Miley Cyrus flew into London to promote We Can’t Stop and make an appearance on Nick Grimshaw’s radio show on Thursday (July 18). Miley – who just received three VMA nominations – wore a Balenciaga tee and mini for the interview.
The pair posed together in Nick’s Instagram booth. The Radio 1 Breakfast Show host tweeted: “WE LIKE TO PARTY here’s @MileyCyrus and @grimmers looking sharp in the Instagram booth.”
The 20-year-old has been defending herself against critics who think her We Can’t Stop video is inappropriate and weird.
Hollywoodlife.com reports she told the Toronto Sun, “People are watching like, ‘Cute cat plays with yarn,’ for three hours a lot more than they’re watching anyone else’s music video. And it’s because it makes them happy, it makes them laugh, whatever, So I wanted my video to make people laugh ‘cause I’m the first one to make jokes at myself. My godmother is Dolly Parton who is constantly making fun of herself. She’s like, ‘It takes a lot of money to look this cheap, honey.’ … I wanted the video to be that kind of confident.”
On her haircut – she says it’s the best thing that could have happened to her.
“No one would have planned a haircut to change my life. I didn’t plan a haircut to change my life. I just cut my hair and then it really changed my life. There’s something about having no hair that it screams being confident. And I think especially because people like to put people in a box, I mean the names I’ve been called since I cut my hair. Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look like I’m a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse.’
She continued, “I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me. People think short hair, they think tom boy – and I’ve obviously done the opposite ‘cause when I cut my hair, I did my first Maxim cover where I got number 1. And it wasn’t about me being the sexiest. It was about the fans voting. But it’s something I loved. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Maxim cover with a girl with short hair.”
