Hilary Duff Didn't Love The Pressure Of Being Squeaky Clean

Hilary Duff embraced her bad self, just privately.

Hilary said during her interview on the Elvis Duran Show she felt the pressures of being a good role model when she was younger because she “cares what people think” about her. She sees stars like Miley Cyrus doing their thing and appreciates they don’t give a ****.

“I think that Miley, she’s being authentic to who she is and wants to be and I think that’s rad,” Hilary said. “Like, unapologetically, she is going for it and being really bold and not really caring what anybody thinks.”

“I do identify with the frustrations of feeling like I have to be a good role model — or did, maybe — not so much anymore,” she added. “And that was hard because you do want to explore yourself and there’s this reputation to hold up or whatever. But I took a big break, just because I needed to, and I got to do a lot of living and soul-searching and I got to mess up, but I just did it a little more privately than all the others.”

As for when her album comes out? No clue.
