Miley Cyrus Covers W MAGAZINE’s Volume 3, The Pop Issue

Posted on June 03, 2024


W MAGAZINE released the cover for its latest issue, Volume 3, The Pop Issue, featuring Grammy Award-Winning singer-songwriter Miley Cyrus. Each year, The Pop Issue is jam-packed with artistic legends and innovators, highlighting and celebrating the forces that drive pop culture. The issue covers everything from “Life in Parties” to “Pot Art,” showcasing rising stars and established icons across a variety of mediums.





Miley Cyrus on finally receiving her ‘flowers’ after 20+ years: “No shade, but I’ve been doing this for 20 years, and this is my first time actually being taken seriously at the Grammys. I’ve had a hard time figuring out what the measurement is there, because if we want to talk stats and numbers, then where the fuck was I? And if you want to talk, like, impact on culture, then where the fuck was I? This is not about arrogance. I am proud of myself.”

On how she works out in high heels:  “My lifestyle is extremely clean. Sobriety is a big part of it. My mantra is, like any athlete, ‘Practice how you perform.’ So that’s why I practice in my heels. The gym looks really tough, but then I’ve got my ivory Gucci slingbacks because they remind me of Marilyn Monroe. I train in heels, mostly. I’m interested in feminizing the workout space, because so much of the workout equipment is ugly.”

Explaining how “II Most Wanted” end up on COWBOY CARTER: “I wrote that song, like, two and a half years ago. My mom would always go, “I love that song so much.” So when Beyoncé reached out to me about music, I thought of it right away because it really encompasses our relationship. I told her, ‘We don’t have to get country; we are country. We’ve been country.’ I said, ‘You know, between you being from Texas and me being from Tennessee, so much of us is going to be in this song.’ Getting to write a song, not just sing, for Beyoncé was a dream come true.”

Sharing a peak into what she and Beyoncé text about: “One of the things that we text about is our relationships with our mothers. Like her mom, Ms. Tina, my mom is also an M.T.: Mama Tish. A lot of people call her Mom, in the way that Ms. Tina is almost not just a mother to Beyoncé, but to Beyoncé’s fans as well. Both of us grew up, in our own way, with moms who were everything. My mom was my makeup, hair, seamstress, styling, tour manager—like, the actual manager. The word “mother” is the most all-encompassing word. The mother can be RuPaul; the mother can be Beyoncé. Our fans call us ‘mother.’”

Miley on the way she views the world: “I have a rule that I don’t look up or don’t look down at anyone. I just look, which allows me the clarity to see the world for what it really is and people for who they really are.”
