There was only love when Miley Cyrus met Joan Jett and the two sat down for a chat. Cyrus had to interview Joan, her idol, for V Magazine‘s upcoming “Heroes” issue, a feat that made the young ‘un quite nervous understandably. She told Jett about how and where her admiration for The Runaways rocker stems from, saying, “…When you came out people were shocked that there was a chick that wanted to rock as hard as the guys.” She also added, “I love that you never apologized for who you were. It’s something I had to learn. … I’m sick of feeling as if I owe someone an apology for being who I am.”
Jett, in return, also encouraged Cyrus for having the courage to be a young star in today’s pop climate. She replied, “I was thinking to myself … how difficult it must be to lead your life as a teenager with the paparazzi and the amount of press you’re surrounded by. I thought to myself, ‘Wow that was kind of a blessing that we didn’t have that stuff when I was growing up in The Runaways’.” She makes a point because stars are under way more intense scrutiny these days than ever before. We can’t wait to see more of the interview in the issue!
