Miley Cyrus
is getting real candid in her latest interview with the New York Times!

The "Wrecking Ball" singer opens up about her sexy new image, her inspiration and racism in her candid conversation with the paper.

Check out five of the craziest quotes from Miley's interview!

1. She's just playing a character:

"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," she says. "Well, that’s a character. I don’t really dress as a teddy bear and, like, twerk on Robin Thicke, you know?"

2. Miley doesn't think her infamous VMA performance was degrading towards women.

"I didn’t know that I was going to be the only one that was really going to push it like that. It’s actually really funny how many people could watch my performance, and they think it was, like, sexist and degrading to women, and somehow people found that it was racist, which I couldn’t even wrap my mind around," she explains. 

3. And she's not a racist!

I’m like: 'How do I win?' If I have white dancers, then I’m racist. If I have black girl dancers, then I’m racist. We know we’re not racist, and I know I’m not putting down women. People got a rise out of me saying that I was a feminist, but I am. I’m telling women be whoever you want to be."

4. She's had to delete pictures while partying with fellow pop stars. 

"Yeah, it’s insane. I’ll get someone to, like, flash me, and they’ll be, like, 'You have to delete it!' I had to do that when I was 14 or 15, but even then I didn’t care. Like, if someone was videoing me ripping a bong, I didn’t care, so it’s just funny to me. I’m like: “Dude, you’re 30. Like, why can’t someone see a picture of your [breasts]?," she reveals. 

5. Even though some celebs are too scared to be associated with Miley, she does think that she's an image booster. 

"I don’t have a bunch of celeb friends, because I feel like some of them are a little scared of the association. This is terrible. I was backstage with [the rising pop star] 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.'"

Whatever Miley's doing, seems to be working!
