If you’re buying a magazine this week, chances are, Miley Cyrus is in it. Okay, so she’s got like, two magazines she’s in, but that’s more than I’ve got, and therefore, it is a lot.
Cyrus graces the cover of Prestige magazine, looking nearly unrecognizable. On the cover, Miley’s gone from cute Disney kid to grownup in Gucci. She was also interviewed by legendary rocker Joan Jett for V magazine. Prestige asked Cyrus if she considers herself a California girl, and she said:
“I’m not a big fan of LA, I’ve got to be honest. I like being able to work here, but any chance to go back home [to Tennessee], I love it. People really take life for granted in California. It makes me sad sometimes.”
It doesn’t help that, in L.A., you can’t leave your house without encountering at least one crazy person. Whether it’s a fat, topless woman screaming in the street or a dude cussing you out at the top of his lungs because you looked at his dog…you can always spot a native Los Angeleno because they walk past these people without batting an eye.
“I have to give myself that reality check every once in a while and go back home,” Cyrus said.
When it comes to her Hannah Montana days, Cyrus says it’s not something she misses.
“I miss the family vibe, but I don’t miss the routine at all. I was so bored doing the same thing every day. It’s a lot easier not being on a show, to live my life a little bit and do some of the others thing that I want to do, I don’t have to be back at a certain time.”
I feel like being a Disney star is to child actors what selling drugs is to inner city kids. You plan on getting in and getting out quickly, just to make some money off of it. Unfortunately, you usually end up sad, wasted and desperately trying to peddle your crap. But somehow, it looks like Miley is on her way to escaping that fate.
“Even my little sister, who’s 11, wants to go into acting. I just say, ‘Just wait, dude.’ Because the way you’re going to be when you’re my age and the way you are right now are so different. Don’t put yourself in a situation where people are going to think of you as only one thing.”
In V magazine, Cyrus told Jett:
“People see me as this perfect Disney star, and the moment I put out a record that says 'I'm not 11 years old anymore,' people look down on me. That's why I have always looked up [to] you. When you came out people were shocked that there was a chick that wanted to rock as hard as the guys."
