Miley Cyrus, People Magazine

If only every 15-year-old could have Miley Cyrus' self-esteem.

"Coolest. Person. Ev-er!" she joked to People in a recent interview when asked how she would describe herself.

Then, upon reflection, she replied, "I think I'm chill. I am very hyper but I'm very carefree."

Aside from her calm and collected side, Cyrus also reveals a few of her oh-so-teenage proclivities, such as her desire for a new car when she turns 16, her big crush on the coolest handbags and her beauty regimen—mascara and a suntan.

Ah, to still be years away from voting age.

The star of the upcoming Hannah Montana Movie, which she's been filming in Nashville this summer, also admits to eating ketchup right out of the bottle (now there's something the paparazzi have missed) and preferring tomboy wear and Juicy Couture sweats when she doesn't have to be all dolled up.

But although she might not be your typical girly girl, it's not as if she doesn't make time to think about boys: Ask her whom she prefers, McDreamy or McSteamy, and she'll tell you that she's a Dempsey girl all the way.

Of course, all this chitchat is probably just leading up to a few more pressing topics, such as what Cyrus has learned in the wake of the Vanity Fair photo flap.

"A lot has happened," she says. "There have been a lot of changes, but it's all good. I've been really blessed."

The teen says that she still has things to learn about "knowing which people I can trust and being more aware of my surroundings. It's like Dorothy—I'm not in Kansas anymore."

Meanwhile, the Disney Channel phenom has a new Hannah-free album, Breakout, ready to drop July 22, all just part of her plan to conquer the world by 18.

"Madonna always reinvents herself, and that's what I want to do," Cyrus says. "Whatever comes my way that sounds good, that's what I want to do. Whether it's designing clothes or photography or whatever."
