Miley won't listen to record bosses

Miley Cyrus has insisted she won't be bossed around by record label executives, because she knows best when it comes to music.

The Wrecking Ball singer told Hunger TV she thought it was strange that older people had so much influence over things aimed at a younger generation.

She said: "With magazines, with movies, it's always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they're driven by people that are like 40 years too old.

"It can't be like this 70-year-old Jewish man that doesn't leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear.

"I'm going out, I know what they want to hear. I know when you're in a club, what makes everyone go crazy and when the time is where everyone's like, 'All right, I'm going go get a drink'. I know when people walk off the dance floor and I know what's driving it, so I've got to be the one doing it because they're just not in on what 20-year-olds are doing."

Miley added that she was looking forward to people hearing her album Bangerz: "Right now I'm the only one in the world who's heard all the music and so I keep trying to explain to people what I'm doing that's different and what kind of sound it is but it's something you can't really describe."

The former Hannah Montana star also said her team thought her video ideas for We Can't Stop and Wrecking Ball were insane at first. In We Can't Stop she frolicks in a swimming pool and twerks on an exercise bike, while in Wrecking Ball she swings naked on a giant demolition ball.

She said: "Once I did Can't Stop that's when people really started trusting me. At first on paper that video sounded insane, no-one understood it and I'm just like, 'Let me film it and then if it doesn't work out you never have to trust me again, but if it works out you have to let me drive this ship, you know I'm onto something.'

"And then they call me and they're like, 'Yo, you're onto something!'."
