1. I would always: Be home with my pig if I could—her name is Pig.
I would never: Leave home without Pig. Like right now, the only reason why I wanna go home is so I can play with Pig. She lets me paint her nails!
2. I’m picky about: Food. I’m better now but not that much better. I didn’t eat anything green until I was 18. I only ate yellow food.
Not so much about: Fancy hotels. At some of the places we stayed while we were on tour, everyone was like, “This is shady.” I’m like, “They got room service, I’m happy.”
3. Glad it’s ahead of me: I’m 21, and I have a lot of options of what I could do in my life. And my next album is gonna be really fun. I think I’m going to do a lot of cool things by the time I’m only 25. Then I have longer to do some other really cool things.
Glad it’s behind me: I had some shady wardrobe choices when I was about 16 to 18. I wore this hippie outfit to Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never premiere that I’m like, Girl, who told you—it was not Woodstock, it was a premiere.
Miley Cyrus sat down with Glamour’s Alessandra Stenherr to talk about Miley’s new team-up with MAC and their Viva Glam line. The video was conducted during Miley’s press conference for the new line last year.
On working with MAC: “I think it’s important for me, someone who talks to so many young people all the time, being able to take advantage of the platform that I’ve been given. That’s why MAC is so cool – they do the same thing. It’s so easy when you have everything to not wanna give back in this way, but MAC are using their power for good, versus kind of doing nothing with it.”
I: I follow you on Instagram and through your photos you look totally different than the woman i’ve seen at the Viva glam party, since you are mature. Are you the woman I follow on Instagram? Or the one that attended the party? On Instagram you’re enjoying yourself more?
M: I was enjoying myself at the party too. That’s my personality & I liked to act myself. I had to do that & everyone who were in the room were happy about this event. I was happy to donate 100 thousand dollars for a cause that deserved it. Rihanna will also be donating the same amount, and we felt that we’re all lucky with what were doing. I was enjoying myself really and I’m the same person.
What can a pop superstar teach the wild-haired 53-year-old frontman of one of the world’s biggest psych rock acts?
Wayne Coyne has been at the helm of Oklahoma City’s Flaming Lips since 1984. At 22, Miley Cyrus is a toddler by comparison, a former teen idol who rose to fame via Disney series Hannah Montana.
But the unlikely partnership has spawned matching tattoos, general debauchery and an ostentatious track-for-track remake of the Beatles’ 1967 classic Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
An elder statesman showing a bright young thing the ropes wouldn’t be anything new, but, as Coyne puts it: “I think I get more from it than her.”
It’s 3.40am on December 3, and he has just landed in Miami Beach.
Coyne is there to play for Tommy Hilfiger at some fancy hotel as part of Art Basel – “one big party” masquerading as an international art show.
