Miley Cyrus snagged the cover of W Magazine‘s March “Social Media Issue,” and, no surprise here, she’s scantily clad. The singer was interviewed by Ronan Farrow, speaking out on the negative attention about her image, which just oozes sex, as well as the bad press about her tour.
“I don’t give a s–t,” she boldly said about her upcoming Bangerz tour, which already has accusations that she is exploiting her minority backup dancers. “I’m not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl, to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright colored T-shirts. You know, it’s like, I’m not making any kind of statement. Anyone that hates on you is below you, because they’re just jealous of what you have.”
In terms of her provocative image, Miley claims it’s a stand against the norm among peers . “I just don’t get what half the girls are wearing. Everyone to me seems like Vanna White. I’m trying to tell girls, like, ‘F–k that. You don’t have to wear makeup. You don’t have to have long blonde hair and big t–ties. That’s not what it’s about. It’s, like, personal style.’ I like that I’m associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock sh-t where we just don’t care,” she said. “Like Madonna or Blondie or Joan Jett—Jett’s the one that I still get a little shaky around. She did what I did in such a crazier way. I mean, girls then weren’t supposed to wear leather pants and, like, f–king rock out. And she did.”

I don’t know if it’s the lack of heavy makeup, bleached eyebrows, Photoshop, or what, but Miley looks NOTHING like herself here! Miley has officially switched to Rihanna–Good Girl Gone Bad mode, turning over a new leaf to get publicity. She’s going to do what she wants, when she wants, how she wants. I just hope it doesn’t come back to bite her later.
