Cyrus Buys Her 18th Birthday Home12-04-2010
Miley Cyrus talks about her decision to quit music and buying her first home.
Miley Cyrus has bought her first home and plans to spend the summer renovating the Toluca Lake spread in Los Angeles, so she can officially move in when she turns 18 in November.
The actress/singer has reportedly spent $3.4 million (£2.1 million) on the estate and she can't wait to call it home - once she and her mother have redesigned the interior. And Cyrus admits it's going to be a tough summer - because the pair hascompletely different views on home style.
She says, "My mom is, like, an interior designer... so my mom's gonna help me do all of that stuff, but we have pretty much the most opposite taste of any two human beings on the planet, so I have a feeling there's gonna be some fist fights in (furniture store) Ikea.
"I want everything on the floor and really zen and my mom likes chandeliers.I wanna be able to touch stuff in my house and not be afraid of breaking it".
In other news Miley Cyrus has defended her decision to quit pop - insisting she has grown disillusioned with the "contrived" music industry. Since shooting to fame as schoolgirl pop star Hannah Montana on the hit Disney show, Cyrus has released 3 studio albums to date, and is planning for her 4th, out later this year, to be her last.
The 17 year old has moved on to serious acting with her first grown-up role in The Last Song, and has confirmed that she wants to concentrate onher movie career. And Cyrus insists she felt forced to step away from making music, because she grew tired of record label bureaucracy.
She says, "I just feel like the industry is so contrived and political right now. If people stepped away and said, 'We're not going to work like this, it's more about out art than the politics', then maybe it would go back to being respected again.
"I'd rather be in an industry that I feel like I can be different in, and do things that really inspire me. It's not that I don't love music, I do. But I feel like I just need to get away from that for a little while".
