I relate to Lil Kim: Miley Cyrus

Singer-actress Miley Cyrus has revealed that she feels like she was rapper Lil Kim in her past life.

The 'We Can't Stop' singer made the comments while talking about her five favourite female singers in an interview, reported Billboard.

Naming Lil Kim in the number three spot, Cyrus said, "In my past life, I feel like that was me. I feel like Lil Kim is who I am on the inside. She just makes me happy... I just love her and I can't help that I love her."

However, Cyrus didn't take sides in Kim's feud with Nicki Minaj, naming the 'Starships' singer as her fourth favourite.

"I have to put Nicki as four because I had Kim. You can't choose one, so if you say Kim, then you've got to say Nicki. And Nicki is now the Lil Kim of my generation," she said.

Cyrus also praised her godmother Dolly Parton, describing her as a "real-life Barbie doll" and a "legend", and said that Joan Jett "represents a different time when females weren't supposed to be able to kick ass the way that she came out and did".

Her fifth favourite singer was Beth Hart, whom Cyrus claimed has "one of the best voices of all time".
