The following is the script from the video.
You’ve been making some headlines, and I want to ask you about this. -Uh-oh. -Yeah, I know. -I’ve been really good lately. -Yeah, you have. -I’ve been really good. You don’t see what I do in the dressing room. It’s just like . . . The whole thing. -No, Miley, that’s not at all what you do. Because I heard, and I don’t know if this is true, but I think it’s true because I didn’t smell anything — you stopped smoking weed? -I did.
And you know what? I was just saying that you, without knowing it, were kind of a reason for this because I’ve always been very stoned on your shows. I don’t know if you noticed, everybody. So, yeah. It’s weird to be here — -That makes two of us. -Yeah. -Yeah, there you go. -Remember the last time I was here? I think I was dressed as, like, a bunny rabbit… -Yes, you were. -…and then, like, a cat. There’s a reason for that. -Yeah. Okay. -I was high.
And I don’t know if this is much better, but I stopped smoking because — And, you know, to sit here and to talk about what I’m doing, I wanted to be really clear because I’m actually the most passionate about what I’m doing with this record than I’ve been. I say this every time, but I loved making this record so, so much, and this record for me at this moment is the most important album that I’ve ever made, so I wanted to make sure that I’m super clear about the way I’m talking.
And I kept having this nightmare. It was seriously horrible. I wonder if you’ve had this. Not about this show. I had a dream that I would die during my monologue on “SNL” for some reason, that I would just get so stoned that I just, like, died, which I Googled, and that’s never happened. -No, no, it’s not. -No, thank God. But I kept having this nightmare. -How much weed were you smoking? -A lot of weed. It’s like no one’s ever died from weed, but no one’s ever smoked as much as I did, so… It’s, like, they don’t really know, so I don’t know. I was just thinking, If I want to sit on this couch and really tell people what I think about my new music, I wanted to sound as smart as hopefully I, you know, think that I could be and really explain what I’m doing.
And, you know, I really just want to sit at home and eat, basically, when I’m stoned and play with my dogs and the cat and the pig. I was spending way too much time with the pig and not enough time actually doing really anything. -But you ended up — Did you move to a place, or you always lived in Malibu? -No. Malibu is new to me. I never lived at the beach. I, you know, it says I never came to the beach, I never stood by the ocean, which is true. I went to the ocean one time, which — I want to talk to you about this. I went one time to Florida with my family, and it didn’t go well because we fist fought the entire way, and my dad promised he’d never take us on a vacation ever again. And he’s a man of his word. He never did… -That was the only vacation? -…because it was so miserable. And finally, me and my brother, we were fighting so hard — this is, like, some hillbilly stuff — he locked us out of the car on the side of the freeway and said that we needed to figure it out.
So we basically just had to battle until one of us lost. -I love that he did that. That is so… -Yeah. -…Nashville. -And then we didn’t get to get back in the car — -Y’all better figure it out. -Yeah. -We’re pulling over. -…until one of us were bleeding, then we didn’t get back in the RV. So we never went again. And, you know, I don’t think — For me, like, being from Nashville, it really is — it says a dream come true in Malibu. It really is for me because I never thought — I thought I was going to be — I still get the pigs, but I thought my life was going to revolve, you know, around farm life my entire, you know, my life. I thought I’d always live in Nashville. But now I’ve even found a new love for Nashville. Now that I’m out singing about how much I love Malibu — I’ve been promoting it — -You can’t — -…and now I miss Nashville.
I never know what the hell I want. That’s why I’m, like, a panda, and one day, I’m a cat. -Yeah. -I don’t even know. I can’t even decide between a panda and a cat. -As much Miley as you can, you experience, you can never take the Nashville out of Miley, and I will tell you… -No. -…because you shot the opening last night. We were here late doing that. And there’s the one where you go up to the nut stand, you know, the hot peanut stand, cashew stand. And you go like that, and you do the thing that I do in the opening. -Yes. My first time, as well. -Yeah. And you thought that was called a bodega. -Yeah. Yeah, I told my manager, who is from New York. He’s like “What are we doing next?” I said, “I’m going to the bodega,” and then I went to the nut stand.
He’s like, “By the way, the” — And you saw I didn’t know how to use a revolving door, which that’s not because I’m Nashville. That’s just because there’s something wrong. -So I got to the subway — -You were like, “This is going too fast.” It’s just a revolving door. -Yeah, and I couldn’t get through the revolving door — two of them. And the one at the subway was a little different than what I was used to, so that was — -That’s a turnstile. -It has nothing to do, though, that I am from — Oh, okay.
-Yeah, that’s not a revolving door. -It’s not that I’m from Nashville. I got a problem. -It’s basically a revolving door. -Yeah, it’s a door that revolves. It allowed me in or out of somewhere and revolves, so, to me, that is a revolving door. -It is a revolving — Technically, it is a revolving door, you’re right.
-Let me in or out. -No you’re right, you’re right. -Yeah. I want to talk about — I want to talk about “The Voice.” It has a new season coming up in September. And you have a new judge, a new kind of “foe,” a new enemy, kind of, on the show, A friend — frenemy. -Yeah. -Jennifer Hudson. -It always starts as a friend until you get to the lives.
Then it gets nasty. -Then all of a sudden — Yeah, no, it doesn’t, actually. -I know. -We only all turn on Blake. That’s the only person we ever turn on. -Because he’s just — he’s — -Because he always wins. -I know. He’s the champ. -And he’s so nice. He’s so nice, so it’s so hard to hate, but, like, got to do what you got to do to win. -Exactly, yeah. Sorry about that. -Yeah, exactly.
But it’s really a lot of fun, and I’m excited. -Do you know Jennifer? -I don’t, but I’m excited that she’s never done “The Voice” before because I was the rookie the first time, so Blake and Adam had that against me. And now I have, like, a little bit of experience, so I’m trying to decide, like, who I’m going to — I guess all three of us can just team up against Blake, but I’m trying to decide who going be my partner in crime because Alicia was my partner last year, and it was really fun to kind of go against Adam and Blake because they were the vets and we were in it together. -I know. I think you have to choose Jennifer… -I know. …because Blake knows Adam too well, now. – Adam’s ready to turn. He is not loyal. I’ll tell you that about him.
I’ll let you in. He’s ready to turn. He texts me all the time. Like, “So when are we really going to just knock Blake out of this thing?” -Yeah. -As he would say [As Blake] “Handle this thing.” You know, that’s Blake. He’s like, “I’m gonna win this thing with you, Sundance.” I’m gonna win this thing. But you know what? I’m going to come for him in, like, the biggest way possible. I’m bringing my dad as my mega mentor because when Blake — When Blake was in high school, he was so obsessed with my dad that the teachers called him “Achy Blakey” because he would do everything that my dad did.
And he was ruined the minute he told me that because now he’s just a poser, you know? -Yeah. Exactly. -And now I’m going to bring in the real deal, and I’m really excited about that. -Yeah. Exactly. This is Achy Blakey. -Yeah. Now, your new album — your new album is coming later this year. We don’t know. People just drop albums now. We don’t say when. -I don’t even know when. -We don’t even know when. Is that right? You just don’t — -I kind of know when, but kind of don’t. I can’t decide. -Good.
Don’t. -Because I really want to make it the best that I can and it feels “done,” but I feel like every day, I’m learning more stuff. So I want to be able to, you know, put that on the record. -What is different from this sound and “Bangerz?” I would say just from knowing these two tracks… -Yeah. -…it’s very different. -Well, actually, what’s cool about this, too, is, like, right here, this is in Malibu, and right there, there’s in Nashville. My dad — That’s on my dad’s farm. And so I think spending more time at home that I got to, spending more time by the beach than I got to, and I think that I — Right now I just feel really — I don’t seem calm, but this is really calm for me.
I feel very calm and very, like, peaceful. -You are calm. Yeah. -Yeah. -Wow. -Yeah. -That’s great. And you’re getting to — -So I hope people get to see that, because with “Bangerz,” too, I never tried to prove anything or not be myself. Any time I say I’m being myself whether I look like this or look completely different or I’m a panda, that is myself. I’m always being myself, you know? So it just depends what that is. And don’t ever change. Yeah..
