“I’m nervous as a motherf*****. I ain’t gonna lie.”
This is how the trailer for Miley Cyrus’ new documentary, Miley: The Movement, airing October 2 on MTV, begins. And you can understand why she’d be a little apprehensive about revealing herself on camera. Especially when everything she does lately seems to spark controversy. Hello, video for “Wrecking Ball.”
The one-hour doc follows her through the recording of Bangerz and covers her recent appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards. There’s even a scene of Miley in the studio with Britney Spears–who will appear on Bangerz–commiserating with her about the VMAs and how people take it too seriously. “I just want to shoot a hot dog gun,” Miley says. “I just want to have fun.” Don’t we all.
Miley also talks about becoming a different kind of artist than she was in her Hannah Montana days. She tells the camera, “Right now I’m at a point in my career where I can be exactly what I want to be, who I want to be.”
And her fans love her for it. In the trailer, we see shots of Miley with her Smileys–some of which are in onesies–taking photos with their favorite star. Miley has a bigger plan for herself and her fans are certainly an integral part of that. And it seems that plan is to keep riding this crazy train as long as she can.
“You’re always going to make people talk,” she said. “You might as well make them talk for like two weeks rather than two seconds.”
Watch Miley: The Movement on October 2 at 10 pm EST on MTV.
