For her session with BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge, Miley Cyrus tried her hand at Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness.” Though she didn’t stray too far from the original, Miley makes it all her own and frankly, out-sings Lana.
Miley, keeping things demure in all black, picks up where “Wrecking Ball” left off and finds her sweet spot on the ballad. With help from her backup singers, Miley, in all her gravel-voiced glory, makes the line, “I just wanted you to know/That baby you’re the best” more than just a compliment.
In an interview with the BBC earlier today (Nov. 12), Miley said that she considers herself to be a feminist. “I feel like I’m one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women to not be scared of anything,” she said.
The “We Can’t Stop” singer also talked about her recent joint-filled appearance on Sunday night’s (Nov. 10) MTV EMAs, defending her actions by saying: “I never worry about what I do on stage making me look bad.”
In fact, she says she’s much more down to earth than people give her credit for.
“I’m definitely crazy, but I’m normal,” she said. “I feel like [I am] socially probably more acceptable than a lot of people in this industry because I’ve just always grown up around this and so I never have any kind of attitude.”
