The 'We Can't Stop' hitmaker, who recently shocked fans with her racy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, said she struggles taking much-needed breaks from work, reported Contactmusic. "I'm messed up... I have so many issues.
Everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up. I don't have a normal life. I take a hiatus every now and again but I'm not good at that," she said. The 20-year-old star rose to fame with the lead role in "Hannah Montana" but said she was never like the clean-cut character she portrayed on the Disney Channel show.
"During 'Hannah Montana' I think people knew I was acting. I've never been able to hide anything, a bit like Justin Bieber. Others who have been on kids' shows try to act like their characters - but I'm not like that. "I never pretended I was as good as the Disney Channel writes.
You will be amazed at some of the notes I got... It's crazy. But they can't make people not grow up," she added.
