Sept. 17--Miley Cyrus is a child! That's why she's been acting naughty lately. The tempest-in-a-teapot controversy du jour says she spent her entire childhood workin' for a living, so she's trying to make up for lost time.
"I was an adult when I was supposed to be a kid. So now I'm an adult and I'm acting like a kid," the twerkadelic singer and would-be sex symbol tells Harper's Bazaar.
Miley, 20, is not having a breakdown, as some have claimed. "I've always been around this industry, so I didn't have my mind blown or become obsessed with being famous," she says.
Miley's single again!
Think we may have found a better reason for Miley's acting-out: Her epic romance with hunkadelic Aussie Liam Hemsworth, 23, has ended, their reps tell USA Today.
That's like, huge: The couple had been engaged (to marry) since May 2012.
E! News says it was "Miley's decision, after coming to grips with Liam being what she believed was less than faithful."
Bad boy. Bad girl. Bad world.
