As everyone has noticed over the past few years, Miley Cyrus has “ditched the squeaky-clean image and long blonde hair of her Disney days.” V magazine is celebrating Cyrus’ new look and new sound with its latest cover.

Shot by Mario Testino, the cover and the images inside the issue show off the increasingly sexy side of Miley. Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele styled the star in leather, studs, and spikes, but also made sure Cyrus showed off plenty of skin. In one image, Miley looks like a “pilates instructor” while showing off her toned abs in a sports bra. She gets even more scandalous in an image that reveals underboob in a rolled-up shirt emblazoned with her name. In another shot, Cyrus rolls her shorts down to show off a portion of her bare backside.

During her interview with the publication, Miley opens up about her new look, her relationship with fiancé Liam Hemsworth, and what it’s like to work with Pharrell Williams, who’s helping to produce her newest hip-hop-infused songs.

Cyrus and Williams both insist the singer’s new look isn’t shocking because “she already was that.” Miley has simply become more open about who is really is and how she wants to look. Cyrus states,

“I’m going to change, I’m going to be different, I’m going to do what I want to do. I chopped my hair and bought a pair of Docs and never looked back.”

Pharrell has stuck by her side her through the whole process, encouraging her to free herself and be more comfortable in her own skin.

As for her much-talked-about relationship with Liam, Miley says she doesn’t have time to pay attention to all the speculation surrounding their engagement. She insists the only reason they’re not together all the time is that they work. She’d love to wake up and go to Starbucks with him every morning, but the couple’s conflicting schedules don’t allow it. Just because the paparazzi doesn’t capture the couple out and about very often doesn’t mean they’re not together though. Miley says she’d rather spend quiet time at home with Liam when they get the chance to.

Miley makes it seem like everyone close to her loves her makeover, but what do you think of it? Take a look at a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot and some of the images from V and tell us what you think of the edgy images!
