Miley Cyrus Would Consider Herself A Sellout

Miley Cyrus can’t believe she’s making mainstream music for a living – because she listens to “zero pop music.”

The Hannah Montana star has strong country roots through her Achy Breaky Heart hit-maker dad Billy Ray, and despite releasing three pop-orientated records to date, the star is not a fan of the genre. And Cyrus insists she would have branded herself a “sellout” if she had known the direction her career would take when she was younger.

She tells Billboard magazine, “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!'”

However, the singer refuses to believe her songs are as “super shallow” as her pop contemporaries.

She adds, “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.”
