Miley Cyrus on Why She Loves Weed, Went Wild at the VMAs and Much More

Cyrus has become one of the most ubiquitous stars in pop music over the last few months thanks to the Bangerz hits "Wrecking Ball" and "We Can't Stop," her controversial performance with Robin Thicke at the VMAs, her hosting and musical guest appearance on Saturday Night Live, and her cover of Rolling Stone.

2013 has also been kind to newcomers Icona Pop and Ferreira; the latter just released her official full-length debut, Night Time, My Time, after years of delays. In a recent chat with Rolling Stone, she talked about her bourgeoning friendship with Cyrus, which began over Twitter. "It was nice to be around someone who wasn't competitive — girls can be so competitive — or worried about how to act," Ferreira said after meeting Cyrus at the Bangerz release party. "She didn't care about who I was, someone who wasn't judging me for once."

As for Icona Pop, the duo scored a massive hit this year with their club anthem "I Love It," which also appeared on the Swedish duo's debut, This Is… Icona Pop. Member Aino Jawo told Rolling Stone that she met bandmate Caroline Hjelt at a party when they were both going through rough patches in their lives. "When we met, we just felt so empowered and felt that we could do anything," Hjelt said. "The problems that we had were just gone. The next day, we wrote our first song together."

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
