Miley Cyrus is gracing the cover and inside pages of the new August 2009 cover issue of Elle magazine, and inside the teen queen poses in black thigh-high boots and talks about her new clothing line with Max Azria for Wal Mart. She is not a kid anymore, even though she’s underage.
On why she’s not a kid anymore
On the value of style: “I would pay $500 for the jeans that we make for $20. I’m really into high fashion.”
On natural beauty: “I like these crooked. I love my teeth. My dad won’t let me fix my teeth or cut my hair. He loves it. He’s like, ‘It’s you!”
On her new line for Wal Mart: “The jeans are my favorite part of the entire line,” Miley told Elle. “Because, like, literally this is going to be good for, like, Middle America, and it will be great for kids that really want to be in fashion but that don’t have it available.”
She also talks about her friendships (and one-time romance) with Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato.
“It’s hard for all of us. There are so many people that could be using you. So me and Nick and Demi, we don’t need anything from each other. We got our own thing going on.”
On Justin Gaston, her boyfriend at the time of the interview: “We’re together, and then again, we’re not. Some people see us more as friends and don’t get why we work in a relationship. They’re like, ‘It’s weird, best friends shouldn’t date!’ But the person that you eventually spend the rest of your life with – I’m not saying it’s him – why are you going to wake up with someone every day and not want to hang out with them?”
About the glamorous life: “The most fun thing about prom is having that one special night when you dress up and you feel like a princess, and honestly, I get to do that one night a lot.”
