When looking at Miley Cyrus's transformation over the years from squeaky-clean teen to sexy -pop queen, it's easy to compare her transition to that of a young Britney Spears. Similar to Cyrus's "We Can't Stop" video, Spears made jaws drop with her performances and videos in the early 2000s, so it makes sense that when Cyrus needs advice and understanding she turns to the pop princess.
In an interview with Huffington Post UK, Cyrus said she and Spears have bonded over being the subjects of constant media attention and scrutiny. "Everyone goes through a time in their life where they don't want their picture taken every day," Cyrus said. "She just never had that time where she could say, 'I'm going through something right now and need to shut down.' I also don't have that, so it's good to have that one person in my life who gets it."
When it comes to dealing with the media, the 20-year-old "We Can't Stop" singer said it also helps to not read one's own reviews. "People that probably fall off are the people obsessed with Googling themselves and knowing what people are saying," Cyrus told the BBC earlier this week. "If I knew what people are saying about me, I'd probably hate myself. I don't look at that kind of stuff."
