Miley Cryus has been revealing quite a bit of herself lately, including her thoughts on recreational drugs.
Miley Cyrus has taken it a step higher.In a new set of quotes released from Cyrus’ in-depth interview with the Oct. 10 issue of Rolling Stone magazine, the 20-year-old singer delves into her use of recreational drugs.
The former “Hannah Montana” starlet told the edgy mag that “weed is the best drug on earth,” and other substances such as cocaine and MDMA, also known as molly, don’t really hold a candle to marijuana
“One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon,” Cyrus told Rolling Stone contributing editor Josh Eells.
“Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And molly, too. Those are happy drugs — social drugs. They make you want to be with friends. You’re out in the open. You’re not in a bathroom.”
“I really don’t like coke. It’s so gross and so dark. It’s like, what are you, from the ’90s? Ew,” she added.
Despite her slam on the ’90s, she did tell Rolling Stone that her controversial music video for “Wrecking Ball,” in which she strips completely nude, was inspired by an icon from the decade, Sinead O’Connor and her video for “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
“I wanted it to be tough but really pretty — that’s what Sinead did with her hair and everything.”
The 20-year-old singer hopes her ‘Wrecking Ball’ video inspires artists 30 years from now. She hopes they say: ‘Yo, you remember that Miley Cyrus video? We gotta do something like that.’
O’Connor was not naked, but she was bald.
Cyrus admitted that she knew there would be backlash from her choice to ditch her clothes for the video version of the intense ballad.
“I think people are going to hate it. They’re going to see my ass and be like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe she did that,'” she said.
“And then when we get to the bridge, they’re gonna have a little tear and be like, ‘F–k you!’ I think it will be one of those iconic videos, too. I think it’s something that people are not gonna forget. Hopefully an artist 30 years from now will be like, ‘Yo, you remember that Miley Cyrus video? We gotta do something like that.'”
Cyrus is well aware that she is a far cry from her days as a Disney darling, especially with her recent antics including her salacious MTV Video Music Award’s performance and her countless revealing photo shoots, however, she did say being a rebel can be emboldening.
“There’s something empowering about what I’m doing right now. Especially having short hair, don’t care. I think it’s empowering for girls,” she said.
“Because there’s not one thing that defines what beauty is.”
Cyrus goes on to address her love-hate relationship with the constant media attention surrounding her
“I said I was going to take a year off before I made this record. But it’s hard to take a break. It’s almost depressing when you’re not working. You’re so used to people calling your name, and that energy, and when you don’t have it anymore … That’s why I never complain about people wanting autographs or pictures. Because if there were a few days where no one asked, I’d probably be like, ‘What the fuck’s going on?? Do people not like me?’”
Cyrus continued on about the Catch-22 of fame
“I hate the paparazzi — but when they’re not sitting there waiting for you, you’re like ‘Who’s bigger news? Who are you trying to get a picture of?’”
