Miley Cyrus: “I want to be a role model.”
HollywoodNews.com: With the recent announcement of her edgy new movie role with Demi Moore, Miley Cyrus continues her attempts to balance her new, adult image with her squeaky-clean Disney roots. In a new interview with the Montreal Gazette, Cyrus talks about the end of “Hannah Montana” and her future as an actress and singer, saying frankly, “Yes, I want to be a role model and have people look up to me, but this also doesn’t mean that I am not going to live the way that I want to live or do what I think is right.”
Insisting that her family still keeps her grounded, Cyrus elaborates, “I think it’s been easier for me to grow up, because I’ve never faked it, saying that I’m always going to be Hannah forever. I’m going to grow up at some point, and I’ve been always honest about that.”
For Miley, the end of “Hannah Montana” isn’t necessarily a bad thing for her fans. “Life will go on, you know, just the way anyone else’s life goes on. We made it more about a new chapter and not about the ending of something. It is the end, but it’s also the beginning of something new.”
