V Magazine just spoke with Miley Cyrus on her recent entry into the art game. All those toys, bracelets, and that giant technicolored bong are actually statues that are part of an installment, one that will make its debut at Jeremy Scott's spring 2015 show on Thursday, September 10. Mystery solved. Scott told V:
We're on the same wavelength—it's like a psychedelic jungle. All of these stream of consciousness, colorful, playful, whimsical things mixed up together. I love that there's a DIY feel to the sculptures, which is a part of the look of the show. I want it to be less about a model army and more about a group of cool, individualized people hanging out together.
The feeling is mutual. Miley explained:
Jeremy brought a lot of peace and self worth to me because even though to some people, it was just me gluing some things together, to me, it made me not a fucking pop star dumbass. And that's my goal in my life: to not die a pop pop dumb dumb. I can't. I will freak out. I just wanted to give myself something I can work at, and even now, if I had more time and I wasn't on tour, I know I could outdo any of this because I've grown while doing it.
Check out the rest of the colorful interview right here and look for a dozen or so pieces on Jeremy Scotts runway. They'll be hard to miss.
