In an interview with Elle magazine published Thursday, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter and actress said she “felt ridiculous” about playing the role of a teenager who lived a secret double life as a famous pop star around the age of 18.
“The minute I had sex, I was kind of llike, I can’t put the f---ing wig on again,” she said. “It got weird. I just felt like … I was grown up.”
While Cyrus said she was done with the role at the time, she is no longer “ashamed” of it, feeling like she had finally earned enough respect as a musician.
“I feel like I’m not ashamed of that anymore. It’s pretty cool when you hear Cardi B was listening to Hannah Montana when she was in high school. That s--- makes me happy.
