At the tender age of 16, Miley Cyrus already has a hit TV show, a number 1 movie and three number 1 albums.
With that much experience under her belt Miley has penned a new memoir, Miley: Miles to Go that hit stores yesterday.
In the beginning pages, Miley describes her youth as “friendless, lonely and miserable.” Guess fame doesn't always buy you friendship. Here are some excerpts from her autobiography:
On ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas:
[When I first met him,] it felt like the whole world stopped. Nothing else mattered. [The day we broke up was] the hardest day ever. Deep down I know we weren’t being our best selves. And that was what I wanted — and thought I deserved – in a relationship.
On the haters during her pre-teen Tennessee school days:
“The girls took it beyond normal bullying. These were big, tough girls [known as] the Anti-Miley Club. I was scrawny and short. They were fully capable of doing me bodily harm… [They locked me in the girl’s restroom during class.] They shoved me in. I was trapped. I banged on the door until my fists hurt. Nobody came. I spent what felt like an hour in there, waiting for someone to rescue me, wondering how my life had gotten so messed up.”
On being challenged to a fight:
“It seemed like Operation Make Miley Miserable was escalating to a new level. More like Operation Take Miley Down. Three girls strutted up and stood towering over me. My stomach churned. I clutched my grilled cheese sandwich like it was the hand of my best friend. It pretty much was my best friend those days. I was done for… They started cussing me and telling me to get up. I sat there, frozen. I didn’t know what to do. Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore. I wasn’t chicken. What could they do to me? I was surrounded by people. I stood up, still a foot shorter then they were, and said, “What’s your problem? What did I ever do to you?’”
On writing the hit song “7 Things I Hate About You” for Nick:
“[I wrote it to] punish him, to get him back for hurting me [but the song is] about forgiving, not forgetting. It’s hard to imagine that our love is a story with an end. But you know, at least I’m getting some really good songs out of it.”
