Miley Cyrus recently announced that she’s staying away from the country music genre that has defined her all these years.
The actress told Parade magazine last month: “It feels contrived on so many levels.” Her dad Billy Ray Cyrus agreed that she should start ditching the cowboy hats and boots.
She is releasing a new album this summer, and as promised, there will be zero country. “It’s kind of poppier, but then it still has an edge,” the 17-year-old told MTV. “My new record has more of a techno vibe on some stuff.”
It looks like she’s going down the Leighton Meester/ David Guetta collaboration route. That doesn’t sound so bad, seeing that she’s keener on her movie career now. “[After my summer album], I want to take a step back from music for a while,” she explained. “I want to continue to do film. Later in life, another record. But for now, I’d like to focus on movies.”
Do you think Miley is better off as an actress or should she stick to her singing?
