Miley Cyrus: 'I Thought About Dropping My Last Name'
The singer opens up about her 'powerful' moniker…
Miley Cyrus has admitted that she once considered dropping her famous last name in a bid to escape people's misconceptions of her.
The 20-year-old told Notion magazine: "I was thinking about dropping the Cyrus and just being Miley but there's something powerful about the fact that my name now is like a household name."
The We Can't Stop singer continued: "People have this misconception of me that I'm just one of these kids on TV and that now I go off and party and I'm just this ratchet white girl, and I'm not."
Miley added: "I work really, really hard, I'm just in a different environment. I'm young and living in LA, which is everyone's dream, you know? I'm living it to the fullest.
"Rather than taking a blessing and making it a curse, it's just like this is what this name is now."
