Just in a few years Miley Cyrus transformed form a lovely Disney sweetheart to an extravagant and wild singer. And even though the world is talking about her wild antics, the 20-year-old pop star opens up to Cosmopolitan’s December issue that she still feels like she’s “kind of an underdog.”

“Everything is so chaotic and crazy right now and it’s so much all at once, but I’m living for it. I’m just having the best time ever and everything’s falling into place like it’s supposed to,” Cyrus tells the magazine. “Even people who want to hate on me, they can’t even shut down the fact that I’m literally what everyone is talking about.”

“I don’t want to say that I’m on top right now -– I feel like I’m kind of an underdog in a cool way,” she continues, adding her two cents about society’s view on her. “It’s almost punk rock to like me because it’s not the right thing to do. Like, society wants to shut me down.”

In a new interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, the 20-year-old also chats frankly about her split with The Hunger Games actor.

“I need to treat my music like a relationship – give it my time and all the attention it deserves – and that’s my main love right now,” she says.

Since her failed engagement to Hemsworth, there was speculation about Cyrus being linked to producer Mike Will Made It and even rumored to be carrying rapper Juicy J’s baby. But regardless of what may or may not be factual the singer is thankful for having a higher power to back her.

“This is the best time of my life. I’m not going to look back on it and be like, ‘I wish I hadn’t been dwelling over a breakup,’ you know? Because that’s not what God wants my life to be about right now. God wants my life to be about being successful and being happy and blessing other people and being blessed.”

In addition to opening up about Liam, Cyrus also confronted the critics who didn’t care for her performance on MTV’s Video Music Awards.

“I don’t really care. I think everyone would have given anything to be me at that moment, because I was being one hundred percent true to myself…and not many people can say that.”

She said that “the VMAs would have been bad” without her. “They would have been missing something.” The singer explains that she just made fun of the serious pop industry.

Former Disney star Miley said: “The biggest misconception about me is that I like the media attention. I wish I could be who I am without the fame.”

“If everyone would still buy my records and if everything would go to No.1 in 30 seconds or whatever… that’d be great.”

Miley claims that fame is simply a nasty by-product of the career that she has chosen, but the Wrecking Ball singer insists that if given an option, she would always want to become an entertainer.

“I live without any regrets – you can’t change anything, so I don’t think about it.”
