Miley Cyrus Talks Collaboration With Pharrell &, New Single Originally For Rihanna, Being 'White Nicki Minaj'

With "We Can't Stop" as the first single released from her upcoming album, Miley Cyrus is making a comeback with a whole different persona.

In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Cyrus stressed that she doesn't want to be viewed as the teen queen she once was.

"I want to start as a new artist. I consider my upcoming album my first, really," said the former Disney star.

Coming in at No. 11 on the Hot 100 this week, "We Can't Stop" is something totally unexpected from the former Hannah Montana. The song is filled with lyrics glorifying "twerking" and drugs.

The producers of Cyrus' new single, Mike Will Made It, told Billboard that the song was originally for Rihanna. However, Miley says the song illustrates what she has done in real-life.

"I'm 20 years old and I want to talk to the people that are up all night with their friends. It's based on a true story of a crazy night I had: When I heard the song for the first time, it captured exactly what I was living."

Although Miley loves the urban style of music, she made it apparent that she is in no way trying to be a rapper.

"A lot of people wanted to try to make me the white Nicki Minaj," Cyrus said. "That's not what I'm trying to do. I love 'hood' music, but my talent is as a singer."

Keeping her country-rock flare in the new album, Miley also got in touch with her urban style.

"It's not a hip-hop album, though-it's a pop album. It's more like, 'I don't see any girls out there doing what Miguel and Frank Ocean are doing,'" said the songstress.

Before working with and Dr. Luke on tracks like "We Can't Stop" and "Stand by Me" featuring Future, Miley credit Pharrell for gearing her up for this new journey when they united in Miami.

"We wanted to make something really different," she says. "He [Pharrell] came to my house, and I didn't have shoes on-I don't put a show on for anybody. He said, 'This is why I love you: You're just wild and free, and I want to capture that.'"

Miley Cyrus' album will hit stores this Fall.

Tbh Pharrell is wasting his time and talent working with this wannabe-ratchet hoe. Sooner or later she's gonna start abusing drugs (if she isn't already) and end up like Lohan.
It's sad cuz she has a father and he doesn't give a damn about her being a hoe

LMAO, this dumb a-ss wi-gga hoe really tries to get down with the "hood", she really thinks she will, at some point, be considered a real "bi-tch", this hoe's been run through by so many just so she can be accepted in some social groups that she would not normally be accepted in, I am sure she saw a LOT of di-ck in her life, especially since she started proving to the world that she is not an innocent, born-rich, Hollywood girl but a real hoe LOL
