Los Angeles - Miley Cyrus wants fans to treat her new album like a movie.

The 20-year-old singer is preparing for the release of her latest record Bangerz and she has insisted it is a lot more artistic than people might expect, adding she wants people to "fall in love" with her as a narrator.

"I want people to think of the album like a movie. You have to fall in love with the character who's narrating so, when things go wrong for her and she is singing about pain and sadness, like in Wrecking Ball, you are connected to her, rooting for her - willing her to win, of course while keeping it fun and moving, but drawing listeners in so that after the tears comes laughter."

Huge success in music career

The former Hannah Montana star has seen huge success in her musical career after her hit Wrecking Ball achieved 19.3 million views on music video site Vevo only 24 hours after it was released.

Miley insisted this validates her drastic and raunchy image change because she is striving to "not fit into" any set labels. She told the Mail on Sunday newspaper's You magazine, "I am an entertainer. What would be the point if I looked like every other singer out there?"

"Being young, it's important for me to learn and grow and not fit into a box ... I'm always thinking about what I'm going to do next. I broke the record and now I want to break it in double time."
