Despite all the controversy their collaboration courted earlier this year,
"Everyone outside of America liked it a little bit more, because that's more like the style, but the States are really conservative," she said in an interview with the U.K.'s Daily Record. "I just had to deal with that and just realize that I got to work with an amazing photographer."
In the photo, which appeared in the April issue of Vanity Fair, Cyrus appeared draped in just a blanket and had many people outraged that a 15-year-old would be portrayed in such a provocative fashion. "She was amazing and so talented and her lighting ... I would love to work with her again. But I realize I'm just a kid," she said. "My parents are really chilled with me until I give them a reason not to be, so hopefully I'll never give them a reason."
She added that working with Leibovitz inspired Cyrus to pursue photography one day. "That's what I want to do with my life. I would love to be a photographer," she said. "I do want to come to London to study photography. I hear there are some really great art schools here, so I would love to do that."
Until then, Cyrus is busy acting on "Hannah Montana," as well as keeping everyone guessing about her rumored relationship with 20-year-old underwear model Justin Gaston. "I'm surrounded by good-looking guys, the models, the actors, this and that, so it ends up not being about that," she said. "It ends up being about the personality and the way someone treats you."
Even with all her success, Cyrus manages to stay grounded, thanks to her family. And at 16, she has no intentions of moving out on her own yet. "Maybe when I am 20 [I'll move out]," she said. "When my mom stops cooking for me. As soon as my mom stops making me food, then I'm out."
