Miley Cyrus: I'm a little screwed up in the mind

Teen girls - already misunderstood by plenty of adults - are just as baffling to 17-year-old pop culture mega-star Miley Cyrus.

"I am screwed up in the mind a little bit because I’m not like other 16- or 17-year-old girls," Cyrus said in a recent interview in Parade. "I have no perspective of who exactly my fans are, to tell you the truth. Teenage girls in general are hard for me. I’m not a girl’s girl."

And despite the fact that she got her start in TV, Cyrus isn't a fan of parking in front of the tube - except for RuPaul's "Drag Race," which she can't get enough of. "I love me some RuPaul. I love RuPaul’s motto. It goes something like, ‘A real lady is never bitchy, a real lady is sassy,' " Cyrus said.

The actress isn't hiding the fact that she's trying to move away from the tween beat in order to get a more adult audience. She just may have the opportunity to do so with the adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' "The Last Song." But even if she doesn't, Cyrus has already reaped one benefit from the romantic drama about a rebellious Southern teen: "Last Song" co-star Liam Hemsworth is the new love of Cyrus's life.

"[Liam has] become my best friend in the whole wide world," Cyrus gushed to Parade. "I'm in love. 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 in my own way. He had no preconceived notion of who I was supposed to be."

And it seems that no matter how adult Cyrus gets, she still isn't planning on following in her father's footsteps and going country. It scares her, the actress and singer told Parade.

"It feels contrived on so many levels," she said. "Unless you’re wearing a cowboy hat and cowboy boots and singing and whining about your girlfriend or boyfriend leaving you it’s not going to sell. I think that’s why my dad finally got out of it. You have to wear those cowboy boots and be sweet as pie. It makes me nervous, the politics of it all."

    Screwed up is not the word sweety.You are on the verge of a breakdown,I am not joking..Mark my word you need to take time out and readjust your priorities before everything comes crashing down. You have grown up way too fast and have not had the proper role models.Take a break and disappear for awhile.You will be glad you did.

    To those who repond with "she's only 17:"

    My daughter just turned 15 and not only can she sing and act circles around Miley, but she is a thousand times more intelligent, well spoken and respectful. She doesn't use "like" as every other word, and she is very focused on getting a good education because that is how she plans on getting ahead in life – not by nepotism or wh*ring herself out.

    Don't think for a minute that all teenage girls are trampy idiots like Miley!

    Whenever a woman says something like "I'm not a girl's girl" or "all my friends are male," you know what that means? She's a b*tch to other women and that's why she has no female friends. I can see this in Miley- she's the queen bee, the princess, the one who is supposed to get all the attention. Just like Megan Fox- she is always saying she related better to men than other women. Uh, yeah, that's because all the men want to have sex with you!

    To all of you Haters, yes those of you that think your oppinions should be worth the two cents read on!!! Miley Cyrus, is someone who has earned her living by her own talents, not daddy's or anyone else. She is growing up, and so what? She is getting put down just because she stood by a dance Pole while singing a song so what!!
    for the lady so upset with this and that her kids are not going too listen to Cyrus music or watch a show, guess what A-Hole, maybe your problem is not Miley, is your husband hitting the strip clubs, and the emmy's brought back memories. The other thing is that, in Society there will always be some A-Hole Hating on someone else for no reason. Do you think? Ms. Cyrus should give a Hoot at what scums think. She has earned her living, and surely none of you two cents goupies have raised her in any way or shape or form, and if you say yes because, your have bought her cd's and followed her career, then she must have been doing something you liked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, she was not on a stripper pole – she was standing on a moving cart and used the pole to hold herself up. Way to blow this way out of proportion!

    I get SOO sick of hearing about Miley Cyrus (AND her Daddy.)

    She's a kid for God's sake. And (read this Miley:) she needs to STAY a kid and ACT like a kid, not some "young adult." Every time she tries to act (or dress) older than her years, she becomes tabloid fodder.

    Disney is doing their child stars a horrible disservice anymore. They're throwing them out into the big bad world WAYYYY too early and, from all appearances, making them fend for themselves.

    Walt would be so very disappointed, wouldn't he?

    I think some of these comments are a bit harsh. She is a seventeen year old girl that does not have the maturity to be anything but. However, she is doing a job that most adults also struggle to succeed and remain level headed about. If you are seventeen, no matter who you are, you need to act seventeen. The best thing Miley could do is remember and respect who her fans are and that they are the ones have made her rich and famous.

    WTF??!!? liplocking? well i'm only 18 and i'm thinking of what i can do to make it easier on my life. she's complaining because she wants an "older" audience. I'm currently locked up in TYC (Texas Youth Commision, like a prison for teens.) I am supposed to get out in like 3 months and am actually scared because i don't know where to start. I wish I could only have to worry about who my next audience is instead i worry about when is my next job or meal going to be..

    Most of you are saying this and that about her but you know that you wwent through the same thing.. miley don't think i'm standing up for you... butyou have to look at life period... IT'S HARD!! There is always going to be someone to make your life hard and half of these people are going with the Post Hoc Fallacy (that is college level). why don't YOU grow up and remember yourself at that age? you can't can you? I-M-M-A-T-U-R-I-T-Y. Always remember that when you could be doing bad there is always someone somewhere else going through something even worse...

    Miley shouldn't be quite so disrespectful towards country music. It is why she is where she is today-because of her dad's country music success & connections. But her dad was a total tool of the industry, so I can't really fault her for her country music views. Actually, Miley sings country very well, but that industry chews up the females & then spits them out.. She is an over worked & tired teenager. Hey, Miley, take a break & go to college. You've worked enough.

    Miley should stop giving interviews everytime she does she makes herself look more foolish than the last time. For all of you posters who think she is so talented – have you heard her sing live? Her pitch is way off every time she has to sing live – she is so produced in the studio to make her sound good.

    Of course Miley isn't like other teenage girls, she grew up in the spotlight and that takes it's toll.
    Pop music and mainstream country are both contrived. She should go the alt-country route musically – that's where the real talent today is.
    I hope the best for her, and hope she doesn't become another Brit.

    It seems to me that every teenager sees themselves as different from other teenagers. Be it thinking "I'm more mature then others my age" or "I'm interested in different kinds of things then others my age".

    I don't think you can be a teenager without exerting the fact that you're different from everyone else. We are all, after all, different people and individuals. And I think all teenagers reach a point where they realize that, at least for themselves.

    I thought I had wasted two minutes of my life reading this article until I read through all these comments, which were much more interesting than anything Hannah Montana had to say. The exploitation of children by Disney, Fox, Nick and even their own parents has to be exposed. It turns children into what we see here. Individuals with a total lack of character. And when our own children try and emulate what they see from these "role models" it harms the future of our country.

    "Bitter much?? My god I haven't read such petty jealous rants since my oldest daughter got an ice cream and the youngest missed out...
    She's 17 years old. "

    My thoughts exactly, I hope all these hatefull people dont have children of their own, How awfull. Or is it only little kids posting on this?

    She is just reacting to the environment she has been placed in. (and I can imagine people wanting to retort that she put herself there) So ..say it all you want, put your ignorance out there for all to see. Wait, most of you have allready done that.

    And when your 17 you do want to feel like your different, not like the other girls. Its all a part of growing up. Something aparently alot of you have forgotten to do. Picking on a kid? for being a kid? Please..

The chords are country, the twang is country. I saw them in concert a couple of years ago in Atlanta and I was excited because i remembered them from my teen years. I just didn't realize they were country back then. Bret came out with a cowboy hat that had a rebel flag on it – yeeee hawww!

    I'm not hating, I think your success is wonderful. But to get where you want to go you have to remember where you came from.

I am 33, I dont listen to her but I have heard her. She is not horrible but her personality needs some shaping. As far as role model, I think she will agree with you she isn't. Parents need to be there kids role model not a teenie booper. And Miley, sorry, your father was pushed out of Country Music, he didn't stop it himself. He was the "one hit wonder". Miley, you can act like an adult you have to be an adult. The only way to get there is through life experiance.

    White Trash....these boards are for OPINIONS not name calling. In MY OPINION Miley has little to no talent, when she is on TV or the radio I can't turn it off fast enough to get away from her manly voice. I find her relationship with her father creepy..much more then just a doting father.
    Also White Trash...how do you KNOW how people on this board are raising their children...why don't you stay on point or stay off the boards..

    I try not to read the responses to articles on line. I find it depressing just how mean spirited, bullyish, dirty-minded and flat out uneducated people can be. This is definately why the world is the way it is.

    We as a society have forgotten how to educate our children, make them kindhearted and how to give back to the world.

    These blogs are the world at their worst.

    She's a nice girl, who, I'm sure, will make mistakes in her life... just as every person looking down their nose at her in these posts.

    Grow up, get off your computers and go out and do something useful with your lives.

    And with that... I'm off to do something definately more useful with mine.

    Did any of you actually see the performance with the so-called stripper pole? I did not find it apalling at all. She's what, 17 years old? Teenage girls try on personalities like they try on clothes. Give her some room to explore who she is and wants to be. She'll make mistakes (in the eyes of the public and herself), but at the end of the day, if she's happy with who she is, more power to her.

    Very interesting. I think she is a little out of touch with country music. I am not a big country music fan. However country music is not what it use to be. It is the new version of pop music. I do not see many bands wear the cowboy hat and boots. Take Lady Antabellham (SP) They are so not into the cowboy hats and boots. I could name a list. Like Big and Rich and so on. True is, is s he wants to sing pop she has now w here else to turn now. Thats how it seems to be.

  77. You sad, sad people

    Geesh...you people are seriously harsh. Do you remember what it was like being 17? She seems to have a pretty good head on her shoulders, she's grounded and she realizes that she doesn't know everything...unlike you freaky people. It's got to be heard growing up in the spotlight and you guys don't make it any easier.

    You do sound like 12-year olds talking trash about someone you don't even know...sounds like jealousy to me. All the trash talk really makes kids sound stupid because you can tell when it has no basis in fact and let me tell you...you sound just like them.

    Most of those hollywood train wrecks you talk about were caused by people like you...could you handle constant criticism day in and day out from people who don't know you? It doesn't help that when you become a start people will give you anything and everything whether you ask for it or what it. People lie to you constantly, push you into things you aren't ready for and basically have your worst interests in mind.

    The simple fact that she has the intelligence and savvy to tell parents to stop holding her up as a role model is a good sign. She knows that she's only 17 and that she's still trying to figure it all out. There are a lot of people out there who are older than she is who haven't figured it out either, but are all willing to tell everyone how they've got it right and you've got it wrong...and how someone they don't even know is a slut or worse. And apparently, a good number of them are posting here!

I watched an interview with her and Liam (separately) and kudos to the young man, who can carry on an adult conversation without sounding like he's 12. Pleeeeease – someone teach her how to talk and carry on a conversation.

    I've seen a lot of Hannah Montana thanks to my 6 year old, and truthfully there's nothing wrong with her show. It's just a kids show. If you don't like it act your age and go watch some adult programing, instead of bashing someone cause they're only 16 and they already have a better job than you. I think that as long as she doesn't go the promiscuous route then her transition to an adult actor should go just fine. Anyone who thinks I'm wrong is really underestimating her HM fan base.

    Her comments about country music made me seriously laugh out loud.

    Cowboy boots and sweet as pie? Has she heard of Miranda Lambert?

    Jesus. Ever article I read about Miley just makes me respect her less and less. I try and give people the benefit of the doubt but with her it's difficult. I mean I understand that magazines and all that will print what they want and sometimes take things out of context, but she puts herself up for it with the things she says.

    She thinks she's so 'adult' and so much more mature than kids her age, but they way she acts (at least in the public eye) doesn't portray that.

    She's only famous because her dad was famous. If no one knew who he was, no one would know who she was. At this point in time, I feel like she can't act, and she can't sing. I really don't see what people like about her. I'm so glad I was old enough to NOT get dragged into the new era of Disney stars.

    Her comments about how she is oh-so-much more mature than other 17 year olds reeks of narcissism, and her insults about country music shows her ignorance and ungratefulness.
    Did she forget that if not for country music, her father would be a nobody? Or that without the ever-loyal tween fan base which she claims to be better than, she would be nothing?
    It just might be time to grow up.

Because of her background, being the famous daughter of a famous parent and growing up in the spotlight she cannot be expected to think like your average teenager. She is a talented – and popular – artist who's doing just fine, and heading towards a promising future. Well done Miley!

    I wonder if this kid has ever even seen a country music concert or listened to a song. The entire business has basically turned into what her daddy tried to be. He was actually a turning point. For the better? Who knows. Unfortunately, he decided to bail early then pimp out his kid. Not that he was going to win entertainer of the decade or anything when he got out, but riding the coat tails of your teenage daughter is pretty pathetic. Don't worry, Miley. Some day you'll spend all of your fortune (unless your parents run through it first) and then you can sell the pictures of your illegitimate lust child to some rag. Keep up the good work.

    Lots of teen girls are confused. That is perfectly normal. But Cyrus has the fame to deal with so that makes it a thousand times harder to deal with puberty, hormones and the changes you go through in your teen years.

    Having parents who set boundaries, don't treat you like a pampered princess, have you do chores at home and expect you to behave like a regular teen is the biggest blessing and encouragement to famous teens. Unfortunately, Miley Cyrus did not have this. Her parents blew it big time and she is on the road so widely traveled by others like Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, Hillary Duff and now Dakota Fanning. They all had stupid parents too.

    Hopefully, Miss Cyrus will look at the lives of the above mentioned women and learn from their mistakes.

    ok yeah, she's a teenager....teens say these type things and all think they're more mature. Little kids say "when I was young"..... Teens ALL bite the hand that feeds them -money usually makes no difference – ever heard of teenage rebellion?
    To all u (I guess?) wholesome Christian/ Country fans, righteous parents, parentally brainwashed kids or whoever u r posting all theses nasty personal attacks toward her & her family – grow up! I can see little difference between u and the lady that went to jail for her hateful/hurtful internet attacks on a teen girl that commited suicide. Think first. Stop spewing hate and passing it on to your kids.
    If these comments reflect your parenting skills....well, maybe u should start at home rather than judge Billy Ray. He's got a great relationship with his kid....how 'bout you?
    As someone who worked in the music biz in Nashville, Miley at 17 has a more accurate grasp of the marketing reality of Country than most of u commenting. Sure u like your weak voiced/pro tools Taylor Swift (whose parents entered her in talent shows & yodeling at fairs since she was little – and was outsung by Miley in awards show duet), your Sugarland, w/guitar player Bush having spent years pIaying in rock duo Hyra/Bush (when I met him) without making waves before donning a cowboy hat & an attractive female singer, Hootie & Blowfish frontman who ended up in a chicken suit in a commercial after his "one hit" $ ran out now wears a cowboy hat and wins best "new" Country artist, Lady A, a group who "just happens" to have an attractive female singer & cute boys – oh no, nothing contrived here. Then there's the biggest example of the ultra successful & talented Dixie Chicks who make one remark and are retaliated against with record burning, radio bans, death threats etc – nope "no sweet as pie" lesson to be learned here. Kd lang won Country album of the year Grammy and stated she's a vegetarian and all hell broke lose w/farmers & cow industry – that was her last Country foray (even before stating she's a lesbian- oh no!). Not enough room for the many examples.
    I can also tell u that Billy Ray had more than one hit & album (u missed it), has had a tv show, successful tours, a few movies and managed to support his family on that "wonder" hit...which is better than most artists & more talented artists can manage. In fact, his 2nd & 3rd albums were better – but not the one that "u" the public bought....nope that has nothing to do with line dance re-mix marketing does it?

    You say, "She's just a kid." Exactly. Which is why she should act like a kid instead of trying to play the role of a 22 year-old slut.

    What is miley talking about? Country music is very up and coming. I don't think if it wasn't for Gloriana, Lady A, Carrie Underwood,Tswift, keith urban etc, toping the charts and reaching the masses; more people wouldn't know the different forms the genre comes in. She may not feel it is the right fit for her but it helped her dad pay for a house, cars, food, and the people he paid to get his daughter into disney's door!
    As for her proclaiming she "isn't like most 16-17 year old girls" well first off she is sterotyping all teenage girls wear makeup, spending time on their hair, and dating! Does anyone see a hypocrite?! She does all of those things.

    so the title caught my eye but ok..seriously ppl need to stop using others as role models for their kids..i control what my children watch but i dont expect them to be their complete example..although i do encourage them to see positive things that will not promote things I disagree with or go against what I am trying to teach..she is a teenager and still has to grow up..give the girl a break too..although im not into her things, come on ppl! and the hole "pole incident" it was not a raunchy thing..and another thing a stripper pole like the ones u see in the videos, where girls actually do dance all raunchy..real stripper poles are actually longer..if u notice, the pole that ppl keep criticizing her for is technically not that..it was nearly her height ..i think it was there for her to hold on to..and she as a performer, incorporated it......a stripper pole has to be longer bc they obviously get on it and twirl around and lift and what not....for fun, I took classes with friends, and the pole she had would not be "good enough" so ppl i do not think it was the raunchy intention that ppl are saying..it is the nasty minds of ppl...get over it..move on..she is a teenager..and britney..ok the girl make her mistakes but u know what? I saw plenty of teenage girls that were extremely promiscuous some dressed provocative and some did not..some got pregnant really young and some didnt..I was not promiscuous and i had my first child at 18..thankfully, my first love and I actually are still together and very much in love and married when we were ready and he is a few yrs older than me...britney got married and THEN had her children too..and just because she likes certain styles does not make her a slut..b careful what u say..u have no idea what ur children will become...i remember being pregnant (and mind u, only being with just one man) this person talking dirt about me bc I guess I was young and pregnant so it was slutty..well some years went by ...the niece she raised..became sexually active earlier in age than I did..with multiple partners...and gave her some heartache..at least i was monogamous and thankfully got my education, and I have been with one man..in the end, our kids pay for our mouths when we dont keep it shut and our actions..

    I agree with Tony (comment today at 2:01). How people can come down on someone 17 with such vitriol (hatefulness) is astonishing to me. She's 17, not 40 (and some 40 year olds are not well-rounded adults, either: age has nothing to do with maturity). She's human, much like everyone else posting here.
    If I were writing some of these messages, I'd ask myself how it's possible to be so flat-out hateful towards someone you've never met, only know by sound bites (which online sources use to get you to look at the article at all) and really haven't been hurt by her in any personal way.

    Unfortunately, Miley will no doubt be the next Britney. The arrogance, inward-thinking, short-sightedness, and self-absorbed behaviors have all been played out within these past 2 years. So the pattern will undoubtedly take course for this new Britney.

    3. She was caught eating buggers that were not her own.
    4. When she was born, she WAS the afterbirth.
    5. She really is in love with L. L.
    6. I can't figure out if she likes a big 'ole good one or a good 'ole one.
    7. When giving head she has to wrap caution tape around her own head. She would hate for someone to get caught on one of her jags (teethe that is).

    I am shocked and dismayed by the number of bitter, harsh and resentful people responding to this article. First off, she's a 17 year old teenager who is stating her opinion and trying to forecast where she wants her career to go. How many 17 year old kids do you know that already have a career path? Not many, I'm guessing. The vast majority of teens have a part-time job at the mall, a fast food joint, or are living off mom and dad's credit cards. You would think this girl personally affected your life... she's a kid on the verge of becoming an adult. She hasn't experienced life the way "normal" teens in America experience life. She's answering questions based on her own personal life experiences. Obviously you've woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Why don't you go back to bed and try again.. clearly you're pissed off and probably have some issues that you need to deal with personally. :)

    It bothers me when celebrities seem to cast aspersions about the very set of people who supported them and made them famous and wealthy. For example, Miley is a bit patronizing when she says she doesn't understand 16-17-year-old girls, and maybe somewhat demeaning when she says she's scared to follow her father into country music because it's contrived unless you're wearing cowboy boots. The people she doesn't understand and the genre of music she's scared of are the very people and things that've propelled her to stardom. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

    I'm not a big country music fan, but her comments about the genre sounds make it seem like she is a bitter reject.

    Taylor Swift is perhaps the perfect example of what country music is capable of and where it is headed, and she is none of those things that Miley described. Ironically, Taylor Swift's career is on the rise while Miley will be lucky to have any kind of success in the not-too distant future. And it's not just age: Taylor is a few years older than Miley.

FYI...they know you in Australila too but it is a good pick up line "What, are you famous or something? Miley Cyrus? Hannah Montana? Never heard of them. But hey, I think I love you , want to be my girlfriend?" Ask around, it has been used several times on those of you that are gullible enough to fall for it.

    Okay, I grew up listening to and watching Miley Cyrus. I really looked up to her and that was probably one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made. I've learned so much from GOOD people in my life. I couldn't go anywhere if I was still depending on an international superstar brat.

    So, as far as being 'screwed up,' we've known for a while. She's had it coming since her parents forced her into it. And she doesn't exactly have the best family; a bleach-blond slutty mother, a one-hit wonder dad, a one-hit wonder brother ( who is gross, seeing how many tatoos he has) and a non-famous rest of the family. Her little sister was in Ponyo, but to be honest, she'll probably follow in her sister's footsteps.

    And, really, this is all very sad. Miley doesn't have too much talent, and as far as acting goes, I read The Last Song, and I love Nicholas Sparks... I'm not sure about her in the movie.

    It's also really unfair that she does so little, and she gets everything she wants... Hot guys, hot cars, the MOST expensive clothes, jewelry, and it's just terrible. She might be charitable, but she doesn't work hard for what she has.

    Talk about ungrateful. If it weren't for the young fans and tweens, the girl would not have much of a career. With an attitude like that she won't have to worry about her fan base because there won't be one. The girls who supported her as Hannah are growing up too! Maybe she should try to relate to kids her own age instead of trying to prove she has outgrown everyone.

At least she is honest enough to admit she is human and is " a little screwed up", hell, we all are in some way or another. I think she just tring to say she thinks differently than most teens, which from what I've seen latley is probably a good thing. And for those who are making negative comments about Billy Ray are probably the same ones that just used to have mullets and wear Achy Breaky t-shirts doing the line dance when it was popular.

    Seriously I think she was slamming Swifty when she said that "unless you are singing and whining about your girlfriend or boyfriend leaving you it’s not going to sell." She has a point and if Taylor swift would write a song different that one about having tear drops on her guitar, or sitting on the bleachers, it may be different. Miley is a true vocal tallent, much along the lines Tanya Tucker was years ago. Taylor can't sing...that's the bottom line, If there weren't computer's tuning her voice, you wouldn't be able to listen.. Trust me.. She is the pitchiest girl out there, and she needs a new idea for a song! At least Miley isn't singing about being drunk and needing someone...So before you go there about BRC being a one hit wonder maybe you should figure out the definition of a one hit wonder.. And I don't belive that the Cyrus' "Pimped" her out.. PLEASE... And if you ever met Mr. Cyrus you would know he is one of the nicest men out there.

    If it wasn't for the supporting actors on "Doc", the show wouldn't still be on cable. And, do you hear his name when "Blindsided" is mentioned? I'm sorry, but Billy Ray is one of the stiffist actors in the industry. Miley's performance in Hannah Montana, The Movie was just as stiff. I agree with SP85. At 17, she needs to be concerned with getting an education, not trading on her thin talent, and teeny-bopper fan base.

    she says she is screwed up "a little"............... uh, excuse me missy, you are screwed up ALOT !!!

    you dress and act like you are trying to be 25-30 ! you are a little girl. Act like it.
    Don't dress so sleazy!

    You got all dressed up for the Academy Awards, and stood like a round-shouldered kid! You are NOT a grown up. Don't try to look and act like one.

    Your parents shouldn't exploit you so much!!!!

    Well, it appears that Miss Cyrus is finally growing up. This is of course stating the obvious, afterall she can't remain a child star forever. Which brings her to a difficult stage in her life/career, the transition from child star to adult star.

    The past is literally strewn with the many people that failed in that regard. The recent passing of Mr. Haim, who lived a troubled life after the opportunities dried up, is just one such example.

    Few child actors have had success in making the transition. Once cute and cuddly is gone the audience is no longer interested. One of the biggest obsticals to the transition is that so many child stars become typecast, we can see them in only one way or role. Miss Cyrus is fortunate in the regard that she can continue acting or pursue a singing career. She has some options.

    Ron Howard, who we all knew as Opie and then as Richie Cunningham made the best decision by trading positions from in FRONT of the camera to BEHIND the camera. He explored another dimension of the entertainment industry and has thus remained active and productive.

    Popularity and fame is fleeting – it doesn't hang around for long, enjoy it while you can, BUT plan for the future when it won't be around!

    This poor kid is so delusional...and that is because of her parents. Her voice is not good, she is not very attractive and uses the "I'm not like other teenage girls" thing as an excuse for her raunchy behavior. Miley is an out of control kid, who thinks she is an adult. She will out-do Britney and fairly quickly too. No adult would ever buy or listen to her music intentionally. I think perhaps Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, etc. would have an opinion on Miley's version of country music? Her Dad didn't make it because he has no talent and one ridiculous song to his credit that he didn't even write !

    Running your mouth with all the nonsense you are spewing is not going to increase your adult fan-base. Most adults recognize the silly, teenage comments you make for just that. Your dad was cute, but that's about it. Grow up.

    Ok So Miley says " I’m not like other 16- or 17-year-old girls " then she says " Liam has become my best friend in the whole wide world ". In the whole wide world??? Thats the most childish thing I ever heard but shes not like other teen girls. Please, she makes me sick! Go AWAY!

    What is wrong with all of you people? She is a kid, why exactly do you have to be so hurtful? does it make you feel better about yourselves? Seriously, her dad may have been a one hit wonder but at least he had that, millions of hopefuls don't even have that. Lay off the poor girl.

    She says Nashville is derived and is correct in that statement, but she needs to realize that Disney products, Hannah Montana being an example, are just as derived and manufactured. Not to mention Disney is just a merchandised based religion sold to children through television programming anyway.

    Lot of bitterness and ill will here. She's 17. Her opinion is what was asked of her. I wish her well. I wish I was 17 again, but only if I was a little smarter than I was then.

    I can't tell if this young lady is really bright, or really dense. I read her comment that she and the new beau are "deeper than most people their ages", and that is why their love is so string. I highly doubt that at 17, but who am I to determine just how precocious Ms. Cyrus is? She speaks well, like she has some semblance of what is going on around her, and I applaud her for it, but no matter what, she is still 17 with a whole lifetime ahead of her.

    Miley's just so ahead of her time, it's incredible. I mean, she's so much deeper than most the kids her age. When a look at her, I just see a good person so in touch with the pulse of the universe. And she never hesitates to bite the hand that feeds her... be it her dad's country fans... or her own. She just has so much respect. Too much, in my humble opinion. She should be more honest and just say how she really feels about the people who brought her up and paid for all the things they have. But alas, she's just too kind for that sort of thing.

    She's just too deep.

    She'll never make it, she hasn't got the voice or the looks. She also is showing her lack of maturity when speaking about country music. Contrived more then some pop songs, really? Look at the Dixie Chicks, Sugarland, Lady Antebellum, etc., etc. With her attitude she'll fade as fast as her Dad did. As an actress who knows, but again don't think she has what it takes.

    She seriously feels that way about country music? If it weren't for her father's career in country, she probably wouldn't be where she is today. Not to mention he was promoting his own country music on a radio station locally just a few months ago, so I don't think he's really gotten out of it. Sounds she's getting too big for her celebrity britches.

    She's so happy, but ignorance is bliss, isn't it? Just be quiet, little girl, your opinions aren't that important.

    Oh, and by the way, your daddy didn't make it in country music not because of politics, it's because he has no talent.

    Ok she has also been quoted as saying her music isn't Pop. So, what is it? I don't think that Country is all necessarily cowboy hats and boots. Look at Lady A and Taylor Swift. I think that Billy Ray will always be known for Achy Breaky Heart and that may have been his downfall.

    You know this is the one who gets on a stripper pole in front of children and claims she would do it again. What a role model!!! If she wants to be on a stripper pole go perform to adults. Make a stipper movie but stay away from the other kids. She also said adults need to remember when they were kids. Well that is why we disapprove now. Yeah she is a Britney in the making. Her shows will no longer play in my home nor will her music. She is self obsorbed and yeah screwed up.

    Unless you’re wearing a cowboy hat and cowboy boots and singing and whining about your girlfriend or boyfriend leaving you it’s not going to sell. I think that’s why my dad finally got out of it.

    Well, hopefully she can resist sliding into being just another "pop tart" and going the ridiculous Lolita slut route paved so well by Brittany and others.

    Although, seeing her Party in the USA video, I don't doubt that's what "get a more adult audience" will end up meaning.
