"There has been so much controversy sometimes about what I've said or done because I believe there are no mistakes, because God is the only one who can judge us," Cyrus told Parade magazine. "That's the reason I deleted my Twitter account because I said on there that I believed in gay marriage because everyone should have the right to love each other, and I got such hate mail about my being a bad person."
She also reveals in the interview that she isn't a fan of the paparazzi that follow her around at all times. "The other day I felt a little bit in danger for the first time because there were too many photographers following me in too many cars. And I have to ask myself, 'Why would any other 50-year-old man who was stalking a 17-year-old girl go to jail, but not these guys? I'm not as American as anyone else?' " she said. "I mean, they couldn't sit outside of a high school but they can sit outside my recording studio. It's creepy."
Cyrus said she doesn't think she'd ever make country music because she thinks it would require her to act as "sweet as pie," and that she recently became a fan of Lady Gaga. "I love her. She's really smart. I caught her on 'Oprah' and she was really chill. I used to be like, yeah, I guess she's talented but how much is she really singing. But I've become a convert. She has to be smart to come up with all her gags and the stuff she comes up with. She gets it. She knows exactly what she's doing," she explained, adding, "It's like Dolly Parton. Dolly plays up that I'm-a-cute-dumb-blonde but, believe me, she's not dumb. She's sitting on a ba-jillion dollars."
