Miley Cyrus has been working hard promoting her new single “We Can’t Stop” and putting the final touches on the album due out later this year. According to Page Six of the New York Post on June 14, Cyrus is beyond ready to shed her squeaky clean Disney image and push forward with “moving over to a more urban side.” Cyrus told Billboard that a lot of people are trying to make her the “white Nicki Minaj” and that’s not what it is about. “That’s not what I am trying to do,” Miley says. “I love ‘hood’ music, but my talent is as a singer [sic].”

Miley says she is proud of her country and pop roots, but she wants to have an urban feel with this album. She says her latest release is still pop music. “It’s not a hip-hop album,” Cyrus states.

As for all the backlash on whether “We Can’t Stop” is about drug use, Miley had this to say, “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.”

Miley gave Billboard no words about her relationship with Liam Hemsworth.
