Miley Cyrus Addresses Criticism in MTV Documentary “Movement”
Miley Cyrus is anything but coy, so it should come as little surprise that the controversial former child star lifts the lid on her wild life and addresses the easily outraged in Miley: The Movement, a new MTV documentary inspired by Cyrus.
During the documentary, which premieres this Wednesday (10 p.m. ET), Miley offers viewers a glimpse into her attempt to redefine her career and image following the end of her Disney show Hannah Montana. It’s all leading up to the release of her fourth studio album, Bangerz, debuting Oct. 8.
For now, it’s all about living without regrets, the 20-year-old says.
“Right now I’m at a point in my career where I can just be exactly who I want to be. I can just have fun and not think about any kind of repercussion and just go for what you want to do. That causes a lot of reaction, but I think there’s something about watching people grow up.”
Miley also addresses the backlash surrounding her globally polarizing performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. More than a month later, Miley still doesn’t get what all the fuss is about. Twerking Robin Thicke in the presence of a perverted Furby? Big deal!
“I don’t pay attention to the negative because how many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna’s done it, Britney has done it, anyone that’s performed on the VMAs, you know? You’re always going to make people talk. You might as well make them talk for like two weeks rather than two seconds. I’ve been laughing about all the news because everyone else is so serious.”
