Miley Cyrus's W interview is online now, and it's — um, well, it's interesting. Ronan Farrow, who conducted the interview, calls her "Molly Bloom… for the Instagram set," so there's that. In one photo, approximately one-third of one nipple is showing, which is the tamest provocation in recorded history to likely rile up the entire Internet.


When asked about critics' accusations that she's accessorizing with black people and objectifying her backup dancers, Miley has this to say: "I don't give a shit. I'm not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl, to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright-colored T-shirts. You know, it's like, I'm not making any kind of statement. Anyone that hates on you is always below you, because they're just jealous of what you have." UH, OKAY. That makes total sense. ("Cyrus seems to have developed a preternatural ability to tune things out," says Farrow, putting it mildly.)

Cyrus goes on to compare herself to Joan Jett: "I like that I'm associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock shit where we just don't care. Like Madonna or Blondie or Joan Jett — Jett's the one that I still get a little shaky around. She did what I did in such a crazier way. I mean, girls then weren't supposed to wear leather pants and, like, fucking rock out. And she did." [W]

Oh, Miley. No one associates you with punk rock.

Or talent, for that matter.
