Cyrus says wild-child behavior part of growing up

LONDON (AP) — Miley Cyrus' transformation from a sweet-faced child star into a twerking, wild-child sensation has garnered plenty of debate, but she says it's not really all that deep — she just grew up, y'all.

In a recent interview, she says she thinks people forget what it's like to be 20 and evolve. She says she thinks some people think she's some robot who changes with what's popular, but this is just who she is.

Cyrus has one of the summer's biggest hits with "We Can't Stop"; it's now No. 2 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. In the song's video, which has reached 100 million views on YouTube, Cyrus dances suggestively amid bizarre imagery, including a skull made of french fries. Cyrus says the video was inspired by her own life and the wild parties she's been at.
