Miley Cyrus: tween role model or bong-smoking wild child? The media’s been making the former Hannah Montana hottie out to be one or the other, but ask the Disney darling herself, and she knows exactly which she is: neither.
In the new issue of Prestige magazine, Miley poses for an all-grown-up photoshoot and comes clean about her public (and private) image. In addition to preferring living in Nashville to her professional life in L.A. (““Everyone [in LA] is so busy and everyone is trying to be better than the other person, and everyone has got so much going on. Nashville life is just so laid back and people enjoy every second of life that they have,” she says), Miley shares her thoughts on image:
“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. I’m not some crazy lady who’s gone off the deep end, because I definitely haven’t. I just always try to be real. Every 18-year-old explores sexuality and experiments and tries things. For me there’s no reason to change that.”
