Miley Cyrus plays piano for her dogs at home.

The 'Wrecking Ball' singer, who often posts photographs on Instagram of her loveable pooches, says she enjoys being with her pets away from the limelight and likes to perform her songs to them.

In an interview on BBC Radio 1, she said: ''I have four dogs who are super cute, mostly I just hang out with my dogs.

''I realised the other day that I sat at my piano and I played for like an hour and a half just to my dogs. And they were sitting there tilting their heads like watching me perform, and then I realised, 'I feel like they're judging me', 'This is like a real loser, This is really sad.'

''They're doing me a favour by sitting there listening to my music. But I'm like, 'Don't you realise how much my tickets cost? You guys are ungrateful, I feed you, I pick up your poop and I play for you, I'm like a perfect, good mom.' ''

Miley, who turns 21 this month, insists she isn't the wild party girl people think she is when they read about her and she actually prefers to be at home when she's not working and live a quiet life.

She said: ''I tell people that think I'm really cool, 'By the way, I'm super lame.' What you read about me, it sounds like all I do is club and go and party with Terry Richardson but actually I'm like the lamest person.

''I never leave my house because that's the only place where I've been where I can feel like I completely don't have to deal with people, or the studio, that's why I'm a workaholic. Being at the house, no-one's going to bug you.''
