Miley Cyrus hasn't let a little criticism get her down. In fact, in the newly released trailer for her MTV documentary, Cyrus shows just how she's using that controversy to transform herself into the artist she always wanted to be.
In a brand new minute-and-a-half ad for "Miley: The Movement," the pop star can be seen trying to reinvent herself from tween sensation to her current controversial persona.
Calling her journey "completely insane," Cyrus says that, "Right now, I'm in a point in my career where I can be exactly what I want to be, who I want to be."
The documentary, which premieres October 2 on MTV, gives a glimpse into Cyrus' professional and personal life, and the reasoning behind her controversial MTV VMA's performance: "You're always going to make people talk. You might as well make them talk for like two weeks, rather than two seconds," she says.
Ahead of her now infamous VMA performance, we see Cyrus telling Britney Spears, "Everyone takes the VMAs so serious. I just wanna come out and shoot a hot dog gun."
Shedding her good-girl image, Cyrus proclaims in the trailer that she's not being held back by her past experience as an artist: "I have this freedom to do whatever I want because I'm starting as a new artist now."
