Miley Cyrus Is A Totally Mature Artist, You Guys

In case your radar somehow missed her barely covered squirrel pelt yesterday, Miley Cyrus is on the cover of V Magazine’s Summer 2013 issue. Her interview, alongside Pharrell Williams who’s producing her new record, is about as navel-gazing as it gets as long as something like gauging one’s emotional development based on fashion and Twitter replies counts as such. I pulled some quotes until my eyes rolled so hard I puked into a Birkin bag because “I get it.”

On that thing I said about Twitter because, no really, that wasn’t an exaggeration at all:
MC It’s actually funny. He wrote something about how ‘Miley should kill her barber for what he did to her.’ And I was like, “Nothing can match what God already did to your face. By the way, I love your music. Smiley face.”

PW The balls! The ovaries! The sophistication to end it with, “But I love your music. Smiley face”? I was telling people, “Told y’all. She’s different.”

On calling Pharrell after the mold-shattering decision to cut her hair exactly like Pink did years ago:
Maybe two weeks later, he was the first person I called as soon as I pulled my bun up and [hairstylist Chris McMillan] went like this [makes snipping motion]. He was the only person I wanted to call, because I wanted him to know that I’m not fucking around with what I’m saying. I’m going to change, I’m going to be different, I’m going to do what I want to do. I chopped my hair and bought a pair of Docs and never looked back.

Even more about Twitter and how gaining followers is now equivalent to personal growth:
PW This is a 20-year-old. Do you hear all of this awareness? I kept saying to her, “Your view of yourself, your view of the world, is so accurate. Start to embrace it now so you can be great when you’re in your 30s. Right now you’re really, really good, and you’re super-advanced, but don’t be one of those girls who had everything you needed at a young age but because you were distracted by all of the peripheral bullshit you burn out at 25 or 30 or whatever. Embrace this power of yours.” It’s been a year, and I’ve seen a complete difference. When I first met her, she had 5.6 or 5.7 million Twitter followers. You look now and she’s at 11.3 or 11.4.

On how a Moschino logo belt defines her as a person and also represents the change in culture at large:
MC That’s what’s crazy. I felt like I always got it. I would always secretly keep my shit for around the house. Now I’m like, Fuck it. It’s not about the girly-girl shit anymore, the pop shit. Times are changing, music is changing, fashion is changing. It’s all changing. 

Look, I’m aware that it’s a fashion mag, so they’re going to talk about clothes, but the rest of this horseshit is exactly the kind of zero substance personality defining of what passes for musicians now. Isn’t it funny how obsession with physicality and social media get associated with signs of insanity when there’s nobody encouraging it so they can profit from album sales? Wait, did I just backhandedly defend Amanda Bynes? dives into traffic
