Miley Cyrus: ‘I’m Not Going to Walk Another Red Carpet’
Miley Cyrus has vowed to never walk the red carpet again. The “Wrecking Ball” singer insists she would rather focus on more important issues.
“[A year ago] I had to do the [A Very Murray Christmas] premiere, and I will never do a red carpet again,” she tells Elle. “Why, when people are starving, am I on a carpet that’s red? Because I’m ‘important?’ Because I’m ‘famous?’ That’s not how I roll. It’s like a skit – it’s like Zoolander.” Cyrus will next be seen as a judge on singing competition show The Voice and she is urging her contestants to be authentic themselves, like former U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. “I don’t want this to come off the wrong way, but I’m going to tell my contestants: Be Bernie Sanders,” she says. “Be the person people want and love. Don’t worry about the masses. That’s how you make a memorable moment. Let people talk about it.” And although she won’t be showing off her fashions on the red carpet for the show, her stylist Simone Harouche has teased that audiences are in for a treat with the 23-year-old’s wardrobe on the reality series. “I think a large portion of Miley’s audience has always been a younger demographic. If any age group would relate to her fashion sense, it would be her peers. Miley is always going to be true to herself, regardless of the event or show,” Harouche told The Hollywood Reporter. “Absolutely [our work is collaborative]. Miley is very true to herself and she knows what she wants. A lot of times, we bounce off ideas to come up with a new look. It’s always fun and I get to be creative and really go there.”
