Miley Cyrus as a college co-ed? It isn’t as far off as you think. The twerking, tongue-wagging singer tells Rolling Stone that she considered going to a university to study photography before she decided to make a comeback with her music career.
“Once I ended [Hannah Montana], I thought I might go to NYU or something and study photography. Or to Savannah—they’ve got a really good school in Savannah,” Miley says. “I love photography. I have a Canon 5D. I want to co-direct something soon. When they’re saying, ‘Change this lens to this millimeter,’ I want to know what they’re talking about.”
The 20-year-old looked to some unlikely role models when considering the campus life – Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who briefly attended New York University. “I’m never going to be able to go to school and have the normal life,” she admits.
“I kind of like the way Mary-Kate and Ashley did it. They were bajillionaires from being these kid stars, and they decided that that wasn’t the future that they wanted. So they did fashion, and they kind of blended in at NYU. I don’t think people bug them. I think in New York, it’s not cool to care.”
