Yes, this dirty hippie is back in action, but this time she won’t be all latex-y and grinding up against Robin Thicke‘s gross ding dong. NO- it’ll be HER PARTY.
The New York Times caught up with Miley Cyrus and asked her all kinds of VMA-related stuff.Â And we culled it down to the good snippets. You’re welcome…
How she thinks back on the 2013 VMAS: “Everything Iâ€™ve ever done has been true to me at that minute. Even down to my TV show [â€œHannah Montanaâ€] â€” when I started I was 12 years old, and that was like a dream to me. So that was my truth at that moment. Me coming out of that teddy bear, to me, wasnâ€™t just a teddy bear. My dad always explained it to me that you step into your happiness. Thatâ€™s kind of like what I was doing. When I broke down the bear belly, I was really breaking out â€” my show ended, and then I didnâ€™t really work for two years. Thatâ€™s when I did my most self-exploration. [The performance] was kind of going into this way of saying, â€œIâ€™m just going to do what will make me happy.â€ At that moment, thatâ€™s what really made me happy.”
Will you have an opening monologue? “Seth Rogen and his team helped us write a lot. [The artist] Jen Stark is doing the introduction for me, so Iâ€™m coming out of one of her pieces. What Iâ€™m trying to do is create my Instagram â€” which people love to think is so freaky â€” in real life. Itâ€™s letting people into my world.”
On Nicki Minaj saying “a white girl who breaks a Vevo Record gets nominated: “What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. Itâ€™s not very polite. I think thereâ€™s a way you speak to people with openness and love. You donâ€™t have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isnâ€™t even on what you wanted it to be about. Now youâ€™ve just given E! News â€œCatfight! Taylor and Nicki Go at It. I know you can make it seem like, Oh I just donâ€™t understand because Iâ€™m a white pop star. I know the statistics. I know whatâ€™s going on in the world. But to be honest, I donâ€™t think MTV did that on purpose.”
