MILEY CYRUS SAYS 'WRECKING BALL' 'DOESN'T REFLECT' HER NOW: Leaving that wreck in the past. Miley Cyrus tells NME Magazine that while she's "never living down" the saucy video for her 2013 hit, and while she's definitely moved past her swinging on a wrecking ball and licking a sledgehammer days, she doesn't regret a thing. "I should be grateful every f-ing day for that song, and I am," Cyrus, 24, tells NME Magazine, on stands Friday. "I think people look at things that they've done and there is this sense of shame, or 'I wish I wouldn't have done that' - not because I'm naked, by the way. It's because I feel like I'm in a deeper songwriting place." Cyrus next album, Younger Now, is out September 29th. (People)
