Miley Cyrus Talks About Race, Media Scrutiny, and Drugs in Outtakes From Her Rolling Stone Interview

Earlier this week, Rolling Stone released its latest issue, which included a cover story on Miley Cyrus. Yesterday, the magazine released outtakes to the interview they conducted with Miley. Although the cover story itself was quite informative, it appears that Miley had a lot to say throughout the interview, and let her thoughts out freely.

One of the highlights of the outtakes is Miley's stance on drug use. Not only did MIley admit to smoking marijuana, she was quite at ease praising the substance. "I think weed is the best drug on earth," Miley said. "Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And molly, too. Those are happy drugs – social drugs."

Miley was also asked about race in the context of the music she makes and her performance during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn. Recalling a conversation she had with producer Mike WiLL Made It, Miley said that she feels people are using double standards. For Mike, working with Miley is considered an achievement, while for Miley, working with a black producer is considered "ratchet."

Miley's much anticipated Bangerz drops October 8.
