Miley Cyrus Opens Up About Body Image Issues And Anxiety: ‘I Was Made To Look Like Someone That I Wasn't'

Miley Cyrus has given a revealing interview, in which she opens up about her body image issues.

The star has come a long way since her days as a Disney kid, and during a chat with Marie Claire, Miley explains the pressure she felt to look a certain way, while working for the company.

Nowadays, when she’s not in the studio, Miley also works with the Happy Hippie Foundation, a charity she set up to help youth homelessness, and she's previously opened up on the topic, revealing that she considers herself the perfect person to highlight the issue.

“I’m the one that can fix it,” she said. “I think I’ve been able to identify with it just because I’ve never thought of myself as, ‘I’m a girl and so I can’t do this, or I can do this, or you’ve got to be a boy to do that.’ I feel completely like I’m not tied to a gender or to an age. I feel like an infinite cosmic thing, and that’s what I want people to feel.”

Later this month, she’ll be back at the MTV VMAs, and this time around she’ll be in the driving seat.
