Miley Cyrus - Miley Cyrus' image was inspired by Britney Spears

Miley Cyrus says Britney Spears inspired her edgier style.

The former 'Hannah Montana' star claimed Britney's 2001 video for 'I'm a Slave 4 U' - which featured the singer taking a step towards a more mature image - influenced her own progression.

Speaking on UK talk show 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man', she revealed: ''I was obsessed with her 'Slave 4 U' video.

''That was the first head shake I got from my dad when the video came out, as I tried to re-enact the whole film.

''Britney once performed across the street from my dad's apartment in Canada - but there was no way I was going at that point as I was always trying to re-enact everything she did.''

Miley recently caught everyone's attention with a raunchy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, and she has hit back at critics who deemed it too offensive.

She said: ''I thought the spirit of the VMAs was missing. It was supposed to be about celebrating your video.

''You knew Robin Thicke and I were not going to do the 'Hokey Cokey'.

''It was supposed to be a silly night ... I didn't think about the reaction until the next morning when I realised the whole world was going crazy.''
