London — Miley Cyrus won’t be told what she should wear or what she should sing about.
The 17-year-old is releasing new album, “Can’t Be Tamed,” and is doing it her way, even though some say she is going to too far for her age.
“I’m not trying to be ’slutty,”’ said Cyrus in a recent interview. “I’m not trying to be like, go to the club and get a bunch of guys ... What I’m trying to do is to make a point with my record and look consistent, in the way my record sounds and the way I dress.”
What she wears has been put under the spotlight recently. Some thought the video for “Can’t Be Tamed” was too provocative, and others have criticized her for revealing too much skin in her outfits.
“... I’ve just grown up to be this way,” Cyrus said. “It’s not like this was me five years ago. It’s me now, presently.”
