OMG, Miley! The tongue, the twerking, the latex underwear, the naked video! Where on earth to begin? Miley Cyrus, the most Googled star in cyberspace, is sitting opposite me on a pale leather sofa, coltishly long-limbed in thigh-high black Louboutin boots, a wispy Black Watch tartan dress and a baby-blue fox-fur cape. Wide-eyed and clear-skinned, mouth a vermilion pout, the 20-year-old singer looks ravishing, even with the tattoo on her ear and the tiny gold gangsta pistol nestling among the chains around her neck.
When we hung out with Miley Cyrus for our new cover story, the 20-year-old superstar didn’t just get Rolling $tone tattooed on her feet and jump out of an airplane. She also said a bunch of smart, funny things! It turns out Miley’s mouth isn’t just the place her tongue hangs out between posing for photos. The interviews covered way more ground than could fit in the story, so we’ve gathered some of the best parts. Presenting, the Wisdom of Miley.
ON HER VMAS PERFORMANCE
I know what I’m doing. I know I’m shocking you. When I’m dressed in that teddy bear thing, I think that’s funny. I was saying yesterday, I had this obsession about this character that’s like an adult baby. Like if you see a baby do something like that it’s so warped and weird, but there’s something creepily hot about it. So when I’m in that teddy bear suit, I’m like a creepy, sexy baby. But I forget that it’s, like, people in Kansas watching the show. That people that sit their kid in front of the TV and are like, “Oh, an awards show! Let’s watch.”
I have added the cover and some photshoot pictures from Miley’s Fashion Magazine shoot. She looks beautiful! You can also read the part of article below.
Ten days after Miley Cyrus’s explosive performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards, FASHION magazine photographed the 20-year-old chart-topper at a private estate in the Hollywood Hills for the November issue. Features editor Elio Iannacci was on set to conduct an in-depth interview with the singer, who opened up on her recent, radical transformation, her critics, and the making of her soon-to-be-released album, Bangerz. Here is a sneak peek of our cover story, which hits newsstands nationwide on October 7, 2013.
FASHION Magazine November Cover Miley Cyrus
She knows what you think about her – and she totally doesn’t care!
In the backroom of a tattoo parlor on North La Brea Avenue in L.A., Miley Cyrus is about to get some new ink. “All right, face down,” says the tattoo artist, a bald guy named Mojo. Miley flips onto her stomach and sticks her ass in the air. On the bottom of her dirty feet, in ballpoint pen, are written the words ROLLING (right foot) and $TONE (left).
“People get tattoos of the most fucked-up shit,” Miley says. “Did you know Alec Baldwin has Hannah Montana’s initials tattooed on him? No, wait – Stephen Baldwin. He said he was my biggest fan, and I told him my biggest fans have tattoos. So he got hm tattooed on his shoulder.” She shakes her head. “People do fucked-up shit.”
For her first Rolling Stone cover story, Miley wanted to do something fun. “I thought about going to play laser tag,” she says. “But laser tag sucks. And we could have gone bowling, but what are we, 90?” Naturally, the next idea was getting a tattoo.
“All right, darlin’,” says Mojo. “You ready?”
Miley High Club – We love Miley Cyrus and Miley Cyrus loves gays – but then, what would you expect from Dolly Parton’s god-daughter? Here she talks tweeting, twerking and glory holes.
It’s been five years since Miley Cyrus’s breakthrough single See You Again and it’s classic line “Oh, she’s just being Miley”. In that time, precisely what “just being Miley” entails has changed beyond recognition. In her already classic video for current hit We Can’t Stop, the former Hannah Montana star is seen twerking, spanking, writhing in a bathtub, tonguing a female mannequin and generally behaving like a badass. Still nothing could have prepared us for Miley’s utterly sexually demented performance at the VMAs last month. Rubbing her backside around Robin Thicke’s beetlejuice clad groin – the one time children’s television star was later, variously, blamed for the downfall of Western society – and hailed as a feminist icon. Go figure. The song itself is just as provocative: on the bridge, is the 20-year-old singing ‘dancing with Miley’ or ‘dancing with Molly’ – a reference to a slang term for MDMA?
Miley Cyrus is wearing an oversize sweatshirt and nothing else, curled up in an enormous trailer parked outside Soundstage 24 at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. She’s just unpacked her “kit,” which is what the 20-year-old pop star calls the gym bag full of over-the-top, blingy, fabulous accessories that she brings everywhere. There are Chanel logo suspenders and belts, Versace Medusa necklaces and brooches, spiked stilettos, hats, and miles of shiny gold chains. “I never know when I’m going to be like, ‘Photo shoot!’ And need some weird stuff to whip out.” What if there’s a sudden swarm of paparazzi? Or worse: “What if I get to a photo shoot and the stylist just sucks? So I bring my own shit.” Cyrus, whose fourth album, Bangerz, is out this month, today is filming an MTV promotion—and, sure enough, when she’s dressed in a tight white crop top and tiny black shorts, she dips into her kit to layer on gold necklaces and a low-slung vintage Chanel chain belt.
In control of her sound and image, Miley is mixing hip-hop edge with country twang, and storming the Billboard Hot 100 with “We Can’t Stop”
This is an excerpt. For the complete story, buy this week’s issue of Billboard.
“This is the worst spot to stand.”
In the middle of a photo studio in Hollywood, Miley Cyrus faces a video crew there to capture the pop icon relaying spritely promos for an upcoming blitz of TV appearances on “Good Morning America” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” There’s a director on hand, but it’s clear who’s running the show.
“Look, I’m not fat or anorexic-I just know my angles,” Cyrus instructs the cameraman. She then goes over the scripts, which are a little too cutesy for her taste-the copy riffs on the title of her new single, “We Can’t Stop,” released just the day before. “I hate it when people make puns out of my song titles,” she says, before adding with a slight smile, “Should I do a Christian Bale and start freaking out?”She’s kidding, of course: Despite her strong opinions, Cyrus proves anything but a diva in person. She’s utterly professional, hits her marks (there’s never a need for more than two takes) and charms the crew with equal parts humor and chutzpah.
Having ditched the squeaky-clean image and long blonde hair of her Disney days, Miley Cyrus has spent the past few years acting out and growing up. As she reveals to Pharrell Williams, the producer behind her new hip-hop sound, she’s unapologetically taking control.
Dressed in a midriff-baring vintage tee and Topshop pants, Miley Cyrus is barefoot dancing to her new hip-hop-infused sound at a Burbank, California, recording studio. A few feet away, Pharrell Williams, the megacharming megaproducer who helped to orchestrate this clever, heartfelt sonic breakthrough, leans effortlessly against a console, trading lyrics with the smiley 20-year-old determined to revolutionize her career. They are listening to “#GetItRight,” the possible lead single off her impending, first post-Disney album, and a sure Top 40 diamond with a whistling hook and clever sweetness that partially obscures the frank sexual nature of its lyrics. A global phenomenon since her Hannah Montana days, the daughter of Billy Ray “Achy Breaky” Cyrus is widely recognized for kid-friendly hits and a corporate-approved persona. But after shedding her Disney veneer—genuinely, without the trappings of image strategy—Miley has revealed herself to be a far more compelling pop figure in the throes of a powerful transformation. The world is watching as her look, identity, and womanhood evolve, fixating on every life decision from the engagement to Hollywood heartthrob Liam Hemsworth to the defiant, much-ballyhooed cropped do which she attributes to the ongoing mentorship of Williams. Here the collaborators sit down to discuss everyhing from fashion to family to triumphant next-level greatness.
Miley Cyrus is fooling around in a grey onesie, pulling the animal head – a unicorn – over her face, blowing a kiss into her mobile phone camera, bouncing barefoot across the studio like a goofy kid.
Next, she’s another creature altogether,, slinky in a pink bejewelled Fausto Puglisi dress, cut out at the midriff and right up to here, a dirty rap track turned up loud as she shows off her mastery of the twerk – an extreme booty shake.
