Showbiz Spy reports:
The singer and actress admits she isn’t fond of her old records.
“Right now, when people go to iTunes and listen to my old music, it’s so irritating to me because I can’t just erase that stuff and start over. My last record [2009's EDM-inflected Can't Be Tamed] I feel so disconnected from-I was 16 or 17 when I made it. When you’re in your 20s, you just don’t really know that person anymore. I want to start as a new artist. I consider my upcoming album my first, really.”
Miley then talked about her new song, We Can’t Stop.
“I didn’t make this song for the critics, but for the people living it,” she said.
“I’m 20 years old and I want to talk to the people that are up all night with their friends. It’s based on a true story of a crazy night I had: When I heard the song for the first time, it captured exactly what I was living.
“A lot of people wanted to try to make me the white Nicki Minaj. That’s not what I’m trying to do. I love ‘hood’ music, but my talent is as a singer. We were inspired by OneRepublic, and the way Timbaland used to do those big ballads.”
