Miley: My Dad Feared Britney Stripper Effect
Star says Billy Ray Cyrus was worried she'd follow in Britters' footsteps...
Speaking in MTV's new documentary Miley: The Movement, the 20-year-old explained that seeing Britters in her heyday had inspired her to plan her own career.
She said: "For me that's when I got into music. I want to give people that again, videos that are out of control and performances that you can't believe.
"My dad, I remember when the Slave 4 U video came out he shook his head and was like, 'My girl's going to turn into a stripper, I'm scared' because I wanted to be hot like Britney."
And she is also seen telling Britney that she had originally planned to go topless at the VMAs, but had been negotiated down to her now famous flesh-coloured latex ensemble.
"I tried to go there but I don't think MTV's going to allow it," she explained. "I'm like, 'What about nude latex', they're like, 'Hmm, I don't know'."
Miley is also shown going into a sweary rant after her planned arrival in a police vehicle was messed-up by her limo driver taking her directly to the red carpet instead.
She says: "Don't show me. This been ruined, so f**k it, let me just get out of the f**king car.
"I don't wanna now reverse and then everyone see me get in the car. That wasn't the point. The point was to show up in the f**king [police] car.
"This is f**king lame. Stop f**king backing me the f**k up. This s**t looks lame. Are you kidding? Let's just get out. F**k it."
She is then seen getting even more angry when an assistant opens the car door to listen to her, revealing the star to waiting fans.
"Are you f**king kidding... everyone knows I'm here," she shouts - before deciding to jump out and perform her trademark "twerking" dance on the red carpet.
She is later shown explaining her outburst.
"I do get so overwhelmed when I'm going to perform because everything has to be perfect," she says.
"I want every time you see me to be amazing. Everything has to be so huge, everything has to be a moment. If I'm going to do it, it has to be done the biggest and the best.
"I can easily let little things that don't matter that much shut me down completely. If one little detail's off, it makes me hate it all."
The show will air at 8pm this evening on MTV.
Miley has also been discussing her drugs of choice recently.
