(Newser) – The tattoo was only the beginning: Miley Cyrus is ready to shed her pop ways and do "something edgier." The 17-year-old told a British TV show the pop album she's currently working on is "my last for a little while." Up next? A break, during which she'll explore other styles and hopefully change her bubblegum sound. "In a few years, as I grow up, so will my fans," says Cyrus. "I'll be able to have more of the sound of music that I'm into."

In the interview, Hannah Montana's alter ego also chats about meeting Queen Elizabeth, which she did on Monday in what Us Weekly notes was a very cleavage-baring dress. "I'm totally excited," she said. "I think it's going to be, like, really awesome. It's a very historical event."
