Quotes by and about Miley Cyrus

(Continued from her main entry on the site.)

Cyrus: "I don't understand how most pop stars live this life being told what to do, what to wear, all the time."

Cyrus: "I sit with a lot of old people that try to get me to explain culture. I'm like, 'I don't know how - you're just not living in the same world I'm living in.'"

Cyrus: "I have a lot of energy."

Cyrus: "You can ask me anything, I'll never be offended."

Cyrus: "My family's always been really open for me to be whoever I want to be. I think that's a freedom that everyone should have. Everyone should have freedom to say, I am being true to myself in every moment that I'm breathing. That's what I think of that I can relay by just saying, be free to be who you want to be. And I think you kind of have to rule by example, and I hope that my fans see that - but also anyone that we're fighting for - I really want them to see that I'm not just saying that. I really believe that that's what life is. Life is to be happy."

Cyrus: "My life won't be a series of either/ors - musician or actor, rock or country, straitlaced or rebellious, this or that, yes or no. The real choices in life aren't that simple."

Cyrus: "I don't think of [being on stage] as work. It's just so much fun."

Cyrus: "Pink isn't just a color, it's an attitude!"

Cyrus: "I'm not afraid to be embarrassed."

Cyrus: "Life is all about having a good time."

Cyrus: "What I always say is: [Try] to have more positivity and just to kind of laugh [things] off."

Cyrus: "In all of our lives, all of us will experience people who try to tell us who to be and what to be. Fuck those people! Instead of changing for other people, if you don't like how the world is, change it yourself."

Cyrus: "A lot of people like a year or two ago, when I started this transition in my life, encouraged me to be very free. But when I started to free myself, they very quickly wanted to put me back in my cage again. They were like, "Okay, well, fly - but don't fly too far; don't get too high."

Cyrus: "I'm the voice of my generation. I think that I'm allowing girls to be really free with their sexuality. When I was [on tour] in Vancouver and in Washington, it almost made me feel like I was the Beatles. Girls were throwing bras and underwear at me, and, like, totally turned out. And it's funny because some people act like I'm pushing my fans away by what I do, but ... When I do things that would get someone old to shake their head, my fans go ape shit. Like when we bend over or take our shirts off, we're giving them that freedom. And that's what rock 'n' roll always was. Like, people snuck out to go see Joan Jett, and their mothers would be pissed."

Joan Jett: "I think [what Miley is doing is] absolutely valid. ... She's being bold about it, and I admire that sort of bravery."

Elle Magazine: "She is more self-possessed than skeptics think she is, but maybe not as self-possessed as she thinks she is."
