Miley Cyrus’ New York Times Profile: Obnoxious Ariana Grande Comments, Canceled Vogue Cover, Joe Jonas + More
Miley Cyrus thinks super highly of herself and the singer proved it in her hubris-filled New York Times profile.
She insulted Ariana Grande in a roundabout way, using her comments as a way to make herself look like a rebel. We love Miley bunches, but she doesn’t come off well in this interview.
She intimated there was indeed a Vogue cover that was yanked because she was too cool to curtail her VMAs act for the fashion bible’s editor Anna Wintour; she also discussed race relations and Joe Jonas‘ somewhat illuminating post-Disney essay, saying she and Demi Lovato pressured him to smoke weed. Her response to the latter was comical.
Now, here are five incredible takeaways from Miss Cyrus’ interview.
She thinks she is the cure for Ariana Grande’s saccharine sweetness: Cyrus said that celebs won’t pose for pics with her, due to the guilt by association concept. She said, “I don’t have a bunch of celeb friends, because I feel like some of them are a little scared of the association. This is terrible. I was backstage with Ariana Grande. I’m like, ‘Walk out with me right now and get this picture, and this will be the best thing that happens to you, because just you associating with me makes you a little less sweet.’” Wow, a pic with Miley does all that? And who is to say that Grande, whose entire presentation is wholesome and authentic, wants to sour it up, so to speak?
Sixth graders have proms? Cyrus addressed Grande’s girly style, saying that Grande commented that a shorter frock she wore made her feel like Cyrus, who replied, ‘That was like my sixth grade prom dress.’ Um, six graders have proms? When did that become a thing? That’s usually a high school aged dance. Cyrus did say she gets that Grande, who is signed to Nickelodeon, has others to answer to.
That lost Vogue cover: Cyrus reportedly lost the December 2013 cover of Vogue after editress Wintour was mortified by the tongue-and-twerk VMAs spectacle. “I can’t say too much. But it was where I was kind of going to have to do this trade-off, and I wasn’t willing to,” Cyrus said. #Rebel.
She sees the lines between races being blurred, an unintentional reference to her VMAs co-collaborator Robin Thicke: She thinks that people won’t think about race in the next generation. “So, you know, I look forward to when I’m older, my kids being like, ‘What do you mean people never even talked about what color your dancers were?,’” she said.
She thinks J. Jonas blaming her and D. Lovato for exposing him to pot smoking was weak sauce: We can’t argue there. She said, “If you want to smoke weed, you’re going to smoke weed. There’s nothing that two little girls are going to get you to do that you don’t want to do. I thought maybe he was saying that like it was going to make him look badass.” Game, set and match to Miley there.
