If Miley Cyrus
sounds angry on her latest single and video, "7 Things
," that was her intention, says the teen sensation.
"The word 'hate' could describe how angry I am," Cyrus told Ryan Seacrest
Wednesday on his KIIS-FM
The song, in which Cyrus ticks off a list of things she hates in a boy she loves, was something that just poured out of the 15-year-old during a rare moment alone on her tour bus.
"[It goes] through all the different stages of what's been going on the past couple years," she said. "It was like a little therapy moment for me."
Asked if worried about possibly offending a former boyfriend, Disney’s Hannah Montana
star proved undaunted.
"I want them to be upset. That was my point," she said. "I was a little worried, but I'm excited that I just did it."
Cyrus skirted around the topic of alleged ex-boyfriend
Nick Jonas and insists that the song's not about a specific person – such as a backup dancer she denies she is dating.
"No way," she said of the dancer. "We're all best friends, just really close and goofing around."
