‘Rolling Stone’ x Miley Cyrus Baring All…Again, Speaks On Her Relationship With Kanye, Pharrell & Lil Kim
Nowadays it seems that Miley Cyrus and clothes don’t get along, after her nude debut for her “Wrecking Ball” music video, a newly released Bangerz album cover, and even more recently on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone.
In John Eels’ cover story, Miley talks about her controversial VMA performance, along with the advice she received from Kanye West just moments before going on stage:
Kanye West had seen her rehearsals and wanted to talk to her before she went onstage. “He came in and goes, ‘There are not a lot of artists I believe in more than you right now,’ she recalls. “The whole room went quiet. I was like, ‘Yo – can you say that again?!’ She laughs. “I just kept repeating that over and over in my mind, and it made me not nervous.”
Later in the article Miley describes she and Kanye as having a good relationship, and confirms that they have begun recording a remix of “Black Skinhead” together.
Miley also talks about her relationship with Pharrell and the texts she received from both he and Lil Kim regarding her performance:
On the way back to L.A., Miley’s phone buzzes. “This is why I love Pharrell so much,” she says, then reads a text that he sent her out loud. It’s at least 1,000 characters long; she scrolls forever. “The VMAs was nothing more than God or the Universe showing you how powerful anything you do is,” he says at one point. “It’s like uranium – it has the power to take over lives or power entire countries. Now that you’ve seen your power, master it. You’re not a train wreck. You’re the train pulling everyone else along”
She checks her phone and reads a text from Lil’ Kim out loud: “My little pumpkin, I just had to tell you you’re so fucking smart. I love you and all the press you are getting. Sad I didn’t run into you at the VMAs. Keep killing it, boo.” Miley laughs. “My little pumpkin!”
In other news, as Miley has been slowly transitioning into the Hip-Hop game, collaborating with the likes of Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J, she rocked a pair of custom Jordan 3s in the new music video for “23“. Alongside her rumored romance with Mike WiLL, we are anxious to see what she’ll be doing next.
