Miley on Stardom, Friends, Nick, and Justin

In Glamour's May 2009 issue, Miley Cyrus talks about her career and her personal life..

Do you think your fame have given you a different perspective? I was talking with my mom one day, and I said that I would not change the way I grew up for anything.

Yes, I am really overwhelmed. I went to the Oscars for the first time when I was 13. Then I had my first real relationship; it was hard-core and lasted two years [With Nick Jonas]. That's a life-changing experience most people don't have until they're 19 or 20. So my life has been on high speed. [My career] is a
huge responsibility.

Do you worry that your boyfriend is so much older? I don't feel like I'm doing anything wrong, and I'm ready for people to accept it. My fans already accept it, they just want me to be happy. And I haven't been that happy in a few years working so hard, moving to LA from Nashville, going through a bad..

..breakup [with Nick Jonas]. I'm finally happy again, and I think that is reflected in my music and my work. So honestly, I don't feel like there's anything to hide. And I love him so much I don't really care.

What have you've learned from your mistakes? I've learned how to respect myself and how to say no. I've learned who I can really trust. I have 200 or 300 friends, but I probably trust four. When I read something in the tabloids and it's from an 'insider,' I want to know who thinks they're on the 'inside.'

Because I can count on one hand the people who really know me. There's my best friend, Mandy; I can tell her anything without being judged. There's Jason Earles, who's on my show, he's like a big brother to me.

There's my big sister, Brandi. And the best thing that's happened to me in a long, long time has been meeting Justin [Gaston], because he's the most respectful and selfless person I've ever known.
