Twerking superstar Miley Cyrus tells British Cosmopolitan that she actually — gasp — dislikes the scrutiny she gets and the headlines she makes.
"The biggest misconception about me is that I like the media attention. I wish I could be who I am without the fame. If everyone would still buy my records and if everything would go to No.1 in 30 seconds or whatever … that'd be great."
Well, it's up to you what you make of that, coming from a singer who got up close and personal with a foam finger on live TV and was naked in her Wrecking Ball video.
But hey, she's not looking back. "I live without any regrets — you can't change anything, so I don't think about it. But would I ever want a 'normal' life? Yeah, there are definitely times when I wake up and wish I could go out without being photographed. I don't care if people recognize me and say 'hey,' but I don't want to be stopped. I want to just walk around and see new cities."
But there's more: "I don't put pressure on myself to be a role model, other than hopefully inspiring people to be good and to treat people well."
