Miley Cyrus Says She Wants A 'Normal Life' As She Poses For Cosmopolitan Magazine

Miley Cyrus has opened up to Cosmopolitan magazine claiming she doesn't like media attention and is desperate to lead a "normal" life.

"The biggest misconception about me is that I like the media attention. I wish I could be who I am without the fame," she told the mag.

"If everyone would still buy my records and if everything would go to No.1 in 30 seconds or whatever... that'd be great."

Discussing THAT performance of 'Blurred Lines' with Robin Thicke at the MTV VMAs in August, she admitted it was "bittersweet".

"Yeah, that was kind of bittersweet. It wasn't supposed to overshadow everyone else; it was meant to be fun. But hey, it got the most tweets in history."

However she's adamant she doesn't regret it. "I live without any regrets - you can't change anything, so I don't think about it.

"But would I ever want a 'normal' life? Yeah, there are definitely times when I wake up and wish I could go out without being photographed.

"I don't care if people recognise me and say 'hey', but I don't want to be stopped. I want to just walk around and see new cities."

Discussing her status as a role model she said: "I don't put pressure on myself to be a role model, other than hopefully inspiring people to be good and to treat people well.

"I'm going to be what I want, and I'm going to do what I want.

"When people are suffocated, that's when they end up falling off."
