Miley Cyrus wishes she'd gone to high school.

The 20-year-old star didn't complete a traditional education because of her work

on Disney TV show 'Hannah Montana' and though she had the ''best night'' of her life accompanying a male pal to his prom, she knows it wasn't the same experience other teenagers got to have.

She said: ''High school is something I wish I could have had. I still got to go to a prom but it wasn't the same. Like, people bugged me for photos when I was at the prom.

''I went with a gay guy and it was the best, most fabulous night of my whole life, but it was different because it wasn't like I was asked by my high school boyfriend or anything.

''And it wasn't like I knew everyone else at the prom, because I was just a guest. So I guess I miss having had that.''

Miley - who is engaged to Liam Hemsworth - recently radically changed her hair, cropping it short and dying it blonde, and says she feels sexier than ever with her new look.

She told Britain's OK! magazine: ''You hear your whole life that women are supposed to have long, gorgeous hair. Every movie that you see where it's like the hot dream girl, everyone always has long hair. But I think someone is sexier when I see their face.

''It takes a lot of courage to do it and when I see someone with short hair, I have respect for them.''
