Miley Cyrus Talks About How Important The VMAs Were
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.27.2013



In an interview with The New York Times, Miley Cyrus spoke about how aware she was of the importance of her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. Here are highlights:

On being aware of the importance of the VMAs: "But I didn't know that I was going to be the only one that was really going to push it like that. It's actually really funny how many people could watch my performance, and they think it was, like, sexist and degrading to women, and somehow people found that it was racist, which I couldn't even wrap my mind around. Because I'm like: "How do I win? If I have white dancers, then I'm racist. If I have black girl dancers, then I'm racist." We know we're not racist, and I know I'm not putting down women. People got a rise out of me saying that I was a feminist, but I am. I'm telling women be whoever you want to be."

On if she watches what other pop stars are doing: "I watch everyone's music videos, to the point where I'm O.C.D., looking at every single thing they're wearing and what they're doing. Before, because I didn't have my own personal self yet, it was hard for me to watch that kind of stuff. I was so jealous of what everyone else got to do, because I didn't get to truly be myself yet. But now I realize how much they're not being themselves either. You don't have to be signed to Disney Channel to be put in a box, or to be rated PG. I'm with artists sometimes, and I'll take a picture of them or whatever. They make me delete it."

On trying to convince Ariana Grande to shed her good girl image: "I don't have a bunch of celeb friends, because I feel like some of them are a little scared of the association. This is terrible. I was backstage with [the rising pop star] Ariana Grande. I'm like, 'Walk out with me right now and get this picture, and this will be the best thing that happens to you, because just you associating with me makes you a little less sweet.' Exactly. She's trying. I see her wearing the shorter things. She comes in, and she goes, 'This made me feel like you.' And I'm like, 'That was like my sixth grade prom dress.' She's, I think, still on Nickelodeon. She has people that she has to kind of respect. Things came out that happened like, you know, bong videos when I was on Disney. But I never wanted to do that to Disney. When I was no longer employed by anyone, that's when I was like, 'O.K., I'm going to do my own thing.' But I waited until I felt like I had respectfully finished out what I was supposed to do, you know?"
