Miley Cyrus is Elle magazine's August cover girl-not-yet-a-woman. Check out some choice snapshots and excerpts from the cover story, which includes commentary from the petite powerhouse on everything from her (former) relationship with Justin Gaston to fashion, famous friendships and more.
On not giving a hoot, honestly, about missing out on her prom:
"The most fun thing about prom is having that one special night when you dress up and you feel like a princess, and honestly, I get to do that one night a lot."
On her new clothing line with Max Azria … for Wal-Mart:
"The jeans are my favorite part of the entire line. Because, like, literally this is going to be good for, like, Middle America, and it will be great for kids that really want to be in fashion but that don't have it available."
On having a neverending allowance and enjoying designer denim:
"I would pay $500 for the jeans that we make for $20. I'm really into high fashion."
On being Daddy's 'real' girl:
"I like these crooked. I love my teeth. My dad won't let me fix my teeth or cut my hair. He loves it. He's like, 'It's you!'"
On Justin Gaston, her (now) ex-boyfriend:
"We're together, and then again, we're not. 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?"
On who she's hanging out with these days:
It's hard for all of us. There are so many people that could be using you. So me and Nick and Demi, we don't need anything from each other. We got our own thing going on."
