(Newser) – Miley Cyrus sure knows how to grab our attention. With her MTV Video Music Awards hosting gig coming up on Aug. 30, she sat down with Marie Claire and let the words rip:

  • On industry prejudice: "There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it," she says. "Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he's cool. I do it and I'm a druggie whore."
  • On performers' mentality: "People in this industry think, I just gotta keep getting more money, and I'm like, What are you getting more money for? You probably couldn't even spend it all in this lifetime. ... It's a never-ending cycle."
  • On why she founded the Happy Hippie Foundation: "Lately, I've been talking a lot about my being gender-fluid and gender-neutral. And some people snarl at that. They want to judge me. People need more conventional role models, I guess."
  • On her lifestyle: "There's nothing left to catch me doing. You want to hack my e-mail so you can find my nude pictures? I'll just f**king put them up."
  • On the "Bad Blood" video by Taylor Swift: "I don't get the violence revenge thing. That's supposed to be a good example? And I'm a bad role model because I'm running around with my titties out? I'm not sure how titties are worse than guns."

A propos, Us Weekly dug up a quote from Swift after she had a cameo in Cyrus' Hannah Montana: The Movie back in 2009: "She is so outgoing and everything is big and huge and awesome," Swift said of her. "She doesn't hold anything back, which is one of my favorite things about her." Hmmm, still liking that, Taylor? (More attention-grabbing stuff from Cyrus: this racy W photoshoot.)
