Cyrus’ most recent single, “We Can’t Stop,” is currently No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and recently broke VEVO’s record as the clip to reach 100 million views the fastest.

It’s a part of what she loves, which is a very big difference. I would expect that there would be elements of the things that she’s into, but nothing rules her.”
