[artist id="2408193"]Miley Cyrus[/artist] is known for many things, including her über-successful career in television, movies and music; her very public relationships; and her sense of style. And Cyrus candidly discussed all those hot topics in the August issue of Elle magazine.
At the time of the interview, Cyrus was still dating model Justin Gaston, and she told the magazine she wasn't initially impressed with him and wasn't sure where her relationship with him stood.
"We're together, and then again, we're not," she said about the 20-year-old. "Some people see us more as friends and don't get why we work in a relationship. They're like, 'It's weird, best friends shouldn't date!' But the person that you eventually spend the rest of your life with — I'm not saying it's him — why are you going to wake up with someone every day and not want to hang out with them?"
In addition to her relationship with Gaston, she also talks a bit about her friendships with [artist id="3079280"]Demi Lovato[/artist] and [artist id="2088128"]Nick Jonas[/artist], who she has recently started dating again after her split from Gaston.
"It's hard for all of us. That's why me and Nick are so close, and me and Demi Lovato are so close. There are so many people that could be using you," she said. "So me and Nick and Demi, we don't need anything from each other. We got our own thing going on."
Although Cyrus is currently working hard on several projects, including her new flick, "The Last Song," she doesn't really talk much about her career. In the issue, she also addresses her looks and how her dad encourages her to not change her quirks for anyone, instead explaining to her they make her unique and not just another cookie-cutter Hollywood starlet. "I like these crooked — I love my teeth," she said. "My dad won't let me fix my teeth or cut my hair. He loves it. He's like, 'It's you!' "
Cyrus also touches on her sense of style, noting that she likes to use the term "modest is hottest" when she dresses, keeping in mind that she is a role model for millions of girls who look up to her. But that doesn't mean she doesn't like to play dress-up either.
"But then, also I end up doing shoots, then I'll do music videos where I'm a little more high-fashion," she explained. "So people look at me in different ways, but for me, every day I want to show what the average girl would wear."
