Not only does Miley Cyrus dare to bare nipples in the March issue of W, but she dares to compare herself to musicians including Madonna, Blondie and Joan Jett.
In an interview conducted by Frank Sinatra's son Woody Allen's son Ronan Farrow, Cyrus began by defending her personal fashion choices, which have thus far included unitards, foam fingers and imaginary rat-tails. "I just don't get what half the girls are wearing," she said. "Everyone to me seems like Vanna White. I'm trying to tell girls, like, 'F*** that. You don't have to wear makeup. You don't have to have long blonde hair and big t******. That's not what it's about. It's, like, personal style.' I like that I'm associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock s*** where we just don't care."
Who equates Cyrus with punk rock is anybody's guess, aside perhaps from Miley, who then put herself in the company of the world's highest paid musician and two punk pioneers.
"Like Madonna or Blondie or Joan Jett — Jett's the one that I still get a little shaky around. She did what I did in such a crazier way. I mean, girls then weren't supposed to wear leather pants and, like, f****** rock out. And she did." (For the record, Blondie's Debbie Harry used to rock out with no pants, Miley. Look it up if you don't believe us.)
W's interview also included a photo spread where Miley, as usual, was wearing very little aside from some sheets and bleached eyebrows. Head over to E! Online for the (mostly) SFW versions.
