Miley Cyrus has kept very busy during the global pandemic and in a new interview with British Vogue the singer runs down what she’s learned from the alone time and where it might take her music next. While Cyrus continues to tease a turn toward her rock side, she told the magazine that here’s one fellow pop star she’s dying to collaborate with.
“There are always new emerging artists that are super interesting,” said Cyrus, who has collaborated with everyone from punk godmother Joan Jett to her actual godmother Dolly Parton, Stevie Nicks, Dua Lipa and Ariana Grande over the years. “I love Billie Eilish. I think she’s just the coolest. I love her, her messaging. I’d love to work with her.”
In the wide-ranging chat, Cyrus talked about how she hoped that her fans took some time to delve inside during the COVID-19 lockdown courtesy of her Bright Minded Instagram variety show series. “We didn’t have many external experiences going on at that time,” she said of our long year-plus indoors. “So all of us were able to explore ourselves in our different layers and dig deeper into things that we haven’t had the time to [go into].”
Cyrus, who is working on a Metallica covers album, was also asked to choose between rock and pop, and, well, she couldn’t exactly decide. “It depends on what kind of mood I’m in. Some days the toughest choice I have to make is Britney [Spears] or Courtney [Love],” she said. “Those are usually my big decisions, my big dilemmas.”
She’ll definitely rock the (vaccinated) crowd in Nashville on Tuesday (June 8) at her special “Stand By You” Pride Month concert, where she’s promised to bust out some more of her signature cover songs, as well as some special guests for the 18+ fully vaxxed crowd.
