Her critics are “just jealous”
Miley Cyrus doesn't care for kids or critics in a new interview with Ronan Farrow in the March issue of W Magazine, for which she posed naked for the cover.
“I don't love kids,” Cyrus said in the interview published on Monday. “They’re so f–king mean. Sometimes I hear kids with their parents, and I want to go over and, like, smack them myself…Like if they meet me, they’ll be like, ‘Mom, don’t you know how to use an iPhone? Like, can you take the picture?’ I’m like, ‘Dude, if I ever talked to my mom like that when I was a kid, I would have had no phone, no computer, no TV, no anything.’ And so, yeah, kids are just mean.”

Critics of her provocative image that she has been flaunting on social media, traditional media and on stage since the lead up to the release of her latest album, “Bangerz,” also haven't been kind to her. When asked about The Guardian referring to her act as “a minstrel show,” or Jezebel accusing her of “accessorizing with black people,” Cyrus accused her haters of simply being “jealous.”
“I don’t give a shit. I’m not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl, to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright-colored T-shirts,” Cyrus said. “You know, it’s like, I’m not making any kind of statement. Anyone that hates on you is always below you, because they’re just jealous of what you have.”
Cyrus has a lot — money, fame and a house in the hills overlooking Los Angeles — but she admitted “friends” are scarce.
“I have a lot of people that I could call and hang out with, but I have very few friends, if that makes any sense,” Cyrus said.
And with few friends, a “love” for “getting stoned,” the paparazzi regularly camped outside her home, and just about everything she needs already at home, she can't find many reasons to leave it.
“I never leave the house,” Cyrus said. “Why go to a movie? I’ve got a huge-ass TV. We’ve got a chef here that can make you great food. We don’t need to leave. I would just rather be here where I’m completely locked in.”
