Miley Cyrus Thanks Her Hero Joan Jett

Finding that she has much in common with her musical idol, Miley Cyrus recently met up with iconic rocker Joan Jett for a gush-filled interview with V magazine.
While "The Climb" songstress admitted to having nerves before their initial introduction, she quickly delved into the reasons why she nominated Joan for the September "Heroes" edition of the publication.

"People see me as this perfect Disney star, and the moment I put out a record that says 'I'm not 11 years old anymore,' people look down on me. That's why I have always looked up [to] you. When you came out people were shocked that there was a chick that wanted to rock as hard as the guys," Miley told Joan/
Jett then told Cyrus in return, "I was thinking to myself ... how difficult it must be to lead your life as a teenager with the paparazzi and the amount of press you're surrounded by. I thought to myself, 'Wow that was kind of a blessing that we didn't have that stuff when I was growing up in The Runaways.' "
Miley later added, "I love that you never apologized for who you were. It's something I had to learn. ... I'm sick of feeling as if I owe someone an apology for being who I am."
