Interview: Mike WiLL Made It On Miley Cyrus’ VMA Performance: ‘[She’s] The New Madonna’


“Miley Cyrus is the new Madonna,” Mike WiLL Made It proclaimed on the set of his new video, “23,” which also features the singer, Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa.

The chart-topping producer truly believes in the former Disney star’s talent. While on set in Brooklyn, Mike gave VIBE his honest thoughts on Miley’s much-talked about MTV VMA performance.

“She did her thing… a lot of people are scared. She’s young, she’s 20, and she had fun. [Miley] turnt up,” he says. “When you’re on top, you’re going to get flack for anything. At least she went up there and had fun and did what she wanted to do. She went up there and did her vision. That’s what it’s really all about.”

After accompanying her to the awards show at the Barclays Center on Sunday night (Aug. 27), the two spent the next day on set at Brooklyn’s Bishop Ford High School to film their new video.

Mike WiLL Made It’s upcoming album, Est. In 1989 Pt. 3., is set to drop later this year.
