Barbara Walters Interviews Miley Cyrus!
Tonight is the night! Tonight, is the Barbara Walters interview with Miley Cyrus and we find out why she is one of the most fascinating people of 2013! Now, Barbara has interview a lot of people in the past century, royalty, heads of state, even screen icons. But can any of them twerk as good as Miley… I don’t think so! The “Adore You” singer is just one of several people interviewed for Walters annual 10 Most Fascinating People special, which airs Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 9:30 p.m. ET on ABC. “I interviewed Miley five years ago. She was 16 years old, and who knew what her future was going to be? And now we see that she is bigger at 21 than she was as an adolescent,” Walters tells E! News. “We weren’t sure that she could make that transition, and she has.” While Walters can empathize with Cyrus’ struggle to remain successful while distancing herself from the Disney Channel show that made her famous, the TV journalist was confused about the singer’s incessant twerking. “I do not twerk, so it was not my favorite subject,” the 84-year-old admitted. But Miley isn’t alone this year, Jennifer Lawrence also made the list! “There is a quality about her, a freshness and frankness, and she happens to be just a terrifically talented woman,” Walters gushes. “This is a huge star who’s normal! And even though she hates to be called that all the time, she is.” Walters also chose Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as 2013’s It Couple. “There isn’t a week that we don’t talk about them on The View. And I also happen to like them. You know, they’re fun and they’re nice and I enjoy interviewing each of them,” she says. “They’re beautiful, they’re successful, more or less talented, and we just sort of like them. They’re fun.” The youngest person to make the list, however, has yet to even speak: it’s Prince George! “The royal baby was the biggest event of the year,” Walters tells E! News. “For a little baby who did not do interviews, he became the biggest stars.”
