With a hit single with Labrinth already on the airwaves and debut album NC-17 on the way, Noah Cyrus is conquering the charts on her own terms. Noah Cyrus is unmistakable as she walks in: big, bright eyes and dark, tousled hair in a haphazard half-ponytail. She’s wearing what seems to be a signature look – a spaghetti strap crop top, a rhinestone choker, distressed denim and platform shoes. Draped casually off-shoulder is a jacket with pink faux shearling lining. She greets us smiling with arms extended, while giggling about perhaps being overdressed for the occasion and telling us how her car ran out of gas that morning.
She seems like a typical teenager, but Cyrus has already accomplished more in her career than she could have ever expected. She’s recorded with notable musicians such as Dan Wilson and Digital Farm Animals. The duet she shares with Labrinth, Make Me (Cry), has gone gold in multiple countries – and platinum in others – with the official video already garnering over 61 million views. Not bad for a 17 year old.
Cyrus feels like she “de nitely grew up more this past year. During the process of making NC-17, I had a boyfriend, so a lot of the songs are about my breakup. I was really sad after and realised it was a big mistake, because I didn’t realise how happy I was in the moment and that I took it for granted.” She’s channelled these emotions into her writing: “My favourite line of Almost Famous is ‘When you’ve got a good thing, you should hold it.’ That’s a really personal line to me.”
