Oh, Miley Cyrus. You tried!

The 'We Can't Stop' singer is enjoying her new, revamped hip-hop image so much that she proved herself to be a bit of a liar in a new interview. How so? She claimed to not know who the individual members of One Direction are ... despite there being photographic evidence to the contrary.

Cyrus sat down with Heat magazine (via MileyCyrus.bz) and denied any knowledge of the guys in 1D, citing her love of rap as the reason. Okay.

When asked about the British boy band -- the biggest on the planet right now -- Cyrus, terrified of losing her street cred, replied, "I mean, don't ask me to name a song because I can't do that, but I know what they look like."

She added, "I think I met Harry? I think backstage once ... I don't really remember that much. I just remember my sister was super excited," she said.

(For the record, Cyrus knows darn well what Harry Styles looks like.)

"I don't really know them that much," she added. "That's like, so bad, but it's like, I listen to urban."

Really, Miley? You don't remember hanging out in the studio with a certain Niall Horan?

Perhaps she was too busy trying to twerk and more focused on hanging out with her producer, Pharrell Williams, who she described as one of her closest confidants.

"Pharrell is kind of like a brother so him and I just get in the studio and just work," she said. "Even if it's not necessarily for my record, we're just always together and I tell him more than I probably tell anyone else just because you know he's not gonna say anything and it's not gonna turn out like he's gonna make a track out of it," she continued. "Also when you’re feeling a certain way I can just text him to inspire him to make a new track for me."

Maybe she'll text him about feeling apologetic and embarrassed for getting caught lying through her teeth -- or, depending on the day, her grill -- next.
