Promoting Woody Allen's Amazon series, Miley Cyrus (wow all those words look weird together) was featured on the cover of Elle magazine. Remarkably candid and refreshingly articulate, Cyrus talks everything from her double life on Hannah Montana to her pansexuality.

Here are two of the juiciest parts of the profile.

On being a Disney Channel star

Even though my dad was in the industry, he so wasn't. But he was very smart—we have a huge farm in Nashville that he bought for nothing, and now it's, like, a music capital. But I did not grow up spoiled in any way. I just wanted to be on TV. I mean, at one point—they'll probably kill me for saying it—I was probably the least paid person on my [Hannah Montana] cast because I didn't know any better. I was just like, I can be on Disney! Yeah, I want to do it! My name was Miley on my show, but I didn't own my name—we didn't think about that. Like, Yeah, you can use my name on your show, sure! My mom started understanding how many people take advantage of a child, so she hired smart people to protect me in that way. I'm happy that when I was younger, people protected me and put me in a position where I can now control my music.
