Since its series premiere last fall, Glee has become a pop-culture juggernaut, adored by millions of fans devoted to the stories and songs of McKinley High's misfit choir. But there's one teen who won't be calling herself a "Gleek" anytime soon: Miley Cyrus!
When Billboard magazine asked their latest cover girl how she felt about Fox's hit series, which follows a high school glee club and the school staffers who support (or target) it, the 17-year-old Disney princess responded, "Honestly, musicals? I just can't."
Cyrus (whose single "The Climb" was featured in a recent Glee episode) went on to ask, "What if this was real life and I was just walking down the street on Rodeo Drive and all of a sudden I just burst into song about how much I love shoes? It would get hits on YouTube."
But it's not just musicals Cyrus mocks. The star of Hannah Montana (about a teenage pop star) -- who previously claimed she's "not a fan" of fellow tween star Justin Bieber -- also says she will never watch any of the Twilight series, and has accomplished the nearly impossible task of never hearing a Jay-Z song (though she does seem to like Lady Gaga, whom she gives props to in the interview, stating: "Unlike a lot of artists, all her music does mean something to her personally").
Cyrus even says she can't stand the very genre that's made her a star! She tells Billboard, "I listen to zero pop music, which is really weird for someone who makes pop music. My 13-year-old self would have beaten up my 17-year-old self because she would be like, 'You're a sellout!'"
Nevertheless, Cyrus -- whose new pop single "Can't Be Tamed" is climbing the charts -- insists her music is more than meets the ear. "It's not dance music that's just about, 'Ooh, I'm in the club and everyone's looking at me. It means something. I'm not just sitting here trying to sell glitz and glamour...because no one lives that life. A lot of (pop) songs are super shallow, but this music isn't."
Do you agree with Miley Cyrus that Glee is silly? Chime in below!
