Making her mark on MTV history was what she was after, not making people scratch their heads. But misunderstood Miley Cyrus is not only puzzled at the amount of speculation over her VMA twerking spectacle, she also wants the public to know that she’s actually a hard-working professional, and yeah, she knows she is screwed up.
According to the Huffington Post, Miley Cyrus got candid in a new interview with Sunday People, reportedly telling the U.K. paper that she’s had a “messed up” life: “….despite her inappropriate on stage antics, Cyrus admits she’s a workaholic and is all about the music — which, in her eyes, isn’t always a good thing.”
“I have so many f**king issues,” she allegedly told Sunday People. “I am so f**ked up -– everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up.”
“I don’t have a normal life,” Cyrus adds. “I take a hiatus every now and again, but I’m not good at that.”
Miley also admits that she rarely sleeps, but says that it’s ambition and healthy living that drive her. “All I do is work, so I eat to live and to keep going. People are impressed with me because I can sleep for just 45 minutes — I’m used to it,” she explains, adding that her diet and exercise routine is non-existent. “Because I work so much, I’m always on the road so I eat healthily. I have to give my body what it needs to keep going and if you don’t then you will crash and burn. I don’t get to work out,” she continues. “I do yoga and 30 push-ups every day and try to get my mind right.”
The superstar has also brushed off the media sharknado she’s been at the center of, saying that folks are “over-thinking” her VMA appearance, according to The Week. “I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times,” she told MTV News. “Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance, that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history.” Her co-star for the performance, and voice of the song of the summer, Robin Thicke, was even said to have told her just before they went on stage: “You know we’re about to make history right now?”
“What’s amazing is… people are still talking about it,” she marvels. “[They’re] thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn’t even think about it cause [it was] just me [being me].” Wait, did she actually use the justification that she was “just being Miley”? Mind blown. — Casandra Armour
