Miley to quit pop over politics in music industry

Posted on: April 10, 2010

Teen sensation Miley Cysrus has defended her decision to quit pop for movies, insisting she has grown disillusioned with the “contrived” music industry.

Since shooting to fame as schoolgirl pop star Hannah Montana on the hit Disney show with the same name, Cyrus has released three studio albums to date, and has announced that her fourth that comes out later this year will be her last.

The 17-year-old has moved on to serious acting with her first grown-up role in “The Last Song”, and has confirmed that she wants to concentrate on her movie career because she felt forced to step away from making music, as she grew tired of record label bureaucracy, reports contactmusic.com.

“I just feel like the industry is so contrived and political right now. If people stepped away and said, ‘We’re not going to work like this, it’s more about out art than the politics’, then maybe it would go back to being respected again,” she said.

“I’d rather be in an industry that I feel like I can be different in, and do things that really inspire me. It’s not that I don’t love music, I do. But I feel like I just need to get away from that for a little while,” she added.
