Just when you thought Miley Cyrus couldn’t push the boat out any further, she comes along and proves everyone wrong.
The actress and singer has posed for what is without a doubt her sauciest photo shoot ever.
The 20-year-old can be seen tugging on her underwear, unbuttoning her trousers and cupping her bare breast in the shocking images. Miley also graces three different covers for V magazine, showing plenty of skin in each of them.
Miley shed her Disney princess image long ago, but the starlet still seems intent on proving again and again that she isn’t the wholesome type.
Fortunately for her any squeaky clean remnants of her reputation have been well and truly washed away with this eye-popping photo shoot. Miley also dyes her crop of hair various colours for the arresting snapshots, including bubblegum pink, bright orange, lilac and white.
And she said of her sudden and surprising image overhaul: ‘I chopped my hair and bought a pair of Docs and never looked back.’
For the new issue of the magazine, Miley was interviewed alongside Pharrell Williams, who helped produce her upcoming fourth studio album. Miley said of the record: ‘Everyone can like what we’re doing. That’s when I feel like my record is so different. It’s not what people expect where it’s me giving my middle finger and saying, “F*** you. I didn’t make a record for the people that love me.”
I made a record for the people that love me, but then I made a record for the people that I want to start to understand me.’ The album is scheduled to be released this year and Miley admitted she is glad she has taken her time on getting it right. ‘I got excited because on this record I can say whatever I want,’ she said. ‘And then I got more comfortable with that and the record got better and better.
‘If I had made it two years ago when I should have had a record come out, it would have been a little brat trying to say “This isn’t who I am! This is what I’m trying to prove!” Now I’m not trying to prove anything to anybody.’
Miley may be a huge admirer of Pharrell but it seems the hip hop star is just as much of a fan of hers.
Pharrell, 40, told the publication that he was impressed by Miley from the moment they first met. ‘When I met her, I just thought of a ball of fire,’ he recalled. ‘She was saying, “I like this and I like that.” And I was impressed, because she knew to say those things.’
Miley also took the time to mention that any rumours of a split between herself and fiancé Liam Hemsworth are false, and they simply work too hard to spend as much time together as they would like to.
I’m not home with my boyfriend all the time. We work,’ she said. ‘Every week it’s “Are they broken up? Because we don’t see a photo of them.” I don’t have time to go to Starbucks with my boyfriend every morning. I wish I did, but I don’t. ‘I’d rather chill at my house and be there for the time I actually get to spend with him. And then I’m at the studio all day. He gets up to work out at six and I come home at five from the studio.’
The star added that she has been prioritising her album over everything else recently – including wedding plans.
She said: ‘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. ‘
