Miley Cyrus To Debut First Artwork Collection During New York Fashion Week
Miley Cyrus will debut her first art collection, titled “Dirty Hippie,” during the Jeremy Scott show on Wednesday at New York Fashion Week.
Cyrus, who has been sharing photos of her creations on Instagram, told V Magazine that she started using art as a creative outlet after a tough year.
“This seems so f*cking lame to say but I feel like my art became kind of a metaphor — an example of my life,” she said. “Because a bunch of sh*tty things kept happening. I’ve always been so f*cking lucky. Everything has always just been easy for me.”
But things changed.
She noted, “At the beginning of this year, I hated 2014 because everything that could go wrong kept going wrong. Being in the hospital, my dog dying… Everything just kept sh*tting on me and sh*tting on me.”
“So then I started taking all of those sh– things and making them good, and being like, I’m using it,” she continued. “My brother and my friends all said that’s what they felt I was doing. So, that’s how I started making art. I had a bunch of f*cking junk and sh*t, and so instead of letting it be junk and sh*t, I turned it into something that made me happy.”
The “Wrecking Ball” singer’s sculptures are a madcap mix of fan gifts and illicit substances.
“This one’s a vibrator, which I got from a fan,” she said, while pointing to one piece. “They threw it on stage. And that’s a joint [attached to it], so that’s the vibe.”
“I’ve gotten more and more about piling things on, but I try to put thought into everything,” said Cyrus, who has a piece of art that involves a pineapple, a fake penis and toy babies.
She explained, “Even though it’s so stupid, I did the pineapple because you know what they say about pineapple, right? Yummy cum? If you drink a lot of pineapple juice you’re going to have yummy cum. So that’s why I put it on the dick with a bunch of babies, and it says, ‘F**k.’ I try to think about everything so it has a story to me.”
Cyrus, who has admitted that she doesn’t want to be a pop star for the rest of her life, credits Scott for encouraging her art.
“Jeremy brought a lot of peace and self worth to me because even though to some people, it was just me gluing some things together, to me, it made me not a f**king pop star dumbass,” she said. “And that’s my goal in my life: to not die a pop pop dumb dumb. I can’t. I will freak out.”
Cyrus added, “I just wanted to give myself something I can work at, and even now, if I had more time and I wasn’t on tour, I know I could outdo any of this because I’ve grown while doing it.”
Following the Jeremy Scott show, “Dirty Hippie” will be on display at V Magazine office’s gallery in New York, starting September 11.
