A star is someone who doesn’t have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power. Sex does sell, but you find a way that’s not just showing your tits. I don’t want to be a glorified model. They just walk on stage and it’s all about their clothes – or lack of clothes.
Miley Cyrus Quotes

Every week it's, 'Are they broken up? Because we don't see a photo of them.' I don't have time to go to Starbucks with my boyfriend every morning. I wish I did, but I don't.
I think it's all so sad and I don't want to add any fuel to that fire. It's really so sad to me. I was rooting for her comeback until [she] started attacking me. I just thought it was hilarious that she mentioned my name the moment I was the worldwide trending topic on Twitter. It's just funny the moment you're a trending topic how many people want your name to come out of their mouth, so somehow they can associate and maybe they can become a trending topic.
Without legalized same-sex marriage, most of the time you cannot share the same health benefits, you are not considered next of kin and you are not granted the same securities as a heterosexual couple. How is this different than having someone sit in the back of the bus because of their skin color? . . . This is America, the nation of dreams. We’re so proud of that. And yet certain people are excluded. It’s just not right.
When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘All LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me—they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love . . . Every American should be allowed the same rights and civil liberties.
People will say, ‘Oh, Liam is so close to Jennifer Lawrence.’ Well, yeah – they shot a movie together! He’s supposed to ignore her because she’s a chick? I could be standing next to a guy who is wearing a rainbow-colored shirt that says, ‘I’m gay,’ and people would still write, ‘Who is that guy with Miley?’ It’s all bullshit. Luckily, neither of us is super-jealous. We know each other and would never do anything to hurt each other.
Liam and I have a really good relationship. It took breaking up once or twice because I was young and immature and wanted to do things I hadn’t yet gotten to do. He was older, so it was like he’d already been through school. At some point you realize these people you’re hanging out with are your ‘party friends’; they’re not going to give a shit about you in 10 years. Then you remember who you really want around you.
Life is too short to not be with the person you want to be with. I don’t really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we’ve made each other. And we want to have a long engagement.
My favorite place to perform is London, because I have never seen more gay people in my whole life. When I go to London that’s what it is. I feel like they are so much more open, much more than here in the US where they’re feeling trapped, where it’s like, ‘Can I even say I believe in gay marriage? Can I say that my favorite fans are my gay fans? Am I allowed to say that, because half of America is still against it?’
The press seems to think that I’m trying to make this big turn and become a bad girl, and really I’m trying to be more connected with the Earth, more connected with myself. I’m not doing this for anyone else but me. My career is not my main priority, it’s not my life any more. I really just want to enjoy life and explore nature and become who I am to the fullest.
People have two very mixed opinions of me: I’m a great role model, or I’m completely inappropriate for anyone under 13 and I am controversial. I don’t know how I became this. There was this magazine article the other day, showing all the younger celebrities. It was like Girl Next Door or whatever, and I fell under the category of Good Girl Gone Bad. And I was like, “What the hell, man?” I stay in the house pretty much every day. I don’t go out. I’ve had the same boyfriend for two years.

I would do that pole dance a thousand times again, because it was right for the song and that performance. But, dude, if you think dancing on top of an ice-cream cart with a pole is bad, then go check what 90% of the high schoolers are really up to.
There has been so much controversy sometimes about what I’ve said or done because I believe there are no mistakes - God is the only one who can judge us. That’s the reason I deleted my Twitter account. I said on there that I believed in gay marriage because everyone should have the right to love each other, and I got such hate mail about [me] being a bad person.
The other day I felt a little bit in danger for the first time because there were too many photographers following me in too many cars. And I have to ask myself, ‘Why would any other 50-year-old man who was stalking a 17-year-old girl go to jail, but not these guys? I'm not as American as anyone else?’ I mean, they couldn't sit outside of a high school but they can sit outside my recording studio. It's creepy.
[Liam has] become my best friend in the whole wide world. I love him. He really respects me for who I am because coming from Australia, he really didn’t know me as the celebrity I am here. I got to tell him about myself on my own terms and my own way. He had no preconceived notion of who I was supposed to be.
People are always looking for you to do something that is non-Christian . . . If I wear something revealing, they go, ‘Well, that’s not Christian.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m going to go to hell because I’m wearing a pair of really short white shorts.’ Suddenly I’m a slut. That’s so old-school.

You don't show your personality by what you wear—it's about how you present yourself, by always having a smile.
I’ve learned how to respect myself and how to say no. I’ve learned who I can really trust. I have 200 or 300 friends, but I probably trust four. When I read something in the tabloids and it’s from an “insider,” I want to know who thinks they’re on the “inside.” Because I can count on one hand the people who really know me.
