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. And we culled it down to the good snippets. You’re welcome…
How she thinks back on the 2013 VMAS: “Everything I’ve ever done has been true to me at that minute. Even down to my TV show [“Hannah Montana”] — 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, wasn’t just a teddy bear. My dad always explained it to me that you step into your happiness. That’s kind of like what I was doing. When I broke down the bear belly, I was really breaking out — my show ended, and then I didn’t really work for two years. That’s when I did my most self-exploration. [The performance] was kind of going into this way of saying, “I’m just going to do what will make me happy.” At that moment, that’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 I’m coming out of one of her pieces. What I’m trying to do is create my Instagram — which people love to think is so freaky — in real life. It’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. It’s not very polite. I think there’s a way you speak to people with openness and love. You don’t have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn’t even on what you wanted it to be about. Now you’ve just given E! News “Catfight! Taylor and Nicki Go at It. I know you can make it seem like, Oh I just don’t understand because I’m a white pop star. I know the statistics. I know what’s going on in the world. But to be honest, I don’t think MTV did that on purpose.”
