Miley’s Last Song?

In an interview with “Parade” last week, Miley Cyrus said that although country music may run in her family, going the achy breaky heart route is not for her. Yesterday the pop star told the ladies of “The View” that she plans on stepping back from music, regardless of the genre.

“I have a record coming out in June and that’s going to be the last thing I do in music for a while,” Cyrus said, according to “I just want to do films ‘cause I like being someone else. My music is kind of like my diary. I’ll always do that … I just feel like the music industry isn’t as positive as I’d like it do be.”

The comment reiterated what the 17-year-old singer/actress told Teen Vogue in a story published earlier this month.

“The more I make music that doesn’t truly inspire me, the more I feel like I’m blending in with everyone else,” she told the teen magazine. “So after this next album, I’m taking some time off.”

And why isn’t the country music scene for her?

“It scares me, that’s why,” Cryus told Parade. It feels contrived on so many levels. Unless you’re wearing a cowboy hat and cowboy boots and singing and whining about your girlfriend or boyfriend leaving you it’s not going to sell. I think that’s why my dad finally got out of it. You have to wear those cowboy boots and be sweet as pie. It makes me nervous, the politics of it all.”

Although she plans on taking a break from her own music career, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have time to help advise other superstar hopefuls. Fans can catch Cyrus on tonight’s episode of “American Idol” as this week’s guest mentor. After giving tips to the 11 remaining season nine finalists, Cyrus will perform “When I Look At You” on Wednesday’s results show. The tune is featured in the trailer for Cyrus’ upcoming film, “The Last Song.”

Wednesday’s show will also feature performances from Jonas Brothers‘ Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato.

The Nicholas Sparks film “The Last Song” hits theatres March 31. In May Cyrus will be on the big screen once again with her cameo (as herself) in “Sex and the City 2.” According to the New York Daily News, she will also be featured as the lead in the 2011 film adaptation of the Aprilynne Pike novel “Wings.”

Back in 2006, Cyrus first made a name for herself by starring on the hit Disney show “Hannah Montana.”  The fourth and final season of the show is expected to wrap in early 2011, according to US Magazine.

Cyrus is the “youngest-ever multi-platinum artist to have four No. 1 albums in less than three years,” according to a press release by Fox and reported by CNN.
