As she gears up to release her latest album She Is Miley Cyrus, Miley Cyrus recently sat down with Elle Magazine for their August 2019 issue, where she sat down to talk about her latest work and the meaning behind her new album name.
“My record is called She Is Miley Cyrus,” Miley said. “‘She’ does not represent a gender. She is not just a woman. ‘She’ doesn’t refer to a vagina. She is a force of nature. She is power. She can be anything you want to be, therefore, she is everything. She is the super she. She is the she-ro. She is the She-E-O.”
Miley also explained that ‘she’ is the most confident version of herself, and “she/woman is taking back the power. She is here, fierce femme energy.”
Miley on how women are the reason for life:
“We’re expected to keep the planet populated. And when that isn’t a part of our plan or our purpose, there is so much judgment and anger that they try to make and change laws to force it upon you—even if you become pregnant in a violent situation. If you don’t want children, people feel sorry for you, like you’re a cold, heartless bitch who’s not capable of love.”
“Why are we trained that love means putting yourself second and those you love first? If you love yourself, then what? You come first.”
On thinking about women’s bodily autonomy:
“I’m such an over-thinker. But at this time of my life, I feel the most powerful I’ve ever felt. I like the way being sexual makes me feel, but I’m never performing for men. They shouldn’t compliment themselves to think that the decisions I’m making in my career would have anything to do with them getting pleasure. I don’t think that because some guy thinks I’m hot he’s going to buy my record. It doesn’t help me.”
On being thought of as a musician:
“I think now I actually have the respect that I want. When I walk into a room, people may think, “Okay, she gets her tits out.”
“But they also think, ‘But she’s got a fucking sick voice,’ and that’s all I care about.”
Miley released her latest EP, She is Coming, this May. The singer has revealed that she plans to release three EPs in total this year, which will all be combined to form the album She is Miley Cyrus.
