Miley Cyrus on Terry Richardson: ‘His women look so strong in his images’

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus covers the November issue Canada’s Fashion magazine. This cover and preview are not promising, but the interview is interesting. Miley has busied herself this week by hiding from the paps in the backseats of cars after her latest crotchgate and bizarre Rolling Stone cover feature. She wants the attention, but she doesn’t.

Liam Hemsworth just walked the red carpet alone in NYC for a Hugo Boss event. Miley talks about Liam in this interview. She never mentions him by name, but Miley wrote one song on the Bangerz album about him. It’s a sad song about wanting “to leave someone.” She wrote on Valentine’s Day — a few weeks before Liam Hemsworth got in a car with January Jones. Hmm:

Her discerning taste in fashion: “I can go through so many clothes say ‘no, that’s not me’ right away. I’m so adamant and controlling and OCD about my work that I can scare some people–especially when it comes to clothes. I have a very specific style of my own and I think it is better to be stylish than trendy. I find vintage Celine or Chanel and mix it with athletic or vintage pieces makes a look modern and fresh. Vintage makes everything look punk.”

More on MTV’s VMA censorship: “I was trying to slap Robin’s ass but no one saw it! Believe me! MTV edited so much. They cut almost everything I did. I’m proud of that performance. I feel like music is really stale right now. I could have guessed what a lot of artists would have done that night. The reaction to what I did has been insane. I think it was a breath of fresh air! For the people that don’t get it, you weren’t meant to.”

On “Drive,” which is about Liam Hemsworth: “I wrote it while I was working on Valentine’s Day–emotionally it was such a hard time. It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It’s a time when you want to leave but you can’t. It’s also about moving on.”

Uncle Terry is the best: “Terry Richardson shot my video for ‘Wrecking Ball’ and he’s about capturing strength versus beauty. His women look so strong in his images.”

On critics and competition:: “I feel like I’m in a different lane now. When it comes to critics, I have my blinders on and I don’t really feel like I have to compete with other pop artists. I never think, ‘oh this performance is going to make her look bad or out-shadow her’ either but if there is no competition, there would be no reason for any of us to show up to work. At an office, everyone is trying to be boss. Pop music is the same. What I wear adds a factor that other girls can’t compete with.”

Her VMA red-carpet outfit: “I found what I wore on the red carpet to the VMAs with Pharrell. It was a Dolce and Gabbana piece from 1992–the year I was born. He saw it and said, ‘you have to buy it.’ I think that outfit added a factor that the other girls couldn’t compete with. Pharrell says it’s not about what you’re wearing; it’s the way you wear it. That was a lesson I took to heart. I think it is important that I execute a look better than other people. Fashion is what separates me from everyone else.”

[From Fashion]

Do you notice how Miley keeps telling herself that her style “adds a factor that other girls can’t compete with“? It’s like when she says wearing white means she’s “on a whole other level of sh-t.” Oh and she always brings her own bag of accessories to shoots because stylists usually suck. The level of delusion here is amazing. She’s forgotten about the music and is only thinking about her style. I feel like she realizes her image is her only way of getting attention, so she keeps talking it up like she’s doing something truly valuable for society.

The stuff she says about Uncle Terry is ridiculous too. Of course Terry makes women look strong! Incredibly strong blow-up dolls.

Here’s some assorted Twitpics. I miss seeing Miley’s dogs’ tongues.

    Terry ain’t no Helmut Newton, Miley.

    • gg says:

      Ha-ha THIS! ^

      He makes them look like vulnerable objects to be treated badly for a couple of bucks to me. The harsh unforgiving lighting and pandering poses are gross and convey exploitation and that’s his whole shtick. He has nothing else. He can’t do art.

      • Hakura says:

        @gg – I agree… He does just the opposite, making women look *weak*, like a sex object or the overly-submissive women in a porno, something to be used & discarded. It makes me sad that she seems to see that as ‘strength’. Being ‘sexy’ or ‘sexually overt’, or even in the ‘submissive’ position sometimes isn’t the problem, it’s just how belittling almost ALL of his pictures are.

        He’s such a big thing right now, all the big names are using him, & it just completely escapes me as to why.

    • mimifarrow says:

      Omg THIS times eleventy billion.

    • littlestar says:

      Mmmm hmmm!

    • mommak918 says:

      But guys, listen…listen….we, just dont get it. We werent meant to get it. It is SO above us.

      Like, I cant wear white…and since I dont twerk and stick my tongue out…nor was I born with millions of dollars and have a dad and mom that applaud me when I touch myself or grind on married men…then well, we arent going to get it her look, how she is above everyone and everthing…and also since we’re not turnt out and ratchet.

      It’s just…too beyond us.

      • Hakura says:

        @mommak918Damn, & here I was, desperately trying to climb to her whole other level of shit. I wanted so badly to be one of those her songs were meant for… My lack of understanding her musical excellence or one-a-kind-unique ‘style’ & self molestation during performances has me on anti-depressants. Just couldn’t manage to get my hands on a “Perc“…

        (She’s been spending too much time with her new friend, Kanye. Yes, they’ve apparently bonded… He has ‘more faith in her as an artist’ than anyone else right now (his pep-talk backstage at the VMAs right before her ‘performance’). Like she really needed an ego boost to start with…)

      • JGL says:

        What got me was, “Vintage makes everything look punk.” You have GOT to be kidding me! Miley, PUNK?! She’s the complete opposite of punk! The saddest thing is that soon enough people are going to actually start calling her a punk (especially since she calls herself/style that).

    • Kim says:

      Both have zero talent so go the “shock” route. I put shock in quotes because it isnt shocking, its passe & stupid.

    • ichsi says:

      Oh this is a perfect first comment!

  2. palermo says:

    I think he makes women look the opposite of strong, just skanky

    • Ok says:

      Yup. Agree there. It is like low cost
      Fetish photography.

    • LadyJane says:

      I think she meant he makes women look (like they smell) strong. Surely.

    • MavenTheFirst says:

      This uneducated dullard believes that all her power comes from her sexuality. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

      And the low rent Richardson feeds into that while he exploits and debases women and images of women. It’s a match made in heaven.

      Who really has the power, Miley?

      • DrM says:

        THANK YOU!!! My thoughts exactly. And its sad…get older Miley, have a kid and your body will change…or just keep smoking, hanging out with questionables and like Lindsay Lohan that fresh face of yours will fade fast – power comes from what’s between your ears and in your heart. And how you hone and wield it. THAT is the message we need to be sending.

      • Hakura says:

        @DrM – I particularly like the way you worded that. I know this sounds a bit more ‘crass’, but what I think she needs to hear is: “Strength/Power comes from what’s between your Ears & in your heart, not what’s between your Legs & on your chest.”

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      I’m just creeped out by Terry. He reminds me of a molester. I don’t know if its the facial hair or how he has the girls pose for the camera but there is something about him that screams creeper and not being left in a room alone with him.

      Gals, it’s obvious her new style is meant for her Disney fans since us adults think she looks trashy and try hard.

      • drea says:

        Well, there’s a valid reason he looks like a molester to you. Some of the models he pressured into having sex with him–in quite a few cases, while being photographed–spoke out. After that, many other rumors and stories made their way to the public. And yes, a number of the girls in the stories were in their teens when Terry got to them.

        What’s sickening is that after the initial scandal from the models’ revelations, nothing happened. He’s got that kind of traction. And for every abused or exploited model who wants to hang him, there are many others who are more than willing to f*ck him for gigs.

  3. Lucy says:

    Other girls this, other girls that. Me vs. everyone else. Me, me, me!!! Btw, Liam looks a lot happier in those Hugo Boss pictures than in many others in which she’s next to him.

  4. ZigZagZoey says:

    Oh yes, she is absolutely right….I saw one recently with a girl lying down with her back arched as far as possible while sitting on a door mat. I immediately thought to myself “Now, there’s a strong woman”….

    WTF She has lost her mind…. if she ever had one in the first place…

    • gg says:

      perfect. A door mat. At least he doesn’t obfuscate his intentions I guess. Dirty Old Men unite!

    • Chicagogurl says:

      i thought the same thing when i saw the upton swimsuit video. wow, that girl must be so strong….or at least had a strong back to support those things while jumping so much.

      • gg says:

        My first thought on seeing any photos of his is that he probably got them drunk or they did a bunch of lines just to get them on that white wall and shouted out nasty things to them. :: bleeeeeeiiiiiichhh ::
        I’ve just skeeved myself out by typing that.

  5. Merritt says:

    I can’t with her. Terry Richardson is one of the most disgusting people.

  6. Lindy79 says:

    She’s delusional. He’s disgusting but it ties in with her attitude that being naked/sexual automatically equals being empowered as a woman especially when standing next to a fully clothed man (his Glee shoot). It’s not that black and white but she’s too stupid to see that.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Exactly. Women have not advanced as much as they have in the last 100 years because of images created by the likes of Terry Richardson, but in spite of them.

    • Sarah says:

      If it’s her fashion and style that set her apart from other artists, how come she never has any clothes on? Exhibit A : being naked in her Wrecking Ball video.

  7. Nanz says:

    Pardon me for shouting, but…


    Ok, inside voice now:

    Terry Richardson’s one “thing,” his one “artistic move” is EXPLOITATION. It’s like what they might look like right before he intimidates them into doing gawd knows what. Even the most confident women come across looking dead-eyed and weak. He makes women look like prey.

  8. Chicagogurl says:

    Ok, i officially am peeved by her. The tongue, the grills, the fake hard core, the use of “punk”, shopping with pharell, fawning over uncle terry like every other chick-a-dee wannabe. How does she sound like a lost little girl and a bored housewife who’s day drinking all at the same time? She’s trying to be “hard” but talking about shopping with one of the worlds biggest producers at the premiere fashion houses. I think she wants to be Kanye. She is one all caps twitter rant away from complete copycat of kanye (without his talent). There is nothing original about her at all. I already see the sit down interviews in 10 years talking about how she was so lost around today and doesn’t regret it, but who she truly says she is now 2013 was not actually who she is.

    P.S. I am completely baffled at how neither Treach nor Vin Rock as come out and said something snarky about her name dropping NBN and hip hop hooray. Vin Rock always had a way of cutting to the core back in the day. Here’s hoping…in 3….2….1….

    • Hakura says:

      @Chicagogurl – Being that you’re aparently from Chicago, I’m sure you were already annoyed at her for the blasphemous ‘tribute’ she just did for Jordan. x_x

      But there’s good reason for her acting like Kanye. They’re apparently ‘friends’ now. Like I mentioned above, she said ‘Kanyes’ the shit‘, & that right before her VMA ‘performance’, he came backstage & said “I have more faith in you as an artist than anyone else right now“. So we’ll surely see more bragging & so on.

  9. Jules says:

    How many more photos of some bimbo wearing his glasses do we need?

    PS, even Miley’s tongue is fug.

  10. Angie says:

    I can’t be the only one who thinks she has such a pretty face can I? She’s pretty.

    • megs283 says:

      No, I agree – I think she’s on the line between a cute young woman and beautiful adult.

      Shame that her opinions are so painful to hear (and antics are so painful to watch)!

    • gg says:

      I think she’s pretty gorgeous – great body (but needs to eat and exercise for some muscle, ffs), very pretty face – but she acts disgusting so I don’t think she’s pretty.

      And she ain’t doin her bowling-ball head and jug ears any favors by exposing them in that hideous excuse for a haircut.

    • Hakura says:

      @Angie – No, she has a beautiful face. But lately, with all the less-than-pretty facial expressions she’s been putting on it, between sticking her tongue out & running around naked, it’s made it hard to focus on how pretty her face really is.

    • Kristin says:

      Sorry, but I think you might be in the minority on this one. She’s not ugly, but she’s not pretty either. At best, she’s “cute’. She has ZERO sex appeal and honest to god the ugliest mouth I’ve laid eyes on.

  11. AliceInPains says:

    Put a fork in her. She could wear it around and proclaim to the mags that it has now been reclaimed as a symbol of rebirth and new beginnings for all those lofty enough to be thought a has-been by the general public. We just DON’T GET IT.

    The rest of us can giggle at the irony.

  12. BreeinSEA says:

    I’m sorry to be a snarky biznatch but I can’t stand her eyebrows, her nose or her mouth (lips, teeth and tonguw included). I read these delusions and its amazing anyone can feel so seriously about what she’s talking about. Its embarassing.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Seriously? I think her brows are beautiful–maybe her best facial feature. Eyes–also quite pretty. Nose & lips–nothing to write home about, but at least they’re real, unlike 98% of the noses and lips in HW. Her tongue? Gross, needs scraping and put back in her mouth. Body? Perfect, absolutely lovely, and all real…wonder how long it’ll be before all the snarky sh*t about her “flat” ass causes her to go Kardashian on it. I hope not.

      But okay, beyond the girl’s physical attributes, what does she have? Voice: raspy and cool. Style sense is–don’t give a sh*t what everyone says, I find it superbly edgy and coolly referential with its sense of haute history.

      Her ideas about what it means to be a woman? Totally fucked up. That’s all I got.

    • Hakura says:

      @BreeinSEA – I’ve never paid much attention to her eyebrows, really. But because model Cara Delivigne is everywhere this season, all the models I see in those ‘haute-high-fashion’ magazines have big thick, super dark eyebrows. I don’t care for it, but I prefer it to the pencil-thin brows that were in a little while back.

      I think her big eyes are her best feature, & actually like her lips. I think the red lipstick is actually flattering on her.

      @LahdidahBaby – She doesn’t strike me as someone who will go for plastic surgery (at least not for a while, or anything major). She said in her RS interview that she was quite aware of her ‘flat butt’ people have been bitching about, & that she’s ’108lbs’. I think she looks healthy, but could maybe stand to gain a few pounds.

      • Anon33 says:

        For me it’s not that she isn’t pretty…it’s that she still looks like a young teen. And Justin bieber.

      • Hakura says:

        @Anon33 – She does still have ‘baby fat’ in her face, but if you look at a picture from just a few years ago, it shows just how much slimming down its done already. I think her features will become more ‘refined’ gradually. I’ve always felt bad for Selena Gomez, due to her having more than ‘average’ baby fat in her face (chipmunk cheeks), even though her face is beautiful in a ‘doll-like’ way.

        It’s really odd, how much she & P—bucket look alike. Even more odd is the fact that she’s sort of become his mentor, giving him advice all the time. (Which is actually *great* advice, but she needs to practice what she preaches).

  13. Christin says:

    As long as her music sells and people talk about her, she’ll continue. I can’t see this lasting very long before it all derails. She has too many yes people around her, with her parents leading the line.

    And, Liam appeared to have checked out of the relationship many months ago. Funny how she seems to want to change the script on so many things.

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      Yes, she has completely forgotten about this quote from only 5 MONTHS ago!

      “A star is someone who doesn’t have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power. Sex does sell, but you have to find a way that’s not just showing your tits. I don’t want to be a glorified model. They just walk onstage and it’s all about their clothes—or lack of clothes.”
 (to Rolling Stone)

      I guess you’re not a star then hey? HYPOCRITE is more like it.

      • Hakura says:

        @ZigZagZoey – Oh wow. I hadn’t read that quote before. It’d be incredibly interesting to see how she reacted now, if confronted with it.

      • skyler10 says:

        She said that? And now she’s got her camel toe hanging out for all to see…along with her coated tongue.

  14. Londerland says:

    “…he’s about capturing strength versus beauty.”

    Yes he is, but it’s his strength, pitted against the beauty of young, vulnerable women.

    His strength as a powerful and in-demand photographer with the power to subtly (and not so subtly) compel powerless models to act out his sexual fantasies, for fear of displeasing the editors who hired them, the agencies who rep them.

    “She wouldn’t co-operate, don’t send her again.” Boom, bye-bye, plenty more where you came from, honey, so why don’t you take your clothes off? I’ll do it first. See, I’ve taken my pants down too – don’t you feel safer now? It’s not sleazy at all, see? Hey, you know what would look great in the picture is if you pretend you’re blowing me. You’re going to be a star.

    Trust me, I’m an artist.

    • mia girl says:

      Totally agree

    • Hakura says:

      @Londerland – *Shudder* I read the recounts of a few models on that story on Jezebel a little while back. It was play by play exactly as you described, so I suspect you probably read it too. He is a horrible, disgusting human being, who’s only ever completely exploited the power of his position in the industry.

      So many times with underage models, I don’t understand how the industry is not only patting him on the back, but making him Hollywood’s ‘biggest photographer’, with all the ‘biggest celebs’ going to him. It just… How can they support this gross bastard?

      • Londerland says:

        @Hakura – not sure if I read it on Jezebel specifically, but yes, definitely referencing the real reports about his behaviour and what models have said they’d gone through with him. The details are just stomach-turning. Every time I see a big star’s been photographed by him, I just wonder, do they not know his history? Or do they just not care that he only has a career because he treats vulnerable girls like crap?

        A lot of people are skeeved out by his imagery but don’t know that the reality is even sleazier. If he were producing these pictures with fully-consenting girls who weren’t in any way coerced, then they’d just be bad photographs. As it is, half the time we’re looking at a record of actual coercion.

        Of course, now it’s easy for him to point to his powerful muses – Gaga, LiLo, Miley – who will attest to his respectful attitudes, his artistry, “he was never like that with me”. Well, of course he’s respectful to you – you’re richer than him and surrounded by minders, he wouldn’t dare pull the same crap as he would with a sixteen-year-old who speaks limited English and whose family and support network is a twelve-hour flight away. And he doesn’t have to coerce Miley or Gaga anyway, they’ve got their top off, their back arched and their tongue out before he’s taken the lens cap off, because what was abuse to the unknown model is edgy and empowering to them…

        Sorry, I appear to have gone on a bit of a rant. 😄 tl;dr version – he’s a creep and I lose all respect for anyone who supports him.

      • Hakura says:

        @Londerland – Absolutely *No* reason to apologize, I whole-heartedly agree w/you. I can get really ‘worked up’ over this type of BS just as quick.

        If anyone should understand (the fact that what goes on out in the open, & what goes on behind closed doors can be vastly different if not complete opposite), it would be celebrities (& politicians xD). I feel like its an ‘ignorance is bliss’ scenario, as far as the celebs working w/him. Their management sets things up, & a lot of then probably don’t question it or bother w/his reputation. It’s disgusting & irresponsible.

    • Migsy says:

      Yup. The strength is in the beauty of the people he’s photographing, and in the fact they have vaginas, and Richardson ritually debases them because that strength and beauty makes him feel weak and emasculated, like most males feel in the presence of beauty and vagina. Ten to one this creeper had an abusive childhood and masturbated like a mechanical jackrabbit on fire.

      My guess would be, to his mother or a younger sister, and then he branched off to the young daughters and sisters of family friends, and #offwego, career.

    • Mia says:

      Yep. That’s exactly how he does it. It’s repulsive and unethical behavior and it’s probably illegal when he works with underaged girls. How in the hell does anyone trust his perverted, predatory ass around teen aged girls?

  15. Petee says:

    Music is stale right now at least she has that correct and she is apart of that.Excuse me Miley you great artist,you,music has been dead and stale for about the last 13 years.

    • Trillion says:

      Music is stale? She doesn’t know wtf is going on then. There are so many amazing musicians right now. She just doesn’t know about them because she’s not about music. She’s caught up in image.

      • Kristin says:

        Thank you. This trick wouldn’t know real music if it slapped her straight in her stupid, repulsive tongue.

      • orion70 says:

        I completely agree. Pop music is stale, maybe, but anyone saying music in general is stale or “not as good as in my day” type stuff, is most definitely NOT looking in the right places or has their ears open. As far as I’m concerned, there is an abundance of talent out there. That half the people out there might not be listening to if they’re only paying attention to this one.

        Comments like that are the same reason why I got really annoyed when everyone was calling Gaga a groundbreaking electronic musician. Please.

  16. CaribbeanLaura says:

    LOL…My BFF is convinced that this whole Miley thing is a sign of the impending apocolypse.

    “And she rode in on a white Chanel horse, tongue outstreched and held in the throes of seizures. Her name was Miley, and all despaired. ”


  17. lylaooo says:

    please God!!! stop this madness!!

  18. Jayna says:

    Oh, Miley, you sound like a self-important, delusional young twit. I guess narcissism is a trait all female popstars must have, and yours is developing nicely. I’m sure you will take that as a compliment, dense as you are. Just shut up and give me a great pop record with more songs as good as Wrecking Ball. Thank you.

  19. Liza Jane says:

    Firstly, Terry makes women/ girls look like sluts…without exception! An old man’s fantasy woman, he has somehow pulled the wool over their eyes and convinced them he photographs art! The fact that he posed Lindsay Lohan in that way constantly should have sent others racing for the hills!
    Secondly although Miley is quite striking looking in this re- incarnation as the edgy bad child, nothing disguises her commonness, her lack of intelligence or her complete self absorption! I hear her words in that awful grating voice and it over- rides anything she says!
    She is alarmingly narcissistic and like a lot of girls her age feels she is in charge and knows it all! Her dismissal of those who were offended by her actions just shows her sense of entitlement! Bad upbringing, far too much leeway with her money, allowed to do and say anything she wants( probably because she has had no checks and balances from people who depend on her money and patronage)
    I think the previous poster was right in that she has to resort to being in the news for her ‘style’ now and try to make everyone gasp at her ‘naughty image’ because certainly she has lost her major fan base of 10 year olds who’s parents are now aghast at her behaviour!
    I cannot even say I feel sorry for her when the inevitable crash and burn happens, it feels quite deserved.

  20. MavenTheFirst says:

    ‘Shocking is what I’m good at’?

    It’s a special talent is it? Like the sex tape I see in her future?

    Shocking is Caligula. Her ‘shocking’ is puerile and banal at best.

  21. bns says:

    She is so delusional about her career and it’s sad. She is not innovative or creative or interesting or any of the things she thinks she is.

    In a year no one will care about her.

  22. iheartjacksparrow says:

    How old is the black and white photo? Because I thought she promised no more tongue pix.

  23. bijlee says:

    This girl is rehearsed and manufactured as they come. Snooze. Dear god she truly is just dumb. Go to college, read, SOMETHING! And get the eff away from Richardson!

  24. Madriani's Girl says:

    Am I the only one who is sick of people using OCD as an excuse for being an a$$hole? It’s like become the “in” thing – to declare you have it even when you don’t. It’s like gluten. People declaring they’re gluten-free when there’s nothing wrong with them but because it’s what “everyone” is going, they decide they need to do it, too. Ugh.

    • Lisa says:

      Well, I don’t think they’re exactly on the same level, but yeah. The way people with OCD talk about it is nothing like the way Miley uses it. She’s too dumb for words.

    • Londerland says:

      Oh god, so much this. If one more person tells me they’re gluten-intolerant because “I’ve lost so much weight since I stopped eating bread, it must be the gluten”… No, it’s because you were living off toast and now you’ve switched to salad, you idiot.

      Another big one for me is people saying they’re “a little bipolar” or “I suffer from depression” with no actual medical diagnosis. Just people who are a bit moody, trying to give themselves an out for their crappy treatment of other people. Really? When were you diagnosed? “I haven’t been to the doctor actually but I just know.” Oh, right. I had no idea you had a medical degree. “Well, I don’t, but…” Really? Have you considered that you might not be suffering from mental illness at all, and that you may just be an insufferable person using a serious illness as an excuse for why you don’t have to take responsibility for the crappy way you treat people and why everyone else just should tread on eggshells around you?

      FFS. I think I’ll diagnose myself with something. Diabetes maybe. The kind where you need more sugar and occasionally need a Snickers. There’s such a thing, isn’t there? I know I get tetchy if I don’t have cake regularly. That must be a medical condition. It’s not just that I’m a pig…

      (Sorry, I really did wake up in a snit today!!) 😄

      • Green is Good says:

        Ha ha ha! Best rant today!

      • Hakura says:

        @Londerland – I totally understand where you’re coming from. For example… I was diagnosed officially, about a year ago, with severe depression (although non-violent toward myself w/no self harming or suicidal thoughts). It was deemed severe based on the length of time spent hardly able to convince myself to just get out of bed). Experiencing struggling every day, even on meds,

        I can totally empathize w/your feelings on this. It’s beyond frustrating when someone claims to have something legitimately difficult to deal w/every day, when they not only don’t have it, but don’t have the slightest idea what it’s like to have it.

        Not to mention, while I know there are varying degrees of severity w/OCD behavior, & don’t know Miley personally, so have tried not to judge *shrugs*

    “Terry Richardson shot my video for ‘Wrecking Ball’ and he’s about capturing strength versus beauty. His women look so strong in his images.”

    Yeah, because pictures of Lindsay Lohan with a cig hanging out of her mouth and her udders hanging out of her shirt shows how “strong” she is. Strong women know who they are and wouldn’t be caught dead in pics like the ones this pedophile freak shoots. They don’t need to prove anything to anyone.

      Whenever this kid snaps back into reality, she’s going to have a lot of regrets. I could be wrong, but it really comes off as if she sacrificed her relationship with her boyfriend because she’s willing to do absolutely anything for the sake of fame.

      Terry Richardson makes women look empowered? She’s got a pretty mixed up idea of what empowered is. He single handedly made Kate Upton look both stupid and slutty with that cat daddy video, with her breasts jumping all over the place in a tiny bathing suit. He’s extremely creepy.

    Terry Richardson makes women look like ashtrays.

  27. Anthea says:

    She’s behaving and talking exactly like someone who’s just started using recreational drugs recently and is very, very excited by everything.

    • Amanduh says:

      …seriously. She looked high as f#*k in that pic at the VMA’s…her pupils were the size if dinner plates and don’t even get me started on that white tongue.

      • Anthea says:

        Yep, I worked in a nightclub for years and the way she was dancing was exactly like someone who had just come up.

  28. grabbyhands says:

    This remark, almost more than anything else, illustrates what a moron she is.

  29. Em says:

    Miley didn’t shock. She confused me it was odd not interesting. Miley’s whole act is false and forgettable.

  30. mammaofwooks says:

    shes a boring country bumpkin dressed up in a hodgepodge of styles , the only reason she can wear anyof these styles right now is due to her looking like a walking mannequin . No shape, nothing to get inthe way . It is easier for model sized women to wear a bigger variety of clothes and pull it off . But, her face and no boobage are going to get old real fast for the general public . She is being formulaic about the public but doesnt count the backlash factor into her sucess . we love to love and hate . I don’t care about weight but Miley knew what she was doing as far as her public image . I think she is an averagely talented singer who had connections . I dont undestand why she insists that she is street , she grew up as a Disney character ! What does she know about anything except putting out formulaic success ?

  31. Maggie says:

    She’s young so give her a break! And I have to go against the grain on here. I don’t know T.Richardson personally so I dont get the hate for him but his photos are fabulous. Talented guy.

  32. Savanna says:

    The photoshop on her right boob in that second picture is hysterical.

  33. Nicole says:

    Based on previous pictures, ie Leim’s bday party, etc, I think she’s been this way the whole time, just closed behind a door by her manager (or whomever it was that she fired). I also think she has some severe mental health issues. She strikes me as very needy, with low self esteem.

  34. Hakura says:

    Re: “Uncle Terry” - He makes women look WEAK, like porn objects bent over, waiting for some guy to use them however he wants. That does NOT translate to looking ‘strong‘ & ‘in control‘. More like something to be ‘used & discarded‘.

    I’m not saying being in a submissive role (or appearing that way in a photoshoot) is WRONG, but it’s the OPPOSITE of what she’s trying to say it is. & ‘Uncle Terry’ always makes women look like they’re just sex objects. ALWAYS. It frustrates me how blind she is to this, & explains a lot about her recent actions & roles in videos (like the new ’23′ monstrosity). Shaking her ass, gyrating & doing things with her mouth are NOT the only things she’s good for. But it really seems like she might, somewhere deep inside, be convinced that it is.

    I’m not directly blaming her relationship with Liam, or using it as an excuse for any of her ‘over-sexed’ actions. But I thought she got into a relationship with him WAY too young. A 15yr old with a 19yr old? She probably felt pressure to become a ‘sexy woman‘ all at once, to make him happy…Then became part of an industry that exaggerates normal sexual behavior, & got swept up in it.

    I’m all for women being sexually liberated, expressing themselves regardless of their sexual preferences/positions/roles, but her view is definitely distorted.

    • Ennie says:

      I remember when miley was living with her former boyfriend justin gaston(had to google his name), before yhan with Liam. Aroung 2008 up to 2009, he was older, probably 20 or 21 yrs old.
      They were together for about a year, and yes, he was living with her and obviously her family let her call the shots, maybe because it is her who makes the most money.

      • Hakura says:

        @Ennie – So she was 16, dating a 20-21 year old… That’s just wrong, to me. You’re just a *kid* at 16, don’t really know who you are yet, probably (in most cases) don’t have (or have much of) a sexual history… You’re just in such different places. At 20, you may still be young, but you’re definitely an adult. Her family really did just let her do whatever she wanted, probably like you say, bc she was bringing in he biggest paycheck.

    • Hakura says:

      Ugh, I have to correct myself, in regards to her age when she started dating Liam. I don’t know *who* told me she was 15 & he was 19, but I just realized that is isn’t right. She was *17* & he was *19*. So that aspect of my post was completely wrong, sorry everyone!!

  35. Leila in Wunderland says:

    I actually like these pictures. I’ve disliked almost every photoshoot she has done this year.

    All this interview really proves about Miley is that she’s immature. I’m a year older than her and, I have to admit, have been called out for similar delusional drama queen attitude/obsession with my ‘style’ and ‘image’, but that was when I was still in high school. She also reminds me of this cool but sometimes tiring girl I went to school with and was sort-of friends with. This girl always had a wild streak, and once we graduated, she just wanted to party. So to me it seems like Miley Cyrus is a 20-year-old with the maturity of a 17-year-old.

    There are definitely worse things that a person can be, but it will be very interesting to watch how her life and career play out. She seems like she could go in just about any direction right now. I have 3 different predictions of how she’ll turn out. One is good, one is neutral, and one is very very bad.

  36. Kizzy says:

    But isn’t the reason she kept going on about her style is because she’s on the cover of Fashion magazine?

  37. Molly says:

    OMFG. I’m not helping by commenting, and I realize that. But I can’t believe we’re still talking about her. She’s absolutely ridiculous and when her meltdown is complete and she’s in a mental institution, I’ll feel sorry for her but I’m going to feel quite a bit of relief. I can’t lie.

  38. serena says:

    For sure she’s delusional. I believe she is talented and has a good voice but is blowing it all dressing and acting that way.
    Also that is not a good ‘style’ to be known for, and being naked in a video won’t make everyone realize how good of a singer you are. Wise up girl.

  39. Migsy says:

    Two words. Ring flash.

  40. Missykittens says:

    I hate how she is going on about her “style”… mixing designer pieces with vintage pieces is not unique, everyone does it. I remember a while ago reading a breakdown of Kate Moss’s style (like, years ago) and she was applauded for doing just that. After that, everybody jumped on the bandwagon. Now Miley is acting like she is original and unique? Bich plzzzzz…
    I actually feel sorry for her… This poor girl is headed for destruction.

    • Nina W says:

      She has no style, she lacks fashion sense altogether and frequently dresses like a pornographic muppet. Sorry Miley but you’re deluding yourself if you think you’re cutting edge or pulling this off. Get a stylist, stat.

  41. Jane says:

    $–t, and I thought Leann Rimes was narcissistic! This entity takes the cake. She is not fashion, she is a total train wreck

  42. Mel says:

    Wow, narcissism at its best. Her “fashion” just looks like a bunch of recycled clothes from the 90′s to me, trashy, stripper, grunge.

  43. wendy says:

    I don’t believe for a minute that her style isn’t the creation of a fashion stylist.

    She needs to get over herself.

    Just because you are on another level doesn’t necessarily mean you are on a level above everyone else.

  44. wendy says:

    Also Brooke Candy is doing what Miley only dreams of.

  45. Luna says:

    As much as I think sometimes she is crazy, she is merely 20 years old. How many of us didn’t do stupid things back then? I mean, wearing trashy and exposing skin here and there thinking we look good? Not defending her but well.. she is just a kid.

  46. homegrrrrl says:

    More important to be stylish than trendy?! She’s a total trendoid:
    90′s fashion
    Uncle Terry
    Asymmetric haircut
    Druggy skinny, no muscle tone

    Nothing original. Giant yawn.

  47. Aud says:

    It’s saddening and frustrating to think that a portion of girls/young women Miley’s age think that looking and acting out like a cheap hooker [even hookers don't behave like that] is tantamount to being strong and assertive. Since when?
    If magazines and blogs stopped writing about Miley we’d be spared the grotesque sideshow act.
    However that’s not the case, unfortunately. Someone always has something to gain by this publicity. Whether it is a magazine, a blog, Miley herself…
    As for readers? What do they have to gain? Seriously?

  48. Mia says:

    What personal style? Doesn’t she mean her stylist Lisa Katnic’s personal style? Her stylist dresses Miley like a carbon copy of herself, down to their ugly and nearly identical haircuts. She didn’t cultivate a goddamn thing about her current unattractive image and “style”. I said it before and I’ll say it again: Miley is a big fat phony. A trying-too-hard, contrived, UNORIGINAL, phony.

  49. Mia says:

    And I can’t believe she has the nerve to think she’s outdressing people on some next level shit! In what? The ugly and ill fitting clothes that her stylist picks out for her?!? Does this trick have eyes? Did she really think her flat ass looked good in those plastic panties at the VMA’s? Or that she looked cute in those ugly white outfits she wore to the iHeartradio concert? Or that nobody’s worn a dress made out of a B-ball jersey before and looked way better then she did doing it? Too bad she’s not listening to any critics because she NEEDS to. All she’s been doing is appropriating ratchet culture and looking like an unimpressive, broke down, bootleg Rihanna. She needs to get her life and shut the fuck up forever.

  50. Jane says:

    The problems with her right now is that she is so ubiquitous, people will be saturated with this mess and want to detox after a while. She simply will not be ignored and wants people to see and hear from her all the time. It’s such a distorted case of narcissism to the core.

  51. Deedee says:

    Yes, Miley, terry Richardson really empowers women. Like the photo of Lindsey Logan pointing a gun to her head while she was at her lowest point.

  52. Irishae says:

    “I’m so adamant and controlling and OCD about my work that I can scare some people….”
