb. Because that’s me abandoning my country when I think I’ve got a good thing to say to my country.”
“And trust me, I hear every day on my Instagram, “Just leave already! When are you going to leave?” Well, that’s not going to be any good.”
“Does it really matter where I am? Because wherever I am, my f**king voice is gonna be heard, and I’ll make sure of it,” Miley said.
When asked about the infamous Wrecking Ball video, in which she role totally nude on the ball piece of a demolition machinery, Miley said: “I think people look at things that they’ve done and there is this sense of shame, or “I wish I wouldn’t have done that” – not because I’m naked, by the way; it’s because I feel like I’m in a deeper songwriting place.”
“Lyrically I’m less impressed with that song for me right now. I feel like it doesn’t reflect who I am now, but that’s fine because it’s not supposed to.” Miley added.
Miley is about to release her latest record, Younger Now, which she says reflects who she is now: “I think I have more of an open mind where I’m like, “OK, I can be a bunch of different things every day”, I don’t have to be so locked into myself because then I’m putting those walls and borders around myself that I tell everyone else not to give in to.”
“In a way, Younger Now is really about ageism and sexism too because I feel like as women get older it’s so hard, and I’m watching Madonna do it with such grace and such style and people still attack her… People just want to talk about how she shouldn’t do a f**king cartwheel at the Super Bowl and it’s like, why? Why can’t you still wear a grill, why can’t you still be a part of pop culture?”
Dolly Parton, Miley’s godmother, is on the album and Rainbowland is the name of the song they wrote together.
“It’s about all these different races and genders and religions if we all did come together to create and said, “Hey, we’re different, that’s awesome, let’s not change to be the same, let’s stay different but let’s come together anyway,” she explained.
“Because a rainbow’s not a rainbow without all the different colors.”
