Miley Cyrus has caught the attention of many with her shocking performances and outlandish music videos, including Elton John.
The music legend said that he’s concerned about where Cyrus is headed.
“I look at Miley Cyrus and I see a meltdown waiting to happen,” John said. “And she’s so young! But she’s got two records in the top 20, so who is going to stop her?”
On September 16, Cyrus confirmed that she called off her engagement to Liam Hemsworth who she had been on and off dating since 2010. Apparently Hemsworth is embarrassed by Cyrus’ “hypersexual, rebellious new look.”
Cyrus, however, claims that she grew up too fast.
“I was an adult when I was supposed to be a kid,” the former Disney star said. “So now I’m an adult and I’m acting like a kid.”
If kids sing about drugs and sit naked atop of wrecking balls, that is.
John worries not only about Cyrus, but Lady Gaga as well.
“With Gaga – who I love, she’s the godmother to our children – I’d like to be able to talk to her right now, but I can’t get through to her,” he said. “And there are times when you have to listen. When your persona begins to take over your music and becomes more important, you enter a dangerous place. Once you have people around you who don’t question you, you’re in a dangerous place.”
Interestingly, Gaga defended Cyrus just last week to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.
“I just think everyone has to lighten up and leave her alone. Because it’s pop music, everybody is entitled to their own artistic expression. And if you have a problem with it, change the channel,” Gaga said. “She’s growing up in front of the entire world, and maybe she’s not so happy with the things that she did in her career when she was younger and she wants to be free. So let her do what she wants!”
