Miley Cyrus is to take a hiatus from music - so she can drop her teen pop star image and concentrate on a rockier sound.
The 17-year-old Disney star is sick of clean-cut songs and is planning to give her music a drastic make-over.
And she's decided the best way to prepare her fans for an edgier sound is by taking a break from recording altogether.
She tells British TV show GMTV, "I want to do my last pop record, I'm working on a record right now. I kinda (sic) want this to be my last record for a little while and be able to take a break and just get all the types of music that I really love... you know my favourite styles. And be able have something edgier and not have to worry about people saying, 'Oh, this isn't what her fans want to listen to.' Because in a few years, as I grow up, so will my fans and I won't have to focus on that as much and I'll be able to have more of the sound of music that I'm into."
