The ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ singer thinks her younger self would be appalled if she heard the direction her songs have taken as she has got older because her own tastes are so different to what she produces.
She explained: “I listen to zero pop music, which is really weird for someone who makes pop music.
“My 13-year-old self would have beaten up my 17-year-old self because she would be like, ‘You’re a sellout!’ But that’s not what it is. It’s not dance music that’s just about, ‘Ooh, I’m in the club and everyone’s looking at me.’ It means something. I’m not just sitting here trying to sell glitz and glamour…because no one lives that life. A lot of pop songs are super shallow, but this music isn’t.”
The ‘Hannah Montana’ star also spoke of her hatred of musicals, insisting she would never enjoy watching a TV show such as singing-and-dancing extravaganza ‘Glee’.
She added in an interview with Billboard magazine: “Honestly, musicals? I just can’t. What if this was real life and I was just walking down the street on Rodeo Drive and all of a sudden I just burst into song about how much I love shoes? It would get hits on YouTube.”
