Miley Cyrus is not happy about Joe Jonas' candid article in Vulture magazine, in which he revealed that Cyrus and fellow Disney star Demi Lovato pressured him to smoke weed when they were teenagers.
When asked what she thought about the published piece "My Life After Jonas Brothers," Cyrus told The New York Times Jonas was not pressured into anything. She added that maybe he stretched the story to make himself sound more "badass" to readers.
"If you want to smoke weed, you're going to smoke weed. There's nothing that two little girls are going to get you to do that you don't want to do," the 21-year-old said. "I thought maybe he was saying that like it was going to make him sound badass."
"We were so young that it's actually like, 'How did you get peer pressured by me?' " she added.
The Wrecking Ball singer went on to say that even though they were young at the time (in the Vulture article Jonas said he was about 16 or 17 when he first smoked), drugs and sex is all part of the music business.
"I went from people 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. It's like, has anyone ever heard of rock 'n' roll? There's a sex scene in pretty much every single movie, and they go, 'Well, that's a character'," she said. "I don't really dress as a teddy bear and like, twerk on Robin Thicke, you know?"
It might all be an act she puts on, but Cyrus said people not being able to get past her epic performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards caused her to be labeled and seen as that type of person in real life.
"So, I feel like now that I did the VMAs, that just kind of became a standard for me, and then anytime I do anything else, they're like, 'Miley kept it tame tonight,' " she said.
Cyrus also told the magazine how she associates with celebrities who have squeaky clean images.
"I was backstage with Ariana Grande. I'm like 'Walk out with me right now and get this picture, and this will be the best thing that happens to you, because just you associating with me makes you a little less sweet," she revealed. "I see her wearing the shorter things. She comes in, and she goes, 'This made me feel like you.' And I'm like, 'That was like my sixth grade prom dress.'"
