Miley Cyrus defends her new image

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has spoken out about her new image, saying she won't be told what to wear or what to sing about.

Her latest album Can't Be Tamed has a more grown-up style, but not all fans like the new Miley.

The star said: "People are always going to give negative feedback about something. You can't live your life trying to please everyone.

"I'm trying to... make a point with my record and look consistent, in the way my record sounds and the way I dress."

Miley's outfits have been put under the spotlight lately but she said she's comfortable with herself.

"I work really hard to be fit and to know that I can wear whatever makes me most comfortable," she said.

"It's not like this was me five years ago. It's me now, presently."

And she insists it's her songs that matter: "I want people to buy my record because of my music."
