She’s never one to shy away from controversy and Miley Cyrus lives up to her reputation in her upcoming interview with Chris Bath on Sunday Night.
The acclaimed Australian journalist sat down with the 21-year-old for a one-on-one for the Channel Seven current affairs program, and the Wrecking Ball singer doesn’t hold anything back.
Talking about her famous shift from child star to raunchy celebrity, Cyrus calls out Hollywood’s ‘double standard’ when it comes to her famous dance move.
‘Elvis, he wasn’t wearing the outfits I was wearing but he was coming out and he was doing like the OG twerking,’ she tells Bath.
The interview is set to air on Channel Seven on Sunday at 8.45pm.
‘Like, no one wants to admit that he was twerking, he was.
‘He was like sex. He was a symbol of sex but no one would have ever called Elvis a sl** because he wasn’t a girl.
‘It’s that double standard and I think I’m doing something for the double standard.’
The interview, which airs on Sunday, then gets into Cyrus’ risky fashion choices – something fans will get to see plenty of when she arrives for her Australian tour in October.
‘That’s just what I like to wear,’ said the former Hannah Montana star.
‘I never think about what someone is going to think. I’ve always been into fashion.
‘I grew up around Dolly Parton who is all… tits.
‘This dress is right out of her kind of book, I just don’t fill it the way she does.’

Pharrell Williams spends most of his time behind the camera, gawking at models as they shimmy, gyrate and pantomime riding a motorcycle to the singer’s funky second Girl single, “Come Get It Bae.” But what keeps the video from being an homage to George Michael’s “Too Funky” clip in 1992, when he leered at models through a camera lens, is Miley Cyrus’ appearance midway through. That’s when Williams steps out from behind the camera and joins his scantily clad guest – who is apparently on an overly caffeinated sugar high, judging from the amount of white powder she pours in her smiley-face cup – for some synchronized choreography to the song’s bridge and mean mugging in the end.
One of Williams’ songs and videos recently got its own homage when “Weird Al” Yankovic turned the singer’s inescapable 2013 hit “Happy” into a celebration of all things gauche on the Mandatory Fun track “Tacky.” While the parody points out any number of poor-taste behaviors, the video mirrors Williams’ 24-hour star-studded affair replacing the original’s celebrities (Steve Carell, Magic Johnson, Tyler, the Creator) with, well, weirder celebrities like Jack Black, Margaret Cho and Kristen Schaal.
But that hasn’t stopped Williams or his friends, who recently appeared as a guest on a horn-laden, dancey song, “She Came to Give It to You,” for Usher. That song, which also features Nicki Minaj, will likely appear on Usher’s upcoming eighth record.
Miley Cyrus has made no secret of her obsession with the Flaming Lips: She’s invited the band onstage several times, recorded with them and even made a playlist of her favorite Lips tracks for Rolling Stone. “Once you listen to the them, it’s hard to listen to anything else,” she told us.
She’s such a big fan, in fact, that Cyrus recently filmed a video on her sick bed with them (she was hospitalized earlier this year for an allergic reaction to an antibiotic) for a trippy clip that frontman Wayne Coyne is calling “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain.” “This is the video we originally intended to be for a song that has a reference to the drug LSD,” says Coyne. “We were lucky enough to get a couple of hours with a bedridden Miley Cyrus. And even though she was still quite ill, she was full of laughs and great absurd suggestions.” The band also recruited Moby, who Coyne says “created an enduring, freaky character” at the musician’s Hollywood home.
Coyne explains the concept of the video:
“The video story is something like this: Moby is an evil, power-hungry cult leader. He wants the world’s most valuable (according to our story) psychedelic supernatural possession… John F. Kennedy’s brain….the brain contains the original formula for the drug LSD!!!
Miley Cyrus has the magic brain!!! And Moby enlists a nympho Manson girl-type blonde superfreak to go steel the brain from Cyrus.
She steals the brain from Cyrus while Cyrus is still in bed in a drug-induced coma. Cyrus finally wakes up and is mega-pissed that her BRAIN has been stolen. She enlists a burned-faced Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot ( that are hovering in a nearby spaceship) to hunt down the blond superfreak that stole her brain. They have a relentless pursuit, all the while Cyrus laments the loss of her magic brain and Moby gains powerful rainbows from hell. In the end, the blond superfreak kills Santa and Bigfoot and a baby mole ends up with the brain…”
Oh yeah. And the Flaming Lips are disguised as rainbows, mushrooms and flowers watching from the sky room where a giant diamond explosion happens.”
An unreleased song by Miley Cyrus unexpectedly hit the web in full on Friday, June 6. Titled “Last Goodbye”, it is an emotional ballad that failed to make the cut to the former Disney star’s latest album “Bangerz”.
In the break-up anthem, Cyrus talks about a dying relationship. “We never said that we would be perfect/ We only said that we tried/ And when you said that we were forever/ I guess that’s just another lie,” she sings.
A snippet for “Last Goodbye” leaked last year. Fans then speculated that the song was about the 21-year-old entertainer’s then-fiance, Liam Hemsworth. However, a source close to Cyrus told HollywoodLife that it’s actually about the singer’s late dog. “It isn’t about Liam, it’s actually something that came to her after her dog died and formed into this song,” explained the source.
“Last Goodbye” is the second Cyrus song that leaked in the past few days. Previously, the demo version of a party jam called “Pretty Girls (Fun)” landed online. The song, which is also a “Bangerz” leftover, was produced by Mike WiLL Made It.
