Miley Cyrus On Snoop Dogg Friendship, Getting High & Hiring Fan

Miley Cyrus, in a ski hat, visits Jimmy Kimmel Live

Miley Cyrus appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Tuesday night (June 25) for an interview and the first live performance of her new single ‘We Can’t Stop’. The former ‘Hannah Montana’ star also performed ‘Fall Down’, joined on stage by will.i.am.

During the interview, Miley talked about her collaboration with Snoop Dogg. “I started hanging out with him in the studio and I worked with Diplo a little bit and they worked on their project when they were making the movie. They had sent me ‘Ashtrays’ and I really liked the song. Not ashtrays, the song is called ‘Ashtrays and Heartbreaks’, and we ended up doing that together and we just kind of became the homie. He’s been really involved. He comes by the studio and listens to my music, he’s involved and he’s excited about what I’m doing with my career, so that’s cool.”

Asked if she and Snoop socialize, Miley said, “We’re more alike than you’d think. We’re very similar. He actually said that.” When Kimmel said it’s because he’s “so high he doesn’t even know what his name is”, Miley said, “Me too, so it’s fine. We both are. That’s how we get along so well I guess.”

On giving her number to one of her biggest fans and if hiring her “stalker” was a good idea, Miley said, “She’s more than a stalker. She’s so obsessed that she knows things about how to break VEVO records, which we did with her help, and I don’t know anything. I don’t YouTube or whatever. She knows what has to be done in what amount of time to be #1 or to break the record. When I first called her, I called her off my friend’s phone. Then I just started texting her all the time. I bet she gets more annoyed of me than I do of her. I hit her up all the time. I’m like, ‘Yo, how are we gonna make this happen? You gotta make the fans trend this. You gotta do that’.”

Miley Cyrus Cautions Against Death Threats, Prompting More “Die” Tweets

Miley Cyrus with her dog Zigz

Miley Cyrus is reacting to messages that were hoping for her death on Twitter, telling her followers (@MileyCyrus) earlier today that supporting artists for their music rather than threatening rivals is the better way to go. Miley pointed out fans of Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez in the cautionary advice. The messages that likely prompted the concern:

Oh? (@iPraiseSwift): @MileyCyrus @katyperry I HOPE U BOTH GET CANCER AND DIE

(@lanadelreycu**): @MileyCyrus ugly dyke get cancer and die.

Luis Sdaewa (@LuisSdaewa): @MileyCyrus this world is full of sh** like you, please kill yourself ugly bitch

The pop singer and actress said in response:

Miley Cyrus (@MileyCyrus): Everyday someone with a Swift or Gomez in there name wishes terrible things upon me (death is popular) Please Smilers don’t ever think somehow you are supporting me by being hateful towards other artist. My fans make me proud by supporting my music & everything I do.

I’m sure these haters would make their idols much happier tweeting bout their music rather than wishing death upon their peers like psychos.

Btw im not saying Smilers can’t act cray cray too. #deaththreats #TOOOOFAR

But Miley’s plea seems to be having the opposite reaction, both from her haters and Miley’s fans ignoring her plea to not make similar threats and ratcheting up their frequency:

Kristen Simunovich (@xkristenn07): @MileyCyrus FU** THEM I WILL LITERALLY KILL THEM ALL

Stephanie (@FatStephanie): “@MileyCyrus: Btw im not saying Smilers can’t act cray cray too. #deaththreats #TOOOOFAR” I will kill u

Karma’s Revenge (@Natalia_Smiler): @mileycyrus I’m going to kill the next person who dares to disrespect you. #SelenaAndSelenatorsAreFinished.

Lana (@LanaDaiIy): @MileyCyrus go die

Boy Directioner (@freeasmydi**): @MileyCyrus I hope you die

Diego (@getn***dselena): @MileyCyrus hey slut die please :)

Cami Directioner (@HarryYLosOtros): @MileyCyrus DIE BITCH DIE FU**ING SLUT

Tina (@swaagjelena): @MileyCyrus DIE ;) your fans are the first who send terrible tweets to Selena, but u cant see that. Do not mention Selenators ANYMORE

Miley Cyrus turned to Twitter (@MileyCyrus) to angrily deny reports that she was seen out at Patys Restaurant with her former boyfriend Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers at a home near the former ‘Hannah Montana’ star’s home in Toluca Lake. Miley posted the following message before later deleting it:

I literally haven’t seen Nick Jonas in years. Don’t believe everything you read folks

Look at my profile pic. Look at my finger. Idiots. I couldn’t have “ran” into anyone because I haven’t went to eat out in public in weeks because of the amount of paparazzi outside my house.

Miley then added:

FOCUSED ON MUSIC & MUSIC ALONE.

The supposed Nick and Miley sighting follows reports that she and fiance Liam Hemsworth had split up, as the pair haven’t been seen out together in months.

Miley Cyrus Wants Changes In Wake Of Paparazzo Death In LA

Miley Cyrus, herself a frequent target of the paparazzi, reacted after the accidental killing of a photographer who had been chasing the Ferrari owned by Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber. There have been efforts by local lawmakers to control paparazzi in Los Angeles, where many have suggested criminals and organized crime members have infiltrated their ranks, threatening other snappers encroaching on their territory. The 20-year-old told her Twitter followers (@MileyCyrus):

Hope this paparazzi/JB accident brings on some changes in ’13 Paparazzi are dangerous! Wasn’t Princess Di enough of a wake up call?!

It is unfair for anyone to put this on to Justin’s conscious as well! This was bound to happen! Your mom teaches you when your a child not to play in the street! The chaos that comes with the paparazzi acting like fools makes it impossible for anyone to make safe choices.

Miley Cyrus On McLaren, ‘Two And A Half Men’ & Record Label Search

Miley Cyrus, seen here wearing no makeup with her cropped hairstyle, talks with 'Extra' about looking for a record label and appearing on 'Two and a Half Men'

‘Extra’ correspondent Mario Lopez caught up with Miley Cyrus, Pink and others at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. Miley showed off her engagement ring as the singer and actress is set to wed actor Liam Hemsworth and talked about a McLaren she’s been seen in with Liam and keeping busy with the new single, record label search, and a guest stint on ‘Two and a Half Men’.

Talking about the fancy car she and Liam had been cruising around in, Miley said, “It’s actually a fun little borrow. He actually just did this film this year called ‘Paranoia’, and he got to drive a McLaren, so we’ve got one speeding around town right now. They’re pretty fun. I’m not allowed to drive it, so you don’t have to worry about me. I don’t really want to. It’s a little (jerky). You’ve got to know how to drive, and I don’t know how to drive. I drive a hybrid. I don’t know how to mess with those powers and gears and all that.”

Talking about what she’s ready to do next, Cyrus said, “Right now I’m working getting a new single out, hopefully by November, which would be really good. I’m looking for a new label home right now. Everything has been crazy, all these labels have been so awesome and so supportive of the new styles. Mostly I’ve been working on new music and I’ve been doing ‘Two and a Half Men’, guest star for like fun, me and Ashton. It’s been really funny. Live comedy is just something that is really natural for me, to be in front of the audience. It reminded me of doing ‘SNL’ or something again, how quick they are. It’s weird, because Angus (T. Jones) started when he was about eight, and he’s like nineteen now, so you see that he was a little chubby baby and now he’s a tall kid. They’ve got it so quick, you do two scenes and you’re out. It’s the easiest work ever. Ashton is so good on it and so funny.”
