Miley's image was inspired by Britney

Los Angeles - 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."
