With Miley Cyrus' name still on everyone's lips following her controversial VMA performance and appearing in the buff in her recent "Wrecking Ball" video, the timing couldn't be better for MTV to air a documentary about the former Disney star.
The trailer for Miley: The Movement was just released and features some candid talk from the pop star. It also includes a scene in which she cracks up Britney Spears. While chatting in the studio before her VMA performance, Cyrus tells the "Gimme More" singer, "Everyone takes the VMAs so serious. I just wanna come out and shoot a hot dog gun," and Spears collapses into a fit of giggles.
Not surprisingly, Cyrus also boasts that she was "born to become who I am like right now," adding, "Right now I'm at a point in my career where I can become exactly what I want to be, who I want to be."
Cyrus also points out that she has the freedom to do whatever she wants because she's "starting as a new artist now." So it appears that Cyrus is further driving home the point that she's no longer the sweet, young Hannah Montana character that made her famous – as if her sheared blond haircut, tongue-wagging and twerking antics weren't reminder enough.
Of course, Cyrus is no dummy when it comes to self-promotion. "You're always gonna make people talk," she says. "You might as well make them talk for like two weeks rather than two seconds."
That said, there are a few scenes that show a slightly "softer" side of Cyrus, such as when she snuggles up to her mother, compliments a fan, and admits that she's nervous as a mother-f***er" as she's about to take the stage at the VMAs. Check out the trailer below.
Miley: The Movement premieres on MTV Wednesday, October 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
