Miley’s raunchy performance at the VMAs shocked millions. In a stunning new interview, the grown-up singer possibly reveals how it got so out of control. Should we be concerned about Miley?
Miley Cyrus sings that she can’t stop, but does she need to? In a revealing new interview given just before the VMAs, the 20-year-old singer may have explained her performance at the VMAs on Aug. 25, and the reasoning sounds much darker than you’d think.
Miley Cyrus: ‘I Am So F**ked Up’
It sounds as though Miley wasn’t trying to just shock a ton of people with her twerking-heavy, borderline vulgar rendition of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines” at the VMAs — it’s just who she is. “I have so many f**king issues,” Miley told The Mirror. “I am so f**ked up — everyone does dumb stuff when they’re messed up.”
It’s hard to tell if Miley was joking around or if she was serious saying these things, but the picture she paints of her life throughout the interview is somewhat troubling.
“I don’t have a normal life,” Miley added. “I take a hiatus every now and again but I’m not good at that.”
Miley explained that she is the ultimate workaholic — she eats, sleeps, and breathes her career.
Miley Cyrus: What Caused Her Raunchy VMA Performance?
Is that obsessiveness clouding her judgment? That might explain why she went so over-the-top at the VMAs, molesting teddy bears, Robin Thicke, and a foam finger.
Then again, it doesn’t quite seem like Miley has any regrets about her shock-inducing award show moment. Her admitting that she’s “f**ked up” doesn’t suggest that she’d take back a second of her tryst in a flesh-colored latex bikini. That explanation is more likely an admission that she knows she has a wilder sense of boundaries that the general public doesn’t agree with.
At the very least, it’s reassuring to see that Miley is at least self-aware. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
