Miley Cyrus is speaking out about her new reputation as the “ratchet white girl” and insists that she’s not the girl people think she is. Meanwhile, Miley heated things up as she starred in Big Sean’s video for his new song “Fire.”
Miley has been working hard to get rid of her Hannah Montana reputation and while she has certainly been successful ditching one image, she isn’t exactly pleased with the way people are perceiving her new one.
The 20-year-old singer has been filling up social media and the web with tons of risque pictures, possible drug references and a new party girl attitude, but she doesn’t want people to see it that way.
“People have this misconception of me that I’m just one of these kids on TV and that now I go off and party and I’m just this ratchet white girl, and I’m not,” she said as she posed for a another sexy shoot for Notion Magazine.
According to the former Disney star, she works very hard and that’s the part of her she wants people to see.
“I work really really hard, I’m just in a different environment,” she explained. “I’m young and living and in LA which is everyone’s dream, you know.”
Of course, working hard doesn’t necessarily mean she hasn’t emerged as a party animal. Rihanna works just as hard, if not harder actually, than the young star, but that didn’t stop her from dropping down on all fours to twerk in the street in Barbados.
With the brand new image, the “We Can’t Stop” singer was also considering changing up her name… or at least dropping one.
Miley admitted that at one point she was considering going only by Miley rather than her full name.
“I was thinking about dropping the Cyrus and just being Miley, but there’s something powerful about the fact that my name now is like a household name,” she said.
It’s also a name that has been taking the hip-hop community by storm lately. Everyone from Rick Ross to rap duo Migos have made references in their songs about Miley and Jay Z even dedicated a few bars to the young starlet.
Now she’s starring in Big Sean’s music video for “Fire” where she was supposed to take on the role of a strong woman who is emerging beautifully from an ugly breakup.
“A special video for a special song,” Big Sean tweeted on Friday. “I got Miley Cyrus for this video because she’s somebody who’s had a personal evolution as a lot of us have had.”
He went on to say that he felt that Miley did a “great job as a metaphor for strong women, being a strong person after heartbreak.”
In the video, however, it doesn’t seem like she’s going through too much of a heartbreak because she’s still rocking her engagement ring in the risque shoot.
The actual visuals of the video are quite impressive, however, and Miley even took to Twitter to thank everyone for supporting the hit.
“Thank y’all so much 🙂 Fire is going crazy,” she tweeted. “WeCantStop is back at [number] 1.”
