Miley Cyrus as you've never seen her before: Singer unrecognisable in grown up photoshoot for W Magazine

By Maria Tadeo

Miley Cyrus has stripped naked for a tell-all interview conducted by the son of Mia Farrow and, allegedly, Frank Sinatra, in the March issue of W magazine.

Wearing nothing but a short blonde wig and her eyebrows bleached, the chanteuse looks almost unrecognisable posing for the monthly fashion magazine under the caption "No Apologies, Miley Cyrus Laid Bare by Ronan Farrow".

Miley opens up about her Disney fame, social media and her unusual relationship with her parents, country singer Billy Ray and Trish Cyrus, her manager and "homie". The singer also shares her thoughts on scandal, her bad girl image and Twitter bullies.

"I think with, like, Instagram, Twitter, whatever, everyone is a paparazzi now. How scary is that? Like, you’re never safe," she told Farrow.

"Even ordinary people," Cyrus says, "just think they can, like, talk about you like they know you. Especially because I grew up in it, and like you grew up in it, too, there’s a sense of entitlement."

The singer also defended her controversial fashion choices, which she claims are empowering women to develop their sexuality and inner voice.

She added: "I'm trying to tell girls, like, ‘F*ck that. You don’t have to wear makeup. You don’t have to have long blonde hair and big titties. I like that I’m associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock sh*t where we just don’t care."

Cyrus, 21, who recently released her fourth studio album Bangerz, has no regrets about her recent antics. And there are plenty of those: from her controversial performance next to Robin Thicke at the MTV VMA awards, to smoking marijuana on stage and allegations that she mistreated her troupe of 'twerking dwarves'. But Cyrus simply doesn't "give a sh*t".

"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," she added.


Miley, who recently called off her engagement to Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth and grew up as a teen idol thanks to her Disney show Hannah Montana, revealed she is not looking forward to having children because "they're mean" and often rude.

When it comes to discussing national politics, however, Miley is rather shy. The singer admits the news give her "a little bit of anxiety" and she is not a political person but insists she wants to make a difference. Doing what exactly? Well, she's still trying to figure out that part.

However, when it comes to debating the legalisation of cannabis, Miley admits she loves "getting stoned" and would support stricter quality controls. She wants to go back "to where it's, like, organic, good weed."

Ronan Farrow, the journalist son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, recently made headlines himself after he blasted the film maker during the Golden Globes ceremony accusing him of molesting his sister, Dylan Farrow, when she was just seven years old.

"Missed the Woody Allen tribute," Ronan Farrow tweeted at the time, "Did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?

Ronan, the only biological child of Allen and Farrow, faced questions about his paternity after the actress and activist told Vanity Fair's November issue that Sinatra could "possibly" be his real father.

Farrow, who is also a television presenter for US network MSNBC, laughed off speculation saying "we are all possibly Sinatra's son".


The March issue of W Magazine is out on 12 February 2014.
