Miley Cyrus on love, life and values

On being a role model:
"I don't put myself up on a pedestal and say l'ook at me I’m an example'. The only thing that I’m an example of is, like, freedom. Especially in this time that the energy of the world is shifting from male energy to female energy."

On re-inventing herself:
"I just had to become this person that’s sitting in this chair right now, if I didn’t I just felt there was something inside of me that was going to explode and … I had to set myself free."

On happiness:
"I think it's important for people to realise that we all have our own lives and we have to live them the way that makes us the happiest."

On values:
"I tell people you know going to the club doesn’t make me a bad person, going to church doesn’t make you a good one."

"If I pass somebody and I feel like I’ve got to help them or I feel connected to with them I can’t help myself I have to."

On drugs:
"I put some picture of me smoking weed … on my Instagram because I was brought up in the way that we never thought marijuana was bad but it’s not like I’m sitting around telling a bunch of kids to do a bunch of drugs "

On breaking up with Liam Hemsworth:
"I think I’m speaking to women and it’s not because I went through a breakup — I love Liam and Liam loves me but it’s about finding yourself and sometimes you have to separate yourself from everyone. "

On Elvis:
"He was like sex. He was a symbol of sex but no one would have ever called Elvis a shit because he wasn't a girl."

On pop culture:
"You know what hurts your brain? Googling yourself. You know what hurts your brain? Instagram. You know what hurts your brain? Reading comments on Facebook. You know what hurts your brain? Reading US Weekly."

On feminism:
"No one wants to admit it that Elvis was 'twerking'… He was a symbol of sex but no one would have ever called Elvis a slut because he wasn’t a girl."
