In an interview with iHeartRadio, Miley Cyrus reveals she almost said goodbye to Instagram, but one feature – that she helped start – made her stay on the social media platform.
The “Malibu” singer sat down with Elvis Duran during iHeartRadio’s Label Defiers podcast and told him about her advice to sister Noah, who is just starting to make a splash in the music industry. “I told Noah, I’ll keep your comments turned off,” Cyrus said. “I love that Instagram has that as a feature. Never read anything that anyone says about you. Don’t Google yourself.”
But Instagram wasn’t always that way, “I was a part of that with Instagram. I went to the head tip top of Instagram and said that I couldn’t be on the platform anymore if they didn’t start making it a place that artists really can express themselves and not be completely verbally abused when you do so,” she revealed.
From “Wrecking Ball” to “Malibu”, what made Cyrus change her direction? Well, the wrecking ball might have been just a little too uncomfortable.
“Which is a lot more uncomfortable than people give me credit for. They just talk about how racy it is,” the 23-year-old singer revealed. “They don’t know how brave. I mean, you don’t understand. It’s really uncomfortable.”
But even after a change in sound, it doesn’t mean it will stay like that forever, “My life is always like at. Right now, I’ve spend a lot of time in Nashville and I’ve been missing home a lot. So, the way that I work is I put out a song called Malibu and then I move back to Nashville,” she said. “This is just the way I am. I do a ‘Wrecking Ball’ song and then I go and sing a Tracy Chapman song, and then I move to Malibu and I put out a song about how much I love it, and then I move. That’s just the way I am, but I didn’t move yet, but I’m thinking about it.”
