In her new single “Can’t Be Tamed,” Miley Cyrus flaunts her defiant side. The 17-year-old superstar sings that she “can’t be tamed” or “can’t be changed” and neither, it seems, can some of her opinions. In recent weeks, the singer has been vocal about her pop culture dislikes – many of which may be surprising.
Here are the five things that Cyrus is just not that into:
She recently told Billboard magazine that she “just can’t” enjoy musicals. And despite its mega-ratings and critical praise, Cyrus wasn’t budging about Glee – even if the Fox hit featured her hit “The Climb.” “What if this was real life and I was just walking down the street on Rodeo Drive,” she said, “and all of a sudden I just burst into song about how much I love shoes?”
2. Country Music
Cyrus told Parade magazine she’s glad her dad got out of the “contrived” country music scene. “You have to wear those cowboy boots and be sweet as pie,” she said.
3. Pop Music
Despite scoring bona fide pop hits, the singer says she doesn’t love the genre. “I don’t listen to pop music,” she said on her official MileyWorld site. “‘Party in the USA’ is not even my style of music.”
Cyrus quit the popular microblogging site cold turkey back in Oct. 2009. In her farewell Tweet the singer wrote, “FYI Liam doesn t have a Twitter and he wants ME to delete mine with good reason.” She still posts on her Web site, though.
“I’ve never seen [Twilight“] and nor will I ever,” Cyrus told Ohio radio station Q92 in Nov. 2009. Not even eye candy Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner? “I don’t like vampires,” she continued. “I don’t like the wolf that pops out of the screen when I’m watching my TV at night. I don’t like it. I don’t want anything to do with it.”
