Is the world ready for an "edgier" Miley Cyrus?
The 17 year-old singer and Hannah Montana star told British morning show GMTV that she is presently at work on "my last pop record." After that, she says, "I kinda want this to be my last record for a little while and … take a break."
During that breather, she says she wants to explore other musical styles and create "something edgier." Perhaps the singer will catch up on hip-hop: she recently admitted that she's "never heard a Jay-Z song" despite name-checking him in her hit single "Party in the USA."
"In a few years, as I grow up, so will my fans," Cyrus reasons. "I'll be able to have more of the sound of music that I'm into."
The star has already grown up in front of the world: when she met Queen Elizabeth on Monday, she turned heads with a low-cut, cleavage-bearing dress; last Thursday, shots of her at a hotel pool in Florida revealed a new tattoo with the message "Just Breathe."
