Miley Cyrus knows exactly what she wants.
And that includes a future with fiancé Liam Hemsworth, a successful music career and a signature punk rock style. Looking sexy and scantily clad on the cover of V magazine, the 20-year-old pop star opens up about her ever-evolving style, her relationship and her new music.
"I'm not home with my boyfriend all the time. We work. Every week, it's ‘Are they broken up?' because we don't see a photo of them," the young starlet, whose relationship status has been making headlines, explained. "I don't have time go to Starbucks with my boyfriend every morning…He gets up to work out at six and I come home at five from the studio. I put this record before everything, and I've never done that with anything. I've put too much into this record to put anything else in front of it."
Miley says she's entirely focused on her new album, and she's already released a hit song with Snoop Lion, introducing her new sound to the world.
"I can never say that I don't love "Party in the U.S.A." and that I'm not appreciative of it," she says of her Disney days. "It would like my dad saying that he hated 'Achy Breaky.' It's what gives you everything that you have. I would never take it back."
Although Miley is grateful for her Hannah Montana experience, the singer has no intention of returning to her wholesome roots—which means her super-short hair and new-found punky style is sticking around (RIP, Miley's topknot).
"I'm going to change, I'm going to be different, I'm going to do what I want to do. I chopped my hair and bought a pair of Docs and never looked back," she insists.
Pal Pharrell Williams, who's working with the singer on her upcoming album, also weighs in on Miley's new image, complimenting the singer on her smooth transition from Disney star to punk rock princess.
"I kept hearing about his girl Miley who had this song 'The Climb.' And then there was the video with her locked in the cage…" he says.
"'Can't Be Tamed,'" Miley clarifies.
"I was like, 'Okay, she wants out,'" he says, before Miley chimes in, "In my mind, I'm Gucci Mane, but on paper I'm a pop artist."
And that's exactly why we love her.
