Whenever I read any quote from Miley Cyrus, it makes me so glad no one kept a record of the stupid stuff I said at 16. And then I sigh and hope it really is just do to the fact that Miley is 16, and eventually she’ll grow out of it. Miley is on the cover of this month’s Elle, and she’s chatting about her clothing line with Max Azria for Walmart. I know, it seems like a strange mix. Anyway, she had a few precious quotes such as “The jeans are my favorite part of the entire line. Because, like literally, this is going to be good for, like, Middle America, and it will be great for kids that really want to be in fashion but don’t have it available.” And the admission that she’d pay $500 for her $20 jeans, which doesn’t tell me much other than she just embarrassed herself.
Miley Cyrus is going to bring high fashion to “Middle America,” the “Hannah Montana” star said in the August issue of Elle magazine.
“Oh my God, I’m so stoked!” she said of her new line with Max Azaria for Wal-Mart. “It’s a lot of peasanty, flowy tops, hippie and loose and sexy, like boho chill mixed with English-rocker-esque. Plaids, studs, rips, cool colors. The jeans are my favorite part of the entire line. Because, like, literally, this is going to good for, like, Middle America, and it will be great for kids that really want to be in fashion but they don’t have it available.”
And the star added that she’d be willing to pay top dollar for the fancy couture.
“I would pay $500 for the jeans that we make for $20,” she said. “I’m really into high fashion.”
If runway style seems like more of an adult interest, it’s because the 16-year-old star is growing up, showing off mature poses in the mag’s photoshoot and talking about her relationship, now over, with 20-year-old model Justin Gaston.

Well I’m sure the Walmart shoppers of middle America are so grateful they can be given some fashion and culture via Miley Cyrus. And all for the low price of $20! I’m not sure that it’s such a wise idea to have Miley doing interviews with more adult magazines. Obviously she’s trying to transition from the tween/teen market and be seen as more mature, but the problem is – she isn’t mature yet. Some 16 year olds are practically adults while others are still kids. Miley seems very much to fall into the latter category, and there’s nothing wrong with that. There also isn’t any big advantage to growing up before you have to.
I’m sure going with more mature magazines is partially a business decision, but I think it’s ultimately hurting more than helping. Miley’s responses make her come off as naive and stupid, when really she’s just a kid who’s chatting away. She should be doing more “Seventeen” and less “Elle” and “Vanity Fair.”
