Miley Cyrus: "I Wish I Could Be Who I Am Without Fame"
Wrecking Ball star opens up about stardom, being sexy & the VMAs...
Miley Cyrus may be one of the most talked about celebrities on the planet, but the former Robin Thicke at the Dolly Parton’s my godmother. She’s taught me a lot about how you treat people. She always says hi to the person on the bottom of the call sheet. I love that.
"The best advice I’ve been given was from Cyndi Lauper – she told me to go and lasso the moon, meaning don’t be afraid of anything. Just go and do anything you want to. I thought that was pretty cool and poetic.”
The Wrecking Ball hitmaker went on to say she's "proud" of who she is, admitting: "I have a good reputation. I’m a really loyal person and if I dig you, I’m all the way down. But if you f**k me over, I’m all the way up. It’s like, once shame on you, twice shame on me.
"You’re the dumb one if you let someone back into your life and they s**t on you again.”
After being named this year's Sexiest Woman by Maxim mag, when asked if feels she is living up to her sexy persona, Miley added: "I’m a feminist in the way that I’m really empowering to women… I’m loud and funny and not typically beautiful.
“When do I feel at my sexiest? After I’ve eaten something really healthy and done Pilates, and I’m wearing tight leggings. When I’m in gym clothes I actually feel sexy and healthy, so sometimes I’ll stay in them all day!”
