“People see me as this perfect Disney star, and the moment I put out a record that says ‘I’m not 11 years old anymore,’ people look down on me,” Cyrus said. “That’s why I have always looked up [to] you. When you came out people were shocked that there was a chick that wanted to rock as hard as the guys.”
Jett, in turn, expressed her admiration for the former Disney star, who has it much harder with the press than she did.
“I was thinking to myself … how difficult it must be to lead your life as a teenager with the paparazzi and the amount of press you’re surrounded by,” she told Cyrus. “I thought to myself, ‘Wow that was kind of a blessing that we didn’t have that stuff when I was growing up in The Runaways.’ ”
Said Cyrus: “I love that you never apologized for who you were. It’s something I had to learn. … I’m sick of feeling as if I owe someone an apology for being who I am.”
I’m stuck between two feelings on this little excerpt, and one’s a whole lot more traumatizing than the other. Because I can definitely see how these two could get along or have some sort of mutual appreciation. But guys, this handful of quotes? It’s given me a lot more respect for Miley. And respect for Miley Cyrus is just not something that I know how to deal with.
