Miley Cyrus to Barbara Walters: ‘I don’t ever want to have to need someone again’

Miley Cyrus

Here’s a promo picture of Miley with Barbara Walters during the filming of the very last edition of Most Fascinating People. The episode airs Wednesday night. As you can see, Miley got actually dressed (in clothes, not pasties) for her big interview. She went subdued with the hair and makeup, and her tongue isn’t hanging out all over the place (at least in this photo). How discombobulating.

I’m sure the full interview will contain many references to twerking and the VMAs, and maybe Miley will offer to show Barbara how to twerk. Surely she’ll be more respectful to Barb than she was to Matt Lauer (even though Lauer had it coming). Here are some highlights from the upcoming special:

Miley Cyrus, 21, and Liam Hemsworth, 23, were together for four years and announced their engagement in 2012, but the couple confirmed in September that they had called it quits. While she loved Hemsworth, Cyrus said, she believes she can now “actually be happy” on her own.

“I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had this entire year. I don’t ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like without them you can’t be yourself,” she tells Walters.

“I don’t think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn’t change being engaged,” she said. “It was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years,” Cyrus said, “But now, I just feel like I can actually be happy. I wait for those moments of silence, when I’m just at my house, by myself.”

Several tracks on the pop singer’s latest album, Bangerz, refer to love. In the song “Drive,” Cyrus crones the lyrics, “I was crazy, thinking you were mine. It was all just a lie,” but denied there was anything false about her and Hemsworth’s relationship.

“I don’t think there was any, any lies,” she said.

When asked whether she ever wanted to be married and spend the rest of her life with someone, Cyrus said, “I think I’ll want that in the times that it needs to be.”

This interview is going to be hilarious. Miley is flat-out lying about loving to be alone. Either that or she’s forgotten about how she tweets up a storm about being bored and so depressed whenever there’s no one around to amuse her. I think she’s just trying to sound wise in this interview because it’s Barbara Walters, and it’s a fairly transparent ploy. But I could be wrong. Maybe Miley has really grown up in these past few weeks.

In other Miley news, she has tweeted that we’re all so predictable in our responses to her heart boobs of equality:

Miley also won the Music Choice award for best female artist. Here’s her acceptance speech:

    Ugh, I am SO tired of her. Could she go away now? Do something for herself and not for attention for a while – maybe then come back with a different persepctive.

  2. Neffie says:

    i hope buy next year people will be over this gimmick, as evidenced by Gaga there is no longevity with stunt queens, just extremely exhausting.

  3. Belle Epoch says:

    “People are proving my point so easily” WTF? She has the brain and attention span of a squirrel. No matter how her tricky little exhibitionist card was received she would have claimed the same thing. See, she’s in control. She’s Deep. She’s all about equality. THAT’S why she had to twerk on Santa.

    • Meredith says:

      Agreed. She is the deepest of the deep. But really the point is that when she “wears clothes”, she isn’t topless. It’s not the amount of fabric, Miley, it’s that here you’re flashing your nipples and you think you’re somehow proving a point. No, you’re not – you’re just flashing your nipples. I am so over her.

  4. Dani2 says:

    I always got the impression from interviews and pictures that Miley was way more into Liam than he was into her. I hope she finds happiness in her future. I really mean that too lol, even though her public persona can be annoying.

  5. Evi says:

    This girl plays the role of independent woman, but she is very messed up. Any person who needs to objectify and ‘pornify’ themselves and smoke dope on a regular basis to function, has got serious problems.
    She may not need someone, but she certainly needs attention, even if she stoops to self destructive levels.

  6. MrsBPitt says:

    Regarding her tweet: Miley, EVERYONE ON THE PLANET HAS ALREADY SEEN YOUR BOOBS…put them away, where they belong!!! God, she is still soooooo young!!! On marriage “I think I’ll need that in the times it needs to be” What??? What??? She sounds like a moron, who is trying to sound intelligent! Not working, dear!

  7. blue marie says:

    She says all the right things to lead you to believe she’s grown up but her actions contradict it. There is nothing wrong with acting her age but maybe she could contain the nips a bit more.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I agree that her actions show how immature she is. She has that arrogance of youth, thinking that she’s much wiser than she is, and that she’s demonstrating some kind of feminist message by taking her clothes off. She’s so very far from grown up. So full of herself. I wonder if she’ll ever grow up?

      • Leila says:

        Choosing nudity or choosing to wear revealing clothes aren’t necessarily feminist, just like choosing to dress modestly and not be nude isn’t necessarily feminist. But the idea that women should have freedom in these areas (as we are the sole owners of our bodies, not our parents, our future marriage mates, the church, etc.) is feminist.

  8. Tessa says:

    She’s laughing all the way to the bank, I hate to say it. I think she’s a lot savvier than we give her credit for. She knows how to shock, then pull away, then shock, then button up for an interview… All the while her music is selling big time and her tour will be huge. Who wouldn’t want to see Miley, even if just for the s and g’s?

  9. Aussie girl says:

    From what I can understand is she always has that assistant and friends around her 24/7.

  10. BeckyR says:

    She appears to be one of the neediest people on the planet. Exhibitionists usually are.

  11. mercy says:

    It seems to me she needs a whole lot of people to pay attention to her.

  12. SamiHami says:

    I can’t decide if she’s really savvy or just plain lucky. I mean, she can sing, no question there, but the singing is almost an afterthought anymore. It’s all about shock value and headline grabbing. But the thing it, it’s working. She’s all over the media, getting the headlines, getting people like us commenting about her. That translates into $$$ for her. So, not sure what to make of her.

  13. Marigold says:

    This girl is so f**king obtuse. That is all.

  14. Ellie says:

    I’ve just watched her saying the same thing about not needing anyone on The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet airing on UK tv at the moment. It was filmed almost two years ago, after which she went on to live with Liam and get engaged, she’s full of it.

  15. Frenzy says:

    still can’t stand pancake ass’ duffy duck voice!

  16. Terae says:

    Wow she didn’t even lick her award…. Shocking

  17. aquarius64 says:

    Barbara Walters must be desperate for ratings on her show to even interview this twit.

  18. feebee says:

    She said something once not living in the 50s anymore (re the short hair being okay) but she seems perfectly happy living in the 80s with the high waisted, high cut knickers and the F**k me boots (at least that’s what those things were called in the 80s).

  19. Sandy says:

    If Miley is doing this to shed her “teenage” image, I don’t think it’s working. She seems even more immature than ever before. Someone needs to tell her that she is sinking her brand. She’s a beautiful girl, and when she’s dressed well, she looks like she could rep an up-scale brand. But she seems determined to be low-class, so it’s never going to happen.

  20. mj says:

    Aww. For some reason this interview made me feel bad for her. I mean, I’ve felt bad for her, for being in the Disney machine and then re-made as a spunky hypersexualized pop puppet, but this interview made me go, aww.

  21. jaesie says:

    Her tour probably won’t do well. She has lost a ton of fans in reality, which are her Hannah Montana fans. Lots of parents don’t like her either.
    And besides, she talks as if she has been in the industry for 20+ yearss or something. If not for her dad and Disney, she would be a reject in Hollywood, who probably has to do waitressing or working in bars to pay the bills while audtioning for parts. Bill Ray said she use to cry every time she would not a part in something she auditoned for. So her dad was the one fighting tooth and nail for her to get what she wanted. How ungrateful she is towards him and the Dinsey brand. I hope after her tour flops, we never hear from her again. Infact , she DID fade back in 2011 and half of 2012. Until her stupid haircut. Thats all it takes to be back in the ‘news’. Selena, Taylor and Ariana atleast won’t be flopping if they decide to do touring. They all have a very srtong fanbase and are just as famous as Miley is. So she has some tough comeption from them.

  22. eriey says:

    I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing but Ellen gave away free tickets to Miley’s upcoming concerts on her show for one of her 12 days things. Only a handful of the audeince looked geuinly excited. If she truley was in demand and was so confident her tour is gonna do well, then she wouldn’t need people like Ellen trying to sell her crap. I don’t recall Ellen ever giving away free Justin Timberlake or Bruno Mars or even Selena Gomez tickets.

  23. Caroline says:

    It’s normal to feel conflicted after a break-up. She was with someone for three years in her late teens, give her a break.

  24. John says:

    “In the song “Drive,” Cyrus crones the lyrics, “I was crazy, thinking you were mine. It was all just a lie,” ”

    “Crones”? What does that mean? Imitates a withered old woman?
