Miley Cyrus recently took off her top for her first cover on Rolling Stone magazine.
This latest skin-baring event follows her nude "Wrecking Ball" video and infamous twerking on the VMAs, in which she did unspeakable things with a giant foam finger.
In her interview with Rolling Stone, Cyrus claims her VMA performance was actually toned down.
“Honestly, that was our MTV version. We could have even gone further, but we didn’t. I thought that’s what the VMAs were all about! It’s not the Grammys or the Oscars. You’re not supposed to show up in a gown, Vanna White-style. It’s supposed to be fun!” says Cyrus.
Cyrus laughed about the criticism from Brooke Shields, who called her VMA performance “desperate.”
“Brooke Shields was in a movie where she was a prostitute at age 12!” roared Cyrus.
When it comes to fellow young idol Justin Bieber, Cyrus says she advises him, kind of.
"I’m not much older than him, so I never want it to feel like I’m mentoring him. But I do mentor him in a way. Because I’ve been doing this s--- for a long time, and I already transitioned, and I don’t think he’s quite done it yet, He’s trying really hard,” says the 20 year old pop star.
"People don’t take him seriously, but he really can play the drums, he really can play guitar, he really can sing. I just don’t want to see him f--- that up, to where people think he’s Vanilla Ice. I tell him that. Like, ‘You don’t want to become a joke. When you go out, don’t start s---. Don’t come in shirtless.’ But the thing is I think boys are, like, seven years behind. So in his head, he’s really, like, 12.”
