No more hidings!. Singer Miley Cyrus spoke with Metallica’s Lars Ulrich for Interview Magazine about what it means to be a rock star, performing at music festivals during the pandemic and more. And while she bared her soul metaphorically, the 28-year-old “Midnight Sky” singer literally stripped down for the mag, too. She posed topless for multiple shots, including one in which she wears nothing but sheer black Gucci underwear ($1,100) covered in the luxury label’s logos.
In another shot, she squeezes her bare breasts in the same undies, this time topped off with a green feathered Gucci jacket. The censored version of the shot appears on the issue’s cover.
In other images, Cyrus sports prosthetic cleavage beneath a Buci romper, a Baserange bodysuit and a Saint Laurent sweater.
She even flexes her acting skills, feigning shock in a Miu Miu crochet dress while being attacked by, well, herself — or rather a creepy topless doppelgänger clad in nude tights, furry Miu Miu boots and a custom wolf headpiece by Nicholas Des Jardins.
In the interview, Cyrus compared her return to the stage to Marilyn Monroe performing for thousands of American troops in Korea in 1954.
“I couldn’t stop thinking of that iconic image of her, bringing people hope in the form of sexuality and wit and beauty and joy. But at the same time, she was able to offer that because she was so insulated from the experience that the soldiers were living through. She was this breath of fresh air because she didn’t have the same darkness and pain and death taking over her aura,” --- Cyrus told Ulrich.
“But in this case, we’ve all been soldiers, in our own way,” she added.
