Miley Cyrus says she was “embarrassed” by the brouhaha earlier this year over her semi-clothed Vanity Fair photos but thinks her fans realize that she’s only human.

“I don’t think people will look at me any differently, because they’re like, ‘You know what, I’m going to do stupid stuff too, and I’m going to make mistakes, and that’s fine,'” Cyrus, 15, tells Billboard. “It still hurts when I think about it – but you know what, it doesn’t mean that you can’t move on.”

The Hannah Montana star says fans can expect a very “grown-up” album in Breakout, in stores July 22.

“My last one, Meet Miley Cyrus, was more just meeting me, finding out who I am, and here it’s more getting in depth of what’s been going on in my life in the past year.”

Cyrus wrote all but two of the songs herself.

“I just hope this record showcases that – more than anything – I’m a writer,” she says.

She’s already described her latest single and video, “7 Things,” as an “angry little therapy moment for me.”

Cyrus is in the middle of filming the feature film version of Hannah Montana in Nashville. She will be hosting the Teen Choice Awards in L.A. on Aug. 3.
