    Miley Cyrus covers the new issue of V, out May 9, and she shows off lots of boobs and butt. However, she does say some important stuff in her feature about how she's ditching her Hannah Montana image but that she doesn't regret that time in her life, since it allows her the freedom to be able to do what she wants right now, which is work with producer Pharrell Williams.

    "Pharrell was the first person I wanted to work with. I had so many different producers and managers and all of these people coming to my house because I didn't know where I wanted to start," Cyrus said. "My record would have come out like a high school mixtape with these different songs and feelings that don't blend. Then I met Pharrell, and it was the first time I was in the studio just being really free. Pharrell opened that door. At the end of the day, it's what me and P are making. And of course we're so grateful for the people that got us here, that brought us to each other, and now we're on our own path. I've never been more thankful for someone in my life. It's just crazy. It's been almost a year since we started, and my life has been completely different. I could keep doing this forever, just making this record."

    She also reflected on her Disney past, saying, "No one let me sing the way that Pharrell does, which is to just go in and do your shit and do all of the harmonies that you do, which is what brings it to where I'm from. Which is being from Nashville and being around Dolly [Parton, her godmother] and listening to her sing. No one would give me the chance to say, 'Turn the Auto-Tune off, turn the filter off, and just listen to what I'm saying.'" She continued, "He was the first person that ever did that. I can never say that I don't love 'Party in the U.S.A.' and that I'm not appreciative of it. It would be like my dad saying that he hated 'Achy Breaky.' It's what gives you everything that you have. I would never take it back. But that's not who I am, that's not where I want to sing, that's not what I want to sing, and that's not what I want my voice to sound like, because you can't hear me through there. I like that Rihanna has a tone of her own. Beyoncé has a tone of her own. I have a tone of my own. Everything else is just blending into one club mix—but we keep our 808s in there because I love them."
