(USA TODAY) -- Miley Cyrus is finally addressing all the chatter about her relationship with fiancé Liam Hemsworth in the new, May issue of V magazine.
"I'm not home with my boyfriend all the time. We work. Every week it's 'Are they broken up? Because we don't see a photo of them,' " she says.
A passionate Miley goes on to say, "I don't have time to go to Starbucks with my boyfriend every morning. I wish I did, but I don't. I'd rather chill at my house and be there for the time I actually get to spend with him."
She adds, "And then I'm at the studio all day. He gets up to work out at six and I come home at five from the studio. I put this record before everything, and I've never done that with anything. I've put too much into this record to put anything else in front of it."
The tri-fold cover of the mag is the beginning of an edgy photo spread (one shows off a good part of her bare backside) that goes with a Q&A with Pharrell Williams, who is producing her new album out this summer.
Some of her other quotes:
On working with Pharrell: "Then I met Pharrell, and it was the first time I was in the studio just being really free. Pharrell opened that door. At the end of the day its what me and P are making ... I could keep doing this forever, just making this record."
On her ever-evolving style: "I'm going to change, I'm going to be different, I'm going to do what I want to do. I chopped my hair and bought a pair of Docs and never looked back."
Miley on her new sound: "I can never say that I don't love Party in the U.S.A. and that I'm not appreciative of it. It would be like my dad saying that he hated Achy Breaky. It's what gives you everything that you have. I would never take it back."
On getting out of her Disney persona: "In my mind I'm Gucci Mane, but on paper I'm a pop artist."
As if to prove her point, Miley is also popping up on the Web today in photos that show her pumping gas in short shorts, high heels and a T-shirt that says Sex, Drugs & Rap.
