Miley Cyrus hit some road blocks in 2010 — her salvia bong controversy and make-outs caught on tape tainted her image and her parents' divorce. But the 18-year-old continues to focus on her career and move forward, opening up to Marie Claire about her difficult times, image in the media and trying to keep her large fan base happy (no easy task).
"What I never wanted was for my fans to ever feel like I betrayed them... to feel like I said I was something, then turned around and was something that I'm not," she tells Marie Claire, via Celebuzz. "But I've never, ever claimed to be perfect. I mean, since I've started the show, I've always said, 'I'm gonna make mistakes.' I know this. And I think that that is one of the reasons why people related to me. Why kids related to me."
As for her parents, Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus' split, Miley shares, "Of course anyone is going to be upset when there are troubles in their family, but I have a lot of hope in our family, and no matter what happens, we’re gonna stay strong…I just want my mom to be happy and my dad to be happy and, most of all, my little sister to be happy.”
In other Miley news, rumors keep swirling that she has a new man in her life, So Undercover co-star Josh Bowman.
