Miley Cyrus Dishes On Being Single, Kanye West & Haters: “Society Wants To Shut Me Down!”

Miley Cyrus shines bright like a diamond—and an assortment of other sparkly jewels—on the December 2013 cover of Cosmopolitan. The 20-year-old singer, who is riding high after a successful hosting gig on Saturday Night Live and the release of her chart topping album, Bangerz, opened up on her crazy year thus far inside the magazine.

“Everything is so chaotic and crazy right now and it’s so much all at once, but I’m living for it,” Miley explained. “I’m just having the best time ever and everything’s falling into place like it’s supposed to. Even people who want to hate on me, they can’t even shut down the fact that I’m literally what everyone is talking about. I don’t want to say that I’m on top right now—I feel like I’m kind of an underdog in a cool way. It’s almost punk rock to like me because it’s not the right thing to do. Like, society wants to shut me down.”

Miley experienced extreme backlash after her racy performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. But the “Wrecking Ball” singer has no time for haters.

“When people started complaining about the awards show, I was like, ‘Have you never seen the fucking video?’ And what if I hadn’t done that performance?” she ponders.” The VMAs would have been bad. They would have been missing something. The show was kind of making fun of how serious the pop industry is.”

She continued, “I think everyone would have given anything to be me at that moment, because I was being one hundred percent true to myself…and not many people can say that. At the end of the day, I would say I’m a nice person, and I take pride in the fact that I treat everyone really well, so there’s no reason for anyone to ever come at me because I only want the best for everybody else. I have a song that’s like, ‘Stay in your lane,’ because I’m not going to be you and you’re definitely not going to be me, so don’t throw shade. I don’t ever throw shade at anyone.”

And whenever Miley starts to doubt herself, she just reminds herself of the celebrity friends that have her back.

“The support of other artists is important because there are not many people who can relate to what I’m going through right now,” Cyrus explained. “Kanye West is one of those people, and even Katy Perry has been so cool. It’s easy for Kanye to support me because we’re in totally separate lanes of competition, but for Katy to say that she appreciates what I’m really doing for the pop industry, that keeps you going. And I mean, who cares what the media buzz is if Kanye West is telling you that you’re the shit?”

One person no longer telling Miley she’s the shit is her ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth. But Miley promises she is doing better than ever.

“I need to treat my music like a relationship—give it my time and all the attention it deserves—and that’s my main love right now,” says the former Disney darling. “This is the best time of my life. I’m not going to look back on it and be like, ‘I wish I hadn’t been dwelling over a breakup,’ you know? Because that’s not what God wants my life to be about right now. God wants my life to be about being successful and being happy and blessing other people and being blessed.”
