An almost unrecognizable Miley Cyrus covers the latest W magazine
-- rocking bleached-out eyebrows and nothing but jewelry and a strategically placed bed sheet -- in which the controversial singer remains as candid as ever.
One thing she doesn't mind admitting? The former Hannah Montana star, now 21, doesn't like being around kids.
"I don't love kids. I don't love them because, I mean, I think I was around too many kids at one point -- because I was around a lot of kids," she tells the fashion magazine. ".... They're so f***ing 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."
Speaking of her childhood, Miley insists she was raised hands-on by her parents Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus.
"I never had, like, a nanny that took care of me," she recalls. "My mom always fed me breakfast, lunch, and dinner. ... We never were inside, and we never wore shoes. I think it's why I like wearing no clothes so much and I'm always naked."
As for her controversial style, she has no regrets.
"I just don't get what half the girls are wearing. Everyone to me seems like Vanna White. I'm trying to tell girls, like, 'F*** that. You don't have to wear makeup. You don't have to have long blonde hair and big titties. That's not what it's about. It's, like, personal style."
And not surprisingly, constant criticism doesn't bother her.
"I don't give a s***," she says bluntly. "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. 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."
