Miley Cyrus blames father for twerking phase


"I will always be the naked girl on a wrecking ball", she explained. That's when I started doing my whole VMA controversy. "[You know my dad Billy Ray Cyrus is] my dad on the show".

Miley and Katy's friendship started back in 2008 when Katy "came out with 'I Kissed A Girl, '" and Cyrus was still in the middle of doing the Hannah Montana movie. The 24-year-old was given the options of "7 Things", "The Climb" and "Wrecking Ball" and she gave the following answer.

"I'm a little bit of a nervous person even though I try to keep it cool, but I'm actually always kind of freaking out at all times", she confessed to US radio host Elvis Duran.

'I just spent 10 years everyday with my dad and grandma.

Miley also cited Hannah Montana as a direct influence in why she eventually started twerking on Robin Thicke at the MTV VMAs and riding a wrecking ball naked among many shocking public displays.

When Miley visited a morning show to promote her new music recently, radio host Ellen K welcomed the singer to the station by surprising her with some fro yo from Pinkberry. "He just plays his guitar all day long, until midnight, and then he goes and gets double-doubles".

While the former Disney star has retired her pop star alter ego, she is looking forward to Raven-Symone's upcoming That's So Raven reboot, Raven's Home.

"Marry would probably be "The Climb" because it still has a message I'm down with", Miley began. "I was like, 'I'll go with Katy Perry!'". "I had to break free". The jewelry was of course a nod to fiance Liam Hemsworth, whom she wrote the song about.

Miley continued to express her support for those in similar situations who need time to figure out who they are, independent of their partner. "I just wanted to be on TV. I was always a little controversial, from the beginning", Cyrus said.
