Los Angeles: It is sex, drugs and pop music - and Miley Cyrus is fine with it that way now that the provocative singer has shed her innocent Disney star image along with most of her clothes.Cyrus, 21, who has grabbed headlines in the past year for her admitted drug use, sexually suggestive dancing and wearing as little as boots in a music video, said she was surprised by the scrutiny her new persona has attracted."I went from people just thinking I was, like, a baby to people thinking I`m this, like, sex freak that really just pops molly and does lines all day," Cyrus told the New York Times in an interview to be published on Sunday and made available early online, referring to the drugs MDMA and cocaine, respectively."It`s like, `Has anyone ever heard of rock `n` roll?`" the "Wrecking Ball" singer countered. "There`s a sex scene in pretty much every single movie, and they go, `Well, that`s a character.` Well, that`s a character. I don`t really dress as a teddy bear and, like, twerk on Robin Thicke, you know?"
Cyrus signed with label RCA this year after releasing her first three albums on Disney`s Hollywood Records.Cyrus, the daughter of country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus, also fired back at pop star Joe Jonas, formerly of the Jonas Brothers, who said Cyrus and pop singer Demi Lovato introduced him to marijuana."If you want to smoke weed, you`re going to smoke weed," Cyrus said. "There`s nothing that two little girls are going to get you to do that you don`t want to do."
