Miley Cyrus Dishes on her New Music with ‘Billboard Magazine’

mileycyrus-billboard

Miley Cyrus has been constantly in the news lately. From her fresh new look, to her random twerking performances, the singer has tongue’s wagging. The “Can’t Be Tamed” singer sat down with Billboard magazine to chat on hew new sound, her new music and why she feels people wanted her to be the White Nicki Minaj.

Check out some snippets from her Billboard interview below.

On her new music approach:
“Right now, when people go to iTunes and listen to my old music, it’s so irritating to me because I can’t just erase that stuff and start over. My last record [2009’s EDM-inflected Can’t Be Tamed] I feel so disconnected from – I was 16 ot 17 when I made it. When you’re in your 20s, you just don’t really know that person anymore.”

On the track, “We Can’t Stop”:
“I didn’t make this song for the critics, but for the people living it. I’m 20 years old and I want to talk to people that are up all night with their friends. It’s based on a true story of a crazy night I had: When I heard the song for the first time, it captured exactly what I was living.”

On the music genre of her new album:
“I’ve always wanted country-rock influences, but now I’m moving over to a more urban side. It’s not a hip-hop album, though- it’s a pop album I’m not coming in trying to rap. It’s more like, ‘I don’t see any girls out there doing what Miguel and Frank Ocean are doing. We’ve been calling it ‘count-step,’ because it’s like country, dubstep and a little trap. I love the Lumineers, but I also love French Montana, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Dolly Parton. If you could put Dolly, some Adele and Juicy J together, you’d have a weird balance.”

On people wanting a different Miley:
“A lot of people wanted to try to make me the white Nicki Minaj. That’s not what I’m trying to do. I love ‘hood’ music, but my talent is as a singer.”

Amber Rose To Vibe Magazine: “F**K that Cover F**K Vibe Magazine”

Amber Rose fired off a few angry tweets about her Vibe magazine interview in the wee hours of the morning.

Rose along with Rick Ross, both cover Vibe’s “Sexy Issue” series. Well it seems like Amber just got around to reading the full interview she did with the magazine. And let’s just say she’s none too pleased.

Check out her tweets below.

So what has Amber so angry? Maybe it was the following statements that Vibe said she state din the interview:

“People think me and Kanye are enemies, and we are not enemies. He wants the best for me, still,” she said in the magazine. “Let me say this: I still love Kanye. I will always love him as a person. I will always love him for what he’s done for me. I still always have that soft spot in my heart for him. I am not in love with him. I do not look at him in a sexual way anymore. I’m in love with someone else. I still love him as a person and want him to find happiness like I did. Everyone deserves that.”

Or maybe it was one of these statements that Vibe said Amber made:

AMBER ON LIFE POST-KANYE:
“What am I supposed to do? Crawl up in a corner and die ‘cause I’m not with Kanye anymore? Am I supposed to go back to the strip club and not take these opportunities that I have?”

AMBER OF HER RELATIONSHIP WITH REGGIE BUSH:
“Me and Reggie [Bush] dated very briefly after Kanye…We were both each other’s rebound and we both knew that and were cool with that.”

AMBER ON WHY HER STORY IS RELATABLE:
“I don’t have rich parents and it’s a struggle. I can’t just call my dad and be like, ‘Dad, my money is a little messed up. Can you buy me a car or a house? It’s not like that for me. I feel like more people will relate to my story than the Kardashians or the Hiltons.”

AMBER ON BEING ICONIC:
“Kanye would always tell be how beautiful I was and that I was going to be iconic. He always said that, ‘Baby, you are iconic. You don’t understand what you have. I didn’t. I didn’t understand it.”

Even I have to admit that when I read the interview the first time, the way Amber was portrayed made her seem ungrateful and still in love with West, which of course is disrespectful to Amber’s current beau Wiz Khalifa.  Either way, it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose might seem like a odd pairing, but they are definitely making their relationship work.  Wiz spoke highly of his beau Amber during a recent interview he did with the Kojo & Max’s Choice Breakfast Show . The pair haven’t been dating for long, but the rapper is so smitten wit Amber that he’s hinting at marrying her.

Wiz Khalifa on how he and Amber handle him having a lot of female fans:

“Nah I can say hi to them, I can shake their hand, take pictures and stuff. As long as it’s respectful because Amber is very mature as far as that goes. She knows I have fans and they love me and she respects my music and looks at me sort of that way too, because she respects that it’s like she knows what they’re looking at. Just the same thing I know what guys are looking at when they see her.”

Wiz on the public status of their relationship:

“We talk about it openly and publicly whenever we do. Yeah I don’t mind [people asking about the relationship].” Wiz then went on to explain why he’s so captivated with model Rose “She’s just so positive and she’s just understanding of my life and capable of dealing with a person like me and I’m not like a crazy person but I’m creative and I’m really busy and I do a lot but she just has the capacity to deal with all of that and make me interested in her just as a person and not just her look or anything like that.”

Wiz on how the public treats Amber Rose:

“I feel like they definitely label her as something that she’s not and try to run with that. Misunderstood? That’s kind of like a crazy word as sometimes it’s good to be misunderstood, like that mystery and people not knowing exactly who you are because you get a chance to prove to them who you are but at the end of the day Amber is a sweet girl, she’s a good girl, she’s always been that and anybody who knows there, that’s all they can say about her.”

Wiz on his future with Amber and if he’ll put a ring on it:

“Sure!! She’s definitely the last girl I’m going to be with.”

When Rose was asked about her soon-to-open sunglasses shop, she told Vibe the following:

“I have a reality show that’s gonna come out on VH1,” Rose said. “I start filming early June. So that’s going to be incorporated in the show. The shop isn’t up right now. You’ll see the process I have to go through to in order to.it’s not really easy to get a store and get people to come. My show’s gonna be an open book of my life, my family, my businesses. It’s called ‘Behind Her Shades’ because I usually have shades on, and it’s everything that’s behind them that people don’t know about but they’ll learn and part of that is my shade shop.””I have a reality show that’s gonna come out on VH1,” Rose said.

Now you may ask why did Amber lie? Well she stretched the truth a little, okay maybe a lot. Amber did shoot a pilot for her own reality show and she’s currently shopping for networks to pick it up.

Rose’s new shop will sell vintage frames, her own line of sunglasses and women’s accessories.
