The singer, who has teamed up with Pharrell Williams for the follow-up to 2010's Can't Be Tamed, revealed the story behind how they came to working together for the project.
"Pharrell said, 'Don't be offended because this is how I talk, but [I thought], that bitch is actually living. She's not sitting there with her Momager's chain on her door. I want to free that bitch. I want her out of her cage'," Cyrus told Marie Claire.
"I'd never worked like that before. I was talking to him like he was an older brother, and everything I said was going onto the track."
Cyrus added that she has recorded several songs with the producer, which are all heavily autobiographical.
"[I told my manager Bruce Flohr], 'I don't need the money. I don't care if I make a dime on this. Let me make a good record'. I got in there with Pharrell, and it was magic. Oh, dude, I'm so happy."
Cyrus recently joked that she spent an hour "stalking Zayn from One Direction" online while having a sleepover with gay friends.
