Miley Cyrus might not have been alive in the ’80s, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t appreciate the decade’s music. According to People magazine, Cyrus has recorded a cover of Poison’s 1988 hit “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”
” ‘Every Rose’ is one of her all-time favorite songs, and she is really excited about cutting it,” Miley’s mom, Tish Cyrus, told the magazine. The remake was recorded in New York alongside Poison frontman Bret Michaels, who is rumored to play guitar on the track.
Cyrus is also hard at work on her next album, but she revealed in an interview with U.K. television show “GMTV” that she’s planning a musical hiatus.
“I want to do my last pop record. I’m working on a record right now,” she told the show. “I kind of want this to be my last record for a little while and be able to take a break and just get all the types of music that I really love … you know, my favorite styles, because in a few years, as I grow up, so will my fans, and I won’t have to focus on that as much, and I’ll be able to have more of the sound of music that I’m into.”
In a recent interview with MTV News, Timbaland compared the singer to a friend of his and praised the young singer’s drive.
“I look at Miley as a female Justin Timberlake,” Tim said. “The reason why I say that is her work ethics are incredible. That girl can sing so good that I was very impressed. I couldn’t believe it. I’m like, ‘This is Miley Cyrus? She’s singing the song?’” he revealed.
