In her latest Interview magazine cover story, Miley Cyrus has spoken out about embracing her unique voice and disregarding societal expectations for how women should sing. The talented artist, now 28 years old, has experienced a lifetime of criticism for her lower vocal range, with producers often pressuring her to use falsetto in order to sound more feminine.

Miley Cyrus expressed her sense of freedom while performing Metallica’s popular track “Nothing Else Matters.” She shared her feelings with the band’s drummer, Lars Ulrich, about how recording from the comfort of her home allowed her to sing the way she wanted.

Criticism: The 28-year-old musician lamented about being criticized her 'whole life' for her lower vocal register, with producers constantly demanding falsetto out of her because they associated it with femininity

The musician who is 28 years old expressed her frustration about receiving criticism throughout her life due to her lower vocal range. She mentioned how producers would always ask for falsetto from her because they linked it with femininity.

During a recent interview, the singer emphasized the significance of maintaining authenticity in her vocals as singing is her primary mode of self-representation and expression. She revealed that she has encountered numerous individuals who have suggested the involvement of another singer to hit high notes during her performances. She went on to explain that the term ‘falsetto’ originated from Latin, referring to the practice of keeping boys with breaking voices in choirs. According to her, it essentially means ‘false.’

Seeking falsetto: 'My whole life, whether in vocal training or just continuing to hone my craft, it's always been about, 'Why do you sound like a man? Where's your f***ing falsetto, b****? Why can't you sing the high octave of 'Party in the U.S.A.' anymore?' she recalled; Miley seen performing Part In The USA in 2009

In her pursuit of perfecting her vocal skills, Miley Cyrus has always been challenged to find her falsetto. People have questioned why she can’t sing the high octave of “Party in the U.S.A.” anymore and why she sounds like a man. However, Miley embraces who she is and speaks her mind even if it changes tomorrow. She was grateful for the opportunity to not sing the song in the way females are “supposed” to. Miley’s rendition of “Nothing Else Matters” can be found on The Metallica Blacklist tribute album, which features various artists such as Elton John, J Balvin, and Cage The Elephant. In her performance, Miley takes off her gloves and unleashes her vocal prowess towards the end of the song.

Is who she is: 'I am who I am. I say what I mean in the moment, even if that changes tomorrow. I was honored by the fact that I didn't have to sing this song in the way that females are

She embraces her true self: “I am simply me. I express my thoughts honestly at the present moment, even if they alter in the future. It was a privilege for me to not conform to the traditional way females are expected to perform this song,” she shared with the publication.

The particular segment of the melody seems to capture the attention of listeners. It’s when I use my lower vocal range that people really get drawn in, and as a result, I am appreciative to have a tune where I can showcase that aspect of my voice. In November 2019, Cyrus had to undergo a surgery on her vocal cords due to an ailment called Reinke’s edema, which is characterized by the degeneration of one or both vocal folds within Reinke’s space. During a Joe Rogan Experience interview in 2020, Miley revealed that she had noticed a significant alteration in her voice over the course of a year, with the sound taking on a more profound quality.
